Although it is hard to find (use your navigation) when you arrive the place is beautiful. It has very good beds, showers and restrooms. The best beds I had in Canada so far. Of course it is still a hostel so don't expect a whirlpool or anything. But what makes this place so beautiful is its host. Kevin who is putting his whole heart into this project and loves his guests. Thank you Kevin, I really hope we will meet again!

The place is completely different from what is described on website. In reality it is construction zone. We booked expensive family room which was suppose to have, according to description which included pictures, 1 single bed and 1 double bed, private entrance, spa bath, and more, but instead we were offered dormitory bunk beds with no privacy at all. We chose not to stay there because didn't feel it was safe and the place needs much more work to put in before accepting clients.

This is not a hotel it is a camping barn in the middle of nowhere not near town. Unstaffed, hard to find, dark, scary, dirty, no privacy, no comforts. We booked expensive rooms which we could not find when we got there.

When we arrived he warned us to park our cars off the wind in order to not lose our doors. This came as a shock to us. When we questioned him, he told us what had happened earlier that day. FLASHBACK: A guest comes running back to the barn. But something was suspicious about this scene. Kevin knew: something was wrong. GUEST: I lost the door of my car. The wind blew it away. KEVIN: I can fix this! Hop on my Motorcycle. It's name is Night Owl. (Starts Engine, they both board the motorcycle) The guest who was over 6 ft was horrified, even shaking, but K-Dog wasn't scared at all. The door was blown clean off, covered in snow GUEST: OHHH MYYYY!!!!! K-DOG: Ya got any tools GUEST: (sheepishly) no K-DAWG: Well you must have a tire iron Kevin looks in the trunk, finds the tire iron, walks to the door, he knew the tire iron wouldn't be enough so he picked up a pice of drift wood, using both he was able to jam it back on, it was almost brand new but one thing was wrong, the fender was bent, he used the tire iron to bend it back KEVIN: Good as new GUEST: TOTALLY FERD DUDE! Have this nice tip, I appreciate your help Cevin QEVIN: Any time! FERD up top!! (They high 5) PRESENT TIME: He looks at us in crazed eyes, his stare as cold as the freshly fallen snow that lay at our feet, a smile broke and he said cheerfully " And that's why your beds aren't made yet" He then after that he gave us a tour of his vintage barn and told us its wonderful history. He directed us to a nerdy trail. After the trail we returned made dinner and enjoyed a night talking to our lovely host Sevin. He is a great person and has put a lot of work into the barn. He shared great stories and had comfortable beds. Great trip. Perfect stop before heading to the Cabot Trail

I had a very different experience than the previous person. This place is a work in progress and I suspect that once done, it will be an absolutely fantastic place to stay. The owner and the employee that I met were extremely friendly and helpful, and really seemed to care about their guests. They are extremely proud of their work and show it when you get the grand tour. I found the beds to be very comfortable and I slept well. The bathrooms were very clean and well stocked. One thing to keep in mind, this is a cash only establishment. That said, banks are few and far between in these parts, so make sure you have the cash (and few establishments are willing to do cash back on debit purchases. I had to do some scrounging to cobble the cash together). There isn't a sign on the street, so make sure you actually have the street address with you when you drive up. All in all, I give it an "average" rating because it is in complete. Never the less, I do see this as being a great hostel some day and look forward to it.
