This place is great for art lovers. Many artists use this space for their working studios. A good bistro, galleries, museum and artistic boutiques as well, all rolled into a historic old mill. Just lovely! Highly recommended.

If you've ever been to The Distillery District in Toronto, you'll see that this is a cultured, fun, beautiful mini version of it. You'll see world-class art... meet world-class artists and artisans, jewelers... Cute little bistro. Check out their event schedule. Incredibly peaceful country setting....More

An assortment of quality local artisanal items including art/clothing/jewelry. In addition, a good array of artifacts from the early 20th century. There is a small coffee shop with terrific chilli.

We went there for a wedding, which was lovely. We adimired much of the art, but more than anything, loved the way the building had been preserved, and how well it's historical artifacts had been curated.
