The stone house was built using local stone from the island including Jasper Congolomerate. The porch swing on the wooden verandah is a wonderful spot on a warm summer evening

“A real home away from home”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A beautifully appointed and restored heritage home in a perfect location. Walking distance to the marina and main street in Richards Landing. Lots of nice little touches like big fluffy towels, extra blankets and a laundry drying rack outside. Also really appreciated the bottle of local maple syrup and personal welcome note that greeted us!A sweet touch. Lovely private yard with fire pit and covered porch made for some great evening meals and stargazing.
The twin beds in second bedroom are flimsy/springy and not well suited to adults, but would be fine for kids.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone who appreciates the privacy of a cottage stay but with a touch of class.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Island Stone House. I love the swing on the porch especially in the evenings. I agree about the twin beds. We are in the process of replacing those mattresses. The one bed is an antique single which makes it a tiny little bit shorter than the standard bed but that tiny difference means custom work and more time. New mattresses will be in place soon! We hope you will come back and visit us.
