Best experience at a B & B ever !! A beautiful place, truly a home away from home. Fabulous food and friendly hosts, we will be back.

- Nick & Sarah, from London, On 6 February 2019

Absolutely beautiful B&B! We couldn't have asked for anything more when we stayed with Mark and Joyce. They are a wonderful couple and make you feel right at home. Our stay was so relaxing and enjoyable that we extended it by many days. Joyce's breakfasts were to die for and got our day started off right. Mark was great at providing ideas of what to do in the local area and gave us all the information so we felt comfortable in our travels. Mark was even so hospitable to give our son his first opportunity to co-drive his tractor. The excitement in our son could not be contained and he spoke about it for weeks. We are going to be staying with Mark and Joyce again shortly and cannot wait. This is definitely a place to stay when you want a welcoming and relaxing holiday! Thank you Mark and Joyce!

We were a pair of wanderlust filled ladies taking the road one day at a time. Mark and Joyce were able to find a place for us in their beautiful estate with same day notice and it was truly a match made in heaven. We were both very new to the B&B experience, and I can say one thing for sure - they have set the bar very high, I'm founding wondering if it can even be topped.

Treat yourself to a little slice of serenity, peace and a good night's rest at the tranquil Leisure Estates. Let Joyce's amazing breakfasts give you the head start to a perfect day. Enjoy the wildlife and the birds outside the kitchen windows while you sip on a great cup of coffee. Wander the lust, perfectly manicured landscape, or enjoy a book in the great room. This home is absolutely immaculate, warm and inviting. Mark is certain to entertain with his quick witted humour and charm. You really can't go wrong, they'll make you feel like good old friends. I can't wait to return here again. Thank you Mark and Joyce for such an amazing experience!

Mark & Joyce's home and surroundings are breathtaking and their hospitality is amazing. They made us feel right at home. The rooms are very spacious and well decorated. The sunrise suite was absolutely beautiful. You went out of your way to make sure that we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and the entertainment was great. Mark & Joyce have a real gift for entertaining their guests and make their stay very enjoyable. Your B&B is by far the best we have ever been to. The pictures look beautiful but in reality everything is even better. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise. We will definitely recommend your B&B to others and hope to be back sometime. Thanks for making our weekend away so special and relaxed.

- Michael & Margriet, from Brampton, Ontario 18 May 2015

We were married at this fabulous location 3 1/2 and would not change a thing! The hospitality is exceptional as the owners went out of their way to ensure that the grounds were more gorgeous than ever. They made space in certain buildings and cleaned up the property for us. We have stunning wedding photos and the shade in the backyard is next to impossible to find in any other wedding location. The price was extremely reasonable and many of our guests said that they have never seen a more beautiful outdoor wedding!

- Nick and Lydia Heykoop, from Goderich, ON 11 February 2015

Beautiful B & B - The room was perfect and the breakfasts were outstanding. Joyce you are an amazing cook and Mark you are a great entertainer. mark's sense of humour and personality is a perfect fit for a B & B. Your home and landscape was breathtaking. We will see you again and thank you for making us feel at home. You are the perfect hosts.

Wow! We just returned from a perfect weekend at "Leisure Estates." During our brief stay it was obvious the owners, in designing, building and running their B & B are out to be their best. The place is exceptional ( even prettier than all these online photos). The location is central to St. Jacobs and the numerous other local attractions.The help we received with directions and suggestions was certainly appreciated. And then there's the fabulous breakfast food. Thanks Mark & Joyce. We will be back!

- Judy & Richard, 11 October 2013

My friend and I came to the area for rest, relaxation, shopping , and then a conference. Leisure Estates is a great place for this. We had privacy and quiet in well appointed rooms, were close to places we wanted to see and were fed by a delightful couple - Mark and Joyce. As a bonus, they have a great woods with trails. Truly an excellent place to stay.

- Gail and Virginia, from Peterborough, On. 18 June 2012

Five years we've been visiting this B&B, and it is still as exciting, warm and wonderful as ever. The hosts both go out of their way to make every guest feel special. The cooking is superb, and the entertainment is wonderful. Love it!!!

- Helen & Jeff, from Fonthill, Ontario 1 April 2011

We very much enjoyed staying in this wonderful B&B. It is run so efficiently it should satisfy even the harshest critic. I have yet to try making Joyce's oat scones (she gave me the recipe). Thanks to Mark for all the advice on places and routes. We are amazed at how much we saw in the 3 days there. The time spent at Leisure Estates during our month away from home was so memorable.

- Judy and Richard, from Cape Town, South Africa 7 November 2010

Beautiful setting! Great attention to detail. Thanks for your great suggestions, and enthusiasm. The quiet was a wonderful composing inspiration for us.

- Alison & Timothy, 23 August 2010

This was by far the grandest Mother/Daughter weekend we've had in the 8 yrs of doing this, and we admired the warmth & love you have for each other which is a rare find now a days. It was also nice to stop and notice the wildlife.We look forward to returning next year, and we'll take you up on the offer to ride your bikes on the trails.

- Suzanne, from Woodstock, On. 7 April 2010

We so enjoyed your place, the neat cozy room and delicious breakfast. Your genuine hospitality makes your B&B stand out as a place to return to. Thanks so much.

- Kathy, from Burlington,On. 20 March 2010

After holidaying for 16 yrs, this has been by far the most exciting and most memorable fun vacation we've had. We will never forget your morning skit, the neat and clean rooms, impeccable lawns and scrumptious breakfasts.

- Betty,Darlene, Lois, Doris, from Glencoe, Mooretown, Dresden, Croton On. 10 March 2010

- Anonymous, from St. Jacobs / Elmira 6 March 2009

Enjoyed our recent stay in the "House of many doors". Did you say 74? Appreciated the cheerful, non intrusive atmosphere and the humorous skit about farm life. We will be back.

- Dave & Sheila, from St. Catharines, On. 7 January 2009

This is our 2nd visit but definitely "NOT" our last. We have recommended LEISURE ESTATES far and wide! See you again soon.....
