The new home: This FLW inspired home sits on a high point of its surrounding 100 acres. It was built on a granite ridge that rises 20 feet above the general lay of the land at the front of the property. The overall goal with the design was to build an innovative home where “light, air and vista permeated the whole with a sense of unity" and fit the natural surroundings. There is an emphasis on natural light so there are lots of windows and they are large. The east facing front wall of the great room has windows that start at the floor and rise 14 feet. There are large corner windows at each end of the building to maximize the view and the light. Throughout attention was given to airflow and most windows open to catch the air.

It is an easy drive into Orillia with its interesting shops, restaurants and attractions. A 30 minute day trip drive can take you south to Barrie or north to Muskoka each with a huge variety of things to see and do.

Our extended family spent a summer weekend at Maple Valley and really enjoyed the variety of activities available! Even considering how close Rancho Relaxo is to Orillia and Washago, we saw both deer AND bears during our two night stay! The animals must be as relaxed with the place as we were. Leanne and Mark have gained themselves some future repeat customers!

Response from Leanne:
Thanks Robert for your review and I wanted to mention that in the 16 years I have never seen a bear and my husband has only seen a bear twice! So I do want to say to future guests this is a very rare occurrence and it must have been awesome to see. :). Hope to see you again!

We spent a weekend here at Rancho Relaxo and had a very wonderful time. The cottage was beautifully designed and is very clean with hi-tech appliances. The various spaces provided by Mark and Leanne here are very interesting as you arrive at a modern cottage space, the bunkie is a heritage sugar shack, and if you're adventurous and want the ultimate escape, deep into the 100 acres forest, there's a mini cabin in the woods by the creek. Mark and Leanne are very nice hosts as well and are both highly responsive in messages and phone calls. Thank you so much for hosting our group. We will definitely look forward to coming back in the future.

Wow, what a great place to escape the city. If I could sum up our stay in a few words, I would say it's exactly as advertised: relaxing, scenic, and very comfortable. The house itself is very open and allows for the entire group to be in the same common space which is fantastic. The tall ceilings make the space feel even larger than it already is. The entire place is well stocked with everything you would need (like at your own home) and it was very clean upon arrival. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The BBQ was great for our whole group and there's plenty of seating. We also enjoyed the paved area for basketball and the paths are easy to follow. Leanne was very easy to communicate with and I was always provided with a prompt response. Highly recommended.

This was the perfect retreat for the may 2-4 weekend. The house and the property were beautiful with 100 acres to explore that had a basketball court and a waterfall. Leanne was very kind and helpful, and checked up on us to see if we needed anything. Would highly recommend this to any group looking to get away with beautiful scenery.
