Your living space is comfortable and bright, with lots of picturesque windows and high ceilings. There is a walkout to a private area where you can relax, and unwind, enjoying the sounds of nature and some farm animals, such as horses, minis, donkeys, goats, chickens, cats, 2 Australian cattle dogs and even a pig.
We love our animals and we welcome yours as we are a pet friendly farm. A pet fee of $50/pet paid at check in. Please note DOGS MUST be on a leash when on the property.

The space
The property is a peaceful and beautiful place. You will hear the roosters or donkeys as they are the most vocal around here.
Guests are welcome to visit with the animals. We always love doing the animal tour. You are also welcome to explore our trails out back, whether it’s a walk, jog, bike ride (lots of hills) or even snowshoeing.

Depending on the season, there’s lots to see and do in the area. From hiking, to mountain biking, snowshoeing, downhill and cross country skiing, sightseeing and lots of shopping, eateries and wineries. Within a short driving distance there are a number of small towns which host a variety of shops, bakeries, restaurants, beaches and more.

(We also have 2 12x12 wooden corrals for riders that would like to bring their horses. Access to water. Please bring your own hay and everything you will need for your horse. Proof of insurance needed and horses must be up to date with vaccines).

Guest access
You will have your own private space with a walkout, you can also enjoy the yard in front of the house where you will see some lovely sunsets. Access to the back deck is for the owners only.

Please respect all animals and don’t enter the barn or paddocks on your own. We are more than happy to get you an up close and personal visit with the animals.

Other things to note
We hope that you will come experience and enjoy country life. Make some memories and make yourselves at home.

Hi there, we are loving being hosts with Airbnb. We love our property and our animals and thought why not share it with others. We have lived here for 4 years and we are enjoying the area, though we do spend a lot of time at home lol. We do need to get out and do some exploring but it’s hard to leave this little piece of paradise. After serving 35 years with the RCMP, hubby John enjoys his retired days as Firefly Ridges own farm hand. Along with helping out around the farm I also work part time as an esthetician with a quaint little studio here on the property. Our newest venture is beekeeping! We are looking forward to having Firefly Ridge honey later this year!
