Find yourself dreaming of a cozy little country getaway in a space filled with warmth, history, charm, and style? Then the Hartman Church is a perfect destination. Just minutes from Toronto and other smaller local towns, the guesthouse is inspired by old English country houses and excels in a slightly eccentric mixture of antique and contemporary decor creating a timeless interior design. This historical space is a stylish yet comfortable and practical destination for travellers.
“In the midst of the pandemic, my husband and I needed to find a place to stay near family. After a lot of searching, we were lucky enough to find and book the Hartman guesthouse for an extended period. Our reason for staying was not a weekend getaway. It is hard to express—during a very strange time in our lives—just how much solace and comfort we got from the rustic wide open space and beautifully lush yard (which we happened to experience in full spring bloom). We honestly felt at times transported to a simpler world in the best possible way. Coming from a small apartment in a big city, the natural light, fresh air, and simple but well-thought-out design and details made it easy to feel at home—to cook, to work, to meditate, practice yoga, relax. On top of that, Sandra and Alex are incredible people. They are kind, responsive, accommodating, and easy to talk to (honestly, if you have any opportunity to chat with them, you should take it! Especially if you love and appreciate these kinds of historic properties they way we, and they do). It is also definitely worth mentioning if you enjoy hiking or trail running, there are countless options within a five-minute drive. An all-around wonderful spot that I cannot recommend highly enough. We look forward to a time in the future when the world is less strange and we can book a real vacation here.”

“Great bang for you buck. Very nice stay for the price and what you get. I was expecting the place to be subpar but it definitely exceeded expectations. The fireplace was on when we arrived (which was perfect as it was freezing outside). This small gesture was such a nice touch to walking in through the doors late in the evening. Very clean, well taken care of. Literally no complaints whatsoever.”
