This modest farmhouse is located on our dairy farm and is inspected by CITQ/Tourism Quebec. It is fully furnished with five bedrooms, a laundry room, lounge, dining room, an equipped kitchen and Wifi. Bedding, towels and some toiletries are provided.

Furnished with antiques, there are two double, one single and two 3/4 antique beds available in 5 rooms. One of the double bedrooms is downstairs near the bathroom. There are also comfortable cots available for additional guests - advance notice needed. Air conditioning available May to September. The house has wifi internet, an equipped kitchen, dining room, lounge and laundry room. There is a locked annex or shed for your bicycles if you are participating in the Circuit du Paysan bicycle tour. Towels, bed linens and some basic toiletries are provided, but bring your own groceries. Smoking is not permitted in the house.

My husband and I, along with the help of our children, run a dairy farm in Ormstown that has been in the family since the 1920's. Originally built by Peter Reid of Scotland, the stone cottage across the road from our farmhouse is surrounded by the land that we till. To supplement our income we are offering the stone house as a weekend retreat or vacation home, and as a place to hold family reunions or gatherings of friends. On our farm we have cows (of course!), three Morgan horses as well as dogs and cats. I enjoy quilting (hence the quilts on all the beds!), horseback riding, antiquing, reading and gardening. I am originally from Switzerland and can speak fluent Swiss German, as well as English and French.

We are eventually going to retire in this stone house when our son takes over the farm. It is unique in that it has not been "modernized" too much over the years. There are of course the modern necessities such as a proper bathroom, fridge, stove, washer, dryer, and of course Wifi..! But the charm of the old days is still there.
You can walk to the village, although the house is on a busy road and there is a lot of traffic it is both "in the country" and very close to stores, the library and restaurants. Some people may prefer a quiet retreat where only bird song is heard. This is not the case because of the traffic. The house is best suited for family reunions, weddings and such because it is a lot bigger inside than it seems on the photos.
Only two of us ( Jan Whitcomb and myself) stayed there. We reserved for 3 people but the other person made other plans and we did not know. None of the bedrooms upstairs were used. We went out and bought a more usable frying pan which was fine. Someone left the oven covered inside with oven cleaner so we washed it out before using it. Otherwise the place was warm and clean. We appreciated the Christmas decorations. Thank you. Joe Slocum
Ormstown is a unique, quiet village where most people speak both French and English. There are many restaurants and a rare, in this age, 3 story family owned department store where you can find just about everything. Ormstown also has antique stores, 2 hardware stores, artisan/gift shops and clothing stores. If you like fast food there is a Subway and Tim Hortons less than 1 km away. An excellent gym is within walking distance, as are two grocery stores. There is a wharf in the village where you can go fishing. American Eel, Black Crappie, Brook Trout, Channel Catfish, Lake Trout, Largemouth Bass, Muskie, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye and Yellow Perch have been caught in the Chateauguary River. A fishing license, available for purchase in town, is required. Enjoy a drive through our beautiful countryside and admire our covered bridge. Go kayaking in the river, join the "kayak safari" (kayaks provided - beginners welcome) in Huntingdon. A nice campground park with swimming is 10 minutes by car. Check out the guide book for more fun places to visit during your stay.
