The Stable first started taking its current form in 2013 when we discovered its obvious appeal in the shape of vintage garage attached to an even older house. A heritage listed building, from the early 1900's, there was a lot of work to do in order to preserve and highlight the historic handsomeness. It was only while walking around the buildings that we discovered the troughs used to feed the oxen and horses when the building was used in its original form... the stable. Restoration began, and slowly the delightful retreat emerged from the thick walls and tall wooden ceilings amidst the wild vines and over grown fruit trees. Every effort was made to keep the building's rustic, country charms while adding a stylish interior to keep guests comfortable and happy.
