Our daugher booked this B & B for us and she could not have picked a nicer spot. What a peaceful place, delightful host and serene feeling. We were warmly welcomed by Jen and shown around this amazing converted historical building and taken to our lofty sitting room adjacent to 2 of the guest bedrooms. Everything was impeccably clean yet very cozy. The lovely pieces of art, the history of the building, the whimsical items around the pace and the passion of the owner in creating this community friendly space added to the welcoming atmosphere.
We will find excuses to come here again and tell our friends about this "secret get away" place!

My girlfriend and I decided to catch a concert in Lindsay, and thought it would be nice to make a mini-vacation of the weekend. I'm really glad we decided to stay at The Brick Church - everything about the place is spectacular. I knew right away that Jen would be a great host when she offered to pick up our concert tickets for us in person, so that we could save on the Ticketmaster service charges.

As soon as we arrived in Manilla (following a quick drive from downtown Toronto) we were charmed by the church, which has been beautifully converted to a warm, welcoming and comfortable space. It's super clean and cozy, while retaining many of the elements of the 1869-built church, such as the huge wood beams and even the church bell.

Shortly after we arrived, with just a couple hours before the concert, Jen made us an excellent dinner featuring an amazing homemade chutney and carrots from her mom's own garden! We felt completely at home by the wood stove, and our room was very clean and comfortable, just like the rest of the church. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, too; I actually tried to replicate the recipe the next day for some friends.

Jen is an excellent, friendly and entertaining host, but is definitely careful to give her guests their space (which isn't the case at some B&Bs). Her living space is in the basement of the church, so we never felt like we were intruding on her home, and we were very comfortable.

We would definitely recommend the Brick Church to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway without going too far from the big city. In fact, we already have.

From the minute we arrived at the Brick Church, we were impressed by the warm and welcoming reception we received. Jennifer greeted us with iced tea and other options following a long drive.
The building is unique and lovingly renovated - full of historical details and charm. Our bedroom was spacious and tastefully decorated.

Our 2 day getaway was food for the soul. We look forward to returning soon to this hauntingly beautiful retreat.
