The Manilla Church
Ranked #1 of 1 Manilla B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 May 2016

This place is absolutely gorgeous and so spacious. The photos do not to it justice. It was the perfect getaway for the night. We wish that we could have spent more time here. The layout is interesting and location is easy to get to from Toronto. We loved it and we enjoyed having the kitchen to make our own dinner. The host is so kind and helpful as well.

The Manilla Church is a B&B that is a wonderfully decorated and charm that is
distinctive for a truly great weekend holiday ! Close to many GTA, Uxbridge, Port Perry
and Lindsay as a tourist base for travelling ! A must weekend for anyone !

We booked this house on AirBnB for a quiet girls weekend getaway and could NOT have been more pleased!

We went in the winter so there wasn't much in terms of outdoor activity, but that wasn't what we were looking for anyways (still popped out for a walk to get some fresh air, and to load up on snacks from the corner store).

The house is beautiful and the details are so interesting and the interior decor is cool and still accessible while showing off the owners personal tastes. There's even a swing on the main floro! Everything was clean and in excellent working order and there was ample space for all of us. The grounds are well kept and we actually discussed coming back in the summer to enjoy the backyard.

Our hosts were so welcoming and friendly and made sure that our fire never went out (we went through a lot of wood). We pretty much didn't leave the couch in front of the fireplace and it was so so comfortable while we read, chatted and snacked the weekend away.

The kitchen had plenty of space for the 4 of us to maneuver around plus storage for all our goodies. We each had our own rooms which met each of our needs and we loved that they were spaced out so we had our privacy.

Don't hesitate to book this charming escape for whatever you're looking for. Would be great for hosting extended family get togethers, or more girls-only getaways (we can't wait to book ours again!).

If you like beautiful, surprising spaces in surprising places...check this out. The Manilla Church Guesthouse is a repurposed church... with doors that open onto a vast, beautifully crafted great room that holds elegant couches, original stained glass windows...and a swing hanging from rafters 20 feet up.

Sarah's delicious baking and Dan's collection of Rolling Stones artifacts are delightful additions to the experience. Rooms are comfortable, linens are crisp, the kitchen is well stocked and Netflix is on. Read your newspaper in the garden, take a walk around this tiny, pretty village, and be happy that there's no nearby Tim Hortons, MacDonald's or Pizza Hut to spoil the view. (But you can get a decent dinner in a nearby village 20 minutes away.)

Room Tip: The second floor bedrooms have doors that shut. The loft is bigger - but open to the great room.

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!
