As soon as I opened my car door, I felt a wave of calmness. I had arrived at this relaxing, country side, guest house and was warmly welcomed by Alison and Steve. The back lawn is immense. The patio, pool and jacuzzi were right outside my door. Their attention to detail was impressive. Its the little things that make a stay truly memorable. The breakfast sandwich and juices were already deposited in my fridge. The kitchen table was already set up with the place settings and the homemade jam jar. The washroom was spotless. The towels were neatly folded and accessible. The golf courses and farmer's markets were a short drive away. I am from the city and the Utica Guest House and the surroundings were a very appreciated break from the hustle of the city.
Good location for Port Perry and surrounding areas, one straight road to Utica turn right and there. We were welcomed warmly by Stephen and Alison, nothing was too much trouble! Travelling from the UK for over two weeks and a wedding we had a lot of heavy luggage and it was no trouble for Stephen to take our luggage from our car in and three four days later out again, which we really appreciated as two ladies travelling.
Accommodation is a home from home! We lacked nothing and appreciated the extra touches. Brilliant hairdryer!
We were able to use the terrace, hot tub and swimming pool. Actually we are now at a Marriott hotel for the night before our return flight and wish we were still there!
Breakfast was supplied for first two mornings in the fridge for a self serve, lots fresh coffee and tea.
We recently stayed at the Utica Guesthouse, conveniently located between Port Perry and Uxbridge. We went to a local spa, enjoyed lunch at an excellent eatery and walked and shopped in charming downtown Port Perry. We were delighted to find a very good farm market a short drive from the guesthouse, as we made our evening meals in the fully-equipped kitchen.
After our days out exploring, we were so happy to relax in the hot tub.
The guesthouse is truly more of an apartment, very well supplied, with kind and attentive hosts.
My parents and I stayed a night while visiting family in the area. Our only complaint was that we didn't get to spend more time at the guest house!! The house was fantastic; clean, comfortable beds and quiet. The owners were incredibly accommodating, friendly and made you feel right at home. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and recommend it to friends. Thank you Alison and Stephen!
We stayed for a week with our children. The place is clean, comfortable, warm and inviting. Unlike other places we rented that had the 'bare minimum,' the guest house had everything we needed. The breakfast had very generous portions. The owners are friendly and helpful. They lent us a high chair for our youngest and even got some halloween treats for the kids. Groceries, and other shops and restaurants are a short drive away. Would stay here again without hesitation.
