Chetwyn Farms is an active and popular working farm that hosts visitors from around the world, VIP events, tours and workshops during the operating season. For that reason it is difficult for us to share this farm experience and offer the house for farm-stay holidays.
The winter months however - when the farm is closed to the public is a perfect time to stay at our farm. After the summer crowds leave our small island community, Prince Edward County provides a peaceful & bucolic environment in the off-season allowing visitors to relax and enjoy a quintessential winter holiday in a rural setting. Most wineries, restaurants and attractions remain open year round. Shop, dine and enjoy what the County has to offer without the hustle and bustle of summer visitors.
When our farm closes at Christmas we offer the house and farm for an exclusive farm-stay vacation. You and up to 5 guests can enjoy Christmas holidays or other weeks during the winter months (December 2019-April 2020) at Chetwyn farms. It's an exclusive and unique opportunity to spend time on a working alpaca farm in beautiful prince Edward county.
Nestled along the “Golden Mile of Prince Edward County” - Closson road is dotted with world class wineries. Our turn of the century farm cottage has been lovingly restored and tastefully decorated featuring an open kitchen with island and a great room with stone fireplace. A dining room with harvest table for 6 guests adjoins the well-appointed living room including a baby grand piano providing an intimate and unforgettable experience to unwind with family or friends over the Christmas holidays.
A master bedroom with 2 piece en-suite and second guest room with full 4 piece bath are also on the second floor with a smaller guest bedroom downstairs. There is a three piece bath on the main floor providing comfortable accommodation for up to 6 guests
Enjoy the 6 person hot tub while watching the stars in the clear skies or the alpaca and horses in the nearby paddocks. Hike or snowshoe in the 54 acres of fields on the farm or cross country ski along Closson road to many wineries open during the holiday winter season. A short drive to Wellington in under ten minutes brings you to the Drake Devonshire and other restaurants along with grocery and liquor store.
Chetwyn farms is home to award winning alpaca and while it operates a pop-up shop on the farm during the summer months the farm and shop are closed to the public as of December 20 allowing you to fully immerse yourselves in the tranquility and splendour of a traditional country Christmas in unparalleled quiet of the county in the winter season.
