History

This property was originally settled in 1832 by William Stevenson and his wife, Elizabeth Pringle. They immigrated from Edinburgh, Scotland before settling in Canada. Originally, they built a log home, which was later replaced by a 12-room building in 1850. Their grandson, Theodore Loblaw, refurbished this house in 1927, turning it into a summer getaway haven. It also featured three sun porches, a billiard room and banquet halls. The farmland was eventually sold, but the grand house and large part of the property is still in the possession of William Stevenson’s 6th generation family descendent.

Sue and Stephan Milne, and their daughters Molly and Shannon are the current 6th nd 7th generation family owners. Sue and Stephan purchased the property in 2003. They lovingly restored the property to its former glorious state and have added an 1100 sq. ft. full service, organic spa complere with couples massage room. The property is open for overnight guests, weddings and events of all kinds, and provides exquisite spa services in a relaxing and memorable environment.

    Our perfect day, made possible by Stevenson Farms

    I have all the respect and gratitude for Stevenson Farms and how they helped us pull off our perfect day! From the very start Stephen and Susanne were flexible, professional and simply lovely people to work with. We booked the entire property for a whole weekend, and the team was nothing shy of amazing! Every detail was accounted for. I cannot give them high enough praise. If you are considering Stevenson Farms for your wedding day, I would urge you to lock down your date - it won't be long until this venue blows beyond it's "hidden gem" status.

    Stevenson helped make magic happen!

    My husband and I decided to reserve Stevenson for our wedding. We reserved the entire venue for the weekend (less 1 room on the Friday night) and took our immediate family (including our children) and our wedding party up with us.
    It was the most magical weekend we could have asked for. Stevenson was very accommodating of our requests, some of which required creativity and extra effort to accommodate our 60 person wedding.
    The front room (can’t remember the name) was very comfortable for my husband and I and we also got 8 women ready in that room in the wedding day, including hair and makeup.
    The breakfasts served on Saturday and Sunday were AH-MAZING. Fires always lit in the pit in the evenings which offered options for our guests to dance or sit by the campfire.
    The kids loved running free on the property and it was nice for a change knowing they could explore and it was safe for them to do so unattended for a while. They were also accompanied by a cute little pup who looovveessss people!
    We were a little worried about whether people not staying there would be able to get cabs or ubers back to their hotels but it turned out not to be an issue at all.
    Everyone enjoyed their time at Stevenson and we truly look forward to returning in the future.
    Thank you Sue, Steve and Julie!!!
