This is a really unique spot. TJ Stables are doing some amazing things for the endangered Ojibway Spirit Horses and the sharing of Indigenous knowledge. My husband and I stayed with my sister and her friend inside of the cabin.
Terry and John went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. We originally planned to stay in the Tipi but it was very wet outside (mix of snow/rain) so Terry gave us the option to stay in the cabin where we would stay dry. Terry and John payed for our dinner out in town our first night since it was too wet to cook anything outside. They gave us a ton of warm blankets and had a heater going in the cabin to keep us warm. My husband is really interested in hunting and the farm life so this trip was a dream come true for him. He got to spend his morning chatting with John while he skinned a Buck he shot the day before. The girls and I learned how to make coffee over the fire and we were very proud of ourselves. David went above and beyond as he led us through the Spirit Horse Encounter which was truly a beautiful and eye-opening experience. Terry gave us some venison to cook over the fire for our last night and sent us home with a few more pieces. This trip nourished our souls- a combination of adventure, rest and education. Highly recommend checking this place out!

When we arrived, John picked us up in his golf cart and gave us a great tour of the farm. John showed us how tipis are built, and how they functioned. It was an amazing experience and we certainly learnt a lot. The tipi was very comfortable, and John set us up a campfire which burnt all night. I recommend this stay to anybody looking for a peaceful getaway! Would definitely come back! Thank you John!

This was an incredible experience and one that will live long in the memory.

Our children especially just loved every moment of our stay and want to make this an annual trip! They loved feeding the animals and exploring the farm including driving the golf cart!

Terry and John were so kind and welcoming and couldn’t do enough to make us feel at home.

Getting to meet the spirit horses was a unique experience and a really special part of the trip too.

I couldn’t recommend a stay here enough to families wanting a unique, memorable stay with truly warm and welcoming hosts. Thank you Terry and John!

Breakfast tea heated over the campfire outside our accommodation for the night. Perfect!

Howdy William and Family; John and I are still talking about your amazing family and how involved both your children were in anything we exposed them to. You are doing a fine job raising your kids. We are delighted they will be reminding you to come again in the future. Experiences with guests like your family encourages us to continue to offer this unique opportunity.

Where do I start. This is a healing place. Terry and John are extraordinary people, doing extraordinary things in their community and beyond. You can see their passion on throughout their property, their staff and them as a beautiful couple.
I was the FIRST TO STAY IN THEIR COWBOY BUNKIE which was such a beautiful little space that made me feel right at home. It's tucked away at the back of their property, for just the right amount of privacy and rustic-vibe. Specially when you add on a trail ride! Would highly recommend, my ride leader Kylie was so perfect, knowledgable and enthusiastic!
My 2nd night I was honoured to received a medicine walk as well as a SPIRIT HORSE ENCOUNTER which I feel could soothe anyone's soul. The tipi is beautiful and it was very fun to learn how the structure is made.
This is a special place that words cannot describe.....you'll just have to visit to be able to understand it's rejuvenating energy.

Thank you Terry and John (and team) for making me feel so comfortable, safe, cared for and for making me feel like apart of your family! Hope to see you in the future.

Curious little things.Terry and John have their own garden that is very well thought out and very tasty! Trust me! Was so honoured to be able to sit in on an awards ceremony for the local First Nations kids that did such a wonderful job, learning, growing and trusting during their summer program!Terry and John were the greatest hosts and cooked me a beautiful wild turkey pie during my Spirit horse encounter!

My friends and I stayed over at TJ's for 1 night in a Tipi! Terry and John were extremely friendly hosts, and were there to help accomodate us throughout the trip, from arrival till the end! It was a one-of-a-kind, quaint expereince, and I would definitely come back for more another time!

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Terry and John and given a tour of their property via golf cart. When they brought us to the tipi site, we were blown away by the set up they had prepared. Not only is the tipi itself beautiful, it was decorated with various furs and antlers, we opted for the bedding add-on and were kept very comfortable with what was provided. Outside the tipi you will find a fully stocked cooking area, fire pit, wooden chairs and benches, a pond and a view of the spirit horses--at night the moon perfectly sits right above the horse pasture, it's stunning!
What really made the experience special was the hospitality shown by Terry & John. John shared some of his Metis history, demonstrated how to make a tipi, and lit a fire in our tipi while Terry and him shared stories of their life--you will not meet two more interesting and kind people!
In the morning we were taken to their garden and chicken coop where we were able to pick and collect whatever we wanted for breakfast! John helped us cook an absolutely delicious breakfast with fresh cracked eggs and veggies--this was one of the highlight of the trip!
In the afternoon we booked a horse trail ride for an hour and had a blast riding around the woods on their property. Other things to note is that they have the cutest goats and bunnies that you can pet and feed anytime during your stay.
Washrooms are a quick walk away, they are kept very clean and there is also a shower available for use, which was very nice. I can't say enough good things about our time at TJ Stables.
if you are looking for a unique and fun weekend stay this is the place to go, it gets a 10/10 recommendation from me!!!
Thank you for an unforgettable experience, we'll be back :)
