For four decades, your hostess, Donna Dillman, has been an entrepreneur, having owned and managed a pet store, a B&B and guest house, (10 minutes north of the current location) a general store and a farm. In 1999, she began working as an energy healer, leading to her work as a life coach. More recently, she has also supported her partner, Cam Allen, in the renovation of the former Church, where the B&B is located, as well as in the construction of the newly added Day Spa.

Throughout, her life has revolved around her children and theirs. In 2007, she undertook what turned into a 68-day fast over the issue of uranium extraction in nearby Robertsville. The effort highlighted her belief that we need to preserve this abundant planet for the generations to come, and that the world changes when we do. The Fall of 2010 found her walking the Camino; a 750 km trek from Pamplona to Santiago de Compostela, bringing her to an increased awareness of her place on the planet.

Donna thrives on connection and is thrilled to be offering the opportunity to overnight, relax and rejuvenate in the beauty that is the Lanark Highlands, her home for over 35 years. Note that the property and businesses are for sale, privately. We are hoping to attract new buyers who are as enthusiastic as we are and who will continue with business as usual. Call 613-259-9988 to book today.
