Our stay with a group of 10 people at Dahlia House was fantastic! The space is so much brighter and larger than the photos make it seem. Lots of thoughtful touches (games, magazines, shampoo/toiletries) and a spacious kitchen for cooking. We will be back!

.... because perfection doesnt exist! We had a wonderful week in a gorgeous environment. Beautiful gardens, play areas for the kids, and the house met all our expectations. The owner is charming and helpful. Everywhere in the house and in the gardens we could appreciate her talent as an artist. So close to perfection that we cannot find anything negative!

Our group of 9 had an amazing stay at the Dahlia House. The owner, Danielle, greeted us upon arrival to help us check in. The home itself is a beautifully restored school house with a modern kitchen and great loft space. We loved the eclectic mix of rustic furniture and art. It comfortably fit our whole group. A couple things to keep in mind are that the master bedroom is a full loft that doesnt have a door and there is only 1 actual stand-up shower. But this was totally fine for our group. The outdoor space was really enjoyable and we had a nice time relaxing in the evenings around the fire pit. We highly recommend the Dahlia House to any large groups or families staying in the PEC area. We would love come back again next year.

Our group of 10 had a wonderful stay at Dahlia House. It was the perfect backdrop to to celebrate friendship and turning 30! Despite our age we thoroughly enjoyed the trampoline and the tree-house. There were a lot of laughs around the kitchen table and campfire. The house really feels like home away from home. We loved discovering new interesting piece of art at every turn. PEC is a great place to explore wineries and cute towns like Wellington. We hope to be back again next year!

Staying at the Dahlia House was so much fun. The owner is very kind and quickly reactive to any tiny issues or concerns we may have experienced during our stay. The place is so clean and cozy. I would definitely consider staying there again for a nice getaway. We were a pretty large group but never felt crammed! It was very spacious and the backyard space is beautiful. With a car you can get anywhere within 20-40 mins but at night it's nice to be removed and secluded from the noise. Long story short: great place, great host, would recommend!

We loved how stocked the kitchen was with every dish and utensil we could have ever needed to create lovely group meals while we were there. We LOVED the house itself and the fishies - it was very homey, and the bedrooms were super cozy. We also wished we'd spent more time there so we could have made better use of the huge and sunny backyard. And the trampoline!

This house was a PERFECT venue for my best friend's bachelorette trip to PEC. We spent a weekend here and fell in love with the property. It is so clean and huge, but there is a cottage feel to the place that made everyone feel extra cozy. The beds were super comfy and there were a ton of clean linens and supplies - anytime we needed something we were able to find it. We were especially happy to find a never-ending supply of dishes/utensils and appliances to create some amazing at-home group dinners for nine. Also, the backyard is HUGE and sunny - great for lounging around - and there is a trampoline! (which we made use of!)

This family of 10 came together to this beautiful home to celebrate and appreciate. We celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of Mom and Dad. So, we enjoyed some family time, great food and gathering memories. We gathered around the fire pit to ask 50 questions of the happy couple. We reminisced and learned new things! Thank you for the beautiful place. We loved being surrounded by this home to share in all we appreciated.

We had a great time at this place! We do an annual friends cottage trip to Sandbanks and Vicki's Veggies Tomato Fest, and had a great time! Really enjoyed the fire pit and large country kitchen! Very nicely decorated - and gracious hosts! Thanks for leaving the tomatoes and basil!
