Thornbank Farm is bursting with history and tranquility. Rev. James Ross established The West River Seminary and Theological Hall here at this very site. Ross would later become President at Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS. The Farm is located on the east side of the West River, between the Durham and Lochbroom Bridges. It is nestled out on a peninsula along the West River. Fields, eagles, and giant old growth Maple trees compliment the overwhelming peacefulness of the West River.
“Nice little apartment with everything you need, nice hot shower with bath tub, coffee maker, stove, wifi and much more. Chris brought us 2 beers from the local brewery which we enjoyed a lot. He responded imediately to our messages. It was very cold outside (-20°C) when we stayed here. Make sure to bring some slippers cause the floor gets quite cold. We really enjoyed our short stay. The little farm looks beautiful!”

“Had a lovely weekend at Sarah's cottage. My partner and I, along with our pooch stayed for two nights. The cottage is clean, modern, well equipped and has a nice view of the lake. Sarah was great at communicating with us when we had questions. Would love to come back when it's warmer to take advantage of the large deck and firepit.”

“Andrea & Shawn went out of their way to help me out during an huge snow storm. I contacted them at 3pm without a reservation and they had their driveway shovelled by hand an hour later to make sure I could park for the night. On top of that, Shawn was out again at 6:30am the next morning to help clear the 30” snowbank so I could go to work. Now that is what I call great device!! Will look the up again for sure.”
