Dr. James Gun Inn

This summer we had the pleasure of staying at the Dr. James Gun Inn, a charming century home, located in the centre of the town of Durham. Emigrating from Scotland, Dr. Gun had the home built as his personal residence. Boasting large principal rooms, the home has a graceful elegance, surrounded by stately trees, lawns and gardens and backs onto the beautiful Saugeen river.

Michael and Nobuyo Stadtlander
at Eigensinn Farm

A couple of weeks ago Deborah and I had dinner at Michael Stadtlander's Eigensinn Farm. We had heard so much about the farm but we had never spoken to anyone who had actually eaten there. I was curious to eat at a restarurant that had been ranked 9th best in the world by London based "Restaurant" magazine.
