About Sam Campbell

*UPDATE* I recently "retired" from my career of 30 years to focus my attention to Cobblestone Farm Retreat and hosting guests. I am thrilled to be around the farm more to aid with our guest's experience. I've been hosting family & friends at my farm for many years and they all said I should look into opening it as a B&B. I've used VRBO in the past so I actually thought this might be a better route to go.

Sam Campbell purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Sam Campbell chose Cobourg

Cobourg is only an hour outside of Toronto but you feel like you're a world away. The small town atmosphere is so welcoming and there are so many sights to see. From antique shopping, to relaxing on the beach, to hiking in the forest there is something for everyone!

What makes this farmhouse unique

You will have a chance to completely unwind and get back to nature on this incredible country property. You might even get to see some local farmers working the land as they used to many years ago. You'll see young girls riding horseback and cyclists whipping by enjoying the fresh country air. The stars at night are something to be seen and how better to see them then by sitting by a bonfire roasting marshmallows or sipping some wine.

So peaceful...

  • 5 of 5 don't realize how much you miss the sounds of nature and the fresh air, until you visit the country.

Cobblestone is a little oasis just 1.5 hours outside Toronto. We had a relaxing weekend, enjoying great conversation, food and spectacular views.

Thanks Sam. You are a great host!

Tracy and friends.

Just what the pictures described. Quiet, pastoral, great access to biking and lovely town of Cobourg

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Sam, we really enjoyed our stay. Lots of room for everybody to spread out, both inside and out. Nice walking trail through the south pasture by the way. Highly recommend.

Lovely spot for a girls weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful girls weekend at Cobblestone Farm. The farm house was very comfortable with separate beds for 6 of us (and there were more beds), beautiful common rooms, and two outdoor patios to enjoy the great weekend weather and the surrounding views of the countryside. The farm is close to both Cobourg and Port Hope so we enjoyed a bit of shopping as well. We had a very relaxing stay. I would definitely recommend it.

A glorious place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family (seven adults, one infant) were fortunate to find Cobblestone Farm for a weekend away celebrating my father's birthday. Sam was a marvellous host, offering lots of information before our arrival – and recommendations for area amenities and attractions and a warm fire to greet us. We will certainly be looking to arrange future getaways here!

Perfect getaway house

  • 5 of 5

This was my third rental with Sam, and the farmhouse has never disappointed. I hosted a group of 5 ladies while we escape the hustle and bustle of the city and spend the weekend focussing on creative projects and good food. The beds and rooms were comfortable with several fluffy down duvets. There are so many spots to sit and relax throughout the house. The newly renovated mudroom/bathroom is a great continuation of Sam's great eye with modern/rustic farmhouse decor. We loved spending as much time outside in the warm afternoon sun. Sam is amazing to deal with: friendly, professional, accommodating. I plan to continue hosting weekends for as long as Sam is willing to have us!

Cobblestone Farm had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults and 2 girls, ages 5 and 3) flew in from Vancouver and stayed at Cobblestone Farm for 10 days in August. We picked the location because it was central in Ontario relative to a range of friends and family. It proved to be everything we had hoped for and then some.

First, the house, farm and surrounding area are beautiful. We had tons of space for the girls to play, along with the children of friends who came to visit. Second, the house gave us a lot of flexibility when it came to hosting. We had friends and family over to visit and for meals. Everyone was comfortable and enjoyed themselves. Third, the proximity to Cobourg was really handy ... we were able to grab groceries quickly and easily, or take the girls into town to the waterfront to play. Nothing was far. And finally, Sam the owner was great to deal with. All emails or phone calls in the run up to our trip were answered promptly. Any information we needed in order to feel "at home" was made available to us. We were even given emergency numbers to call if we couldn't reach her. In our experience, not all VRBO owners are as accommodating or generous with their time.

We would highly recommend Cobblestone Farm, and we are grateful to Sam for her generosity in making it available to us. The girls are already asking when we can go back to "our farm."

Owner's Response: Suzanne, thank you so much for your amazing review and your incredibly kind words. I am thrilled that you and your family consider the farm to be "yours". Many of our guests have lovingly called it that and I am so happy that people feel so at home here. Being able to share the farm life with like minded people has brought me such joy. I hope we can host you again in the future...maybe we'll have to do a house swap and I'll come to Vancouver :) Take care, Sam
