Susanne graduated from George Brown College in 1996 with a fashion design diploma and moved into Stevenson Farms with Stephen Milne in 1997. Together, they took three years to renovate the property before turning it into a 2 room B&B in September 2000. Since then they have grown the business to offer 6 overnight guest rooms, a private apartment, banquet facility, and most recently a full service spa. Susanne studied and trained at the Canadian Beauty College in Barrie, ON in 2014 and is certified to preform all the spa services offered at Harvest Spa. Susanne is very detail orientated and makes customer satisfaction her highest priority. Whether it is decorating for a changing season, serving breakfast, putting final touches in your room, or pampering you in the spa, Susanne pours her love into every aspect of the business to ensure you feel relaxed, welcome and want to return.

Alanna is very professional and absolutely amazing at everything she does.Try to find time to book a massage with Alanna on your next visit. You won’t be disappointed!
We are very fortunate to have a great team of staff at Stevenson Farms and Harvest Spa. They all play an integral part in making sure your stay is a pleasant one. It is not as common in B&B’s as it is in larger hotels for guests to show their appreciation to the staff by tipping, but managing a historical home of this size takes a lot of hard work. If you enjoyed the cleanliness of your room, or a service you received you can always show your thanks with a small token. They are always welcomed and appreciated greatly by our staff.
