About Us

We are passionate about offering guests the best possible experience in surroundings that are warm, inviting, and make our guests feel right at home.

Firm Foundations was established in 2001 when Jane’s chiropody (footcare) clinic opened in Heidelberg, Ontario, on the ground floor of a converted 19th century blacksmith's shop. We launched the Vacations branch of the business a few years later when we began renting out the Blacksmith’s Loft, a large studio suite in the second story of the old blacksmith’s building. 

Having taken our family of six on many road trips over the years, we set out to create vacation rentals that were able to accommodate both larger and smaller groups, as well as giving guests the opportunity to prepare their own meals if they wished.

From these simple beginnings, the group of Firm Foundations Properties has grown to 5 locations which we either own or manage. All are in the Grey County area.

All our properties are now listed on airbnb, and bookable there.  The only one that currently may be booked via this website is Stonehaven.

We look forward to hosting you!
