Fall has arrived at MaplePine Farm, expect the nights to be cool and days to be mostly sunny.  Coming into November the nights can actually reach 0 degrees Celsius.  December and January would be the coldest with freezing nights and pleasant days.  Outside it is cool - so warm woolens or jacket and hat are recommended. The dinning room is usually warm and comfortable to sit in, Cabins are warm in the evening, the mornings may find them a little cool.  All our rooms have been insulated so the warmth stays inside.  If you want to experience the beauty of frost, get up at 5 am and see all the grass white with a light layer of frost; quickly melting when the sun rises.  One of my favourite times of year is the fall..  When the rice fields turn a golden yellow.. :)
