This place is exactly what we've expected from Canada. Sally en Jan, working as a perfect team together to make guests feel at home. Offering us a glass of wine or some delicious icecream in the evening so we could hear about all of the great places we should visit. The rooms are very clean, cozy and spaceous. And the... More

From the moment of arrival and Sally saying "welcome home" to our departure 3 days later, we had nothing but excellent service and an atmosphere of relaxation and home comfort. We stayed in the Walter Windsong room. The morning and evening views (all day actually) were spectacular. The bed was one of the most comfortable, we have ever slept in... More

A thunderstorm greeted me, belying the name "Sunny Rock," but the welcome by owners Sally and Jan more than made up for the unpleasant weather. This lovely B&B, upgraded from its roots as a 1928 lodge, is situated by a point in the Drag River that's studded with huge boulders, so that in summer you can keep your windows open... More

Dear Alumni...Thank you for your comments about the lack of inroorm Tv. While sitting in the inroom rocking chairs looking out the large sliding door could be like viewing the Nature Channel on Cable TV.

A beautiful location on a waterfall half hour from Haliburton in an old B& B complete with uneven floors. Your hostess Salley is larger than life and very friendly. She invites a couple of her friends over for meals and to watch the Baseball games in the living room, so don't think to watch a movie or on your ipad... More

I wish there were opportunities for "life do overs" because personally I believe for this guest the first 18 hours under our roof was wonderful.

From the moment we stepped through the door to a warm welcome we felt at home. "Come and join us for a bowl of soup and a glass of wine" was the greeting from Sally as we arrived unannounced. There were no extra charges for the hospitality of the house. Large common area with a lovely view. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely and quiet B&B on a quiet river. The separate (and somewhat expensive) guest cottage is well worth the money. Canoeing and hiking are available. There are several very good restaurants within 10-15 km. We recommend it highly.
