Picture sitting on the back porch overlooking the lake, listening to the loons, and sipping wine. No pool but a nice-size lake, great for a morning dip. No fitness center, but great walking or jogging on the wide road and paths....or perhaps canoeing. After attending 4-day conference at Laurentian University, I was more relaxed than I had ever been. The...

It was a wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. We are used to staying places where the breakfast is a simple continental one. However, Jose is an excellent cook who provided a delicious breakfast. The location is close to hiking opportunities and downtown Sudbury.

We chose the location based on the location to the hospital while visiting a relative having treatment. What a pleasant surprise to be sooo close to town but in a cottage setting. Jose was very welcoming, the room was clean with everything we needed, and we took the time to go for a nice cool swim during the heatwave. Picked...

Our son booked this retreat for us as a Christmas gift. We decided to use it in March so we could get some skiing in. After a day of cross-country skiing at the...

I have stayed here on two separate occasions now. Words can't describe how wonderful Jose and Brenda are. They are the most welcoming people, with the best B&B anywhere.
