Appreciation from our visitors to our B& B...

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in your B&B and at the Lakefield Literary Festival. The view out the window is spectacular and I love the flower box just in front. The warm hospitality, friendly atmosphere, special extras and lively conversation made a wonderful weekend. Lovely breakfasts too! Thanks so much and we hope we are able to return. - Ken and Lil, Ontario

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality, kindness and especially your patience with our 3 children. You treated them as though they were your own grandchildren and made the experience extra special for them. Everything, the room, the food, the atmosphere was perfect! We hope to come back. - Love the Lamberts

Thank you for a lovely home away from home. Your accommodation is very comfortable and very tastefully done. All the extra touches were very much appreciated - especially the extra effort for driving me into town. You'll be very highly recommended as a delightful place to stay for our future events in the Kawarthas. - Pauline Surrey, BC

Wish we had the oppportunity to stay longer. You'll definitely be on the "return" list. Everything was wonderful especially since you took us in last minute. - Meg and Pauline

What a find! We were almost stuck without a room for the night, then we landed here. Such a nice spot and will always remember hanging in the garage with Joe. I think you oughta try broadcasting a talk show from there - the next thing in reality TV. Deb, Joe all our best.- Jon & Christian, USA
