WE WILL BE BACK…Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast is in Our Future

I can’t thank you enough for ‘spoiling’ Ron and I. at the Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast. Your hospitality, personal touches and warm welcome to the Haliburton Highlands, not to mention your amazing cooking and beautiful home, touched me very deeply. WE WILL BE COMING BACK. I’ve already forwarded the photos we took to many of my friends and staff here at the library.

Dear Sally & Jan…Our 40th Anniversary get-away was a wonderful and memorable experience. Your hospitality is amazing! Your cooking was delicious. We loved meeting your friends and sharing meals together. Ace is a great dog. The rooms are lovely and unique in a setting fit for royalty. That is how you made us feel this weekend – like royal guests.
It was so nice to sit on the decks and watch the Blue Heron, ducks and seagull playing in the rapids. The lake with the coloured trees was breath-taking at this time of year. We really enjoyed guessing what all the “What’s its” were.
We will definitely promote this sunny rock bed & breakfast to everyone we meet, and hopefully we will return again soon. Keep up the good work.

With much appreciation
Henry & Susan

Thanks for the hospitality, history, stories and “what’s its” at breakfast….and cushy canoe trip

After 25, 22 and 21 years of interior canoe camping, we were ready for a “cushy” canoe trip, no long portages, no sleeping on the ground, but still beautiful scenery, lakes to paddle and time together.
Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast provided us with the best of the two worlds. Thanks for the hospitality, history, stories and “what’s its” at breakfast. Oh, and of course the water massage.

Sally & Jan…Lynne and I were just passing through the Haliburton Highlands and needed a place to stay for the night. We were lucky enough to have stumbled across your Sunny Rock B&B. Wow, were we impressed. What a beautiful complex. The views and hospitality cannot be beat. Thank you so much for making our experience truly wonderful!

miss being serenaded by the river

We will definitely miss being serenaded by the river, amazed by Harriet the Blue Heron, refreshed by a swim in the gorgeous lake and treated to a delicious breakfast each day. Thank you for creating this retreat & allowing us to return to the city rejuvenated.

magical weekend…continue to make a difference in people’s lives

A magical weekend! Like every child needs a good camp councellor, every burnt out adult needs a retired camp director. Albert and I really appreciate the wisdom and company of both of you (Sally & Jan). I hope you both keep the spirit up and continue to make a difference in people’s lives.

Love & gratitude

amazing – like being in a dream

Our stay at the River View room. It was amazing – like being in a dream – the big windows and last night’s full moon made our night one of the most romantic of our lives. Thanks Jan and Sally. We will be back soon!

Love to Pick up the Pine Studio and Transport it Home

Filed under: Pine Studio Guest Messages — Sally at 8:59 pm on Saturday, March 12, 2011

Sally & Jan what an amazing place you have created here, at Sunny Rock B&B, building upon the first owners. It’s a wonderful retreat and tranquil setting perfect. I’d love to pick up the Pine Studio and transport it home with me.
I’m so glad that we found you in the Haliburton Highlands when our dog-sledding and sleigh ride fell through due to warm weather. The fishing lodge we had booked wasn’t quite right for relaxing when outdoor activities became muddy.
Musti, my dog has been welcomed many places – this is one of the best.
Thank you for the great breakfast and an opportunity to gather and talk.
Ace sure is a cutie! All the best
