Thanks to Sally & Jan (and Ace) for bringing me back to a place I love and would be too sad to leave behind. It’s restful to hear the rushing water again, and to think about all the beautiful times I’ve had here in your company.

Oh my stars! What an amazing, inspiring & peaceful piece of glory!
Sunny Rock – the views
– the noise of the water rushing
– the frogs
– birds
– the wind through the pines
– the pines
– the mist after the rain
– the storm
– the smell after the rain
– the vistas around the lake

Sunny Rock – the setting
– the furnishings, the fireplaces
– the “whatnots”
– the windows
– the smell of delicious food
– the gentle spirit of “Ace” – the dog
– the decks, the railings
– the Pine Studio
– the bed – amazing sleep!

Sunny Rock – the warmth & charm of Sally
– the wonderful stories
– her granola (darn that secret recipe!)
– her laugh
– her generosity of soul, food & friendship

Thank you for sharing your dream with us. It was a lovely, restful peaceful weekend. We did & saw so much.

I’ve had a good rest at the end of an intensive week! Loved the view and the luxurious accoutrements, admired the construction and design of this beautiful house – space, comfort & friendly hospitality. Thanks for everything – maybe till next year?

wish I was staying longer than our brief one night stay

Filed under: Blairbend Riverside Room Guest Messages,Guest Testimonials — Sally at 11:07 am on Saturday, January 1, 2005

From the very start, smiles and warmness were what we received, from our two lovely hostesses and from the area of Sunny Rock’s location. I wish I was staying longer than our brief one night stay. In fact, it is the sort of place I would love to live in, if and when I grow up.
Tomorrow, we are going to the Winterdance dog sledding which promises to be great fun. After that, we are going to visit the wolf center. At the risk of tempting fate, we have had a perfect stay and I can’t see it changing tomorrow. If we ever find ourselves in this part of the globe again, I couldn’t think of a better place to come and spend some quality, relaxed and comfortable time.

I enjoyed my stay at Sunny Rock while attending a photography course at the Haliburton School of Art. Thank you Sally & Jan for your kind hospitality. I wish the Heron had cooperated – but it gives me a reason to return!
