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.

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!

Dear Sally…What a treasure we found ourselves on the internet yesterday when we found the Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast! Thank you so much for your hospitality, your great food (we’re about to have breakfast) and great company! Twas too short a stay this time around and we’ve yet to meet Jan…more to look forward to! Take care! You might have gotten us hooked on muggle awareness behavior!

To Sally and Jan…I have never had a better place “to crash” than Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast after a day of Ice Racing. I will be looking forward to my next stay here – the food and company was wonderful!
This beautiful & rustic inn has got to be one of Ontario’s “Best Kept Secrets”… what a fabulous find (thanks to Victor) and great place to recuperate with my hand!
Sally & Jan…your warm ambience, cozy rooms & “magical & tasty” meals make it the “perfect getaway” anytime of year – you both made us feel so welcome & “Ace” of course, the “wonder dog”, ….we’ll be back!!

not leaving hungry after your delicious breakfasts and house dinners

Filed under: Guest Testimonials,WalterWindsong Riverview Suite Guest Messages — Sally at 9:45 pm on Wednesday, December 30, 2009

To Sally & Jan…just the R & R Drew and I needed to end off 2009! We enjoyed our adventures on our new snowshoes in Snowden Park. Trekking off the trail and exploring the marshlands was a thrill. The drive up to Winterdance was a beautiful winter wonderland in the Haliburton Highlands and an opportunity to encounter two moose crossing the road in front of us.
Conversations were always entertaining and informative. We enjoyed guessing the “whats-its”. Certainly not leaving hungry after your delicious breakfasts and house dinners. The warmth of the sun and the fireplace made our room a home away from home for three nights a pleasure.
Til we meet again!
