My boyfriend surprised me with a quick visit here on my 30th birthday, it was such a pleasant surprise. We had hiked in Halliburton for part of the day then as we were driving towards the B&B we stopped off one the side of the road for some pictures of the fall colours, little did we know the B&B was...

My wife and I booked last minute at end of September 2014 and we are so glad that we did. The B & B is quiet (except for the relaxing sound of the cascade below the little dam) and historic. Sally is an engaging host and quickly breaks down the barriers of unfamiliarity amongst guests. This led my wife and...

We enjoyed the great cottage like facilities. We were welcomed by Liz and Art and we immediately felt comfortable and welcomed. The rooms are very comfortable and have lots of interesting reading materials and antiques. Our breakfast was very good, tasty and healthy! We recommend this B&B and we would return when we have cause to be in the area!

You are made to feel like pampered family when you stay in their gorgeous B&B. The food is INCREDIBLE and catered to your tastes and needs. This was our third time staying here and we loved every moment of it. The views are spectacular. We watched deer crossing the frozen river. I highly recommend this B&B !!!

Sally has a passion for hospitality - and doing her best to cater to her guests' specific situations. While I was there for a week, attending the Haliburton School of Arts, others were there for different reasons: a woman on business, an American couple holidaying, a couple from an hour away looking for a relaxing weekend. Sally was able to...

Wow....what a wonderful review. I remember we'll standing in the darkness at the dam sharing the experience of the star filled sky. When you time in a city or a place with too much light pollution one can only guess what that sky would look like. As the darken comes in on us earlier these days the stars for some...
