Lots to see and do in the area and yet peaceful and quiet. You've been wonderful hosts. Of the various places we've stayed over the years this is the only one we would consider returning to. Thanks again. Pat S. and Judy G.

We have had a lovely week here at the Crow's Nest! A lovely cottage with a friendly and helpful owner. Beautiful surroundings and so quiet. Thank you Jan! Selene, Dennis, Jeremy(5), Miriam(2)

Hi Jan, Yes I did receive the security check; but have not gotten around to cashing it yet; but will likely do so tonight. I have been meaning to email you and let you know we had a great stay and would come again if we decide to vacation in the valley again! Thanks again, we had a great time! Mark C.

(Returning this summer): Thanks jan. It's a nice cozy and comfortable cottage in a very friendly community on a lovely part of the river. Nice beach. i have mostly been very happy with it. the power outage is not something any of us could have predicted or controlled. the bar-b-que was indeed very useful. Susan M.

Janet and Bob, The art work is delightful. We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage. A very good vacation. Charlie especially enjoyed the midnight swim after Bill's 81th Birthday Party. Thanks again, Donna & Charlie, Vel & Sid

Jan & Bob, Emma, Nicholas, & I had a great time. I can't believe the two weeks are over! We enjoyed the waterfalls in Quebec & the waterfront in Pembroke; but loved the beach most of all. Thanks so much for the great holiday. Barbara D. & Emma

We loved it here, nice & quiet. Cottage was great, A/C was great due to heatwave. Ron and Louice H.

Hi Jan, Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and get lots of R & R! I can't say it enough -- but I can say it enthusiastically! Just want to say thank you for our stay at your cottage.
