- Jessica and Nelson, from Toronto ON 14 August 2018

My wife and I and our two small children (ages 3 and 4) spent the night at Stoneridge Chalet after a day at the Halliburton Forest Wolf Centre.

This was my second visit (already did a weekend ATV trip with the boys) to the Chalet, but the first for my wife and kids.

We had a great time as expected. Rod and Lynda and great people - they feel like family as soon as you meet them.

The bedroom is wonderful - close the blinds and shut the door and you could sleep away the morning as late as you want.

Lynda made us a wonderful dinner - go hungry - you won’t be disappointed! We highly recommend the hot breakfast for $15 a person - best bacon I’ve ever had! Lynda also made little pancakes for the kids when she found out the night before that they loved them!

We also met Rod and lyndas son and daughter in law - also ATV fans!

I would like to come up again for another visit! Hopefully a bit longer next time.

Thanks again Rod and Linda for a brief but wonderful stay! See you next time!

Amanda, Ryan, Rebecca, and Landen.

- Ryan and Amanda, from York Region 17 July 2018

Myself and 3 of my friends stayed at the Stone Ridge Chalet for 1 night for an ATV trip the following day.

We had a great time, and were very impressed with the accommodations. This is not your typical B&B - you have a huge private space including a living room, dining room, bathroom, and large bedroom. The space was beautifully decorated to give that rustic “up north” cottage in the country feel.

We were worried we wouldn’t be able to find a place to park several large vehicles with trailers in an area where we weren’t worried about the security of our ATV’s. Not a problem here - the driveway is big enough to park half a dozen or more trucks/trailers, and is secluded unlike your typical motel/hotel.

We were worried about where we would park at our ATV event, however Rod went ahead and spoke with a local business and pre-arranged a parking plan for us without our even asking!

I highly recommend the hot breakfast - it was ready upon arrival upstairs, and was a delicious home cooked meal. It really gave us an edge on our morning to not have to find somewhere to eat ahead of time.

Rod and Lynda were very kind and approachable - my only regret was that we didn’t spend more time with them!

We searched online for hours looking for just the right place to stay - let me save you the time and just book here right away!

Thanks Rod and Lynda for a great stay - we would love to come back again!

Ryan, Brian, Carl, and Robert

July 5...for 11 nights....from guestbook

We arrived on July 5/2017 and had the great pleasure to stay 11 nights here. What a peaceful and quiet place...just perfect! We used the time to relax...late breakfasts and wonderful adventures at Algonquin Park. We did two canoe trips, a lot of hikes and also refreshing swimming in these amazing lakes up here. Lots of wildlife spotted: moose,turkeys, squirrels, loons, chipmunks, frogs, canadian goose, wolves at the wolf centre! We also had the chance to taste Lynda's delicious breakfasts and dinner. For dining outside...the pizza on earth just down the highway is highly recommended. Robinson's General Store is so neat. And not to forget the cruise on SS Bigwin...all the new members...specially the captain...are very charming. Thank you very much, Rod & Lynda for having us and for making our holiday an unforgettable one!

- Andre, Susan, Shane & Beth, from Puslinch, Ontario 11 January 2016

We absolutely LOVED this B&B. A private suite that has a very clean and cozy cottage feel, but boasts modern amenities. It's located away from the town, so you get the real feeling of being out in the woods. There are plenty of trails around, and a very nice sandy beach in walking distance. Lynda was a fantastic host, who was very accommodating to everything we asked. We've already re-booked.

September 27/2014 Came up here for a wedding in Huntsville – Meaghen Belanger…Stayed 2 nights…Rod & Lynda have outdone themselves with this VERY lovely chalet. I’ve travelled a bit to be able to say “this place is WORLD CLASS!”

- Trish and Don, from Cottam Ontario 21 July 2015

August 9-13/2014 As we drove from Essex County all the way here, I couldn’t help but think…my it’s an awful long way to go for a little bit of fun. But very quickly I realized why you should. Scenery on hikes and from back deck are best as its gets. The weather was perfect and company made it full of good memories. Thanks for letting us enjoy your little piece of paradise with you, can’t wait to do the trek again, I would love to see it in the winter. P.S. The swimming holes were a blast and exploring abandoned buildings are a must…Till next time! P.S. I give our stay 5 stars!!!

- Cyndy and friends, from Leamington Ontario 21 July 2015

April 24-30/2014 It was our first time up here in the Haliburton area and we really enjoyed it. The landscape is so pretty, a lot different from what we saw in Southern Ontario on previous trips. Maybe we didn’t choose the very best time to come up here – a lot of things were still closed for the winter, hiking trails were partly flooded or covered under remaining snow and ice, but we enjoyed it none the less. That gas fireplace does a very good job warming you up after a cold day out, and also is a nice treat on rainy afternoons. We found the “Stone Ridge Chalet” on the internet and really liked it. It has got everything you need, is beautifully decorated and offers a great and quiet place to retreat to and relax. Our hostess Lynda was very nice and her knowledge of the area was a big help for us. Thanks for a great holiday! P.S. Since we haven’t managed to see a moose, I guess we will have to come back. And we can strongly recommend the “Pepper Mill” Steak and Pasta just down Hwy 35 – say hi to Shirley for us!

- Carina & Bjorn, from Grevenbroich, Germany 21 July 2015

Feb 13-17/2014 What a great vacation…The cottage is so beautiful, was a nice weekend, I don’t want to go home. Thank you so much Rod & Lyn for having us. I hope to come back one day.

- Max & Muddy, from Harrow Ontario 21 July 2015

2013 Arrived at Stone Ridge Chalet at 9pm Thursday night, , we as in Steve, Mary George and Mary and surprised Lyn that we got here so early, she was expecting us around midnight, but we decided to leave earlier, weather up was snow from Chatham on to Dorset. The girls were happy happy to get here. Rod was not here due to hunting with grandson Cole. We will miss him this weekend. On Friday we went to Haliburton and then to the wolf center, but it was closed. Saturday we went to Dorset to the Snowball Carnival and the latter afternoon we went to Steve’s cousin Linda and Mike in Huntsville so George can collect his chocolate cake Linda made for him. Then all of us including Linda, Mike, Bev and Jim went to Bracebridge to go for Chinese food. Sunday was just a leisure day, just sat around and relaxed. Steve went snow shoeing for an hour while George watched a movie, and the girls put their carpenter aprons on and assembled a bistro table and chair set that Lyn had bought, they did good. Later that afternoon and night after playing some cards, and a few drinks George decided for him and I to take a northern bath and off comes the clothes down to the shorts and out into the snow, cold at first but then it was great, should see the pictures, better still you was to be here. Monday morning we are waiting for Mike and Linda to come for breakfast. Steve’s cooking and after we will be taking Linda back Home to southern Ontario so she can spend a few days with Steve’s sister Steph. We are hoping to be leaving Stone Ridge before noon it was a great 4 days up here, but now we have to go back to reality, next time Rod will be up here with us maybe we can talk him into a real northern bath also. In the mean time we thank Rod and Lyn for all the good times, and great friendship. Love the Gang…”A Howling good time at the Stone Ridge Chalet.

June 29 to July 7 /2013 Could not have found a better place to stay, many things to see and do. Lynda was a great hostess, she made you feel right at home. Her knowledge of the area was invaluable. You are only 5 minutes or less to the water and approx. 30 min from the main towns (Bracebridge, Huntsville etc.) It is 30-40 min to Algonquin Park. It is well worth the trip, you can spend a week seeing the sites before you even drop a fishing line into the water. If you want to stay at a top notch place where you feel right at home, the Stone Ridge Chalet is the only place to stay.
