My sister and I traveled from Japan to enjoy the fall colors in Ontario. (fall colors in Canada is very fomouse in Japan.)
The journey from Japan was so long and we were very tired but when we arrived at stillwater on the lake, we felt like we are finally in the heven!!
Very gorjeous suite,lovely gardens, the amaizing view over the lake, the fantastic breakfast, and wonderful host Sunny and Peter, Everything was perfect!!
We rode a pedal boat in the morning and enjoyed to see gorgeouse sunrise from the lake!!
We wolud love to return even from Japan!

Just got back from Stillwater on the Lake this past weekend - I had planned a weekend getaway for my boyfriend's birthday and decided to take a chance on a B&B experience, thank god I did!! Stillwater on the Lake is a hidden treasure!! This was probably the best weekend getaway I've had in a really long time. We were greeted by Peter who showed us around when we first arrived and got us settled in and treated us to a delicious cheese platter. A few minutes later, Sunny comes home and gives us both big warm hugs and starts instructing us on where we can go to eat, to shop, to look around, etc. It honestly felt like we were staying with family. It was such a relaxed atmosphere, beautiful scenery, and both Peter and Sunny were so accommodating by making sure we had everything we needed. The suite was beautiful, well decorated and modern, and so comfortable. The suit is also well stocked, they anticipate everything that you may need from toothpaste to allergy medicine. The shower is large enough for two, the king size bed provided one of the best sleeps I've ever had, and THE HOT TUB! Breakfast was delicious, french toast the first day and eggs benedict the second. Sunny and Peter were so thoughtful, they had a birthday cake waiting for us by a lit fireplace after we had returned from dinner on Saturday night. They thought of everything to make sure that we had the best experience possible. I cant thank them enough for blowing our minds this weekend and welcoming us to their slice of paradise. Can't wait to come back!!

I decided to surprise my fiance for her birthday with a romantic B&B weekend. We love B&Bs and I wanted this weekend to be extra-special. I reviewed all of the “Ontario” B&Bs on BB Canada and liked the look and feel of Stillwater on the Lake the best. WOW............What an experience! Sunny responded to my email right away and prior to our arrival she sent us a listing of what was happening in the Kawarthas that weekend. By the time we arrived, I felt like I knew her! We were greeted upon arrival by two of the friendliest hosts we have ever met. My fiance was so excited! Sunny and Peter walked us through the property and got us settled in the Deckside side which is located up at the main house. Website photos can sometimes be deceiving but not in this case! The photos did not do the property justice! It was spectacular! The gardens were breathtaking! Our suite was massive and anchored by a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The décor was right out of a magazine and the entire property had such a sophisticated, elegant feel. We had a stocked mini bar and a Tassimo coffeemaker. The suite amenities were spa-quality and every room in the suite overlooked the lake. It was bigger than some apartments I’ve lived in! We spent our evenings in the screened-in enclosure where the hot tub was located. It was so quiet and romantic. We slept like babies and awakened to amazing lakeviews and spectacular sunrises. The breakfast was incredible and delicious and was served overlooking the lake. When I spoke to Sunny prior to arriving she asked if I would like her to arrange a “couples” massage for us. After breakfast we were treated to the most sensual experience we have ever had. The massage therapists were set up in a cedar gazebo overlooking the lake. We’ll never forget it – we were lulled into relaxation with the sounds of Enya permeating the entire property and the trickle of the waterfalls in the background.......I can only describe it as amazing................... Well, needless to say, we decided to have our wedding ceremony at Stillwater on the Lake next July. This truly was the most incredible B&B experience we have ever had. This is not a B&B room in someone’s house..........this is an experience! We can’t wait for our wedding day!!!! Thank you so much Sunny and Peter.........Wow...wow...wow.............thanks for sharing your secret paradise with us.

My boyfriend and I have stayed in numerous B&Bs in Canada and the U.S. to celebrate various occasions but Stillwater was by far the best one we've ever visited. Sunny and Peter not only catered to our schedules but also anticipated our needs. Sunny had prepared a gourmet cheese plate (complimentary) on the off chance that we arrived hungry. The room was modern, luxurious, romantic and impeccably clean. We stayed in the cottage on the lake and got to enjoy stepping out from our room at sunrise in the morning and when the stars were out at night. The atmosphere was peaceful and the bed was so comfortable that we fell asleep almost instantly. Our favourite amenities of the room were the fireplace and heated bathroom floors. The breakfast in the morning included homemade banana muffins, fruit, other pastries and salmon eggs benedict. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. I highly recommend it for a formal event. Sunny mentioned there will be high tea in the summer and we're already planning our return trip for that.

We recently stayed for 1 night over Thanksgiving weekend (booked 2 nights but had to cut our trip short due to family emergency). We did not expect a Bed& Breakfast to be so luxurious and the service so superb. If you would like to get away from it all - this is the place. The rooms and the whole property are top notch and to really appreciate the beauty of the property you have to stay here when flowers are blooming. It was also a treat to meet Sunny and Peter, what lovely people! We wish we could have stayed longer and hopefully will be back some day. Stillwater on the Lake is a real gem.

We stayed here the night of our wedding. We were greeted by Peter who waited up for us (2:00am!). He kindly showed us to our lakeside room. The hospitality of Sunny and Peter is unparalleled and the property is absolutely beautiful!! We only stayed a short time but can't wait to go back! Our room and view were amazing and comfortable! Sunny prepared us a breakfast that was out of this world! What an amazing way to spend our wedding night together!!!
Thank you Sunny and Peter.

My husband and I just celebrated our 27th anniversary with the best gift we could give ourselves - a 3-night stay at Stillwater on the Lake. We found it featured on the Ontario Tourism website. Amidst the brilliant fall colours of the Kawarthas we found a piece of paradise minutes away from Peterborough. Sunny and Peter greeted us with a genuine inviting warmth that never wavered our entire stay. We were welcomed to our suite to find a fire burning in the gorgeous fireplace, a delectable cheese tray, refreshing mojitos and sweet jazz playing. Well-appointed and luxurious our suite had a living room, bedroom, private bathroom and stunning views of the lake from every room. Nothing like waking up to the full view of the sun rising over the lake! With a screened in deck the length of our suite which also featured a hot tub we never felt confined. We were urged to explore the grounds which featured multi-tiered decks and a spectacular garden that led you down to the lake. There was a new discovery around every corner and we delighted in afternoon naps in the gazebo. The perfect place to reconnect, rejuvenate and truly relax.
