My husband and I married at Dundas in September 2015 and we stayed in the Boathouse for a night to celebrate our first anniversary. We had a lovely, relaxing stay. The views of the lake from the boathouse decking are beautiful. The interior is very in-keeping with Dundas style. A great night away in the peace and quiet!

Management response:

Happy Anniversary to you both. We look forward to seeing you next year too?

What an amazing and brilliant romantic retreat. Everything was perfect in this tiny venue and the hamper in the morning was the icing on the cake. The weather was unseasonably warm and we sat in our robes on the balcony eating breakfast and watching the swan glide by. We loved it.

Management response:

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon!
