This is a lovely and quiet B&B on a quiet river. The separate (and somewhat expensive) guest cottage is well worth the money. Canoeing and hiking are available. There are several very good restaurants within 10-15 km. We recommend it highly.

I have stayed at Sunny Rock many times now and through all the seasons. Staying at Sunny Rock is like having a cottage without any of the worries of cottage ownership. The quiet rural location has a is breath taking view of the falls and rivers surrounded by green forest. Still you are only a short drive to many activities... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

After reading two prior reviews from, “the young professionals” giving Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast only two stars, I feel compelled to write my own. It was my husbands 40th and he didn’t want a big party he wanted a nice relaxing holiday with fishing, canoeing and children free! Our gracious hosts Sally and Jan gave us that, R &... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here on July 14-15 with our friends (whom also wrote a review under the name Luv2travel0548). As mentioned below the accommodations were adequate and the natural aspects of the surrounding lakes were beautiful. However, I am absolutely appalled by the ridiculous statements made by margden1 below regarding our "behaviour". I don't quite understand why a... More

Thank you for the valued description of our property and bed and breakfast. We are fortunate to be the only B&B in the Haliburton Highlands on 3 different types of water. Canning Lake is across the road with access from the area of the Scott's Dam...the waters of Canning Lake flow over the Scott's Dam and make a wonderful waterfall...and... More
