“Beautiful Wedding Venue!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

My new husband and I had our wedding at Stillwater on the Lake on June 7th 2014! I can't really describe how beautiful everything was, all I can say is I felt like I was in a fairy tale! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, the flowers breathtaking! Everything was beautifully decorated by Sunny including the Gazebo by the lake where we had our ceremony. The Flower arrangements were amazing, the chairs for the ceremony so beautifully decorated!

We had a small ceremony with 21 guests, we had a high tea reception which was also amazing! The decorations were sooo beautiful! Our cake which came as part of our wedding package was breathtaking! Most of our guests couldn’t believe it was a real cake! I can’t imagine a more beautiful place to get married at, I’ve certainly not seen anything like it before and I feel so fortunate that we came across this little treasure.

Sunny was amazing throughout the entire process working with us via email to make sure everything was perfect for our big day. We must have changed hundreds of emails back and forth and she is always very quick to respond and very accommodating.

Our cabin by the lake was also absolutely beautiful, it was right on the lake, we had our own private deck, the bed was so soft and comfortable, everything was extremely clean and also beautiful to look at.

I am posting some pictures because words can’t really do justice in this case. I could not have asked or found a more amazing place for our wedding!

Sunny and Peter have done such a fantastic job creating a very intimate, beautiful experience. The view is simply amazing and I wish I had a chance to use the boat. It was exactly the relaxation I was looking for.

We spent a night at this beautiful spot right on the lake. With world class amenities, food, views and service, we were taken care of better than our parents could have in a spectacular environment. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to check out the region.

Stumbled across this gem purely by accident and will definitely go back! Fantastic hosts who do everything they can to make your stay a relaxing and enjoyable one. Excellent food. Great setting. Great conversation. Cool cats that look like lions!! Who could ask for more! Went there last October and while we didn't get to enjoy the amazing grounds as much as we would have liked due to the weather, the peace and tranquillity of the lakeside suite offered a perfect, secluded getaway. Amenities in the very spacious suite were great and Sunny and Peter were eager to hear how they could make it even better! Would highly recommend it and will definitely return! Thanks Sunny and Peter for a great experience!

We had the great fortune to spend a night this week at Stillwater on the Lake. The hospitality extended by Sunny and Peter was outstanding, as was the ambience of the accommodation.....fireplace, music, lighting, decorations, hot tub, newly outfitted ceramic shower, bedding, welcoming snack tray. The following morning breakfast of fresh fruit, Eggs Benedict with salmon, bacon, sausage, OJ, etc. was exquisite.

We have stayed at a few very nice B&Bs over the years, but Stillwater on the Lake outdistances them all. A great setting right on the water. We are already planning on returning this summer for a night or two to enjoy the summertime garden display.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room within the main house which was wonderfully private and will now try the lakes...

This boutique bed and breakfast is so much more than we could have imagined. This beautifully landscaped retreat is private, but with all the luxuries of a 4-star hotel and two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Thanks Sunny and Peter! Everything was so beautiful, and we felt pampered from the moment we arrived with a lovely cheese tray, warm fire, and mojitos.

Unlike the B&Bs of old, THESE rooms are impeccably decorated and yet still yield to the natural beauty of the outdoors. The beds and linens are sumptuous and sitting in the hot tub staring out at the stars reflected on the lake was magical. As was relaxing in the lush robes in front of the fireplace sipping wine.

Breakfast was not just standard fare but was equivalent to a high end brunch...Salmon eggs benedict, fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, fresh pastries, and delicious coffee.

We HIGHLY recommend Stillwater on the Lake. It is the perfect getaway.

Thank you so much for the beautiful review Sue. I really hope that you and Najwa can come back in the summertime when the flowers are in bloom - or at least come and visit us for our high tea!
