“Super Relaxation Spot for Business or Pleasure”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Picture sitting on the back porch overlooking the lake, listening to the loons, and sipping wine. No pool but a nice-size lake, great for a morning dip. No fitness center, but great walking or jogging on the wide road and paths....or perhaps canoeing. After attending 4-day conference at Laurentian University, I was more relaxed than I had ever been. The university, in fact, is within walking distance (less than a mile) of both the campus and medical school. Our host, Jose, was the perfect: tasty breakfasts, wonderful company, & stimulating chats. My room was the larger of the two with an enclosed sitting room (outside), a jacuzzi, four poster bed, and ample room. Everything was clean, well kept, and.....just perfect. I really look forward to a return trip.

It was a wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. We are used to staying places where the breakfast is a simple continental one. However, Jose is an excellent cook who provided a delicious breakfast. The location is close to hiking opportunities and downtown Sudbury.

Had a fantastic long weekend stay here. The room was beautiful and relaxing with plenty of reading, magazines, dvd's etc. to keep you entertained on a rainy day. The other guests that passed through were lovely - very interesting to talk to but respectful of each others' need to relax in private.There was plenty of wildlife and natural beauty out on the deck, plus great walking/biking/skiing trails along the lakes just at the end of the road. Last, but not least, Jose was a great host- he cooked up beautiful breakfasts and was an endless source of information about Sudbury, Canada, the Caribbean and much of the world beyond. He has a very soothing presence which cannot help but put you in a relaxed mood. I would not hesitate to book here again when I return to Sudbury!

We chose the location based on the location to the hospital while visiting a relative having treatment. What a pleasant surprise to be sooo close to town but in a cottage setting.
Jose was very welcoming, the room was clean with everything we needed, and we took the time to go for a nice cool swim during the heatwave. Picked blueberries at the dock before heading up for a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the lake. The baby bear by the side of the road was a special bonus on the way back to the hospital. Our one request was that it be quiet for sleeping - perfect.
Thanks Jose for the interesting conversations and healthy breakfasts that got us up and on our way each day. Got to try lots of new foods (he always asked first if we wanted to try something new).

Brenda bubbled with delight as she welcomed us for a two night stay at their Luna De Miel Suite, with its magnificent king size four poster bed. Our son booked this retreat for us as a Christmas gift. We decided to use it in March so we could get some skiing in. After a day of cross-country skiing at the nearby Conservation area, soaking in the Jacuzzi with a bottle of ice-wine relaxed our muscles and tickled our fancy. Brenda is a good listener and enjoyed the magic tricks I gifted her. The food was delicious and the hospitality excellent. I half expected a working wood fireplace instead of an electric one, but it gave the correct atmosphere anyway. We highly recommend this place for all the right reasons.

Loved our B&B Staycation!! Our celebration was perfected by the kindness, warmth and luxury of this cozy comfy B&B. The privacy, personal sun porch over looking the lake, the King size gorgeous 4 poster antique bed, spacious room, fireplace ambiance, spa tub, rain shower, books/magazines/movies, satelite tv, internet, fridge, coffee machine, etc., etc., etc., was amazing. Then the morning breakfast was gourmet delight!!! Brenda & Jose have that special touch that leaves you feeling spoiled and completely happy. I wasn't aware that our city held such a sweet treasure <3 Thanks!!

Staying with Brenda and Jose is like coming home. They think of every little thing to pamper you and make your stay comfortable and restful. From their warm-hearted welcome, to the lovely room with a fireplace and super comfortable bed, to the luxury of a soaker tub . . . and all the little details, like the fresh flowers, the candles, the cup of tea when you arrive. And, of course, the yummy breakfast made just the way you like it. It's those little things that make all the difference.

I was travelling on business and would highly recommend Southbay to anyone doing the same. Who wants to stay in a hotel when you could stay with Brenda and Jose? They are terrific hosts and I agree with the previous writer: words can't describe how wonderful they are! A treasure!
