Welcome to the Pic River Guest Suite! My friend Jim said it best when he sat down in the Pic River Guest Suite after admiring all of the accommodations and said “you know, this is one those places that is way better than it shows in the pictures. Some places you see pictures and then when you get there you are disappointed, but this place… is the kind of place that I would be pleasantly surprised about after really seeing it.”

I think he’s right. After all, how do you show Peace and Quiet in a photograph? How do you capture the breathtaking splendour of the full moon rising as its casts its silver light on the river before you…Or the dazzling view of the morning sun, and the mist as it meanders sleepily across the river. How can you possibly convey the feeling of seeing all of this from your own comfortable queen size bed or as you dine on breakfast with your fresh-brewed coffee?

You’re just gonna have to take my guests’ words for it… or better yet, come see for yourself!

As you can see by the dates of the posts, I haven't kept up with transferring the comments from my guest book to this website. So, bit by bit I will add all of the comments from over the years. Happy reading! -Bonnie

We had a great stay. The Guest suite is so peaceful -we sat outside, watched the river and listened to the birds for most of the evening. We will certainly pass the word about this wonderful place. Does the CBC and the Vinyl Cafe know of it? I will write them. -Thanks D., C.,K., C. D. Newmarket, On.

We came here more or less accidentally -since we even didn't know that place exists -and only wanted to stay one night. But as it is magic here at Pic River, we decided to spend a second night. And even though it just a lazy day, we have probably seen more animals than when visiting a National Park. -From squirrels up to a bear. Oh, and regarding hospitality, there is nothing to add to the other comments. All the best! -N&S Munich, Germany

we arrived into Pic River late in the day, 11month old baby squalling in the rear for the last 100km and found your little piece of heaven, and thanks to you, quickly made it our heaven. Here on the shores of a lake we all love so deeply, we were so happy to settle in. Vermont (our home state is also beautiful, but the shores of this astounding Lake are utterly breathtaking and magnificent. I dream of my return in the future. Pukaskwa Park (the very little that we hiked (3 trails) was gorgeous. So much to see! Anyway after 2 weeks of travel, its time to turn our steps homeward. We all wish you the best of life, love and happiness. -Tim, Raven, Camille
