What a wonderful place - we really enjoyed our stay. It was very relaxing and a perfect location to do day trips. The accommodations were great - thank you for all the good food - the unit was well equipped. It was nice to meet you!

 Felix and Jacquie. Thank you for another wonderful stay @ Valley View. This time we managed one of the trails down the valley. Next time we'll see the rapids (we didn't take the map!) The food was perfect - as always - and the accommodation complete. Thanks for the wild life show outside of our window and the cool weather.

 Another wonderful restful stay with you! The flowers and birds are a delight. Despite the rain we enjoyed our time here. Look forward to seeing you again next year when we return to the Stratford Festival. Best regards.

We were so comfortable that we didn't really want to leave to see anything. Would have been content to sit and watch the birds! Thanks for your hospitality.

What a treat! Surrounded by wonderful nature, flowers, eating breakfast while watching the birds and squirrels eat theirs, the hikes and the very educational art lesson - we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for your hospitality and warmth.

Thanksgiving! Once again, a special few days were spent here in your peaceful surrounding, along with all the comforts of home! The food selection you provided was truly "bountiful"! We could not have asked for more! Thank you so very much Jacqui & Felix for the wonderful anniversary surprise waiting for us upon our arrival! That was so very thoughtful and truly appreciated! We had a wonderful time, and thank you both for helping to make our anniversary & Thanksgiving weekend a special one! See you again, with warm regards,

What a wonderful respite! Your accommodations are perfect offering privacy, a peaceful setting and panoramic views.....we enjoyed watching a variety of birds congregate at the feeder as we dined on and abundance of food you so generously supplied for us! Hiking down to the river was exhilarating (if not arduous for 50-something's!) and taking in some golf and dinner in St. Marys topped off a very pleasant Saturday. Blair enjoyed fly fishing at a nearby mill pond while I basked in the serenity of solitude on a spectacular autumn Sunday morning. Could one ask for more? We think not! We shall return! Thank you so much.

St Marys Rock Quarry Pool

A converted quarry has become Ontario's largest supervised swimming pool. Spring fed, "The Quarry" is a popular spot in the heat of summer.

On the way to St. Marys you can often see the Great Blue Herons fishing in the Thames river.
