    Wow! Thank you so much for everything. It was a great place for us to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Meals and atmosphere were exceptional. We loved holding our happy hours in the gazebo. We really appreciated all the special effort in making us our 6-course meal for our anniversary! I won't need to eat for a week. The house and grounds are beautiful. We will be back!

    P.S. It is 42kms from Harlem Stonegate to Chaffey's Lock return, not 20kms LOL! It was [an] amazing cycling trip!
