Joyeux premier anniversaire à Cedarhaus. Quel Plaisir être ici et profiter de la nature ainsi. Notre sèjour fût relaxant et très agréable. Merci pour votre hospitalitè! From our family to yours, thank you for your warm reception and sharing your little corner of paradise with us! May the energy of Cedarhaus bring you many new and interesting visitors for years and decades to come.

Maude & Scott (Dunrobin, Ontario)

Thank you for a super relaxing stay. Being on the lake is a new core memory. We are so appreciative of the local knowledge on hikes and the fully stocked pantry (the English crumpets did not go unnoticed). It was really lovely to meet your gorgeous family. Louisa and Daryl – you can tell that so much love has gone into Cedarhaus.

Kiran & Tiya (London, U.K.)

“Short, but very, very sweet” is how we would like to describe our magical stay at Cedarhaus. We spent the afternoon on and in the lake while listening to the birds singing. We loved our warm welcome here upon our arrival and were pleasantly surprised by the state of the guesthouse and the full kitchen kitchen equipment and pantry options for breakfast. Too bad we couldn’t stay longer!

Nadia & Alex (Toronto, Ontario)

Great base for our first Bancroft sledding trip!

Bill, Paul & Nathan (Alliston, Ontario)

Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway! Cedarhaus is both beautiful and relaxing! We love your thoughtful design and we hope to come back again with our kids. Even in the rain, we enjoyed the scenery and comfy place to stay. We will recommend to everyone!

Shane & Jenny (St. Catharines, Ontario)

Cedarhaus exceeded all expectations! From the amazing and friendly hosts (who were always available and helpful), the newly built cottage with an amazing interior, to the gorgeous private lake – we’ll definitely be looking to find our way back to this beautiful cottage in the future.

Michael & friends (Mississauga, Ontario)

My family had a wonderful stay in Bancroft. Cedarhaus was spotless, comfortable, and stylishly decorated – with such amazing attention to detail! The property is more like staying at a spa retreat than a cottage with beautifully cut paths through the trees, layered with cedar chips, leading to a private lake. The hosts were friendly and responsive to any queries we had and were very knowledgeable about the surrounding amenities.

Chris & Rachel (Dublin, Ireland)

“Thank you so much for an amazing cottage experience. We really enjoyed our stay and you guys are wonderful hosts. I could check off canoeing from my bucket list. Also, thank you very much we could take some really nice pictures and make memories with our little one. Looking forward to coming here again for longer stays.”

Hima & Rahul (Mississauga, Ontario)

Thank you for providing such a good guest experience. It looks like we are completely into a forest but with the amenities of town near by. Very tranquil!

Catherine & Greg (London, Ontario)

Thank you so much for the gorgeous accommodations and exceptional hospitality! Cedarhaus is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed hiking and swimming at 3 nearby Provincial Parks as well as exploring for rocks at the the Smart Mine & Princess Sodalite Mine. The paths through the forest on your property are stunning. Our kids loved looking for the different species of mosses and mushrooms. The view from the dock was to die for. We hope to come back very soon to enjoy your place and the surrounding area in different seasons.

Adrian & Letty (Ottawa, Ontario)

“Thank you for the warm welcome to your wonderful new B&B. We felt very comfortable and will be happy to recommend you. Should we come to Canada again, we will come back to you – but then for sure longer.

Riccardo & Gerlinde (Innsbruck, Austria)

“Cedarhaus was a great experience!”

Tanya & Brian (Hamilton, Ontario)

Thank you for a great/calm night! Our motorcycle trip through the Muskoka’s, Kawartha’s and the Eastern Highlands has been that much more enjoyable. Thank you and rest assured that we will recommend to family and friends to stay here.

Gilles & Ghislaine (Pettawawa, Ontario)

“What a hidden gem! That rock face across the lake is a jaw dropper. We felt right at home here in your peaceful cabin.”

Laura & Mat (Picton, Ontario)

“We had a peaceful, relaxing weekend at Cedarhaus. Louisa & Daryl are excellent hosts who are creating a wonderful retreat in Bancroft . The lake is a short walk through the woods , with extremely calm water to kayak or canoe on . The guesthouse is brand new with a fully stocked kitchen. We would definitely recommend cedarhaus to anyone wanting a quiet time away.”

Lawrence & Judy (Montreal, Quebec)

“A great accommodation, with a short path to the lake, canoes can be used. This is really an experience. The house is in the middle of nature, beautiful!”

Evelyn & Chris (Munich, Germany)

Excellent place for family and friends. Beautiful view and access to private lake is well worth it alone. Cozy and themed, this B&B was well beyond any expectations. Thank you again, Daryl and Louisa. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Beautiful spot to getaway, even for a short stay. We loved our skate on the gorgeous lake and enjoyed your comfortable and cozy accommodations. Thank you for being such gracious and welcoming hosts.

Beautiful property, home and family! We enjoyed our stay. Wonderful place to relax and enjoy outdoor activities.

Dave & Denise (Fonthill, Ontario)

Thank you so much for another beautiful stay at Cedarhaus. It was truly a meaningful way to spend Mother’s Day. It was so great to visit you again.

Alley (St. Catharines, Ontario)

This place is all about peace and relaxation. Daryl and Louisa are extremely welcoming and kind, and you are surrounded by the calming sounds and the serene sights of the great outdoors. The guesthouse is modern and yet has a rustic, warm experience to it. The bedrooms are filled with natural light from the large windows and are very spacious. The beds lend to very comfortable sleep. Louisa offered a relaxing yoga class, good for the soul and body. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, both on the sunny and rainy days. Our only complaint is that we wish we had stayed longer!

Colin & Kimberlee (Effingham, Ontario)

Gorgeous and comfy accommodations. Thank you for the awesome kitchen. The natural beauty here is stunning. Thank you Daryl & Louisa for being such gracious hosts.
