Your Hosts Diana and Victor

We get many accolades from people who have visited our B&B and we want to share with
our viewers a few that were written in our guest book.

August 2010

Dear Diana

Few weeks since we are back home we stil have grate memories from our brief visit at your B&B.

Alma our daughter phrases it like this: "You had to plan much longer stay at this excellent location and give-up our time spends in Toronto". Children at her age put the thing clearly on the table.

Another thing, the good characters of Potter impressed Alma so much until she is now seeking a dog. It is a real big step forward for a child who is in general afraid from dogs.

As I promised you, I posted a very warm recommendation for staying with you (At list couple of days). It is in Hebrew unfortunately, but I hope you will get some visitors following my little contribution.

Best regards

Diana & Victor

Thank you so much for welcoming us to your lovely home and providing us with a warm and relaxing atmosphere in which to spend a much needed getaway. We really enjoyed the beautiful surroundings here...this has probably been our most peaceful vacation so far.

Talking with the two of you was great, and thanks, Diana for your advice on things to do in the area. Visiting "Bear was definitely the highlight - what a fascinating man!

Thanks Diana on your understanding, advice, and willingness to provide creative, wholesome meals for "special diets". This can be rare and know that it is much appreciated!

Hopefully we'll come back some day, and maybe bring our kids...they'll love it.

Take Care,
Pam and Ben (Niagara)

Hi Diana,

We had a great visit with Bear: lots of music, songs, stories, friendly dogs and a horse, a walk in the woods and a swim at a lovely lake, then lunch. Thanks so much for arranging the visit with us. He’s a brilliant man. It’s good to meet someone who follows his own star and lives life fully.

We had a wonderful visit with you and Victor – a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.

Thanks for your warm hospitality.

Best wishes - Janet

Dear Diana & Victor (Emma and Potter)

What can we say? “Thank you “seems so small, too tiny to express the enjoyment & pleasure & appreciation we feel for our time with you. Thank you for allowing us to share not only your house and home & absolutely wonderful food, but also for allowing us to share your amazing friend Joe and your company, your life experiences & your lives, even if only for so short a period of time.

Our stay with you was like being at home - our personal circle has grown and been enriched with the addition of you and Victor and Emma and Potter.

Much love

George and Regina Harvey and Deb (Branford Ontario)

PS. The dancing was great-both at Blockhouse Island, and in your kitchen!

June 25, 2009

"I would double the amen and raise you one. Thanks so much to my family for the great birthday dinner, delicious cake (both compliments of Chef Diana) and the pottery gifts of my choice!
Diana you were a gracious host, along with your husband Victor. Thanks for the meals, the driving, thanks to Potter for the walks, the bike ride led by Victor - thanks for everything. We will definited have to do this again.

Trip home uneventful. Weather in Halifax is horribly muggy, the kitter litter wasn't changed, the house reeked and neither men habitating the place even noticed. Now ain't that grand!"

"Thank you Diana and Victor for a hosting us and organizing a wonderful time. Your home is so inviting, and what wonderful meals you prepare. Still hoping for a recipe for that great pasta salad. We will have to work on getting together more often. (is this because we are getting
older and see time running out?) Whatever, we enjoyed ourselves immensely."

Victor & Diana,
Diana your assistance getting us in touch with the hot air balloon ride, the cruise tour of 1000 Islands, and the all day kayaking around the 1000 Islands was indispensably helpful- your help was amazing-

Thank You!!

The views around and from your house are breathtaking. The art pieces and decorating are phenomenal. Your website is the best!

You both were a perfect host and hostess giving yourselves to us openly. Your transparency in conversation is outstanding
The entire weekend (extended) was amazing. Thank you both very much!

Best wishes to you both.
Love, Dale and June (South East Pennsylvania)

Dear Diana & Victor
What a great opportunity for a quick getaway in the beautiful area of 1000 Islands in a nice, loving and welcoming home.

It has been a great pleasure to stay here and to be a part of your lives for a short two days. You have created a beautiful oasis here, and opened it to all of us. What a great honor to be part of that.

I came here with my dear uncle and aunt for a relaxing weekend and we received that and more. The Reiki sessions with your friend Lise were so divine for our spirits. The comfortable beds provided us with great sleep to nourish our souls. The ambiance is so soothing…

Thank you for opening your hearts and your welcoming home.
I hope we meet sometime soon, next time with my parents.
With love and peace from

Elena, Tanti Irma (Mome) & Nenea Culita (Bibi) aka “the Romanians” (via Vermont and Montreal)

Dear Diana and Victor, Potter and Emma.
We somehow knew we were going to love it all, and we did…even more so!
Thanks so much for your gifts of warmth and welcome, of generosity and creativity. The beauty and tranquility were real gifts for me.

Kayaking was memorable, thanks for suggesting it. I wouldn’t have missed it . The studio tour was also fascinating insight into this area.

I can’t believe we were here just 3 days. Thanks so much, and hopefully we will see you again, and next timeI may be a little more healthy.

Much love,
Fenella and Ray (Winnipeg, Manitoba)

Diana & Victor
Thanks so much for a wonderful interlude- the breakfast birthday cake was very thoughtful!
So glad you mentioned the 1000Is Kayaking- the day long tour was well worth the money.
We are taking away some lovely memories.

B & B Anecdotes

June 2008

Thank You! So Much!
Diana and Victor—
For sharing your beautiful home, gardens, and adorable “children” Emma and Potter, and making me feel so welcome and at home; the first cup of coffee in the morning on the veranda with the birds; the delicious breakfasts; the personally guided tour of Brockville; coupons for the Island cruise; the ‘trip to India’; browsing through the pottery studio; and that spectacular view over the river! Just to name a few of the highlighlights.

The time at Island View was all too short; but I hope to enjoy your wonderful hospitality again at some future date.

You folks are indeed the host and hostess with the mostest! As the song says:
“Thanks For The Memories”

Dear Diana
Dear Victor
We were so lucky to meet you!
Almost everything in life is “a question of timing”… and so was our meeting. We stayed only few days with you and I already feel a close relative to both of you, Potter and Emma.

These were relaxing, interesting, sad, happy-days with lots of emotions.

Diana! You are a unique person, strong and tender, perfectionist but giving lots of space and much more of these….And you, Victor, you give such a close and warm feeling-like a good big brother.
I can continue on…Talking about the wonderful, colourful breakfast, walk in the park…but it is time to leave. I already miss you

bye bye (Shalom Shalom)
Thanks a lot (Ta Da Raba)
meet you in (Lehitraut)
Beautiful Israel (Beisrael Hayafa)
With Love from Yaron, Margalit, and Hagar

September 2007

Following a recommendation from our friends in our small rural Oxfordshire village when we were planning our trip across Canada we just had to come and stay with you. We have loved our stay with you just as much as they did. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, and recommending our cruise trip with Dave. On a crystal day we had a magical boat trip around the islands landing at Boldt Castle. Although the castle’s story is a sad one we were so glad we took time to enjoy the grandeur of earlier times.

Thank you both for your hospitality and generosity.
We shall always treasure our stay with you and, just as friends did, will recommend our friends in England to come and stay with you too.

Sincere thanks
Keith and Noreen

December 2007

As usual, we’ve been drenched down to our toes in peace and tranquility by the lovely surroundings and wonderful conversation.

The peaceful surroundings and energy as well as your patience with an active toddler was much appreciated! Emma and Potter were great playmates for the under two crowd, and Andre and I loved the big soaker tub!

We’ll be back with an older Madelaine shortly- perhaps in the summer to play in the woods.
