A Dream Come True for our 45th Wedding Anniversary
"Over a year ago we had a family meeting to decide what to for our 45th. We couldn't have found a better place than the Winking Rosebud. It was a large complex where we could all enjoy doing whatever we wanted. The resort is amazing. Super clean everywhere and extremely well maintained. Brenda and Ross take great pride in owning this complex and we were so fortunate to have found this beautiful place, hidden in the forest. We all enjoyed the beautiful water on the Rideau Lake. Both the kids and adults loved the kayaks, canoe and our own motor boat. The men loved the fish they caught on the lake and we all enjoyed a fish feast. Everyone had wonderful beds and most of us were able to have our own rooms. The foosball table in the carriage house was a hit as well as we played many a volleyball game. The endless pool, sauna and hot tub were enjoyed by young and old. Each couple made one meal and then cleaned up. They all commented on the great facilities in the kitchen. Lots of space for our food in the fridge/freezer and the dishwasher was an added bonus for those cleaning up. There were lots of counters for prep work as well as a well stocked kitchen. The large porches on the lodge and cottage made for great conversation by all. The view overlooking the water and surrounded by the many trees were so relaxing for either sitting alone reading or playing all those card games so many of us enjoyed. Karaoke was also a big hit for both the young kids and the older group. Mind you, some of us could sing a whole lot better than others. I would like to thank Russ and Brenda for sharing their home so we could enjoy the best vacation we ever had. The main lodge is out of this world with a unique decor that must be seen to be enjoyed."

"Our group of 4 had a good time at this relaxing cottage. Excellent location to see things in the area. The property was clean and had everything we needed. We have it on our list as a cottage to return to in the future."
