The stone finish went on the house in August 2015.   We have more landscaping planned for the summer of 2016.Living room. (FYI, this sofa has been used  as a single bed when a third person needed a place to sleep.)

Built in 2009, our earth sheltered, solar powered home is situated on 3 acres on the Rainy River. It's a great place to relax and unwind, view the wild life, sit by a camp fire etc.

The space

This is a two bedroom home. Ours is in the east end of the home while the guest room is in the west end, overlooking the river.

The guest room has a queen size bed with an in room vanity and a separate 4 piece bathroom.

Let us know if you need sleeping arrangements for more than two and we can discuss the options.

A home cooked breakfast is included. The menu changes frequently but choices may include eggs, toast, muffins, sausage, bacon, whole grain porridge, yogurt, pancakes, with juice, tea, chai, coffee etc.

Guest access

When not in their bedroom, guests are welcome to relax in the living room, dining room, or kitchen.

Our outdoor areas are also available for guest use. Whether in a lounge chair on the patio or at the picnic table under the big pine, there's plenty of space to unwind.

We have a sauna house, and an outdoor fire pit, down by the river. With advance notice we can easily make either of these ready for guest use.

Our internet is received via a canopy service and unfortunately is not very stable. When it is working, guests are welcome to use the WIFI to check their email.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to take our lead from our guests. Our priority is that you find your stay comfortable and relaxing.

Other things to note

We have many modern conveniences (central vac, dishwasher, washer, dryer, Internet, etc). However, as we live off the grid, we are very conscious of how and when we use electricity. "Conservation" and "Make hay while the sun shines!" are two rules we live by in our solar powered home.

Cathy and Terry are great hosts! The house is very clean, the bed is comfortable and the communication with them was very good, too. Cathy also made awesome breakfast in the morning. We had a great stay at their place and can definitely recommend them!

We enjoyed Sunny Breezes! It was convenient for the activities we had planned and a restful getaway when we had a bit of down time. Wonderful breakfast and conversation. Explore the Rainy River area and stay with Cathy and Terry!

We highly recommmend this home to spend your time. Cathy and Terry are the most hospitable and welcoming couple we have stayed with. Cathy prepares a wonderful breakfast, the conversation is outstanding and the room is extremely comfortable - my husband got his best night of sleep in weeks. Cathy and Terry gave us excellent suggestions for local areas to explore. Don't miss out on this gem! Their home is the gateway to Lake Of the Woods and is beautifully set to on the banks of Rainy River.

Cathy and Terry were very welcoming and kind hosts. The room they provide is very spacious and decorated with love. They do live a little bit far from Fort Frances, but if you stay at their place you have enough to do during your stay. If we had more time we would have spent it with them as much as we could. Beautiful people. Beautiful place. Definitely stay here if you get the chance. P.S.: If you stay at their place ask Cathy for her delicious Cottage Cheese Pancakes for breakfast !
