Some letters from past Retreats:

"Thank you all so very much for your hospitality and warmth last weekend. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at KBR and hope to come back again sometime soon. Your thoughtfulness (providing us with turkey bacon was so sweet) and love have left us glowing. May you be blessed in all you do"


"Thanks for your friendliness, caring atittude, efficiency and hospitality at the St John's Anglican Church, Lakefield, Retreat Day on Saturday. Most appreciated! Blessing on and with your work."

Hello to all at Kingfisher Bay Retreat!

Thank you so much for the hospitality you showed my wife and I as we attended this past weekendsí Marriage Retreat with Peter and Marja.

We have never been treated so as well as by you folks. Your spirit of Christian hospitality went beyond our expectations. From the beautifully layed out lodge building with is real northern Ontario styling to the comfortable rooms and beds, it was a 5-star-plus accommodation. Not to mention the heated floors which were so nice.

The Lord gave you folks a great vision and He is seen in the details! The 6 course meal on Saturday night was exquisite in everything from the meal/presentation/table arrangement to the ìservingî staff. The extra surprises of a nature walk to your cabin with hot chocolate waiting and the practical demonstration by the masseuse put the weekend over the top. I cannot help but get excited when I repeat our experiences to friends and family. It was wonderful to worship with you on Sunday as well. I know the Lord will continue to show his favour over you folks as you spread His love to others through your service and possessions. You truly blessed my wife and I and all who attended.

Best regards through Jesus

"Thank you so much for hosting our leadership team building day. You did a fantastic job and as a result you have some “Raving Fans” from CVC. You really ministered to my team with your gracious hospitality – thank you much!."

"I wanted you all to know that the Session of St. Andrews Presbyterian church is absolutely raving about the retreat you hosted Nov. 4-5. I wish I could have been there. They loved the hospitality, facility, food and even the beds. Thank you for your vision in providing such a venue. We are already discussing a return visit. God bless you all."


"Thank you all for a wonderful lunch and tour around your wonderful facility. The Keenagers from Northview were all buzzing about how great they were all treated. I look forward to coming again."


"Wow!! What an amazing God filled weekend…We are sure that many lives will be challenged and blessed by coming to Kingfisher, as well as your own lives, as ours already were. Congratulations again on seeing your dream become a reality. God is good."

"I have no idea how to express just how grateful we are for you and the Spirit for guiding all of you to build this Retreat House. After we left, we commented over and over what a huge blessing it was to be there. I walked away refreshed (not usual after being 'on' at a retreat). We both made a commitment to speak to you about setting up a time once a month or every 6 weeks to book a time away together at the House so we can re-group, spend time with God and each other. I know of no other place that offers the promise of renewal like Kingfisher Bay does for us. It is truly an answer to prayer for us. Thanks to all of you."

"On Tuesday June 21, I was a part of the Northview seniors group that came to your facility for lunch. As a person with special dietary needs (gluten free) I want to thank you for your kind, compassionate and caring ways in ministering to that need. The food was delicious, and I appreciate the above and beyond service that I received. Thank you once again, I look forward to visiting with you again. Wishing you God's blessings on yourselves and the retreat centre."
