23 years ago (1993) Jessie and I had our breath taken away by the beautiful morning sunrise. We looked at each other and both said “We should be sharing this” and Stouffer Mill Bed & Breakfast Getaway was born.
It is a constant joy to us to see our guests unwinding from the hustle and bustle of their busy lives as they relax and enjoy our home and property. Many guests arrive with their cell phones in their hands, at the ready, and by the time they leave, many of them can’t find them. We have had to mail back cell phones that were left here. We can remember two guests in particular, who were
terminally ill with cancer that returned for a last visit to Stouffer Mill. That makes you feel that you’re doing something right.
The industry average for the life of a Bed & Breakfast is about 5 years. This year (2016) we are in our 23rd year and still enjoy sharing our home and property with our guests. Many of our guests have become friends and we visit back and forth.
Stouffer Mill Bed & Breakfast Getaway provides four season accommodation in the Haliburton Highlands in the Township of Algonquin Highlands, midway between Minden & Dorset. Our home is a unique, 12-sided, circular post & beam structure with suspended rooms and furnished with Canadiana antiques throughout. Our 3 guest rooms all have ensuite or private baths and patio doors to private decks. The roof-top solarium with 360 degree panoramic view and hot tub soothes and relaxes you for that perfect night’s rest. The guest gathering room with cosy fireplace, and the peace and quiet, makes Stouffer Mill the perfect spot for that romantic getaway or weekend escape.
Stouffer Mill offers most of the amenities of a larger resort but affords the intimacy and attention that only a bed & breakfast can offer.
Our guests can roam our 136 acre forest estate, marvel at the panoramic view of the wetlands, or, if you are quiet and patient, maybe some wildlife at the 10 acre active beaver pond, all on our year-round 5 Km nature trails. There are complimentary walking sticks for the spring, summer & fall and snowshoes for the winter and of course a trail map.
Only 40 minutes from Algonquin Park and the Haliburton Forest & Wildlife.
We’d love to share our little piece of paradise with you!
Don and Jessie
