“An amazing magical and truly relaxing gataway shared with best friends. Many thanks to Henri for the perfect introduction to a peaceful weekend full of laughter, support and growth. From the secret garden tour, to the many deer and birds, delicious jams and granola, and personal SSI tours of the cheese factory and beautiful provincial parks, this weekend was even better than I imagined. I cannot wait to return! (Dancing Light Cottage reconfirmed the importance of taking time each day to realize how beautiful our surrounding world is) Thank you.
