Cozy and warm, thank you for charm of fancy Fiddlehead Cabin, the sauna was a real treat on this deep freeze of a weekend. Loved our stroll into the wintry beauty of Crooked Mountain with our new friend - Teddy and enjoyed reading the old editions of the Canadian Geographic.

Cheers to new adventures, new friends, and new blades of grass!!

Dear Cathy and Linda,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fiddlehead. Your attention to detail and colour made the space very welcoming. It almost felt like something out of Harry Potter!!

In our two days here we went on lots of adventures fro kayaking on Clear Lake to hiking beautiful trails with all the brilliant colours that fall has to offer. But something that happened to Omar and I that we cherish the most was the big grey owl that resides in the area. We first saw it on top of a telephone line yesterday morning. Then later in the evening at around dusk while sitting outside on the porch in the very comfy chairs - the owl flew out from the trees straight towards us. I thought it was going to land on the porch and join in our conversation but instead it landed on the roof completely silently and flew off. So stunning and so beautiful. What an honor to see such a majestic bird up close. We love this place! It was so peaceful and restful. Got to spend it with the love of my life:). I am so blessed. Thank you for creating such a beautiful space.

It's a pleasure to come to Crooked Mountain in any season, but with this being our first summer trip in a while it was particularly lovely to relax on the porch of the Fiddlehead while watching the hummingbirds, great grey owls, blue & grey jays, finches and deer. You've created such a comfortable and magical place here!

Thank you for having us back this year. This was our second stay at Fiddlehead and it's just as picturesque and peaceful as we remembered! Simon and I would put Stella to sleep, then sit on the porch and read and drink tea until the stars came out. We come here and always leave feeling a renewed sense of peace, connection and centred-ness.

We feel so well taken care of in your amazing cabin! Thank you for creating such a memorable place for our family!

Cathy and Linda,

Thank you so much for creating this beautiful place! It was the perfect place to relax after planning a wedding. This place truly felt like home and we can't wait to come back.

The sauna was so lovely! We made good use of it! The trail right outside our cabin was also a lovely surprise. Every detail of the cabin was so lovely - we were taking notes for our future place! We loved sitting on the porch in the comfiest chairs - we would just sip wine and chat until we were chilled by the night air. The cabin has a beautiful view! We even saw a grey owl one day! Thank you for making our honeymoon so special. The bottle of wine and fresh flowers on the table was so sweet!

Take care,
James and Caralee Robertson

P.S. Thanks for suggesting a visit to Poor Michael's- we loved it and went back many times throughout our stay here! I'm happy to say that we are going home with a bag full of books and some local art work!

This place is a birding paradise. We counted nine different species just from the deck alone! Thank you for providing such a beautiful place to enjoy them from. The attention to detail only added to the joy of watching the little hummingbird defend his territory or the tiny chipping sparrow dancing across the lawn in the early morning.

From the crazily comfortable chairs on the deck to the beautiful artistry all throughout the cabin - this place is amazing. I've stayed in 5 star hotels that weren't this clean! We will definitely be back even if it is a 10 hour drive! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

What a serene and charming place. My husband, daughter and I are leaving feeling well rested and renewed. Stella said" It smells like flowers out here!" as we sat on the porch our first night here. Watching her excitement at seeing her first hummingbird at the feeder and eating our suppers together each night with the view of the spruce trees and wildflowers through the window are memorize we can now hold dear.

So many thoughtful touches went into making us feel like cherished guests. I really appreciate how clean and well taken care of this cabin is. It was also nice having everything we truly needed - from plates and cups to paper towel. Everything else from smooth, silky sheets to the wildflower bouquet on the table made this feel like a "home away from home".

Thank you so much!

Also a great blue heron, Sandhills crane and the most annoying ravens!

We expanded our knowledge of Manitoba wild flowers and put our new binoculars to good use! We had a good time, to say the least, we ate well, slept well, and most importantly forgot about work. We need to come back in the fall to see the colors and check out that sauna!

Well, I am not even quite sure where to begin. I guess I’ll start by saying this weekend was just what the doctor ordered. We totally unplugged – that is to say, no computer, no cell phone, no e-mail. We ate and drank and read (and did other things!) in your beautiful cabin and beautiful surrounding. Everything in the cabin was obviously so well considered and envisioned – you can tell there has been an artist at work! It was lovely to wake up with the sun and go to bed when we felt tired – no schedule. We were very excited to see a farmer driving his cows down the road, moving them from pasture to pasture. They checked us out as they walked past but ambled happily on their way. It was great to finally get here. (Cathy knows the story!)

The fall colours were fantastic! Walks here & in the park, bike rides, wine on the porch. It was a great home away from home. We’ll spread the word about your cabins. Thanks for everything.

Linda & Cathy,

What can we say that hasn’t already been said?

We can’t wait to come back next year (so we won’t be telling too many people).

We haven’t been so relaxed in a long time and don’t feel the need to rush out to the park as nature seems to come to our front door.

I feel bad that the fridge died & you had to replace it with a new one – but it doesn’t really take away from the mood you have created.

Thank you for the wine, the home away from home you were able to provide and for welcoming us.

In Italy this is a lucky day and I agree as my oldest son was born on a Friday the 13th. However, we are leaving today so it is not entirely fortuitous. You have created a beautifully crafted, harmonious, relaxing abode. I never could understand how people could hide themselves away in the woods for months to write until I came here. I feel I could come here and stay for long stretches. The quiet, the beauty inside and out, the mists in the morning, the sunsets. Thank you for the best part of our trip to Manitoba.

We’ve had the most relaxing five days here at your lovely cabin. From the early morning wake-up by the woodpecker hammering on the side of the cabin to falling asleep to the calls of the birds. We’re really taking on board the natural rhythms of the area.

We’ve been lucky enough to see pelicans on otter lake, bears and elk in RMNP and deer everywhere we’ve looked.

We really appreciated your welcome and the help you offered us with the car.

Good luck for the future, you’ve got a lovely thing going on here and we wish you all the best.

Catherine's partner was in a play this weekend, so I had the good fortune to come to Fiddlehead Cabin. This is my favourite place in Manitoba! The art in the cabin features my favourite colours, and I can imagine living in this space very happily.

The view from the futon is lovely in the morning, though in my befuddled morning mind the sun through the trees looked like forest fire and I woke Catherine! We also enjoyed some early morning cow vocalizations from the front porch.

When I was a little girl, I overheard my mother say to my aunt "sometimes Wendy has to go into a corner and tuck it in around herself." That's still true, half a century later.

So here I am, tucked in, at Crooked Mountain, where the vibrant living force of nature has embraced and consoled me, and the creative, positive energy that went into building this exquisite cabin have cut through the ropes that tied me to my pain.

There is a balm at Crooked Mountain that can heal an injured spirit.

It is a privilege to be here.

Well, we spent our first night in your beautiful little cabin and are still in awe of what you have created. I plan to write a little in here everyday. I really enjoyed the sounds as we fell asleep, and waking up to them was reminiscant of hiking with dad.

...

Well yesterday was again an amazingly gorgeous day. A bit chilly in the morning, but as it has been all week it passed. We played more crib in the morning. Chelsea skunked me three times and did a good job reminding me of that throughout the day (lol). We golfed the beautiful course at Clear Lake. The scenery there is very picturesque and the scores were low so that was nice. Thank you for letting us tour the other cabins. They are equally as gorgeous as our Fiddlehead. We are already planning to bring Madison and Leif here seometime next year.

...

We spent pretty much all day at the beach yesterday and could have used a bit more suntan lotion 'cause we look like a couple of lobsters, lol. Great day for it though. We went kayaking, played frisbee in the water, and tried the boogie board I got in Brandon, but it was not easy so I gave it away to some kids that I'm sure had more fun with it. We had a very good supper at T.R. McCoys and finished the evening with a cruise on the Martese. Another fabulous day.

...

So ten days married and Chelsea tried to kill me with a golf ball. I was sitting in the cart no more than ten feet away beside her, and it went right off the toe of her club straight into the side of my head. We finished the round though, so I think I'm fine (lol). It was another great day. We also caught a movie in the nice log theatre. What a week so far!

...

Well this is the last entry I'll take in the book. We leave today and are thankful that the rain held off till now. What a perfect week we had here. You guys have done an amazing job creating a peaceful, relaxing getaway. For our last full day here, yesterday, we stayed around the cabin playing cribbage & croquet most of the day. We also played and quickly got addicted to lawn bowling in town. Brian Milne says hi, he played a few games with us. We might go golfing at the Clear Lake course again today on our way out, then back to home we go. Although we both wish we could just bring the kids back and call this home. We look forward to bringing them here for a time next year, and I hope we again are lucky enough to pick the most gorgeous week of the year. Thank you so much for everything, we won't ever forget this.

You have done such a wonderful job of giving us the best of two worlds - the joy of the wilderness with complete comfort. Though our stay had uncooperative weather - cold and cloudy, we loved the cozy cabin, our own good food after many days on the road, and the great tramp through your woods.

Thank you for sharing your vision and Cathy's fantastic art.

Dear Linda and Cathy,

Happy 30th Anniversary. How lucky we are to have found you at a time such as this and to be able to celebrate it with you. Your hospitality extends beyond Rosebud, the trails (and the wee tornado that downed 100 plus trees in the back) and into your home and lives. What a pleasure it has been - to eat and sleep in absolute quiet - to wake up to the sun rising and the dew glistening on the meadow and of course these wild and happy birds. We roller skied, hiked, paddle boarded and in general did all sorts of fitness things. This is a perfect spot for all that.

We are ready to book again......an oasis of peace -

Thank you

I'm amazed at the detail and well thought through furniture and decor. If we ever get a chance to come back, we most certainly will.
