As we approach our 5th summer in business (2002!) we have enjoyed watching our business grow and the reservations come in earlier and earlier each year.  This past year we were booked solid for July & August by the end of March thanks in part to  Lo & behold with early bookings comes more cancellations since life can throw a curve to everyone within a 12 month period.  Gord, your timely assistance in posting our vacancies as they came in due to these cancellations was of great help.  Every week that was cancelled was rebooked.  Some in less than a day all due to the exposure on  As a result, every subsequent phone call that came in was referred to your web site in hopes that they would find accommodation elsewhere.  Great service and great results.  Thanks so much!

I have to say that your web site is a highly successful one as we have been
literally inundated with requests for New Year's Eve, people enquiring
about summer employment and even some accommodation in June!  Rest assured
that we have told many people how effective your site is and hopefully this
may generate some business your way.

Thanks a lot Gord and Nancy, you have been a huge help in promoting Deer

Just a quick note Gord, to thank you for a referral we got from your site.
We were able to sell a $ 300.00 Gift Certificate to a gentleman who said he found
our site through .

Thank you very much for earlier suggestion that Aston Resort
would make a lovely site for a wedding reception. My fiance and I
went to see this it this past weekend and agree it is delightful.

Your Web site was a great find. I wonder if you might be able to
help with some additional information. I'm hoping to be married next
year (September, 2000) in Port Carling and am looking for a
resort/inn  to hold the reception (it would need to accommodate
about 100 to 150 guests). Could you suggest any of the area
resorts that would be suitable for something like this.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
Best regards,

Everything at my fingertips.  Couldn't find a better place to find a
nice place to stay and found one-

Thank you for such a great site !

Just to let you know that our inquiries are way up, and I suspect partly
because of the new cottage-resort site you run.
Mostly they are looking for what we don't have -- last week of July sort of
thing, but sooner or later they'll want the vacancies!

Nancy Tapley, Bondi Village Resort, Dwight, Ontario
