Most museums say ‘look but don’t touch’. The Bunn House says ‘come and explore; experience history!’ We loved it all. Thanks so much.

July 2019The favourite period in English litereature for me has always been the 19th Century, so you can’t imagine how happy you have made me by giving me a chance to expreience a real home for that period. (felt like Anne of the Green Gables!) It all exceeded our expectations, the nature around the house, the quiet and peace – and above all we really appreciate your warm welcome including the great tour. We learnt so much and the affectionate way you received us. Thanks a million for offering your home and your kindnessLole and Jose (Spain)

An amazing stay in a great place. Love all the history and the cat fishing was great as well.

July 2019–Kara & Jason Taylor (Deer Valley, SK)

This has been a cozy place to spend a couple of peaceful days. It’s part cottage (restful) and part museum (interesting and stimulating). Thank you for lovingly preserving such an important part of Manitoba history!

July 2020Always feels like coming home. You make us feel most welcome and we appreciate it. A special place for our family, thank you for your hospitalitySamantha, Paul, Justine

We booked the home as a quick getaway – a time to gather with two other couples. We spent our time hiking, visiting the Alpacas and just hanging out with friends playing cards, cooking together and relaxing. Our hosts were amazing! They made sure we had everything we needed and were available if we had any questions during our stay. They left a fridge stocked with eggs, bacon, fruit, yogurt etc – everything you could need to prepare your breakfasts. The house was spacious, with nooks & a variety of rooms if you wanted to take time to yourself away from others. The screened in porch was our favourite gathering place – it too was air conditioned (as was the main house). The 3 bedrooms upstairs were perfect. A lot of the decor reflected the history of the home, but yet modern comfortable furnishings were also throughout the home. My husband said within the first hour there he definitely wants to return.

September 2020Brought our baby Ember, sister Haily and nephew Kayden for a “COVID vacation” it was like sleeping in another world. Thank you for the chance to slip past the glass at the museum. I hope you continue to preserve this moment in history for generations to enjoy. I know I sure did! Our stay was so mesmerizing we never wanted to go out. Take in some fishing, we caught our biggest catfish here!Brandon, Trish

What a fantastic place to come for R&R. Probably fantastic for lots of activities but the peace and tranquility was perfect. Darlene’s cats had a marvellous safe space to be in after a long trip. Wish we had more time to take it all in. Cheers!

September 2020–Carla & Darlene

Thanks to Bev & Fraser for your generous hospitality and a memorable Get-Away. And if the thought of a pasture trail doesn’t entice you do it anyway. It feels like being in a Robert Frost poem – Lovely!

October 2020–Francis & Robert (Winnipeg)

To say we merely “enjoyed” our stay would not suffice, we found the Bunn house very very Very nice.

From the Armodillo basket, Leopard skin, and foot warming device. There were so many antiques with mystic to entice!

If we could describe our time here…and be precise… we’d have to say ” Its been a slice!” Thanks for the hospitality
