Our Story

The Treehouse Story

Our story won the most romantic Bed & Breakfast story in January 2012 when I shared how the Treehouse Bed & Breakfast came to be.  All the Bed & Breakfast owners on BBCanada.com voted for the most romantic story and ours won the most votes.  It goes like this......

Brent and I met through a singles phone line, which was the equivalent of online dating sites back in 1999.  Starting my career in construction management meant work days were sometimes over 10 hours long, leaving little time for dating people the usual way.  With some encouragement from my friend, I had placed a message on the singles phone line and was left several messages from men to potentially date, all of whom sounded super creepy and made me question the whole process.  That is until I heard one message from this man who sounded so nice, and as it turns out was the only one I ever called back.  I found the courage to call that nice man and we ended up talking on the phone for hours and his name was Brent.  

Brent and I decided to take the chance on a blind date and we talked even more in person.  On that blind date Brent talked about his family cottage and when I asked him where it was he replied Lake Eugenia.  I almost fell off my chair because I had a cottage growing up at Lake Eugenia.  Brent seemed pretty skeptical when I said as much, surely we must have been on opposite sides of the lake, after all it is a pretty big lake.  We started exchanging stories about our cottages and as it turned out my family cottage was along the same road as Brent's family cottage and we had only been a short walk away from each other since we were both little kids.  

I told Brent about the tree house my sisters and I would go to on our bikes by the road that was close to his family's cottage and how I remember that a boy tried to kick us out of that tree house because he said it was his.  That's when Brent told me he was that boy and recited the rest of the story back to me.

We spent the rest of the night talking about how much we love Lake Eugenia and the whole area.  Sadly my parents sold our family cottage when I was 12 years old and I had to leave the area.

Brent and I were married at Lake Eugenia on his parent's dock in 2002.  A year after we were married Brent started building our cottage on the lot next to his parent's place at Lake Eugenia.  We have two beautiful sons and Brent has built me a new tree house that we call The Treehouse Guest Suites and I feel like I have returned home.  We love running our accommodations business and telling people why we call it our "Treehouse."  I feel I have come home again and will never leave it again.
