"Having pursued my NHL hockey career in Philadelphia, I still look forward to vacationing on beautiful Lake Nipissing. The all-season secret hide-away of Greening Bay Cottages with plush accommodations, gorgeous beaches and sunsets, and the professional staff has won over my entire family. Here's to the Great North and many years to come."

Bill Barber, Director Player Personnel, Tampa Bay Former Philadelphia Flyer and Coach

"The fishing was fabulous and most of all just being up North and spending time on the lake watching the beautiful sunsets and nature unfold right in front of your eyes was as they say...PRICELESS...The cottages were so comfortable especially after a hard day of being out on the boat catching the BIG ONES. I would recommend Greening Bay Cottages to all my friends and associates as a place to go for a totally fun filled safe and relaxing holiday - and I would also like to say it would be top of my list as a place to bring your kids. I would once again like to thank you both for making our stay one that will last a long time in our memories and I am certainly looking forward to returning to your place as soon as I can."

Skip Prokop, Leader and Producer of LIGHTHOUSE and MERCY TRAIN

"We had a great trip up there.  It was probably the most productive ice fishing trip we have ever experienced.  It was also one of the smoothest, and relaxed trips we have ever had...I think it is because we are use to the cottage, the fishing huts and in addition, the well run operation.  If we do not get back again this winter, we will certainly be aiming to return in May."

Bruce Dobie, Mississauga, Ontario

"Dan and Lynn are two of the most generous and life loving people I have had the pleasure of keeping company with. I was captivated by the breath taking sunsets, still fishing waters, clean night air, and some of the most beautiful star filled skies I have seen in quite some time. As a musician and aspiring songwriter, Greening Bay was the foundation of inspiration and perfect for relaxtion, reflection, and pure enjoyment. Dan and Lynn's generosity and personal service was unmistakenly genuine and gifted me with one of the most enjoyable and memorable times of my life to date. I would recommend Greening Bay to anyone who asked. The cottages are beautiful and spacious, the grounds are clean and kept, and the company is wonderful. Thanks so much Lynn and Dan for your kindness."

We most definitely would like to come back when we get our vacation next year. Thank you for a great week. I have been recommending your cottages to many people since our visit.”

“We wanted to let you know that we had a great week and really enjoyed the comfort of the cottage. We also had two fish fry’s so Lake Nipissing provided the fry pan again on this holiday!!”

Carol, John & Ryan Dowhaniuk, Brantford, Ontario

"Thank you Lynn and Dan for the wonderful weekend we had ice fishing at your wonderful resort.  Everything was, how should I say, other than perfect.  The cottage was roomy and the ice hut was also very roomy and comfortable.  Even the ride out to the hut was enjoyable.  We had a great time and hope to see you again next year.  We also liked the part where you went out of your way to let us fish in other locations.  It was an experience we will all remember.  Thanks again."

Ken Kohut, Smithville, Ontario

"For many years we have been vacationing on Lake Nipissing. We love the area, the people we have met, the beauty, and the relaxing atmosphere. Greening Bay Cottages is part of that tradition, well managed, comfortable and located on one of the best bays on the entire lake. We can't wait for next year!!"

Chris and Jim Crosbie, Fullerton, California

"Just a short note of thanks for the wonderful time you provided for Marlene and I. Your facilities were A-1 and the fishing was fantastic thanks to you being able to put us on top of fish. We took back home with us wonderful memories of the beautiful north country and hopefully we will be able to make it back again next year."

Bill and Marlen Fay, Waterloo, Ontario

"Thanks very much for the great weekend.  Your accommodations and service were excellent.  I have been fishing Nipissing and Simcoe for 28 years now and those huts of yours are BOSS (the best I have ever seen).  I will definitely be returning next year and may even squeeze in a couple of weekends with you."

Shawn Moore, New Market, Ontario

"Lynn and Dan, Thank you for letting us stay at your cottage.  I liked fishing the best.  Jenna liked Tar."

Jonathan (age 6) and Jenna (age 2) of the Bauer famiy, Komoka, Ontario

Thank-you for the weekend.  All of us really enjoyed it.  You have a tremendous place.  We have been to a lot of different operators over the years and all being good however your operation is the best we have seen.  You are both tremendous hosts and made all of us feel welcome.  We are already looking forward to next year.

Ed Pomerleau, Uxbridge, Ontario.  re:  ice fishing 2010

My hats are off to both Dan and yourself and the wonderful resort you have.  I have been coming up to Lake Nipissing for over 35 years and regularly went with a number of outfitters in North Bay until they have all recently disappeared.  My brother-in-law and myself have been searching for a new resort for the past few winters and both of us agree that we are totally impressed by the job you guys do in trying to satisfy all your customers needs.  It is safe to say we will be back next year.  All told we figured we caught over 120 perch and kept sixty and the Ling was a special treat as I haven't seen one in quite a few years. 

Marty Spoelstra, St. Thomas, Ontario 2011-01-23

I wanted to thank you for your hospitality.  We appreciated the little things like the chairs and groceries.  I have been trying for years to provide the callibre of an ice fishing experience for my family.  You provided a perfect venue for memories.  Thanks.

Jody Scheiffley, MNR, 2014-01-10

Thanks to Dan and Lynn from the McLean group for your hospitality.  All had a great time, fishing was awesome, the lodging fantastic.  You have a great place and worth visiting again.
