Dan and Anne,
As I sit here in the comfort of my home, reality is setting in that I won't be waking up to the smell of Canadian air! I'd like to say thank you to the Burkholders for a perfect fishing trip, since none of us in our group of 5 have ever been to the English River, I myself was little nervous on what to expect as far as finding the Sweet spots! But low and Burkhold, Dan wasted no time in getting us out and showing us just a handful sweet spots to fish! Anne's sweet personality was great to see! I will absolutely be coming back to Cozy Camp! " North of The Tension Zone" is the only way to describe the the vibe of the Burkholders! Thank You very Much!

After a 9 hr drive I was ready for a hot bath and to look at pictures-here were my 3 favorite.
Despite the not perfect weather and the tougher fishing conditions, I had a great time and learned how to fish a river.
The river is beautiful, the cabins clean and quiet, and your hosting fantastic.
It was a father-son trip I will always cherish.
Thanks again for watching out for Joe

Hope all is well with you. Had a safe trip home. But the reason I wanted to email you was to tell you what a great time we had this year.
We always have a good time but this year seemed exceptional! Thanks much for saving our spot. Thanks for all your hospitality!
Take care and have a great rest of the summer.

Dan and Anne,
I have no idea how our vacation could have been better. Your cabins and boats are terrific; the fishing is outstanding; the moose, bear, and eagles are plentiful; the area is absolutely magnificent; and the hosts are most gracious and helpful. We all are looking forward to our next trip.
Thanks for some great memories!
Dan and Anne,
I wanted to thank both of you for a great week of grouse hunting, your hospitality and new friendship. Pack had told me how much I would enjoy Cozy Camp, but even his bragging about you did not do justice to the fun, relaxation and enjoyment that I had while with you. Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise (yes, I really am from the South), I will be there with Pack again next year. Take care and please stay in touch.

Hi Dan and Anne oh and Sam,
I just wanted to tell you again what a fabulous time we had on the island at Talking Falls; it was the perfect combination of relaxation and excitement and the outback cabin is great! It was one of the best vacations we have ever had and I have never caught so much fish in my life (we caught and ate our limit every day). Here are the pictures we promised, I hope you can use some on you web site. I am in the process of picking some videos for you as well (I will mail those on DVD).
Have a great fall/winter and hopefully we will see you all next summer!
Love to you all!

Dan, Anne,and Sam,
Thanks for a memorable trip. It was as you predicted, worth the extra distance. Our family group-fathers, sons and cousins, has been all over Manitoba and Ontario in the past 25 years and this was one of the best trip in terms of fishing. Attached are just a few pictures of our trip. You will probably receive more in a few days. One of the pics is of me holding the 2 biggest walleyes that I have ever caught!

Just a short note to express our appreciation to you for another memorable fishing trip. This was our 6th trip to Cozy Camp and probably our best!
We caught several walleye over 20 inches with the largest at 25 inches. Hope we are able to come again next year.
Stay in touch.

I’m home! Thank you for yet another incredible and unforgettable week at Cozy Camp!
Love you guys!

PS – Awesome bears! You truly are THE BEAR MAN!
Dan and Ann, and of course Sam,
Another extremely enjoyable fishing trip! Here are a few pictures that we thought you might enjoy. One is of the silver northern that I caught and the other is of one of the two moose that our group saw this trip. Cannot say enough about the accommodations and the quality of fishing that our group had this year and of years past. Of the three trips (three years to date) that we have spent at your camp, all have stood out to be especially unique in their own way. Either way, spending time with my family, catching monster fish, or just enjoying the outdoors, Cozy Camp has come through.

Hello Anne and Dan!!!
We sure miss Cozy Camp! We are of course back to work, and soon back to school in our house!
We want you to know how much we enjoyed our stay with you, and how wonderful our lodging was as well. Of course the fishing goes without saying, even if we did not get out till after
10 am !!!!! eh Dan!?!
As promised I have attached some fish pics for your website!!! We would love to see them there, as we have told our family and friends about them, and that they would be put on here.
Dan you promised!!!!! hahah
Well, we sure hope to see ya next year again. We also want you to know that we will recommend our friends to take the trip up too!
Liana, Bill, Brandon and Amy
I would just like to say that we had a very nice time there and really enjoyed the fishing. You go out of your way to show special care for your people.
Thank you very much. ! Hope you can use a couple of picture's to show people how good fishing is at Cozy Camp. Attached is two pictures for your photo gallery. Dennis with a 42-inch 22-pound pike. Tin with a 45-inch 24-pound pike.

Good day friends. Got home from the 20 hr drive yesterday after dropping off my brother and brother-in-law. We all had a great time catching many big fish.
Could not have asked for better host, Anne and Sam, (Dan we are not sure about yet). Will show everyone the pics and I'm sure we'll be able to send you some customers in the future.
Keep us in your thoughts and E-mail me soon.
A friend, TIM JARVI
Dan / Anne,
Jordan and I just wanted to personally "thank you" for everything you two did for us during our stay. Our trip was educating and we certainly learned a lot.
We enjoyed our time and look forward to seeing you two again.
Take care and say hi to Sam for us.
Terry and Jordan
Hello Dan and Anne,
I want to say Thanks again for such a wonderful trip. You both are great hosts and my trip to Cozy Camp was by far the most fun of 8 trips for me to Canada.
So fun in fact that I want to come back. A couple of our group have cancelled out for next year to take other family vacations, but there are enough of us left that are sure we will find some replacements. We really enjoyed the cabin we had, especially the camp cook (my dad) who loved the kitchen. So if we can have the same cabin for next year as well as for the same week, we would like to book again for 6 people. Let me know if that cabin for that week is still available and if so, we will be back. That is, if you will have us??
Hi Dan & Anne,
I've been meaning to send this for awhile (we were there the first week of August). I just wanted to tell you guys again that we had a great time at Cozy Camp. Members of the Miller family have been coming to Canada fishing for over 40 years and many commented that this was their best trip ever. You guys were excellent hosts, had nice accommodations and equipment and gave reliable advice on where and how to catch fish. We didn't come away with a lot of trophy size fish, but we caught a lot of fish, ate a lot of fish that were mighty good and just had a great time. We don't come every year usually, but you can expect to hear from us again in a couple of years when we decide to come back up your way for another week of great fishing.
Our family spent a week at Cozy Camp in August on 2005. Dan, Ann, and Sam welcomed us and gave us the lowdown on all the "hot spots" for walleyes. After a 13 hour drive, we quickly unpacked and couldn't wait to try out our luck. We couldn't believe the walleye (and northerns) we caught in just a few hours! Boy, did they sure taste good! The next few days were in the 90's and fishing was just as good, with us catching our limit of walleyes everyday. Fishing sure isn't like this at home! We're lucky if we catch one walleye in a day...Besides the abundance of walleyes, the boys had fun with the northerns and Mike caught a 37" northern! (see pictures) Bryan caught a nice smallmouth bass, that we are waiting to get back from the taxidermy. Dan took time from his busy day and showed us some more "hot spots" and also a beach for the kids. It was a welcome relief from the heat! Our cabins were well equiped, clean and quait, with lots of space! In the middle of the week, Dan and Ann threw a cook out with all the walleyes that we could want. We loved our week so much, along with the great hospitality from Dan, Ann and Sam, that we've booked for next year. We can hardly wait! If you visit, make sure you save some walleyes for us! The Michael Wood family of Minnesota.
Dan & Anne,
WHAT A TRIP !!! A simple thank you doesn't describe our appreciation to you for a wonderful vacation trip.
You have always treated us like family and I don't think that would happen anywhere else.
Thanks again Dan and Anne. You are special people.

Subject: Your gracious hospitality
Thanks to both of you for your many acts of kindness and service to all the members of my "family"! Everyone had a great time
and caught lots of fish. I even had a 25 inch walleye, among others of various sizes, plus several northerns around 30+ inches.
It was a very memorable trip for me for many reasons, as everyone "looked out" for me.
Thanks for the attractive mug, as it will be a functional memento.
Best wishes always to you both, health & business wise.

"This was my first trip to Canada. Now I'm hooked. From the beautiful riverfront cottages to the great service. I'll be back each & every year!"
St. Louis, Missouri
"Our recent stay was as good as it gets. The accommodations we found clean, well stocked, and certainly in all ways met our needs. The boats and motors were in top condition and served us well. All of this was only surpassed by your co-operation, friendliness, and strong need to please us anyway you could, with always a smile on your faces! Thank you so much for making our stay one to remember!..."

"I have been on several big game hunts and Cozy Camp is my favorite. The accommodations are perfect, the hunting is fantastic, the fishing is awesome and the people are the best. I couldn't ask for a better hunt for my money."

"I can't believe the average size of the Walleye. Thank's so much for so much fun."
