A Bed & Breakfast is unlike a commercial establishment, you will have a more personalized experience staying at a B&B. There are as many different types of B&Bs as people who run them. Some B&B’s prefer to go through a booking agency, we would prefer not to and here is why: when I speak directly with a prospective guest, or through direct email, we both have a sense of each other and I hope they will feel comfortable coming here as our guests as I will in having them in our home. I check to make sure that our B&B is in the right location for them, that we have dogs but they are kept away from guests unless they wish to meet them, that we are a non-smoking B&B but guests are welcome to smoke outside on our front covered porch and that guests are welcome to bring food and drinks with them, we have a refrigerator downstairs just for guest use but that we cannot have food and drinks in our bedrooms other than water, due to previous damage issues. Any guests who stay longer than two nights are welcome to bring take-out suppers to eat in our dining room or outside on our back porch overlooking our pool. We take into consideration a guest’s dietary needs when having direct contact with them. It is this direct contact that has been important to me in the over twenty-six years we have been ‘doing’ this B&B which is not always possible when an initial booking is made through an agency.
And, we are open year-round. Winter, although not as busy as our summer months, is still a very beautiful time of the year to visit our area, X-country skiing, snowshoeing and believe it or not, people still hike the Bruce Trail in winter plus we have a wood-burning fire in which to put up your feet and relax with a good book.The peaceful silence of winter speaks volumes for itself.

Staying at a B&B is an experience which is chosen, either because of its location, its price range or because people enjoy the homey atmosphere of a home away from home. It has always been my hope that those who come to stay with us will experience the quiet, peacefulness of the country and leave taking some of that with them.
