A Bed & Breakfast in Ontario is allowed three guest bedrooms, anything over that is considered an inn but times change. There are now different concepts as to what a bed and breakfast is all about, from renting out one room to a whole house. However, we are and have always been a traditional bed and breakfast. We have a website which we care about and through this we hope to give our guests a sense of ourselves as much as we may have of them prior to their arrival. We are happy to accept one night bookings as we feel that many times, one night is all people are looking for when coming into our area. We have a separate guest lounge, with a wood-burning fireplace in cooler months, our pool is open to guests in warmer months. Our guests are welcome to bring food and drinks with them and we provide a refrigerator downstairs for guest use but we ask that no food and drinks be taken to our bedrooms other than water, due to previous experiences we’ve had with damage issues. Situations arise, however, that affect my policy in running this very small business with guests who may not realize how a change in their last minute plans may affect our B&B. For example, people often book all three rooms well in advance for families attending weddings and who then find the dynamics at their end changes. We are sometimes asked for a cancellation to one of the rooms they have already booked. Thus, I trust you may understand how last minute changes and cancellations affect our B&B and other guests who may have wished to stay here on the date of your reservations with us and whom I will have already turned away. We will honour your dates needed here, we would ask that you please honour your commitment to us. Also FYI, we do not allow three people in one room, with the exception of babies sleeping in a Pack n’Play, which we provide for such guests. It is always our intention that we give the utmost respect to our guests who have stayed with us over the nearly twenty-eight years of our B&B adventure, in return, we ask that as host & hostess, this respect is given in return.
*Please note: Due to cataract surgery, it is likely I will be closing down for the months of November & December, 2018, reopening again mid-January, 2019.
Please note also that we are not part of Air B&B nor Booking.com
