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 and it is as important for our guests to feel they have a sense of us before staying here as we do of them, thus, direct contact with prospective guests is important to us. 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. Any guests who stay longer than two nights are welcome to bring take-out suppers to eat in our dining room at a reasonable hour or on our front or on our back porches. It has always been my mandate in running this bed & breakfast to share our home with others who may appreciate the peace and quiet of the country and that when they leave, they may take some of that peacefulness back into their own daily lives. We appreciate our repeat guests, for they almost feel like family returning to our home. It has been our privilege to accommodate guests from all over the world, Tasmania being the furthest and we thank the many guests who have stayed with us over the years.

Bruce Trail Hikers: This year we have had two sets of Bruce Trail hikers, hiking on foot from end to end thus needing Jock’s assistance in being delivered to and picked up from end to end of a day’s hiking. We would personally like to thank them for their kind generosity to the Youth Flight Canada Education Fund and specifically a donation made to the Freedom’s Wings programme for paraplegics learning how to glide.
Sandy Small Proudfoot is a later-in-life graduate of design from OCAD and works in textiles. Jock is a retired Air Canada pilot and glider pilot at York Soaring. We are ‘ parents ‘ to two lively Australian Shepherds, Annie & Megs.
