Our second trip back and Shane was just as wonderful and accomodating as the first visit. Our group had the place to ourselves renting the rooms and felt like we were right at home, but being catered to. So relaxing and fun. And wonderfully comfortable beds and rooms. And the breakfasts....yummmm...

Dear Guest: A stay at Serenity Ranch should feel like being at home, but with all the luxury of being on vacation. It's a great place for small groups. We host wedding parties, family reunions and special interest groups, all of whom want to relax in the unique environment that is Serenity Ranch Bed & Breakfast. Now that the weather... More

Lovely comfortable, quaint B&B. We were invited to bring our daughter and her husband for complimentary wine and cheese so that we could spend some quality time with them as our guests. So special. Breakfast was to order and so delicious.

We stayed for one night and wish it was longer. Everything was wonderful. The breakfast perfect, the room excellent, Everything was done to perfection including a glass of wine while Shane made dinner reservations for us. We will be back.

Dear Guest: We can understand how you may feel that one night at Serenity Ranch is 'not enough'. We are always happy to help guests with advance restaurant reservations and trip planning, so that they may make the most of their stay. Alan is armed with brochures, magazines and flyers about the area. Although no-one has offered him any type... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Shane and Alan were most hospitable. Food was wonderful and quaint decor and collections were well suited tto the home. The weather was cold and miserable but the large room and ensuite warm and inviting with a fireplace and soft king bed (too soft for me). I would definately stay there again .

Dear Guest: We want everything to be perfect for our guests. We can understand your disappointment with the weather. However, we like to boast that when it is cold outside, guests are warm and toasty in the Ranch. We want to make our visitors extraordinarily comfortable. We have a pillow menu, as well as hypoallergenic bedding. Although most of our... More

Thank you so much Shane and Alan for making our stay so special. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home, be it with welcome drinks, area guidance or all of the little extras in the room to make our stay comfortable. Your hospitality is impeccable and it really does make the difference, even Shelby the... More

Dear guest: Every visit for each guest at Serenity Ranch should be memorable. We have tried to ensure that our younger guests have the special foods to make their stay a success. Our healthy childrens' menu does not include chicken fingers. Shelby, our Ranch Doodle, enjoys playing with the smallest of children. We are so glad that your enjoyed your... More

I was looking to spend the weekend in Hamilton and happened upon Serenity Ranch by chance. What a stellar experience! Tastefully appointed with amenities for all. Alan and Shane were fabulous hosts and I was instantly at ease and settled into welcomed glass of wine and sumptuous chicken soup. Fabulous breakfasts, warm rooms and exemplary hosts; Serenity Ranch quietly delivers... More

Dear guest: When you include the concept of serendipity with home-made chicken soup and wine in the same paragraph, then the outcome can only be favourable! The only other weapon in the Serenity Ranch winter arsenal is our (secret recipe) Spike Hot Chocolate. We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit and we hope that you will come back... More

This most amazing B&B was so graciously opened for a good friend and myself even though it was officially closed for the month of January. The atmosphere created by the owners is by far the very best I have experienced. I have recommended this B&B to many people and am looking forward to my next trip to Serenity Ranch.

Dear guest: Although Serenity Ranch 'never closes', we did shut down for planned renovations in January. At the time, we had piles of bricks in the driveway. The frigid weather made the movie 'Lost Horizon' (1937 - Ronald Coleman) look like a tropical paradise, in comparison. Then you called. We were more than happy to welcome you. Despite the building...

From the moment you walk in the door, Shane, Allan or Shelby make you feel right at home! Their attention to detail and focus on customer service is truly outstanding! Shane accommodated our early morning departures daily, for my daughters swim meet in Brantford, with delicious "to-go" healthy breakfasts. An added bonus after coming home tired several nights, were the... More

Dear guest: It's odd - we never really think of Ancaster/Hamilton as being an athletic hub. However we have noticed swimming, basketball and hockey participants arriving regularly throughout the winter. Actually, we are gearing up for the PanAm Games in the summer. Although it is a little early for cyclists, Serenity Ranch is a cycle approved accommodation with easy access... More

We were warmly welcomed by Shane, Alan and Shelby - the most superior doodle we have met for a long time. We were four adults and two babies. Nothing was too much trouble. The standard of service and the warmth of the reception was delightful. They treat you as if you are cherished old friends not strangers. Also a great... More

Dear Guest: Let's be realistic - in February, Ancaster does not have the allure of Aspen Colorado, or Mont Tremblant Quebec, or the French Alps. We just had an entire month when the temperature never rose above the freezing point. However, at Serenity Ranch, what we lack in scintillating apres ski we try to make up for with good old-fashioned... More

Not only were we offered wine the second we entered the house but within an hour we were enjoying the outdoor hot tub. Once finished in the hot tub we were offered spiked hot chocolate and went to relax on the comfiest bed we have ever felt. The food was great, the hospitality was amazing, the location was picturesque. Go... More

Dear guest: Thank you for your kind words. In the midst of a frigid winter, the phrase 'batten down the hatches' comes to mind. The Canadian Navy may have removed alcoholic supplements from THEIR ships, but we feel that a little nip of alcohol in OUR hot chocolate instantly uplifts the spirit. For guests who would rather not have that... More
