My husband and I stayed two nights at this beautiful Inn and it was a delight. We were upgraded to a larger room upon arrival, which was a nice treat. Our room was spacious, and included a seating area in the bay window. The owner, Kathy, has taken great care to ensure all the details are perfect. The common areas... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights here and enjoyed our time at this lovely house. Kathy made us feel very welcome and is an amazing Chef. Our breakfasts were delicious and we definitely loved the idea of the 2 different times for breakfast. Kathy serves one at 8:00 and the other at 9:00. There is a small fridge in... More

Granted the first time we stayed here was in 2001, we finally got around to returning and meeting the new owner (new to us, she has been there for 4 years!). The room was just as we remembered and we slept great!! Breakfast was outstanding and definitely worth getting up for. An excellent location, we will return sooner this time!

My husband and I just came home from a wonderful 2 night stay at this lovely B & B. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. From the first moment we walked in the door, we were greeted by Kathy, the owner, who is very charming and warm. She graciously provided information on the 128 year old house and on... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. We were floored. This wonderful house has everything: great location, great features, great breakfast, great staff. Walking distance to everything, charming churches around, the bells just add to the ambiance. The fantastic sitting room and reading room feature books, games, piano, anything you want. The stainglass at the top of... More

Husband and I stayed here when we attended an antique show in early February. The drive out was horrible and we were grateful to be able to retreat to our room relaxing by the gas fireplace for a couple of hours. We were in Theresa's room which is very roomy. Kathy has afternoon tea and cookies which we also enjoyed.... More

Wife and I stayed two nights. Kathy is a great host. Breakfasts are delicious and filling. Having cookies and tea in the parlour was a nice touch. Stayed in the Retreat Room, which was comfortable and quiet. Would definitely come again.

Nice antic place, the owner is so lovable and stay in a separate section. Comfort and quiet for travelers. Nice garden during summer. Nice homemade meals. Very clean and well maintained. Near downtown, seaway, restaurant and at the corner of the hospital.

We had the pleasure of spending our anniversary week-end back at Kathy's splendid B&B and were once again treated like royalty. Kathy had kindly left a complementary bottle of delicious wine in our room to help us celebrate our special day. We stayed in the Turret Room on the third floor with its amazing wrap around fireplace and cozy sitting... More

Great place, very nice building, well situated. Great breakfast. My room had a view on the church across the street. No need for a car once you are parked. Only issue is that it is quite noisy, like many of these old houses. So be ready, but I think it is a minor issue.

Thank you for your comments and we did have a bit of a noisy summer with restoration work going on at Sydenham Street United Church across the way. I'm sorry you were disturbed. For the most part, I am told the house is quiet and calm. I hope you will try again and next time, stay in Serenity, the quietest... More
