We spent 3 nights at this gorgeous B&B. Our hosts Deanna and Alec made us feel like we were family. Our room (Cloud Forest) was very nicely appointed and had a spa-like bathroom. Everything was new and exceptionally clean. We started each day with a 3 course breakfast - different each day! Take your swimsuit to enjoy the hot tub.

We had one night here in the Serengeti room and loved it! It's new, well decorated, comfortable and each room has a balcony with lounge chairs. Also large screen tv, jacuzzi tub, fireplace,snacks and drinks provided. Amazing back yard with hot tub, firepit and Muskoka chairs. Beautiful landscaping! Terrific 3 course breakfast in the morning. Well worth trying out!

We are so pleased with our visit at the Explorer House B&B! The rooms were beautiful, there were plenty of gorgeous sitting areas and the breakfast was nothing short of amazing! All details of decoration, amenities, and hospitality made us feel pampered. We had a wonderful time!

We can't say enough wonderful things about our short but sweet stay at the Explorer House. Deanna and Alec were so helpful before we even got there! Deanna answered all my questions promptly and was able to accommodate both our late check in as well as a dietary issue. Our room was beautiful...super comfy bed, awesome bathroom with jacuzzi tub,... More

Great personalized service! House was very modern and clean with a beautiful landscape! Each room had its own theme, down to the very last detail. Breakfast was delicious, with homemade jams and fresh ingredients. Don't forget to pack a bathing suit for the hot tub! We wish we had stayed longer here. Will definitely visit again!

We had such a lovely time - NOTL is one of our favorite places to visit - And now we have a terrific B&B to visit when we come. The entire house is just beautiful, and it set up perfectly for B&B business. The Breakfasts were delicious, the host and hostess top-notch. Definitely hope to get back to stay here,... More

We enjoyed 5 nights in the Silk Road room at this very clean B&B. Our king room had two large easy chairs and a small accent table. All 3 guest rooms opened to a central guest area with a large shared keurig and a good selection of international coffees. Water/soda and snacks were provided as well as bottled water being... More

Beautiful home, with themed decorations from around the world, friendly hosts and a gourmet breakfast made for an extremely enjoyable experience and not what I thought a B&B would be like.I would recommend Explorer House to anyone looking for a different kind of B&B experience.
