We stayed at the Walnut House, and we had a WONDERFUL stay. Gill is an amazing women, very welcoming, as her little Millie :) Its a little 5 min from the restaurants in Oakville, perfect location. Everything is clean, very quiet and calm in the House. Thanks for having us, Well be back soon :) Charlie and Isabelle

The house is one of the most interesting that I have ever encountered. It is built around a four hundred year oak tree. Indeed, the house won a design award. I walked one block from the house to the Lakeshore Drive where all of the shops and restaurants are in the historic part of town. It was just the perfect... More

With its central Oakville location and an incredible walk by the water just around the corner, this warm and welcoming home, with its scrumptious breakfast -- the owners make their own granola! -- spacious rooms, quaint interior, crisp sheets, soft beds, large windows, in-room washrooms and the best eggs this side of Lake Ontario, I would recommend this place over...

Stayed in Oakville on our way to visit Niagara Falls visiting from Thousand Oaks CA. The house is located right downtown so we could walk to shops and restaurants and the river and lake are right across the street. It took us 30 minutes to drive into Toronto. The house was designed by the owner's son and is very lovely,... More

I booked the Walnut House as I generally prefer a B&B over the bland hotel experience. The room was clean and tidy but the overall experience made me rethink my choice. If you are looking for someone to make the bed and room up or change the towels on a daily basis this is not the place. My little bottle... More

Spent an enjoyable 11 nights at Walnut House. Room was excellent, very clean, and had all that I needed, from lovely furniture, great bed, to cable tv and wireless internet. Food was great at breakfast, and the hostess, Gillian, was very friendly and people orientated, was happy to advise. This lady has all the experience and knowledge to run a... More

This B&B is well located both within Oakville and within the area. Within Oakville you are only a short walk from the main street that has a plentiful array of restaurants and shopping. Within the region you are (depending on traffic, of course) about 45 minutes from downtown Toronto or Hamilton and about a little more than an hour from... More

We stayed at Walnut House recently while visiting family. It was a really pleasant experience, a home from home. Gill really made us feel very welcome and always had a cheery word. Breakfast was just as we wanted. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had everything a traveller could need. It is a pleasant stroll into Oakville and the... More

Our first visit to Walnut House, on April 11th, will not be our last. An attractive house in a fantastic, residential location, we could walk easily to the downtown shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Forsythe Room on the upper floor. It is a beautifully decorated, clean and bright room with windows on three sides. Very private. Our hostess,... More

We stayed just one night, prior to flying back to the UK from Toronto. We wanted a homely B&B rather than an impersonal hotel or Inn and this was perfect. The bed was comfortable and the room well appointed and tastefully decorated. The full breakfast was excellent and the owner Gill was very kind.
