Susan Poole is your quintessential host of 40 Bay St. She's a delight! We had the feeling she'd stop at nothing to make our stay perfect. Our rooms were spotless, the bedding extremely comfortable and the breakfasts fresh and plentiful. The reputation for being Parry Sound's top B&B is well deserved. And the Bistro By The Bay restaurant, just a... More

My boyfriend and I just spent the weekend at the 40 Bay Street Bed and Breakfast and have left feeling refreshed and extremely satisfied with our weekend. Susan is a considerate and helpful host and an amazing cook. Her baked goods in particular were divine! We also appreciated the amenities available - a guest fridge, a 24 hour coffee station...

This was a lovely bed and breakfast. The room we stayed in was comfortable and Susan was helpful. The breakfast was delicious. The location was perfect for our needs. Whenever I'm in Parry Sound again I'll be staying at 40 Bay Street.

This summer we thought we would try Parry Sound during the crush of a long weekend. We booked 40 Bay Street several months in advance to ensure availability, but beyond that left the rest of the weekend to fate. We asked the owner Susan for suggestions for unique home decorating shops and she recommended locations that were off the main... More

Having travelled widely in Europe and N.America staying in B&Bs we were delighted to meet Susan in her lovely home where she made us feel like honoured members of her family. When she disclosed that she had come from Newfoundland many years ago, it was no surprise - our very best B&B experiences have been in that province, with the... More

In town for the Festival of the Sound - enjoyed a very comfortable room and good ensuite bathroom. Nice to have towels that are thick and large enough - so many hotels you need more than one! Friendly breakfast crowd and satisfying start for the day.

My stay at Susan's "40 Bay Street" was an absolute delight! The place is tastefully set up, rooms are immaculate(I've got a chance to take a peek at all three, while they were vacant). My "Garden room" was just lovely,- simple, beautifull and spotless, and had a private patio, where I enjoyed my wine and cheese in the evening. Breakfast... More

Susan's bed & breakfast was a very good choice: her house is very well situated if you want to discover the bay and its beaches or if you want to go to the Stockey Centre for a concert. Downtown is at walking distance. Susan is a perfect hostess: the house is perfectly clean and very comfortable and the breakfasts are... More
