While missing some of the ambiance of some b&bs (this has more the feel of a small hotel) it is quite a lovely property with a lake, canoes, and paddleboats. The breakfasts are very good and filling. Our room had a leaky faucet in the Jacuzzi, but was otherwise nice. The owners are polite and efficient, and willing to go... More

We spent a weekend with family at the Guest House as we celebrated our daughter's wedding.The accommodations were great, the breakfast was great and John and Christine were great hosts. Because we rented the whole place for all of our guests, we were able to prepare for the wedding with hair and make-up, have pictures done on the grounds and... More

We had a great time at the Fairy Bay Guest House. The hosts John and Christine welcomed us warm and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and have own bathrooms. Maybe I don't have to mention that you will find everything perfectly tidy and clean. The guest house lies on a beautiful lake and offers a sandy beach with a... More

Just spent 2 nights at Fairy Bay Guest House and it beats any hotel accommodation nearby where we stayed in the past. Clean and comfortable, with John and Christine being such gracious hosts who offered a great breakfast to start off our day. We had a spacious bedroom with quiet surroundings where you can relax either on the deck or... More

We spent three nights at Fairy Bay Guest House and it was the perfect end to our holiday in the USA and Canada. John and Christine were great hosts and made us feel very much at home. We particularly enjoyed John's cooked breakfasts - blueberry pancakes one day, eggs Benedict the next. We also appreciated their tips on where to... More

If you are going up to explore Algonquin Park and are not a camper, this place is perfect. You avoid the extreme high prices of the resorts in the park and yet don't have to stay in a hotel chain. Add to that hosts that have thought of everything yet give you privacy and you have a winning combo. Gorgeous... More

From the moment you arrive, there is a feeling of "aaahhhh, this is the place to relax and enjoy the country"...being right on the lake offers many relaxing options: go for a swim, take out a paddle boat or just do some fishing from the dock...and at night, enjoy sitting around the fire pit down by the lake looking up...

We stayed for several nights at the guest house. But felt like it was a week. Jon and Christine made us feel like we were part of their home.And went out of their way to help us enjoy the area. Sitting on the dock with a book and cup of coffee, while watching the ducks or other activity around the... More

We stayed one night at FBGH and were very excited! The people (Jon & Christine) are such friendly and lovely and their house is little gem! The atmosphere was like in a family and we were offered taking a canoe and having a trip on the lake and afterwards barbecuing using the on-site gas grill stations. The breakfast was just... More

We stayed here in August for 5 nights, absolutely no complaints, Christine & John are great hosts in their beautiful guest house, great pancakes & bacon at breakfast, plenty activities by the lake if the weather provides. Great location, for exploring Muskoka, Huntsville is a good town with plenty good restaurants and shopping. Only downside was the weather...3 rainy days... More
