We spent a weekend there with another couple. The rooms were very nice. So was breakfast. Sadly, our hosts were not. Omnipresent and overly chatty, they never for a moment let us forget that we were in THEIR house. After scolding us repeatedly for not listening carefully to instructions on how to use the door lock, they told us they... More

We stayed at this lovely B&B recently in the Sarah Room . Very comfortable room. We had a friendly welcome from Janet & Darrell. They were both extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and information on the area's Darrell is a mine of information and we had long chats about the history of the house and about the area. Such care... More

You'd feel like you've known Darrell & Janet for a long time, even if it's just your first time at their B&B. Anything you need, they have something to offer or suggest and it always comes with a smile. Janet prepared a delightful fresh-cooked breakfast and Darrell, a walking 'Wikipedia', enlivened the conversation among us guests at the breakfast table.... More

We decided to try this historic home as a bed and breakfast for our Saturday night. They were so gracious and kind to us like, we were one of their family members. I... More

We had a great stay at the Joseph Lawrence House. Janet and Darrell were very helpful in suggesting places to visit and restaurants to enjoy - wonderful ambassadors for the Collingwood area. The house was beautiful, quiet and within walking distance to the downtown and local historic sites. Breakfast was beautifully presented and very delicious with fresh local ingredients. We... More

My husband and I took a mini vacation in Collingwood to attend the spa. We stayed at the Joseph Lawrence house: The house and hosts were amazing. The house is beautiful and spotless as well.. Our hosts were very friendly and breakfast was not only delicious but the conversation was wonderful. Will stay there again whenever we go to Collingwood.... More

I am a weary traveller of 30 years on the road. I had the opportunity of staying with Janet and Darrell Reeder in their exquisite B&B. If passion and purpose of the proprietors were the measurement for chosing one B&B from another I have no hesitation in stating that Joseph Lawrence House is No 1 on any travellers list of... More

Old Victorian house exquisitely restored and appropriately decorated. Ample, tasty, breakfasts -- more than we expected. Mild, fresh-roasted house-blend coffee. Pleasant, knowledgeable conversation and informed recommendations. Relaxed, unhurried atmosphere. Easy walk to historic downtown, maybe 5 blocks away. Beautiful, peaceful, carefully tended gardens. Best B&B we have ever stayed at!

My sister-in-law and I had a most relaxing stay at this beautifully appointed Victorian home. As the owner of a century property, I appreciated the time and effort that goes into the research and purchase of period light fixtures, furniture, glassware and decorating. The house is spotlessly clean and our room was extremely comfortable, including freshly ironed sheets on our... More

After speaking with Darrrell when I booked this B&B, I knew we were in for a good time. Upon arrival, we were shown our room, then invited to join the other guests and the hosts downstairs. We did, and enjoyed tea, sweets and conversation. The area has lots of choices for dinner and the B&B has a notebook filled with... More
