Ann and Larry were great hosts, even when I spilled red wine in the room! Very cordial, their home was spotless, beautifully decorated, very homey. Ann bakes her own breads, scones, homemade jams and jellies, Great breakfasts! B&B is only about 10 minutes East of town and very quiet. Sleeping rooms were large, beautiful, and comfortable. We even washed out... More

We had never spent a night in a bed & breakfast before our stay here, and Ann & Larry made us feel more than welcome! The atmosphere was calm, relaxing and inviting. We stayed in the Master Suite and could not believe how beautiful it was! Breakfast in the morning was to die for, and included a delicious variety of... More

Stayed here three nights while playing golf in a provinical tournment. Enjoyed returning here after golfing to meet with friends at the various areas where we could sit and hash over our shots. The property was very homey inside and out. Our room was very comfortable. We ordered our breakfast (from 5 choices) the night before and was always pleased... More

A great place to return to after participating in the provincial golf tournament at The Mountain golf course (which was a couple of minutes by car up the road). A very comfortable bed, delicious breakfast and relaxing atmosphere. Various areas to sit inside and outside to enjoy the property and gardens.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights at the end of our 11 day trip to Canada. It was the time of the trip where you're really feeling like you just want to get back home, yet I found I actually enjoyed this time the most. Why? Well Ann and Larry are a mine of information; we were... More

Our stay with Ann and Larry was a great experience. They made us feel as if we were at home. Breakfast was a very enjoyable time with home made yogurt fresh fruit and a wonderful basket of muffins and breads. Our main course was very tasty. Our room (Cornelia) was very comfortable with lots of storage and the view of... More

If you want the ultimate in a B&B, the Tulips and Thistle is for you! The master suite is awesome, deck off the bedroom, relaxing jacuzzi, fireplace etc...and the service and hospitality overwhelming! The best breakfasts ever, ad everything (even jams, yogurt, granola, biscuits) are all homemade. The stuffed french toast and the waffles were my favorites! Ann is an... More

We booked the master suite for 1 night in June. We were the only guests staying that night and were warmly welcomed by Larry and Ann. You really feel like you are staying at a friend's house for the evening. The room was large, very bright and well appointed. The jacuzzi tub in the master bath was a nice treat.... More

Although we stayed in the smallest room, the Cornelia room, there was plenty of storage for all our things (and we had a lot!) and the room itself was very spacious, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The large 4-piece bath, while not ensuite, was private (as we were the only guests that evening, it wasn't an issue that night). The... More
