This is an exquisite home located on the waters of Lake Simcoe with unique rooms full of antiques and interesting furnishings that all have a fascinating history associated with them. One of the few B&Bs in the area, Brasscranes-by-the-Lake is located just down the street from Casino Rama and downtown Orillia. What a hidden gem! We have stayed with them... More

If you like antiques you will like this place, for me I just found it extremely crowded with things and a musty smell everywhere. Room was nice but bed very uncomfortable. Overall I was extremely uncomfortable at this b&b and left quickly. Pool is nice but I did not use it. One of the most expensive b& b, not worth... More

Instead of staying with relatives on a recent trip to Orillia we decided to try a B&B that was close to my family and not far from the casino. We did not know what to expect and were a bit nervous at the prospect of staying in someone's house. Molly and Leslie warmly greeted us and showed us to our... More

Writing a review of this beautiful B&B "Brasscrane" on the shores of lake Simcoe is indeed an honour. On arrival at the door of our scheduled check in time , we were warmly greeted and welcomed with a broad and affectionate smile by the hostess who apart from putting us at ease made us feel like visiting family as opposed...

I was extremely disappointed this weekend. My wife and I were heading to Orillia for her birthday. Booked a room at the Brasscranes on Bookit.com, we arrived to find no answer at the B&B. There was a note on the door from another person that had arrived 4 hours earlier to find the same result. I left two messages on... More

I was looking for a quiet clean place away from the hustle and bustle of living in downtown toronto. I was pleasantly surpried. The hosts were super friendly. Made me feel like a part of their family. The deck was soo peaceful and breathtaking. I had a wonderful time I would return in an instant. A little piece of paradise.

The hosts are a delightfulfully interesting couple willing to share so many of their exciting world travelling experiences. The house is like being in a fabulous museum with the most wonderful artifacts. Each room has a theme that transports one to another place! Breakfast was like dining in a fine hotel! We will certainly go back there again if the... More

If you are looking for a short cottage experience, with the warmth of a family home, go to the Brasscranes B&B. The house is on the lake, with a large lawn and a deck as well as a pool. The smoke-free house is A/C and has a sauna. The owners have brought back original decorations and furniture from around the... More
