This B&B was a half way point for long drive to Quebec. We did not want our one year olds first road trip to be 8 hours. We were only able to stay for one night. The owners were very nice. The Blue Room was a good size for a playpen. The food was great. The house and view were... More

We enjoyed staying at the Saucy Willow Inn last week for two nights. Catherine and Chris are very welcoming and friendly hosts. The rooms are charming. A huge plus was the makeup mirror in our room. Ensuite bathroom very convenient. They were very accommodating for breakfast. Great that they have assorted teas and Keurig coffee available anytime....much appreciated. They also... More

My husband and I most recently spent a couple of nights at this most gorgeous, turn-of-the-century inn. As many others have stated eloquently before me, Katherine and Chris, the hosts, most definitely go out of their way to make your stay in their immaculate and character-filled home, incredibly enjoyable and relaxing. Breakfasts are quite simply phenomenal featuring freshly brewed delectable... More

Thank you. We do our very best to make our guests feel comfortable while here. You are right about the summer--it is absolutely beautiful here and the upper porch is a favourite spot for sipping wine (coffee/tea or whatever your beverage choice is). The best complement you can give us is the desire to return. We look forward to seeing... More

My wife and I, spent three days here, at the end of August and had an absolutely wonderful retreat. The location was fantastic...you simply walk out of the B&B and you are straight onto the lake. There is a little pedalling boat and 2 great kayaks you can use, as well as a canoe. The part of the lake associated... More

Family rented one of the cottages for an entire week. Great price and great service. Understand that it is a cottage, not the Taj Mahal but the scenery, location and price make it worthwhile. We had our 19 foot boat docked there all week . Quick easy access to Balsam Lake.

Catherine and Chris welcomed us upon our arrival. The golf weekend/birthday was spent on the shores of Balsam Lake. The 3 bedroom cottage was spacious and clean. If given the opportunity go travel back I wouldn't hesitate.

We have stayed in the cottages with our kids before (which was great) but we wanted to have a weekend all to ourselves - It was our anniversary after all. Our room was good. You don't get cable, but the TV with DVD was great as they have a variety of movies. Playing pool during the evening was fun. Property... More

The house is fairly outdated and could use some TLC. The washroom in particular was less than satisfactory, and the bedroom has seen better days. The breakfast was just "ok" in my personal opinion. I would not book here again.

Thank you for your comments. It is nice to see that you visited the Kawarthas Lakes area. Unfortunately I have no record of a someone named Matt staying at our Bed and Breakfast during that time.

Our family booked most of the rooms for a little getaway with our parents to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Chris and Kathy were very friendly and fun hosts.
