I was stuck in Dorset during a snowmobile expedition due to equipment failure. The Moose B&B was my saviour. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and did everything to make me feel comfortable and at home. The facilities were immaculate, bed comfortable, food excellent. I would strongly recommend The Moose B&B to anyone.

Debi and her husband have an incredible b&b. We also had the pleasure of meeting her daughter who was part of the b&b previously. What can i say,, great accommodations, relaxing atmosphere, and amazing hosts, throw in an incredible breakfast and you have the perfect getaway. We will be back, and actually booked our second visit later this year already

Great people, beautiful property and fantastic getaway from the buzz of the city! Breakfast was the highlight of our trip. Quality food and wide array of available options. This was my second visit and it was as amazing as the first. I definitely recommend it!

My fiancé and I spent two nights at The Moose last week thinking it would be an ideal base for us to see the magnificent fall colours. Nature put on a grand show for my Texan who has rarely seen Autumn like that. Debi and Calvin of The Moose definitely deserve all the accolades that I've read. My Love and... More

Having never stayed in a B & B, we are now officially spoiled for all future experiences. Our visit at The Moose was an exceptional. The charm of the early 1900's home, the luxury of the Birch Suite, and the amazing breakfasts all are captivating. Add that to the beautiful grounds, and you have a winning combination. Our hosts could... More

We were truly blessed to get the last available room in this beautiful B&B. From check in to check out, the service was beyond our expectations. The friendliness of Debi, Calvin, and Melody made our first B&B experience so welcoming and enjoyable. Set on a beautiful piece of property, The Moose backs right onto the water and is only steps...

I am very happy that I chose the Birch Suite at The Moose. The spacious, lovely suite with it's own balcony overlooking the yard and waterfront felt like a sanctuary. I celebrated a milestone birthday while in residence at The Moose and Debi made sure I felt special with her kindness and thoughtful gift. The breakfasts are legendary: beautifully prepared... More

We were extremely lucky to find the Moose B&B. It had everything we were looking for and much much more. The property is so beautiful with a big yard and its own deck on a lake. We went for a short hike to the Dorcet lookout, the rest of time we just stayed in the yard and the deck reading,... More

Our first time at a B&B and couldn't have chosen better. Lovely accommodation, absolutely superb breakfasts and very charming and friendly hosts. Enjoyed our comfortable room (very comfy bed) and spacious private bathroom. Location was great for us and could walk very easily to anything in the village. Loved enjoying a relaxing glass of wine on the dock deck while... More

From the moment we arrived the hospitality was unlike any other I have experienced. We had two days of complete relaxation. The Johnson family was very accommodating and the B & B itself was exquisite. The Birch Suite was super luxurious and I'm still dreaming about Debi's yummy blueberry muffins. The little town of Dorset was lovely to stroll through,... More
