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

Had a relaxing and enjoyable time this weekend at the Moose B&B. The rooms were exceptionally clean with a super comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Sitting on the deck watching the boats go by was relaxing plus, plus, plus. Beyond expectations was having a fantastic breakfast on the deck overlooking the water. Would definitely recommend the Moose B&B.

We just got home from the most relaxing and enjoyable time away without kids at the Moose B&B. Absolutely everything was excellent and the Johnson family made us feel very welcome. My favourite memories are the quiet time on the dock and the sumptuous eggs Benedict for breakfast.

Let me start off by saying: all the positive reviews that I read about the Moose B&B on TripAdvisor couldn’t have been truer! My family and I (the five of us) had a wonderful time during our stay! We rented out all three rooms for two nights during the Easter weekend. The rooms were super clean, modern and I loved... More

We had a wonderful stay at The Moose in Dorset. Hosts Debi and Kel were very welcoming and their dog Rolo was a great little character. We stayed in the Lily suite which was very comfortable with a lovely big bathroom. The house itself is beautifully appointed and in such a peaceful setting, it was wonderful to not hear any... More

Debbie greeted us warmly and things got better from there! Our suite was fabulous. We could see our cottage from the living room! Plus the suite was immaculate and decorated with a cozy country theme. After a great night's sleep, Debbie prepared a delicious feast for breakfast!! Then we were on our way for the day.
