Love the combined century-old charm with newer construction in an idyllic locale on the narrows on Lake of Bays in the charming town of Dorset, a short distance to all amenities and local attractions...including the iconic lookout tower. The breakfasts are outstanding! Debi, the owner-host is a very warm, kind person who will make your stay quite pleasant.

Some very dear friends from the UK were paying a nostalgic visit to Canada. As a family they had spent their summers on Lake of Bays. They asked us about the Moose B & B. in Dorset where I live. While I had not stayed at the Moose, I had toured the premises and was totally impressed with the contemporary,... More

This place is beautifully decorated and has warm and friendly hosts. We traveled up into Algonquin Park for a birthday lunch and wandered around town. Shopping in Robinsons was fun too. The only thing I would change would be the size of the 2 smaller rooms -- which would be impossible, but they could call them rooms rather than the... More

Charming bed and breakfast. The hosts Debbie and Calvin made you feel right at home. Our room, although a little smaller than expected, was very clean and comfy. The bathroom was large with lots of great lighting. The breakfast, well I suggest you stay here and try for yourself. You will not be disappointed or hungry. Although it rained most... More

We had such a great stay at the Moose B&B! We visited on Labour Day weekend for our anniversary and we stayed in the Sage Suite. The room and bathroom were very clean, cozy and filled with cute little extras. There was a Keurig and a mini-fridge right outside the room for us to use. They have a gorgeous property... More

The weekend at the Moose B&B was a wonderful time. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Debi serves up an amazing breakfast, made to order, with a large menu variety that covers all the healthy options and also the best of the traditional comfort foods. Tina & Tullio

My recent overnight stay at The Moose could not have been better. Debi and Kelvin are exemplary hosts and her blueberry pancakes and homemade jams should not be missed! Eating breakfast out on their deck overlooking the lake is a great way to start the day. She generously upgraded my room-all 3 rooms are beautiful and bed was very comfy.... More

The Moose B&B is really tranquil and unique. The ambiance is undeniable. The owners Debbie and Kelvin are very accommodating in every way. The breakfast that Debbie prepared was over the top delicious. There is so much to do from boating, swimming, hot tubbing or just lazying around sunning on the dock. Great place for a romantic getaway. Anything you... More
