“Perfect!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I were in the area for the Fall colours at the beginning of October and choose 40 Bay Street as it was close to the Marina (and we planned to do the boat cruise) and it had great reviews. We have stayed in several B&Bs over the years and enjoy the escape with an at home feeling. It was easy to see why this spot has such great reviews! Our room was spacious, comfortable and private. We had the garden room (which does not look out onto the lake, but has a great back deck which we enjoyed). Susan was an awesome hostess, with great advice on where to eat and what to do. Breakfasts were inspirational (the eggs with garden tomatoes and herbs was my favorite. We would definitely stay here again!

Dear cvdahe
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the breakfast made with tomatoes from our garden. It was great to see people complete the many hikes you can access right in town, as well as the boat cruise.
Each of our rooms have their own unique features, and only The Bay Room has a direct view of the water. We always encourage people to make use if the two sun porches that provide waterfront views, as well as the outdoor seating areas at the front of the house if they are staying in one of the other rooms.
We hope to see you again!

We stayed with Susan for three nights on a circumnavigation of Georgian Bay. This is an outstanding place. She is very welcoming, the breakfasts great, and the rooms unusually spacious, nicely furnished, and comfortable. Great location right in the harbor. If Perry Sound is your destination, this is THE place to stay.

Dear William D
Thank you for choosing us to stay on your journey around Georgian Bay. We work hard to make our rooms feel like a home-away-from-home for our guests - it's important especially when you are spending several nights in one place!

We stayed with Susan for 2 nights at the beginning of October as we were in the Parry Sound area to see the Fall Colours. Susan was very welcoming and her B&B was very comfortable. Breakfast was a treat each morning as was the company of the other guests. Great location for taking the Boat Cruise (fantastic, BTW), as well as walking into Town and good restaurants. Would definitely recommend 40 Bay Street B&B!

Dear MartyK - I am glad you were able to get a good look at the fall colours during your visit to Parry Sound. We create our breakfasts with a great deal of care; making our bread and muffins here are the B&B, using fresh produce and herbs from our gardens, and offering a variety of dishes so that guests have the ability to pick and choose a breakfast that appeals to them. We hope that we see you and your wife again in the future!

My wife and I have shared some wonderful upscale hotel and cruise ship accommodations in some rather nice cities here and abroad over the years.
Who would have guessed that a B & B in Parry Sound would provide us with an experience that ranks as one of our most warmly remembered stays? Not us, certainly.
But 40 Bay Street Bed and Breakfast seems to have all the special qualities mixed in just the right proportions to leave guests feeling genuinely welcome and looked after.
From initial inquiry to our stay (5 of us in three unique rooms) to her post-visit follow-up Susan has been nothing less than professional, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly.
We will return next year for a longer stay, without doubt.

We spent 2 nights at 40 Bay Street Bed and Breakfast for our Anniversary. I had never been to a bed and breakfast before and did not know what to expect. The room had an ensuite washroom and king size bed. Breakfast was wonderful both mornings and it was a treat to meet new people.
Susan was a wonderful host and gave us good advise on where to eat and go for Parry Sound activities. I would recommend this to my family and friends.

Room Tip: Back room does not face the waterfront.

Dear WPickles:
We are so glad you had the opportunity to find out what a great option bed and breakfasts are for a stay - and especially for celebrating special occasion. With en-suite baths and king-sized beds, televisions and WiFi, most B&Bs offer the same level of amenities of a hotel -but definitely a much better breakfast, and the ability to meet people from all over the world at one table. We wish many more happy anniversaries!

It felt like staying at my grandmother's place. Susan welcomed us and gave us a tour of a house followed by an informative "Where to go and what to do" intro. Breakfast was all home made and freshly baked. House is very well kept and Susan helped us to feel the place home away from home. Thinking of coming back in Winter.

A great welcome and had a wonderful stay. Breakfast was superb and Susan's information "pack" and advice enabled us to see Parry Sound at its best.
Would heartily recommend the delightful B&B to anyone!

We love the opportunity to help our guests get the most of out of staying in Parry Sound - even if they have been in the area before. To know you keep coming back when you live so far away certainly is a testament to how great it is - and the variety of things that there are to do.
