“So relaxing and enjoyable - one night felt like 3 nights of rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

My husband and I stayed at this B&B and we enjoyed it thoroughly. It was located in a wonderful spot on the harbour and a great location for nice scenic walks and small shops with a great view and a nice breeze off the bay. We stayed in the retreat room which was lovely with a large king size bed and an amazing washroom. The Inn was very clean and the bed comfortable with good quality bedding and lots of pillows.

Susan, the owner was enjoyable, friendly and warm but always professional and respectful of your privacy. What is nice about her B&B is that it is set up as an Inn and the use of the public areas (living room and dining room) was always an option. It was not like staying inside someones house and sharing the space that they use for their family. The home is very old and the walls are made with plaster so sound did not travel between the public areas to the room and between rooms which provided more privacy and rest.

Breakfast was incredible and the table set beautifully in the sun room. What a way to start the day. I suggest the amazing homemade granola.

The only concern for some people may be the train that runs right through the area day and night (not too much at night). Coming from a rail family we found the sound of the trains and their whistle was part of the experience for us.

We plan to go back again. The B&B experience was amazing and Parry Sound is a beautiful small town with a great activities and site seeing. There are boat tours of the islands and a very good concert line.

We would highly recommend the 40 Bay St Inn to anyone. Don't be fooled by the simple decor on the outside. This is a gem.

Great house and location as well as a charming hostess. It's within walking distance of the cruise boats and restaurants. Bedroom and shower were immaculately kept and breakfast one of the best I have ever had. Only con is the proximity of the railway.

The fact that we have stayed at 40 Bay Street at least 20 nights over the past five years speaks for itself. The location is ideal for walking to the Stockey Centre, or down to the shore, or even up to the shopping area of Parry Sound. The rooms and service provided by Susan cannot be beat. And the breakfasts are wonderful. There is no doubt that whenever we return to Parry Sound, 40 Bay Street is where we will stay!

This is our second summer trip to Parry Sound and a repeat stay at 40 Bay Street. Another great experience! Comfortable beds, clean and very inviting not to meniton the wonderful breakfast the next morning. We are back in Parry Sound four weeks later as I type this reveiw and my only dissapointment is 40 Bay had No Vacancy for this date. I will make sure I book early next year!

Have now stayed here 3 times, each time in a different room-- there are only 3 bedrooms so I've experienced them all and they're all as lovely as each other, though quite different. Each is very nicely decorated, has lovely bathroom and comfortable beds. The setting is gorgeous, over the road from the lake, boats etc, just a short stroll to the Stockey Centre, where the concerts for the Festival of the Sound are held and also a short stroll up to the shops, organic store etc. Susan the hostess does wonderful breakfasts and is one of the kindest, most thoughtful people you'll ever meet, a great character as well and now a kind of friend. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else !

This is a surprising gem in Parry Sound. It's within walking distance of anything you might want to see in town. My husband and I stayed in the Retreat Room. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and we liked that we could choose our own pillows. Susan goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. If you're a light sleeper, you may hear the trains passing by (obviously nothing to do with the B&B!).
