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.
