“One of the best B&Bs in the Province”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We've stayed at the Fairy Bay Guest House on at least five occasions now -most recently the weekend of July 26th and have never been disappointed.
The accomodations are superb; breakfasts were tasty and the swimming is second to none.The hosts are very accomodating providing us on each occasion with terrific recommendations for restaurants in Huntsville.
We would highly recommend it for couples and families.

Absolutely fantastic place to stay! Facilities were basically "top-knotch". It is a beautiful place and has been laid out and decorated very well, as a B & B. John and Christine were wonderfully accommodating and provided fantastic homemade breakfasts! Besides have a lovely spacious room, there was a guest kitchen, 2 sitting areas, and other extra amenities; games, books, piano, kayaks, bbq, sandy beach..... Have no hesitation in recommending Fairy Bay Guest House to anyone. Wonderful stay!

Family of three (9 year old) enjoyed our short stay at the Fairy Bay Guest House. We felt like we were in a postcard from the moment we arrived: beautiful guest house, rooms with lake views, 2 common sitting areas inside the house, great grounds with a real sand beach & shallow water entry, kayaks, canoes, lovely rooms, evening campfire/smores and excellent breakfast. We felt like we were staying at a resort, but with only a few guestrooms.

Room Tip: Although there was no swimming pool, Fairy Bay was better than any pool could be.

The hosts, John and Christine were extremely accommodating. The inn is on a lovely lake. Canoes and kayaks are available for use, as are a couple of bikes. Breakfast was homemade, delicious, and quite generous in size. The guest house is immaculate, and beds are comfortable. They even met the needs of my mother, who sleeps in recliner chair.

Went there over the long weekend and have absolutely no complaints about the place. It's lovely and clean. The owners were nice and friendly and even taught my 3 year old to fish from the jetty as well as roast s'mores at the bonfire. Needless to say she didn't want to go home. Overall a marvelous experience.

I stayed here on the July 1st long weekend and really enjoyed my stay. Originally I had planned to book at the Deerhurst resort nearby but decided against its impersonal feel. Fairy bay was awesome.. the owners were extremely friendly and very attentive. The rooms were A+ extremely clean and comfortable... the food was excellent. No complaints here.

Room Tip: they are all good rooms from what I can tell.

So my kitchen was being done and my 2 daughters and my 4 grandkids came. To keep them safe while the counter was being done my husband got us a night at Fairy Bay. It was wonderful. The grandkids loved the beach and the rooms were wonderful! The views from our rooms were incredible. We would go back maybe next time just my husband and I. Breakfast was perfect for the kids. I highly recommend this B&B to family and friends.
