We stayed 2 nights in January 2013 at the Little Island Lake Guest Suite. My husband and daughter wanted to get some snowmobiling in before the rain started ! They did get out and enjoy the trails which are close by for several hours our first day and a couple hours the next day.
The Suite is very comfortable and you feel very much at home. Cynithia was very welcoming and showed us around when we arrived - everything was explained very well. The suite has it's own entrance. You are given a code for the door lock when you arrive.
The living area is small, but cozy with a nice electric fireplace. Satellite TV with a built-in DVD player... they have movies and games for guests to use. The bathroom is roomy and modern, with lots of extras - including a soft robe for each of us!. The queen bed is very comfortable. I found the electric baseboard heat a little hard to get used to - but it worked fine. Chelsea said the sofa bed was comfortable also.
I purchased the Wi-Fi ($10/night). It worked great.
No complaints at all !
If you need anything, there is a doorbell you ring and they are right there to help you, with a smile. :)
Breakfasts were wonderful. First morning we had a yummy whole grain fresh loaf of bread with jams, a yoghurt and fruit fruit dish and a poached egg with ham. Orange juice and coffee. The second morning was fruit crepes with real maple syrup and yoghurt and a poached egg with ham. Very yummy food - and again, Cynithia was very accomodating to meet our schedule. The food was very tasty and healthy!
We brought food to make easy lunches and one dinner. Everything you need is supplied. We also went to the Granite Restaurant in Bancroft (< 5 minutes). It was very good.
Quiet road out front - we went for a walk (in sprinkling rain) one day. The lake is steps away and would be wonderful in the summer. Would be great in the winter also, once it is froze.
Overall, I would highly recommend this Guest Suite (it really is more of a little apartment/suite) than a true B&B.. You can hear activities in the main house - but nothing that would keep me away in the future. Loved it and will be back!
Linda, Rob & Chelsea.
