“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We recently stayed at Bells and Whistles (August 2013) and had a wonderful time! The owners are warm, knowledgeable and make outstanding breakfasts. They can also provide a pass for Sandbanks! Our kids were in heaven with the playground, many kids books, pool, dogs and chickens - and we were too. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, the location is good because everything is a short drive away. We would definitely go back.

I will echo a lot of the positive reviews already left. Deb and Bill were great hosts and their family inn has everything you need if you are visiting with kids. Our 17 month old daughter had a great time: the food, the pool, the toys, the other kids, the chickens, the ducks, the dogs, the books, the yard, you name it! This was the first time for us travelling with our wee one and it couldn't have been more successful thanks to all the amenities and comfort at Bells and Whistles. Thanks!

Oh yeah, and Deb is an AMAZING cook!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rejoice Suite

Debbie gave us some great tips that were suited to our particular interests and the weather, including a visit to the Del Gatto Estates winery. Bill showed us around the hens that lay the eggs that go into your breakfast. Home made granola was to die for. If you hit a rainy day, lots of DVDs are available for a movie night. We had a great stay. Book a large room if you can for maximum comfort.

Room Tip: Families should book larger rooms if they are available.

A wonderful stay ! Very friendly hosts. Delicious home cooked breakfast (I loved the home-made granola, my daughters loved the fresh fruit, muffins, scones). Debby and Bill have provided lots of options for kids to have fun from indoor toys, games and books in the living room to an outdoor sandbox and playhouse, a swing set, a pool, not to mention the fun of seeing the chickens, ducks, dogs, and the neighbours sheep, horses and donkey! My 2 young daughters adored their stay. Thanks to our hosts suggestions, we took the girls to a nice mini-putt and a wonderful park in Wellington before spending the afternoon at Sandbanks. A charming farmhouse, close to amenities, kind and helpful hosts. Happy kids and nice memories - we hope to return!

We had a great time at Bells and Whistles Family inn. Debby, Bill and Lise are amazing they go out of there way to make sure you have everything you need to have a great time! Bill and Debby made a fire to roast marshmallows for everyone.The kids had a great time swimming in the pool, pet the chickens and played with there dogs.. This place is very clean and the breakfast are excellent! Lise your home made muffins are out of this world... so good! What is perfect about this place is when you come back from the beach, you are not stuck in a room with noting to do.. there you can relax outside in the backyard and you can also use there BBQ. Thank you Debby, Bill and Lise for the great hospitality! Will be back for sure!

Just wanted to write another quick review of the litte gem we have discovered in Picton area. This June we had our thrid stay at Bells and Whistles Family Inn. As usual, it was marvelous! Eventhough the weather didn't cooperate with us, with all the animals, playground equipment, sandbox, and indoor toys our 2 year old daughter had plenty of fun and enough to keep her happy and busy the entire weekend. As usual, with all the baby/toddler equipment waiting for us on our arrival, it felt just like being at home (and saves a lot of hassle on packing). Lise and family were extremely welcoming (and we love that they offer babysitting) and breakfast was filling and delicious again this year. Thanks for a wonderful stay and looking forward to next year, we feel like part of the familly!!!
