5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Thanks to my sister and FB we found Piebird Bed & Breakfast. The website made me laugh out loud at the photos of their sustainable vegetable/herb gardens, rescued pets, delicious looking vegan meals, picnics & concerts, comical videos made with a 'Goat' cam, courses on healing with herbs, sustainable organic gardening methods, and even Yurt building! I promptly ordered their heirloom vegetable seeds and t-shirts. After attending the 'Healing with Herbs' workshop as well as the 'Sustainable Gardening Workshop', I can truly say that the owners & hosts, Sherry Milford and Jan Roberts are the real deal. They exude a gentle, down to earth demeanour, quick to laugh and make you feel at home. The food was creative,simple, fresh from the garden and delicious. The rooms were cozy with fluffy warm duvets and personal touches. Arrive a stranger and leave feeling connected to something special. We cannot wait to go back for a concert, paddle the canoe, bike the country roads or try out the hand built cedar sauna. Whatever you do you will feel restored, renewed and replenished at Piebird!

Room Tip: The two bedroom cottage is quiet, private, and very comfortably appointed. The wood stove was heart...

My husband brought our little family here as a surprise for my birthday & our anniversary. Our toddler was with us & was delighted with the space to wander & discover the creatures...esp the goats! We live in town 25 min away & were in the midst of a thick heatwave, yet when we arrived at the Piebird, the air was fresh, breezy & all of our energy came rushing back! Meal was heavenly, btw. Had gorgeous sleep in the little cottage, & a pretty breakfast that Sherri carried over from the main house...she jogged back just as a great thunderstorm showed up & provided a beautiful show for us as we ate even more of PB's delicious food by the picture window. A beautiful way to open our new year of marriage! Had a bit of time to wander the property & explore the main house (full of fresh charm & yummy aromas!) before we had to leave for our next destination. Will be returning again this year.

Room Tip: If you have kids, the cottage is a nice option with a bit more room for them to run around -- the co...

This B&B is like no other. So peaceful, natural and brimming with happiness. The owners Sherry & Yan glow with joy, love and from a life of eating so close to the earth. They are professional and cheery and are generous at sharing their love of life and of healthy living. The food is absolutely pure, beautiful and delicious. The atmosphere radiates with positive energy. My favorite part was talking with these passionate owners who made us feel so welcome. A close second was hanging out with the goats, chicken and cat companions. i would totally recommend this place to anyone who longs to get back to their natural roots and who craves a healthy getaway.

Room Tip: The private rate means you get the whole place to yourself at night! We were pleasantly surprised to...

I visited the B & B for my 25th birthday with my boyfriend. I could not have asked for a more perfect way to spend my special day. We were lucky enough to enjoy Sherry's cooking for both breakfast and dinner. The food was fresh, tasty, and creative. We loved our mixed green salad with all the greens from the on site organic garden. We spent our day biking down country roades, canoeing along the river and bathing down by the dock at the river and enjoying an afternoon picnic. The atmosphere is indescribable and the hosts could not be any more welcoming; they truly make you feel at home. As a Holistic Nutritionist who is hoping to open a similar experience in Northern Ontario, I found this weekend to be so inspiring. I cannot say enough good things about the B & B. - Lacey and Ryan

If you are looking for an experience like no other, then Piebird is definitely the place to go. You are welcomed with a warm embrace both literally and figuratively. The atmosphere is charming and relaxed. The grounds are beautiful. The silence and peacefulness that surrounds you is something to behold. Sherry and Yan are thrilled to have guests to share their home with and spoil us with fabulous homegrown foods. Nothing about this place is formal, it's truly like being home with family.

Your heart cannot help but grow when you visit the Piebird! Sherry and Yan will instantly make you feel like dear friends as soon as you set foot on Piebird property. I confess that part of the reason that we keep going back to the Piebird is because we are looking for an excuse to hang out with Sherry & Yan.

Our visit started with a garden tour (Sherry & Yan are both so knowledgeable when it comes to growing your own food and preparing it). We had a delicious dinner for two that consisted of wraps filled with greens, grains, and tofu and a salad that was an explosion of taste. After dinner we headed outside to visit the goats and the chickens and for a tour of the cabin that they are working hard to finish (it is gorgeous and would be a wonderful place to take your family or if you like more privacy than a b&b offers). We caught up with Sherry while drinking tea and eating rhubarb upside-down cake. Sherry really needs to write her own cookbook! We were then off to bed and before we knew it, it was morning. I loved looking out the window to see Yan planting and the chickens flying around. We chose to hang out with Sherry and Yan while Sherry made us pancakes for breakfast. We spent part of the morning brushing the goats and sitting outdoors. Before we knew it, it was time to head back home. We'll definately be looking for another excuse to visit the Piebird soon (the Piebird picnic perhaps). If you love composting toilets, old bathtubs, tea rooms, goats, vegan cooking, open minds and feeling like you are at home this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Every room is great!

I can't begin to recommend Piebird enough. Everyone I know has heard me gush and gush about how incredible this place is. I've had the pleasure of visiting this charming, rustic, beautiful home probably 5 or 6 times in the last few years and Sherry and Yan never cease to amaze me. They are always so warm, welcoming and happy to share everything - fresh harvests of fruit and veggies, incredible baked goods and home cooked meals, fabulous herbal teas, their canoes, bikes, tours of the garden and grounds, great stories, a hearty laugh and innovative new projects. The rooms are all exceptionally comfortable, clean and decorated with masterful attention to detail, authenticity and a conscientious lifestyle. The huge guest bathroom and claw foot bathtub are suburb and the guest parlor has a cozy fireplace and stacks of books, vintage board games and curiosities. The goats provide hours of entertainment and there are two lovely cats who occasionally find their way to your lap. I could pass days reading on the glorious wrap around porch and the Nipissing area is lovely any time of year. Sherry also offers various healthy cooking/canning, etc. workshops in her fabulous teaching kitchen and farm stay options are available to learn about sustainability and joys of a growing your own food. Sherry and Yan will feel like friends immediately and you'll want to come back again and again.
