Perfectly located for a 10 minute bike ride to the ferry to Pelee Island, this 5 star B&B rivals the "best of the best" in any compendium of luxury accommodations. Creative attention to detail at every turn, no expense has been spared in the design, materials or decor of this beautiful and meticulously clean home. Each of the two bedrooms has a private entrance from the patio of this walk-out design and there is a common entrance from the patio through a sliding glass door. The spacious bedrooms are distinctly and tastefully decorated with large, flat screened T.V.s mounted on the walls opposite the queen sized beds. The bedrooms also feature a small table understatedly adorned by an artistic, cut flower arrangement and flanked by two comfortable chairs. The bookcase in the Green Pheasant Room housed a collection of books alphabetically ordered with titles by esteemed writers such as Margaret Atwood. The closet featured quality hangers, two plush bathrobes, two pairs of cosy slippers, extra pillows and blanket. The ensuite bathroom was elegantly appointed with an abundance of top quality white towels, face cloths and shower mat. Every bathroom amenity was at hand: hair dryer, soap, hand lotion, tissues and plush toilet paper. The spotless and extra large shower stall offered shampoo, conditioner and
body soap. An elegant kitchenette outside the bedrooms included crystal wine glasses, china teacups and mugs, tassimo machine and cold beverages. A full sized refrigerator was handy to store our wine, fruit and snacks. The living and dining area were tastefully decorated. An impressive book collection for a wide variety of interests in elegant cabinets, interesting artwork on the walls and comfortable seating for chatting or reading await guests in the living area. Breakfast was a delight to the eyes and palette. Joanne prepared a colourful fruit plate (no fewer than 5 varieties) and served yogurt on ice to start, then followed with a gluten free feast including eggs, bacon and a vegetable each day. Tea was served from a china teapot into a china mug. The table setting was elegant, including a lovely fresh flower arrangement, crisp white cloth napkins and spotless, shiny cutlery. The gardens were well kept and included a gorgeous sculpture and water feature. Maria was flawlessly professional and friendly--offering suggestions for restaurants, activities in town and information about the ferry and the island. She catered to our every request efficiently and effectively and we felt entirely at ease chatting with her as one does when getting to know a new friend. I rarely stay at B&Bs, preferring 5 star hotels, but Sycamore House was like our own private 5 star hotel.
