“Well-deserved positive reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Warm reception to make you feel immediately at ease and at home. Beautiful house with some eclectic but beautiful decor, especially in the bedrooms and dining room. Excellent breakfast. Close to interesting sights. What more can you want from a B&B experience?

We took the Riverview suite for the bathtub. Nicely decorated set of rooms on the top level with a heated bathroom floor. The St James also looked very nice - a bit roomier and with fewer stairs. Breakfast was an amazing fruit cup followed by a perfectly crisp omelette. I only wish we could have been there on a weekend to eat at their Bistro.

Morristown is sleepy in an agreeable way, but a short drive from Upper Canada village. UCV is worth a journey, even more so now with a new section brilliantly commemorating the battle of Crysler Farm in 1813 during the War of 1812.

We are just home from a weekend getaway in Morrisburg– afternoon theatre at Upper Canada Playhouse and a simply delightful overnight stay at Russell Manor B&B. Hosts Michael and Ron welcomed us warmly into their large 1870 house that they have lovingly and painstakingly renovated into a Victorian-style home with all the modern conveniences. Decorator Michael’s attention to detail, the luxurious curtains and bedding, the wall treatments, interesting art work, the wonderful mix of antiques & the whimsical, all make this a very special place. While the home is elegant and formal, there is nothing pretentious about Michael & Ron, whose casual and friendly welcome made us feel very comfortable indeed. We enjoyed our stay in the pretty St. James suite where thoughtful touches abounded, from the wine glasses and corkscrew to the cozy throw folded over the arm of the sofa.
Complementing our lovely venue, both house and glorious garden, was the outstanding food prepared by Ron. Breakfast was both visually beautiful and extraordinarily good – homemade scones, fresh fruit salad and a scrumptious spinach & mushroom omelet. During the summer and holiday seasons, our hosts also serve dinner on Friday & Saturday evenings, and very luckily for us, we were able to “dine in” at the Manor Bistro, enjoying a delicious three-course dinner. All in all, it was a wonderful stay.

Michael and Ron are gracious hosts who made our stay a wonderful experience. The house is amazing! What looks to be wallpaper at first glance is all done with paint and faux finishes. Out of this world...great food, too!!

Our stay at the Russell Manor was amazing. The attention to details is exceptional. Each room in the common area is unique and an experience in its own right. I'm not sure if they have names but I referred to them as the cream room, the library, the red room and the gold room. Each of them with its own set of intriguing 'nicknacks' and lush furniture.

The suites are luxurious and impeccable. As a former meeting planner, I've stayed in many upscale hotels and I always find something to criticize in the room. A baseboard might be scuffed, the bathroom tiling damaged, the wallpaper coming off in a corner. There was nothing wrong with our room. Everything was perfect. And the bed......like sleeping on a cloud.

Make time for dinner in your schedule, Both dinner and breakfast were filled with wonderful flavours that blended so well together. The service was also wonderful. There is a fine line between someone hovering and someone knowing exactly when to come out and take your plate or serve you another glass of wine. Timing was excellent.

And most of all, Mike and Ron are outstanding hosts. They somehow manage to be very professional while being friendly at the same time. We got a tour of the kitchen before leaving and found out a bit of the history behind what makes the Russell Manor what it is now. All fascinating.

Mike and Ron, I'm sure you are very proud of this labour of love, and so should you. Chapeau!

Danielle & Caleb

Room Tip: All rooms are suites and beautiful in their own right. The Riverview room has a 2 place bath.

We couldn't believe what a gem we'd found here in Russell Manor. Ron & Michael are the most wonderful guys who just made our stay so relaxing. Ron's breakfasts are extremely well thought out and so beautifully cooked and presented!! Michael's talent for interior design is obvious in every room of their home -just beautiful!! Thank you both of you for a wonderful stay!

My Mother and I stayed at Russell Manor for three nights while in Canada for a family reunion. We were treated like Queens! The suite, the food, the service, the wine, the ambiance! Everything about our stay was superb! A step back in time with all the comforts of today. Ron and Michael have done a wonderful job in every catagory. We felt totally at home immediately and are already planning on returning. Our hosts personalities were the perfect blend for a splendid stay in truely amazing surroundings. Did I mention the food and service? We can't wait to return. Did I mention the food and service......

Room Tip: We stayed in the Riverview Suite, 3rd floor. Spacious, quiet, wonderful view!
