“Great place to stay in Merrickville, Ontario”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2010

We stayed for one night during our trip to Merrickville to take in the studio tours last Sept 25 & 26.

Carol and Brian are very welcoming and made us very comfortable during our stay.

Our room has a king bed and very tastefully decorated in blue and white. Antique bedroom pieces are well place in the room without cluttering it. It has a roomy bathroom too. We had a very restful sleep at night.

The two- storey house, which is beautifully decorated, is located in a 7 acre land. There is a "wrap around " porch which is typical of the architecture of a farmhouse. Great view!!

Our breakfast was great....the french toast was yummy.

The mark of a caring host and hostess is when they send you off a some delicious muffins and kisses chocolate. Very thoughtful....little things that made us feel cherished.

Thank you Carol and Brian. Hope to see you in the near future.

Originally booked at Wolford House for 1 night and as the experience was so magnificent, decided to stay for 2. The house is beautiful, impeccably clean and superbly decorated and that's just the beginning. The hosts, Carol and Brian are such warm friendly people, it was like staying with friends. They were so accommodating and paid special attention to our specific needs, based solely on one little comment we made. Breakfast was a veritable feast, fresh fruit, home baked goods and local produce and jams, etc. We will definitely be returning, the price is more than reasonable and certainly does not reflect the quality of the accommodations, food and service we receive. We highly recommend this b&b.

I've been wanting to stay at the Wolford House for ages but they don't accept dogs, so I had to wait until one time that I didn't have my dog with me. I tsayed in the Queen room with a view over the fields to the Rideau Canal.

Breakfast was a beautiful thing: a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. I took a picture of it as it was so colorful. Home made fresh waffles, fresh fruit that tasted like real fruit even in January, really tasty local maple syrup, wonderful fresh coffee - everything was so fresh and inviting, including Carol who beamed at my enjoyment of it all..... heaven! Even though it might sound like a lot, it was a light but filling healthy breakfast Just perfect!

Brian and Carol are the perfect hosts for this custom built B&B which has charm oozing out everywhere. The carefully chosen linens, comfy hotel style bed and every accessory you need from fine soaps and lotions to bottled water, the butler's pantry for tea and coffee, including getting my forgotten toothbrush replacement.

The gardens must be spectacular in warmer times and Merrickville is a charming artsy and historic village. There's lots to see and do around the area, being part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site 'The Rideau Canal'. Merrickville makes an ideal midway point between the two ends of the Canal (from Kingston to Ottawa).

All in all, the Wolford House B&B and Merrickville should be on everyone's bucket list! You should go. But book now as they get really busy in the peak tourist season and only have three rooms - you can rent all three for a wonderful family or friend getaway.

We spent only one night at Wolford House Bed and Breakfast in Merrickville but plan to go back there often. Although we were staying there using a coupon that the proprieters had donated to an auction, we were treated as if we were family. The room was lovely; the house was magnificent. While we were there the house was filled with fantastic Christmas decorations very tastefully done. The breakfast was also great. We highly recommend it. The proprieters Brian and Carol made us feel completely at home.
