“Perfect weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We have been to Fork in the Trail last March for the first time. We loved it so much that we decided to go back this summer. What a lovely stay! The perfect weather and the nice pool were such a nice treat! Tricia, Doug, and Buster (their cute Labrador) made us feel at home. Tricia is a great cook, so she prepared a well-balanced breakfast for all of us, which was healthy and delicious. Our bedroom was roomy and cozy with an adorable balcony facing the gorgeous landscape, which made the balcony the perfect spot for cheese and wine in our last evening there. When checking out, don't forgot to buy Doug's maple syrup. You won't regret.

Doug and Tricia are superb hosts with a lovely home and especially wonderful skills to meet your needs without being over zealous. The home is set in a spacious landscape and when we were guests there was feet of snow. Great if you love the stuff as we do. Also not far from ski areas and good restaurants but definitely a rural setting. Our room was well decorated, very clean and very comfortable. The other rooms look equally inviting. Our hosts made it clear that their home was ours for the stay and library an other comfortable spots made it feel like home. The hot tub was wonderful as was there trusty black lab.

We truly enjoyed our stay. The place was like an oasis. The owners are amazing people. The breakfast was one of the best ones in my life. The house has a charm, so do the owners.There is a lot to do in the area: We enjoyed snowtubing at Horshoe Valley Resort, which is located five minutes drive from Forks in the Trail B.& B., the next day we hit the trails of cross country skiing at Hardwood. We would consider going back any time, I strongly recommend the place for familys and couples as well.

Tricia, Doug, and their lovely black lab, Buster, made us feel very welcome and gave us valuable tips from where to eat to places to visit. The hot tub was a great treat after a day skiing (and falling down). I really regret not having booked a massage though. Our weekend at the B&B was perfect and relaxing. We look forward to coming back on summer to enjoy the nice weather by their beautiful swimming pool.

We met up with friends for a reunion and had a wonderful stay over two nights. We had lots of room to hang out and chat in the spacious living room. Our hosts were most hospitable. We felt like teenagers, hanging out talking, while all our needs were being taken care of! Luxury.

What a fantastic afternoon, evening and morning. After putting our things in our room we headed outside, snowshoeing through the trails. We got a little lost, and a had a lot of fun! Once we found our way back it was straight to the hot tub where we soaked up the heat and the sunshine before heading in for tea & cookies. We had just enough time for a glass of wine (or two ;) before the cooking class began. Tricia & Doug were so welcoming and hospitable and have a beautiful B&B…all kinds of activities to enjoy and enough space to be alone. After a wonderful day & night we awoke to a delicious breakfast!
Wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Room Tip: I think there's a large room with a jacuzzi…didn't get it this time but will next time!

Tricia and Doug made us feel very welcomed into their home/B&B. It is a gorgeous building with a beautiful property. They were very helpful in recommending a restaurant in Orillia for us, Art stores to visit the following day and trails to hike. It is a great place to be if you like the outdoors. Tricia was even kind enough to open her yoga studio for just the two of us. It was fantastic. The breakfast was wonderful, the food delicious and the conversaton even better. I would recommend staying here and even trying one of their cooking classes (they sound like a lot of fun). Tricia and Doug are a very interesting and warm couple. We will definitely be back.
