We stayed at the Inn on the Moraine for two nights in late November as we were attending a birthday party in nearby Bolton.
Hosts Diane and Stan were wonderful. They were warm and friendly and right away made us feel like we were family. Their lovely dog, Lacey, greeted us when we arrived and was so well behaved and gentle that you hardly knew she was there.
The Inn is set on 10 acres in the rural, rolling Caledon Hills north of Toronto, making for a lovely country getaway, away from the noise of the city. Our room was very quiet and peaceful and very dark at night. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The queen bed was quite comfortable and we slept well. There was lots of room in the walk-in closet for our stuff.
Because there is only one bathroom for the two available rooms, we paid the higher price so we could have exclusive use of the bathroom (they lock-off the other bedroom so there are no other guests). This arrangement also afforded us exclusive use of the huge, adjoining lounge, complete with huge, leather sectional couch, big screen TV and pool table (the room is probably referred to as a “greatroom” - so spacious with the cathedral ceiling!). Guests enjoy access to an extensive collection of DVDs. We brought our own drinks (there is a mini-fridge in the lounge) and snacks, and considering the cold, snowy weather we had, it was nice to stay in and relax with a movie.
The hot, home-cooked breakfast was plentiful and delicious. A real treat! We loved that our table by the window overlooked the back deck where so many species of birds came to feed just inches away on the window sill, in the adjacent trees, at the many feeders, and on the deck itself. One of the first snowstorms of the season left the surrounding evergreens heavy with snow and picture-postcard perfect so the view was quite beautiful.
Our only regret was that it was too cold and snowy to explore outside - it looked like a beautiful property. We will just have to come back in warmer weather.
