“A Warm Welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We found the Gables B & B to completely fill our needs for lodging. As we were attending a wedding in the area, Lois offered a drive there and info on taxi service for our return. From the comfy bed to the bountiful breakfast...we certainly were pleased with our stay. Maybe next time we'll check out the Scandinavian Spa in Collingwood to pair up with the relaxing accommodation at the Gables! Thanks to Lois and Bill who make B & B's so popular.

Gables B&B was a wonderful experience and everything you could ask for. Bill and Lois are very welcoming, warm, and really make an effort to make sure your stay is a memorable one. I'm pretty picky about food and usually breakfasts are good at B&B's but this one was exceptional. I was there on my motorcycle and it was especially nice to have a garage to use to put it in at night. Only a few minutes away from Collingwood and Wasaga beach I highly recomend it and hope to return again sometime. Well done Lois and Bill!

Room Tip: No swimming pool but there was a hot tub I didn't get to.

We rang up at 6pm and they happily welcomed us. With brilliant tips of things to do locally and recommendations for a great Italian restaurant locally.
The room was beautiful presented and the bed soft.
We had a delicious breakfast and great conversion with the other guests.
Thank you

Myself and my partner stayed here for one night out of our 11 night trip to Ontario and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a good local base for the Wasaga Beach / Collingwood areas. Our sat nav had no problem getting us to right outside the door and it was really easy to navigate from and to, with a couple of restaurants within walking distance.

The B & B itself was in a lovely quaint detached house based on a local street within the neighbourhood. The house was immaculate and spacious with guests having the luxury being able to freely use a dining room, two sitting rooms and the garden area including decking and a hot tub at their leisure. One of the sitting areas was also stocked with complimentary home made biscotti biscuits and tea and coffee making facilities.

There are three rooms in total in the B & B, we stayed in room 1 which had a lovely large bed plus a separate lounge seating area with a TV and a cute bathroom with the original claw foot bath still in situ, a beautifully appointed room.

Since the moment we arrived the hosts, Lois and Bill, exceeded our expectations and put B & B's in the UK to shame. Lois had a book of local restaurant menu's for us to look through to decide where to eat in the vicinity and also gave us her personal recommendations. She went out of the way to ensure that we got the best out of our trip including lending us her parking pass for the beaches at Wasaga.

After a lovely meal in the town, Lois and Bill came and sat with us for evening drinks and we all had an enjoyable night putting the world to rights, a memorable evening.

Then in the morning we were served up a huge breakfast. A choice of fruit, yogurt and homemade muffins (or all of them) followed by a home cooked breakfast of vegetable frittata, potato rosti and local canadian bacon and toast. We definitely left there well fed.

I cannot recommend this B & B any more highly and were we to return to the Ontario area I would go out of my way to visit here again.

Bill and Lois were excellent hosts, they couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. Their B&B is beautiful inside and out and breakfast was a treat.

Simon ("The Ambassador") the cat was also a gracious host. He didn't even bother anyone's allergies, that's how clean the place is.

Our only negative comment is that our bed was a bit creaky.

Would stay there again!

What a beautiful treasure to find. Gables is truly a home away from home for anyone looking for an escape from mundane chain hotels! Lois and Bill have taken care of every detail to make sure the experience is memorable. The rooms are lovely and so comfortable ( I had a tour - of course mine was the nicest); the homemade breakfast was amazing - no cereal boxes and white toast here!! There's always coffee and a snack waiting if you want, and the salt water hot tub to relax the stress of the day away.
The hosts are wonderful too. They made me feel like an old friend! I'll certainly be back.

Room Tip: They are all lovely

We were up to see the Tall Ships this weekend. Found the Gables on line. Lois and Bill were very inviting and gave us the freedom of helping ourseves to whatever we needed. It was a lovely relaxing weekend and the healthy breakfasts were amazing.Sitting reading next to the pond was my favourite experience. Sadly I forgot my suit so couldn't take advantage of the hot tub. Walking up the creeky stairs took me back to Grandma's house. Lovely house, lovely hosts, lovely room and even the cat was friendly.
