“Beautiful B & B and wonderful hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Our stay at The Bell House was absolutely wonderful. Grant and Vera's home is beautifully decorated and we so enjoyed hearing the fascinating history of the Bell family. The Peele Room is lovely and the bed was very comfortable. So nice to wake up in the morning to a fresh pot of tea waiting outside our door! Vera's breakfast was delicious and we appreciated her accommodating a gluten free diet. Vera and Grant are wonderful hosts and make you feel right at home. They are happy to suggest sights to see in the area such as restaurants, wineries or shopping. We would highly recommend this B & B and look forward to visiting again. Many thanks for a lovely stay!

Thank your Bill & Anne Marie. It was so nice to reconnect with friends from Burlington. I hope the Labour Day Weekend will work for the neighbourhood reunion.

The Bell House and property is immaculate. Vera and Grant have done an amazing job at creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The house is clean and tidy and beds are super comfy. The breakfasts are absolutely out of this world.

Vera and Grant are super relaxed and don't mind having a friendly chat that makes you feel you are in the company of close friends.

The location is near perfect being across the road from a winery and close to a golf course, a fruit market and a place to rent bicycles.

I would have to say that this is the best B&B that I have ever stayed at.

A group of us from around the world came to Harrow to attend a friend's wedding. We took 3 rooms and Vera and Grant made us feel so comfortable even with our crazy schedule. Breakfasts were amazing - better than most 5-star hotels I've stayed at. Beautify presentation that matched the flavour and freshness of the fruits, eggs, bacon and baking. Wineries nearby, historic Amhurstburg and the beauty of Lake Erie. Room interior decors were beautiful, classy and clean. Vera and Grant are amazinly friendly. We loved sitting and talking in the screened in veranda, drinking local wine. I recommend this B&B to all!

Room Tip: All 3 rooms we stayed in were great! Some have private toilet/showers if preferred.

Thanks so much for your kind words. It was really an exciting weekend. The stories from the other side of the world were fantastic. It was fun to enjoy a few laughs on the porch after the formalities of the B&B ended.

My wife and I stayed here along with 2 other couples while attending a wedding in the area and none of us were disappointed. We all agreed that the breakfast was one of the best we had in a long time. The rooms were clean and the decor fit the relaxing, wine country atmosphere. Vera and her husband were extremely hospitable. We would definitely recommend the Bell House B&B and hope to visit again soon.

My partner and I stayed for a weekend in May and had a truly wonderful experience! The house is beautiful and comfortable with a rich sense of history and character. The hostess/host are warm and very kind. We were asked of any dietary restrictions or needs prior to our visit and were treated to a homemade, absolutely delicious breakfast that kept us full most of the day! The scenery is beautiful and there are many wineries nearby to explore. We would love to visit again in future and highly recommend The Bell House B & B to anyone else who is considering it! You will love the peace, tranquility and warmth.

Great experience! Booked last moment for a circle bike tour of Essex county. Easily accommodated. Significant dietary restrictions which Vera enthusiastically accommodated far beyond expectations. Excellent dinner recommendation at Oxley winery across the road. Hosts were very friendly and invited me to join them at their campfire, where we enjoyed a lengthy discussion. Would definitely return.

We had a wonderful weekend. It was a pleasure to meet and chat with the owners Vera and Grant and stay in the Bell House. Comfortable and beautiful house with an interesting history. The coffee waiting outside our room in the morning was a great treat. The breakfasts were out of this world!! Would stay here again and again!
