Comfortable however the place needs a bit of tidying up. Breakfast was okay. Nothing special and I felt the owner could have been better groomed to great guests in the morning. Kitchen visible and a mess. Room was comfortable but very busy. Windows don't open so had to sleep with the air on even when it was not necessary. I... More

The host are laid back and welcoming. They have experience and are yet new owners in this charming and well located B&B. I stopped by last minute during a thunderstorm and they took me in even without power

We stayed there on Oct 18 for one night. Had an absolutely amazing time! Wish we were there longer. Bill was fantastic and a superb host! We stayed in the top room. Was great! You have the whole top floor to yourself and the washroom was separate from the sleeping area which was quite nice. Enjoyed the soaker tub considerably.... More

What great people Bill and Linda are. Beautiful home and a totally warm welcome. We spent three effortless nights here. The breakfasts beat anything you'd get in a 5 star hotel. Linda fresh bakes everyday! Bill sorted tee times at local golf courses with ease. Great spot. We will return!!

We arrived at Bill and Linda's place Sunday afternoon after a leisurely drive from Peterborough and were delighted with our accommodations. We stayed in the Moyes Suite, which was just perfect with a comfortable bed, large ensuite bathroom, and a wonderful small "outdoor" sitting area. We loved it and it was a great place to celebrate our 25th anniversary (today!).... More

The place is well located close to the public beach; the room nice, typically overdone 'historic' Ontario. Good bed. But I need some choice and something more than sugar for breakfast! I might like my yogurt plain; I do like my coffee good; and something with healthy protein for my main dish. I might also like some quiet at breakfast... More

Linda and Bill McCauley are more than hosts, more than bed and breakfast owners, they are friends to everyone who sets foot inside their door. Thank you Bill and Linda for being incredible hosts and make everyone feel not just comfortable but as if we were at home. Thank you
