Husband and I were blown away by the hospitality and fantastic accommodations. The host was welcoming and friendly, and the dog was beyond adorable. The room is small, bathroom very small (especially for larger folks) but the super comfortable bed, beyond delicious food and beautiful location more than makes up for it. Right by the main Dorset strip, with a... More

Great accommodations, excellent breakfast, terrific hosts (including Rolo) and a totally relaxing visit to Dorset. Made us feel like home. Wander the yard, sit on the dock or visit the gazebo if the mosquitoes start to bite.

The Moose was just the place that we needed for a getaway after a stressful period in our lives. The location, property, room, hosts and breakfasts were perfect and contributed to much needed rest and relaxation. We arrived exhausted and left 3 days later feeling completely refreshed and ready to tackle the next challenges of life. Thanks to Debbie and... More

Amazing place to relax and fun company. Even the little dog was a great host! The breakfast was over the top, and certainly kept me full for the better part of the day. Accommodations were spacious and clean (and the WiFi was super quick - nice perk) Will always recommend the Moose B & B. Thank you!

Love the combined century-old charm with newer construction in an idyllic locale on the narrows on Lake of Bays in the charming town of Dorset, a short distance to all amenities and local attractions...including the iconic lookout tower. The breakfasts are outstanding! Debi, the owner-host is a very warm, kind person who will make your stay quite pleasant.

Some very dear friends from the UK were paying a nostalgic visit to Canada. As a family they had spent their summers on Lake of Bays. They asked us about the Moose B & B. in Dorset where I live. While I had not stayed at the Moose, I had toured the premises and was totally impressed with the contemporary,... More

This place is beautifully decorated and has warm and friendly hosts. We traveled up into Algonquin Park for a birthday lunch and wandered around town. Shopping in Robinsons was fun too. The only thing I would change would be the size of the 2 smaller rooms -- which would be impossible, but they could call them rooms rather than the... More

We had such a great stay at the Moose B&B! We visited on Labour Day weekend for our anniversary and we stayed in the Sage Suite. The room and bathroom were very clean, cozy and filled with cute little extras. There was a Keurig and a mini-fridge right outside the room for us to use. They have a gorgeous property... More

The weekend at the Moose B&B was a wonderful time. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Debi serves up an amazing breakfast, made to order, with a large menu variety that covers all the healthy options and also the best of the traditional comfort foods. Tina & Tullio
