Fern Glen Inn B&B
Ranked #1 of 1 Emsdale B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were looking for a B&B in Huntsville originally, to be closer to the Algonquin park, but in hindsight were very happy that everything was booked there, so we had to cast our net wider and ended up spending 2 wonderful nights in Fern Glen Inn. It is such a relaxed, charming place!

We enjoyed a campfire and a wonderful chat with Jackie and Jim on our first night, and the hot tub on our second night. The walking trails close to the house are great to see, with a nice lake with beaver dams only 25 minutes walking away. The breakfast is amazing, we had blueberry pancakes and little egg pies, homemade muffins and cake, and lots of fresh fruit. We did not even feel up for any cereal or toast (or lunch, until long after breakfast!) since the cooking was so good and filling.

Overall, it's the perfect starting point to explore the Algonquin area, it's not so much further driving to the park than from Huntsville, the road out to the B&B is part gravel, but not as rough as I would have first expected. And it's a chance to really be outside and enjoy good air and wonderful nature, with many lakes and waterfalls close by.

Thanks, Jackie and Jim!

What way as at first just a drive through Muskoka and Algonquin,turned out to be another great stay at Fernglen Inn.We just finished a few hours canoeing at Oxtongue RIver and another tour through Algonquin,when we thought why not make another visit to our favourite Inn.We have been regular visitors for years now,and,we love the atmosphere,the hearty breakfasts,and the kind attention of Jim and Jackie.As usual we weren't disappointed|
We took another hike into the forest to the lake,a night at the coop,were we enjoyed cards and discussing the days events.
A great stay ,especially since it was last minute,and ,Jim and Jackie were very accommodating.
All the rooms are great,but thanks so much for giving us the "Green Room" our fave!

Local attractions include Dog Sledding, (highly recommended).

Don't hesitate to have a visit to Fern Glen Inn.

If you like the outdoors, but don’t like to camp during the winter, this is the place to be!
We had a fabulous time with snowshoeing, dog sledding and tobogganing. They have a great property with very good guided routes and snowshoes in their guest lounge for your use. We had a great time in this guest lounge playing games and drinking hot chocolate in front of the wood stove fireplace.

Jim and Jackie are great hosts and we could feel the joy and pride they put into their ‘work’. Jackie is a fantastic cook and we enjoyed our breakfasts and chili dinner a lot.
We simply loved everything about this B&B and definitely recommend it to others who love to be outdoors and would like to experience a great B&B in the countryside.

Wow the hosts Jackie and Jim were so welcoming and the food was absolutely amazing. I went with my sister and mom and it was a great way to spend time together and catch up. Would also be a great weekend for a couple or friends to just spend time together no tv's or distractions! They have a great property and close to lots of places for day trips. The chickadees fed right out of ours hands it was such a neat experience.
