We chose the Iron Kettle B&B largely based on the strength of its TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed -- rather, we found it to be one of the nicest B&Bs we have stayed at.
Situated just south of Comber, and 20 minutes N of Leamington, the Iron Kettle occupies a stately 19th-centure house amidst nicely-landscaped surroundings. From the private parking lot to the pond that you can watch as you eat your breakfast, the owners have found a good balance between the classic and the modern.
The same continues inside: fully renovated, it has five bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. Tastefully furnished, the bedrooms have superbly comfortable Sealy beds for a good night's sleep, with furnishings that fit the ambiance of the house while still providing the modern comforts. The two sitting rooms and the kitchen area continue the same theme, and provide a comfortable area to sink into the leather sofa and read a book -- or watch the satellite TV, if one is so inclined. Wireless Internet and a computer are also available for Internet access.
The owners are very helpful and accommodating, and clearly take pride of ownership in the B&B, ensuring that everything is clean, presentable and working condition. Oh, and the breakfast: apart from the excellent continental-style content, we enjoyed some outstanding croissants with egg, Genoa salami, provolone and Asiago cheese. I can't imagine a much better start for a day!
The Iron Kettle is sure to be at the top of our list for the future, and is highly recommended whether visiting Leamington and Point Pelee, or looking for a place to stay en route to Windsor and Detroit.
