Reviewed November 20, 2011

My girlfriend and I made our annual Christmas shopping adventure to the Duck Pond Bed and Breakfast outside of Leamington. Over the last 10 years we have visited many B and B's across Southwestern Ontario and I have to say this is by far one of the best. So private and probably the best breakfasts ever with homemade preserves, breads, crepes and omeletes just to mention a few delecacies.The location is very central and allows you plenty of time to explore all the little surrounding towns with all the hidden treasures they have to offer. The Windsor Outlet Mall is very close as well. You don't have to drive hours to get anywhere and we will be back to do the wine tours some day.When we arrived we were greeted by Marjolein and Aad and given lots of information of where to visit as well as some very good places to eat. Nice thing about the location of the Duck Pond is that it is close enough to have dinner delivered if you are tired from a full day of sight seeing or shopping. The interior of the very private (completely separate from the house) cottage was beautiful , homey comfortable , welcoming warm and cozy . Two very comfortable beds, lovely sitting area with cable tv and also internet if yo so desire. Loved looking out the back door at the ducks playing in the pond at the back of our cottage. We actually made a game out of guessing what Marjolein would leave us for breakfast from one morning to the next....so awesome to return from a day out and find our breakfast waiting in the fridge just to be reheated. The Duck Pond is the best bang for your buck. Highly reccommend their mid week special Mon-Thurs...check out the website for this and other specials , you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Marjolein and Aad for your hospitality you have a truly spectacular place and we will be back for another adventure.

Room Tip: no fitness center at our b and b .......but it is a lovely area to walk a country mile.

The Duckpond while off the main roads of Leamington allowed us to travel from the B & B to do a wine tour of four of the 14 wineries around Leamington - Aleksander, Vinemount, Pelee island, and Mastronaddi. When we arrived we were given maps and information about the area and some ideas about where to have supper. The weather did not cooperate so we did not go to the nearby bird sanctuary.

Having a large and completely free-standing accommodation was wonderful (at 900+ sq. ft., there are apartments in big cities that are smaller!). The place is immaculate, the bed very comfortable. There is a fridge, microwave, electric kettle, hot plate, BBQ on the small outside patio, utensils and china. There is comfortable seating in front of the living room TV and also a TV in the bedroom .... and, very nice, free wireless connection to the Internet. There is a second bed with screening possibilities, a four-piece bath with very nice towels, and laundry facilities, which we did not use. The grounds are equally well kept.

The homemade pumpkin-spice loaf with apples in a brown sugar syrup, fresh orange juice, creamer, milk, breads, and jams along with bacon and egg omelettes for breakfast were in the fridge when we arrived back from our tour of the area - they only needed re-heating in the morning. The table was set for us in an autumn theme.

In the morning we were given information about another trip that we are planning in Holland next spring - - in all ways - - good hosts and great value

My wife and two small children stayed for two nights and were delighted by all the amenities, the fabulous breakfasts and the attention to detail. This B&B far exceeds anything you would get in a regular hotel. Some examples (from the point of view of someone with small children): childproofing covers on the wall outlets, immaculately clean rooms, on-site laundry available during off-peak hours, some books and board games in the living room, a well-stocked kitchen, a pond in the back yard with live ducks and geese (well fenced to prevent children from wandering in). Most memorable was the quality of the breakfast, which matches or surpasses any five-star hotel we've experienced. My wife and I have travelled extensively and have to say you'll be delighted by this wonderful B&B, and by its attentive owners. A rare gem worth every penny!
