“Paradise Found”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We have been to so many B&B's over the past 20 years and for comfort, hospitality and access, none can compare to the Duck Pond. By having your own detached building, you get privacy, choose when you want to eat a delicious breakfast and you can park your car at the door step. Simply put, we just keep going back.

What a wonderful B&B this is. Spotlessly clean and complete with all the amenities of home. The breakfast complete with homemade breads and jams to eat at our leisure was delicious and plentiful. Marjolein, our host was extremely welcoming and has thought of everything to make her guests feel like they are truly on vacation. The view of the pond and farm field while sipping our morning coffee on the private patio was a great start to the day.
Point Pelee National Park was an easy, short drive from Duck Pond. As were the shops, restaurants and waterfront of Leamington.
My next visit to the area will definitely include Duck Pond B&B.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent four-night stay. Our private "cottage" was well-equipped with everything from helpful brochures/maps on local points of interest to a very comfortable queen-sized bed. Each morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast; Marjolein would leave goodies in the fridge for us to heat up and enjoy at our leisure. She spoiled us with yummy home-made preserves, jams, breads, crepes, omlettes, yoghurt, fresh fruit, etc. Aad was very helpful in making suggestions for sight-seeing.

We timed our stay to coincide with the annual bird migration. Point Pelee Park is a wonderful site; park staff were very helpful and kind. We also got to see historical sites in the area.

It was a great visit to a very special part of Ontario. Thank you Marjolein and Aad.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed dining at the restaurant Marjolein recommended in Kingsville. I believe it was ca...

This is not your ordinary B&B....it's very private, actually a separate apartment from the house. The amazing breakfasts are waiting for you in the fridge each evening with all the trimmings, listing of ingredients and instructions for warming. The hard part is waiting for the morning to try them out! On our last night it was warm enough to sit out on the patio and watch the sunset and in the morning we enjoyed breakfast in the same spot accompanied by numerous birds, rabbits and the ducks, of course. I highly recommend this B&B. We certainly hope to return for another visit in the near future.

We really enjoyed our three day stay at the Duck Pond. Aad and Marjolein are wonderful hosts, very friendly. We enjoyed having our own space seperate from the main house, outdoor patio with barbeque. Seniors will especially enjoy, no steps or stairs. And the view from the kitchen window to see the duck pond. The rooms were spacious and clean, very comfortable bed in the bedroom. Extra bed in living area if needed, with screen to go around if nessesary. The kitchen area makes you feel right at home, everything you need right there and lovely area to eat. The breakfasts are so good and all home made, left in the fridge the night before so that you can heat them in the microwave at you leisure in the morning. Extras like fruit or yogurt or homemade bread or some kind of fruit loaf slices. We look forward our nest stay at the Duck Pond.

Fabulous stay at the Duck Pond. Marjolein and Aad are wonderful hosts. The cottage is separate from the main house so it is private. VERY clean and bright! The large great room has all the comforts of home - tv, dvd, radio, wifi. Marjolein has stocked the cottage with brochures for restaurants and attractions in the area so you will not be at a loss for things to do. A separate bedroom with a double bed and there's space for another double in the great room with a moveable privacy divider if needed. Marjolein's breakfasts are FABULOUS - she prepares and places them in the fridge the night before with instructions on how to heat them up in the morning. Her homebaked bread and preserves are to die for! Can't be beat!!

We had a fantastic stay at The Duck Pond. We stayed for three days with our two-year old son. Local attractions like Pelee Point and the Pelee Island ferry are nearby, as is the town of Leamington, but our son was also happy to play in the large grassy backyard and feed the ducks.

The breakfasts were delicious, and it was so convenient to have them available on our own schedule. The cottage is immaculate, and has lots of space, comfortable beds, satellite TV. The wifi was a bit spotty but the hosts did their best to sort that out right away.

We would stay there again anytime and we hope to go back.
