I booked 2 rooms for myself and 3 sisters. Even before arrival the owner was helpful providing us with very much appreciated directions on how to get from the Toronto airport to the B&B. The place was scrupously clean, had all the amenities, was delightful to look at and a nice place to be after a day of touring or a night at the Shaw Festival. Breakfasts were incredible - generally 3 courses starting with a fruit dish, then a main course. If you are a bacon, eggs and toast kind of person you may want to go elsewhere, but if you enjoy a variety of foods, excellently prepared, you will be delighted with the breakfasts and the rooms.
Always available in the dining/sitting room were coffee, tea, water and juice. TVs were in the rooms as well as in the sitting room. We visited in May and it wasn't warm enough to sit our and enjoy the lovely covered porch, but we do want to go back just to lounge around and read a book or sip a glass of wine on the porch after a day of activiites.
You can walk down to the main streets of town, but it is a fairly long walk that I would do if I were going for the exercise, but not if I were going out to dinner or a play in the evening. Most people who visit this area have a car anyway, as I did, otherwise you are stuck hiring tours simply to see the beautiful countryside.
