Had the chance to use 3 days of leave before I lost it, and decided to go to Ottawa as that is one of the cities in Canada in the East that I haven't been able to visit before. Richard's directions were excellent, and even with all the snow already on the ground (2-3 foot), there was room to park with with other guests. When I was looking for a place to stay, I knew that I wanted something central to the city and the sites. I knew I didn't want to stay in a hotel, and parking was important to me because I wanted to leave the car parked while I went exploring on foot. I love animals, and it was a treat to meet Sunny, who was very well behaved for such a big, happy dog. Breakfast was pretty amazing. Had breakfast with 2 couples visiting from England, one to see their children, and the other was a young couple who'd spent the morning snowshoeing nearby. Great conversation, which is what is such a blessing with bed and breakfasts, learning what others have done and enjoyed during their visit. Richard was very helpful in telling me not only where the sites were from the location (with books and laptop), but the best ways to travel: what roads, what direction of travel so you could see specific things on the way back (all the Christmas lights that were still up), but for a January 1st visit when there was an unusual cold spell, what places you could stop in to get warm. The day that I'd left, his wonderful helper made fresh croissants, right out of the oven, that melted in your mouth. I'd recommend this location, and hope to be able to come back when my wife can travel with me. I don't want to forget to mention that the price surprised me, that the top ranked B&B in Ottawa could be so affordable.
