This B&B has a bucolic picture on its home page. Actually it is surrounded by tall apt buildings on three sides. However once you are inside, you can completely forget that. From the room I was in the windows looked out on a sizeable back yard that looked to be 30 feet wide and 120 feet deep (but I'm not good at estimating). Here we could walk the dogs at night as well. Sitting in the parlor or on the veranda, like in our bedroom, you do not see the bldgs. but you look out on an even bigger and lushly grassy front yard, which your eye follows to the river and then the US on the far side. I loved spending part of the last hours of daylight reading in the parlor and looking at the view. The owner was not there but had hired s.o. to manage it, who prepared an excellent breakfast each day, and was nice enough, but she was often absent as she had another job as well. The town has some very good restaurants. We drove to the Point Pelee Natl Park one day where we followed the wooded trails and sandy paths to the southernmost point of mainland Canada, a spit of land (or rather sand), ending in a point, surrounded by the waters of Lake Erie, which were surprisingly different in color, surface and temperature on either side of the spit. The water, breeze and view was lovely and worth the trip, but be ready to walk through a stretch of sand with the stench of long-dead fish lying upon it before you get to the end. Altogether the B&B was certainly adequate to our needs, and very comfortable, with hot drinks and cake slices accessible at all hours, very quiet, but not the place for a honeymoon.
