Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Could not have picked a better B&B for our first. Susan was outstanding in taking care of
all. Mentioned a favourite food and there it was the next morning. Susan even laundered
a cover that had managed to get dirty on the trip, great place, cozy, clean and neat,
especially with its own private bath. Loved it and would return in a heartbeat, enjoyed
Parry Sound, what a friendly community.

My family stayed at 40 Bay St for 3 nights in July 2013 utilizing both The Retreat Room & The Garden Room. We were extremely satisfied with our stay. Clean & comfortable & air conditioned. Food was simply delicious with different choices each day. Susan was our host and quite gracious. She is friendly, family oriented, knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to assist us with our younger daughter when she wasn't feeling well. She is extremely intelligent and runs her B&B with caring, respect and efficiency. 40 Bay St offers little luxuries as well such as free cold bottled water and 24 coffee/tea station. The home is only accessible via key entry which you receive from her upon arrival; we always felt safe & secure. The location is fabulous as it across the street from the Town Dock and walking distance to great restaurants & downtown. Parking was easily accessible right in front of the home and free of charge. Each of the three rooms have their own distinct personality. The Retreat Room is simply fabulous & luxurious all the way...it is also the coolest room in air conditioned months. The Garden Room has two twin beds, very cute décor and lovely walkout to deck/garden. The bathroom is a little small but functional. The Bay Room is nice with a small washroom but great view of Georgian Bay. For some light sleepers, they may find the railway tracks/trains a little noisy & rumbly but Susan brilliantly includes earplugs with the toiletries. This issue is true for any accommodations in the northern part of town. We have stayed in almost every accommodation possible in Parry Sound over the years as we visit family/friends up there every summer...so far, she offers the best value. We will most definitely be returning. Susan, if you're reading this....we can't thank you enough for giving us such a great experience and "home away from home" feeling.

Room Tip: Luxury & spacious = The Retreat Room, Cute = The Garden Room, Quaint = The Bay Room

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast last Sunday night. We were in town, working with our real estate agent, looking at cottages. Susan was wonderful and allowed us an early check in to accommodate our busy schedule. We stayed in the Garden Room and absolutely loved it. It is decorated in crisp white and pretty blue hues, has a wonderful balcony overlooking the garden and a very nice ensuite bathroom. The bed was comfortable; Susan has spared no expense with her bed linens and even offers a pillow menu!

Susan went out of her way to help us while we were there, even going through her contact list to help us find a local contractor we needed to inspect a cottage we wanted to buy. She also gave us lots of tips about buying cottages in the area.

We also appreciated that Susan had a small refrigerator stocked with bottled water just outside of our room and a Tassimo, with a wide selection of coffee and teas. Very convenient.

Our breakfast was made fresh to order and we ate in the front sun room overlooking the water. We enjoyed fresh peaches, homemade bread and preserves, and a delicious omelette with roasted peppers, mushrooms and bacon. Delicious!!

I would highly recommend the 40 Bay Street Bed and Breakfast to anyone looking for a cozy, place to stay in Parry Sound. The location is perfect. My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful stroll on the nature trail that is just down the street. There are also lots of little shops and wonderful restaurants all within walking distance.

We will definitely be back!

Our stay with Susan at 40 Bay Street was fabulous! The accomodations were immaculate and very comfortable. The location of the house was fabulous with views of the water and an easy walk to either downtown or restaurants. And the food was terrific! After we were served our fruit, muffins, yogurt, juice and tea in the sunroom facing the bay, we thought we had had the best. But Susan brought on the main course of omelets garnished with grape tomatoes and toast with a nice selection of jams. I would recommend this location for anyone looking for a nice relaxing place with a hostess who could be anyone's friend.

Room Tip: We had morning views of the bay, which were extremely nice.

Just returned from a two-day visit to Parry Sound, and despite thunderstorms, had a fabulous time. Susan, the proprietor at 40 Bay Street, has a beautiful establishment. Our room was clean, cozy and comfortable. Susan graciously accommodates those who require special diets (wheat issues in my case) and serves a delicious full breakfast. She is knowledgeable about her community, offered advice on attractions, shopping and dining, and also offered the use of a computer when my friend's laptop died during our visit. I would definitely stay here again, and happily recommend 40 Bay Street as a great B&B.

Room Tip: There are three rooms available...and all are lovely. The bathroom in the Bay Room is compact, but...

Susan made my 5 day stay in Parry Sound absolutely wonderful. She went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable. The breakfasts were to die for, really! I highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place to stay in Parry Sound (or the area). I just wish I had an excuse to go back in the near future.
