We spent 3 nights at the Calico Cat, conveniently en route from Toronto to Montreal. Dixie and John were very welcoming and keen to make our stay as comfortable and relaxed as possible. We enjoyed the uninterrupted view over the river from the spacious Queen room, sitting in the sun on the terrace outside our room and relaxing on the private dock watching the ships go by and the birds (especially osprey and loons).
We were served delicious breakfasts complemented by good conversation with our hosts.
Brockville, a ten minute drive away, is a small town with character and history. It offered excellent restaurants (as advised by our hosts), a pleasant waterfront walk and the mansion Fulford Place - an interesting example of Edwardian affluence in Canada.
The Calico Cat is highly recommended!
