My wife and I on a trip from Seoul, South Korea stopped by here for one-night in April (I'm Canadian, she French though). This place was exactly what we needed; quiet, nice hosts, high quality / clean accommodations, great Canadian pancake breakfast.
Service / Hosts
The couple who own the B&B are extremely helping and friendly. True Canadian hosts. They helped us make reservations for the boat tour of the islands and showed us where we could go for a run in the town / forest and provided a map. It was a hassle free stay with nice people.
We stayed in the loft. It was a great size. 2 sitting areas. Stand-up shower and soaker tub for 2 tall people. It was very clean and was in great shape (maybe newly renovated). Either way, it was a great room, very comfortable. I don't think the photos on here give it justice.
Walking distance to the water, 'downtown' and the Playhouse theater, it was very convenient. One of the ferry docs is close by but we were there in the off-season so we had to drive 5 minutes to the other terminal. Not bad, simple drive.
Its a small town, so if you are looking to relax, this is the place. The ferries are close by to tour the 1000 Islands. Playhouse theater to see live theater, open only in the summer though, it was closed in April. We also went for 2 runs, one in the town and an 8km run through a forest. Very nice if you are use to running in a large city.
The breakfast was great. We opted for the Canadian Pancakes. Was served with coffee, fruit, juice, etc. Very good. We also went downstairs to the pub that is also owned by the owner for dinner at night. Great food. I had fish'n'chips which were great, and my wife the Chicken stew in a bread bowl. She still talks about the how good the sweet potato fries were. The food is a higher quality than standard "pub food". Good selection of pints too.
All and all, I would go back to this place if in the area. The town itself might not justify a week vacation there, but definitively head there for a weekend away.
