All the previous positives reviews were true, and the information provided by the website of the bed and breakfast was honest, so I will just add what the other reviews didn't say:
The guest rooms are nicer than the pictures. Each room has a window AC (although we needed very little of it), a balcony facing the lake with table and chairs, a closet, a futon that can extend as an extra bed, wireless internet, and a small table with 2 chairs guests can eat on. The shower is strong and relaxing.
The living room is on the 1st floor. it is spacious and clean. it is equipped with lots of music and books and table games, a stepper (exercise machine) and various kinds of chairs/sofa.
Our screen door to the balcony malfunctioned and Rene fixed it in no time. He brought out a big nylon cover for our bikes so they didn't have to suffer the rain.
Breakfast was simple yet delicious (bread, croissant, jam, milk, orange juice, butter, tea and coffee). Coffee was the tastiest we've ever had. Rene made fresh crepes for the guests, they are so different from what you'd buy from wholefoods and tasted so much better.
Laila made beds for the guests and refreshed supplies upon requests. She set up the extra bed (futon) for our toddler and made sure all our needs were met.
We were glad we took their advice for restaurants. They really know the good ones on different budget levels.
Everyday, my son asked whether he can come back to the bed and breakfast at the end of the day, and he was thoroughly disappointed when I said no on the day of our departure. I think that really said something about this place.
I would highly recommend Rene and Laila's Villa Massawippi and hope we will return sometime in the future.
