“Perfect place to stay in Gravenhurst”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife and I just returned from a motorcycle road trip, the last night of which we spent in Gravenhurst at the Inn on Bay. We are glad we chose to stay here, and we will definitely return.

The owners, Jen and Tyler, are friendly, down-to-earth, and have excellent taste.

The rooms are pristine - clean and spacious. The house is beautiful. When you first enter the house, you feel the charm of the house which must have been built at the turn of the century. Lovely decor, tasteful music. Coffee and tea were available, along with home-made cookies (which were fantastic!)

When we came down for breakfast in the morning, a fresh fruit salad was served with yogurt and granola, as well as coffee and juice. Both my wife and I thought this was splendid (and more than enough!) - then Jen asked what type of omelettes we wanted! The food was great, the service impeccable, the atmosphere left nothing to be desired.

Location-wise, it's about a 10 minute walk to the wharf and about 3-4 minutes to the downtown area, so it's really perfectly centrally located.

Highly recommended. On our trip we stayed at other venues at similar prices that paled in comparison.

We were recently in Gravenhurst to attend a wedding and stayed at The Inn on Bay. Loved it! Jen was a fabulous hostess, the room was beautiful and the breakfasts were so good. We lucked out and got the Muskoka suite, which meant a sitting room and en suite. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated. Jen's breakfasts were delicious: day one granola, yoghurt and fresh fruit, followed by an omelet, day two fruit and french toast with blueberries. I would certainly stay there again should I ever be in the area.

Room Tip: Muskoka suite, all the way!

We stayed at the Inn on Bay during our nine weeks trip around the US and Canada. Now that our journey is over, we can say that the Inn on Bay was one of the best if not THE best accomodation we stayed at. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts are so warmhearted people. We only stayed one night but we would have loved to stay longer and we hope that we will have the opportunity to come back one day. We would absolutely recomend this Inn to anyone who loves to stay at a beautiful small Inn.

Our last stop on our summer vacation this year was at The Inn on Bay in Gravenhurst. What a wonderful place!! The bed and breakfast is lovely, the hosts are friendly and accommodating, and the food was terrific. John and Suzanne also directed us to William (at "Tour Muskoka Lakes") who provided a beautiful boat cruise. They very much deserve high praise and the great ratings that we and others have given them.

We made our annual trip to The Muskokas and stayed, once again, at The Inn on Bay - our fourth visit. It is a lovely B&B with very nice rooms, great breakfasts, and of course, wonderful hosts. It is situated within walking distance of Muskoka Wharf and the main street of Gravenhurst. Our only regret is that we missed seeing Jen, Tyler and their children but had the pleasure of meeting Susan and John (and Sookie!) this time around. We look forward to returning in 2014!

Clean, comfortable and a delicious breakfast. The location is great and very central for exploring any Muskoka lake. The rooms are all spacious, quiet and have their own washrooms. A great spot for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
