“Baby-friendly professional & accommodating service”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We were impressed with the baby-friendly service: there were multiple booster seats so our 19 month could sit with us at the table, a pack and play for him to sleep in, and we even received a baby monitor so we could sit on the porch downstairs after he fell asleep. We spent two nights here; one full day at Sandbanks Provincial Park. We were even allowed to use a park access pass that saved us the $16 in parking for the day. Breakfasts were amazing. For one evening, we used the BBQ provided by the hosts and then had dinner in a closed gazebo that kept out all the bugs and allowed us to eat outside. My one regret is that we couldn't stay longer and just spend a day on the property, swimming in the pool, playing catch or frisbee and barbecuing a little more. One thing that I would note, though, is that by September, the hosts were quite fatigued - they're hard workers, and the place is booked pretty much for the whole summer, so they don't get much time to rest. So take it easy on the hosts...

Room Tip: Rooms facing away from the road are quieter, but even our room facing the road was fine.

We stayed for 3 nights with my parents and my two kids - and everyone loved it! Debbie, Bill and Lise were super-sweet, friendly and helpful. The pool was a big hit for my kids, and my son is still raving about the breakfasts! So nice to be spoiled - we'll definitely be back!

I stumbled upon this place and didn't know what to expect. When I arrived with my family we were welcomed with open arms. Debbie, Bill and Lisa are wonderful hosts. They provided excellent travel tips, gave cool tours of the chicken coop in the back and the breakfasts were very delicious. The house is massive and we enjoyed having wine and cheese on the porch outside, comfortable sleeps in the most comfortable beds and watched a movie in our room at night. It was also convenient that it was close to PIcton and local wineries. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway this is the place to go!

Debbie, Bill and Lise really go out of their way to make guests feel welcome, no matter how young, they are very kid-friendly, breakfast was great, rooms very comfortable, kids loved the chickens and the pool.

We enjoyed our nice stay at this lovely family inn. We spent 2 days in Picton and went to the Sandbanks provincial park beach which was clean and not too crowded. The water was actually quite warm considering we are in Canada ! The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
The chicken farm was an event for us city folks - thanks Bill for showing us around. A big thank you to Debbie and Lise for the great big delicious homemade breakfasts...it was a treat to eat outside on the porch. We would recommend this inn and would also love to come back.

We spent a week at Bells and Whistles in August. What a treat! Our grandchildren were treated so well. Our eight year old grandson was wowed with the fantastic breakfasts.He told everyone he met" I love this place ! ". The Inn has a very relaxed and laid back atmosphere. Super comfortable rooms. WE enjoyed our stay immensely. Would recommend for families for sure.
