“Best cottage ever!”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

We stayed at the Cottage available at the Nehemiah Brainerd B&B, and wow!
At the cottage you feal like you are in your own woodsy paradise overlooking a massive beautiful river. The cottage has EVERY amenity you could possible want yet is the cosiest place we have ever stayed. And as if the cottage isn't enough, within 15 minutes you can drive to the Essex steam train and riverboat, fancy dining, an opera house, a castle tour, artsy little community 'main streets', mom & pop ice cream shop, antiques, architectural buildings, bridges, I can go on and on. This place is a must!

Having stayed at larger 5 star hotels during the visit it was great to have a week integrating into a family environment.

The owners present their guest house like a welcoming home. The rooms are good with the relaxing area even better.

We were a large wedding party family and they made this time so special.

The breakfasts are something special. Everywhere else we chose from a menu. Here it was a surprise every morning.

We honestly hope to return.

My friends and our kids stayed at this wonderful B&B recently since we were exploring the Essex area, and were so sorry we only stayed one night. The house is beautifully maintained and decorated just perfectly. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the hosts Maryan and Geoff were lovely and welcoming. Very close to all that we wanted to do, but well set back from the street with plenty of land and vistas to contemplate.

We plan to come again and stay longer next year!

Maryann and Geoff gave us such a wonderful welcome - we had tea and cakes on arrival and chatted for sometime!

Their home is beautifully old English, clean and well decorated. In the evening they recommended we go to Brush Mill Inn for dinner which was very good.

Breakfast was cooked specially for us - we had a full English, toast, fruit juice and coffee to set us up for the day.

Maryann and Geoff are a very hospitable couple and made us feel as though we were staying with friends. We were only sorry we couldn't stay for longer for more chats!

We had a wonderful time - Inn keepers were terrific hosts. We stayed in the Library Suite which was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious - homemade pancakes , sausage and fresh fruit. Can't wait to go visit the area again .
