We found this B&B on the web when looking for a place to stay while we were visiting friends.
On the website, it claims that this B&B was voted #1 in North America and voted 2nd place (2005) for best overall B&B's in North America.
When arriving to the place, the exterior of the home was charming and has two gazebos on the property. Unfortunately we couldn't use them since it was raining off/on that day. Inside the home was decorated in a country theme.
Our room had a king size bed. The furnishings were okay. Small bathroom though. We had a small tv in the room, with a remote that didn't work too well (couldn't scroll up the channels, only down). The floor lamp in the room wasn't working (it was plugged in too...). The room's a/c needed to be cranked up all the way to keep the room comfortable. The bed was quite hard with flat pillows. Sheets were ok, not of good quality. The bath towels looked old. The only items in the bathroom were liquid hand soap to use at the sink and the shower and plastic drinking cups. We've been at other B&B's and this was low standards to what we expected for a place voted #1.
Breakfast was ok. Pretty stingy with the ham...just gave you one thin slice. Nothing fancy...just ok.
Next morning had some sunshine and made walking around the garden nice. You could walk down to Lake Ontario and have a nice view of the historic lighthouse.
