“A Welcoming Break from Banal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

Millisle Bed and Breakfast is a special slow-down retreat from the fast lane. The focal point is the large rambling Victorian house. The heart is in the warmth and friendliness of the hosts. The special treat was the dinner prepared by our hostess, Chef Debra, on the night of our arrival and served on the side veranda overlooking the garden. Breakfasts were outstanding. The stay felt like being back in my childhood home; a welcome break from the anonymity of the succession of motels that we usually resort to.
Millisle B&B is just steps from the main part of the town of Merrickville; a charming village that feels like a town in the English countryside. One can easily spend a couple of days boating on the Rideau, watching and learning about the canals and enjoying local shope and restaurants.

Room Tip: We only saw our suite on the second floor. It comprised a pretty large bedroom, a sitting room w/TV...

Located in one of the grandest old homes in the center of historic Merrickville, you will not be disappointed with your stay at Millisle. Gourmet chef Debra whirls up a storm in her professional kitchen while husband Hugh, a self-described "1st Mate, cabin boy, deck steward, eningeer and galley slave, ably assists her.

Millisle is located just steps from docking facilities on the Rideau Waterway, On our recent cruise, however, we got way behind the curve and couldn't make Merrickville on time as planned. Not to worry! Hugh and his sister-in-law drove to a marina in Manotick to pick up our gang of six.

We had a wonderful time Millisle Bed and Breakfast in Merrickville. We stayed for 2 nights. It was warm, comfortable decor. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a very large bath. We were very happy with the quality of the room. It was very relaxing.
Debra and Hugh, the hosts, are so kind and hospitable. And Debra is a wonderful chef! The food was amazing! I loved eating breakfast on the porch. I strongly recommend the Millisle.
The town of Merrickville is very nice too...little shops, a spa, a glass blowing shop, lots of little restaurants. We had a great time will definitely go back.

We stayed at the Millisle for several weeks during the winter of 2011. Hosts Hugh and Deborah were tremendously hospitable, and their home was warm and welcoming reprieve from our daily of work. Eating here is a must! Chef Deborah prepared many delicious meals for us, each one rivaling the other in taste and thoughtful presentation. This is B&B done right.

Simply wonderful!
That would totally sum up my family’s stay at the Millisle Bed and Breakfast in Merrickville.
I have been fortunate enough to stay in some wonderful B&Bs in western and eastern Canada, but this is the first time I have done so in my home province of Ontario….and the experience was amazing.
Debra and Hugh, the hosts, are true professionals and the consummate hosts.
I stayed at the Millisle with my family last week. (3 adult children and an 80 year old father.)
We had four rooms – which were all tastefully decorated to match the historic character of the house.
The breakfast included a choice of egg dishes plus fabulous homemade breakfast breads, jams, and marmalade.
Also, because Debra is a true chef, we made special arrangements to have her prepare dinner for us on the night we arrived.
The menu included an avocado and spinach salad, bruschetta, baked salmon and a truly delicious chocolate truffle cake.
If you are interested in a dinner, you will have to speak with Debra before your visit and she will go through food choices and set out the cost involved.
We were sorry that we had to leave early on the morning to attend an event in nearby Kemptville; the small town of Merrickville, looked like it would be wonderful to explore – and it’s all within a few minutes walk of the Millisle.
Bottom line: if you are in eastern Ontario and are looking for a great place to spend one night…or a few nights, you just can’t beat the Millisle.
Everyone in the family said they will be returning.

After a long day on the road, Millisle B & B was a wonderful way to relax and unwind. After arriving late in the evening, the host greeted me out in the rain to carry my bags in. A glass of red wine awaited me once I settled in. My room was fantastic - cozy, clean, lots of Victorian charm and a large bathroom to boot. One of the best sleeps I had in a long time. A gourmet breakfast was served bright and early in the formal dining room - a lovely way to start the day. I can't say enough about how welcoming this B&B was. Service was top notch, food was fabulous and the accommodations absolutely comfortable. My only regret was that I only stayed the 1 night. Highly highly recommended. I'll be back.

This quaint, Victorian house is located on the main highway running through Merrickville. The owners, Debra and Hugh MacLennan are warn and welcoming hosts. Debra is a most accomplished chef, and she serves up a breakfast you won't find at any other B&B or inn...simply delicious and very nutritious. Hugh is a very knowledgeable and engaging host. Together, with their endearing little dog Maggie May, they create an atmosphere of home away from home.
