We booked this B&B last minute for the long weekend (215$ w/tax for 2 nights for 2 adults + 1 child). We were asked to pay in advance so we asked to see the rooms and the owner made a really big deal about this request and said that even if we didn’t like the rooms we would have to pay full price for our 2 night booking (!!). This was not a good start, I am surprised to read from other reviews that they are friendly when he didn’t bother to start arguing in front of our son...
Rooms: When we got to the level 2 to review the rooms we were completely in shock: all of it was very disorganised, cracks in the walls, cleaning products around, etc. I can live with an old B&B but this is beyond that, with the pics you can see by yourself.
Baths: We didn’t dare to use the shared bathrooms, ...
Shared grounds: We looked at the BBQ at the back and it was pretty dirty from previous uses, in general I would say it was not a good experience. There was fireplace
Breakfast was poor
Location is not bad, around 15km to Algonquin park but that is the only good thing I can think of.
I wouldn't recommend this
