Minden House B&B and Cottages
Ranked #2 of 8 Minden B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We took a mid-week break to re-visit the Minden area. It's just lovely. Spent 2 nights at the Minden House B & B in the Tamarac Cottage. Super clean, comfortable, all amenities included. Great view of the Gull River. Gord & Lesley were outstanding hosts.

Excellent location enables you to walk around Minden along the Gull River. Enjoyed the wooden boardwalk to the local Library. Toured around the area, including Lake Kashagawigamog and the Village of Halliburon.

Room Tip: All the cottages are lovely. We loved that they provided games & movies including "Casabl...

We stayed at the Minden House B&B while in town for a wedding and were so pleased with absolutely everything! Lesley, Gord and Buddy were exceptionally welcoming and made us feel welcome and comfortable immediately. Our bedroom was warm and comfortable, everything was well appointed and very clean. Everything I needed to have on hand was easily available (blankets, pillows, soaps, glasses, water etc.) They were also understanding of our odd schedule and helped to work around us as best as they could. The location was also great as it was within walking distance of any shop we'd need and had a pretty view of the river. Our breakfast was also fabulous and Lesley was lovely enough to accommodate my dietary restrictions. Highly recommend!

We have enjoyed the hospitality of Minden House B&B many times over the past 12 years. Lesley and Gord always make us feel so very welcome in their lovely Victorian home on the picturesque Gull River. We have stayed in the various rooms in the house and have enjoyed them all , but particularly like the Kirkwood with its pretty alcove,perfect for reading or enjoying a cup of tea. Lesley provides a delicious hot breakfast and we are always impressed with her repertoire of yummy entrees. She and Gord are very helpful in recommending local restaurants and attractions. Last summer, while we were supervising the construction of our cottage, we stayed a few nights in one of their cottages and found it very clean and comfortable as well. It is always a pleasure to return to Minden House and we will continue to do so when we come up to check on our new place in the off season.

My wife and I had never stayed at a B & B before and needed a place to stay for a friends wedding. We found this place at a lower rate then many other accomodations in the area. Turned out to be a good choice. Clean, tastefully decorated room in a beautiful century home. Gord and Leslie are great hosts and serve a great breakfast. Would definetly stay again.

We stayed in cottage #5 (2 bedroom). Clean and comfortable. Bed was very very comfortable and water pressure in shower is great. Hosts are fantastic. Perfect spot right on the river in town. Will stay again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at B&B during the civil holiday weekend. before coming to town of minden, we did not plan our accommodation, it turned out of searching around for a room in the dark. luckily, we found B&B with the helps of the nice local residents. It was a great experience that we had this classic brtish sytle room and a healthy british style breakfast provided by the hosts. at night time, you can visit the restaurant near by in a walk-able distant, where played excellent blue music. this location is very closed to the must-try ice cream store, kawartha, in minden. we highly recommend this house as your choice of accommodation during the holiday.

We visit family in Minden frequently and stay at Minden House B&B & Cottages because the family is too large to stay in one house. Our most recent stay was in November and once again we had a great time. The hosts are very friendly and flexible and the Inn is cozy and pretty. We stay in one of the cottages on the property so I can't say what the main house is like, but it looks very nice from what I have seen. The Inn is nestled along the Gull River on a fairly quiet street. Our cottage was called "The Pines" and it has a queen sized bed with a futon pullout. It's essentially one large room with a separate bathroom.

The cottage has a complete kitchen with full sized fridge, stove and a microwave. We didn't cook meals at the cottage but it does have dishes, glasses and utensils. No dishwasher but you don't really need one. The beds are comfortable and come with lots of warm bedding and pillows. The television and DVD player were great and the kids liked watching movies just before bed. The bathroom in The Pines is tight but clean and functional. It has a stand-up shower stall, two valve toilet & sink with vanity. It's actually more than you might expect from a small cottage. The hot water tank is small so showers should be quick and to the point.

There are larger cottages on the property with separate bedrooms. I've never been inside them so I can't say what they're like. I'm sure they're similar to the one we stay at, which means well appointed and clean. The Minden House B&B & Cottages is the only place we stay at in Minden.

Again, thank-you for taking the time to post your (corrected) review of Minden House and for your positive comments. The Pines cottage is really designed for couples only, and had we been aware the children would be staying in the unit with you (and not with their grandmother) we would have recommended one of the two-bedroom units for your visit. FYI the small hot water tank has now been fitted with a thermostatic mixing valve so now there is plenty of hot water for normal showers, however we still recommend this unit for no more than three occupants

Thanks to all who have posted reviews here and on other similar sites
