We booked this trip as a getaway for my 41st birthday. Looking for something romantic and secluded, with activities close by. It ended up being the perfect spot. Brenda was a great host, she made us feel very welcome. Our room had a huge king size bed, two person jacuzzi tub and my favourite place was the solarium sun room,... More

I spent three nights at the Southbay Guesthouse in Sudbury while on a business trip to meet with a client in the area. The property is located well off the beaten path, not far from the Laurentian University campus, St. Joseph's Long Term Care and the new Medical Centre. Also close by is Science North, if you are interested in... More

The A1 Southbay Guesthouse provides a perfect location to use as a base to explore Sudbury and the surrounding region. Located on Lake Ramsey it has a perfect view of the lake and has lake access. Wonderful breakfasts and beautiful rooms, a great location.

We came to Sudbury from Montreal to visit family and friends. We had tried to book the Southbay Guest House 3 times prior and now we understand why it is always booked. It is a little piece of heaven in a beautiful setting. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves with lake view and enjoyed the large terrace. The larger... More

My boyfriend and I just came from a lovely weekend at Southbay Guesthouse. I can certainly see why they are rated #1 in the area. Brenda met us upon arrival and was so warm and pleasant-she immediately made us feel comfortable. I was concerned that we wouldn't be able to relax and have some private time, however it didn't take... More

We stayed at this B&B for a relaxing summer weekend. The location is amazing -- right on the lake with views out the back balcony/deck. Jose is a wonderful host, who worked hard to make sure everything was perfect for us. The breakfasts were amazing . . . our only complaint about them was that there was too much food.... More

We had a wonderful weekend at the Southbay Guesthouse. Jose was very welcoming and friendly and the suite was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and Jose accommodated my dietary restrictions.

Great alternative to a hotel. Jose is a welcoming host, making you feel right at home. The bedroom was very comfortable, and the view of the lake from the deck was just lovely. Very tranquil and peaceful. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of fresh fruit, and eggs made to order one day, and french toast the second day. Already planning... More
