Great host, lovely accommodations on a quiet street, yummy breakfast. Loved the complimentary water, chocolate bar and nutritious snacks. The first Bed & Breakfast stay for the couple we were travelling with - they will definitely have to stay at many more to find a nicer B&B.

Imagine an atmosphere of calm wellbeing and then add in a gentle host who soon becomes a friend. How could you not love this place? We're... More

Our wedding anniversary is in mid December & we usually go to Niagara on the Lake, but this year we decided to see the Festival of Lights in Owen Sound, the "other end" of the escarpment.
