After reading the positive reviews about the Woodlawn Inn I was really looking forward to a romantic get-a-way with my husband for 2 nights.

We stayed at the Woodlawn Inn based on a recommendation from a colleague who lives in the area. The Inn is very deceiving from the outside, as it is quite spacious. Our room was large, clean, and had a small Juliet style balcony. Although our assigned room noted twin beds, the room had two (2) double beds, which was very...

This is a perfect stop after getting through Toronto area traffic. A beautiful B&B in a nice beach town. Elegant large rooms with a cozy bar. The restaurant is outstanding, well-priced, and the owners are lovely.

This is a wonderfully historic beautiful gem of a country inn in Cobourg, Ontario. Our first time staying here, was absolutely magnificent. The building originally built in 1835 is very special in decor and architecture. We had a perfect room for our one night stay.
