“Wonderful and welcoming”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

My daughter and I spent Mother's Day weekend (May 2014) at Green Woods Inn and were absolutely amazed by the warmth and graciousness of our hosts, Tessa and Nigel. The food was outstanding and my daughter, who is vegan was treated to a special menu which met all her needs. As their web site states, we had a savoury breakfast one morning and a sweet breakfast the following morning. Tessa pays close attention to little touches, such as a pansy on top of the fruit cup, which made our stay al the more special. The Inn is lovely, the rooms well appointed and our room (the Linden) was spacious, airy and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together, and very much appreciated being so warmly welcomed by our hosts. The Inn is well situated on Highway 15, just 5 minutes from downtown Kingston. It is also handy for travelling to Westport and other lakes in the area. We would definitely come back again.

Found this wonderful B&B on Highway 15 in Kingston. Tessa and Nigel that own it are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are spotless with every comfort you could want, comfy beds with beautiful cotton sheets, soft pillows and fluffy towels. First time to Kingston so they gave us all the information we needed to see everything whilst we there. The breakfasts were divine and different each day - highlight of the stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are individually furnished in a quintessentially English style. Good location to explore K...

This is our third year to visit the Inn on our anniversary. It is a very special place for the love of my life We have become attached to Nigel and Tessa and look at them as really good friends. The beds are as soft as a cloud. The rooms are impeccable. The breakfast is to die for. We will continue to return each year in September as long as we can. I as for flowers in the room and they are always so beautiful.

I stayed for one week at Greenwoods Inn and would highly recommend this charming, friendly 'home from home'. Nigel and Tessa are perfect hosts, being ready always to advise on things to see and do in Kingston, only 5 mins drive away, and the beautiful Thousand Islands. There is a relaxed atmosphere here that immediately puts you at your ease. My room, Ash, was very comfortable and I was able to open both windows, on two aspects, for fresh air and on the chillier nights the heating was efficient. The sunsets seen over the large garden at the back were spectacular. I have left the best till last....the breakfasts were truly delicious, copious but I never felt over-faced. It was reassuring to hear where the fruit, bread etc. had been sourced and the crab apple jelly and herbs were from the garden. A large selection of teas is available. The breakfasts were never repeated the whole week I was there. Thank you Tessa and Nigel for a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We stayed at the Inn just after Labor Day with another couple and had the place to ourselves. Nigel and Tessa could not have been more welcoming or more gracious hosts and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. When one of our party did not want the fabulous breakfast of eggs benedict one more, they inquired what he did want and the next day made sure to have precisely what he was looking for. They also ffered excellent suggestions on things to do and even took the liberty to research possible destinations for us.

The Inn itself is meticulously maintained. The rooms are spotless and beautifully decorated and while the living room is not huge, it was a perfect spot to unwind with a cup of tea or coffee after a long day sightseeing and a delicious meal.

The Inn is located about seven minutes from downtown and even closer to Fort Henry. It can be difficult to locate at night so I would urge new guests to try to arrive in daylight.
