Green Woods Inn

Reviewed 25 October 2009

This was our second stay at Green Woods Inn which is a fine Bed and Breakfast hosted by thoughtful owners who serve an extravagantly sumptuous breakfast. They offer world-wide free telephone service, accept pets with some wise constraints, and take rightful pride in their home.

What a lovely experience. From the garden, to the decor & restored period features in the common areas, to the beautifully decorated guest rooms with their ultra comfortable beds & bed linens, to the mouth watering breakfasts prepared & presented by our gracious hosts, our stay(s) at Green Woods Inn exceeded our expectations. 2009 was our 2nd "Friends Reunion Weekend" at the Green Woods Inn & we've already agreed it will be where we stay for our 3rd, 4th etc..........

We stayed at the Greenwoods Inn just one night as part of our travels through Canada. Compared to our other B&B experiences, this was by far the best. The house is beautiful, located outside of Kingston but easily reachable by car. Our room was very cosy and quiet. Tessa and Nigel were very welcoming and helpful and breakfast was simply delicious (one of us is a vegetarian and this was no problem at all). We will definitely return here if we visit Kingston again.

My wife and I (along with our canine companion), had a wonderful stay at the historic Green Woods Inn. Nigel and Tessa are excellent hosts, with wonderful accommodations and breakfasts, and a wealth of local tourist information for the out-of-town traveler. Green Woods Inn is very well appointed and comfortable. We have come away rested and refreshed. Thank-you, Nigel and Tessa. We really enjoyed our stay with you.

Green Woods Inn is a lovely place to stay. The attention to detail by the owners is impeccable (special mattresses for bad backs and proper duvets that don't make allergies worse). The place is beautifully decorated and Tessa and Nigel really make you feel like you're at home. The only drawback is that it's along a main road a little out of town. The advantage of this is that it's easy to find, but we needed to get a taxi (although cheap) into the centre in the evening.

What a delightful stay! Everyone there that night had gone to the fabulous Leonard Cohen concert and he was the talk around the huge breakfast table next morning. The lovely, big Victorian home is a real "gem" of a B&B, with beautiful antique furnishings, large rooms and windows, immensely comfy beds and linens. well appointed private bathrooms, and everything immaculately clean, crisp, tidy and polished. It just doesn't get any better than this! (I wish home was as nice!) Anything you might want, is there! Breakfast was wonderfully tasty, with a pretty fruit plate, apple crepes and sausage, just-baked grain bread, various teas, unique preserves, all cooked and served by the gracious and welcoming hosts. We will definitely return when next we stay in Kingston. A real find!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for Valentine's day and it couldn't have felt more right. It was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, so we weren't sure what to expect. The Dearsleys, even before I booked, were both exceptionally enthusiastic about making the weekend a memorable one for us. Tessa offered great suggestions on how to make the stay romantic, and even went out of her way to arrange flowers to greet my girlfriend when we arrived.

Another key highlight was how carefully prepared the breakfasts were. I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of waking up early on the weekends, but I think you will for this breakfast. The Dearsleys are great cooks and take time in asking you what you prefer (both of us are vegetarians).

Kingston itself is a nice town, and a good escape from Toronto. The Dearsleys ensured that we knew what was happening in the city and offered to book reservations anywhere we wanted to go. The property is located about 12 minutes from the city, so it's out of the way enough to give you a countryside feel but also close enough for you to get to the city quickly.

Initially, I thought the downside to the property might be that there would be noise issues, considering it's an old house (and we're a young couple on valentine's day) but really, there were none. The rooms are very private, comfortable and clean.

I also had the misguided perception that bed and breakfasts were for old people. And since we're both fresh out of school, we weren't sure if most of the people we'd meet there would be older and unappreciative of us. But really, the people we met, including the Dearsleys, were terrific. As long as you're respectful (at breakfast and during your stay), others will treat you in kind. I'm not sure why this property isn't more highly rated for young couples, because I think it is a perfect and affordable escape for any age bracket.

Our first stay at a bed and breakfast was something we'll always remember. I know I'll be booking the Green Woods Inn again.
