We've been attending the Shaw Festival every August since 2004, but our first and favorite BnB was sold and returned to a private residence a in 2007. So we've been searching for the perfect replacement ever since, and my "average" rating for this property this year is based on comparison with 4 or 5 other BnBs in NOTL. Pam was a very pleasant hostess this year at Finlay House, and, I noticed, she was very accommodating to some other guests' special dietary requirements.
We had stayed at Finlay House in 2011 (under different ownership) and enjoyed the location and breakfasts and general ambiance enough to return this year. I was disappointed that coffee was no longer available downstairs before the 9 am breakfast. This is the first BnB I've stayed in up there that did not have either a coffeepot in the room or coffee available in the dining room for those of us who wake early.
Everything was still neat and clean,and the twin beds very comfortable. Breakfasts were well-cooked and nutritious, but not as outstanding as others we've been served in NOTL.
Also, since I'm being pretty picky, more than one small towel rod in the bathroom would have been handy (instead of a ladder in the bedroom)--maybe even an extra shelf for toiletries, since obviously two people would be sharing the fairly small bathroom.
