Previous TripAdvisor high ratings are spot on — warm, welcoming Victorian B&B with open concept large main floor set on a picturesque country setting; manicured lawns and pond. Family of 4 we all throughly enjoyed this B&B. Easy to get to from Toronto. Parking on premises. Easy drive to Port Perry for dinner or Lake Ontario for sand and beach (15 minutes).
Liz welcomed us smiling from her front porch at the pre-appointed time — lovely grand porch with porch swing, couches and small bistro tables! Very friendly, courteous when taking initial phone call for reservations; flexible; accommodating to our needs. After a great meet, greet, and inform, we were given front door key and then were free to unwind, relax and enjoy the space. Grand piano a plus to enjoy!
FOUR Bedrooms — Liz accommodated our needs upon arrival, letting us pick which room we wanted (no other guests has booked for that night). If you are mobility-challenged, the Bridal Suite (largest room) is the only room Main Floor.
2ND FLOOR - small common area reading nook and hallway access to 3 rooms. ROOM 1 - bright, pretty smaller room w/ Double Bed for a teenage daughter and large 4-piece ensuite bathroom. ROOM 2- Country charm suited 10 year old son, double ded, that adjoins to Room 1.
BRIDAL SUITE on main level comes with fireplace, jacuzzi and 2 sets of double doors that open to patio decked out with tables, chairs and view of green corn fields to the north. Private, very quiet location. Spacious! bright! Victorian decor, immaculate, well-appointed suite. Large 3-piece bathroom. Toiletries provided in pretty vanity boxes on counter. Plenty of closet space; mini-bar fridge with complimentary water bottles chilled upon arrival.
What we didn't expect — was to have access to the entire house. Owners, Liz and James reside in a separate house on the property. Even if other guests had stayed, the open concept main floor has plenty of nooks for those seeking conversation or alone time. Grand piano took centre stage. Both children opted to stay indoors just to play! Easy drive to Port Perry for dinner (Pickles & Olives Bistro excellent!!) or for sand and beach afternoon at Lake Ontario. Friendly dog on premises.
Having a business event early in the morning, Liz accommodated the time schedules for breakfast. Kids stayed behind and very comfortable playing piano, hunting for frogs or taking pictures. We loved it! Thank you, Liz and James, for treating us like family!!
