“BEST B&B EVER!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stay at Between the Maples for two nights. Having read all the excellent reviews prior to arriving, we knew we were going to be in good hands.

We stayed in the Red Maple Room and it was spacious enough for the two of us. The room was flawless! Everything was incredibly clean, the linens smelled of lavender, Lindor chocolates laid out on the dresser, bathrobes and slippers in the closet and the bathroom was immaculate!

Each morning, Gord and Maggi provided us with fruit juices, coffee, fresh fruit salad (from their own garden) and home-made baked goods (varies depending on the season). Everything was magnificent and oh, so delicious!

Gord and Maggi's attention to details really made our stay magical. From the tasty treats laid out each afternoon, to the well-stocked fridge downstairs (lemonade, water and juice), to the beautifully cared-for rooms. They were even nice enough to provide us with various maps and tourist information upon our arrival, which helped us decide what activities to do while we were in Owen Sound.

It's about an one-hour drive from Gord and Maggi to Tobermory for those who are interested in going to the Grotto!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you Gord and Maggi. We are DEFINITELY coming back!

Thank you for the wonderful review of what we offer at Between The Maples.
It will be our challenge to maintain the level of service that you enjoyed.

It was a delight to host this young couple who was eager to explore the natural wonders of the Bruce Peninsula. They however only had time for a taste. It could take a week or longer to visit all the different outdoor sites and see a small portion of the Bruce Trail traversing both counties.The city, town & county tourism offices in both Grey & Bruce do a great job in providing all the information we need to help each visitors enjoy what they select to encounter.

We spent a long weekend enjoying the offerings of Owen Sound and couldn't have been in better hands! Maggie and Gord are great hosts. Our check-in time was flexible (arranged ahead), our bedroom was comfortable, clean and well appointed. We appreciated the availability of the fridge (stocked with lemonade and water, but with room for our own goodies too). Maggie provided us with beverages and treats each afternoon.

Breakfast was great! She is willing to accommodate a variety of food restrictions and still provide a tasty, bountiful breakfast. Each day our breakfast was different but included fruit, yogurt and a hot entree with toast and bacon or sausages. Didn't need to eat till late afternoon!

We spent time on the front porch with a glass of wine / beer each afternoon watching the sailboats on the bay and enjoying the gentle breeze. Ah...a little piece of heaven. Thanks so much for a warm welcome and great stay. See you next year!

Thank you for your great review and we were happy to be your hosts. See you next summer.

We really enjoy our returning guests who appreciate the full hot breakfast and the variety we try to present. At this time of the year many of the items on the table are from our garden. We also like to surprise our guests with treats in the evening.
On the hot days the front gazebo is the place to be to relax or even catch a short nap. We built the gazebo to enable guests to enjoy the view. There is even light if you wish to read after dark.

I know they will be back because they have already booked for next summer.

Thank you for your review of our B&B. We look forward to our guests returning and the breakfast conversation which is always so interesting for us. We never know what we are going to learn from people from all walks of life.

It is always great to meet guests who have never been at a B&B before. It gives us chance to show them the differences and talk about how to get the best experience in their future travels. Maggi tries to ensure a good variety of breakfast for those who stay for a longer period. It is great to hear how well they slept. We bought good quality mattresses to assure a good experience for our guests. We hope to see them again when they can enjoy the summer gazebo.

my family and i recently had to return to my parents hometown due to a death in the family our house was packed with so many of us children and grandchildren returning home on a last minute notice,and our local hotel we usually stayed at was booked stayed with Maggie and Gord owners of between the maples after reading an online review while desperatly searching for a place that would also take our young daughter. gord and maggie fully understood our situation, they made every effort to make our breif stay with them as comforting and inviting as we were at our own home my daughter instantly took to maggie and gords warm and welcoming nature. although our hours were often late due to our cercumstances maggie always had coffee or whatever we required on hand. we spent long hours chatting with our hosts and getting to know each other a bit. maggies meals we excellent and her qiches were over the top thanks maggie, and when my daughter acciedently left a item at the B&B i was unaware of it but four days later our post man delivered a card address to our daugher with her precious necklace she was as excited getting her own mail as she was for the return of her lost necklace.we will hopefully be returning agian this summer to between the maples i would gladly recremend the B&B as a place to stay if you looking for a home like atmosphere thats quite and peacefull and located close to many of west Greys attractions and events.

We certainly enjoy our discussions with all our guests. It is exciting to learn where life's journey has taken them thus far. Their daughter was a very mature 4 year old who was a delight to have around. Serving our guests beyond their expectations is our pleasure. We look forward to winter guests returning in the summertime when the flower gardens and trees present an entirely different view from the gazebo facing Georgian Bay.

What a warm, inviting home environment for our 7 night stay. Maggie and Gord provided every comfort required. The breakfasts were completely delicious. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have picked Gord and Maggie's B & B. They provided us with wonderful information about Owen Sound, and the surrounding area, and helped us determine a good fit for our retirement years. B & B also means treats at night - Thank you so much for your hospitality - we enjoyed our stay and morning conversations immensly.

Each morning we looked forward to hearing about where our guests had visited and their impressions of the town and amenities. It gave us a chance to learn about areas further a field from the Owen Sound region. Hopefully we will see them again once they retire to the area.
