The Creighton Manor is a beautiful old house built in 1890 by a sea captain. He found peace in this quiet area of Orillia while still being able to keep his eyes on the water - Lake Couchiching glitters just across the street. We were able to reserve the "Captain's Quarters," a luxurious room on the second floor. There is a magnificent old press which, among other things, houses the TV, there are some lovely antique night tables and a beautiful chest of drawers sitting in a specially lit niche. A delicate table is flanked by two leather chairs and electric candles are sitting on the window sills. The pièce de résistance, however, is the bed: queen sized, stuffed with all sorts of pillows and a mattress so high that I had to take a flying leap to get up on it! There was a ladder, to be sure, by the side of the bed, but I was too proud to use it.
The Captain's Quarters actually consist of two rooms because the bathroom is so big that you can dance in it. You can choose between an old-fashioned bath tub on legs and a very modern and comfortable shower cabinet. A beautiful gypsy doll dressed in velvet and lace rides a bicycle which carries extra toilet paper for you, and the electric fireplace adds a flickering romantic light to this unusual bathroom.
Since the weather was very warm, we had breakfast on the veranda, and what a breakfast it was! Orange juice in delicate champagne glasses, fruit cocktail, poached egg on ham, toast and a special cake for dessert. The coffee came in our own big bodum. Levada and Doug are wonderful hosts, helpful, friendly and with a great sense of humour. In the entrance hall a small chef holds up a sign which says: "Street girls bringing in sailors must pay for room in advance."
