My partner and I stayed one night at this B&B at the last minute while driving though cottage country. The location is perfect: right on the shores of Muskoka Lake, with a beautiful view, accessible swimming, firepit, and many comfy chairs to lounge around in for the day or night. The B&B is close to Gravenhurst, so you could easily go in for dinner or to shop. The hosts have an adorable cat named Calvin who is very friendly and likes to cuddle.
We stayed upstairs in one of the loft rooms. The room was small but fairly comfortable and very clean. I would recommend the master suite on the main floor which has a private bath and walkout to the deck with a gorgeous view of the lake. The two upstairs rooms have a shared bathroom with no view of the lake, and are a little on the small side for me.
Breakfast in the morning was delicious: lots of options, great coffee, and not rushed. We stayed and chatted with our hosts and the other guests, without feeling like we needed to leave. As a vegetarian, I sometimes feel that I don't have many options when I go out to eat, but our hosts had lots of variety on the menu and I had a great breakfast.
I would recommend this B&B for a quiet couple who enjoys an early evening and some nice company of friendly hosts. The common areas are shared by all which was a little too close for me, but that is really what a B&B is all about. It is very quiet, so if you are looking for a way to disconnect for a couple days, this is your place! No TV, DVD, or internet makes for a nice, quiet night. It was a very relaxing stay at a reasonable price.
