My girlfriend and I stayed here on July 14-15 with our friends (whom also wrote a review under the name Luv2travel0548). As mentioned below the accommodations were adequate and the natural aspects of the surrounding lakes were beautiful.
However, I am absolutely appalled by the ridiculous statements made by margden1 below regarding our "behaviour". I don't quite understand why a 29 year old surgical resident at sunnybrook hospital or his girlfriend who is a manager at a large corporation would be mockingly called "young professionals". I assure you that my friends and I carried ourselves with integrity and respect for others. In fact, the only night we met this couple was briefly for a minute or two on the 15th, where we actually sought shelter from the rain and sat quietly playing board games (where even a co owner of the B&B joined us).
Travelers be fair warned that Sally (owner/operator of the B&B) did indeed treat us like children. I sincerely believe that there was no need for my friends or myself to be babysat in any regard. We only sought out a relaxing getaway from the city and our otherwise hectic and very demanding lives. Rules and regulations for patrons' safety are one thing; however, what we experienced was truly disrespectful. We made every effort to comply to Sally's rules but surly did not deserve this kind of treatment. I did not pay to have Sally give me stern lectures regarding etiquette. We were never loud nor rude. We simply left 2 dishes (others were washed) to soak for 20 minutes as they were greasy from our BBQ lunch and were using a side entrance 3 minutes past 9pm not realizing that it was past 9 (this was a rule of the B&B as it was believed that bats would fly into the house past this time). Clearly these "mistakes" do not justify a PUBLIC REPRIMAND and i was shocked and humiliated to say the least.
Breakfast was well made, however i feel the portions were inadequate and on the small side. We were unable to find the all-day snacks that were mentioned by the reviewer below. The snacks we enjoyed were self supplied.
I would only recommend this B&B for its location and i sincerely hope that this review sheds some light to the obvious problems that need to be addressed.
