Thank you, Judy and Glen Brough, for a wonderful 3-night stay at Lalor Estate, Dunnville, Ontario!
After reading the review by Janette Higgins, travel writer for the best B&Bs in Ontario, we decided to include this stop in our travels while vacationing in the area.
Upon arrival, high up the man lift, were Judy and Glen, restoring their 1905 historical estate. Smiles and a very friendly welcome — we were soon given a tour of the house and shown to our rooms.
We stayed in The Lalor Suite, largest of 4 rooms which was made very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 children (age 13, 8). Parents enjoyed the King Bed and Judy accommodated the children in our room by adding an extra queen bed — with fluffy robes and chocolates for them as well !! Our bedroom included additional living room area with TV; sunken sunroom for evening drinks; a private 4-piece bathroom. Plenty of fluffy white towels !!
Just as advertised, each guest room is "uniquely and beautifully appointed, offering fresh roses, fluffy robes, pillow-top matresses and turn down service"... yes, we enjoyed being pampered!!
For all 3 morning breakfasts, we were treated out on the wrap-around porch; decorated with beautiful floral urns and a warm summer view of mature trees and pretty landscaping. Friendly morning conversation with Judy or Glen was enjoyed by big and small.
Breakfast was 5-star!!
Presentation top notch — all of which the day prior, Judy would inquire if we would prefer and enjoy this selection or that for our breakfast. Knowing what was to come,the kids definitely made their way down on time; always made to feel welcome even if the parents had not yet arrived at the table.
Breakfast items included freshly baked croissants, egg souffle, pancakes with blueberries, seasonal fruits and crème fraiche, scrambled eggs, farmers ham and sausages — so delicious!! A different menu everyday!
Looking for a place to eat or swim, they would offer their recommendation — again, something that suited each of us.
We would recommend Lalor Estate to any one looking for an intimate setting with
attention to the details... from our breakfast meals to our rooms. Judy and Glen are gracious hosts — always courteous, kind, and pleasant each day of our stay!
