“Exceptional B & B!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

From the moment we arrived the hospitality was unlike any other I have experienced. We had two days of complete relaxation. The Johnson family was very accommodating and the B & B itself was exquisite. The Birch Suite was super luxurious and I'm still dreaming about Debi's yummy blueberry muffins. The little town of Dorset was lovely to stroll through, the people were warm and welcoming. The Moose is the B & B we will return to again and again!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are outfitted beautifully!!

Had a relaxing and enjoyable time this weekend at the Moose B&B. The rooms were exceptionally clean with a super comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Sitting on the deck watching the boats go by was relaxing plus, plus, plus. Beyond expectations was having a fantastic breakfast on the deck overlooking the water. Would definitely recommend the Moose B&B.

We just got home from the most relaxing and enjoyable time away without kids at the Moose B&B. Absolutely everything was excellent and the Johnson family made us feel very welcome. My favourite memories are the quiet time on the dock and the sumptuous eggs Benedict for breakfast.

Let me start off by saying: all the positive reviews that I read about the Moose B&B on TripAdvisor couldn’t have been truer!

My family and I (the five of us) had a wonderful time during our stay! We rented out all three rooms for two nights during the Easter weekend. The rooms were super clean, modern and I loved how they were decorated. My favourite was the Birch suite. But the breakfast was probably the best part of it all. There were so many options and you could pick as many things as you wanted. I would recommend the granola with fresh fruit and the mixed fruit smoothie – they were both so delicious!

Debi and her husband were also terrific hosts! Debi gave us recommendations about the various restaurants in the area and even printed out menus for us. She really went above and beyond.

Likewise, I found that the location of the B&B was ideal. It’s in the Dorset area which is nice and quiet, and especially great if you want to relax. But at the same, the B&B is just a short drive to Huntsville (around a 25 min), which is a bit busier and has a lot of restaurants to choose from for lunch/dinner. As well, Algonquin Park is nearby (around a 30 min drive).

Overall, it's an excellent place to go if you're looking to have a nice weekend away from the city.

PS. Make sure to check out the dock. It’s definitely picturesque! 

We had a wonderful stay at The Moose in Dorset. Hosts Debi and Kel were very welcoming and their dog Rolo was a great little character. We stayed in the Lily suite which was very comfortable with a lovely big bathroom. The house itself is beautifully appointed and in such a peaceful setting, it was wonderful to not hear any sounds at night which is a real break from city life.
The breakfast was amazing and gave us the fuel we needed to get on with our day. We felt so comfortable there that we would definitely stay again. Next time we would choose the larger suite with the king size bed. Definitely recommend a stay at The Moose.

Debbie greeted us warmly and things got better from there! Our suite was fabulous. We could see our cottage from the living room! Plus the suite was immaculate and decorated with a cozy country theme.
After a great night's sleep, Debbie prepared a delicious feast for breakfast!! Then we were on our way for the day. We had 2 great nights at the Moose, would love to do it again!

Everything about the Moose B&B great. The B&B itself, the friendly hosts, and the gorgeous little down it is at. We loved staying there the night while visiting Algonquin. Debbie, her husband and their daughter were so friendly. We almost felt like we were saying at our friends's house. The breakfast was another hit, they had so many options to choose from. If your planning to stay there, you much see the old fire tower which is now a look out tower offering a picturesque view of the area.
