My husband and I spent two nights at The Moose B&B in October 2016 on our Ontario vacation to see the fall colours. We had booked the Sage Suite, but Debi upgraded us to the Lily Suite. The bedroom was quite small, but the ensuite was large and well-stocked with toiletries. We ordered our breakfast from a menu the night... More

The house has a hundred year of history, but nice, clean and cozy. The most impressive is the breakfast. The host really puts her warmth and effort into her cooking and touches the heart of her guests with great food. Thank you for your hospitality, Debi. Dennis and Emma

On all counts, this was a fabulous stay. The BnB was a beautiful tastefully done building, right on the water in a charming small village. The BnB grounds were so nice for walking around or hanging out, with canoeing options to enjoy the water. Our suite was equipped with many thoughtful details, such as books, throws, spa supplies, bath robes,... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Moose as part of a 10-day trip to Canada. It was the only B&B we stayed it (most of our trip was in hotels) but the room was huge and very well equipped (we were in the Birch Suite) and the breakfasts were delicious! Lots of choice and the pancakes, French toast, smoothies... More

Husband and I were blown away by the hospitality and fantastic accommodations. The host was welcoming and friendly, and the dog was beyond adorable.
