I was impressed with the quaint house. It has modern features but still kept the charm of an older house. Location is hard to beat, right in the heart of Gravenhurst in walking distance to everything, including the lake (20 min walk). Breakfast was very good and offered variety. Host is very accommodating and helping out with any questions.

Jen could not have been more welcoming. The house is beautiful. Rooms really well equipped and lovely and warm. Jen recommended a wild trail as we wanted to get off the beaten track. Perfect. No sound of cars, no sound but us. Gravenhust just is a gem. Visit Sawdust city. Oar and paddle. A must visit. But stay at inn...

Amazing weekend getaway! B&B was clean, cozy, and accommodating. Jen is a wonderful hostess. We enjoyed Gravenhurst in the Autumn. The inn is within walking distance to the wharf, restaurants, and the brewery. There is great hiking nearby. We will be returning soon. K&M

My second time staying here. I was in the Algonquin room this time. Jenn has thought of everything possibly needed or wanted from the bedroom and en suite bath plus sitting room to the shared coffee/tea fridge available to all guests and a guest lounge too. She had walking, hiking, and dinner suggestions, too. Some street noise from local traffic...

This Inn is on Bay Street, that is a trough street with much traffic and consequently noisy when the windows are open. Parking is easy behind the Inn. The big bed was great but the sofa bed was not, even for a 12 year old. The bathroom was a bit small but functional and clean. Lots of plug-ins and WiFi...

My Mum and me have stayed here for two nights and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The lovely owner, Jen, greeted us when we arrived and was super lovely and chatty. She immediately got a map out to show us where to go and told us some good recommendations of restaurants. We advised that we were going to Algonquin Park and...

Jenn was so friendly, arrived on a cool afternoon so of course the tea and homemade cookies hit the spot. Comfortable room and a good breakfast. Always enjoy my fresh fruit and it was waiting. Close to attractions and could have walked to the Sequin for our cruise if the weather was more inivting.
