No complaints here...a quiet, well kept home away from home, in a beautiful woodland setting. We loved the breakfast, eggs, bacon, toast, coffee...complete with delicious honey and maple syrup, both made by the bees and trees on site! We'll certainly return to Ridgmoor if the occasion arises.

Ridgemoor is situated in a lovely rural location and has spacious rooms, furnished to an excellent standard. The games room was also of a high quality and the swimming pool is superb. Above all, our host was extremely accommodating, very friendly, and a great chef!

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. It was a pleasure having your family stay here for the wedding. GLAD YOU AND YOUR BROTHER MADE USE OF THE POOL TABLE AND SHUFFLEBOARD. The pool and hot tub get closed after this weekend. Enjoy another year of school and thanks again for the glowing review. cheers, Bill

The room was comfortable, quiet, clean and is right on the route for the new Greenbelt Bike trail. We had a great breakfast. Bill is a fine cook and sat down to chat with us during the meal. He is very knowledgable about the area. I'd recommend it.

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. You were the first cyclists riding the Greenbelt Trail to stay here. Glad your expectations were met for the most part. Breakfast conversation expanded my insight into long term care beds in Ontario. There must be a lot of pressure in that job. Cycle Safe. cheers, Bill

The difference of staying at Ridgemoor is apparent from the approach to the house on the wooded drive. This is going to be an experience unlike most other stays at hotels, B&B's, and hostels--this is as if one were returning home. The proprietor, Bill, is pleased to welcome the prodigal and (re)introduce the home and its amenities (such as a small kitchen for community use, a sitting room on the ground/first floor and a utility room on the first/second floor). I stayed 2 nights this past week (mid-August). The WiFi worked well in the room (BYS--Back Yard Scene), though I wasn't trying to stream live videos; the shower was warm and spacious, the bed comfortable, the bedroom area rugs thick and cushiony; there was plenty of closet and dresser space to unpack the luggage and really feel like home. The breakfasts were amazing with local honey, syrup, and homemade jams. The fruit bowl (yoghurt available) offered delicious variety and the main course offered variety and was filling. Conversation is also served up at breakfast and is the savory to the meal. I didn't get the opportunity to use the pool, but did see that it was enclosed in screening, so despite the woodsy surroundings, bugs should not bother swimmers. A walk in the woods is possible with a number of paths available--or just sitting on the broad front porch or the patio in the back and experiencing nature without the hustle and bustle of everyday life would make a quiet stay complete. This seclusion was available 5 minutes from the 403. Thank you Bill; when I am next in the area, I will check with you for availability.

Thanks for taking the time to post this review.I'm glad you appreciated the homey feel to Ridgemoor because that is exactly what we strive for. Afterall, we built the home after clearing the land in1982 and raised our family here. The maple syrup and honey coming off the property are unique to a B&B. I also, enjoyed the morning conversation. Old Java is still hanging on. cheers, Bill

We've just returned from staying at Ridgemoor BnB for 4 nights for a wedding in nearby Ancaster and what a gem it is. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed and were made to feel incredibly welcome by host Bill. Our room was very spacious, immacutely clean with our own private bathroom. Breakfasts were fantastic incorporating fresh fruit, yoghurts, malt loaf and cooked dishes from eggs and bacon to French toast made fresh by Bill - all were delicious. We hope to return to Ancaster soon and will definitely choose Ridgemoor BnB.

Thanks for the review. Hope you enjoyed your time in Ontario, It's a big place. You were exceptional guests and I must say stripping the beds and gathering up the towels was appreciated but unexpected. I guess you are safely back in Coventry and I'm glad you included Ridgemoor B&B in your visit to Canada, cheers, Bill

Ridgemoor has been my "home away from home" for several years now when I return to my hometown of Ancaster. Bill is a wonderful host ... be sure to try the maple syrup made from his trees and the honey made from his bees! The setting of the house in the deep woods cannot be beat. Everything about Ridgemoor is great.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review.Although I've had several returning guests you've stayed here the most times. 7 I think. Ancaster is certainly undergoing a lot of growth and expansion; 4 square km north of Garner road and south of 403 alone! You may not recognize the old stomping grounds next year.But it's still real quiet here in the woodlot. Thanks again. cheers, Bill

My second time to Ridgemore. Loved it so much brought my mom a second time. We had had a great stay. Lovely visit, beautiful and filling breakfasts with homemade jams. Spacious and comfortable bed, big bathroom and tub. Grounds are great for and nature hike. Big deep pool and hot tub to unwind. Minutes from historic Ancaster Village and no Dundas and did a stone's throw from Hamilton.

Thanks for the prompt review. It was a pleasure seeing you again. Your Mom is quite the character. I enjoyed meeting her. You got around to quite a few venues while you stayed here. We are fortunate to be so central to all the golden horseshoe offers. hope you're winners with the 649 tickets. cheers, Bill

This is a quiet property with 3 very large bedrooms. One bedroom has an attached bath and the two have separate bathrooms on the same floor with access through a corridor. All bedrooms are on the first floor and well-appointed. Thought it had free wifi the speed was poor. The location is equidistant from Toronto and Niagara Falls and so is very convenient. the city of Ancaster has several good restaurants. The host is very pleasant and enjoyed conversations with him. The only reasons for the four-star rating are the breakfast and wifi speed. BF is adequate but not stellar compared to other B&Bs we have been to. But then food is a matter of taste. I will encourage you to try this place and decide for yourself. Please note that the property is up for sale.

Thank-you for taking the time to submit this review. I enjoyed finding out more about India, especially its languages. Let me clarify a couple of points. All the bedrooms are on the second floor of our house (14 steps up). I bedroom has a 4 piece ensuite and the other 2 bedrooms have private 4 piece baths each accessed from the main upstairs hallway and in close proximity to the bedroom. I agree the wifi is intermitantly slow. We have no trouble with e-mails but streaming movies and large files are a problem. As for the breakfasts, they are simple and generous. Tea/coffee, fresh fruit, orange juice, malt bread,honey and maple syrup from the property, yogurt with every breakfast and a hot prepared entrée of eggs or French toast or pancakes with bacon. Unforunately it did not meet your expectations. cheers, Bill

This b and b is a gem!! On acres of farmland, with picturesque pond and gardens, great outdoor pool, and spacious rooms. It was better than going to Muskoka lakes!! Bill Bell, the proprietor and his wife were more than accommodating. When I wanted to swim at 6:00 AM before I left, Bill got up and opened the pool for me. They are very generous with their breakfasts, too!

Thanks for the review Susan. The pool got some more use this weekend (aside from the grandkids) and has been 75F for the past couple of days. Ours is a simple but comfortable B&B and we try to treat our guests the way we would like to be treated. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the rest of the holiday. You would be welcome back anytime. cheers, Bill

My stay was fantastic. Bill greeted me personally when I arrived and gave me a thorough tour. Everything I could possibly need was there. My room was huge, as was the walk-in shower. The property is very private so that provided me with wonderful sleep in a comfy bed. The best part of my stay was the breakfast and conversation with Bill in the mornings. He's an excellent host with many talents in the kitchen! He shared some of his local honey, maple syrup and his wife's delicious raspberry jam. I hope to return again and will most definitely ask to stay. All the best :)

Thanks for this review.Although Ridgemoor is a simple B&B it does offer a few unique features like the location in the woodlot,and the maple syrup and honey produced on the property. The new geothermal cooling unit is in operation now but no real hot muggy weather yet to test it out. This cool, wet weather sure makes the grass grow. I enjoyed meeting you, welcome back anytime. cheers, Bill
