Very nice place, and nice clean rooms. The hosts are lovely and they make you a fantastic breakfast. The B&B is located close to Algonquin Park, a must to visit this beautiful park. If you have some spare time, make sure you visit Robinson’s General Store in Dorset. What we call in Dutch: de winkel van Sinkel. Fantastic!

We just spent a relaxing weekend at the Bread and Butter Inn -- a beautiful home, set on a beautiful property, surrounded by nature. The hosts Beatte and Lothar are wonderful people, so extremely welcoming and helpful. There is nothing that we would change about this BnB. We have been fortunate enough to stay in some very nice places over the years, and the Bread and Butter Inn is right up there -- absolutely first rate. ~mike & becky

We had a wonderful couples weekend away. The hospitality was exceptional and the breakfast was delicious!! We had an amazing time with our friends on the atv trails near by as well as our social time at the inn. We were very pleased, that we have already booked our weekend for next year. Thank you again for a great weekend!

We just returned from a 3-night stay at the Bread and Butter Inn, and we have nothing but good things to say about our experience. Beate and Lothar were extremely friendly and hospitable. Our room was very nice and clean, and our bed was super comfortable! The breakfasts were all very tasty - would definitely recommend the pancakes and the eggs benedict! We also purchased an additional dinner at the B&B, which was equally exceptional. We will definitely be back!!

Beate and Lothar go out of their way to provide an exceptional experience at the Bread and Butter Inn. From the moment we reserved our room, Beate was available to answer any questions we might have with a friendly and gentle manner. She and her husband Lothar are perhaps the kindest hosts we have ever met and we felt like we were staying with family. The house itself is breathtaking both inside and out with lovely decorative touches and a home-away-from-home feel. You can see Beate's gorgeous taste shine through the entire house. Our ensuite room was lovely, overlooking the garden and it was very tranquil. Beate provides some nice extras in the washroom such as wipes and a hairdryer which were greatly appreciated. The breakfast was "Michelin Star" quality was a selection of choices on the menu. We had our breakfast overlooking the garden each morning. There are great spots for adventure in the local area. We visited Huntsville, Dwight Beach and hiked in Algonquin. My only complaint was that I couldn't stay for longer!

Labour Day weekend 2020. My Lady and I had ridden 180 miles on our motorcycles to the outskirts of Algonquin Park for the weekend, only to find out our reservations, on my credit card, at a motel I won't name, never kept them! Claimed they didn't even have them! After calling around, the owners at Bread And Butter said if we couldn't find anywhere else (on a long weekend!!), they had a pullout couch we could sleep on in the office. Shortly after, we took them up on it. Turned out to be a miracle! Ya, it was a pull out couch (which was in a den/office so it was nice!), so we didn't get to use the rooms, but the hospitality and awesome meals more than made uip for it! Beate and Lothar made us feel like we were with family through their friendly personalities and hospitality. Their friend and cook, whose name escapes me, provided both a 5 star dinner and breakfast! We got in around 9pm, and because the family who wasn't going to eat but were now hungry, and the other couple that showed up late were all hungry, Beate decided to offer us all a late dinner. Chicken breast you could cut with a spoon, roasted baby potatoes and 5 or 6 fresh veggies blew my mind. Breakfast was a combination of meat lovers and healthy alternatives combined. I would not hesitate to stay here again! It was well worth it!!!

We have just returned from 2 nights at the Bread and Butter Inn. The B&B is just lovely. Very clean. The room was very comfortable. Beate and Lochnar were great hosts. They could not do enough for you. Breakfasts were great. We even stayed for 2 dinners which were tasty and great value. The photos do not do this place justice.

Gorgeous views from every angle, sparkling clean and modernized bathrooms (includes a 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner, a body soap, as well as hand soap and lotion bottles by the sink), a very comfort filled environment with the fluffiest pillows that ensures you sleep like a baby! Beate, Lothar, and Lily treated us like there own children and constantly checked in to see how we were, and where we were exploring and gave us advice since we had never been to Dorset before and we had the absolute best time of our lives! But I would have to say, one of the absolute best parts of The Bread And Butter B&B was the breakfast. The variety, the quality, everything was always exceeding our expectations every single time we sat down to eat, it was definitely our experience of heaven on earth! Another one of the best parts is that the incredible hosts would always do whatever they could to accommodate to our wishes(for example, one evening we asked if we could have a fire outside and it was ready for us within a blink of an eye!). We will definitely make our trip to The Bread And Butter B&B annual!

The house was beautiful, as were the gardens, the rooms well appointed, clean and welcoming, our hosts friendly and accommodating, and the breakfasts wonderful. Perhaps the greatest part was that Beate and her colleagues were friendly, gracious hosts, and would do whatever they could to accommodate our wishes. Bread and Butter is a B&B, not an inn, so it does not provide full meal service, but, if asked and if they could, then they would provide lunch or dinner. We had lunch for two , and dinner for seven (including three small children)---the food was made as requested in advance, wonderfully prepared, and reasonably priced. This makes it also the best restaurant in the area. We will be back.

Just spectacular! Stayed here for a couple nights on a trip to Algonquin. Everything is sparkling clean (bathroom, shower, bedroom), the rooms outfitted wonderfully, the breakfast the absolute best! Beate & Lothar were incredible hosts, responsive to all needs and requests, going the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable. Great value! If anything, our stay here (and the breakfasts) were the highlight of the trip!
