We had the pleasure of spending five days with Leslie and Bob at their charming B&B in Harrow, Ontario. A short drive to many quaint small towns and lovely wineries, their place is a very relaxing country oasis.

Our rooms in the 120 year old farmhouse were clean, spacious and well appointed. The beds were extremely comfortable and the whole place is nicely air-conditioned… which we appreciated during the recent heatwave. We spent a lot of time in their pool, which was super clean, refreshing and well-maintained. They have a beautiful property with pretty gardens and a glorious view of the stars at night.

The highlight of our stay was definitely the food. Each morning, Leslie surprises you with a selection of homemade scones, biscuits and/or cinnamon buns and a wide variety of hot dishes, all showcasing local produce. We often ate outside, overlooking their pretty koi pond. They also offer charcuterie platters and a gourmet dinner (with advance notice.)

Leslie and Bob were helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable during our stay. They’ve only been open a year, but I have no doubt that Walnut Grove will have many repeat visitors.

My husband and I and another couple stayed at Walnut Grove at the end of July. It was a truly enjoyable and relaxing experience. We were greeted by Leslie, who showed us around the property. Afterwards we were offered a glass of wine as a welcome treat. We elected to have dinner at WG and so Leslie and Bob set a beautiful table and we were offered a choice of three options-- chicken, steak or pasta. Each meal came with a salad and desert. Each course is paired with a local wine. Leslie is a sommelier. The meals were excellent. There are three rooms at WG. One room downstairs and two rooms upstairs. We stayed upstairs in the room called In the Woods. The room downstairs is a bit larger than the two rooms upstairs. I did not see the room downstairs as another couple was occupying that room but I saw our friends room and both rooms are very nicely decorated and have everything you will need and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was very good as well. The hot sticky buns were to die for. Leslie makes a point of telling you where all of her food comes from, most of it is local or even grown on the farm where WG sits. The grounds are beautiful. There is a sitting area near a small pond full of koi fish and a very nice inground pool. You are close to several of Essex County's many wineries and close to Kingsville as well which has very good shopping and restaurants. This place does not disappoint.

First post pandemic night away am so happy that I stayed here. From the warm welcome to the final farewell everything was fabulous. Bob and Leslie are so passionate about this property and it’s amazing what they have done to this place.

Charming home lovingly beautifully restored and the beds so so comfy beautiful bedding perfect pillows I had an amazing sleep in the Sprocket Suite. No issues with noise as it’s on the main floor perfect sleep. The room has a mini fridge with a chilled wine cooler and microwave and a small dining set. Bathroom was large with a bathtub .Was perfect everything nicely appointed.

We ordered a small charcuterie which was again fabulous. Our breakfast made by Leslie rivals anything I have had anywhere. Locally sourced beautiful presentation and her scones were divine!

Was great to enjoy the pool chat and chill by the koi pond so so pretty and unwind. Nice trails to the meadow area and close to wine country. Definitely would recommend a stay here!!

Thanks Bob And Leslie your passion for this shows in everything you touch here.

Leslie and Bob,

Our stay at the Walnut Grove Bed & Breakfast was unforgettable. We set our looking for a relaxing get away and we found a home away from home. We’re truly thankful to the owners, Bob and Leslie, who made our getaway simply perfect! The service was above and beyond, and despite having a last minute booking, everything went smoothly and we felt cared for throughout our entire stay. To Bob and Leslie, your dedication and attention to detail really enhanced our stay and all your hard work decorating and working on the property really shows and it made our vacation perfect. We loved our room, the amenities, the food and your hospitality. Thank you Bob, Leslie, Phoebe and Riley for sharing your home with us - We’ll definitely be back

My wife and I stayed at the Walnut Grove for our 1 year anniversary. Bob and Leslie made sure it was just as special as our wedding day. They went above and beyond on every little detail from the fresh in season produce used for our meals to the fresh picked flowers and decor throughout the house. Their attention to detail made our stay so personalized and special. The Multiple areas for sitting and enjoying made the weekend feel like it was an endless adventure. I can't wait to return as they are always expanding and improving their property.

If you ever want to feel pampered and well cared for this is where you need to go. Bob and Leslie are amazing hosts and their dedication to your enjoyment is unparalleled. Every single moment of our stay was amazing. The rooms are so comfortable, and thoughtfully and creatively decorated. Breakfast was served outdoors by the koi pond and we enjoyed two of them. For our second outdoor breakfast the weather was just a little chillier than it had been and we came out to Bob setting up our table next to a fire and Leslie bringing us blankets to ensure we were warm enough. So very considerate and attentive! We added a Candlelight Dinner to our visit and we were blown away by our experience. Dinner is served in the most charming building in the forest with music playing and dancing encouraged. Each course is absolutely delicious and accompanied by a perfect wine chosen by Leslie. The setting was so restful and romantic and we definitely felt like honoured guests. The Charcuterie board we ordered was enjoyed in one of their lovely outdoor spaces after spending time relaxing in their pool. Their pets are so affectionate and we enjoyed spending time with them. Leslie and Bob are true ambassadors of the region and are happy to offer travel trips to enhance your visit. We are definitely planning to return again and again!

Walnut Grove is a renovated quaint old farmhouse on 10 acres of land in the middle of wine country and close to many other attractions. You can relax while sitting under the pergola with the fireplace on, watching the koi nibbling on water plants in the nearby pond. Or you can walk through the garden, meadow, maple, and walnut grove followed by a lovely dip in the heated swimming pool. We had a beautiful message in their barn conversion listening to music with the accompanying sounds of the local birds. Leslie and Bob serve a scrumptious breakfast, which features produce from their garden, maple and walnut syrup from their own trees and locally sourced foods the was superb. Leslie is also a sommelier at a local winery, so is very knowledgeable regarding local tours and wines. Lastly, you can arrange dinner in a variety of settings: the sugar shack, the meadow, the garden….

We had an amazing stay at the Walnut Grove B&B, where Lesley and Bob have created a gorgeous oasis in the middle of Essex wine country. They serve an incredible breakfast that will not leave you hungry and are very accommodating with food restrictions. The rooms are super clean, spacious and have all of the amenities you need. The heated pool was a treat for both early morning and evening swims. They provided great advice on where to go for dinner, wineries and other local attractions. We will definitely be back soon!

What a wonderful B&B. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the king size bed was extremely comfortable. The service that our hosts Leslie and Bob provided was exceptional and they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was everything we hoped for. They use nothing but local produce. From soaps and lotions to meats fruits and vegetables. Breakfast and dinner were absolutely delicious! This was our second visit and most definitely will not be our last. You will not be disappointed for choosing to stay at The Walnut Grove B&B.
