My new husband and I stayed at Walkerbrae House just last weekend and had our wedding there. We also brought along our two Rottweilers and our Bishon Frise along with us. There aren't many places that allow dogs, let alone Rottweilers!
The Location is perfect. On a quiet street on the outskirts of Guelph, but yet still close enough to town that everything is convenient to get to (by car, walking would be quite a hike).
The Suite was amazing! We've never stayed at a B&B before and were concerned about privacy, but having our own fully private suite was perfect! It was spacious, tidy and very clean. The king sized bed was so comfortable and provided tons of room for us and our three dogs. There was lots of property for the dogs to play around, and we made good use of the hot tub just outside off the livingroom.
The Hosts were so kind and friendly and treated us like kings and queens... including the dogs. Our dogs even got a bag of treats when we arrived! They were so helpful with the wedding plans and details and took care of everything! It was so relaxing and stress free!
The Wedding was everything we had dreamed it would be. We went with the Elopement Package. We wanting a wedding that was elegant, simple, and intimate and that's exactly what we got! The ceremony was simple and personal, and the minister was so kind and down to earth. The living-room/log portion of the home was beautiful and elegantly decorated. We lucked out and had beautiful weather and managed to get photos inside, on the front porch and around the property. They turned out great! We had hors d'oeuvres on the front porch after pictures with champagne. It was so intimate and perfect. We ate our wedding dinner in the dining-room of the home and the food was absolutely delicious!! We also had breakfast in our suite each morning and it was just as amazing!
I definitely recommend Walkerbrae House not only to stay at, but also to have your wedding there if you're looking at something small and intimate. We had originally looked at Niagara Falls, but there was so much planning to do with trying to get the hotel room, chapel, photographer, dinner and the costs kept adding up and up. With Walkerbrae House everything is planned out for you and stress free, and the cost is very reasonable. We had the most amazing time! Everything was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing.
