Abadin Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 L'Orignal B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Ed and Shirley made our stay at their B&B a wonderful experience.
They were great host, the breakfast was excellent and the room was very cozy and very clean.
We were lucky to be able to spend some time talking with them and we would recommend their place to anyone.

In my opinion, what makes or breaks a BnB is the breakfast.
At Abadin, the breakfast was AMAZING!, homemade wholegrain waffles topped with cream, 4 different german breads, fresh fruits, eggs, coffee, etc... Need I say more?

My partner and I were curious about checking this place out! I had mixed feelings about BnBs due to hit and miss experiences in the past... but Abadin BnB is most definitely a place we will both recommend and come back to! From the moment I called, Ed, one of the owners, took my call and reassured me. We made a reservation, it was smooth and easy and Ed was there to welcome us once we arrived in the evening.

We were so impressed with the warmth and friendliness of the service, not to mention how tastefully the place was decorated! Our room was compact but very comfortable and it had ALL the amenities we needed: an in-suite bathroom which included a modern shower with a large and powerful shower head, a comfy bed, a desk, a dresser, a TV and DVD player... and wi-fi access without any hassels.

We had a wonderful night and when we awoke, breakfast was waiting for us. Ed had taken note of our dietary preferences and restrictions and Shirley had prepared a beautiful breakfast spread, very generous and copious! A concern for organic food, healthy options... it was perfect!!

While the professional customer service and the extreme cleanliness of the place were already enough to convince us to return, it is the warmth and friendliness of the owners which impressed us the most. While Ed and Shirley have years of experience in the hospitality industry, it is only truly rounded individuals, like them, who can sense which customers want their space and which are open to chatting. Ed and Shirley now feel like close friends and my partner and I can`t wait to return!

We even were sent off with healthy organic apple muffins for our hiking trip!

If you want to discover a gorgeous part of Ontario, and experience European style and friendliness, Abadin BnB is a MUST!!!

Dear Guest,

It was a such a pleasure having you as our guests and thank you very much for writing a review for us.
We tremendously enjoy when our guests leave with the feeling that their stay at our B&B was so much more than they had expected! It makes it even more special when our guests leave as friends. We too had such a wonderful time at breakfast and great conversations. We hope to see you and of course your friends and family back in L'Orignal in the future. And for us it is a pleasure to spoil wonderful guests !
All the best.

I was in town for a couple of nights on business and was going to stay at the Best Western, but thankfully, they were booked solid for the plowing match. This allowed me to try this little gem, not even a ten minute drive from Hawkesbury. Ed and Shirley accomodated my request for a late arrival. Breakfast was very enjoyable each morning, providing great conversation with Ed and some of the other guests, and delicious french toast. The property is in very good shape, tastefully decorated in modern themes. A five minute stroll to the river with a a great view. I had no issues with the WIFI, it worked better that some of the hotels in Ottawa that I have stayed in. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in the area.

This was our first b&b experience together and we really enjoyed it. It certainly beats most of the hotels we have done. Very comfortable setting, great for relaxation, especially if you miss the feeling of being home. The house is very modern and clean. Ed was accommodating of our late arrival, and based on another guest's experience, he is accommodating for early departures (2AM). Abadin is a great alternative to staying in a hotel when flying out of Montreal-Mirabel Airport. Breakfast was simple, but very delicious. A lot of ingredients were local, Ed even told us where we could buy some of it. The local area is a lovely agricultural community. Vankleek Hill and the towns nearby seem to have an interesting event every month of the year so you won't get bored. Beau's Brewery (just outside Vankleek Hill) is a must do for ale lovers, even if you just go in to buy drinks, it's worth the short trip. There is also a winery nearby for those into that sort of thing. I was impressed that the tv provided has more channels than one can get in Ottawa. The house itself is not on the river, but you have a view of the river when you step out of the front door. During our stay we went into Ottawa each day for business affairs. Although 1.5 hours drive away, Abadin acts as a good base that's fairly close to both Ottawa and Montreal, but is far removed from the rush of either city.

We experienced two minor flaws during our stay. However, none of these would deter us from going again, nor should it deter you, I'm posting them merely for informative purposes. One, the wifi was touchy and mostly inoperative during our stay. Two, the walls are thin so we had to be mindful of our volume. We enjoyed our experience thoroughly, and next time we're in need of some relaxation we'll stay a little longer.

Room Tip: If you have the option, choose the 'king suite', or whatever they call their largest room. T...

Dear Guest.

Thank you for taking the time and writing a review. We very much appreciate every input we can get.
We love to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and certainly hope you will visit us again!
Regarding the soundproof issue. We had the construction company opened up the walls to install soundproof insulation and drywall but we are in the process to also replace the room doors with special soundproof doors in fall when we are not as busy anymore.
We put a lot of money and effort into improving things and will keep doing so but we certainly always ask the guest to respect other guest and keep the noise down at night especially when walking up the stairs and throughout the house.

We are looking forward to welcome you back.

My husband and I stayed at Abadin this past weekend and really enjoyed our time there. The owners, Ed and Shirley, are amazing and so hospitable. Everything positive that is written on Tripadvisor about them is true! We were upgraded to the Deluxe King suite and it looks just as pretty as it does in pictures. The bed was ultra comfy and there were tons of pillows to accommodate my pregnant self :) They also leave yummy snacks in the room for you to enjoy. We had a vaste range of DVDs to choose from as well as magazines. One of my favorite things - the delicious breakfasts! Those German waffles really are as good as everyone has been raving about...especially with the fresh cream and fruit (the apple french toast was equally as good!!). If there is anything I have to criticize, it would be that the floors in the room/bathroom were slippery...other than that though, I can't say a peep because we had an enjoyable, romantic stay - exactly what we were looking for. This is a quiet town to visit - although they do have festivals listed from time to time - but the Vankleek Hill vineyard and Beau's Brewery were fun stops to make. Don't miss out on this B&B...it's worth every penny.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for writing the review for us! We really love to hear what guests have to say about our B&B and of course about their over all experience. It is wonderful that we could give you a chance to enjoy one more get-away-weekend together before the "Little One" will arrive.
Yes, the floor in this particular room is for some reason so over-polished and we have to find a solution for that.
I am so very sorry that I could not say good bye the morning you left.
We wish you all the best and good luck and hope to hear from you and of course welcome you back when ever you feel like escaping again :)

All the best.

Did a quick weekend getaway to Hawkesbury area and stayed for a night in the Deluxe King Room. Ed was there to greet us, and gave us some tips about the area. However, we did arrive late in the day, so by the time we drove to Hawkesbury, almost everything was closed (so go early!).

We ended up at L'escale for dinner ... they have a back patio with a great view of the water. We had the pizza (L'escale special, I think) and it was quite good. Be warned though, service is incredibly slow!

The room was beautifully furnished (just like the pictures on the website), and very clean. It even had a new air-conditioner installed! The bed was super comfortable and we had an amazing night's sleep. Not too much noise arund the house, which was lovely. We had a delicious homemade breakfast rhe next morning, and had a chance to chit chat with Ed and Shirley, who are both great conversationalists.

In short, we had a very plesant trip!
