The purpose of our time away was rest and relaxation and staying at the 1840 Guest House added to the success of the weekend. Very friendly hosts, nice breakfast and close to the wonderful shopping and attractions. Sitting on the balcony chatting and watching the water was absolute heaven.

Room Tip: If you are a history buff in any manner, your host will be pleased to regale you with stories about...

Thank you for taking the time to write your wonderful review of your stay at the 1840 Guest House B&B. We are glad you and your daughter had an enjoyable, relaxing stay and got to check out the village shopping and scenic view from the balcony overlooking the Rideau River Waterway.
I couldn't ask for a better quote "Sitting on the balcony chatting and watching the water was absolute heaven" to describe the view from the 1840 Guest House B&B balcony. We hope you will be our guests again in the future. Regards, Mike and Dawn.

I stayed here with some cycling friends a couple of weekends ago, having cycled from Ottawa, and found it to be a great place to stay in Merrickville. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms and comfortable beds. They had a nice assortment of breakfast foods in the morning and, of course, coffee and juice. They have locked bike storage and a view of the canal from the balcony at the back, where you can have breakfast. You can easily connect to Wifi as well. Mike was a welcoming, informative and accommodating host.
1840 guest house is just a short walk from the main street of Merrickville, which has lots to see and do; from historical sites, to good restaurants and cafes, and lots of nice shops. There are also good cycling routes of various lengths. The bird sanctuary nearby would be a treat for ornithologists, who would also be able to distinguish what birds were making what sounds. You can rent canoes and go paddling, wander the town and relax. It's great!

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally good!

I read the reviews of the 1840 Guest House and my wife and I stayed there for one night in April. We were on a trip to look at the Rideau Canal and decided to spend the night in Merrickville. I've read all the other reviews and totally agree with all of them. This inn is the total package. It is clean, comfortable and convenient to the village. Mike is a wonderful innkeeper. He is attentive and knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in room 2 and it was one of the most peaceful experiences we've had in a long time. Everything was perfect. The bed was great, the bathroom was great, the available snacks were great and the continental breakfast in the morning was more than enough for us. If you are looking for place to stay in Merrickville this should be your first choice.

We stayed at the Guest House for 12 days and were impressed more each day. Mike is a wonderful host and took time to chat with us each morning, giving us many ideas for things to do and a wonderful history of the building and area. The bed was very comfortable, room extremely clean, continental breakfast very good. Location was another plus as we easily walked to local restaurants and bakeries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

We spent a lovely overnight at the Guest House. Our room had a splendid view overlooking the river. The room was very spacious with a comfortable queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom. It also had a flat screen TV with premium cable and Netflix. The electric fireplace provided a cosy ambiance on a cold winter day. We are looking forward to returning for another stay in the Spring/Summer.

Room Tip: Two of the rooms face the river.
