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!

Thank you for your excellent review of the 1840 Guest House B&B.
As a bicycle friendly B&B, located 75 km from Ottawa, we are the perfect destination for a weekend bike tour. I'm glad you enjoyed the bike tour and our B&B. We are very happy to encourage bicycling enthusiasts like yourself to come from Ottawa and stay overnight to check out the wonders of Merrickville. Thanks and come again soon! Regards, Mike and Dawn

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.
