My wife and I set out for a 180 km weekend bike trip from Gatineau to Merrickville (https://goo.gl/Vsf5gF) with another couple. We got to the B&B around 5pm. We could use a locked shed to store our bikes for the night.
Our rooms (#1 and #2 overlooking the Rideau river) we ready and Mike was an excellent host to show us around. The rooms very new and extremely clean. Each room has an en-suite, walk in closet, free WiFi, TV, Netflix, comfy chairs, etc... The beds are also very comfortable. There is a 2nd floor patio (accessible from the common space between rooms 1 and 2) with chairs for the guests. This prove to be an excellent spot to relax after spending 6hrs on a bike. Breakfast consisted of muffins, cereal, coffee, fruit, granola bars and yogurt. There are a couple other spots close by where you can get something more elaborate but we didn't feel the need after finishing our breakfast.
Before leaving the next morning we had a bit of maintenance/adjusting to do on some bikes and Mike was really kind and offered his tools to help.
I would recommend this place to everyone! I'll definitely stay there again in the future if I happen to be in Merrickville for an overnight.
