Comfortable, clean and accommodating sums up our recent three day stay. Our host was full of knowledge about things to see and do in the area. Continental breakfast was simple yet offered a variety of choices. Being within a few minutes walk to the town and the Rideau Canal was a bonus.

I travel to this area every year and this place was such a gem to find. Absolutely completely spotless and wonderful service. Having tea on the balcony in the evening was such a treat. I am not normally a fan of a B&B but the layout has been completed very well and you do not feel as though you are encroaching on the owner's living quarters. So quiet, private and nestled away. Perfect stay.

Room Tip: Request a room on the back to have your own view of the canel

Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful guest review of our B&B. We very much appreciate your comments and are glad you had a wonderful stay at our B&B.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will stay with us again. Regards, Mike

We had a great time this past weekend at the 1840 Guest House B&B! Such a great place to stay. The owners are very welcoming and accommodating. They gave great advice about restaurants shops and near by bike routes. The room was very nice and clean. If you're planing a bike trip this is the perfect place to stay as they have a shed to lock bikes and provide local bike routes and maps. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks for the great Merrickville experience.

Thank you for your wonderful 5 star guest review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our 1840 Guest House B&B during your bicycle tour. We have tried very hard to provide a safe, bicycle friendly atmosphere at our B&B by providing locked bicycle storage, bicycle touring maps, info on area attractions, early morning breakfast and bike maintenance support. We hope you enjoyed the area bicycle routes along the Rideau Canal and will come to stay with us again in the future.
Regards, Mike

Stayed one night on Labour Day weekend. The village was bustling, and only a few minutes walk away! Mike was a great host, rooms were modern and tasteful, beds very comfy! Breakfast was cold, simple and effective. Excellent value!

A group of six of us, including family and friends, stopped at the 1840 Guest House for an overnight stay during our kayaking trip from Jones Falls to Ottawa. We were impressed by the warm hospitality and friendliness of the hosts, Dawn and Mike. The rooms were clean and beautiful, with very comfortable beds. The location is within easy walking distance to the Rideau Canal and key amenities. We look forward to our next visit.
