Host is very knowledgeable,friendly and courteous.My only comment is to let further guests know that you need cash or cheque to pay for your stay. Is close to everything. especiallly considering we were here for annual jazz festival and they use various places in the town.

Hello Mark,
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the 1840 Guest House B&B during the Merrickville Jazz Festival!
To clarify, we do notify every guest that payment is by cash or cheque in the reservation confirmation Email that we send. We also indicate that credit cards are not accepted in our B&B website and in our Booking.com and Expedia reservation websites.
Not having credit card user fees allows us to pass on the savings to our guests in the form of lower room rates.
I'm very sorry for the payment confusion and regret any inconvenience this caused.
Regards, Mike

The highlights of this wonderful B&B are the large, clean, airy rooms and Mike, the owner. Every amenity you could hope for in a room, including cable TV, Netflix, electric fireplace, clean/comfortable bed, free wifi, large/clean bathroom. The continental breakfast is served right outside your room door and is complete with muffins, cereal, yogurt and choices of teas and coffees. The rooms are all upstairs and there is a balcony off the common area that overlooks the river. Mike is so warm and friendly. He was very helpful in recommending several restaurants for dinner. He was also a wealth of information about the area and about the history of his home. The little town has several quaint shops and is a haven for artists, so you see a lot of original artwork. It was a perfect stop-over on our trip from Montreal to Niagara Falls!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the river side if you want that view.

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. As you stated, our second storey balcony, with its scenic view of the Rideau River and Canal, makes for a great, relaxing spot to watch the boats and have a cup of tea in the morning. 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.
