1840 Guest House B&B
Ranked #1 of 5 Merrickville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2015

Booked an over nite stay and were totally blown away by the location, right on the Rideau River in the historic village of Merrickville. Walking distance to eateries, shops and LCBO. Room had private bathroom, beautiful furniture and decorations. Access to fridge. Couldn't ask for more! Property was clean, down right spotless.

And our host , Mike was so friendly and welcoming. Had everything at his finger tips. Menus from local eateries, points of interest, discounts at some of the local retail establishments and intimate knowledge of the area.

My husband gave this a 14 out of 10 and I totally agree.

Room Tip: Both back rooms overlook beautiful view of River.

We have stayed here several times at Christmas and holidays for one or two nights. Always great, we really enjoy the ambience and friendliness of Mike and Dawn. The continental breakfast is just right. A great 'deal' compared to others in the vicinity.

My husband and I had an opportunity to stay at this B&B a couple of weeks ago. My husband was reluctant to stay at a B&B - this was his first stay at a B&B. What a fantastic B&B - the rooms are beautifully appointed with quilts, the bed is ultra comfortable, the rooms are meticulous and the hospitality from Mike and his wife were out of this world. The rooms are located upstairs - very private - you do not feel as though you are encroaching on the owners. The location is walking distance to great shopping and restaurants. The continental breakfast and the selection of coffees and teas was abundant. The true testament to our experience is the fact that my husband wants to return - in fact we've already booked our next visit. We are looking forward to our room facing the Rideau.

Room Tip: Room #1 and #2 have the view of the Rideau Canal.

My wife and I stayed one night at this terrific "getaway" location. Mike and Dawn have obviously invested a lot into creating a "home-away-from-home" atmosphere. If you are looking for a VERY affordable, spotless, tranquil location within a few steps of charming Merrickville and the town's specialty shops then this is a place you must consider. The things that most people look for waiting for you: the bed was very comfortable, the room we had (Number 2) was spacious, the room and ensuite were spotless. The owners set up a "continental breakfast" just outside the rooms and provide a suggestion for a local restaurant should you be inclined to have a full breakfast. This aspect goes a long way to making this experience so affordable! We will be returning with the intention to stay two nights and indulge in the "spa package". We will add our vote to those who have already left their reviews- Two Thumbs Up!! Steven and Lynn, Bainsville, Ont.

Room Tip: We were given Room 2 which apparently is the largest and has a view of the famous Rideau Canal.

Thank you for spending Remembrance day with us at the 1840 Guest House B&B.
Being involved in the "B&B's For Vets" program where we offer free accommodations for military personnel on Remembrance Day is our way to give back and show our appreciation to our Vets. This year we offered free accommodations to three military couples all of whom appreciated their mini vacation. We are glad you enjoyed your stay on this special day of remembrance.

Stayed at the "1840" on Oct. 19th. This is a very welcoming, beautifully decorated,super place to stay. Host Mike was very friendly and accommodating. Self serve continental breakfast had great choices including fresh fruit. Location is right on the Rideau Canal- weather permitting you can have breakfast outdoors on the balcony. Would stay here again anytime. A home away from home - for sure!

Room Tip: Every room is lovely.
