Summertime Getaways
Craving a getaway somewhere close by? This June, be sure to book a stay at one of Ontario’s many luxurious B&B’s. Bed & Breakfasts are a fabulous alternative to more mainstream hotels, and provide personal touches, unique décor, and – of course – a delicious breakfast! It’s a great way to relax and rejuvenate, especially over the upcoming long weekend.
Here are some places to check out:
Carmelita by the Lake Cottage Rental and B&B (Central Ontario)
Norfolk Guest House (Southwestern Ontario)
Haliburton's newest year-round cottage rental and bed & breakfast, complete with a gorgeous waterfront and morning mimosas.
A boutique-style spot located within walking distance to fabulous restaurants, shopping and entertainment in downtown Guelph.
Ambiance Bed and Breakfast (Ottawa Region)
Sleepy Hollow Bed & Breakfast (Eastern Ontario)
Originally built in 1904, this elegant Victorian home has been totally renovated, and is located in a quiet corner in Ottawa.
This three-story mansion is complete with a turret and wraparound porch. It’s a perfect place to escape and unwind in the beautiful 1000 Islands.
Davy House Bed & Breakfast (Niagara Region)
A beautifully restored historically designated home decorated with antiques, Canadiana Pine and period nineteenth century character.
Ontario has tons of choices when it comes to picking the right B&B for you. Whether you’re looking for a traditional, antique guesthouse; or a sleek, modern spot, you’ll find an idyllic B&B close to home. For more ideas, visit our Hotels, Resorts, Spas & B&B’s page.
