About Us




Built in 1910, our comfortable Bed and Breakfast home sits on land deeded from the estate of Sir Leonard Tilley, a Father of Confederation. Over the years several families have called this lovely Edwardian building home and we are the third of these families to operate a Bed & Breakfast.


Our guests love our delicious breakfasts! A full, hot breakfast is served in our pleasant dining room at 8:30 am. If you need an earlier start,  a generous continental breakfast is available upon request (at 7:30 or before). 

We encourage you to linger with your coffee on the front porch or in the garden - meet new friends, plan your day or just watch the clouds drift by.

Help yourself to tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies anytime you please at our Guest Snack Centre.  Enjoy your own alcoholic beverages anywhere...amongst the flowers, on the porch, in your room, or in the guest area.  Fridge space, ice and  glasses are available for the asking. With advance notice, we accommodate special dietary needs at breakfast. 

Your Hosts
