In renovating this great family home into a bed and breakfast, the comfort and needs of our guests came first. We have created a variety of spaces that are for guest use during your stay.
Main Floor Guest Living Room
The main floor living room is for guest enjoyment. It seats 9 people comfortably with reading lamps and overhead lighting and a gas fireplace for those wintery nights. The expanse of windows from the living room looks out to the gardens, the deck and the Blue Mountains to the West. We welcome our guests to read a book, the Saturday Toronto Star and the Saturday Globe & Mail or one of many magazines that we subscribe to. Enjoy your coffee, tea or a glass of wine in this luxurious space.
The B&B owners, Guy and Craig, have a private suite in the basement of the home. For ultimate privacy for both guests and the owners, their suite is two floors below guest rooms, which are on the second floor of the bed and breakfast. Guy & Craig have their own living room within their suite, leaving the Guest Living Room pictured above for the exclusive use of guests.
Sherry’s Nook — A guest chill-out zone
Sherry helped a lot during our renovations, and she envisioned the concept for this space. What used to be the eat-in kitchen for the old family home is now a warm and cozy reading, coffee drinking and wine sipping haven with private seating for two. The view from this location on the main floor into the backyard, forest and gardens is serene. Watch the hummingbirds or rabbits in the spring and summer or a fierce winter storm in winter.
No matter how you use the space, you will be enveloped by the deep chairs, pillows, and natural light, charmed by the fuzzy footstools, and kept warm by the cozy area rug that we have placed here for you. Thank you, Sherry for this dreamy space.
Guest Dining Areas
The original family home had a very spacious private dining room, which is where two tables for two are located. These two bistro tables are eight (8) feet apart in the dining room. A third bistro table for two is located in an alcove within the large Grand Foyer at the bottom of the stairs to the second floor guest rooms. This seating arrangement allows for significant distance between any tables for breakfast service. These stylish, comfortable spaces are flooded with beautiful natural light, making them great spaces to start your day. Fresh flowers adorn the tables daily. See more about why our Breakfasts are a Big Deal here.
Most of our guests dine out for dinner because we have so many great restaurants nearby, but if you decide to order in or pick up take-out, you’re welcome to use the dining room. We’re happy to provide plates, utensils, glassware – whatever you need to make your lunch or dinner special. Just let us know what your plans are. The dining room is also a great spot for a game of cards.
Finally, if you have a party of four or six, we will configure the dining room to bring those tables together for a more intimate breakfast experience.
Grand Foyer and Tourism Info
We are members of the Georgian Triangle Tourism Association and Grey County Tourism. These two great organizations keep us well informed about events, festivals and happenings in Simcoe and Grey Counties, which border Collingwood. Our brochure racks are continually updated with the latest information to help you during your stay. If you need help before you get here, just give us a call or drop us an email with your questions.
Self-Serve Hot Drink Station
We have a dedicated full-size guest fridge in the pantry area just behind the kitchen where you can keep drinks and snacks cold. There is also a complimentary self-serve coffee and tea station located there. Please help yourself. Wine, champagne and cocktail glasses are available for guest use. Ice is always available also.
