  Cancellation & No Show Policy

We are a small business, and cancellations affect us in a big way. We want to be fair since we know that your plans can change.

Cancellations on the 14th day or less before your reservation will be subject to a full room charge unless we are able to fill the vacancy. If we fill it, you are not charged anything. If we are unable to fill the vacancy, you will be charged the full room rate for your canceled stay.

The most important thing is to talk to us – as soon as you know, you may not be able to use a reservation, and we can help you navigate through it all.

There is no charge for the cancellation of items within a package. For example, if there are canoe or kayak rentals, bicycle rentals, picnic lunches, golf etc. that you have reserved as part of a package there is NO charge for these items even if you cancel within 14 or fewer days. The cancellation refers only to the room charges.

If you have booked any SPA services reserved,  the Scandinave Spa has a 48-hour cancellation policy for massages or spa baths visits. If you cancel with us within 48 hours before your arrival date we cannot guarantee any refund or credit for spa services reserved for you.

No show – if you simply do not show up for your reservation, you will be charged 100% of the cost of your stay and any package items that we could not cancel for you.

Cancellations or changes due to COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

If any level of government or local health authority in Canada, Federal, Provincial or Municipal enacts or changes any law regarding our ability to be open or your ability to travel your reservation can be canceled with no charges. Simple.

Any deposits paid will be cheerfully refunded to your credit card account ‘or’ you can accept a Gift Certificate for future reservations here at the B&B. Your choice. Our Gift Certificates never expire and can be redeemed for any future room booking or packages that we sell. You can also choose to change your reservation to a future date at no cost.

You can buy Trip Cancellation Insurance here.


When you reserve with us, a deposit equal to 50% of the cost of your reservation will be charged to your credit card when your reservation is made. This deposit is fully refunded if you cancel your reservation at least 15 days prior to your arrival date.

If you reserve a stay 14 days or less before arrival, the full cost of your stay is payable at the time of reservation.


Check-in is anytime from 4 pm to 9 pm.

  • All rooms are guaranteed for arrival between these times. Do not rush to get here at 4 pm. We will not give your room away. Ever.
  • Late arrival is a challenge. We risk disturbing other guests when we check people in after 9 pm. If you must check-in after 9 pm, please call so we can discuss the timing.


Check-out is 11 am.

  • We’re sorry, but we do not offer late check-out. We need all the time between 11am and 4pm to clean the rooms for the next guests.
  • Lost room key charge is $25.00 and will be charged to your account if you leave with a room key. Return the key and get your $25 refunded.

No Curfew 

Once you have checked in, you are a registered guest. You may use your personal front door access code to come and go as you please. If you are returning from a night out after 11 pm, we ask that you do so quietly. Many guests will be in bed by that time. Thank you.

Non-Registered Guests

Generally, people who are not registered as guests are not permitted into the B&B. This is a private home, and for the safety and security of all guests and our home, we need to know who is here at all times. Under no circumstances are non-registered guests allowed in the guest bedrooms on the second floor. Only registered guests are allowed anywhere in the B&B after 11 pm.

Here are the exceptions that may allow non-registered guests on the main floor only:

  1. If you are meeting friends and they pick you up at the B&B, they are permitted to enter.
  2. If you have rented the entire B&B, all three guest rooms, we will allow up to 4 other individuals to join you for socializing in the main floor common areas. You must make arrangements for this when you reserve, please. These guests must leave no later than 11 pm.

Thank you for being so understanding.


Thank you for staying at Craigleith Manor Bed & Breakfast. We ask that you respect our home during your stay. We expect regular wear on bedding, carpets, etc., and we replace them routinely when they show normal wear so our guests are comfortable.

Extraordinary cleaning of stains on carpets, towels, damaged sheets, pillow cases, robes, and duvet covers will be charged for. Should we not be able to remove stains left behind, we reserve the right to charge for the replacement of the damaged article.

Food is not allowed in Guest Rooms

Just to be clear, because we are all adults, you can bring a bottle of wine or some beer. You can bring those in a soft cooler, no hard coolers are allowed in the rooms. You can also keep your beverages in the Guest Fridge on the main floor. We will be happy to provide you with wine glasses or beer glasses. You are responsible for any damages that result from any beverages spilled in the room. See Damages above.

You can bring some light snacks like chips or nuts. What you should not do is bring a steaming hot pizza, fish and chips, or Big Macs into the guest rooms. There is nowhere to eat a full meal in the room, and it attracts bugs and mice. We live in a forest. You can eat your take-out in the dining room or on one of the main floor decks. These are great spaces for eating. The guest rooms are great spaces for sleeping.

Thank you for being so understanding.

Privacy of Information

We respect your personal information. When we collect your information, we do so only to communicate with you about your stay with us, to allow the transaction of charges, and to keep you informed about events at Craigleith Manor B&B or the local tourism region. You may unsubscribe from these communications or uses at any time. Rest assured, none of your personal information will ever be shared. We will never disclose the names of our guest’s past, current, or future to anyone.

Personal Privacy at the Manor

While you are at the Manor, your personal privacy is critical to us. Each guest room has a secure locking door, and we encourage you to keep your room locked at all times. We will not enter your room without your express permission and then only to perform housekeeping tasks to enhance your comfort and the cleanliness of the space. We are not responsible for any missing items during your stay.

Personal Security

When you register at the Manor, you will receive a personal, four-digit access code for the front door of the B&B. This code allows you to come and go as you please. Only registered guests that day and the owners have codes. All other access points to the home are locked at all times. The B&B is in a very safe, quiet residential community of executive homes in Collingwood, Ontario.

Fire Safety

When we renovated the Manor in 2014, we replaced all fire and carbon monoxide alarms with a new interconnected alarm system. If smoke or carbon monoxide is detected in one area of the B&B, all alarms will sound. There are smoke detectors in each guest room, and a carbon monoxide detector on each floor as required by the Ontario Building Code. There is an emergency lighting system on the second floor where guest rooms are located which is activated if the power fails.

Emergency power

The Manor is equipped with a natural, gas-fired emergency power generator that supplies power to the most essential parts of the B&B, including heating and air conditioning, fridges, stoves, WiFi, and main floor lighting. We have only had this system in use a couple of times since we moved here in 2014. Local power is reliable except in the worst of storms.

Inclusion, Respect & Service Pledge

We are proud to have guests from around the world and from every walk of life. We honour and respect the diversity of our guests, and we expect the same from everyone we invite into our bed and breakfast. We pledge to provide every guest with respect and the high-quality 5-star service and hospitality we are known for. We do this in a comfortable, casual, and not-so-stuffy way that we hope allows everyone to feel welcome.


Our B&B was built as a private residence in 1996. While we have converted our private home to contain a B&B, we are not able to provide full accessibility to guest rooms for the disabled. Our guest rooms are on the second floor of our home and require climbing stairs to access them.


There is no smoking inside the B&B or on any balconies or decks. This includes any type of vapor pipes, electric cigarettes, tobacco or cannabis.

We allow smoking on our front covered porch or in the back or front yard. Please ask for an ashtray to contain butts. There is no smoking on the private balconies attached to the Forest and Mountain suites. Smoke will make its way inside the house if you use these areas. Thank you for your respect of our home and your fellow guests.

Environmental Impact

We work very hard to make as small an impact as possible on the environment. We use low-odour and low-phosphate cleaning solutions throughout the B&B. We recycle plastics, paper, metal, and glass, and all compostable materials from our kitchen are directed to Simcoe County compost program. There are recycle bins in each room.

Drinking Water

Water at the Craigleith Manor is from the Town of Blue Mountains municipal water system and is of very high quality. Read the stories here about the Town of Blue Mountains winning the American Water Works Association Award for Best Tasting Water in North America.

Cologne-Free Home

We ask guests to consider the comfort of others and refrain from using strong colognes and perfumes during their stay. Many people have allergies that are triggered by these perfumes. Thank you.

Adult-Only Accommodation

When we envisioned the Manor, we saw a place for many different types of relaxation. We wanted to create a unique space for adults to unwind from work, family, and the other stressors that we all face. Many guests choose Craigleith Manor for adult-only, quiet conversation and private time.

There are many local resorts, hotels, motels, and Inns that accommodate people under the age of 19 years. We do not offer accommodation to individuals under 19 years of age. Thank you for your understanding.

Meet Fergus

We have a small dog. He is a miniature Schnauzer, and he is very friendly. He never goes into guest rooms. He is hypo-allergenic and has hair like people and not fur like many other dogs. We do not allow other pets into our home. If you have any fear of animals or allergies, please call us to discuss.

Registered Service Dogs

If you can provide a Service Dog registration ID under the Blind Persons’ Rights Acts and/or the Ontario Service Dogs Act when you reserve, we would be pleased to host you and your service dog. An additional service and cleaning fee may apply.

Parking & EV Charging

There is free parking for guests at Craigleith Manor. We have parking for one car for each guest room. If you need additional parking, please notify us in advance so we can make arrangements. We cannot accommodate any type of trailer. Motorcycle parking is available, and we have wood blocks for your kickstand.

If you have an electric vehicle, we provide free onsite overnight charging. Read more here.


Bikes are most welcome at the Manor. This is a very safe and secure property for bikes. You can lock them anywhere on the property, on the front porch, or inside a locked storage building at the rear of the property. You cannot bring bikes inside the main house or your guest room.


As a guest in our private residence, you are welcome to bring alcohol. We are not licensed, so we cannot sell alcohol. You can order alcohol during the reservation process. It will be delivered to the B&B by Collingwood Flowers for you. We will place your order in your room for you before you arrive.

We have wine, champagne, cocktail glasses, and ice, which we are pleased to share. We have a full-size guest fridge in the guest pantry area, which you are welcome to use to keep any beverages, or snacks cold.

What we don’t have is tolerance for people who disturb the peace and quiet of the B&B (our home) and the enjoyment of the quiet by other guests. Guests who disturb the peace and quiet of the B&B, at any time of the day or night, will be asked to leave.

If you are drinking anything other than water in your guest room (and why wouldn’t you?), be aware that cleaning stains on carpets, bedding, and furniture will be charged to your credit card. See damages.


We work very hard to keep the Manor spotless. Guest room linens and towels are completely changed and ensuite bathrooms sanitized after each stay. Rooms are vacuumed and dusted, and robes are replaced. Our bed linens are expertly cleaned by Georgian Bay Wet Cleaners using a process without harsh chemicals that harm the environment.

For multiple-night stays, we are happy to provide fresh towels, freshen your ensuite bath and make beds as required. We will not enter any guest room without advance permission, except in an emergency. Please let us know how we can serve you best during your stay.

  • 5 star ratingThis is the Best of the Best!!!!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Craigleith Manor!!!!! Beautiful, comfortable, well stocked rooms, quiet location, just minutes from Scandinave Spa. Breakfasts are over the top in variety, quality and service.

We are looking forward to our next stay soon. This is the best of the best!!!!!

  • 5 star ratingGreat spot for a getaway Very comfortable room and surroundings. Guy was a wonderful host and his breakfast was excellent. He did tease us with some great burgers he BBQ’d one night before we went out for dinner - maybe consider adding dinner to your B&B! Look forward to staying there again. Cheers Melanie & Don.

  • 5 star ratingA Great B & B This B & B is immaculate in every way. The rooms are well appointed, clean and the view from the rooms with balcony is very nice. The main floor is a great place to relax after an active day in the area. Guy's breakfasts are amazing with plenty of choice and regardless of one's choices, the results are excellent. There is plenty to do in the area and the extras offered by this B & B, such as golf vouchers or dinner vouchers are well worth it. We have had a very positive experience both times we have stayed here.

  • 5 star ratingAuthentic Accommodation We very much enjoyed our stay at the Craigleith Manor Bed & Breakfast .The host Guy Laporte was very friendly & very welcoming . He was very knowledgeable about the Collingwood area . There was a great selection of well prepared breakfast meals.

  • 5 star ratingBest B&B experience!! Amazing find! Our 2 night stay (part of our baby moon) in June was quiet and relaxing! Guy (one of the owners) welcomed us, did a quick walkthrough, and gave us an overview of what to expect. Everything exceeded our expectations. The Mountain suite is tastefully furnished and the living spaces are really well decorated. The breakfast was the highlight of our stay. Guy gives plenty of options to choose from and is a pleasure to talk to. We especially loved the omelettes, breakfast sandwich, and eggs Benedict. This is not just another business, but a place where you feel truly welcome and an experience which exceeds expectations. Place is located very near to Blue Mountains and Collingwood. Thanks Guy, Craig and Rufus for a wonderful stay! As promised we will definitely revisit before our kid goes to college (wink!!) - Himanshu & Niharika
  • 5 star ratingOur best B&B experience yet This was the best B&B we've ever stayed at. Guy and Craig's attention to detail was impeccable. The rooms are new, clean and the bed comfy. We want to buy the towels they have, so soft, yet not too thick. Breakfast was delicious and served to our choosing. And Guy's recommendations for how to spend our days hit the spot. Thank you and hope to see you again next year.

  • 5 star ratingRomantic Getaway What a fabulous find! The B & B is absolutely beautiful! Guy and Craig have really done an amazing job at thinking of every possible thing to make this stay perfect! We enjoyed our suite [Mountain Suite] very much the room was beautifully decorated, the bed very comfy, beautiful linens, towels and comfortable furnishings. We were made to feel right at home from the moment we arrived. We were given a tour, invited to make ourselves comfortable in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Stocked fridge in pantry for guests, coffee and tea on demand. The property had direct access to the Georgian Trail and we brought our bicycles and set off for the day with a yummy picnic backpack lunch made by Guy. The highlight was our breakfasts .made to order from a selection each day from a menu by Guy, the chef in residence delicious! We chose this B & B for our 30th anniversary getaway and we were so pleased! It was a perfect weekend. Thank you so much!
  • 5 star ratingPeaceful and relaxing The Manor was so quiet and relaxing. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. No neck or back pain in the morning. Breakfast was very good. You got to choose each night from the menu and at what time you wanted. Would definitely go again. Guy and Craig have a lovely home to share.

  • 5 star ratingBeautiful and Clean My partner and I stayed at Craigleith Manor at the end of April during the rainy weekend, but nothing about our stay was gloomy. Upon arrival Guy had welcomed us, did a walkthrough of the space, and gave us a run down on what to expect. A great feature to the property is that it backs onto the Georgian trail. We had a great time walking the path, watching the horses and birds, and taking in the views of the Blue Mountain. The best thing about our stay were the breakfasts! Guy is a chef in the kitchen, and whips up a great omelette (the brie and bacon one is to die for!) If you are looking for other good eats, their property is located a short (8-10 min) distant from other great eats and to the downtown core. Guy and Craig have great recommendations that you should be sure to

  • 5 star ratingLovely stay at Craigleith Manor! We booked for 2 nights at Craigleigth Manor and we loved it! Guy (one of the owner) was very welcoming as soon as we entered the Manor. We tour the Manor and he made us feel at ease. The Manor is conveniently located few minutes from the Scandinave spa and easily accessible by car to Collingwood. We loved that few steps from the Manor, you can take a stroll on the trail just behind. The room and the main floor with the kitchen and living room was clean and nicely decorated. We particularly appreciated access to the fridge to keep our lunch for our next day hike and the possibility to make tea before going to bed. The bed was very comfortable. All amenities were available like in a hotel, I particularly appreciated having a blow drier in the room. Breakfast were amazing and Guy
  • 5 star ratingA Great Experience at Craigleith Manor Craigleith Manor did not disappoint. In fact, Everything exceeded our expectations. The home is beautifully decorated in a comfortable casual manner as well as spotlessly clean. Upon arrival, our host, Guy, gave us a tour of the main floor where we were invited to use the space as our own. We happily spent time in the sitting area overlooking the back yard enjoying coffee we made for ourselves at the coffee and tea station available to visitors. We also relaxed in the very comfortable living room where we enjoyed a glass of wine with other guests one evening after dinner. We stayed in the Forest room which had a comfortable bed, a large closet with complimentary robes and a private bathroom with the softest towels I have ever used. This room also had a balcony with two

  • 5 star ratingA Real Gem A spotless, lovely home ,from the bedrooms, to the ensuites, and the common areas. Guy, the host, and breakfast chef was amazing. Everything about this place is top notch. We definitely plan to return.

  • 5 star ratingAn Exceptional Experience! My family treated me to a 60th birthday celebration at Craigleith Manor and it was exceptional! It was conveniently located close to the Scandinave Spa, Georgian Hills Vineyard, downtown Collingwood, and many fine restaurants, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The venue was clean, quiet, and boasted high quality towels and linens. The breakfast choices were numerous and deliciously prepared. Guy, the B&B owner and host, was incredibly intuitive to our every need, and frequently went above and beyond to provide the best experience possible. I would highly recommend Craigleith Manor for your next getaway.

  • 5 star ratingINCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE! We had such an incredible stay at Craigleith Manor Bed and Breakfast for my bachelorette party, that I immediately booked a second stay to celebrate my mother’s surprise 60th birthday only a few months later. Guy and Craig’s sincere thoughtfulness, meticulous attention to detail, and graciousness towards our many unusual (and ever-changing) requests made for two extraordinary experiences that we will never forget. We cannot recommend a better bed and breakfast, as both our stays were beyond comfortable, the breakfast options were delicious, and our hosts went above and beyond to accommodate us to ensure we felt right at home. We highly recommend Craigleith Manor to anyone looking for a unique and memorable experience with friends or family!

  • 5 star ratingImpeccable It was such a pleasant stay from the day we arrived. We were extremely impressed how clean the house was, everything from the floor up to the ceilings, the living space and the room was spotless. Guy greeted my fiancé and I as soon as we arrived. Guy was very welcoming and showed us around his beautiful home. Although an email is sent to you for places to eat prior to your stay, Guy is so informative, very passionate and he was very helpful with anything you needed to know about the area. We stayed in the forest suite which was the perfect size for the two of us, the balcony view of the tress and the blue mountain behind was refreshing and the heated floors in the bathroom were a bonus! We also hanged out in the living room with the fire place on, it was very cozy and again,

  • 5 star ratingThe Best of the Best! Craigleith Manor provides a warm and welcoming environment and a spotless, elaborate and tastefully decorated home where every detail has been well thought out to provide you with a luxurious experience. If you’ve been to many B&B’s, you’ll find this one to be the best! If you’ve never been to one, try this and and you’ll be hooked!
  • 5 star ratingThe perfect escape can not be anymore pleased with the experience This is by far the best bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in the room was impeccably clean and comfortable. the home was beautiful and spacious (and always smelled like fresh bread lol). breakfast is mind-blowing everything is made fresh Daily just like your grandmother used to make only better. And to top it all off it's only a few minutes drive from some of the most popular tourist destinations ( the Scandinavian spa is TOO DIE FOR ). 100% recommend to anyone who needs to escape and enjoy the beauty and hospitality of the blue mountains will definitely be staying here again.
