Our riverfront property has three guest rooms, all with private bath, and can sleep a maximum of nine, although six is typical. Guest quarters are completely separate from the residence, with a private entrance through our Guest Kitchen. Here you’ll find a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and other conveniences.

The “Chart Room” features a pool table, upright piano, wood stove, TV with DVD, a laptop computer with high speed wireless internet exclusively for guests, darts and a (mostly non-fiction) reading library. There's also a double-door walkout to the guest patio overlooking the river and grounds, hammock and a firepit for late-night stargazing by the Grand River.

All guest rooms are newly renovated with high-quality beds and mattresses. The private washroom for Baby Bear features a heated floor and a fabulous new rain shower. Mama Bear and Papa Bear both have ensuites. Each guest room offers a flat screen Smart TV with free Netflix, and an availabile HDMI connection for your laptop. (Conventional cable TV is available in the Chart Room.)

Small touches will make you feel welcome, including fresh-cut flowers, bottled water (should you prefer it), stemware and a welcome folder with maps and area brochures in each room. There are blow dryers in each bathroom and nightly turn-down service with a chocolate on the pillow. Creative, gourmet breakfasts are created daily.

Culinary weekends, special packages and small weddings are available. Please contact us with your requests.

World-class fly fishing, on a prime catch-and-release section of the river, is accessible directly from our property, and the Elora Cataract Trailway is only a kilometre away.
