A SMALL TOWN HEAVEN, IF ONLY FOR THE NIGHT...
"Located near the crossroads of Highways 8 and 23 in the quaint little town of Mitchell, our century yellow brick home, that we restored, offers a spacious suite and a welcoming Guest Lounge with a pool table, dining and sitting areas, library and a heated in-ground pool and patio. In addition to a large bedroom with a walk in closet and full private en-suite bathroom, our suite has a second room that can be used as an office as well as another bedroom for children or additional guests. The property is surrounded by spectacular private four season gardens that constantly change blooms during the warmer months, which attract many varieties of butterflies and birds. Our all season boutique B&B would be the perfect place to stay for anyone visiting local attractions, travelling for business or visiting family and friends in the area. We are 20 min from Stratford Festival, 40 min from the beaches of Grand Bend and 35 min from Bayfield. Or try us as a weekend getaway or a remote office location. We love entertaining and offering hospitality and would enjoy the opportunity to share our beautiful world with you."

SEE & DO

Once you have seen our private gardens please take the time to enjoy the beautiful West Perth Nature Trail and Wetlands along the Thames River that starts right across the road (Highway 23) up the street. It offers spectacular river views and has paved walkways that are perfect for walking on foot or biking. Park benches along the trail provide comfortable spots to sit down, relax and absorb the views and tranquility. The trail leads to the Lions Park with a small zoo where you can observe many different birds, such as peacocks, and animals. Continue to downtown Mitchell for a nice town walk with some local shops and restaurants.
Since we have opened our B&B, we have been learning a lot about our local area and how much Perth and Huron Counties have to offer as a tourist or day tripping destination.
In addition here are some tourism websites that provide a wealth of information, ideas and resources on what you can visit and do during your stay in Ontario Southwest. And yes... please ask us anything )) If we do not have a ready answer we will research.
“ If you are looking for a place easy to access Stratford you can’t have a better location. Rita and Ken were outstanding, always making sure our needs were met. The place was very clean and had all of the necessities for a few nights stay including cute outdoor pool. The best advice - do not book any restaurant in Stratford because we were spoiled by Rita’s exclusive family recipes everyday with options of fresh vegetables and berries from the garden and so much more. ” - Anna & Peter
