5 Bed and Breakfast Staycations in Hastings County

Table of Contents

Looking to go away for the weekend — or longer — but just don’t want the expense of a full cottage or the hassle of camping? A bed and breakfast may be just the ticket. And you’re in luck in Hastings County, as there are a wide range of options to choose from. Some are in bustling towns and villages with restaurants and shops next door; others are out in the country with sweeping views of rolling hills and hiking trails nearby. Here are five options.     

Limestone B&B

Front property of the Limestone Bed and Breakfast, located in Marmora, Ontario

This historic 1860s limestone home is found in the quaint village of Marmora, just steps from the Crowe River. Originally a stagecoach stop and inn, hosts Paul and Rose have brought it back to life with four charming rooms to choose from. Two have a private living room and ensuite bathroom; two share a bathroom. Hearty breakfasts could include everything from standard bacon and eggs to Italian zucchini baked skillets. Outside, take a load off on the covered verandah or in the pool with gorgeous surrounding gardens.   


Stirling B&B

One of the bedrooms featured at the Stirling Bed and Breakfast in Stirling, Ontario; featuring a Victorian style room, queen bed, sitting area and fireplace.

Set on a beautifully landscaped two-acre lot on the outskirts of the town of Stirling, this large brick home is famous for its cleanliness, comfortable beds, quietness, and delicious breakfasts. There are four rooms here — two with ensuite bathrooms and two with a shared bathroom — and four breakfast options — lemon pancakes with fresh fruit, French toast with fresh fruit, eggs benedict, and smoked salmon on a buckwheat pancake. Downtown is just a 10-minute walk away, and there you’ll find attractions like the Stirling Festival Theatre, Allure Day Spa, antique shops, and solid dining options.

Quinn's of Tweed

345 Victoria St. North Tweed, Ontario K0K 3J0

Visitors often ask about the building and it’s name, Quinn’s of Tweed. In fact, tradition dictates that we keep, with honour,  the name Quinn’s of Tweed, the original name of the store and building. The Quinn’s of Tweed building is one of the town’s oldest and most beautiful historic stone structures, dating back to the 1880s. The twelve foot walls allow us to hang paintings in the traditional French salon style. You’ll marvel at the craftmanship of the ash and maple staircase, the old bookeeper’s office, and the stained glass that brings one back to an era when a handshake and promise were as good as gold – today, we still believe in those principles.

228 Victoria St N, Tweed, ON K0K 3J0

Charles Frederick McGowan sold the lot in 1907 to William James Lawrence for $600.00. Shortly thereafter Mr. Lawrence erected the building which still stands there today. He conducted a furniture business until 1912, when he sold the property to the Traders’ Bank of Canada, which within the year, was taken over by the Royal Bank of Canada. It operated out of the building until 1942, when the war forced consolidations and closures due to a lack of tellers (men). The property changed hands a couple more times before local Tweed family, Gaylord Forest Products secured the property in 2003. Since then, they have evolved every inch of the interior into an experience. Each room throughout the building is a real life ‘showroom’ from top to bottom; you simply have to see it to believe it. The stairwell in particular holds a lot of history!

Marmora and Lake Inn

Come as strangers. Leave as friends.

29 Bursthall St, Marmora, ON K0K 2M0

Experience the charm of our 1906 mansion, nestled in the village of Marmora, Ontario, an historic town celebrating 200 years in 2021. The large and stately home was built by Ed Shannon for lumber baron Henry Reginald Pearce (known as “Reginald”) and his family, who purchased the lot for $200. It remained a private family dwelling for many decades and eventually was converted to a Bed and Breakfast by Chris and Lilly Boldly.

It now operates as Marmora And Lake Inn B&B and boasts beautiful, spacious bedrooms with quaint old-world craftsmanship for a luxurious stay. Onsite amenities include an exceptional indoor swimming pool, bubbler tub, infrared sauna, large screen SMART TV’s in each room, wireless internet access throughout, and generous sized gathering rooms. And being a small town, the pool is open to the community and friends for a nominal fee (pre-booking is required).

Our guests enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast including locally baked breads and pastries, yogurt and fresh fruit, an extensive beverage and tea/coffee bar featuring a wide variety of flavours and blends. Great outdoor patio area for fair-weather relaxation and large private events.

Whether planning a romantic weekend for two, a small wedding, a family reunion or a week-long visit to bask in the natural beauty of the region, the Marmora And Lake Inn B&B will help make it a time to remember. (Please note that all bedrooms are on the upper levels and we don’t yet have accessibility assist.)
