B&B Autumn Staycations

Catch the fall colours at these bed and breakfasts in Hastings County

Autumn may just be the best season for a bed and breakfast staycation, especially here in Hastings County. From Maynooth to Deseronto, you’ll find cozy abodes perched on rural hillsides, hidden in forested valleys and tucked off side streets in sleepy towns. All of them come with views of vibrant fall colours right outside your window and smells of hot coffee and a warm breakfast just outside your door. Here are six bed-and-breakfast options to get your autumn on across Hastings County. 

Dreamer’s Rock Bed and Breakfast

Dreamer's Rock B&B exterior with large windows and a peaked roof

It’s all about serenity at Laura Smith and Gary Finlay’s modern B&B nestled along the Little Mississippi River. Both the Trillium Room and the Red Maple Room have a queen bed and share a four-piece bathroom and powder room, but it really is the surroundings that shine here. Dreamer’s Rock overlooks cascading waterfalls and is surrounded by old-growth forest that stuns this time of year. For best results, wake up early to a hearty country breakfast and then sip your coffee along the river as the mist rises with sun.

Suite in the Bush

Suite in the Bush bedroom decorated in beige tones

As one guest recently described this newly renovated B&B south of Bancroft: “paradise”. Surrounded by dense forest and solitude, Aileen and David’s home has one 600-square-foot apartment for guests. It comes with a private entrance, king-size bed, three-piece bathroom, full kitchen and living room. There is also an outdoor area with a furnished gazebo, firepit and barbecue. Make breakfast yourself or have it delivered to your suite (try the pancakes and French toast). Just don’t miss a lengthy hang in the hammock and deep breaths of all that fresh air.

Teddy Bear Bed and Breakfast

The Teddy Bear B&B, a white house with red shutters

Just a few kilometres south of Suite in the Bush sits this cozy and clean lakefront B&B with six guestrooms. Each of the rooms has an electric fireplace, and there are two shared bathrooms in the house. If it’s available, go for the Tait Bear Room, which has one queen bed, one single bed and a nice view of Tait Lake. If the weather is decent, ask your host Karin to use the canoe or paddleboat, then head out on the small but beautiful lake to take in the colours and try to spot deer, elk, moose, birds and ducks.

Jewel on the Hill Bed and Breakfast

The bedroom at Jewell on the Hill B&B with wood paneled interior and a four poster bed.

The name nails this B&B near Coe Hill. Sitting a knoll on 100 acres of forested property, the Jewel is a 4,200-square-foot log home with three guest rooms. Two rooms share a bathroom, while the third has its own bathroom and jacuzzi, but all come with a queen bed. The panoramic view from the multi-level outdoor deck is one of the biggest draws here, but it’s hard to beat a quiet stroll in the woods of this sprawling property on a crisp fall day. When it’s time to relax, curl up with a book from the library in front of the see-through stone fireplace.

Clayton Cove Bed and Breakfast

The living room at Clayton Cove B&B with a large stone fireplace and wooden ceiling beams.

If Jewel on the Hill sounds enticing but you’d like to be closer to the water, check out Clayton Cove, which is just south of Coe Hill. It’s also a large log home in the woods, but it’s located right on Wollaston Lake. There are two guest rooms here that have a bathroom for your use only as well as an open-concept kitchen and living room. Though chances are you’ll spend most of your time outside. The dock is the perfect place to put your feet up and soak in the colours around the lake. Or you can go for a hike on the trails that start from the front door.

Huntingdon House Bed and Breakfast

What was once a limestone church just east of Stirling is now Huntingdon House, a boutique B&B that can accommodate one group of up to six guests. Although the former church has been fully renovated, you’ll notice touches of its past life upon entering the common area, such as vaulted ceilings, original wood beams and even stained glass. The master bedroom has a king bed and gas fireplace, while the Entertainment Loft has a kitchenette, 54-inch TV and a gas fireplace. The bathroom has a jacuzzi tub and shower. The backyard is also yours, which boasts a rock garden, hot tub, fire pit and Adirondack chairs that overlook farmers’ fields.

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.)
