A Four Season Getaway!

We would like to invite you to come and enjoy our Bed & Breakfast in Bancroft, Ontario.  Our four season retreat is part B&B and part cottage, depending on your needs. Rent one guest suite and possibly share a living room & kitchen with someone else or rent both guest suites and the whole place is yours.  Each guest suite comes with its own private bathroom and use of the common spaces – living room, kitchen and outdoor decks.  We hope you will experience a relaxing get away from your daily lives – a chance to relax in nature and nurture your soul.

We are situated on Vanluven Lake, just 5 minutes outside of downtown Bancroft. Our guesthouse is nestled in the middle of a mix of cedar, maple, black spruce, white & red pine, tamarac and white birch forest.
