We will be very warmly welcomed by Geordie. Our room is delightful, the bed we look directly at the lake! There is a fireplace and a terrace, unfortunately, we are only there for one night. He gives us tips for supper and for the whale tour, we also get percentages.

After a long road trip through canada this place was so beautiful. It was the best place to relax and the breakfast was delicious. Although we couldn't go swimming in the lake, because of the cold temperature, we have had a wonderful time in the hot tube. Thank you for your hospitality.

Gordie and Janice are in the right business. They are friendly, informative and so helpful. After a long journey around Canada, we were desperate to find a laundromat but we didn't need to since they washed and dried our clothes as part of the service! The breakfasts were prepared with love and attention to detail and served to us via...

We were greeted warmly on our arrival by our hosts Gordie and Janice, and given a tour of the large common area with its welcoming dining table overlooking beautiful Long Lake. The room had a very...

I booked this B&B at about 8PM on a Wednesday, planning to stay the following day. On Thursday morning I got an email that I hadn't shown up for my stay and was charged $55. Either I or bookings.com made an error with the date. I emailed Bookings.com and explained that I thought the booking was for the Thursday night...

Thank you Robin for your comments regarding the challenges in dealing with a third party site. Dealing directly with us would have resulted in a different solution. We offer guests many different options when no shows or cancellations happen. There is impact on a small property when we specifically reserve the suite for you and say no to others looking...

We had a lovely room at Long Lake B&B, with our own private bath. There was a fantastic, and I do mean fantastic, breakfast every morning.
