Loved it! Will certainly return just wished it was a little closer to Queen Street. The breakfasts were unique and delicious. The rooms were good size with everything you could need. Having the private balcony was wonderful and it even overlooked the beautiful backyard!

Great to her you loved your visit :) and thank you for the review. So pleased you enjoyed the balconies, food & backyard. You are correct we are a little distance from Queen Street (approx. 1.5 km or 1 mile), which allows our guests peace and quite from the hustle & bustle of Queen St. We do realize that some...

My wife and I have stayed in many B & B's and Explorer House is a real gem. Located at the end of on a dead end street, you feel like you are in another world. No cars whooshing by while you relax with a glass of wine on your own personal porch facing a beautiful back yard. Yet, you...

We enjoyed our overnight stay very much but would have loved to stay at least 2 days to utilize the jacuzzi and the beautiful hot tub and fire pit in backyard. Lovely home and lively owners. Next time we will stay longer.

The positive reviews are all true! From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The rooms and common areas are beautifully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean. The B&B rooms are separate from the main house so it's like having a boutique hotel all to yourself. The backyard is large and luxurious, including a hot tub and a fire pit. Breakfast...

What a wonderful surprise. Despite reading numerous superlative reviews, I was not prepared to be so delighted by this B&B. It is modern, spacious, bright, spotless, and in all ways a perfect choice. The second floor is like having your own apartment with sitting areas and balconies to share other guests. The hosts are knowledgeable about the area and offer...
