Situated in Pembroke, this beautiful old lumber baron mansion has been turned into the best B&B located in the heart of the Ottawa Valley. You are in awe from the moment you walk in the front door. The attention to detail is evident everywhere you look. The warmth from the fireplace greets you as your eyes go from the wood... More

Located minutes off Hwy#17 or Pembroke St. And a few blocks walk to downtown this BnB brings the rich epoque of the Lumber Baron who originally owned it alive. Exquisite Canadiana detail in every room from antique lighting, paintings, fireplaces, tin ceilings, crown moulding and original wood and pedestal sinks, the list goes on. Very quiet, the sleigh bed in... More

We stayed in the Library Suite, which truly has an adjoining, old-world oak library, complete with a fireplace and vintage servant bell. Details throughout the house add many nice touches and if you stay make sure you explore, (respectfully, of course!) The breakfasts are delicious and presented very well. We always felt welcome and comfortable. Indeed, an extraordinary bed &... More

A super-comfortable stay in a heritage mansion, with top-flight service and breakfast. We stayed in a three-room suite for $150. One of the rooms being a very large library room with the original stock of 19th-century books. Period furnishings and artwork. Grey Gables is on a very large lot -- perhaps five acres -- so no noise problems. The inn... More

The photos are stunning. The reviews amazing. The comments from the locals are unanimous. And yet... we were completely unprepared for the exquisite attention to every detail and the kind of personal service you just don't find any more. Our hosts, Art and Shirley, are thoroughly charming. The food is wonderful and their presentation made us feel like honoured guests.... More

When we tell the tale of this holiday, the Grey Gables Inn will have to be mentioned. We entered into a beautiful living room without a person in sight and were completely bowled over by the décor. Then we were taken to our room and that was way beyond all expectations. Large, beautifully decorated and comfortable it surpassed anything that... More

Picked this because it was close to my business meeting. Stayed in the "Library" for one nite- wish I could have stayed longer. The suite was absolutely fabulous - will be looking for reasons to go back.
