Then my new husband and I stayed the night after the wedding ended. The house is beautiful and the hosts Vera and Grant are wonderful people. They were...

The Bell House is a gem in a beautiful wine, cycling and lake region. Everything about this B&B is focused on comfort. Grant and Vera are super hosts. Vera is a marvelous cook/baker and it's clear she loves the history of the house and the area. My husband and I highly recommend a stay at the Bell House!

A group of us are driving the Ontario Table Cookbook and The Bell House is mentioned in the book so we chose to stay here. When I called to book all 3 rooms, Vera mentioned that she was not the owner from when the book was published and asked if that would make a difference to us staying there. I...

I just returned from a fabulous trip with three of my girlfriends from Harrow. We only spent 24 hours away, but when you're a mom, it is so refreshing and recharging.

It is close to numerous wineries, Lake Erie beaches, the Oxley Golf Course and many local points of interest. The rooms are very comfortable.

“We were in the Colchester Room, which faces the back yard and green fields beyond. It is very tastefully decorated with an understated french theme. This room does share a large bathroom with the guests staying in the nearby Oxley Room. We were unsure if that would be inconvenient but it never caused one moment of concern. The final room available is the Pelee Room, and it offers a private ensuite bathroom.”

“Family members travelling together can enjoy the Colchester and Oxley Bedrooms (Queen) and share the large spa bathroom. If you want your own private ensuite, then request the Pelee Room. All rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Free wi-fi throughout the home was a great bonus and unbelievable Breakfasts!!”
