and River House Bed & Breakfast

"Strangers are Friends Waiting to Happen"

If you are interested in booking accommodation please us.

Bed &BreakfastCome visit us at our home by the river.

The River House Bed and Breakfast is a quaint cottage style home. The guest room (the loft) is very spacious and comfortable with a king size bed and a single, or can be made up as three single beds. There is a small efficiency kitchen area, which consists of a counter top fridge, microwave, toaster, tea kettle, and coffee pot.

The main floor suite is a cozy bedroom with a queen bed and your own satellite TV. It has a four piece ensuite and a sun/sitting room. It has a private verandah and entrance to the suite at the back of the house, but you are also most welcome to use the front verandah and entrance. If you wish, you can have access to the kitchen through the connecting door. A gate in the back garden leads to the bike/walking trail.

The rate per night is $120.00 Including Taxes

BreakfastBreakfast is served in the dining room or in the side garden. Our objective is to create "a home away from home" for our guests so it is a very casual atmosphere. It is country living at its best and only minutes to the village of Lakefield, or to the city of Peterborough.

BassThe Otonabee River is noted for its fishing for Carp, Bass, Pickerel and Muskie, and although we do not fish, we enjoy watching others enjoying the sport.

Enjoy the view of the river from your room or take a coffee or a glass of wine to the verandah.

trailSo whether you are walking on the Rotary Greenway Trail, located on the old railway bed behind the house or along the river, there is lots to see - all kinds of wild flowers and birds, ducks, turtles, and if you are lucky you may even see the beaver swimming around. We can provide you with bicycles if you would rather go for a bike ride. In winter, the Rotary Greenway Trail is kept groomed and is a great place to cross country ski.

We have lived here for 32 years and have never ceased to appreciate the beauty around us.

Our River House B&B will suit all your needs for a short stay or an extended stay. Please join us on your travels through the Kawarthas. We are conveniently located 15 minutes north of Peterborough and 5 minutes south of Lakefield.
