We loved staying with Jim and Marg. We'd had a rough time with delayed flights and lots of driving, but their welcome into their lovely house was something really special. While respectful of our own space if required, they were also very easy to chat to and we feel like we've made some new friends! The house and the room are beautiful, full of Marg's fabulous artwork. We also loved relaxing in the big garden and gazebo. We really wish we could have stayed longer, would highly recommend.

Jim and Marg are great host, we had a great time in their beautiful house, walked along the riverside, walked to the restaurant nearby, the room is clean and nicely arranged with a private bath room, breakfast prepared for us by Jim and Marg is wonderful, like the muffin, oakmeal, jam and fruit etc. Will come back if we have a chance.

Jim and Marg have a lovely home with a very comfortable upstairs room. We enjoyed our stay and had no problems finding the place or accomplishing our tasks in town. They recommended a very nice restaurant for a late dinner and we really enjoyed it.

For anyone traveling to the Algonquin area Jim and Marg are absolutely incredible hosts and their home is lovely and relaxing! The room itself is perfect for a couple or couple with a kiddo, even has kitchen supplies including microwave and fridge and a private bathroom! Right across the street from the river in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. There's even a screened gazebo, which is magical for those of us coming from the city. Jim and Marg and their sweet dogs add even more charm and warmth to a lovely location. Highly recommend! Thank you so much!

Jim and Marg were very welcoming and hospitable. Their home is fantastic! We were able to enjoy the gazebo in the evening in their spacious back yard as well as a cup of coffee at their patio table the next morning. The room and bathroom showed great care and consideration for guests, with many amenities. I loved the small fridge with yummy fruit for breakfast, which served as a place ot keep our own items, since we were traveling. We did not use the microwave but apreciated that it was available. A French press for the coffee that was provided was over the top! There was even a barkeepers opener for our bottle of wine! We lacked nothing. Lovely room, lovely home, lovely people. We hope to return!

Fun, considerate couple in our early 60's who work from home.
We have 2 (non-allergic) darling little white dogs named Mini and Emma and a beautiful home we enjoy sharing. The atmosphere of our home is peaceful
and comfortable. Respect and love are important to us and having you stay with us will be a treat.
