In the middle of a residential area in the small town of Gravenhurst in Ontario is the Blaincroft Bed & Breakfast, a small, cozy bed and breakfast in the Muskoka region that rents two very comfortable guest rooms. We arrive on our Ontario trip after a beautiful day in the lake region north of Toronto and are welcomed by Marsha Blain, a very friendly hostess. She and her husband Bryan bought this hundred-year-old house in the middle of a large lot with impressive old deciduous trees as their retirement home after they retired from school where they had worked as teachers. Marsha tells us that while they were still in Toronto they used to vacation in the Muskoka area and tossed around that lovely house on Hughson Street in Gravenhurst. And when they finally finished their regular working life, they decided to buy their dream home. Since then, their purpose in life has been to renovate and restore the house - and they have succeeded with flying colors. Seldom have I felt at home in a strange environment as quickly as in this bed and breakfast in Gravenhurst.

Warm hosts at Blaincroft B&B in Gravenhurst, Ontario

After Bryan Blain, in typical work clothes, as we are celebrating during our stay, and as friendly as his wife, personally welcomed us, Marsha takes us into the larger of her two guest rooms. We enter a spacious room that is very tastefully decorated in shades of green, blue and white. In addition to a comfortable bed with a thick mattress, the room has a comfortable sitting area with a large sofa and armchair, a closet and a chest of drawers. We can even make ourselves coffee, tea or cocoa, as in a good hotel.

Ideal location for exploring the Muskoka Lakes

Blaincroft B&B is ideal for a multi-day stay in the Muskoka Lakes region. Historic mail ships like the Segwun, which offer daily excursions on the lakes, leave from Gravenhurst harbor - just a few minutes from the bed and breakfast. Just a few steps away is the Bethune Memorial House National Historic Site, the house where a famous Canadian doctor once lived. And Gravenhurst town center is also just a few minutes' walk away.

 

Breakfast on request at Blaincroft B&B in Gravenhurst, Ontario

When we take our breakfast the next morning, we experience a very pleasant surprise. There are no eggs with bacon as usual for breakfast in Canada. Marsha had asked me the evening before if we had any specific requests for our food, and since we'd been fed some sumptuous Canadian breakfast for several weeks, I'd asked them for a light meal without too much fat. What has been served up is something to be proud of: a delicious freshly made fruit salad, homemade porridge with raisins, nuts, cinnamon and sugar and salmon with poached eggs. We also get as much freshly squeezed orange juice, toast and coffee as we want. And the whole thing is served in a nice breakfast room, where tasty silverware invites you to eat. The perfect start to another beautiful day in the Muskoka region.
