Our large historic Queen Anne style home sits on a half acre park-like lot backed by a Our large historic Queen Anne style home sits on a half acre park-like lot backed by a secluded wooded area with quiet neighbors on either side. Mrs. T.'s BnB was the set for two full length movies! The home was built in 1880 but in 1906, when the trains came to Parry Sound, it was set on logs and pulled by horses down the hill to its present location. William Beatty, son of the founder of Parry Sound, William Beatty, was its first owner. A picture of our home hangs in the Parry Sound Museum. There have only been four families live in the house since 1880. Each of the three guest rooms is named after one of the three previous families. There are three bedrooms for rent with occupancy of 2 per room. The rooms are on the second floor, beautifully appointed and clean. Beatty Suite has an en-suite bathroom and the two other rooms share one updated three piece bathroom on the second floor. There is also a three piece washroom with shower on the first floor for guest use. The Beatty Suite (queen bed) also has a fireplace and two couches, one in the small sitting area and a new pull out sofa bed in the adjoining sun room. The Sweeney Room (queen bed, second largest room) is beside the washroom and opens onto a beautiful new deck overlooking the gardens. The Wheatley Suite (smallest room, double bed)also opens onto the deck as above. The attic (when whole house is rented) has a playroom with two smaller beds, and a double bed in a small separate room. These accommodations are all lovingly restored and decorated. Bedding is high quality with ironed sheets. There are serviceable closets and dressers, and a tv, air-conditioning and internet in each room. Each floor meets fire safety requirements with smoke and carbon monoxide detector. The woodwork of the staircase, second floor hall and doors are original to the house. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the more formal parlour or living room (antique rosewood couch and chairs, four stained glass windows) and another in the dining room which keep the rooms cozy in cooler weather. Both fires will be set on cool mornings at breakfast times. The walnut dining room table can seat twelve. The chandelier adds sparkle to the silver tea set. An gas fireplace warms up the family room where we can be found in the evenings. The kitchen is updated and has a large microwave, fridge and new stove. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Please let us know of any allergies or dietary concerns. Mrs. T. will have an assortment of fresh fruit, breads and muffins, eggs, bacon and or sausages, cereals, yogurts and toast /jam/honey/peanut butter. On alternate days, she serves up pancakes and the extras. Coffees, teas and a variety of juices will also be on offer. Third floor has coffee maker, tea kettle, mini-fridge and microwave for your use. Breakfast is usually set for 8:30. In her capacity as an associate mediator, Mrs. T. has been hired to work on Wednesdays at the courthouse for 10:00 in the FLIC office as the IRC.
Grounds include front yard facing the street, side yard with yard swing, first back yard leading to another back yard. On the grounds you will find perennial beds, vegetable beds, fire pit, water feature, large Victorian bird bath, screened gazebo with comfortable seating, café tables, octagonal picnic table, two lawn swings (one for snoozing!), and Muskoka chairs for gatherings. Birds, squirrels and chipmunks enjoy the seeds left in the two bird feeders. Sunsets over the Sound are spectacular and can be viewed from the wicker chairs or dining area on the front wrap-around porch. The grounds are lit with solar lights and are very pretty at night.
Our home is located within walking distance of major attractions in Parry Sound (the harbour, two beaches, fitness trail, Stockey Center for the Performing Arts, tour boats). Barnaby, our little dog (Papillon) is friendly, well-behaved and quiet and does not interact with guests unless invited.
In consideration of other guests, no children under twelve unless you are renting the whole house. Rooms in attic then also available. Children twelve and older are welcome at all other times.
Mrs. T.s B. and B. is situated close to the two town beaches. Friendly neighbors own well maintained spacious homes and lots. Parry Sound is a train town with two main lines: you will hear the trains rumble but usually no whistle blows near our bnb. The street can be busy at times with folks accessing the two beaches.
