Tips for Travelers about B&B's
Bed & Breakfast Code of Ethics
Contact the Association


  • B&B's range from the simple to the luxurious, with price ranges to match all budgets.
  • When visiting an area discovering its geography is important and by staying in a B&B you will also touch the soul of an area- its people.
  • Your hosts will be able to direct you to all the undiscovered treasure spots not listed in the travel brochures- that quaint restaurant, the newest artisan's shop, the antique barn etc.
  • Your individual needs will be heard and met if possible, whether it's for an ironing board or a bicycle.
  • Special diets can often be accommodated, especially if hosts are informed ahead of time.
  • In a B&B accommodation you are offered the warmth and care found only in a private home.
  • The personal touch always matter at a B&B. The bottle of wine that appears on your night stand when your hosts know you are celebrating your anniversary might be just one example.
  • You will never have to wait in long line-ups at the registration desk.
  • Most important of all, you will have arrived as a stranger but you will have left as a friend.

The Muskoka Bed and Breakfast Association follows the FOBBA (Federation of Ontario Bed and Breakfast Accommodation) Code of Ethics and each B&B is inspected by a Committee of Members before being approved as hosts.
