“Great place”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a six night at the cottage and it was very good. We was impressed with the suite they are very comfortable bed and pillows and very clean. The place is very quiet and charming..
The owner was lovable, because my kids broke a rocking chair. The only complain for us, I felt a little scared to let my kids play outside because he wanted to prevent dogs barking.

Thanks for the kind words Marianela: Your children seemed to enjoy playing in the swimming pool everyday. Your family played ball and also barbecued and picnicked daily. The dogs barked when you allowed the children to approach them without an adult present.

“Great location!”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed five nights at the Liftlock B&B in the two executive suites. The rooms are in a separate building from the main house and are connected via a door. The kitchenettes are small but are clean and have all necessary materials (plates, bowls, cutlery, as well as microwave, toaster, coffee maker). There are small tables fit for two in each suite and a small sitting area off the back with a table for four. Bedding was provided and was clean and comfortable. The children loved the pool and canoes. The location is perfect for people wanting to access Peterborough shopping and restaurants. The only negative (although the children saw this as a positive) was the dogs. They tend to bark when you are moving about the property and there can be some odour from their feces (not in the unit but when you are outside).

Thanks for the good words. These guests had 4 boys, 9 yrs of age who screamed at the top of their lungs. Yes, the dogs barked. I had to quiet the boys and the dogs. Unfortunately these guests were leaving as the garbage was being put out and yes there was an odour

“6 acres of serene beauty”

We were desperate for a quiet getaway and stumbled upon this quiet cottage right on the canal. The footage has two rooms which can be rented separately and were very clean and tastefully furnished. It had all the necessary needs- tea,coffee, dishes utensils glasses in the mini kitchenette. We enjoyed our canoe rides on the very calm canal. It was absolutely serene and peaceful. Lots of space to enjoy nature. Doreen, the owner, also has some Alpacas which are very beautiful looking animals and are very friendly.
Doreen made us feel very welcome and comfortable. It is located very close to the Peterborough Lift a Locks ( you can walk from the cottage however we drove). These lift locks are the highest hydraulic locks in the world. Quite fascinating. Restaurants and shopping also within a 10 minute drive. We visited the FREE Riverview Zoo which was quite nice. They even provide wheelchairs and strollers if needed at no charge. Well worth it. It was a very relaxing and beautiful vacation.

“Wonderful little retreat, private, quiet, and lovely”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Phil and I had the private little room with the porch/deck facing the back of the property and we've decided it will be OUR room when we book again and again. A quiet little location, end of the road and a nicely laid out property (I'd say put in more flowers and it would be perfect, grin - but I know that's a lot of work).

Our host, Doreen, was a gem, she was so friendly, laid back and engaging with great stories of her life (we were fascinated and asked). She was very accommodating with breakfast times and was so helpful in making sure we felt at home (we had access to the canoes, pool, sun room which was also the breakfast room, fed the Alpacas...)

The room was well maintained, clean, welcoming and our private deck made us decide to order dinner and stay in to enjoy the evening (Sorry Doreen, we seem to have misplaced a fork!).

Breakfast was all home made. Fresh breakfast cake with FRESH peaches (and yoghurt) Light fluffy omelette, sausage, potato, cheese, ham croquettes, offered toast, tea, coffee... looking forward trying what else is in Doreen's recipe book

Pool was shallow (4ft? deep), perfectly maintained, refreshingly cool and not over chlorinated.

The area to canoe was perfect for a little evening / early morning paddle (likely would get busier other times).

I would call this BB a retreat, but one can easily make it romantic, next time we'll bring candles ;-)

Reason I did not give it full stars for room is to gain full 5 the room must be expectational and not just lovely ;-)

We'll be back!

We had a lovely two night stay at Liftlock Bed and Breakfast. Our room was immaculate, and very comfortable. The setting was gorgeous, a piece of the country right in town...so quiet, lots of birds, saw a heron and a fox. Great walking trails right there, great view of the canal and swing bridge. Lovely breakfast and the owner was delightful, we learned a lot while chatting with her after breakfast. Would go back for sure!
