With hotels fully booked during a recent business trip, and never having stayed at a B&B before, I didn’t know what to expect. However, from the moment I arrived at Colonial Creekside, I had no regrets. With a welcome basket of snacks (much appreciated after a long day of work) and comfy slippers waiting for me, I was made to feel right at home. I stayed in Suite Chocolate which had a balcony with a view to a lovely spring-fed creek;  I was able to open the door every morning to check the weather without having to leave my room. The bed was very comfortable and I was surprised at how well I slept, given that I normally don’t sleep well at all when away from home. There was an en-suite bathroom and everything was SO clean! I was very impressed. You choose your breakfast and it’s waiting for you to enjoy in your suite. No need to sit in a shared kitchen. My only regret is not making time to enjoy the indoor pool. I’m hoping to return very soon! A.S., Markham, ON

I’m not really a B&B person. I’m more of a hotel person because in my mind, hotels tend to be clean, centrally located, private and chocked full of amenities. Colonial Creekside is such a treat with the added bonus of the attention to detail that only a bed and breakfast can bring. Situated on a spacious property with a clear water spring-fed creek; wonderful for a quick and peaceful outdoor walk. When we pulled up, I wasn’t sure what to expect. We were cheerfully greeted at the door and offered comfortable slippers. Such hospitality! The beginning of ongoing luxurious attention to detail. This B&B is three suites big which equates to a relaxing and quiet getaway. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom. Suite Melon is the smallest of the three but is delectably decorated and still quite large. Great in-suite dining area and spacious en-suite bathroom. Suite Chocolate is the largest of the three and boasts a separate private living room. It has a balcony with a great view. We stayed in Suite Cherry. IMMACULATELY clean with a separate sitting area. The attention to detail in this Bed and Breakfast is impeccable. From the en-suite bathroom complete with spacious walk-in shower, to the corner romantic fire place (electric). Our room came with a private balcony as well which overlooked the lushness of the property. Don’t let the small number of suites fool you. These hosts are so intuitive that they have provided for even the most simplistic or complex of needs you may have. Hungry? Don’t worry, pick from a great selection of breakfast items and find them ready for you in the morning to be enjoyed in your in-suite breakfast dining area. Stressed? Don’t worry, there is a wonderful indoor pool with a great view. The pool room is kept toasty warm and the poolside furnishings are perfect for lounging about after a great swim. Need to Stay Connected? No problem, WiFi is available at no charge, as is cable TV. Feeling Romantic? In-room fireplace coupled with the room furnishings makes for a great ambiance. Want to enjoy a glass of Merlot while curled up in a chair by the fireplace? No problem, the kitchenette has a corkscrew or bottle opener on hand and ready, along with caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee ready to brew. Don’t feel like brewing? No problem, electric kettle, microwave and yes even instant coffee is available on hand. Rainy afternoon and nothing on TV? No problem, there’s even a small collection of DVDs available with something for everyone….you get the picture. The B&B is centrally located; only 10 minutes from St. Jacob’s, and just a few minutes from Downtown Kitchener and Uptown Waterloo. We were able to enjoy a great combination of rural and urban both in the surrounding City as well as at this great B&B. What really struck me with this location was the price in relation to what you actually received in return…upscale, peaceful, clean surroundings, centrally located. We’ll definitely be back!

My good friend and I returned to Colonial Creekside the other day for a relaxing overnight stay while visiting the St. Jacobs area. The delightful hosts are happy to share the history of this lovely B&B (really very much like a boutique hotel) – tastefully decorated throughout, and with little touches here and there to honor famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. We were thrilled to spend time enjoying the beautiful indoor heated pool after dining in a local nearby restaurant, Mediterraneo (only 3 blocks down @ University Avenue), that we were advised we try out – it was delicious! We were happy that there was also room for another friend that we brought along this trip – she was equally impressed with the accommodations including the fantastic indoor pool, our welcome baskets upon arrival and the plentiful continental breakfast basket in the morning (from selections offered on a menu). It was another great stay! Hope we get to return here when we visit St. Jacobs again! D&M, Buffalo, NY

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home! It was the perfect spot to unwind for a few days after our wedding. The privacy and quiet solitude was splendid, and the indoor pool was stellar; we hope to be back for another weekend escape! Thank you for everything you did to make our time extra-special for us – we don’t want to leave! A&M, Millbank, ON

With nature all around us, we swam in our own private INDOOR pool by the moonlight. We felt like millionaires. The luxuries and details of our Suites Cherry and Chocolate have made this the relaxing retreat we needed from our everyday jobs. Although here on business, it felt like a pure vacation in every way. Those who stay in hotels have no idea just how superior an accommodation Colonial Creekside is…private, quiet and immaculate with in-room breakfast dining, ensuite baths and wonderful furnished balconies. Who says you can’t spend less and receive more!! M&M, Bobcaygeon, ON & Japan

This is one of the most unique bed & breakfast lodgings anywhere. My daughter and I have stayed twice now and will definitely stay time and time again with so many lovely attractions in the area.The large indoor pool is beyond words, making you feel as though you are in a beautiful yet quiet hotel. The hosts are extremely sweet and accomodating, with slippers to welcome you and a tour of the house along with details as to where to find everything. The large breakfast basket is wonderful and can be enjoyed at your leisure. The rooms are impeccably clean and designer decorated, spacious and comfortable. And if thats not enough, the rates are very reasonable; why would anyone stay in a hotel when you can get more privacy and more luxury at a fraction of the cost!! You will absolutely love your stay here at Colonial Creekside. See you again very soon! F&M, Welland,ON

Your B&B gets the top award for luxury, cleanliness and décor. I have been in many, and this is by far the most relaxing, yet with the utmost quality. The art, the relaxed private in-room breakfast and last but not least – the AMAZING INDOOR POOL, compare to none! Loved every moment and it was hard to leave. See you again! E.R., Windsor, ON

How can I possibly comment on perfection. The proprietors of Colonial Creekside are the consumate hosts. Our stay was fussed over as if we were the only persons that have ever laid our heads there. Attention to detail is immaculate and tasteful. We are already planning another stay in Suite Chocolate. Do yourself a favour and pamper yourself with the most serene and comfortable stay you will ever experience.
