Harlem Stonegate B&B is a superb choice for visitors who are searching for a blend of charm, peace and quiet, and a convenient location from which to experience or discover the natural beauty of Southeastern Ontario.
We offer: * an inspirational, comfortable, non-smoking environment, to unwind, relax, and rejuvenate; * charming period elegance with modern accents and pastoral views well suited to romantic getaways, intimate weddings or elopements; and * exceptional, personalized service, and are available to give constant care and attention to the needs of our guests.
Harlem Stonegate B&B is situated in an amazing 1860's stone farmhouse and adjoining carriage house, originally built to support a 200-acre dairy farm. Restored in the mid 1990's (and recently updated), using carefully chosen traditional materials, and while offering every modern comfort still retains its charming stone farmhouse style. The current property is approximately 50-acres and includes a tranquil sugar bush, peaceful waving hayfields, serene wetlands and fascinating majestic post-and-beam bank barns.
The B&B is arranged on two floors (with access by stairs) and decorated with original photography, paintings, and stain glass. On the ground floor, enjoy healthy drinks and snacks, good conversation, or just read in our comfortable lounge or welcoming airy sunroom with picturesque views. Every morning, savour a delicious full gourmet breakfast served in our charming period dining area or outside on the screened veranda during the summer months.
Guestrooms are arranged on the second floor in a separate wing of our historic limestone farmhouse. There you'll experience our beautifully decorated rooms with gorgeous views of the property. Each room is furnished with care in a modern farmhouse chic style but still maintains a period look, which complements the striking original pine floors, gable ceiling and 2-foot external stonewalls. All rooms have a private bathroom or ensuite, are luxuriously appointed, and equipped with complementary amenities.
Guests have free reign to stroll the property (weather and safety permitting), venture out to surrounding activities, or can simply enjoy the warmth and cozy ambiance of the main guest facilities, which includes a separate upstairs reading area. Relax with your favourite book, tasty beverage, or enjoy a good conversation in our lovely garden gazebo from where you can enjoy wonderful views; or meditate in the yoga pergola, which overlooks the wetlands, teaming with wildlife.
