About the property

By-the-Pond Bed & Breakfast is located at 9604 County Road 2 East, about 2 Km. east of the Town of Cobourg and about 8 km west of the Village of Grafton. Easy to find, the B&B occupies part of a 2 1/2 story red brick Century Farmhouse on 1+ acres in the rural countryside of Hamilton Township, on the Waterfront Trail between Toronto and Kingston.

Facing South at the base of a hill, the House overlooks the fruit and vegetable garden. With foundation flower beds on three sides and a cedar deck on the East side to get the morning sun, breakfast can be enjoyed in a pleasant and colourful surrounding. Other flower beds bound a surface-water stone creek North of the deck.

The spring-fed Pond is located at the south west corner of the property, with a tall cedar hedge on the south side, flower beds on the west, north and east sides, and a sitting/sunning area within the east flower bed.

With a tall board fence bordering the County Road 2 side and a screen of large cedar, pine, maple, poplar and apple trees on the other three fenced sides, the property is very private and restful. Apple, lilac and flowering crab trees provide added fragrance in season as well as food for the birds.

The parking area is out of sight from the County Road and large enough for cars with trailers.

For touring cyclists: this B&B is part of the Welcome Cyclists Network and we are cyclists ourselves.

* An overnight lockup is available for touring bicycles and gear. * A special high-pressure bicycle pump and bicycle tools are available on site.
