Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Stayed one night in queen room. The house has lots of character and was in a very convenient location to walk downtown. But despite it being windy and cool outside, our room was stifling hot through the night. Only two windows open a few inches, which doesn't let enough air in. Also, Hugel Ave is a busy street, so expect...

Management response:

Thanks Steve for your feedback. We didn't expect such heat on the weekend, and we normally do provide fans in each room. Our apologies for the absence of some cooling device. Appreciate your note. Ross & Alicia

This property is perfect. We are not normally B&B people but being the middle of winter in Midland, we didn't want to end up at a hotel full of either hockey players or snowmobilers. This quiet property fit the bill perfectly. The hosts Alicia and Ross were accommodating and knowledgeable of the area. The bed comfortable and all of the...

Management response:

Thank you, Paula, for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again sometime. We agree we should be listed under B and Bs. Alicia and Ross

Enjoyed breakfast, pleasant hostess but suffered through hottest nights this summer. 6 of us booked 3 bedrooms. Stayed with my husband in a small bedroom with a full size bed, 2 partly propped windows and cheap fan. No sleep. Also, hosts use the bathroom and knocked on door while I was using it.

Management response:

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the breakfast. Sorry for the heatwave. We are getting quotes on an air conditioning system for the entire house. Our guests share a bathroom. When we are full, we allow guests to use the host's private bathroom as well, which is the one you were in. Thank you for choosing the...

About the neighbourhood
Midland is the largest port on Georgian Bay. Once the hub of the lumber and ship building industry it is now the gateway to the Muskoka and 30,000 island tourist region. Georgian Bay and the 30,000 islands offer the finest fresh water cruising in the world. The Town of Midland, just 90 minutes north of Toronto, is the perfect home base for exploring this beautiful and historic region. The Captain's House is just four blocks from Midland Harbour where you can book day cruises on the Bay, charter fishing boats and rent small craft. We're two blocks away from King Street, Midland's main drag, with it's great restaurants, shops, pubs and cafes. The Tay Shore Trail, built on an old railroad right of way, runs along the shore, past Ste-Marie Among the Hurons and Martyr's Shri... more
