Famous Thousand Islands starts right here a short walk from Sleepy Hollow. Check availability and/or reserve on-line at Gananoque's Sleepy Hollow Bed & Breakfast from our web page. Built in 1905, Sleepy Hollow is a three-story mansion, complete with a turret and wraparound porch a perfect place to escape, relax, or arrange a special get together....like a wedding! Your hosts, Don and Marion Matthews, enjoy making your stay in our home a pleasant and memorable experience. Our home is enhanced with collections of vintage photographic memorabilia, toys and dolls, antiques we have collected over the years to make it our home. We have restored this romantic home to its original splendour. Our home, Sleepy Hollow, boasts an extensive, elegant living room, a plentiful library, a formal dining room, a pool table on the second floor landing, and central air conditioning for your comfort. Speaking of comfort, one of our rooms has a "SofTub" hot tubs and one has a whirlpool tub and another, a luxurious soaker tub! In a move to maintain the original building and still be safe and secure, a full sprinkler system and emergency lighting were added to Sleepy Hollow.
Travancore is the "room at the top" right under the turret roof. A king size bed, the largest of the ensuite bathrooms that includes an extra large "Ultra tub", the best whirlpool experience because it pumps air rather than water. Travancore is on the third floor and looks out on the town and the Gananoque River. A great place to hide from the everyday cares and presures of the outside world. Emerge refreshed and ready to take on whatever awaits. Travancore is the room name that most of our guests ask about. It was a province that was the Riveria of India where Don's greatgrandfather worked.

Fantastic bed and breakfast.....especially the breakfast. Rooms are nice, old house has great charm. We stayed with another couple, visited on the large front porch and played pool everyday. Great get away for friends where you can talk or play a game in a quiet setting. Don and Marion are great hosts.

We haden't read anything about this place beforehand. We just happened to drive past, thought it looked nice and stopped. Absolutely lovely place and I would recommend it to anyone. Great location, great breakfast and friendly hosts. Would come back again, if it wasn't so far away from Europe. :-)

My husband and I decided we needed a spur of the moment getaway together for some much needed time to enjoy eachother and fall in love all over again....and this was most definitely the place to do it. We actually had the place to ourselves, which was nice, and we had such a wonderful time. Don and Marion's home is so warm, beautiful and inviting. The rooms are absolutely stunning! We stayed in the Travancore. We had supper at the Athlone Inn, which was recommended by Don. The meal was absolutely delicious! We took advantage of the pool table until about 5am....and were fortunate to share a couple of games with Don! Breakfast was phenomenal...definitely one of the best we've had! We didn't meet Marion until we were actually departing, but it will definitely not be or last stay at Sleep Hollow, and we look forward to getting to know them both better! We would recommend this place to anyone...it is an absolutely wonderful experience staying in their lovely home :)
