We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Silverfern BnB. The food was FANTASTIC, and Nichole was an awesome host. She lives across the street but she is always at the inn helping out new guests, cooking or cleaning. Very inviting and will be back!

Our Home Away from Home

We absolutely love staying at the Silver Fern. It is a beautifully restored home from the 1800's. The beds are super comfortable and there is always plenty of hot water.Gary's breakfasts are a real treat and always include fresh fruit and meats. We have stayed there many times and everything is consistently top notch.

Charming place!

Gary and Nicole provided wonderful breakfasts each morning, service was amazing. Our room was very comfortable and very nicely decorated. Beds were like sleeping on a cloud they were so comfy. Great location in the midst of a national park, so many activities at your fingertips. Would highly recommend this beautiful B & B.

Great B&B - Great Location

Gary is a great host. The B&B is charming and very clean. Walking to shops, towpath, train ride, bike rentals and restaurants in Peninsula is a real plus. Don't hesitate to choose the Silver Fern!

Incredible Find!

5 on August 28, 2017

This was literally the perfect little find for my husband and I for an evening away from our kiddos. I can't remember the girls name, but she was so sweet, and so helpful the entire time, and made an amazing breakfast! I'm so grateful there are still little places like this around to find peace, quiet, and comfort away from home. We definitely will be returning!
