Ready for Summer
Betty and Tony are receiving a lot of reservations already for the summer. It is satisfying to see so many guests returning
again. If you are planning to visit us this summer book soon so you will not be disappointed please.
You can reserve
through this web site for free. It is a secure reservation engine where you can trust the safety of your information. It is
quick and easy and you will receive a confirmation straight away.
The new boat last year - the "Blithe Speerit"
- has survived the winter in the water. Right now she is being "prettified". Last year she had all sorts of re-construction
and replacement jobs done. Now the goal is make her look appealing and ready to sit on and relax. Let's hope this can be achieved
during the next few weeks!!
The gardens are ready to be planted and lst week we were ready to start. Now on Mother's
Day it has been blowing, sleeting, raining and even snowing. Even the ducks don't like it much and there Have been two floating
in our fish pond. Wouldn't it be cute if we had baby ducklings on the fish pond?
The Robins have nests all around -
they started building before we returned from Florida and they thought this was a quiet and peaceful house!!! How wrong they
were. The mother who is beside the front door is starting to get used to us.
Come and see us soon. we really do enjoy
having guests in our home. There are lots of great shows on at Casino Rama and many festivals around Orillia during the summer
Betty and Tony are looking forward to your visit.

The house is now redecorated throughout the great room, dining room and washroom. It all looks fresh and different. New
drapes in the living room and dining room make a very nice look to the reception rooms.
The "Blithe Speerit"
is sitting on the dock and after a great deal of work by John Kelly and Tony she is now looking in very good shape with very
little rotten wood on her. She is varnished up and has a sign with her name on either side. The funnel is freshly painter
and the roof fixed up. ALso she has actually been out on the water twice, once as far as the Port of Orillia - thanks
to our boating neighbour Ron.
Now as winter approaches she is being winterized with metal covers to protect her from
the elements of winter and to maintain her fresh appearance.
Come and enjoy a relaxing weekend at Betty and Tony's when
the cool weather arrives. Curl up in a lazy boy chair and read or watch TV. Enjoy a stroll down Mississauga Street going into
the wonderful original shops which will be soon bursting with Christmas ideas.
If not - see you next summer when you
can enjoy the garden and waterfront again.
Warmest wishes to friends new and old.

Betty and Tony have returned from a winter in Venice, Florida, and are joining Sherry again to welcome you to their home.
They have hopefully come back refreshed and ready to renew old friendships and make new ones.
You can now book
all three of our rooms on this web site, two rooms through BBCanada and one through Booking.com.
The Orillia Opera
House has a full summer theatre schedule called "Laugh Out Loud" and promises to have some fun shows for your enjoyment.
We are a great spot to stay before a show. Come at noon and enjoy a relaxing afternoon beside the water in our pretty garden.
Have you seen our two new life sized statues we put in last year? If you want to have some exercise before the show come and
cycle in the park on our complementary bicycles or paddle out to the lake by canoe or paddle boat.
Casino Rama has a
great line up of performers too. This weekend we had someone come from Germany for two nights just to see the show!

Fall is arriving fast and the trees are starting to turn. Our large maple has several red branches which are catching the
sun right now and looking beautiful.
At Thanksgiving there is the Images Studio Tour in the region. There are some amazing
artists around Orillia and area and are well worth a visit.
Also at Thanksgiving there is the Rama Pow-wow in the village
of Rama. Another must for a visit.
We are rapidly filling up over the weekend, but there are still a few vacancies.
Come and see us at Betty and Tony's before the winter sets in.

Ready for Summer !
Betty and Tony's B&B is ready for summer! The gardens look wonderful and the canoe is sitting waiting to be taken out.
Our board walk and sea wall have just been fixed up and leveled beautifully by Terry Knappett Enterprises. Terry came in
by 60 foot barge with a huge backhoe on board and adjusted the steel wall and releveled the boardwalk. He didn't interfere
with one plant or blade of grass. Very impressive. Terry does a lot of work on Lakes Couchiching, Simcoe and Sparrow because
of his barge and expertise. He also builds some beautiful custom homes and sea walls.
We recommend his website at www.terryknappettenterprises.com
. We have no hesitation in recommending his work.
Terry has a charming personality and is currently working to get his
many children through university. He lives in Severn Bridge Hamlet on Sparrow Lake.
Come and sit beside our water and
enjoy your summer reading.
