Betty and Tony's Waterfront Bed and Breakfast

Orillia, Ontario 

Betty and Tony have finally retired after 24 years in business and are enjoying a summer of "smelling the roses"!

We are missing our guests and want to thank all past guests for their support and pleasant times we have enjoyed with you. Any time you are in Orillia drop round and have a "cup of tea" and a chat. We would love to see you if we are at home.


To new guests finding this site, we appologise that we are no longer taking guests - you should just have come sooner!

Betty and Tony are announcing that they are retiring from their B&B after twenty-four years in business. They are still honouring all advanced bookings and gift certificates. Make sure to phone us if you have a gift certificate and tell us who you are and when you would like to redeem it.

To our past guests and friends, please contact us if you are coming to Orillia and would like to stay. We know we will miss having guests around so give us a try! Please remind us if you were here before - our memories are both getting worse! 

Betty and Tony are both well and will be still be living in their home - which they designed to retire into thirty years ago. Pop in and see them if you are in Orillia.

Thank you to the thousands who have enriched our lives over the last twenty-four years. We have had some great conversations around the breakfast table, shared many a bottle of wine with guests on our back deck and enjoyed dinner delivered from a local restaurant. For this we would like to thank all our past guests who have given us so many wonderful memories.

 In twenty-four years we never had a thing stolen or broken. Bed and Breakfast guests are wonderful people! 

We came to Canada in June 1964 - a young couple with a 5 month old daughter, Nicola. We spent three years in Arvida (now part of Jonquiere) in Quebec. In 1967 we moved to Orillia where we have been ever since. We built our current home in 1985 and it was planned as a retirement home where we could live on one floor. In 1992 we started running Betty and Tony's Waterfront Bed and Breakfast there. What fun we have had and what great people we have met. So many of whom are now classed as good friends. In our mid seventies we have finally decided to stop advertising, and start a life as retired people while we still have good health and a reasonably high level of activity! There re still many places to visit in this world.


All the very best to anyone reading this.
