Sample TripAdvisor Guest Reviews:
“Exceeded Our Expectations”
We have just returned from a one-night stay at 1840 Guest House and wish we could have stayed longer. From the beautifully appointed room, to the very gracious hosts, it was a perfect stay. “Pristine” is the word my husband used to describe the cleanliness, and we enjoyed all the amenities in our suite. The continental breakfast was very good and prepared in a manner that showed attention to detail. This B & B rivals 5-star hotels for pampering guests. We will definitely be back!
“Wonderful host and location!”
Booked an over night stay and were totally blown away by the location, right on the Rideau River in the historic village of Merrickville. Walking distance to eateries, shops and LCBO. Room had private bathroom, beautiful furniture and decorations. Couldn’t ask for more! Property was clean, down right spotless. My husband gave this a 14 out of 10 and I totally agree.
“Very clean and restful”
Mike was a great host and tended to our every need. The rooms were spacious, sparkling clean and had all the enmities you’d expect from a 5 star hotel room, from free WiFi and Netflix to a cozy fireplace. I would recommend this B&B to everyone!
“Mother daughter get away”
The purpose of our time away was rest and relaxation and staying at the 1840 Guest House added to the success of the weekend. Very friendly hosts, nice breakfast and close to the wonderful shopping and attractions. Sitting on the balcony chatting and watching the water was absolute heaven
“Yes, It is that nice”
I read the reviews of the 1840 Guest House and my wife and I stayed there for one night in April. I’ve read all the other reviews and totally agree with all of them. This inn is the total package. It is clean, comfortable and convenient to the village. Everything was perfect. The bed was great, the bathroom was great, the available snacks were great and the continental breakfast in the morning was more than enough for us. If you are looking for place to stay in Merrickville this should be your first choice.
“Best B&B We’ve EVER Stayed At”
This was, by far, the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Let me just try to list some of the things that are perfect about the 1840 Guest House: big room, beautiful furniture, comfortable bed, really comfortable pillows, high quality linens, romantic fireplace, plush towels, very nice common area with drinks and snacks, balcony off the common area that overlooks the Rideau Canal, great self-serve breakfast so you can get out when you need to. Mike and Dawn were incredibly gracious. Find some reason to go through Merrickville, Ontario, it’s an awesomely cute town, so you can stay here. We took a boat trip on the Rideau Canal that was really nice. Can’t wait to go back!!!
“A Beautiful Escape”
Mike and Dawn are lovely hosts of this beautiful B&B! The rooms are spacious and luxurious and very comfortable. Rooms have WIFI, Netflix, fireplaces … everything you would need if you didn’t want to ever leave your room! Beautiful shared balcony with a nice view of the river. I highly recommend the 1840 Guest House in Merrickville!
“What a gem!”
You need to stay at this Bed and Breakfast, what a beautiful place and highly recommended! We stayed July 1st for 1 night as we were heading to Ottawa for the fireworks at Parliament Hill. The room was incredibly clean, quiet, nice floor plan and had a gorgeous private bathroom. The owners Mike and Dawn were exceptionally sweet, welcomed us with genuine smiles and provided us with so much information about Merrickville. Staying here, you are within walking distance to everything: bakery, ice cream shop, the canal, dining, sightseeing & tourist exhibits. The continental breakfast was lovely, nothing beats having my cup of coffee while overlooking the river in the morning. My boyfriend and I can hardly wait to return….see you in the fall 1840 Guest House
We had a wonderful stay at this B&B in Merrickville.”
We had a wonderful stay at this B&B in Merrickville. The hosts were friendly and shared the history of their home and its décor. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. The breakfast hall is set up for guests to use at any time of day or night. It is conveniently located close to the river, the canal lock, the main streets, shopping and all amenities in Merrickville. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone intending to visit the area. Thank you Mike and Dawn.

“Wonderful host and location!”
Booked an over nite stay and were totally blown away by the location, right on the Rideau River in the historic village of Merrickville. Walking distance to eateries, shops and LCBO. Room had private bathroom, beautiful furniture and decorations. Access to fridge. Couldn’t ask for more! Property was clean, down right spotless. And our host , Mike was so friendly and welcoming. Had everything at his finger tips. Menus from local eateries, points of interest, discounts at some of the local retail establishments and intimate knowledge of the area. My husband gave this a 14 out of 10 and I totally agree.
“Best B&B in the area!”
My husband and I had an opportunity to stay at this B&B a couple of weeks ago. My husband was reluctant to stay at a B&B – this was his first stay at a B&B. What a fantastic B&B – the rooms are beautifully appointed with quilts, the bed is ultra comfortable, the rooms are meticulous and the hospitality from Mike and his wife were out of this world. The rooms are located upstairs – very private – you do not feel as though you are encroaching on the owners. The location is walking distance to great shopping and restaurants. The continental breakfast and the selection of coffees and teas was abundant. The true testament to our experience is the fact that my husband wants to return – in fact we’ve already booked our next visit. We are looking forward to our room facing the Rideau.
“A terrific getaway!”
My wife and I stayed one night at this terrific “getaway” location. Mike and Dawn have obviously invested a lot into creating a “home-away-from-home” atmosphere. If you are looking for a VERY affordable, spotless, tranquil location within a few steps of charming Merrickville and the town’s specialty shops then this is a place you must consider. The things that most people look for waiting for you: the bed was very comfortable, the room we had (Number 2) was spacious, the room and ensuite were spotless. The owners set up a “continental breakfast” just outside the rooms and provide a suggestion for a local restaurant should you be inclined to have a full breakfast. This aspect goes a long way to making this experience so affordable! We will be returning with the intention to stay two nights and indulge in the “spa package”. We will add our vote to those who have already left their reviews- Two Thumbs Up!! Steven and Lynn, Bainsville, Ont.
“Leaf peepin mini vacation.”
If you are planning a trip along 43 highway in eastern Ontario be sure to book a reservation at the 1840 Guest House in Merrickville. We had planned on one night and stayed three. Beautiful B&B, new, modern and spotless along with wonderful hosts. The town of Merrickville is a gem and Mike was a great help and kept us busy checking out the local points of interest. A very relaxing and enjoyable three days.
