40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast welcomes spring with open arms. After a very long, cold and snowy winter this year, we can't wait to show you just some of the many flowers that bloom in our gardens and planters!
When you stay at 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast in the spring time, it is really a feast for all your senses! You will have the opportunity to have the scent of lily of the valley wafting bumblebees playing on the chive flowers watching the squirrels steal the strawberries
How clean is it? Well former guests have said on TripAdvisor that we rate 5/5 for cleanliness, so I think that’s pretty good.
However, cleanliness can come at a cost – and to much more than just the pocketbook.
Did you know there are over 70,000 chemicals commercially produced today? Chemical sensitivity is defined as a reaction to small doses of chemicals contained in air, food, and water. Since most of the chemicals used in cleaning products have been created since World War II, and more and more chemicals being used, the number of people dealing with sensitivities has increased dramatically.
Shrove or Pancake Tuesday is associated with celebrations before the fasting and religious obligations associated with Lent in the Christian world. The French celebrate the timing with Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday.

The pancakes we serve at 40 Bay Street B&B are made with baking powder, so that they are light and fluffy, versus the crepe, which is much flatter, and often served rolled around some type of filling.
I'm always surprised when we get enquires asking if we will take bookings from people arriving on a motorcycle...but after hearing their stories about some of their "welcomes" at other B&Bs, I can understand their concerns.
The Parry Sound area is a great place to explore on your bike - most of the roads are paved and very scenic. However, I also realize that most bikers want to cover as much ground as they possibly can, so here are a couple of great web sites to help you plan your trip:
Visit Georgian Bay has created a 7-day touring route around the entire bay, including places to stay, eat and visit
MotoWhere? which has a collection of rides posted by people who have actually traversed the route they describe
For the non-motorized bikers there are over 225 kms of major on-road cycling routes in the West Parry Sound Area.
