If you're an avid gardener, or even just a wanna-be with a brown thumb, then you should consider booking one of our deluxe rooms when you’re coming to 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast.
These rooma have a spectacular view of the perennial flower and vegetable gardens, and the Garden Room has a private deck accessed through sliding glass doors to get a fantastic view of the gardens. The deck has two lounging chairs, as well as a table with umbrella and two folding chairs. Shady in the mornings and sunny in the afternoons, it is a great place to savour that first cup of tea or coffee in the morning, enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon, and an excellent location to unwind at the end of the day.
The Deluxe Rooms are furnished with twin beds or a king-sized bed, seating bed and en-suite bath. All our rooms have televisions.
Since the deck makes a great gathering spot, it is a wonderful room for people who are visiting with others in Parry Sound; friends who are traveling together and want separate beds, or those that smoke – although the house is a non-smoking environment, you are welcome to smoke out on the deck.
Our "secret" recipe for 40 Bay Street Granola is no longer a secret! So many people have requested the recipe we have finally agreed to share it. Chef Simon created this recipe for us the second season 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast was open, and it has been a favourite ever since! Whenever it is baking (one of the many secrets!) people stop and ask what that heavenly smell is.
And guess what? It tastes even better than it smells!
40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast Granola
4 cups steel cut oats
1 cup walnut pieces (I find they toast the nicest of any of the nuts)
½ cup wheat germ
½ cup pepitas (unshelled pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup flax seeds
Mix together in air tight container and store until ready to bake. For each cup of mix, put on greased cookie sheet, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of cooking oil (I use olive oil) and bake in slow oven (325) for 20 minutes – or longer if you like it really toasty – I would suggest stirring it half way through so the cereal along the outside edges doesn't burn.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons (per cup of mix) brown sugar and stir. When cool, you can put it in another container and use as required.
