5 ways 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast helps look after the environment!

With Earth Day coming up next week, I thought I would share some of the ways we help the environment here at 40 Bay Street. We are also very fortunate that many of our guests are of the same mind-set and participate while visiting!


We try to be energy efficient by:

  • Purchasing energy efficient appliances

  • When we renovated, we made sure the walls, ceilings, and windows were properly insulated

  • We use compact fluorescent bulbs for lights, and put lights in public areas on timers

  • All our bedrooms have ceiling fans to help move the air around in the rooms, rather than turning on the heat or air-conditioner

Every July and August, Parry Sound celebrates a the Festival of the Sound, is now in it's 35 year.  The three-week (mostly) chamber music festival along with an influx of classical music lovers from all over the world.  This music festival started in 1979 when Anton Kuerti (pianist) purchased a cottage in the area, and invited some of his musician friends to play at one of three concerts he organized.

1980 was the official beginning of the Festival of the Sound, with Mr. Kuerti as the Director. Five years later, James Campbell (clarinet) joined as the Artistic Director, and still holds that position.
