Be house guests for a weekend at Betty and Tony's Residence on the water in Orillia. 
We expect you will enjoy the lush lawns and professionally landscaped limestone terraces which lead to our private waterfront. There is a safe sheltered dock where you can fish or swim in summer or access the water and lake with our canoe or paddle boat. We have equipment for guests to play Bocce or corn hole toss in the garden.

In summer the dappled sunshine on the lawn and lawn furniture beside the water tempt you to share a bottle of wine and order in a meal to eat at the patio table. Menus for a variety of restaurants who deliver are available and there are several tables suitable for a quiet dinner and a sample of Tony's home made wine.

The breakfast is beautifully presented on Wedgwood Hathaway Rose China - there is an unequalled breakfast menu, which can be seen on "Our Menu" page. During Summer Season you often get to choose from many of the items. Out of full season we give you a more limited choice.

Betty and Tony's is on Couchiching Point, an exclusive area in the City of Orillia, and is just a five minute walk to the prime section of the Millennium Trails in Tudhope Park. 

In summer swim in the Park, or stroll beside the lake from "home" to the Leacock Museum and grounds. There are complimentary bikes and a senior's scooter for our guests to use. 

Most guests devour the CHOCOLATE CAKES which Betty serves. Our home offers many of the features of a resort, plus Betty and Tony’s special hospitality. 

Betty and Tony have run this B&B personally since 1993. 2014 is our 21st year in business.

Hundreds of satisfied guests say we have thought of everything. To see some of their comments go to Trip Advisor. You really ought to come and invite yourself to Betty and Tony's for the weekend.
