We love to host guests in our home, we look forward to meeting you so we can share it :) Allan my husband likes to bake muffins and cook breakfast if asked to do it!
We usually put a frig in the room with water,juice and pop plus fruit and yogurt!It is for snacks but we will do a hot breakfast too.
You'll be staying in a lovely finished suite on our lower level that includes a comfy bedroom, private 4-piece bathroom, living room area with fireplace & tv, plus a walkout to the backyard. If you need two rooms for your stay, just ask --- there's a second guestroom available in the same suite for those travelling together. Of course you are welcome to enjoy the rest of our home as well, we look forward to chatting over tea or coffee during your stay.
Our kitchen is not available to guests for personal cooking !
We provide wireless internet and you are welcome to park in the driveway or on the road in front during your stay.
You'll be just 10 minutes from a great beach and boardwalk in Cobourg, shopping and restaurants nearby downtown or at the mall too!
There are many restaurants in the town.We recommend according to type of food you like.Some of names are Boston Pizza,East Side Mario's,Swiss Chalet,Oasis,or Bulai Taste of Thai in Port Hope.
In summer the Cobourg beach is great attraction and the marina is lovely to see in daylight or night! Lots of tourists come in July 1 weekend for Cobourg's waterfront festival.
We do have a cute Havanese dog in the house so we don't accept other pets.We also are a non smoking household.
The location is a short driving distance from cities like Toronto, Peterborough, Kingston, for a day trip and a comfortable stop when travelling through to Montreal, Ottawa or Niagara Falls as well.
There is a bus going past our door for town transportation.
We are in a new subdivision and our home is in a building construction site behind us.This is not noisy on weekends .
We have a gazebo and beautiful gardens to sit and relax in mornings or evenings!

Fran an Allan were great hosts and went beyond any expectations to make us feel like home. Our private area was fantastic and one of them is a great cook. Okay it was Al and he did a wonderful job helping us leave with no room for more. They are very special hosts and will be on our list for the next trip. We enjoyed their helping in any way possible to make our stay comfortable. Menus from several restaurants helped us
find a good location for dinner. Thanks Fran and Allan.
Accueil très soigné de frances et allan...les chambres très accueillantes et remplies d'attention pour que nous soyons à l'aise .
Le petit déjeuner du matin pris avec eux est un régal et nous a permis de mieux faire connaissance .
À recommander à tous !

Fran and Allan were very warm and accommodating hosts – a savvy duo with an awesome space equipped with everything you might need – and then some! This was more than perfect – even for my short stay – just what a weary traveler hopes to find, yet seldom does. All the amenities, comfort and privacy that would outclass any competition within the area and far beyond. My schedule sadly didn’t allow for breakfast, but I hear it’s quite the treat. We enjoyed a great conversation one morning in their lovely backyard gazebo (over a delicious coffee!). I would recommend them hands down. Thanks so much for making me feel spoiled!!
Parfait, exceptionnel, beaucoup d attentions nous attendaient dans cette magnifique demeure, nous avons trouvé très agréable le déjeuner pris avec fran et allan, malgré la barrière de la langue, l échange a été interessant. Sans hésiter, nous les recommandons.
Tout était exceptionnel !!! ; l'accueil, la sympathie de Fran et Allan, leur maison est magnifique, et l'environnement superbe ! Nous avons partagé deux petits déjeuners excellents préparés par Fran et Allan.
Ils nous ont donné beaucoup d'informations et nous avons beaucoup échangé avec eux. On avait l'impression de les connaître depuis longtemps ! Un après-midi en rentrant de la plage Allan a dit : " tiens les enfants arrivent"
S'il y a un endroit à retenir à Cobourg c'est chez Fran et Allan ! Encore merci pour tout ! et à bientôt en France !
I would like to describe how amazingly we were hosted by Fran and Allen in their beautiful house in Cobourg, but I'm afraid that words aren't enough! Me and my husband stayed there just for one night, and that's our only regret! Since the very first moment we were treated like family members: we had not just a room but an entire part of the house all for us, with a beautiful bathroom, a large and cozy living room and our room: big, beautiful, relaxing, with a basket full of fruit and treats and a fridge with muffins and juices and water! Fran and Allen were so nice with us, full or cares and good advices. When we left for dinner Fran was making laundry for us and when we got back she had even folded our stuff! Then, after a sound sleep, we woke up with the nice smell of an amazing breakfast cooked by Allen, which we enjoyed with them, along with a pleasant chat. That's the best I can do, but as I said, words can't quite match the truth! Five stars aren't enough: if you're considering lake Ontario, then Cobourg is where you want to stay!
We had a lovely time. Fran and Allan are very friendly and welcoming. The suite is spacious and spotless. All the goodies left for us were lovely. Great breakfast and great conversation!
We had an amazing stay with Allan and Fran! We cycled from Toronto in the rain and then the heat wave, tired and dirty, we surely enjoyed the shower, fluffy towels and the snacks they left us in the room. Cobourg is a beautiful town, we walked to downtown for dinner to Oasis a restaurant they recommended and it was just perfect. We best enjoyed the breakfast that Allan cooked up for us before our long ride to Kingston. The conversations we had may have been the greatest part overall, they love meeting new people and hearing about everyone's adventures! We hope to stay here again in the future!
We had a wonderful time staying here! Absolutely every detail was looked after. They wanted to know if there was anything they could do to better our stay and we couldn't think of a thing. The rooms were clean and tidy, the beds were comfy, and it was very quiet. We didn't use all of the options available to us. The hosts are very friendly, helpful, and we had some really nice chats.
The outdoor gazebo was a very new addition to their house and we really enjoyed spending some time reading out there as well.
If you are looking for a great place to stay, this is the one!
where do I start? Our first bnb experience. They have set the bar way too high. So clean, every little touch you can imagine and they are wonderful people. Don't dare stay at hotel in cobourg, stay here.
