We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, and my wife and I agree that this was far and away the nicest. The travel themes of the rooms with the photos and artwork by Deanna are beautiful and unique. The gardens and the hot tub and the fire pit made relaxation easy. It is far enough from the town centre to be quiet and laid back, but yet close enough for a nice 20 minute stroll through to the town centre through the streets of NOTL. Delivery of breakfast in picnic baskets was fun and unique, but most importantly the gourmet breakfast menu was creative and very tasty (we even bought her cookbook). We are looking forward to returning!

Explorer House is a lovely place to stay. Very clean and full of interesting travel pieces, the owner’s photography and high quality furniture. It’s only three rooms so it’s very quiet. The quiet combined with a very comfortable king size bed provided a nice restful place at night. Fabulous home cooked hot breakfast delivered to our room made waking up a treat as well! We highly recommend this B&B and will return!

What a beautiful home, with only 3 guest rooms. Tranquil, relaxing gardens with a hot tub. Breakfast.... both delivery of picnic baskets & in dining experience were delicious and filling. Great hosts! Location is a bit of a walking distance to the Main Street, but very doable. Lovely Italian restaurant only a tiny walk away. Would definitely go back.
