the manse

New owners of the Manse B and B are Glenn and Diane Kitchen. Glenn is a renowned chef in Muskoka. We moved from Bracebridge where we lived for almost 20 years. Our children are grown now so we thought we would spread our own wings and buy a B and B. The house still has old world charm, I have added watercolour paintings done by my great Grandfather, he was from Edinburg Scotland. Old teacups decorate the dining room. The furniture in the dining room is dating back to the early 1900's. We do have modern conviences such as central air-conditioning and a hot tub on the back porch! Well travelled dogs are allowed.

We are centrally located on 12 Bailey Street, a residential street in the beautiful resort town of Port Carling, in the heart of the Muskokas. The Manse is just a few minutes walk from a park with a beach, swimming area, bathrooms and a public boat launch ramp on Lake Muskoka's Indian River, and a five minute walk to downtown shops. Across the street is the town community centre, home to the annual Muskoka Festival of Music, which spans three mid-summer weeks, and we are right around the corner from the new Norma and Miller Alloway Muskoka Lakes Library.

The Manse has a serene front porch with swing and lounge chairs. Inside is a comfortable living room and dining room, and on the second and third floors are three suites, each with its own en suite bathroom and sitting area. Each suite is named in honour of a United Church minister who lived here with his or her family.
