Don’t be mislead by the use of the word ‘Inn’. In Canada, inn is used for any B&B accommodation offering more than a certain number of bedrooms. There is no bar and no alcohol…
This is a large new wooden building built above Lake Ainslie and reached by a narrow rough road winding through the trees. The building is unpainted and the wood has weathered giving it the impression of being much older. Parking is at the back of the house.
The front of the house facing the lake has a large veranda and the front door leads into a hallway with large dining room to the right and lounge area to the left. A varnished pale wood staircase leads to a small sitting area with lots of books and access to a balcony.
We were in the MacFarlane room which was the smallest and cheapest bedroom. It had a comfortable queen size bed and understated furnishings. Internet was available in the room and there was a desk for working. The bathroom was big and provided with a selection of good towels. Water was provided in the room as it was recommended not to drink the tap water.
There was a leaflet in the room which was at pains to explain that the house provided a smoke and scent free environment and asked guests to cooperate by not using scented products.
We arranged to eat in as there is no where else locally to eat. Tulloch Inn also provides meals for non residents. There is a good choice of starters, mains and deserts. It was an excellent meal, well cooked and freshly prepared using vegetables from the garden.
Breakfast menu and times are confirmed the night before. Breakfast was unexciting but OK.
