Port Rowan's Palm Trees and Polar Bears is redefining the traditional bed and breakfast experience.
One of those places isPalm Trees and Polar Bears Bed and Breakfast in Port Rowan, Ontario. Port Rowan is a small community on the shores of Lake Erie in southern Ontario. The region is famous for its provincial parks, beautiful beaches, and bird watching. I got to know the area first by camping at nearby Long Point Provincial Park, and then again on a repeat visit for kayaking. Year round camping isn't a possibility here - and for a lot of people I know, it's definitely not a summer option either! And for those who enjoy some creature-comforts when they explore nature, a B&B is a decidedly civilized option and Palm Trees and Polar Bears is definitely one of the best I've ever enjoyed.
There's more competition for value priced accommodations than ever before, and also more demands on proprietors as well traveled guests demand televisions, WiFi, and more. I think Palm Trees and Polar Bears has done an admirable job in charting these new waters while still staying true to their roots.
Those who like a bit more personal interaction will love chatting with Sharron over breakfast. And WHAT a breakfast! I've long abandoned any notion of moderation or ladylike food consumption when I'm in Norfolk County, but these breakfasts were just fantastic. Imagine your classic full hot breakfast spread, but where everything had a little bit of a twist, like maple breakfast sausages or red pepper jelly spread over cream cheese and bagels. There were tons of breakfast staples, like fresh fruit and different kinds of toast, and plenty of coffee and juice.
We'd love to hear from you! Is staying in B&Bs a part of your travel plans?
