The space
Beatty Suite (See also: Sweeney Room and Wheatley Room)
Our large historic Queen Anne style home sits on a half acre park-like lot backed by a secluded wooded area with quiet neighbors on either side. Mrs. T.'s BnB was the set for two full length movies! The home was built in 1880 but in 1906, when the trains came to Parry Sound, it was set on logs and pulled by horses down the hill to its present location. William Beatty, son of the founder of Parry Sound, William Beatty, was its first owner. A picture of our home hangs in the Parry Sound Museum. There have only been four families live in the house since 1880. Each of the three guest rooms is named after one of the families. There are three bedrooms for rent with occupancy of 2 per room. The rooms are on the second floor, beautifully appointed and clean. Beatty Suite has an en-suite bathroom and the two other rooms share one updated three piece bathroom on the second floor. There is also a three piece washroom with shower on the first floor for guest use. The Beatty Suite (queen bed) also has a fireplace and two couches, one in the small sitting area and a new pull out sofa bed in the adjoining sun room. The Sweeney Room (queen bed, second largest room) is beside the washroom and opens onto a beautiful new deck overlooking the gardens. The Wheatley Suite (smallest room, double bed)also opens onto the deck as above. The attic (when whole house is rented) has a playroom with two smaller beds, and a double bed in a small separate room. These accommodations are all lovingly restored and decorated. Bedding is high quality with ironed sheets. There are serviceable closets and dressers, and a tv, air-conditioning and internet in each room. Each floor meets fire safety requirements with smoke and carbon monoxide detector. The woodwork of the staircase, second floor hall and doors are original to the house. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the more formal parlour or living room (antique rosewood couch and chairs, four stained glass windows) and another in the dining room which keep the rooms cozy in cooler weather. Both fires will be set on cool mornings at breakfast times. The walnut dining room table can seat twelve. The chandelier adds sparkle to the silver tea set. An gas fireplace warms up the family room where we can be found in the evenings. The kitchen is updated and has a large microwave, fridge and new stove. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Please let us know of any allergies or dietary concerns. Mrs. T. will have an assortment of fresh fruit, breads and muffins, eggs, bacon and or sausages, cereals, yogurts and toast /jam/honey/peanut butter. On alternate days, she serves up pancakes and the extras. Coffees, teas and a variety of juices will also be on offer. Breakfast is usually set for 8:30 but we can be flexible within reason. In her capacity as an associate mediator, Mrs. T. has been hired to work on Wednesdays at the courthouse for 10:00 in the FLIC office as the IRC.
Grounds include front yard facing the street, side yard with yard swing, first back yard leading to another back yard. On the grounds you will find perennial beds, vegetable beds, fire pit, water feature, large Victorian bird bath, screened gazebo with comfortable seating, café tables, octagonal picnic table, two lawn swings (one for snoozing!), and Muskoka chairs for gatherings. Birds, squirrels and chipmunks enjoy the seeds left in the two bird feeders. Sunsets over the Sound are spectacular and can be viewed from the wicker chairs or dining area on the front wrap-around porch. The grounds are lit with solar lights and are very pretty at night.
Our home is located within walking distance of major attractions in Parry Sound (the harbour, two beaches, fitness trail, Stockey Center for the Performing Arts, tour boats). Barnaby, our little dog (Papillon) is friendly, well-behaved and quiet and does not interact with guests unless invited.
In consideration of other guests, no children under twelve unless you are renting the whole house. Rooms in attic then also available. Children twelve and older are welcome at all other times.

Guest access
We have private sleeping accommodations in the basement and the two doors to access this area will be worded as such. Guests are warmly welcome to make use of all areas of the house except for this private area.

Other things to note

Our bedrooms are on the second floor. We are sorry, but we are not wheelchair accessible.

About Us! Sandra (Smith) Thomson was born and raised in Listowel, Ontario. Her father drove truck for Listowel Transport Lines for forty years. When the company moved to Elmira, Ontario, Sandra’s family moved there. Sandra was going into grade eleven at that time. By the end of grade eleven, Sandra and Andrew were high school sweethearts. They were married after university as they started their careers. Sandra was a teacher for 25 years, most of her career was teaching Kindergarten. They moved to Parry Sound with three small children so Andrew could continue his law practice here. Sandra is retired and both Andrew and Sandra are now trained family mediators. Four of their five children are married and Andrew and Sandra have nine grandchildren. Sandra was affectionately known as “Mrs. T.” by her students. Every morning in Kindergarten class, Mrs. T. and her little students sang a song called, “We Know How To Share A Lot”. It is this attitude of kindness and sharing that will be an integral part of her bed and breakfast business. We have a small dog (Papillon) named Barnaby. He is five years old, friendly and well trained. He is a wonderful watch dog and will bark a greeting as you arrive. You will probably not see or hear him after that and guest rooms, including the dining room are "off limits" for him.

I am a 69 year old retired K teacher. After retirement at 63, I trained over a two year period to become a mediator. I now work one day a week (Wednesdays-after guests depart)) at the Family Law Information Center -Legal Aid -as information coordinator. My husband Andrew and I have been married 44 years and have five wonderful children and nine grandchildren. We love our times together with family and I like reading, gardening and boating in our little bow-rider. We were looking to downsize from our dear old home when friends suggested doing a B. and B. We have three well-appointed, clean and comfortable rooms. Sheets are ironed. Classic Canadian cooked breakfasts are home cooked -with vegetarian, vegan and dairy free options-and the food plentiful. A sign at our front door reads: The best thing about our home is who we share it with. And, as we sang each morning in our morning circle in K, "We Know How To Share A Lot", we will do our best to make you feel welcome and at home here at Mrs. T.'s B. and B.
