When you think of staying at a bed and breakfast do you picture stuffy parlours, dusty doilies, scratchy bedcovers and shared baths? At the Historic Inns of Kingston we challenge this old stereotype of the bed and breakfast experience as stale and old-fashioned; that’s why we make a point of showing each guest a fabulously unforgettable experience like no other. Kingston’s historic bed and breakfast inns combine magnificent architecture, comfortable public spaces, beautiful gardens, and a quiet atmosphere with charmingly warm, lavishly-appointed guest rooms complete with private baths and modern amenities. Best of all our bed and breakfast inns are centrally located within convenient distance of countless events, activities, restaurants, and ways to have a great time in Kingston.
Comfortable Accommodations make for an amazing stay
You can’t say much about travel accommodations without mentioning food, so our guests wake up each morning to a deliciously satisfying meal that is sure to get the day started off right. Delectable breakfasts are our forté and we pride ourselves on providing creative recipes with only the freshest ingredients. We’re lucky to live in a city with great farmers’ markets and high-quality, locally-grown food and produce. It’s a great joy for us to present our guests with yummy food served in the gorgeous dining rooms of stately homes – and the reactions we get from our guests tell us they agree.

Kingston is located on the shores of Lake Ontario at the mouth of the St. Lawrence. From our inns, you can spend time in and on the sparkling water, walking, hiking, or biking in stunning scenery, or sharing the vibrant, urban downtown scenes with friends, family, or new acquaintances. Now that September is here we eagerly anticipate the brilliance of fall colours and look forward to watching the bold tones bring out even more of the area’s natural beauty.
