If you seek a place with ambience, seclusion, friendly hosts and wonderful breakfasts, then this is the place! Jo-Ann and Gerry you are awesome.

- Bev & Richard Lynch, from Hanover 30 July 2019

Leszek and I had such a lovely weekend! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and your delightful company. :) See you next year. All the best...

- Lynne, from Toronto 22 July 2019

Nice Hosts.vert good breakfast and nice feel. Loved the rural location.All was pretty much perfect. Hosts allowed guests to feel at home and a very easy going atmosphere. (from Booking.com).

- James, from United Staters 1 June 2019

Tranquil moments lives up to its name- unlike most Canadian rural properties which sit in the middle of a big square of grass, this B&B sits in its own natural forest glade where Jo-ann's delightful garden melds into the Carolinian forest. Humming birds, Indigo Buntings, Baltimore Orioles and American Goldfinches visit the feeders while you are having your breakfast. And I haven't even mentioned the warmest of welcomes from the host, and the expansive master bedroom and bathroom . Perfect!

- Adrian, from Great Britain 1 June 2019

Everything was perfect (from Booking.com)

- Jeff McLauglin, from Canada 1 June 2019

Calm stay in the beautiful house in the middle of the forest. Delicious home made breakfast, with trees surrounding the garden. You wake up to the birds singing.

- Czajek, from Canada 1 June 2019

Tranquil moments indeed! We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at Jerry and Jo Ann's beautiful home and so enjoyed our time with them. Such gracious hosts, wonderful breakfasts and the room was outstanding! We were treated like family and discovered we had mutual interests which made for great conversation. We were out of season to enjoy Jo Ann's beautiful gardens but she shared a great magazine article that had been done on her garden, which served to entice us back again in season. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful retreat and pleasant and tranquil time away in the wonderful countryside of southwestern Ontario.

- Mike and Joey, from Port McNicoll, On 11 December 2018

This was our first B&B experience and Gerry and Jo-Ann have set the bar VERY high. What a fantastic weekend we had. It was so calm and relaxing, our hosts were genuinely friendly and a pleasure to interact with and the breakfasts were all excellent. Thank you both. We look forward to visiting you again.

- Barb & Dave Auld, from Canada 9 October 2018

If you want a quiet, get-away-from-it-all break, Tranquil Moments will probably serve very well. Located about a 20 minute drive from Simcoe, Port Rowan and Turkey Point, it is on a small isolated road surrounded by woods and farmland, where the loudest thing is the birds. Gerry and Jo-Ann are very friendly and helpful, and full of stories. The house is comfortable, clean and full of character. There are 3 rooms, one with an en suite bathroom and two that share a private bathroom. There is a nice screened-in porch where you can watch the hummingbirds, cardinals and wrens in comfort. Breakfast is good, and they can accommodate special diets (like us vegetarians).

- Luke, from Toronto, ON 11 July 2018

The ultimate nature and nurture BNB Gerry & Jo-ann are stars in hosting a B&B. I felt like a member of the family right from the start. They are both super accommodating and helpful and just great people. Jo-ann prepared a different delicious breakfast for me each of the three mornings I was there.I loved the location which was only a few minutes out of Simcoe in the middle of the woods, which made it quiet and dark for sleeping. I enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels in the back yard while eating breakfast. The bedroom and bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was beautifully decorated as was the rest of the house.

- David, from Geneva, Switzerland 17 April 2018

I had the King room.Bed was very comfy and I loved the pillow.Breakfast was delicious and Gerry & Jo-ann were a very sweet and interesting couple. I will most definitely return

- David, 17 April 2018

The hosts were lovely to talk to and made my girlfriend and I feel very comfortable. The house and yard were also beautiful and I loved feeling surrounded by nature while enjoying the comforts of their very nice house. No complaints. It was everything we could have hoped for.

- Matt Kirsch, from USA 25 August 2017

Jo-ann and Gerry treated us just like family. Wonderful stay, the breakfast was beyond what we were expecting and the room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Very quiet peaceful setting, it was so enjoyable and we will definitely be going back.

- Linda, 14 August 2017

Gerry & Jo-ann were the perfect hosts. They were very welcoming and invited us to take afternoon tea with them in their porch. They have abundant wildlife in their garden, which we could have sat and watch all day. the room we were given was excellent and had everything we needed. Breakfast was out of this world. Jo-ann's fresh toast is the best. The little personal touches such as scented towels made this one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed at.

- Simon, 14 August 2017

A lovely place to stay, I rate it a 10

- Carole, from US 14 August 2017

Jo-ann and Gerry were wonderful hosts! Their house and garden are beautiful. I especially enjoyed relaxing with a cup of tea in the screened in porch, while reading my book and watching the Humming Birds outside. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast overlooking the garden.

- Melanie, 14 August 2017

Thankyou for your hospitality this weekend. You have a very nice home, it was great that you shared it with us. Thanks for your role in making our 2017 mystery tour perfect.

Dear Jo-Ann & Gerry Thank you so much for your kind hospitality . The breakfasts were delicious, and your home was lovely and inviting. I loved your garden and the conversations. May God bless you both in all you do. Most sincerely

- Judy Johnson, from Hamburg, New York 6 July 2016

Dear Gerry & Jo-ann Thank you so much for a wonderful few days at your lovely home. You both have been so hospitable and friendly. We will be sure to come back.

- Julie & Paul, from Toronto 6 July 2016

I have been to numerous B&Bs but this one outclassed them all. Our group occupied all three bedrooms and found them to be beautifully outfitted and exceptionally comfortable. Whether we were sitting on the screened in back porch or the back deck, we had great views of the woods and gardens. In fact every room had a great view of the woods and gardens! Breakfast served over the two days we stayed included fresh fruit of all kinds, yogurt, homemade muffins and sticky buns, pancakes and sausage, and quiche all deliciously prepared and served at the time we requested. Gerry and Jo-ann were friendly and charming hosts and we had many good laughs during our stay. I strongly recommend this B&B as we certainly enjoyed it.

- Sandi, from Buffalo, NY 27 June 2016

- Dennis and JeanneHartman, from Ohio , USA 20 June 2016

Gerry and Jo-ann were most welcoming with a lovely home and great atmosphere and comfortable room. The breakfast was amazing! We will definitely return when we next visit the area.

- David & Jennifer L, from Wasaga Beach 27 August 2015

This was my second visit here, stayed 3 days and 2 nights. We went to Long Point Beach and Turkey Point.

I thought the first time was great but the second seemed even better. Their home is so beautiful and clean and I just love the breakfasts.

It felt like my home away from home. Their hospitality was outstanding!

I wish I could have stayed longer but will be going back again.

- Lesle E., from Mississauga, Ontario Canada 10 August 2015

Tranquil Moments is a stunning B&B, surrounded by splendid gardens and set in a magical forest. Its hosts, Jo-ann and Gerry, are the very best of people. Gerry is warm and friendly, and Joanne's cooking is delicious. Her blueberry grunt: to die for; and her waffles melt in your mouth. They shared their gorgeous home with us as if with real family. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and relaxed. Lovely company, marvellous food, beautiful surroundings, luxurious accommodations and much happy conversation: a weekend away does not get any better. Now, if only we could convince Gerry and Jo-ann to adopt us….

- Lynne and Leszek, from Toronto 20 July 2015

I initially chose Tranquil Moments because Jo-Ann actually took the time to call me in response to my on-line request. It was a great choice, as we were treated wonderfully. Food, room and conversation were all above expectations. I would highly recommend this lovely B&B to anyone who appreciates a fabulous garden, great food and gracious hosts.

- Lori de Groot, from Rockwood On. 17 July 2015

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Tranquil Moments. Our hosts were wonderful, breakfast was really good and fresh. The house was spotless, and the surroundings so quiet. Living downtown in a city we appreciated the silence and darkness at night. Would highly recommend.

- Emily Gowing, from Hamilton, ON 12 July 2015

Just stayed 2 nights at Tranquil Moments B&B outside of Simco and highly recommend it.

My wife and I wanted to go biking on the rail trails starting in Simco and it was a great location. Only 15 minutes from town but out in the countryside in a quiet, beautiful location surrounded by forest and farmland. The whole yard was a pleasure to look at, full of a wide variety of perennials.

The Master bedroom and bathroom were huge and nicely decorated. On the main floor there was a big sitting room looking out on the back yard with screened walls to keep the bugs out. Very nice to sit out at night.

Gerry and Jo-ann were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful.

The breakfast meals were large and very tasty which kept us going on our bike rides.

I would highly recommend staying at their B&B.

- Mark Bucholtz, from Waterloo 4 July 2015

Gerry & Jo-ann Thankyou so much for being such great hosts. Breakfast was awesome, your place is beautiful, and you are both some of the friendliest people we have met. We had a wonderful time as guests in your home.

- Tiffany & Stephen Dubniczky, from Welland 21 June 2015

Had a wonderful 2 nights at Tranquil Moments B&B while in the area for a friend's wedding. Joanne and Gerry are warm, welcoming and friendly, making their home feel very much like a 'home away from home' for me. Their home is comfortable and spacious, and the gardens are absolutely gorgeous! I liked the little touches like lavender sachets in the towel basket - made the bath towels smell heavenly! Breakfasts were delicious and included lots of fresh fruit & berries which was really nice. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're in the area!

- Anne Longley, from Vancouver, Canada 1 September 2014

Two days at this ‘ Little Haven’ felt like a two week vacation. This charming and attractively decorated home was relaxing, comfortable and peaceful. Jo-ann & Gerry were the perfect hosts. They were very welcoming & extremely organized. Every detail was given a personal touch. Jo-ann’s gourmet breakfasts are beyond expectations. We feel so blessed to have had the opportunity of spending time at the ‘Tranquil Moments B&B’. Merci Beaucoup!

- J.P. & Germaine Drouillard, from Belle River, Ontario 12 May 2014

Wow!! Great hospitality, beautiful surroundings, impeccably clean, absolutely delicious breakfasts!! What more can I say except that I would love to come back in the summertime and just relax and enjoy the deck and gardens and immerse myself in bubbles in that enormous tub!! Thank you so much for your extended hospitality on the Friday night. God bless!

- Marilyn, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada 26 November 2013

Once again, this year, we had the pleasure of staying at Tranquil Moments B&B. This is our third year participating in the Tour de Norfolk bicycle ride in this beautiful area. How nice to be able to enjoy staying at Tranquil Moments after a hard day of riding and being totally pampered by Jo-ann and Gerry in their beautiful home. Thanks so much for a fabulous weekend.

- Bernarda Elizondo, from Toronto, Canada 28 August 2011

We enjoyed a lovely stay at your beautiful home. The warm welcome and hospitality were much appreciated. In keeping with the tranquility theme, we thoroughly relaxed in the charming king bedroom with the oversized ensuite bathroom, luxurious bathtowels and other niceties. The peaceful setting delivered a good night's sleep and in the morning, the savoury smells from the kitchen got us into gear. The wide assortment of breakfast items gave us a great start to our day. We look forward to a return visit to stroll around your beautiful woods/garden and to curl up with a good book in the pretty screened-in sunroom. Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed - thank you.

- Joan Enright, from Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada 21 June 2011
