Wonderful relaxing time with our hosts Bob and Justyna. Food was healthy and delicious! pool and hot tub just the right temperature.. beds very comfortable. came home happy and relaxed, need I say more? We have found our happy place!

- Karen, from Kingston, Canada 30 May 2019

Justyna always takes care of us amazingly. We joined in with the aquafit class she leads at the B&B and she shared recipes we got to sample that she will be using at her Fasting retreats. What a well researched and motivating woman! Not your typical B&B.

- Claire, from Ontario 10 December 2018

Love TLC!

- Todd, from Orleans 10 December 2018

Our 4th time back and there is nowhere else my family would rather stay coming to Ottawa.

- Bill, from Scarborough 10 December 2018

- Sandy and John, from All across Canada (wedding reunion) 10 January 2017

The hospitality at this B & B was extraordinary, as was the facility. Justyna Lawrence went more than the extra mile by picking me up from the Rideau Trail that I was walking from Kingston, and took me back the next day. The sauna and pool were heaven after long days of walking. The food was delicious. The best was the heart and kindness, encouraging me on my walk and supporting me to reach my goal. Thank you Justyna!!

- Sue Smee, from Ottawa 10 October 2015

- Darrell, Donna, Darlene and Oscar Dechene, from Deep River Ontario. 10 August 2015

If you are looking for a bed and breakfast that is different from all the rest you have found it here. TLC Bed and Breakfast can be rated 4 stars as it has everything under the roof. It has a huge swimming pool sauna and whirlpool and exceptional hosts who take care of everything. Justyna and Bob go out of their way to make your stay as confortable as possible. Justyna makes exceptional breakfast and will make dinner for you on request for a small additional fee. My wife and I went for a 4 day rest and we came back completely relaxed and stress free. The town is only a 5 minute drive away so you will not get lost. There is a very good chinese buffet in the town well worth the visit and price. They have 3 daughters 2 cats and a dog and everyone including the pets make you feel at home. They have over 200 DVD and VHS movies for all ages and lots of video games to keep you entertained and occupied. You have a full kitchen with stove microwave coffee machine and kettle with plates and all utensils in case you want to cook. The claw tub in the suite is to die for. It can easily hold 2 people. Rain or shine it does not matter because the swimming pool sauna and whirlpool are all enclosed. The bed and breakfast is great for all year round use. We will definately return next year and we want to again thank Justyna Bob and their family for making our stay an unforgetable one.

A guest recently shared her experience:

"It is so hard to have a holiday when you have a child with severe food alergies. We chose TLC because we would have our own kitchen. However Justyna patiently went through the long list of foods our daughter cannot eat and came up with a menu that was not only safe but delicious. I can't tell you what a blessing that was for us."

Over the past 9 years, several guests have come with special food needs. It is a challenge I enjoy and giving my guests peace of mind is very satisfying. I have experience now feeding guests on elimination diets as well as restricted food plans.

We were fortunate to stay over the Canada Day weekend and had a wonderful time. We originally were not looking for a B'n'B for our family of three kids (7,9,11) because so many prefer couples only but TLC was an awesome family getaway. The pool and hot tub was fantastic. It was also greatly appreciated having two washrooms, kitchen area, gaming/recreation area and two bedrooms. Justyna and family were welcoming and accomodating hosts and we had a really relaxing stay. We enjoyed the Ottawa sites and would also recommend the Richmond Bakery. We definitely hope to return soon!

- Tan Family, from Mississauga 5 July 2012

There are not enough positive words in the dictionary to describe how wonderful it is to stay with Justyna and Bob. My family has stayed on more than one occassion. My children complain bitterly when TLC is already booked and we stay *anywhere* else.

- Michaela koch, from Toronto, Canada 24 March 2012

Excellent place and hospitality have stayed there three times and would for sure go back again.

- Lesley Sinclair, from Ottawa. 10 November 2011

Thank you Justyna, Bob and Jennifer for the hospitality you offered us during our stay at your B&B (April 1-4, 2011). You went way beyond my expectation in accommodating my family during our stay, and for that I am truly grateful to you all.

Thank you Jennifer for sharing your portfolio with me, I enjoyed our chat we had about your drawings, keep up the good work.

The breakfast each morning was just as good if not better then the morning before. Always a real treat to wake up to the smell of bacon and fresh brewed coffee. A+ for each one!

A BIG thank you for opening up your house to receive all my family members to unwind and bar-b-q and use the pool area. We all needed that after the extremely stressful days we had previously spent, and the weather couldn't of been nicer.

Hope we have a chance to enjoy your B&B again!

- Rolande Murdock, from Fredericton, NB 8 April 2011

Our first night of a 3 night stay spent enjoying the hot tub with our wonderful hosts. This morning's breakfast was great. We soaked in the hot tub and had a swim before heading to Ottawa to shop and let Donna get pampered at a spa. Isn't our first stay and won't be our last! There is nothing I can say but you have to try this experience to know how wonderful it is.

The thing we noticed most is how this week went by way too fast!!! This was our second March Break getaway at TLC and once more we were treated like family. We spent the week worry free, relaxed and completely entertained while in the thoughtful care of the Lawrences. Justyna's creative breakfasts were always delicious; taking into consideration our family's different personal tastes and some special requests (i.e. chocolate chip pancakes). Nathan was so disappointed to leave; he will miss "the chalet" and Crystal very much until we return. Thank you sincerely from the Deer-Hoogendijk/Hill-Seymour Family. We will see you again next year I'm sure...& maybe even sooner!

- Kary-Ann & Chris Hoogendijk, from Montreal, Canada 6 March 2011

Nous cherchions un endroit privé et spacieux pour passer un temps de ressourcement en couple (six nuits) pour notre anniversaire. Quoique TLC est assez spacieux pour recevoir un couple avec enfants, nous nous sentions tout aussi intimes à seulement deux. Les hôtes sont très sympas, et on a passé beaucoup de temps à jaser et à se partager nos histoires. Justyna nous a offert des sessions d'aquaforme dans leur superbe piscine intérieure à tous les matins ainsi que des délicieux repas qui accommodaient nos préférences santé. TLC est bien situé pour participer aux festivals et visiter les galeries, musées et plus encore à Ottawa. C'est un endroit très unique où nous voulons séjourner encore et encore!

- Denise & Donald, from Orleans, Ontario 26 February 2011

My family and I stayed with the Lawrences for a week of splendid hospitality, friendship, and fun!! The food was so delicious and the company more than what was expected. We swam until to our hearts content and found ourselves just wanted to hang out with Justyna sometimes to chat, thanks for all the great conversations. Justyna is a fabulous hostess and talented cook; we are very much looking forward to our next visit.

- Kary-Ann & Chris Hoogendijk, from Chateauguay, Quebec 21 June 2010

An other wonderful stay with the nicest family we know for our 32 anniversary. We spent 3 nights and days at the most wonderful vacation spot you could imagine swimming and hot tubing indoors, and even a sauna. The hostility of these wonderful people is second to none. The atmosphere of openness and friendship is like no where else, and Justyna is always so helpful in showing us exercise tips to try in the pool which are always fun. We also got to use there massage table with a free lesson in how to massage properly. This was our second stay and even better than our first because we were even more at home and because we got to meet Bob the man of the house whom is every bit a wonderful host as lovely Justyna . We are looking forward to I hope many visits to come in the future. Thanks for such a wonderful visit with you guys until next time.

- Darrell & Donna D, from Ontario, Canada 7 April 2010

Simply heaven. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

- Michelle, from Toronto 26 January 2010

TLC is one of the best kept secrets in Ottawa! I won't go swimming in public pools any more but at TLC I go in with my kids because I don't feel self concious at all, and they could stay in the water all day while I read. We ate breakfast, swam, played dance dance revolution, swam, sang kareoke, swam and watched movies and because we ordered dinner in, we didn't bother to get dressed until the next day. What a relaxing vacation!

- Denyse and kids, from Barrhaven Ontario 28 January 2008

Justyna and Bob and their girls are great hosts. Even though they advertise for families, their place is really romantic and you can ask for privacy if you want romance or to de-stress. We came as a couple but I can see coming here with friends and playing cards and enjoying the hot tub and dancing and watching a movie. When we arrived we had a sauna and massage. Then we had a candle lit dinner and danced by the pool then enjoyed the tub and fireplace in our room.

- Sue and Peter Salinger, from Buffalo, New York 28 January 2008

We were invited to post a review after our experience at the Lawrences' bed and breakfast. Some years ago, my husband and I had to come to Ottawa while my sister was dying of cancer. We were so fortunate to come across TLC bed and breakfast. The name says it all. We had long days by my sister's bedside and but it was easy to find things to talk about because although we didn't use the pool, we did find the Lawrence family easy to talk with and every morning they told us stories of their travels or about some of the interesting nick nacks they have collected in their home. We had a different breakfast every morning and there was always tea and a snack in the evenings. Our room was comfortable and very relaxing and it felt like coming "home" each night.

- Stephanie and William, from Lethbridge Alberta 28 January 2008

So much to say about this awesome place! We stayed for three weeks while building our house in Stittsville. All the facilities of home but like being on holiday the whole time. They even looked after our pets when we went to my parents for the weekend. Our kids have planned birthday sleepovers with their friends later this year. The pictures don't do it justice!

- Tim and Liz and kids, 28 January 2008

TLC is first class! We spent one evening while travelling through Ottawa with a group of our Timber Wolves. The boys so much enjoyed the facilities (the pool, hot tub and sauna), appreciated the warm welcome, the TLC pets, the atmosphere and more. They are consistently asking when are we going back to TLC? Returning we are as we visit Ottawa for an exciting weekend this June. Justyna and Bob are excellent hosts, we highly recommend TLC as an awesome place to stay!

- Paul Ritchi, from Toronto 27 January 2008

TLC is more than an overnight stop, it is a little resort. You get a huge pool all to yourself to swim or do the spa thing with the sauna and hot tub. They can arrange a massage by the pool or for babysitting so you can have adult time while the kids are having a blast. The house is so interesting and the Lawrence family so welcoming and friendly. We come a couple of times every year sometimes with the kids and sometimes without.
