View of the Ganaraska Forest at Moonlight Pines B&B in Port Hope

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of visiting The Municipality of Port Hope with 2 full days packed with activities and delicious foods. In the evening, we stayed at Moonlight & Pines Bed and Breakfast. Quietly tucked away in Ganaraska, Moonlight & Pines is a 4 season bed & breakfast that is an approximate 20 minutes drive from the downtown Port Hope. We were graciously welcomed by our hosts Helen & Colin – who have been living there for about 15 years. We stayed in a private suite with our own set of doors that opened up to a breathtaking view of the Ganaraska Forest.

  • The bedroom features:
  • King sized bed
  • En-suite bathroom
  • Heated floors
  • Walk in closet with bathrobes
  • Bar fridge & microwave
  • Coffee maker and kettle with complimentary coffee, herbal teas, and hot chocolate

 Helen provided a hearty breakfast for each guest (that will leave you rolling out of there!), served based on our selections made the previous day.

First Course – included a freshly squeezed orange juice & Bircher Muesli. For our second course, we chose 1 of the 12 items available on Helen’s menu! I opted for the sweet potato hash & my boyfriend opted for Helen’s carrot & ginger soufflé – which is out of this world! We loved our breakfast items so much.

Helen & Colin were fantastic hosts and made our stay feel like home away from home! Helen’s breakfast was a feast – my photos honestly doesn’t do it justice. The home owners were both incredibly down to earth – sharing their stories and experiences about pretty much everything. I highly recommend Moonlight & Pines and am looking forward to our next stay in the near future.
