Green Door B&B, Brockville, ON

While on my Great Lakes Adventures, I've 
brought you glimpses of some of the special inns and historic B&Bs where I've stayed.
In the town of Brockville, Ontario, I came across one of the most ambitious building transformations I have ever seen.

The Green Door B&B used to be a church, the Pentecostal Tabernacle, built in 1929. 
Lynne and Peter Meleg purchased the empty building in 2005 and undertook a bold renovation. They detail the transformation of the building on their website HERE.

There are four rooms with private baths at the B&B and two apartments in the building that used to be used for Sunday School.

Dining area for gourmet breakfasts

Breakfasts at the inn were amazing. 
Here are some of their specialties:

  • Eggs Benedict, Green Door style. Mouth-watering!
  • Lemon ricotta pancakes drizzled with raspberry-maple coulis. Heavenly!
  • Asian-inspired poached eggs. A vegetarian delight!
  • Citrus French toast with berries, mint and warmed maple syrup. Yummy!
  • Gathering area -- check out those windows!

    The renovation preserved much of the large, open spaces in the building and the windows....
    the windows!
    The space is bathed in natural light.

    Gorgeous detail in the floor

    This is the perfect place to stay while exploring historic Brockville and the Thousand Island region of the St. Lawrence River.

    I had the "boathouse room", and, yes, this was my private window

    Promotional consideration given.
