Why Us?

Our B&B Seaforth Ontario Story

Our B&B is located in beautiful Seaforth Ontario, in Southern Ontario

An Idea is Born

Nancy was born and raised in Montreal, and left for Calgary in 1977.

John was born and raised in the Toronto area, and left for Calgary in the mid 70's,

2015 - Left Calgary behind, hosted our last International Student at the end of April, and started out on our epic cross-country journey to Ontario June 2015

The oil market had tanked, there was a population boom that the infrastructure couldn't handle, and John became unemployed.  So, we loaded up the house, which sold in four hours of listing, and drove East to where our family and grandchildren live.

Got married finally, September 2015, after fifteen years of being together

Bought Pemberley House December 24th, 2015.  Merry Christmas!  Nancy's favorite holiday!

Moved in February 2016
Nancy fell off a ladder and fractured her leg while stripping wallpaper, and was in a wheelchair for six months!  Ouch!

Opened for business August 2016

Pemberley House Bed and Breakfast

Pemberley House Bed and Breakfast is aptly named—for the Pemberley estate of author Jane Austen’s famous novel Pride and Prejudice is described as a “large, handsome stone building” situated within charming countryside. Seaforth’s vintage, yet newly refurbished, B&B establishment was built in 1874 during the Victorian era. And its welcoming façade echoes a time of slower paced living, garden soirees, and social “at homes.”

Proprietors John and Nancy Welter are keen to replicate an atmosphere of leisure and re-creation. With considerable experience hosting international university students in the past, they definitely know how to extend a welcome and to provide creature comforts for their guests. Extensive renovations have restored the look and the feel of Pemberley House. New bedsteads, mattress sets, bed linens, fluffy towels and accoutrements will set the tone for those staying at Pemberley House—along with its beautiful and functional French Provincial furnishings throughout. The Welter’s keen eye for quality antiques is evident—this grand old home has received a face-lift and a makeover.

Providing five beautiful rooms, delicious food, efficient amenities, and a friendly atmosphere are the goals of the Welters. They are people who enjoy people. A positive guest experience is the raison d’etre for all they do, for all they offer those who come through the elegant entrance of their home—designed to be their guests’ home while there. Visitors have the option of touring local attractions or enjoying indoor activities as well as badminton, volley ball, bocce, or croquet on Pemberley’s expansive lawns. It’s all about a relaxed, countryside experience and the pleasures of a small but progressive community.
