No complaints here...a quiet, well kept home away from home, in a beautiful woodland setting. We loved the breakfast, eggs, bacon, toast, coffee...complete with delicious honey and maple syrup, both made by the bees and trees on site! We'll certainly return to Ridgmoor if the occasion arises.

Ridgemoor is situated in a lovely rural location and has spacious rooms, furnished to an excellent standard. The games room was also of a high quality and the swimming pool is superb. Above all, our host was extremely accommodating, very friendly, and a great chef!

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. It was a pleasure having your family stay here for the wedding. GLAD YOU AND YOUR BROTHER MADE USE OF THE POOL TABLE AND SHUFFLEBOARD. The pool and hot tub get closed after this weekend. Enjoy another year of school and thanks again for the glowing review. cheers, Bill More

The room was comfortable, quiet, clean and is right on the route for the new Greenbelt Bike trail. We had a great breakfast. Bill is a fine cook and sat down to chat with us during the meal. He is very knowledgable about the area. I'd recommend it.

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. You were the first cyclists riding the Greenbelt Trail to stay here. Glad your expectations were met for the most part. Breakfast conversation expanded my insight into long term care beds in Ontario. There must be a lot of pressure in that job. Cycle Safe. cheers, Bill More

The difference of staying at Ridgemoor is apparent from the approach to the house on the wooded drive. This is going to be an experience unlike most other stays at hotels, B&B's, and hostels--this is as if one were returning home. The proprietor, Bill, is pleased to welcome the prodigal and (re)introduce the home and its amenities (such as a... More

Thanks for taking the time to post this review.I'm glad you appreciated the homey feel to Ridgemoor because that is exactly what we strive for. Afterall, we built the home after clearing the land in1982 and raised our family here. The maple syrup and honey coming off the property are unique to a B&B.

Thanks for the review. Hope you enjoyed your time in Ontario, It's a big place. You were exceptional guests and I must say stripping the beds and gathering up the towels was appreciated but unexpected. I guess you are safely back in Coventry and I'm glad you included Ridgemoor B&B in your visit to Canada, cheers, Bill More

Ridgemoor has been my "home away from home" for several years now when I return to my hometown of Ancaster. Bill is a wonderful host ... be sure to try the maple syrup made from his trees and the honey made from his bees! The setting of the house in the deep woods cannot be beat.

Ancaster is certainly undergoing a lot of growth and expansion; 4 square km north of Garner road and south of 403 alone!
