About Us


Welcome to The Walnut Grove


The Walnut Grove B&B is located about 5km's north of Harrow in the heart of Essex County. Each room has been thoughtfully and carefully renovated to provide a spa like setting for your visit. "Into The Woods" is our themed King size room with ensuite and sitting area. "The Dusty Sprocket" is the Queen size room also with ensuite and sitting area. The two rooms share a kitchenette with mini fridge, toaster oven, coffee maker and tea kettle. Both rooms are lavishly outfitted with new mattresses, top end bedding, linens and bathrobes. ​ Our property offers several areas to enjoy the tranquil country setting. Listen to the peaceful waterfall sounds by the koi pond while sitting in the pergola, or take a stroll through the acres of woodland on site. Bird watch for our Baltimore Orioles (when in season) or our many woodpeckers, or perhaps enjoy the heated inground swimming pool. The central location allows convenient access to great bird-watching areas like Point Pelee National Park, Holiday Beach Conservation Area, John R Park Conservation Area to name a few. Several Golf courses just a short drive away. Lots of Cycling opportunities await including the dedicated Chrysler Greenway trail less than 3km from the property. Essex county's wine and spirit industry offers 14 wineries, craft breweries and distilleries just a short drive away.

We have been enjoying the B&B way of travelling for more than 30 years in our own travels and have for many of those years thought of one day becoming hosts ourselves. The Walnut Grove B&B has been a dream many years in the making. With our two children grown and now on their own, we have the opportunity to start this new adventure. We share our space with our three loving dogs and a very affectionate cat. We have always loved the outdoors including hiking, cycling, and kayaking. Totally immersing in our new country setting, we're learning more and more about the local birds, wildlife and plants that call this area home. The area has so much to offer and we hope we can help our guests make their visit to the area everything it can be. We have always loved entertaining and look forward to sharing our passion for the area with or guests. If there is anything we can do to help make your visit more enjoyable, please let us know and we will do our best to fulfill your request.
