Bed and Breakfast Homes and Mansions

Meticulously restored to bring out their original charm, many Montreal B&Bs are housed in century-old Victorian homes and feature aspects of the time period they represent, including antique furniture.
While their architectural styles - from 1930 neo-classical houses to old stonewall houses - vary quite a bit depending but every one of them offers modern conveniences such as air conditioning, hot and cold showers and Internet access.
Researching Montreal B&Bs
Before booking your stay at a Montreal bed and breakfast inn, getting acquainted with your hosts is as important as checking prices and locations. Unlike in a hotel where you won’t often see the front desk clerk, at a bed and breakfast inn you'll probably see the hosts more often than you expect.
There are a number of travel websites where you can read B&B reviews that will provide vital information such as prices and location, but also if the host is going to be a welcoming tour guide or a surly innkeeper.
While you're more likely to receive a warm welcome from folks who will be delighted to help you discover the city, it’s also important to get a feel for the hosts before choosing your Montreal B&B accommodations.
