This lovely little limestone house is a "stone's throw" from Lake Ontario, walking trails, theatres, galleries, and downtown Kingston. Built in the late 1700s it's one of the oldest buildings in town, and is a favourite place of mine.....

.... You never know who will be your breakfast companions - they could well be a kung-fu expert or a Russian mathematician - but whoever they are, they're bound to be great. Interesting people seem to gravitate here, and it's not difficult to see why. It's not just the "Art and Gourmet breakfasts", which look and taste delicious and often have people running upstairs to fetch their cameras. "I enjoy cooking," says Barbara, "and I guess it shows." Neither is it down to the house, crammed with eye-catching pieces, ancient Chinese fans framed and hung on the wall, and delectable droplet crystal lights collected by Barbara on her travels. And neither can the garden take all the credit, despite having a patio overlooking the harbour, the perfect place for summer breakfasts, afternoon tea or even pre-theatre drinks. No - the essence of A Stone's Throw is Barbara herself and we're big fans. She is sparkling and it's a pleasure to spend time in her company. Central air-conditioning for hot summers; near Fort Henry and convenient for cruises around the harbour and Thousand Islands. Barbara has three cats by the way called Bentley, Chloe and Legacy, and Montgomery, a golden retriever.
