Ontario: Where to Stay in Port Hope – Moonlight & Pines Bed and Breakfast

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of visiting The Municipality of Port Hope with 2 full days packed with activities and delicious foods. In the evening, we stayed at Moonlight & Pines Bed and Breakfast. Quietly tucked away in Ganaraska, Moonlight & Pines is a 4 season bed & breakfast that is an approximate 20 minutes drive from the downtown Port Hope. We were graciously welcomed by our hosts Helen & Colin – who have been living there for about 15 years. We stayed in a private suite with our own set of doors that opened up to a breathtaking view of the Ganaraska Forest.



Our Bed & Breakfast included our own private suite with entertainment and a game room. Our suite was decorated with original artwork, including examples of photography, painting, mosaic and tapestry.

The bedroom features:
King sized bed
En-suite bathroom
Heated floors
Walk in closet with bathrobes
Bar fridge & microwave
Coffee maker and kettle with complimentary coffee, herbal teas, and hot chocolate


Games & Entertainment  Room features:
Pool table
Library of books for your reading pleasure
HDTV, CD and blue ray DVD players, with a full selection of CDs and DVDs
Wall-mounted electric fireplace for ambiance & a little extra warmth
Wifi connectivity




Helen provided a hearty breakfast for each guest (that will leave you rolling out of there!), served based on our selections made the previous day.

First Course – included a freshly squeezed orange juice & Bircher Muesli. For our second course, we chose 1 of the 12 items available on Helen’s menu! I opted for the sweet potato hash & my boyfriend opted for Helen’s carrot & ginger souffle – which is out of this world! We loved our breakfast items so much, Helen emailed me her recipes for me to share on this blog! (I will do this in a separate blog post)

Second Course choices are:
Sweet Potato Hash
Chickpea & Pepper Omelette
Carrot & Ginger Souffle
Rustic Vegetable Torte
Puffed Cheese Omelette
Crustless Dill & Spinach Quiche
Apple/bacon Pancake Pie
Baked Nutty Berry French Toast
Blueberry French Toast
Super Apple Bake
Blueberry or Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with local Maple Syrup
Traditional Bacon & Eggs


Helen’s breakfast also includes:
Fresh baked Homemade muffins
Colin’s Homemade Bread for Toast with Helen’s raspberry or strawberry jams or marmalade
Choice of several varieties of Loose Leaf Teas or Fair Trade Coffee







Helen & Colin were fantastic hosts and made our stay feel like home away from home! Helen’s breakfast was a feast – my photos honestly doesn’t do it justice. The home owners were both incredibly down to earth – sharing their stories and experiences about pretty much everything. I highly recommend Moonlight & Pines and am looking forward to our next stay in the near future.
