Welcome to Orillia's Destination B&B... your escape from everyday!
Creighton Manor was built at the turn of the century by or in honor of Captain Ogden Creighton, a land baron in the village of Atherley. Captain Creighton, a half-pay officer in the British Army, also had a hand in the Battle of Lundy during the war of 1812 at Niagara Falls. Before coming to the Orillia area, he purchased a tract of land in 1832, planned streets and building lots, and called this future settlement, Clifton.
Along the shores of Lake Simcoe, this exquisitely renovated Victorian will wet your appetite for that ultimate B&B experience with Queen size beds, fantastic ensuite baths, and fireplaces. Join us for the finest gourmet breakfasts you’ll ever have on the wrap-around porch overlooking the lake. Come and enjoy sitting in the gazebo for that perfect sunset, or just watch the world going by. Swimming, beaches, Casino Rama, biking on the Lightfoot Trail, sunset strolls along the water's edge, or just total relaxation. The Manor hosts offer local Marina & port pick up for that special night off the boat.
As you sit in the gazebo relaxing with that perfect glass of wine watching the boats go by after a full day of golf, swimming, sunbathing or shopping you'll have to wonder if there is any place better to be than at the Manor.
This Grand Victorian provides the perfect haven for that Romantic getaway, Anniversary or Birthday celebration, or you just need that night away from it all at a MANOR THAT HAS IT ALL...
Your Hosts: Levada and Doug Thurlbeck await you
About The Manor
Since the early 1900’s the Manor has been home to many families including the upper crust families of Toronto. The Manor was mainly a summer escape until around the 1940's when it became a year round home. It was said by some of the locals that a family that kept the manor as a summer home were residents of high society. The lady of the house at that time was part of the Toronto Opera and would practice her musical scale on the front porch and her husband was involved in the running of the Toronto Exhibition.
The Manor has been exquisitely renovated to its Victorian splendor from inside to out. It fell into a bit of disrepair over the years and needed some tender loving care. That's where the Thurlbecks come in. Levada and Doug purchased Creighton Manor in 1995 and have put their heart and soul into lovingly restoring it to the beautiful home it is today. They have decided to share their home with others by way of a Bed & Breakfast.
Guests have free range of the front parlor and dining room, wrap-around porch and the large gazebo over-looking Lake Simcoe, where breakfast is served in summer weather. As you still in the gazebo you'll wonder if there is any better place on earth to be. Across at the lake and park there is swimming, sun bathing, or a perfect setting for taking a romantic sunset stroll. The Manor is the perfect place for your wedding night, or for the bride to be and her entourage for the night before the wedding. Get that perfect picture on the gazebo or over at the water's edge. The beautiful dining room also doubles as an intimate boardroom for meetings of up to 10 people. We have two Golden Retrievers on site who love nothing better than going across to the park for a swim in the lake.
