Gail and Ralph are retiring.

After more than ten years, it is time for us to pursue other directions.  On September 30, 2016, we will be closing the doors to The Swan and The Peacock Bed and Breakfast.

We want to let all our guests know how much we have appreciated your support and loyalty. We have been very fortunate with our successes and to be able to meet so many wonderful people over the years.  It is also very special for us to be able to say that our guests became our friends. We will miss the daily interaction with all the interesting and fascinating people.

Our immediate plans after we sell our amazing home will be to spend more time and energy on our health and to travel.

Again, our many thanks for the opportunity to serve you.

Gail and Ralph Swan

We are located in the village of Ayr, just a short drive to Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, St. Jacobs, Paris, Brantford and Woodstock.

There's lots to do in the area including adventures by the Grand River Rafting Company.  They meet you where your trip begins and provides various Rafting Adventures from self guided kayaking to accompanied rafting, Fishing Trips on the Grand River or Fishing Trips on the Nith River and Romantic Starlight Paddles.  Contact the Grand River Rafting Company.
