I had a great few days in Cobourg. Willowmere's location cannot be beat. Literally right on Lake Ontario and steps to the fabulous Beach. The bed and breakfast is small and cozy. It's a little bit cluttered, there isn't a lot of room to move around especially in the bedroom, but that also accommodates a queen-size bed which is nice. Three piece bathroom, with a great shower which was important to me. Jane our host was very helpful. My sister forgot her beach towel and we also needed an iron and ironing board and she was able to supply us with both immediately. There are two dogs that the owners have that are very friendly and come over to say hello in the split backyard. Just a heads up if someone has a fear of dogs or is allergic to dogs or simply doesn't like them. They are gentle and very friendly and personally I enjoyed the interaction very much as I love animals. The town of Cobourg in the downtown Heritage district is very charming. Some good restaurants and cute little shops and ice cream parlors. You can definitely split up 2 afternoons of browsing around. Keep in mind though that it's a small town and all the shops and stores seem to close around 5. The only thing open in the evening is restaurants. It gets very quiet and shuts down very early at night. So if you're looking for a crazy nightlife adventure you might have to go to Toronto for that :-) otherwise this was a great little trip and I definitely plan on going back.
