Our History

Welcome to Maple Cove B&B. When Mark and I purchased this stately beauty in 1994 we were able to visualize what it had been, a working farm and summer home to the Fruehauf family, moving on to all that it could be for us as a family. We imagined a place to raise our children, build memories and foster our dream of turning the space, one day, into a B&B.

The Process

The work was hard and long, as it always is with a 100 + year old house. It took us 2 years to get the house livable and that was ¾ of the house, the other ¼ we closed off for storage and puppies. Then the children grew up and started their own lives. In 2012 our journey to become a B&B slowly began. Once again, the work was hard, but the outcome was the dream we had imagined. It took us until 2014 to finish the renovations and start our application process with the township and low and behold the fruits of our labor of love were realized and we opened in 2016. Our goal when creating the space was to provide a peaceful retreat to reconnect, recharge and relax. With that as our mission, we made the hard decision to be adult only (21 +) so that we could provide parents a place to unwind, friends, a chance to reconnect, and couples a chance to have uninterrupted time with each other. Come enjoy the peace and quiet!

With 14 acres to play with, we continue to have ongoing projects from our gardens, to finishing the August house and to attempting to finish our bucket list of builds. You never know what we will think up next.

 We hope, when you visit us, you will feel all the joy, love and thought we put into each suite, to bring you a space that fosters a peaceful environment, a quiet get-away, the joy of reconnecting with loved ones, family and friends, and a chance to refresh your soul.

We hope to meet you soon,


Jan & Mark
