Gillanderry Farms, Pakenham, Ontario
Gillanderry Farms is an inn / B&B located in Pakenham.
The cottage-style limestone farmhouse built by Frances Gillan in the 1850's, proudly exhibits on its walls the original offer of purchase, dated October 18th, 1836. Since that date, additional farms have been acquired over the years. The farm consists of 125-cow milking herd with free-stall, milking parlor set-up and separate calf nursery; a grain drying and storage facility; and 1000 acres of cropland. Farming has continued a Gillan tradition and our sons, Mason and Jim (6th generation), have taken over the reins and their children are already giving a helping hand!
Enter this inviting home through its Victorian front door directly into the sunny, open kitchen/family room, complete with fieldstone fireplace. The thirty-inch walls, deep window sills and pretty window treatments will make you feel at home. Breakfast, attractively presented in this very relaxing setting, offers a full table of scrumptious food. It's a different breakfast each day at Gillanderry!
On the second floor, you have the choice of three guest bedrooms, two with queen-size beds and one with twin beds. One bedroom has a lovely little adjoining room with a single bed (the Chastity Room).
The four-piece bathroom is very roomy, offering two sinks and plenty of counter space! Except for the bathroom, the stairs and bedrooms are all carpeted. Windows are full-casement throughout the house and all bedrooms offer ceiling fans.
View the farm crops and livestock, or stroll through the trees by a spring-red stream with our friendly dog, "Rex". Interesting conversation at the breakfast table and in the family room with your hosts will leave you with a warm memory and a wish to return soon!
Nearby restaurants include Love That Barr Sports Pub & Eatery, White Lake Restaurant, Centennial Restaurant, and Step Up Ruby's Restaurant.

I worked in the area, and choose to stay at a bed and breakfast.Stayed there for 3 years. The family made one feel right at home.
I can hardly wait for my next visit!Where else can you get food that tastes as good as mom's :-)
Located near our home, the museum is constructed of Ottawa Valley White Pine and exhibits about 30 antique farm tractors -- mostly John Deere, as well as many gas engines and other interesting artifacts. Art, as well as our sons, are only too pleased to start up a tractor for you, while telling you the history behind many of them. In our collection, is the first John Deere tractor purchased by the Gillans in 1944. Over fifty years of transition from human and animal power through gasoline to diesel powered equipment has been experienced. Restoration is an on-going hobby at the Gillan Farm!
