Welcome to Culverdene House B&B


Step back in time without leaving the comforts of the present at Culverdene House Bed and Breakfast. An example of the neo-classical style, Culverdene House was built in the 1840s for United Empire Loyalist Major Joseph Culver. The building is protected under the Ontario Heritage Act for its architectural and historical importance and is now a unique B&B operated by Joyce and Roger Humbert.

Two spacious bedrooms with tall windows and private bathrooms are available for our guests. The North Room has a gas fireplace for that cozy feeling on cool evenings. The South Room with its relaxing blue and white colour scheme has an ensuite bath. The elegant living-dining room reserved for the use of our guests features original contemporary art, historical photos and a Nordheimer piano of 1890s vintage. Books and games such as Scrabble and crokinole are available for your enjoyment.

The house sits on 1.6 acres treed with walnut, honey locust, chestnut, spruce and cedar. Guests are welcome to lounge on the front verandah, sit in the back garden and watch the birds or toast marshmallows over the firepit in the yard.

We serve full breakfasts with locally sourced ingredients such as pancakes with maple syrup and sausages, bacon and eggs, quiche and fruit. If you prefer a continental breakfast, cereal, scones or toast with honey and jam are available. We are more than willing to accommodate any special dietary needs.

Whether you are attending a local event such as a wedding or the Norfolk County Fair and Horse Show, travelling on business or looking for a base from which to explore Norfolk County, you will find our location on Highway 24 convenient. We are just south of the town limits of Simcoe and a 10-minute drive (or an easy bike ride) from Port Dover and Port Ryerse, close to Turkey Point and the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve.

Norfolk County has something for everyone – charming villages, quiet natural sand beaches, vibrant beach towns with a variety of places to eat, shops and cafés, fishing, boating, hiking and cycling trails, motorcycle routes, ziplining, antique markets, farmers markets, golf, wineries and micro-breweries. Norfolk County is Ontario’s garden, Canada’s most diversified agricultural region and also its most forested agricultural region. Norfolk produces asparagus, corn, sweet potatoes, popcorn, ginseng, lavender, peanuts, watermelon, tomatoes, honey, cheese, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, longhorn cattle and more.
