About Danby House

After 30 years in the event planning industry in Toronto, Barb realized her dream to run a B&B. She purchased a century home in 2012 and brought her vision, and workmen! to a neglected property. By Christmas of that year, she was open for business. Her home is fully renovated with modern amenities, well-appointed guest rooms with superior ensuites, all without losing the original character of the home. 


Barb is a charming host who believes in offering excellent service to her guests. She takes great pride in making your stay in the Markdale area memorable. Ask Barb about exploring the area; she'll offer many great suggestions.
