Built in 1905, The Mornington Rose has undergone many changes in the last hundred odd years, and is once again restored to its former beauty. A labour of love for Victoria and Murray, the house now shines with comfort, character, and elegance. Classic taste and inviting furnishings blend with a bright, airy atmosphere to create a fresh, but still traditional look to welcome guests.
Murray, previously a Human Resources and Labour Relations Professional, and Victoria, a former Elementary School Teacher, have opened the Mornington Rose Bed and Breakfast as their retirement project.
Murray is an excellent baker, making a variety of scones, bread, and cookies from scratch for guests to enjoy. In his spare time he makes wood, acrylic and gemstone pens and other small turned items on his lathe in his workshop.
Victoria (a.k.a. Torrie) is now chef de cuisine, making an interesting and varied gourmet breakfast each day, using local produce and vegetables and herbs from the kitchen garden on-site. When not preparing breakfast dishes in the kitchen, she is fusing glass in her loft, creating unique serving pieces and home decor, wall, window, and garden art, and beautiful glass jewelry items.
Victoria and Murray enjoy the challenges of running their own business, and have incorporated their flair for innovative cuisine and artistic endeavours to provide a exciting and memorable Bed and Breakfast experience for their guests.
Both Victoria and Murray have both successfully passed the BASICS.fst Food Safety Training in Canada Certification Exam.
Mornington Rose Gift Certificates are available in any denomination.
