The Story of 173 High Street
The idea for a hotel started several ago, with our son Peter's wedding to Claudia, in Southampton, New York. As a wedding present, Claudia's aunt put up many of the wedding guests in her stunning inn called 1650 Baker House. What a treat! We thought that it would be wonderful to offer a similar sleeping experience for guests in our Southampton, Ontario.
In 2014 we opened our Inn with just one room, and we called it The West Room.
In our first year, we exceeded our expectations in both number of visits and in the quality of customer reviews. On Airbnb we received a score of 5/5 and we maintain a 9.7/10 rating on Bookings.com. So, it seemed a natural decision to add a second room, appropriately called The East Room.
This year following a very successful 2018 we have added a third room. We now call it the South Room. Our largest room with its own sitting area and direct access to our glorious new sun deck.
In choosing great furniture, luxurious linens, an absolutely sumptuous bed and wonderful fittings for the bathrooms, our goal is to provide our guests with the most comfortable stay in Southampton, Ontario, and with just three rooms, we like to think of 173 High Street as An Inn for the Fortunate Few!
