The Green Woods Inn loaded with historic charm and atmosphere, means you no longer have to settle for a stereo-typical hotel room for your stay in Kingston, Ontario.

Set in its own grounds Green Woods Bed & Breakfast Inn presents a relaxed atmosphere in a restored country home, providing modern convenience in an atmosphere of culinary delight and luxury. It is situated on the world renowned Rideau Heritage Route (the east side of Kingston), close to Fort Henry, where the majestic Rideau Canal, and the St. Lawrence River meet Lake Ontario – Gateway to the beautiful 1000 Islands.

Breakfast is always a special occasion and we take great pride in providing our guests with a stay and culinary experience we trust they will cherish and remember with delight.


As one of Kingston’s finest ‘Historic Inns’ (‘Listed’ historic property, originally built C 1850) Green Woods Inn, Bed and Breakfast, is located on the east side of the city providing easy access to Kingston, the 1000 Islands of the St. Lawrence River, Historic Old Fort Henry, Canada’s Royal Military College, Land O’ Lakes and Prince Edward County.

With downtown located just five minute away we provide a spectacular entrance, offering amazing views of Kingston as you cross the LaSalle causeway crossing from the east to the west side of the Great Cataraqui River. Queen’s University is just a few minutes away and we are conveniently positioned 2km. south off Highway 401 (exit 623), – ideal for those visiting Kingston and also for the 401 traveller. All in all we are the perfect central location to discover Kingston and the surrounding area!

Historic Inn - Innkeepers


In 2002, Nigel & Tessa gave up their busy business lives to ‘follow their dream’. At the time they were partners in their own electrical/mechanical design/build engineering company and sole proprietors in their ‘award winning’ business consulting company in Richmond Hill, Ontario, achieving recognition by winning the Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce, business achievement award.

Becoming dissatisfied with their day to day lives they decided that life was too short not to do what “they wanted to do”. They had always talked, as many do, of running their own Inn, with visions of welcoming guests from far and wide to their own old historic property. So in 2001 they started extricating themselves from their ownership in the engineering company, determined to follow through with their dream. Finally settling in Kingston Ontario they purchased, renovated and established Green Woods Inn, Bed and Breakfast, opening in 2002. Both Nigel and Tessa developed passion for culinary arts and now, with over 13,000 breakfasts served, pride themselves on providing, as one guest put it, a “breakfast to die for”.

Their continual pursuit for excellence has also resulted in recognition through “World Travel Awards 2017” as being in “the top 3% of accommodation worldwide for Customer Satisfaction”. As Nigel and Tessa put it: “When you really enjoy doing what it is you do, then work becomes a pleasure, and this reflects in a great guest experience”
