This distinctive Bed and Breakfast is not just a grand and impressive estate - it’s a home. Step through the front doors of MacKechnie House and feel its warm embrace. Let the workmanship of days gone by capture your imagination.

“Walking in and out of your house, it is still one of the, if not the only place of inspiring health beauty and mystery in Cobourg. Indeed, Northumberland.

There are few places that instantly cloak you with the time and place of it's birth like your home with its creaky warmth and brightness. Like a grandmother offering you her shawl that seems so nice and feels so cozy, you just want to sit down in the sunshine of the window”.  

Ted Amsden - Cobourg’s Poet Laureate

Among the visual treats, look forward to a vast collection of captivating books, unique artwork and the bold, beautiful colours.
Savour the culinary delights of professional Caterer and Owner, Cathryn Thompson.

Your bedroom, finished in one of four engaging styles, awaits you.  Enjoy the Grand Salon with new friends or old. Let the aromas of Cathryn's cuisine entice you into the Dining Room each morning, and don’t be surprised when garden-grown herbs or freshly cut flowers adorn your plate!  Sip wine on the front porch, or wander the gardens at your leisure.

Don't forget to check out our Romantic Escape and Added Touches. Or, you may want to Cook with Cathryn in the Kitchen.

 While you are at MacKechnie House, take the opportunity to make the most of your stay and see what Cobourg and this beautiful part of Ontario have to offer you!

Be completely pampered, yet feel right at home. That’s what awaits you at MacKechnie House.

Again and again.
