A Rose On Colonel By B&B
Although Roy, a private guy, usually likes to stay in hotels when he's touring, there is one exception.
When he's in Ottawa, he always stays here. Maybe it's because proprietor Ann Sharp is a great gal, a serious folk fan and understands that the hours of a touring musician are different than those of an eager 'up and at 'em' tourist. The rooms are grand, the food is fabulous and it's close to the Ottawa Folklore Center [www.ottawafolklore.com] if you need any strings. Oh, it's close to other tourist-type things as well. Check it out. www.rosebandb.com
