Most of the B&Bs we have looked at have had a portion of the house say 3-4 guest rooms with an owners/managers seperate apartment or zone. So GST would still apply I'm thinking.

I'm not sure. You'll need to talk to an accountant before arranging anything.

I'm really after up upand running B&B.

When you see a property you like do you need to add GST on the price. Or do you pay what you see?

No Idea when buying a business thats why I gave the Manitoba starting a business in the first link.

Also if you talk with the Manitoba advantage people you can gain loads of ingformation from them as experts rather most of us hearsayers

Reading through all these comments and I feel that the ones saying "What kind of a B&B do you imagine having" being the most relevant.

Ontario is the political centre of Canada and can be equated to the equivalent of London albeit we are comparing a city to a province.

Manitoba is probably the largest profitable/industrial city on the edge of what is considered the "praries" or "flat lands" of Mid Canada. Winnipeg accounts for the biggest chunk of income/expense then any other city in Manitoba, so really, when people outside of Manitoba speak of it, they are majority of the time actually speaking of Winnipeg.

Winnipeg is a big city but more laid back and less political then Toronto or Ottowa (obviously!), there is more of an 'earthy' nature to the locals then your typical Ontarian (making a sweeping generilisation here, I know it doesnt apply to all!) and you tend to find more hikers/campers/wilderness buffs in & around Winnipeg then you would in Ontario.

So, how do you see your B&B? Is it going to be near all the central govt/tourist attraction hot spots in Ontario or is it going to be laid back & geared to catering to backpackers and nature/wildlife enthusiats?

Ontario is bigger than spain and france combined....so that rather a generalisation. Ontario contains the political hubs of the country..Ottawa and Toronto, but there is far far more to it than that!

The Algonquin or cottage country, or 1000 Islands areas in no way remind me of London, and are all hot B&B areas.

No need iaink, I realise the size difference and countryside differences.. what I was trying to say in my post is the overall "feel" of the provinces. Ontario is more of a politicaly motivated province & heck of alot more population in comparison to Manitoba which most of its population centres around Winnipeg & the countryside is less developed. I realise its a sweeping generalisation that doesn't apply to everything/everywhere, but thats my overall take on the two provinces, so THERE

Oh damn these decisions!
