We stayed in the Crow's Nest a few times which is like a 2 bedroom apartment with living space, kitchen, bathroom. It's a great space if you plan to spend any time at the house during the day (as opposed to being cooped up in a hotel room). Lots of towels provided. We had no problems with the TV and... More

Past guests may be upset with title of this review but it needs to be said for families booking this accommodation, especially if it's the family suite on the top floor. The owners John and Miriam are a lovely couple and after living past a full day here, the owner, John, made a few comments that were frowned upon. Here... More

Thank you for your review but there are a few points that need clarifying. 1: I told you we don't lock the doors when we are here by ourselves, but they are locked when we have guests in the house but not until I go to bed after midnight. I tell people this to reassure them they are in a... More

I really enjoyed my stay at The Doctor's House B&B! I stayed in "The Crow's Nest, " which is the uppermost set of rooms with a sitting area, bathroom, and kitchenette. It felt more like a home rather than a motel or hotel. The owners even cooked us breakfast! It was simply amazing. I would stay there again in a... More

We stayed at The Doctor's House bnb while vacationing in the Bruce Peninsula. The house is very clean and well maintained. There is a lot of history to explore. I must say the hosts have a done a commendable job in preserving the history as well as keeping the place up to date with technology. The house has a very... More

We enjoyed our stay in Tara. The Doctors House was well set up and the king bed bed was excellent . Everything was to our liking with gracious informative hosts. There is no air conditioning but the large trees and grand old house keeps cool in summer.

We booked a night at the Doctor's House Bed and Breakfast at the very last minute, as we were on a road trip with nothing planned ahead. We were welcomed by Miriam who took the time to learn more about us and give us customized information based on our interests! She gave us great insight on the local must-see and... More

We booked a two-room apartment in later June. Thanks to John and Mirian, they were so considerate that we even got a map from them. When you were there, you would realize that John and Mirian really spent a lot of efforts on taking care of all the things! BTW, the breakfasts were delicious, especially Mirian's pie! This small town... More
