Extremely clean, well-restored century home. Helpful re: food allergies. Extensive knowledge of locale and where to find good food. Grounds open to all. Seating guests together at breakfast encourages meeting people from other countries.

Charming Victorian House full of antiques and history. John and Miriam are excellent hosts. All nine of us enjoyed the breakfasts, rooms and grounds. Each room has it own theme decorated tastefully and very comfortable.

It was a beautiful old home with each room having a unique theme. The beds were extremely comfortable, the washrooms excellent, and the breakfasts best of all. The only issue was the bedroom doors didn't lock...

Our room was beautiful and comfortable....the only issue was the street noise through the open windows during the night since we faced the street. The breakfast was yummy but seemed to be missing something to make it complete......perhaps some protein in the way of bacon, sausage, etc......all three... More

John and Miriam were incredible hosts. They cook a mean breakfast, offer great recommendations for area attractions, and manage quite an impressive B&B. We were really lucky to have found this gem. Tara is close to everything - from cave hikes to boat cruises to beautiful beaches.

The breakfast was a filling home cooked dish ( Bavarian Omelette) and fresh local fruit & Yogurt. The hosts were very helpful... More

I loved staying here. It is close to many of the local attractions, the house is beautiful, the room is great, and the breakfast was yummy. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this inn as a place to stay.

Our stay couldn't be better! The Doctor's B&B is well located in this beautiful little city, called Tara. The house was super clean, with a wonderful breakfast, and the owners were very kind and polite all the time! We loved it ;)
