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.

We came to explore the Bruce Peninsula, and we are glad we did. We had the ground floor ensuite room. It had a superking sized bed, which was so comfortable, and a great shower room, with superb toiletries. 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 ;)

Our stay at the Doctor's House Inn made up for the cold and rainy weather during the last weekend of June. The Inn is a large, Victorian-style home with a number of rooms, shared bathroom, living room, dining room, and a beautiful garden. The hosts were pleasant, approachable, kind, and very helpful at giving suggestions on what attractions to visit... More

Beautiful home, with gracious hosts. Nice comfortable rooms, and breakfast was fabulous. Stairs may be issue for some, although there is a ground floor room. Local sites are few but Owen Sound, skiiing and golf are not too distant.

So often, we dream of travelling off into the dark blue yonder, and we forget that there are treasures right under our feet. We received blank stares when we told people we were going to a local B&B, just because. They couldn't understand why we would spend time close to home, just for a night away. We had received a...

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

We stayed 2 nights in this nice place. We were 4 including 2 kids and had the top floor just under the attic. The apartment was huge, it was clean, cosy and the owners very friendly and forthcoming. We got a lot of first hand advice on trips and other interesting things to do in the area. we liked the... More
