My new Bride and I have just returned from our wedding held in Owen Sound this past weekend (June 3rd 2006) and we are in a word "Amazed" yet again with the Highland Manor. We had experienced the Manor previously in February (2006) for both of our birthdays and were so impressed with the incredible hospitality and beautiful charm of this wonderful home that when we were deciding where to spend our first night as husband and wife, the Highland Manor was our one (and ONLY) choice. Our wedding ceremony was held in Owen Sound at another location, but for our photographs we had no other location in mind but the Highland Manor. When we arrived to have our wedding photographs taken, both Paul and Linda greeted us at the front door with a camera in their hands ready to be the first to get a picture of us as a newly married couple. We spent the next two hours (plus) in the beautifully manicured gardens of the Manor having our wedding pictures taken while Paul and Linda were escorting the many throngs of visitors through the House during the Owen Sound "Open Doors" Weekend celebrating the wonderful architecture that the Owen Sound area has to offer. The entire time we were having our photographs taken, we felt as if we were not only guests of the Inn, but family..... Our wedding party which consisted of (not only) a group of adults, but several children were treated like gold and even had both Paul and Linda snapping shots of us to add to their collection of memories for the their wonderful Home. Arriving after our long wedding day, we found the Highland Manor as beautiful as we had left it earlier in the day, and retired to our suite (The Honeymoon Suite), which in our opinion is the most beautiful room in the entire house.
When touring the Highland Manor, Paul and Linda’s decorating skill, attention to detail, and true love for their home create an ambiance that is felt from the moment you arrive.
Upon waking the morning after our “big day” we found the dining room filled with guests that were aware (ahead of time) that we were the “newlyweds” that had spent our first married night together at the Manor. Our breakfast experience in a word was “incredible” as both Paul and Linda are gifted with culinary skills that must be experienced to be truly appreciated. Linda and Paul’s attention to detail went as far as to leave us a freshly printed copy of one of the photographs that they had taken the day before in a frame at our breakfast table for us to keep as a memento of our stay.
To call the Highland Manor merely a Bed and Breakfast doesn't do justice to the experience of staying in this amazing home. When making reservations over the telephone (or through e-mail), and before you even arrive to meet Paul and Linda, you are given the feeling that you are speaking to good friends that you've known all of your life.
Paul and Linda's hospitality, grace and incredible charm make the experience of staying in any of the amazing rooms they have to offer as wonderful as anyone could imagine an "away from the ordinary" getaway to be...
Both my new bride and I so highly recommend the Highland Manor that anyone can freely contact us to hear first hand about our experience and understand our excitement of telling everyone about Paul and Linda’s incredible home and wonderful charm. We are already planning our first wedding anniversary at the Highland Manor because there is no other place that we would feel as welcome as in one of their beautifully decorated rooms, and experience one of their incredible breakfasts.
Experience the Highland Manor you will not be disappointed.
