My husband and I had the great pleasure of spending 2 nights at The Highland Manor. So happy we chose this beautiful property for our first experience in a B&B. This house is incredibly beautiful and has been restored to perfection by proud owners, Linda and Paul. The moment we arrived, our ever welcoming hosts immediately made us feel at home and comfortable. Our room was lovely, spacious and immaculate! Linda prepared the most delicious breakfasts and went to great lengths to make us feel pampered during our stay. Fantastic getaway!!

My husband & I had a wonderful time at the Inn. The house is absolutely stunning! Our room was spacious, yet cozy and it had a working fireplace. Linda was kind enough to make dinner reservations for us at one of the nearby restaurants and the main Downtown strip was within walking distance. When we returned to the Inn, Paul got the fire ready for us. No better way to spend your anniversary, then sharing a bottle of wine, in front of the fireplace, in a beautiful place and then fall asleep in one of the most comfortable beds ever! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Thanks, Linda & Paul xoxo

My husband and I stayed at the Highland Manor early this year. The B&B is truly magical if you like old world charm. The room was perfectly done with french decor and quite spacious. The host is exceptionally friendly and booked us our dinner reservation in town for the night.
If you go around New Year's - Owen Sound has the festival of lights. Take a carriage ride around town at night- it's quite magical.
The bars all have live music and people are ever so friendly. The location of the Highland Manor is few minutes away from main town - it's easy to get there just by walking.
We would definitely go back to Highland Manor - thumbs up for a city girl like me!!

We found this site on line via Trip Advisor. What a gem. The B&B was clean spacious, well appointed and the hosts were superb. If you plans include Northern Ontario or the Bruce Grey Counties be sure to make this your destination of choice! The only down side is the ladies felt it could use more heat on the cool days of fall.

Room Tip: Four rooms all would be a good choice.

A classic building, Linda and Paul are entertaining and helpful hosts, fantastic breakfasts (Day 1: maple-orange french toast with strawberry compote; Day 2: southwest eggs with fresh croissants...mmm - hungry just remembering!)
We spent a weekend at the end of September watching the salmon run up the nearby fish ladder, river, and up to the spawning beds a few km up a lovely trail, then went for a fantastic meal in town.
A perfect weekend!

Room Tip: We were in the "worst" (smallest?) room - it was lovely!

There's a reason this is the number-one rated inn. If you are thinking of staying in or passing through Owen Sound or the Bruce Peninsula, just stay here! You will be quite happy you did.

The home is lovely--I wish I had taken more time to sit in the library--and the rooms are very nice. Our room was sunny and light, and the bed was phenomenally comfortable.

The breakfast was excellent. It was delicious but not fussy, filling but not overly so. A clear winner.

The hosts are superb. Linda and Paul are friendly, funny, and informative. In fact, they're hilarious. It was a great pleasure to meet and chat with them (and I don't say that about all B&B hosts). They gave us great advice on restaurants, scenic walks and drives, and even arranged the owners of a general store on the peninsula to open their doors so we could have an ice cream stop.

I could not ask for more and only wish we could have stayed longer. This is an unqualified five stars.
