The Doctor's House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Tara B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 12, 2014

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.

This is a beautiful home with a lot of original pieces of furniture and themed décor. Each room has a special feeling and decorating.

John & Miriam are great hosts and make you feel welcome and are very accommodating .

The breakfasts are made with local, organic foods and make you want to eat better at home :)

The gardens are beautiful and peaceful back yard for just relaxing.

Both John and Miriam know a lot about the area and are most willing to help you plan your days.

Will go back asap.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a special feel to them and have a theme.

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. Our room was on the second floor without AC, and we were there on a very hot and humid night, but we had a fan in our room which helped cooling down a bit. We were then served a wonderful home made breakfast, thanks to both John and Miriam who were ready to serve everybody promptly. We took our morning coffee in the beautiful garden, it was so peaceful.

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 'Tara' was very quite, and we watched beautiful stars in the evening. In the apartment, there are various facilities which provide us with enormous convenience, such as oven and many plates. We cooked some food in the kitchen.

Thanks!

Hosts, John and Miriam, spent several hours helping me prepare for my "living funeral" or as I coined it, my "FUN-eral". Miriam prepared an excellent vegan luncheon and dinner for my friends. Her specialty pancakes were also well received on the following morning.
John spent a great deal of time organizing my photo slideshow and sang and played his guitar at the service.
Both worked diligently to make my friends comfortable and well-fed for the two day occasion. They made the activities run smoothly and paid a great deal of attention to details.
Bravo to both of you. Blessings,

Room Tip: all rooms are comfortable

John and Mariam were amazing and so courteous, we had a great time. We only stayed for the weekend, but there were so many things to do and see in Bruce County, we wish we would of stayed longer! John and Mariam both showed us a map which located the best scenery spots in Bruce county and were so knowledgeable of the area. Overall, I would recommend The Doctors House for anyone who likes to feel cozy and just at home.
