Haven on the Bay B&B
Ranked #1 of 1 Red Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 13, 2010

I spent 2 nights here during the summer and found accommodations to be acceptable, but not anything to write home about. The beds are slightly uncomfortable. The house is slightly noisy. The breakfast was nice but bland. Leftovers were offered to us for lunch, which was really appreciated. However, I felt at times like we were intruders. The hosts' moods fluctuate between hot and cold. We spent a bit more time at the B&B than anticipated due to rain (otherwise we would have been at Sauble Beach or hiking the Bruce trail), and felt nervous even asking how to use the tv and dvd player (they have a wonderful movie collection, though). Perfectly adequate and a bit cheaper than Island View B&B, but I preferred the latter.

We try very hard to please as many people as we can. Alas, we are not always successful. We do cater to families and that can become noisy at times. We are one of the few accommodators that allow families with smaller children to stay with us. This type of B&B is limited on the Bruce Peninsula. Our mattress replacement is now complete. New beds may need some "breaking in" over time. We do appreciate all comments, good and not so good. They always help by making us more cognisant and identifying areas we need to improve.

The food and its presentation were both platinum. Care of every detail was paid in food preparation, table service, room preparation and cleanliness, and hospitality.
Ruth and Gord are excellent hosts for all their guests, and especially enjoy the visits of the young!
We would not only return, but would recommend it to friends, business associates and colleagues.
Sincerely,
John Atkins

We were thoroughly satisfied with our stay at the Haven - had a kid in the party and the hosts did all to make us feel at home. Location is convenient, breakfast was really good (would have loved some more of those fritatas though!). Will stay here again. Indu

This is our third year coming to Haven on the Bay and it has become our favourite holiday by far. The hospitality is terrific along with the family suite! Our 5 boys look forward to this vacation every year and so do we.The breakfasts are something to dream about and enjoy every morning. The rooms are always clean and the beds so very comfy. There is lots to enjoy and do in many areas nearby. To find a B&B that will take families is a wonderful thing. We highly recommend this B&B as a vacation destination with its country cottage charm, delightful breakfasts and great hospitality you can't go wrong. We will definitely be returning every year.( M&J and boys.)

We stayed for 2 nights with the plans on going to the beach and having a relaxing time away from home. We were very comfortable in our room. We have stayed in a lot of timeshares and other B&B's and I would have to say that the beds in our room were by far the most comfortable that we have slept in.

The breakfast was home cooked and served to you by the owner in their bright and open dining room. The freshly baked muffins were wonderful.

They are walking distance to a small beach, good for young children. They have lots of games and Legos to keep your kids occupied as well. The living room is large with lots of seating.

We will definitely stay here again.

The simple, clean, country decor was only surpassed by the delicious, plentiful breakfasts in this B&B home. My accomodation was upgraded to a room with an ensuite to my pleasant surprise. The whole establishment had an atmosphere of pleasant country accomodation without the cluttered feel of some other B&B's I've experienced. This B&B has a "Getting to know you policy". If you're a guest, you may invite you friends and relatives in to share breakfast with you as long as it's arranged the night before. I shared my table with 4 extra guests and the owners, Ruth and Gord were only too happy to serve them a delicious, gourmet breakfast.

The bed was extremely comfortable, having just had the mattress replaced two weeks before my stay.

All in all this was the best B&B I've ever encountered.
