My mother and I visited Tickle Inn this past August on the high recommendation of friends who had stayed there 10 years earlier. We even arranged our itinerary to ensure we could make a visit. It's a long ride up to Cape Onion but well worth it. The Inn was charming and the views were second to none.
We probably had the best dinner of our lives- at least our trip. We started with a fabulous carrot soup, then Triple fish- if you wish- (something like that) comprised of trout, shrimp and scallops in a fish shaped dish with fish shaped puff pastry on top, and for dessert a Screech ice cream cake that was incredible. We were so stuffed that we went for a short walk along the shore and then went to the parlour to enjoy songs and tall tales. What an experience. Other guests that were there were repeat customers and travelled there regularly and in this case to celebrate their anniversary.
Tickle Inn may not be a luxury accommodation as such (smallish rooms and shared washrooms) but one of the richest experiences you could ask for. A must visit.
