“Friendly and accommodating B&B”
Reviewed July 23, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Bev was a great host from the time we connected by phone til the moment we drove our her lovely property. She was helpful and knowledgeable about the area and hikes and she had lots of time to talk and answer questions. She offered to pick us up at Cypress Lake parking (which is hard to book) though we managed without this service. She cooked fish dinners when I inquired about her 'fish' and fruit stand in Tobermory. The view is lovely facing the sunset and the water quite warm; the beach area is directly in front of the house and is pebbles and sand.
Bed welcomes you to her whole house, though we were out during the day hiking, but we felt we could use her bathroom, living space and hang out with her in the kitchen learning about the area. The only unfortunate thing is small rooms and shared bathroom for the price one usually pays for private bath and fancier rooms in tourist towns similar to Tobermory . I think all of the Tobermory area , though, is pricier due to high demand and few places to stay. I must say, though, that our house mates were sweet and quiet. And, our host, Bev, makes you so welcome and comfortable being part of her home while you are there.
Bev serves a full breakfast with eggs and home made jams; she bakes muffins in the morning as well. Downstairs where the bedrooms are, there is a dining area and fridge, and sitting area and beach towels for our use. The bathroom is modern and clean.
For the friendly and relaxed feeling about the place, Bev's great personality, proximity to Tobermory and Cypress Park- the Grotto (the B&B is between these two main sections of the Peninsula off Highway 6, but it is a good drive down the side roads to her place), Northern Dreams is a great choice. Oh, did I mention we got to do our laundry too?
Thanks, Bev, for being such a great host and tons of fun. Your apricot jam is to die for! Laura

“Excellent stay and host!”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Three of us stayed at Northern Dreams for the Labour Day long weekend. The weather was still pretty warm so it was nice to stay close to the water and enjoyed and stargazing at night. The host is extremely friendly, accommodating and provided a wide range of variety when it comes to breakfast. Highly recommend for small group of friends and families.

“Very friendly and gracious hosts who made their home our temporary home.”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Beverly and her Aunt Donna were lovely hosts who served fantastic breakfasts. The location was quiet and less than 10 minutes from downtown Tobermorey.
After a busy day touring the area we would return to sit on the upper deck and enjoy the view of the bay.
Thank you Beverly and Donna for making us feel like family.

“Amazing place to stay”
Reviewed August 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I have booked our stay pretty late given that it was a booking for the long weekend in one of the most popular areas for cottaging. Bev was able to work around our circumstances and accommodate my request. This place has exceeded our expectations. The location was spectacular - right on the lake, in the quiet harbor with spectacular sunsets and miriads of stars every night. There was a canoe we could use and we have enjoyed paddling on the lake a lot. Every morning there was breakfast ready for us. Bev made sure that we had variety every morning - from eggs to pancakes to French Toast, we tried it all. When we felt like exploring the area, we would go to the downtown of Tobermory, which is only a short 12 min drive away. Bev is knowledgeable and is ready to provide excellent advice about the area. Overall, we are extremely satisfied woth our stay and would book a room here again.

We stayed at this B&B overnight. Appreciate how Beverley has maintained the place and how she makes her guests feel at home. Served us the scrumptious breakfast. The place is kept clean and neat. The view from B&B is amazing. We enjoyed the campfire right in front of the B&B. And experienced breathtaking dark sky view. Loved this place and will come here again.

“Perfect! Pretty, clean house located directly at the lake, lovely host!”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our stay at this wonderful house was just like we imagined it should be. The house is located directly at the lake and has a veranda where you can have your delicious breakfast with the lake view. The house is clean, furnished very tasteful and offers everything you need to feel perfectly comfortable. The host is more than lovely, very hearty. We would recommend this bed & breakfast to everyone (friends, families, couples).
