“Home away from home...”
Reviewed October 18, 2010

We actually went to Tobermory for the first time just after the summer season ended to celebrate our anniversary, so it was not crowded at all. We don't scuba or hike much but it was a a great get-away weekend to relax and enjoy the area.

Molinari's w as easy to book and pleasure to stay, with a great atmosphere to boot.

Unlike other B & B's. Molinari's provided quarters with a separate entrance which really appealed to my wife and I. We didn't have to walk through someone’s house to come and go or even announce same.

The accommodations were tops and cleanliness was never an issue.

Our visit to the Tobermory area was made so much better by the kindness and assistance from both Maria and Bob. Even their son Dylan was such a well behaved youngster and not timid when interacting with us at dinnertime or breakfast.

Maria even made a special cake for us to top off our weekend anniversary celebration.

My wife insists that we should go back to Tobermory at some time in the new year and she will only stay at Molinari's. Just hope their not booked up!

Maria and her family are fantastic, also those two Sheppards. We have a wonderful time staying there, like a family gathering. One day just too short, we want to go there again next year.

Our stay was lovely! The room was clean and comfortable, and the bed was fantastic. It was very handy having the microwave and fridge, and we especially enjoyed having the balcony area. The Molinari's were helpful and the food was excellent. The location was great as well- just a 10 minute walk into town.

Would definitely stay there again!

Bob & Maria are the best B&B hosts, ever! We had a queen size bed that was VERY comfortable; extra soft sheets. Slept like a rock. Guido Molinari was a famous Italian artist who lived many years in Montreal. He was the uncle of Maria, and the B&B is named after him. But, Bob and Maria do not have the last name of Molinari. We had dinner at their restaurant, and the food was great.

This B&B is nothing short of spectacular. A stay here will enhance your stay in Tobermory.

Rooms are clean, spacious, well layed out and are tastefully and modernly decorated.

The Molinari's are fantastic hosts and will make sure you get the most out of Tobermory.

We stayed at Molinari's July 27 - 30th, 2010. It was an excellent vacation, the bed and breakfast was superb! The room was very comfortable, the location was excellent and the food was wonderful. Our host and hostess were very happy to offer tips on what to see and they took time from their very busy schedules to meet with their guests. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast. We will certainly be back next year for another visit - hopefully for a longer stay as Tobermory rejuvinates the body and soul. Thank you Marie-France and Bob for operating an excellent business - second to none!

We definitely made the right choice staying with the Molinaris. This is the nicest B&B we have ever stayed at. We had the chance to stay in two different rooms during our stay, both beautifully decorated and comfortable. The rooms are equipped with fridges, televisions, and everything else you need. Two of the rooms have a balcony at the back of the house, while the third room offers plenty of inside space including a large bathroom. The rooms are all spotlessly clean with modern finishes that are rare in B&Bs.
The Molinaris are extremely kind and welcoming people. The breakfast they provided included many different options, and they were willing to cook eggs or pancakes for a small fee. They baked scones, muffins, and cookies as well. They were available to get us anything that we needed. You could eat in the dining area, or outside on the patio.
Upon arrival, Mrs. Molinari provided very helpful information about sites, activities, shops, and restaurants in the area. This kind of service is extremely rare. She provided maps and brochures that proved to be very helpful.
I highly recommend this B&B if you are planning to visit the Bruce Peninsula. We hope to go back and visit again one day.
