I chose Bear Cove B+B primarily because hotel reviews in the area were a mixed bag, and the reviews were good. And I was more than delighted with my choice. I came to stay first weekend of May with visitors from the UK so wanted to impress - and managed to do just that!
The setting is spectacular, we were lucky with 24C cloudless skies everyday, the house looks over the lake and the lovely gardens create a fantastic wind break. there is not one but four outdoor seating area to enjoy the view, relax and unwind.
The hosts, Jim and Doug felt like family friends after an hour, and couldn't have made us feel more at home, inviting us to use their BBQ, enjoy the hot-tub as much as we liked not to mention the cooking and baking.
The breakfasts were huge - with fantastic meat (sausage and bacon - which is not always good in Canada, being form the UK we are quite the specialists!), fresh baked break, eggs and potatoes.
I'll definitely come back again - this is Tobermory's best kept secret - you don't feel the need to go anywhere else!
