Stay in a country Doctor's century home in rural Ontario, as one of our guests said, “Walking in the door to the Doctor's House is like entering the portal to another era. The décor and attention to detail sweep you back to the feeling and charm of a younger Canada in it's beginnings. The Doctor's House is really a “home” with a welcome in every room.”

We serve home cooked local organic, where possible, food and cater to special diets such as gluten free, vegetarian, diabetic, etc.

Our specialty is Bavarian Pancake made with locally grown and milled flour and served with local maple syrup and a fresh fruit and yogurt cup. We use fresh roasted free trade coffee and a special Earl Grey tea.

We are near the best beaches and sunsets in the world, take a walk on trails through the Niagara Escarpment a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve, or if you are more energetic, you can hike the Bruce Trail, which runs along the edge of the escarpment and gives spectacular views of Georgian Bay one of the largest fresh water bays in the world. It is so large most people think of it is a separate lake but it is really part of Lake Huron.

If you like waterfalls then we have many that are just a short walk from your car or some that you have to hike to through some very scenic countryside.

If wine is your choice, then it might surprise you that we have a number of excellent wineries in our area, but if beer is more to your taste we also have some excellent craft breweries.

We are located between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay in the Famous Great Lakes recreation and tourist area.

Dive or take a glass-bottom boat cruise in the Fathom Five National Park at Tobermory.
Boat cruise to Flower Pot Island where you can tour the lighthouse and hike the island.
Hike to the Grotto in the Bruce Peninsula National Park (this is a beautiful cave).

We are also near 15 distinctive lighthouses and marine heritage sites, many local markets, great fishing, canoeing, and kayaking in the many rivers and lakes, excellent cycling, museums and several golf courses.

In the winter we have some of the best snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and ice fishing. We also have dog sledding in the area.

Great place to celebrate special events such as, weddings, family reunions, women's or wellness retreats, special birthdays and anniversaries, etc.

For an excellent family activity, we have the EXPLORE THE BRUCE ADVENTURE PASSPORT that sends you to very interesting places in our area. When you find 7 out of the 12 listed, you will receive a tee shirt. All of this is FREE.

If you are looking for beaches, adventure, exploring or peace and quiet, this area has it all.

John and Miriam are such a lovely couple. Very welcoming and very kind! Check-in was very smooth as we did arrive later than expected (11pm). Thank you John for waiting up for us and ensured that we comfortably settled in. The house is an old Victorian house, very well-kept and very, very beautiful! We have never seen anything like it! The room was very comfortable, clean and it was just what we needed after a four and a half hour drive and especially after a long day of travelling and sightseeing. The bathroom is shared and very beautiful too! The location is central to all attractions and not hard to find. We got to have breakfast at 8:30am both days and we cannot get over how amazing the pancakes were! Never had anything like it! For those who are visiting the Bruce Peninsula area, I highly recommend staying here. You will have an experience you will never forget! John and Miriam goes above and beyond to ensure that their guests have a very comfortable stay.

Very nice B&B with friendly hosts. One drawback was the shared bathroom especially considering the price. Still recommended.

John and Miriam we good hosts. We were warmly welcomed by John and shown to our room, which was spacious and comfotable. Once we settled in, John was kind enough to provide us with a map of the area and helped us plan a day trip that would offer the most scenic route of the Bruce peninsula. Overall, we had a comfotable stay at the doctor's House B&B.
