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.
