Whether it was the shared entertainment space, the relaxing hot tub, the gorgeous sunset view from the deck, the countless relaxation/reading spots on the property, the lazy hammock, the illuminating lit up trees...

What can I say, I wish we had stayed here during our last visit to Tobermory! Doug and Jim are the best hosts you could have. The food was delicious, and the property itself is stunning. Can't wait to come back in the summer.

This place is special. Our hosts, Jim and Paul operate a superior B&B. From the warm welcome to the heartfelt goodbye, my husband and I felt at home.
