We spent a night in Tara and stayed at this beautiful B & B. This is an amazing historic home, and the hosts could not have been more hospitable or accommodating. Tara is a charming little town with lots of history that the hosts are glad to inform you about. The room was quiet, comfortable and spacious. The price was...

This is a load of rubbish. This review is precisely what she threatened to do if we did not refund money to them. They came with a dog without letting us know. I do like dogs my son has one which I love but I will not let him bring it to our home as the dander will upset guests...

We had a lovely stay at the Doctor's House B&B - wish it could have been longer than one night. B&B was conveniently located for getting to a family wedding in the area. The hosts are thoughtful and welcoming and the booking process was easy. Breakfast was delicious as well! I would highly recommend this property.

Miriam and her hubby are super gracious and helpful host.... very characteristic of the era of the Doctor's House. I found it very intriguing to be in a comfortable room but " back in time ". The breakfast was superb . The grounds of the B and B are like a luxurious park !! What I was very grateful for...

We found this place on airbnb and we keep coming back.. It is incredibly clean, The breakfast is always delicious, the beds comfortable, the garden is so lush, i should post some pics, but they are on my phone.

Extremely clean, well-restored century home. Helpful re: food allergies. Extensive knowledge of locale and where to find good food. Grounds open to all. Seating guests together at breakfast encourages meeting people from other countries.

Charming Victorian House full of antiques and history. John and Miriam are excellent hosts. All nine of us enjoyed the breakfasts, rooms and grounds. Each room has it own theme decorated tastefully and very comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you want a tranquil place to sleep, relax or vacation, the Doctor’s House Bed and Breakfast in the quaint village of Tara is the place to stay, instead of a hotel, in the Grey-Bruce Counties. We are just a short 20 minute drive to Owen Sound, Sauble Beach and the beaches at Port Elgin and Southampton. We are also an ideal location for day trips to Tobermory, Wiarton, the Bruce Peninsula, Collingwood and the Blue Mountains, Kincardine and the Bruce Nuclear Visitors’ Center. ... more   less

“Suggest re-locating antique desk beside bed and same in bathroom - trip hazards in the dark.”

“All the rooms have very different benefits depending on what you need, e.g. bed size, bathroom, stairs etc. The School Room does face the street and thus takes on a bit of street noise, plus street lights. There is no one above you, so you don't hear footsteps.”

“Anyone staying in the top suite take note that the stairway leading up is dark, narrow and the steps do not have enough depth to fit your whole foot.”
