We stayed at the Highland Manor for two nights in July and absolutely loved it. It is more like an inn than a B&B, as the owners have their own separate living quarters, all the guest rooms are on the second floor and have their own ensuites. The house is gorgeous. The main floor rooms, library, dining room and music room are beautifully decorated and the main hall is lovely. Lots of hardwood and polished wood and 12 foot ceilings. The guestrooms are large and very comfortable with quality bed linens. Our hosts, Paul and Linda, were charming, hospitable and very helpful (made dinner reservations, lent us maps, etc.). And the breakfasts were delicious. The blueberry pancakes were light and airy and the cheese/egg bake was so filling that we didn't eat again until dinner. The location of the Highland Manor is great, within walking distance of Owen Sound (which we really enjoyed), at the top of a ridge. Even in the middle of this unbearably hot summer, the breezes kept the house cool and there was no problem with bugs. We loved sitting on the veranda with our coffee after breakfast, and with our wine before dinner. Can't wait to return - we had the perfect, relaxing break.
