“Clean and Friendly (Our home base for the Bruce)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

My partner and I stayed here for 3 days and nights over Canada Day long weekend, it was our access point to the region (close enough to get to all the local attractions, far enough to feel secluded). It's on a dramatic, almost lunar looking shoreline of Lake Huron and the property itself is beautifully designed and maintained with a number of places on the property to quietly sit and enjoy the view.

Our hosts were gracious and walked the line between being part of our experience and leaving us to be undisturbed - We feel like we were welcome guests in their home while having a separately designed wing of their house to stay in. Breakfast was 3 courses, was delicious and left everyone happy and full. We were also lucky to have three other couples who were all wonderful staying there while we were, making our breakfasts long and chatty affairs with lots of laughter etc.

Our room (the Garden room) was spacious and clean with a king sized bed and little sitting area, both overlooking the lake.

AOTL is both a well managed and professional operation while being a more personal experience than what you might get from a hotel - We hope to return some day...

Thank you, both of you where a pleasure to host in our home! In fact, it is guests like you that made me decide I wanted to open our home for a few months a year. Such a good mix of couples for the Canada weekend, we had lots of fun and laughter over breakfast which is a real treat for us.
Numerous times through my day I still have memories about the fun I had listening to you all at breakfast! See you next time.....it is the guests that set the tone and you all did just that.

My parents, sister, brother and me stayed here for two nights, May 17-18, 2014. We we're the only guests, so we had the whole ground floor to ourselves. Donna and Morgan have been very friendly and welcoming to us all!
When we arrived, we were all blown away by the amazing location at the lake. We were right in time to view the beautiful sunset over the lake from the private deck. The next morning Donna surprised us with an amazing breakfast, including a special treat for my father's birthday.
After spending a very nice day in Bruce Peninsula National Park and Tobermory, Acres on the Lake was the perfect place to return to and relax. The breakfast on the second morning was just as good as the one on the first!
We all loved our stay with Donna and Morgan and would recommend this place to everyone visiting Bruce Peninsula.

My husband and I had a wonderful two night stay at Acres on the Lake B & B- May 30 & 31, 2014. It is about a 1/2 hour drive from Tobermory and is a treat from start to finish. The location is amazing....beautiful decks and landscaping and serene sunsets. We enjoyed coming back to this kind of setting after a busy day ! Donna and Morgan are great hosts and Donna's breakfasts are amazing....don't plan on lunch any time soon after eating one of her breakfasts - and leave your diet at home ! We were the only ones at the B & B ( early in the season ) so we had the place to ourselves. Basically-it was like having a large two bedroom apt to ourselves with amazing views out of every window ! The house is gorgeous and immaculate. We had great sleeps on the comfortable King bed with very nice bedding ! We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a special place to stay.

My wife and I stayed here in June of 2013. We searched very hard for a place like this. It is a very nice B&B, off the beaten track, very secluded and quiet, and right on the water. Since we were early in the season, we were the only overnight guests and Donna and Morgan volunteered a room upgrade to the king suite. It was very well appointed with a good view. The main guest level has an open layout with plenty of seating and a full kitchen if you want to make your own fare. Please realize that this location is some distance from the main road. Follow their directions and all is well. We spent most of the day exploring the Bruce Peninsula and picked up fish tacos in Tobermory to take with us before checking in. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed our dinner at the picnic table out on the rocks. With the perfect weather there was no better spot to be. A robust breakfast was served in the dining room the next morning and we had some very engaging conversations with the hosts until it was time to leave for the Manitoulin ferry. I'm writing this review almost a year after our visit. An "Acres on the Lake" card fell out of last year's travel bag and this one-night's stay had lots of good memories. Cindy & Don

Room Tip: Go for the king suite, if it's available.

My boyfriend and I spent the September long weekend at the Acres and it was absolutely beautiful. We were greeted by our hostess Donna who gave us a tour of the beautiful property and showed us our room. On our bed there was a gift from our hosts and everyday Donna would leave us sweets in our rooms, which were delicious! The breakfasts in the morning were probably the best part of our whole stay, we would have a full 3 course breakfast everyday. We can't wait to go back again next year! Thanks Donna and Morgan!

So we decided to take a trip up to the Bruce Peninsular and have another stay at Acres on the lake .
What can i say it was perfect yet again and a room upgrade was a lovely gesture by Donna and Morgan.
A new seating area had been put in place since our visit last summer which we able to take advantage of as it was outside our room.
Thanks again Donna and Morgan for great hospitality and a great stay.
