A perfect place to stay for a day, a week or even longer. Fantastic place were you will feel at home the second you walk thru those doors. The highest standards to a B and B I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot). No improvements needed what so ever, it was a perfect stay! The hosts are great and make you feel Welkom in there home. Thanks so much and I will defenatly visit again.

Excellent hosts, great location and super accommodation. I would highly recommend Doug's and Jim's B&B. We stayed in the winter and ventured to The Grotto which is beautiful at that time of year.

Thank you!

We traveled up to Tobermory around November time and despite the cold weather we received an extremely warm reception from Doug and Jim. They have a fantastic house, served us delicious food and shared some great stories with us. If you ever head up this way I strongly recommend you pop in for a visit. You wont regret it!

Our family of four often stays at B&Bs, as we find it a nice way to explore Ontario. After inquiring about Bear Cove, we were basically told we were not welcome there and we might prefer the local trailer park...seriously? Their loss.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled with family

My partner and I feel this reviewer may have been mistaken which B&B they had their phone conversation with as we always recommend a local B&B or our friends lake front cottages that cater to families with small children. These two businesses have the staff and facilities to supervise and co-ordinate children's activities. We decided early on that our B&B would be an adult only getaway as stated on our BB Canada and TripAdvisor site. Our home is situated right on Lake Huron with three acres of forest and our B&B has many decks and stairs not suitable for toddlers. There is a large hot tub on the main deck for guests to use and we felt this would also be a safety issue for small children. Inside our B&B the upper level large suite is up a flight of stairs to a loft sitting area with another balcony. On the main level there is a large fireplace in our common area which would also be a safety concern. We are disappointed and concerned with the title of this review as we have had families with teenage children stay with us and received excellent reviews. My partner is a father of four with three wonderful grandchildren, so this review does not reflect how we would discuss options for families on the phone. Thank you in advance for reading our response.

Our stay at Bear Cove Bed & Breakfast, from the first moment of arrival, was met by nothing less than complete and wonderful hospitality. Doug and Jim are wonderful hosts who know exactly what they are doing. They opened their home up to us and made us feel very comfortable as guests. The Parker-Bateman suite that we stayed in was clean, comfy, had everything we could possibly need, and had a balcony with a great view of the lake. Our breakfast was a collection of culinary delights

For a quiet and serene getaway, Bear Cove B&B makes for an excellent choice in the Tobermory area. We would definitely recommend a stay there and we certainly look forward to visiting again soon.
