We have just enjoyed 2 nights at the Highland Manor in Owen Sound. The house is beautiful and has great history. The room we had was really comfortable and warm. Breakfast was delicious. The hosts, Linda and Paul were full of good restaurant recommendations and also lent us a great map book to explore the Bruce Peninsula. Their hostipality was...

The house itself still needs much work, and cannot be considered "restored" in the accepted sense. It retains the plaster and lath walls, wallpapered over, therefore I'm guessing no wall insulation. Much of the detail work appears amateurish, including the plumbing I was able to see. It was raining when we were there and I observed water gushing out of...

For obvious reasons, your review has deeply saddened us. When you checked out, and we proceeded to clean your room, we found the note that you wrote in German in the guest book. Fortunately, we were able to have this translated immediately by the German couple who were staying across the hall from you. When they indicated that your note...

Linda and Paul have all the attributes of excellent hosts. They have restored a wonderful old home to make it comfortable and very inviting while making one feel that you were in days past with all the opulence of Victorian style living. The rooms are lovely and the beds very comfortable, and at night the lack of noise is soooo...

The Victorian house itself is extraordinary, quite beautiful, furnished appropriately, and very well maintained. The room we had was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and generous. The hosts, Linda and Paul, are agreeable and helpful. A star in the B&B world, for sure...

The Highland Manor is a beautiful home and certainly a bed and breakfast that I would return to again. The house is lovely and there are many interesting antiques to look at scattered throughout each room of the mansion. The outside of the house is beautiful, too, on a cliff top with nice old trees. The hosts were excellent and...

Our stay at the Highland Manor Inn: Grand Victorian B&B was simply lovely. The owners were very quick to respond to all of our emails and inquiries in detail. As this was our first trip to Owen Sound, they made several recommendations and even provided us with a map of the region labeled with their "must-see" hiking trails, look-out points,...

We spent 3 lovely days at The Highland Manor while getting together for a family reunion. The hospitality was a10 out of 10. Beds and food were great and the stories were very entertaining. I travel a lot and stay in many great hotels. I would rate The Highland Manor as a five star!

We were 4 couples visiting Owen Sound and stumbled upon this hidden treasure of a bed and breakfast. The quiet surrounding would never make you think you were in the middle of a city. The historic building was stunningly renovated and the rooms had luxurious bedding that encouraged a great night's sleep. The hosts were very accommodating to our groups...

We needed some accommodation for visiting family members and fortunately the Highland Manor had space available; the stay at the Manor was the highlight of the trip for our guests, and I will try to think of some occasion that I could stay there myself! Beautiful old home, spacious comfortable rooms, quiet, excellent breakfasts and hospitable hosts, a porch for...
