My son and I visited Holly Cottage many times over past 5 years. I visited my son in Owen Sound and stayed there maybe 20 times making fond memories each time. Each and every time I stayed there we had a wonderful time. The last time we stayed was in August when my son turned 13! We will be back!

I stayed in this B&B with friends on 27/28 Sept. The place was clean enough, beds were alright and the food was average, compared to other B&Bs i've stayed. But the main reason the rating is so low is because there was no water for 2 mornings in a row. The first morning it happened, the hosts blamed us for...

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend and only have positive comments to share. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was delicious and filling. David and Norma (the hosts) even had to deal with a planned power failure on the weekend. They got up earlier in the morning to make sure the coffee was started before...

Norma and David Collis go the extra mile to ensure the comfort of their guests. All sorts of extras are provided by them. They are flexible over breakfast times which means we were able to have a lie in some of our days there. As if by magic a tea tray is found to be outside our door around 2pm,...

The accomodations are very comfortable and reasonably priced - and Dave and Norma are full of valuable, accurate information to help...

We stayed at the Holly Cottage Bed and Breakfast in mid May as it had been recommended to us- and it was conveniently located on the Bruce Trail, a portion of which was our mission to cover that week end.

“I stayed in the fireplace room on two occasions. I loved to open up the windows on 3 sides of this bright second story room to hear the birds early in the morning, and enjoy the breezes. I believe this room can accommodate 3 with a cot (kept in a large walk-in closet). While I travelled solo, I'm sure this room would be perfect for a couple. Ample space. Highly recommended.”

“Our tip is to ask for the room that has the jetted tub, it is a room on one end of the house, separate from the others, so more privacy this way. The other two rooms are nice, but they are beside each other on other end of house with shared bathroom so we were happy to have chose the jetted tub room as we did.”
