Taylor-Made B&B
Ranked #2 of 13 Lion's Head B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2016

The occasion? A family event in Lion's Head. Our accommodations? 3 nights at Taylor-Made B & B for the second year in a row. Doug and Diana treat you like kings. From the generous super-tasty scratch breakfasts, comfy beds, proximity to Lion's Head downtown/harbor, and on-point local tips re. the Bruce Trail and other local attractions, Taylor-Made can't be beat. Might even get a shuttle to your day hike....how about that?!!!

Room Tip: Try Rm. 5!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved our stay!

When we saw it from the outside we thought it may be a small place but once you get inside, it's a pretty big space. We stayed in room 4 which was right in front as soon as you enter. The room was spacious enough and the toilet was made as an en-suite. The shower was an enclosed area within the room, it didn't bother us much.

What makes this place great is the breakfast and the hosts. Doug and Diana and wonderful people and they made us feel extremely comfortable. They did their best to answer all our questions (it was out first trip up there) and gave some great recommendations for places to eat at and visit. Our morning breakfast were a great place to interact with the other people staying at the inn and we would end up spending over an hour just chatting with them. Also, Diana has got the be one of the best home cooks I've come across, she makes 3 different kinds of bread fresh, daily! She will ask you what you would like the night before and will have it ready at your preferred time. My husband and I together tried the waffle (topped with strawberry and whip cream), scrambled eggs (with cheese and chives), veggie omelette, sausages, muffins(a different one everyday) and HOMEMADE JAMS!!! The jam was so good that I mentioned to Diana I wished she would sell them and just as we were leaving she hands me a bottle of the strawberry rhubarb jam and two muffins for our journey.

They also recommended some great places to see for our upcoming west-coast trip! We will definitely be back here, and not just for the vistas but also the wonderful hosts. :)

Room Tip: Although we stayed in room 4, I would recommend room 5 since it offers the most privacy.

Hi Nisha,

Thanks for your review...you were great guests ,and we were so happy to make recommendations for your trip out west. The Bruce is a truly spectacular place to visit, I never thought anything could rival Tofino and Ucluelet, but this is a little piece of heaven!!!

Looking forward to your next visit!

Doug and Diana

Spent last weekend on The Bruce walking around the beautiful Lion's Head peninsula. Booked a night at Taylor-Made B&B on the basis of the excellent reviews. I was not disappointed. Doug and Diana were wonderful hosts and made me feel like one of the family. I stayed in Bedroom 5 which is very nicely decorated, has a really comfortable king size bed and a lovely ensuite bathroom. Had a great dinner at the Lion's Head Inn on Doug's recommendation. Breakfast was delicious, every bit as good as the other reviewers have said. Looking forward to coming back with the family once they arrive in Canada.

My friends and I stayed at Taylor-Made B&B for two nights. The place is great. The hosts are great. We'd love to come back.

Lion's Head is a small, quiet town in Bruce Peninsula. The house itself is near the corner of a cul-de-sac. At night, if outside, you can hear all the crickets doing their symphony practice.

Diana and Doug are solidly good hosts. They're accommodating (they arranged a late arrival), good cooks (great omelettes), and knowledgeable of the area (advised us on the park trails). And they're very nice people all around.

So there you have it: no need to go to the Caribbean to have a nice weekend; just book yourself some time at this one.

Thanks for the great review, we really enjoyed having you stay with us! You picked a great time to visit our area, and see the beauty of the trails in spring...wait until you see The Bruce in the fall, it is even more beautiful! It was a real treat to have 4 computer experts in the house, thanks for all the wonderful tips!

Booked in for a Saturday night and from start to finish - staying at Taylor-Made was a wonderful experience. Doug and Diana are lovely people and exceptional hosts. Their B&B is situated on a quiet road across from some beautiful farm land and is within walking distance to everything in the village of Lion's Head.

Our room (on the lower level) was very well-appointed, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was simply outstanding - the most beautiful omelette, excellent coffee, a bowl of fruit salad loaded with gorgeous, fresh fruit, homemade bread, homemade yogurt, and local jams. When we didn't eat the blueberry muffins, Diana packed them for us for our car ride home. So thoughtful.

Looking forward to returning!

A spot we will revisit for sure! Doug and Diana treated us royally. Special attention had definitely gone into the meal planning and preparation - breakfasts and dinners were extensive, beautifully presented and delicious.
A very warm, welcoming B&B. A great retreat.

We really enjoyed the whole group staying with us...we love having hikers enjoy the trail regardless of the season...wish we had more snow for your stay for snow shoes, but we hope next year when you are here we will have typical winter weather for the Bruce!
