Holly Cottage Bed & Breakfast, Meaford, Georgian Bay, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada

Excerpt from Grey-Bruce Diversions Review on Holly Cottage B&B by Tanya Mazza
Holly Cottage Bed & Breakfast, Meaford, Owen Sound, Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada "When one considers a B&B , one looks for the casual ease of home. Most however, will admit to craving a little bit of coddling,and Holly Cottage delivers the perfect amount.There's the unexpected plate of home made cookies in the living room and the timely offering of a pot of tea ( select from over 20 varieties).Guests are welcome to borrow snowshoes for a winter trek  or  relax outside on the private porch. In the morning, guests will find their preferred brew of tea or coffee on a pretty tray outside the door. From experience, the Collis' know that the most interesting sights are discovered by staying at B&B's so they love to discuss local attractions or plan a day's excursion. It's clear that Norma and David really enjoy their home and sharing the charm of Holly Cottage".
