Thank you for your genuine sweet hospitality. We truly enjoyed a much needed relaxing time at Bonnie Doone.

We will surely come again. See you soon. Laurie, Eraldo and dog Mojo


I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of my husband and myself. We checked out of room #7 this morning and had a wonderful stay with you. We loved our room (perfect with the dog) and your location can't be beat! Thanks for making us feel at home on our little "Baby Moon". Your guest service and friendly atmosphere were appreciated! We hope to stay with you again in the near future!! Amy-Lynn, Matt & dog Tori

We love our annual visit to Grand Bend & our stay at Bonnie Doone.  Such an honor to share your view, the chairs, the easy access to the's all great!  Still tying to hear the sizzle Grandpa (Barney) Jones claimed one could hear as the sun hits the water at sunset.  Just not listening hard enough , I guess! Trish (Jones) Borger


We thank you for an amazing, well kept, clean & friendly "Home" to stay...See you next year.  Maggie Philemon


Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy everything.  Would love to come back again! !

Ryan, Jenn, Gary, Dylan & Bryce


 Hello Kristie and David: Moira and I arrived home to Dundas after having enjoyed our brief respite at Bonnie Doone---dropped in at Sugar &  Spice on your recommendation, also Bright Cheese shop at Shakespeare, Rheo Thompson in Stratford, then enjoyed the peace of the swans on the river.  Just wanted again to thank you both for the welcome we received, plus the A1 service accorded us. It's plain to see that Bonnie Doone remains in good hands and that the wonderful reputation is intact. Long may it be so !!.  Sincerely, Jean Leggate


My husband and I have stayed here twice and are hoping to make it our annual getaway together.  We love the balcony rooms and the beautiful views.  So close to the beach yet nice and private.  We love it here!! Dave & Rita Marcon


We have been coming to the Bonnie Doone every year for almost 20 years.  We started out just my husband and me, then we brought our 2 daughters, and now we bring our grandson. We have the best multi-generation memories of coming to Grand Bend and also of the Douglas family (owners of Bonnie Doone). If you need a place to build family memories I highly recommend coming here to stay. You'll enjoy yourself rain or shine - and the sunsets still rate one of the top 10 in the world. I can tell you that it is amazing to sit in the chairs and watch the people come to the beach at sunset to take pictures or just enjoy the view but to also look up at the Manor and the Court Yard and wonder about the people who sit in the famous chairs of Bonnie Doone. Larry & Lori Otzel


My grandfather, Bernard Jones, was a friend of the Douglas family and, in fact, owned the cottage where their home now sits.  He used to say, "If you're very, very quiet, when the sun hits the water, you can hear the sizzle." When I saw all the gorgeous sunset photos, the first thing I thought of was the sizzle!  Trish Borger


 Wonderful, relaxing & comfortable.  Maxine M, Ohio


 Enjoyed our first anniversary at Bonnie Doone!  Thanks for the incredible view & service.

This is my first visit to Grand Bend and your hotel has a breath-taking view of Lake Huron!  I’m so thrilled with my room & view – can’t wait to share my experience and pictures with my friends and family back home.  Thank you so much!  Sue C, Cambridge


This is our second time here and we love it!  You sure keep the place spotless!!! (Cleanest windows in town!!)  Thanks for the stay… Beautiful sunsets!!  Brian, Owen Sound


  What a view!! Will be back for more.  We don’t have anything like this in Ottawa… Stephanie, Mylene & Kiwi


This is our 10th consecutive year.  We wouldn’t miss it!  The hosts are fabulous, our room & view THE BEST, the facility is immaculate.  Your dog, CALLIE, is the icing on the cake.  Love the Bonnie Doone experience.  See you next year!  The girls from Brantford



  We had a wonderful night away at Bonnie Doone.  The staff and place is one of a kind.  Looking forward to our next stay here very soon.  Also, to my surprise, my wonderful boyfriend proposed this morning on the beach!  YaY.  Thanks a million.  Nicole & Kris


  A Home away from Home!  We have always enjoyed coming to Grand Bend!  This place sealed the deal!  We will be back and stay a few extra nights.  Very clean and quiet.  Love the view.  The place to be.  Thank you all. Bradley & Kim


  This was just a fabulous place to stay, everyone was so friendly and helpful.  If we are ever this way again, it would be a pleasure to stay again.  Linda & Jan, Solihull, England


What a glorious & wonderful use of space.  We found a little bit of heaven in Room 10 at the Bonnie Doone Manor.  Johann & Jody


 We have stayed at several places in Grand Bend.  This has to be one of the nicest!  We so appreciate how clean the rooms were and the staff was terrific.  Beautiful views and the perfect spot on the beach.  Thanks so much.  The Arnolds


My wife and I had a fantastic time… again!  The rooms are clean and beautiful and the staff friendly and welcoming.  We hate leaving!  Dave and Lori


 We finally got to sit in the Bonnie Doone chairs.  Loved our stay!  Thanks.  Maureen & Shayne
