Explore the Majestic Bruce Peninsula

Welcome to Hiker's Heron Bed & Breakfast

Hiker's Heron Bed & Breakfast offers accommodations, delicious home-cooked breakfasts, and a friendly atmosphere for hikers, cyclists, and all other adventure seekers on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula. Mere steps from the Bruce Trail, and close to many other exciting sights and activities, this is the perfect vacation spot for the bold and the adventurous. Relax on the deck or in the gazebo after a day exploring and enjoy the Georgian Bay view. On a clear day you see Lion's Head Point to the south and Cabot's Head to the north! Sit around the firepit at night and stargaze the Dark Sky Preserve. Hiker's Heron BB offers pet friendly accommodation, with some restrictions!


Due to ongoing restrictions presented by the Covid-19 virus, Hiker's Heron B&B will be closed after Labour Day and reopen for the season in May 2021. In the interest of public safety, and limiting the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus, Hiker's Heron B&B will continue to practice Covid-19 protocols until further notice, including limiting the number of guests to two rented rooms, not three. Guests will eat breakfast at staggered times and enhanced cleaning of shared spaces and surfaces will occur frequently. It is recommended that you bring a face mask to the Peninsula as some stores require, or prefer, the use of face masks. Please bring your own personal toiletries as we cannot always safely share at the B&B. Thanks to all hikers, guests and friends who stayed with me this past season. I enjoyed meeting you and hosting your stay on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula! Thank you to the impressive Bruce Trail End-to-End hikers who completed the goal of hiking the entire Bruce Trail, all 900 kms this season. I am grateful to have been included in that journey! Congratulations to all of you!

About Me

Hello, I am Kathy, your host at Hiker's Heron Bed & Breakfast.


I have lived on the Northern Bruce Peninsula for 14 years. As an avid Bruce Trail hiker and a former competitive long distance cyclist, I have the expertise to assist in planning your exciting hiking and cycling adventures here on the Bruce Peninsula.


It's not just adventure that you'll find here at Hiker's Heron. You can also take home a colourful and inspirational hand-crafted piece of art to remember your stay here.

My woodburning art is one-of-a-kind & completely unique, just like each experience you'll have here.


Hiker's Heron is located on the Northern Bruce Peninsula, near the shores of Dyers Bay. We are just steps away from access to the Bruce Trail and a short drive to the nearby communities of Tobermory and Lion's Head.

You'll enjoy a peaceful and scenic drive up the Bruce Peninsula, with plenty to see.
