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.

Woodcrafts

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.

Location

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.
