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 whether it was feeding you nourishing breakfasts, providing information on the Bruce Trail or car shuttling you to hike start or end. Congratulations to all of you! Looking forward to meeting and greeting more hikers in the spring 2022 and hosting your stay in Dyers Bay, North Bruce Peninsula! Due to Covid 19 restrictions only the Guestroom is available for booking in 2022 and preference is given to guests hiking the Bruce Trail. Call or message to book.

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 on the Peninsula.


Hiker's Heron is located on the Northern Bruce Peninsula, near the shores of Dyers Bay. We are just steps away from Bruce Trail access and a 25 minute 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.
