Watch Hill Bed & Breakfast
Southampton, Ontraio, Canada

Watch Hill is truly Southampton’s Grande Dame, a Beach House home-away-from-home overlooking the mouth of the Saugeen River where it meanders past a working lighthouse toward Chantry Island in sparkling blue Lake Huron. We have three luxurious air conditioned suites, The Chantry Suite, The Huron Suite and the Saugeen Suite. All our Suites have their own ensuite, and two also have TV and fireplaces.

The Harbour Suite is a cozy, comfortable self contained suite with a private entrance, king size bed, Lazy Boy leather sectional, TV, kitchenette, breakfast items provided; sleeps four. Available October through May. 

Our Homes Magazine recently featured Watch Hill in their Grey/Bruce County Summer 2017 issue. Pick up a paper copy, or view the pdf online here See before and after pictures of the 2 year renovation process that brought our Victorian beach house dream to life.

Downtown offers no shortage of attractions, boutiques, and various dining establishments. Fun days, adventures and special occasions can be arranged (please ask us about this); explore the beaches, spend a day on the river, bike the trails or hike the paths.  We also offer spa services such as massage, reiki, yoga, etc. 


We are retired (this time we mean it) from very rewarding careers. We have spent the last two years remodelling and renovating Watch HIll, a Victorian Beach house and the Grand Dame of Southampton. We have been featured in Our Homes magazine, and are on the Saugeen Shores Christmas Tour of Homes. People who visit us remark on how beautiful our home is, and several have encouraged us to share it with others. So, we are. We are told we are excellent hosts, and hosting is one of our favourite things to do. We have stayed in numerous B&Bs ourselves and believe that it is far superior to renting a hotel room.
