We stayed at Mayne Island Resort this weekend. We are return visitors and, once again, it did not disappoint. Warm, welcoming staff; beautiful, well-appointed condos; and the gloriously laid-back vibe of Mayne Island. We were here with another family and our three children and it was the perfect family get-away, with beach walks, a trip to the Saturday market to... More

Rooms in the main inn are older but well kept. Felt like a B & B, with self serve coffee and toast in the morning. Great amenities with a restaurant and beer & wine store attached. As we were kayaking, it was a great place to launch and enjoy the scenery.

My husband and I visited Mayne Island resort for a weekend getaway in the spring. We were blown away when we got there - we had booked a dog-friendly cabin and it was so beautiful. The view was incredible and the cabin was immaculate and well kept, not to mention it was fully stocked with dishes so we could cook... More

Amazing views, spacious and well-appointed units, and gracious staff make this place one of the best island resorts I've been to. We went here for a well-needed girls trip in the middle of winter. Initially booked two rooms, but decided to upgrade to a nice suite and it was the best decision of the quick vacation. We walked around the... More

Just spent three nights in one of the luxurious one bedroom villas looking out towards Bennett Bay - it was wonderful. The modern units are clean, comfortable, fully stocked and steps to the ocean. Spent our time kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking and biking. The main lodge appears a bit worn and somewhat 'natty' but the lunches were basic but good... More

Edging the stunning shoreline of picturesque Bennett Bay, this upscale and immensely comfortable retreat coupled with on property Bennett Bay Bistro, is a hidden gem. Mayne Island is relatively small (only about thousand year-round residents), and refreshingly remote. The resort sits a mere 2.4 miles across the island from Miners Bay (community’s gathering center) where our float plane landed Mayne... More

Set beside the stunning Bennet bay you are awarded fantastic views. There is plenty of wildlife to see and trails to walk. Kayaking and paddle board rentals are easily available and a reasonable price. The resort is over 100 years old. We stayed in a lodge room which was basic but well presented. It had wonderful views over the bay....all... More

Hello Elmotto1, thank you for writing a review. I am happy you enjoyed your stay at the Inn and I really appreciate your input. Our Inn rooms are basic and are ideal for the more budget minded (myself included). They have all of the basics you'd expect in a standard hotel room along with free WiFi, double glass view doors...

Mayne Island Resort is truly a little piece of heaven. I just got home from spending three nights in one of their seashore cabins. The cabins are beautifully appointed with nothing left to want for. The owners do everything they can to make your stay exceptional. The dinners at the Bistro are to die for and the massage that I... More

This is a wonderful get-away! We stayed in a Villa and it was perfect and private with a gorgeous view of the Islands. The restaurant was equally good. There is a beautiful gentle beach which would be great and safe for children. You can rent row boats and Kayaks.

Hi Deltadawn, Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
