We stayed here in July 2012 for one night, because we couldn't stay at our usual place. We loved this B&B. The hosts were very accommodating, as we were traveling with our son. They made their home feel as if it was ours. We got to see deer up close at the house, while sitting on the back porch. The... More

My daughter and I stayed at shanoule for 2 nights. Bob and Joan were fabulous friendly, knowledgable hosts! This is the nicest B&B I have ever experienced....the home is unique, clean, beautiful....but the best part is how Bob and Joan make you feel welcome there. Bob went out his way to tend our needs and make our stay pleasant. Bob... More

I read through the reviews before booking and everyone is correct: this is a 5 star B&B. We felt very welcome. Bob picked us up from the airport and gave us a tour so we could later explore on our own using their rented car. The B&B is 6 miles from town so you need a car! The surroundings are... More

The following saying can be seen in several places at Shanoule Bed and Breakfast: “Cead mile failte.” Translated from Irish Gaelic this means, “a hundred thousand welcomes,” and that’s exactly how we felt at Shanoule. When Bob was giving us a tour of the B&B, he told us that he hoped that we would make their home our home for... More

If you are looking for a beautiful log cabin in a picturesque setting, look no further. We really enjoyed our stay at the Shanoule B&B and we could not have asked for nicer hosts. The other reviews are accurate regarding Bob and Joan's cooking, wittiness and story telling as well as their thorough knowledge of the island. We would definitely... More

Where to start? What to say that hasn't already been said about these wonderful hosts? Bob is an incredible cook as well as an entertaining and witty storyteller (Joan can hold her own as well in both departments!) Their pride in the Island and it's people is very evident. Their knowledge on the Island's history was almost encyclopedic! Their suggestions... More

Bob and Joan were very friendly, helpful hosts and this was a clean home. We got a unique perspective on island life that we would have missed had we stayed in a hotel. We are used to much more privacy and attention to detail when staying at a B&B. This was really just renting a room in someone's home. In... More

The two biggest stars of your visit will be Bob and Joan. Take a little time to get to know them and you'll find two uncommonly worldly folks. Warm, friendly and excellent hosts. I've never met nicer people and I greatly enjoyed swapping stories with them. The third star is Bob's breakfasts. When he asks you what you'd like... let... More

Sure the log house is stunning...the wild turkeys and deer coming up to the porch to feed is charming....the breakfasts are like a warm hug...and .the peace and serenity feeds the soul...But the REAL reason you have to go are the hosts! Bob and Joanie are unique and wonderful! Joanie was born and raised on the Island. They are both... More

My husband planned a surprise weekend trip for me and asked my sister and brother-in-law to join us.What a wonderful surprise it was! I am not sure what part of the weekend was the best--exploring Beaver Island or visiting with Bob and Joan, the owners of the B&B called, Shanoule. Bob and Joan are definitely doing in this life what... More
