From the moment we arrived, till the next day we departed, Amile and Cathy were amazing hosts and hostesses. The rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and Emil even put on a camp fire for us for the evening. His wife, Cathy went out of her way and baked us delicious blueberry muffins and coffee for the road. We were... More

The owners, Ameal & Cathy, make everyone feel welcome and at home. Great hosts who go above and beyond the expectations of a quiet motel. Prior to our trip, I visited the Buckhorn. They were very knowledgeable and helpful about everything on the Island. Our first Spyder Ryde tour of Manitoulin was nicely completed with Emeal putting on a camp-fire... More

We rode our motorbikes to Manitoulin Island at the end of August 2013. It was our intent to spend three days at The Buckhorn in order to tour the island. Unfortunately the weather did not co-operate with our plans. We arrived to a dramatic electrical storm that lasted well overnight and threatened for the next several days. Regrettably we had... More

It is a quiet location in the woods within walking distance of the Gallery on the Lake, a beautiful display of artist's work. The dining room view of the lake and the meals offered there were great. Use of canoes, paddle boats and other water craft was available. There was a common room where games could be played, a library... More

What a great time we had staying here. Ameal and Cathy are tremendous hosts and can't do enough to make your stay pleasant. The rooms were clean, it was very quiet (which is nice) and the bed was extremely comfortable. If you get Ameal talking about his previous career in the music industry, the stories fly fast and furious -... More

I went camping with my boyfriend and we went searching for firewood. Stumbled upon this place and the owner was such a friendly guy. That didn't stop him to map us out an entire pathway to view different sites of the island.

I was part of a motorcycle group out to Manitoulin and Buckhorn was a gracious host of our group. The owners Ameal & Cathy are very friendly and eager to please. The rooms were clean and neat and suited what we were looking for. There is a mini convenience store for any necessities and there are restaurants close by. Ameal... More
