What more could you want from a b and b than a great room, comfortable bed and fantastic breakfast? All are provided at the Island View plus exceptional hosts who literally take you into their home. The location is about a five minute walk from the Bruce Trail which is one of the premier hiking paths in the world. Well... More

We were so happy to find out about the Island View B&B through TripAdvisor. Our stay here was so much more enjoyable than the motels we've experienced in Tobermory. Mark and Cathy were the most gracious hosts, the breakfast they served was incredible. We look forward to returning again next year for the Manitoulin Passage Ride.

The food was delicious with wonderful presentation. The tranquil setting, the spectacular views, the charming town of Wiarton, and the close proximity to the Bruce Trail made our stay so enjoyable.

We've stayed with Mark and Cathy three times now, and each time our experience was excellent from start to finish. The rooms are comfortable, the views are incredible overlooking the bay, and breakfast on the deck is a great way to start your day. Cathy prepares a fabulous breakfast of healthy, locally sourced, organic when possible, feast. Breakfast starts with... More

We stayed at Island View for two nights and had a wonderful time. The hosts Cathy and Mark were great people. They make you feel at home. The room was clean. So was the whole property. The view from the living room was excellent. You could see the beautiful water of Georgian Bay. The breakfast was freshly cooked every morning.... More

My coworker and I stayed here this past weekend while attending a work event in the area. We were not expecting just how wonderful this place would be.

Breakfast is tasty, nutritious, inventive and is presented in such a beautiful manner. They gave... More

Mark and Cathy were awesome hosts, fabulous cooks and the accommodations were stellar! The rooms were nice and we had our own private bathroom with a mini fridge with free drinks. The breakfast was VERY good and filling. They have really good quality paintings around the house and a short walk away from Bruces' caves. Oh, and ask them about... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Island View and had an amazing time. Cathy and Mark are friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the area. The breakfasts are incredible, and the B&B is a great home base for hiking, restaurants, and drives to nearby beaches. Their pets are lovely as well.

We have stayed in many B&B's over the years, Cathy and Mark's Island View B&B is one of the best. Their warmth and hospitality was very welcoming along with superb breakfasts. The quiet location is close to the Bruce Trail, caves, art studios and good restaurants. Island View B&B is well worth the stay. We would stay there again.
