We checked into customs at Meldrum Bay....heard about the Inn and the famous pies. This place (and the community) exceeded our expectations. Shirin and Bob were outstanding hosts and obviously love what they do. The place was charming and the food outstanding; we had fresh lake trout, white fish and of course the pie. You will not be disappointed.

Meldrum Bay Inn, truly an amazing place with amazing food and hosts, Bob and Shirin. I have stayed twice now and both times were more than great. I was there on business and felt and was treated like I was at home.

Bob and Shirin have been our wonderful hosts at the Inn for about six or seven years now, and we go back each year to enjoy the wonderful scenery and quiet that you will find here. The Inn is at the end of the road on the farthest western end of Manitoulin Island, but the drive is delightful and a... More

My wife and I and another couple booked in advance (two rooms plus dinner) and the back and forth communication via email and phone was prompt and friendly. Upon arrival, after driving through pounding rain and high winds, we found that the power was out, but Bob had fired up the generators. Shirin greeted us like old friends, even though... More

Absolutely amazing food! Beautiful view! Welcoming host and hostess! I have eaten at 5-start restaurants around the globe and the food at Manitoulin Inn gives those restuarants a run for their money! Note: Restaurant opens at 5 pm for dinner.

The Inn was recommended by another hotel when we were touring the island. So glad we visited there. The inn is historic, the proprietors so welcoming and genuinely enjoy hosting their guests. The food was amazing, served on the verandah overlooking the yard or the water. If you have the opportunity, stay over or just go for lunch. Shirin will... More

Thank you for a lovely dinner experience last night! The trout and the key lime pie were to die for. It was so lovely to meet you. The view from our table was spectacular. I will gladly drive back from Toronto for a repeat experience!

We were two couples who arrived near the end of dinner service after a long day traveling by motorcycle from Kitchener. We were greeted warmly and made to feel at home right away. Everything was immaculate especially the hospitality of Shirin and her daughter. After a delicious meal were retired to the fire pit to enjoy the other guests company... More
