I just returned home from my first Manitoulin Island visit. I stayed at My Friends Inn for 5 days. Maureen, Bob, and Michelle certainly made me feel at home and were always helpful. They have done a really great job with renovating this inn and have added lots of personal touches that were appreciated. I enjoyed being able to sit... More

My wife and I (seniors) recently spent 3 nights at this small but beautiful motel. We came by motorcycle and were instantly welcomed by the owner. During our stay we were treated like royalty even to the point of providing rags and a hose to wash the motorcycle after our trip, as well as road maps of the island. While... More

Visiting Manitowaning is like stepping back in time to a simpler pace of life, and staying at "My Friend's Inn" completes the experience. It was so relaxing sitting out in front of our room reading in the sun in our rocking chairs, and getting a friendly visit from Mini Cooper the cat, who greets all the guests. We sipped our... More

A warm welcome. The room is comfortable and clean with all you need at a reasonable price. We couldn't find fault with the motel. The price is very reasonable. If you want à good dinner ,Try the restaurant down the road: reasonable princes for freshly cooked local fish.

Charming owners and charming cat! Not so much an inn as a very nicely renovated motel, a row of eight rooms. The Inn comes complete with a charming cat who loves belly rubs. The rooms are well equipped and nicely appointed with coffee maker, microwave and some basic dishes. The floors are a nice hardwood and the in was clean... More

Room very clean and equipped with fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Owners cheerful, friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do on the island. We enjoyed Sunday brunch with local people at the Manitowaning Golf Club very much. (Hotel guests were allowed a 10 percent discount). We found the Centennial Museum at Shaguiandah really interesting. Manitoulin scenery is wonderful, and... More
