Such a lovely spot!! The host is a lovely lady who looks after the guests in a very helpful and friendly way.. The rooms are so cosy & fresh and clean.. The beds are soft. There is a TV, fireplace, free wifi, coffee maker, fridge, lots of white towels.. We'll definitely go back!

We stayed here for 4 days in July, 2015 and we loved this little place. The owner was fantastic and did everything she could to accommodate our stay. I loved the wicker rocking chairs. I would sit and read while having tea and breakfast. Location was great and the Inn was decorated with everything we needed.

If I were to stay at one place with one group of people it would be here. This family run place is a lovely place to stay. It is open year round with the summer being busiest but the fall is a lovely time to go. It was newly renovated with a fireplace in the room. The linens are nice... More

We stayed here one night while enroute to the ferry to Tobermory. It was great for one night. Clean. Handy fridge and microwave. Fireplace. Looks like they have hot water heat so I am sure in winter it's also cozy. Small kitchen-ware cutlery etc. for breakfast or a dinner snack. It's good value.

We enjoyed My Friends Inn very much. Stephen and Michelle are very hospitable and the rooms are lovely and very clean. When we made our reservation for two rooms, I assumed they would be the same. They are actually quite different so when making your reservation, I highly recommend Room #4 with the king size bed. The town of Manitowaning... More

I was here to relive childhood memories and one of my stops was to be the museum here in town. When checking the open hrs, found out that it was not... More

My husband and I went up to Manitoulin Island for a few nights. We planned to stay here only for the first night and then see what else was available in various parts of the island. However, we loved the atmosphere at My Friends Inn and the excellent service of the owners so much that we asked if we could... More

We had the pleasure of staying here both the first and last night of a recent motorcycle trip. The owners Michelle and Steve were so helpful when we booked, both making our reservations, suggesting places to stay as we travelled on our trip, and suggesting local restaurants. The Inn is spotless, rooms are well equipped with frig, tassimo, microwave, and... More

Stopped here for one night. Room was perfect for our stop over. We stayed in room #3. Room had two doubles. One of the beds was really very soft/uncomfortable but the other bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the morning! Only complaint is that the water temperature kept changing from very hot to very cold... More
