My husband and I (along with our car and kayaks) enjoy the 2 hour ferry ride from Sandusky OH that transports not just our luggage but our minds to a different place. The Canadian island of Pelee is a unique and special place to "practice doing nothing". The island is unspoiled by commercialism and has a laid back feeling that is just right for a get away that really lets you feel like you've had a break from your busy life. Biking is a joy on the island because of so few cars and the scenery is great-very safe, too. The Wandering Pheasant Inn provided my husband and I with a soul refreshing experience that we are still relaxed from and we cannot wait to return. Sandra and Rita have done a wonderful job creating a lodge experience that is very rare to find. The care that they take to make the historical home feel welcoming is truely what makes the place feel so special. I loved the no shoe policy and enjoyed walking on clean floors in my bare feet. I also loved the quietness (except the soothing sounds of the "ocean" thru my bedroom window) as the beautiful grounds are rendered a kid/pet free zone. Food was so fresh and beautifully prepared! We LOVE this place and the met Canadians that were so wonderful. Great conversation with lovely people who made us feel like we were family on a vacation together. If you seek a gentle sweet spot to just sit and think about things, this is it. No TV to interfere with sitting down with a good book in the lovely living room. The decor is just right. Not stuffy or pretentious but interesting and cozy. All the bedrooms have a fun theme and contain little thoughtful touches that show the attention to detail Sandra and Rita have given to each room. They are two sweet cousins that work so hard to make everyones stay enjoyable and are both are really special people. I recommend this Inn whole heartedly!
