I stayed at this B&B (now under new ownership, called "The Wandering Pheasant") on Victoria Day weekend 2010, with four friends, and we all had a fantastic experience.
Owner Sandra and her staff are working hard to give the front facade of the hundred-year-old main building a facelift, with a new porch for guests to relax on, but many improvements have already been finished, such as the screened in hot tub under a gazebo (open at all hours) and another gazebo with patio furniture for enjoying time outside. My friends & I stayed in one of the cabins at the back of the property, which were very clean and comfortable, with all the amenities available in a full-service hotel, plus a private screened porch with hammock. The breakfasts we were served on the two mornings we stayed over were excellent, a zuchinni quiche on the first day and buttermilk pancakes with banana compote on the second. Sandra accomodates vegetarians too, if you ask. The property is located close to a beach as well as the Fish Point nature reserve, and would be an accessible spot for a young family with children. A free wine tour is included in the price of the room as well, at Pelee Island Winery, and Sandra is extremely helpful with luggage and people transfers to and from the ferry if you don't bring a car to the island. Awesome weekend all around - I would definitely go back again!
