This is by far the best B&B I've stayed in. This is really a gem! Your hosts, Charlene and Gord, make you immediately feel home and do their best to make your stay unforgettable. All guest rooms are so lovely decorated and very clean. The room was made up every day, and even the towels were changed daily. Regarding the rooms, my personal favourites are the Ships and the Music Room. Especially the Music Room is so spacious, quiet and bright, and offers a lot of privacy. The bed is huge and really comfortable, and the lake and garden view from the private balcony is awesome. We also enjoyed Charlene's delicious homecooked breakfast and very helpful advice on what to see and where to go on Manitoulin Island. She even had a little map for us where she highlighted all the interesting places, and also gave us an idea of how long it would take us. Charlene and Gord know a lot about the island's history and we had really interesting conversations. Sitting together with them at breakfast or in the evening was not like spending time with a host, but with friends!
We also liked the location of this B&B, as it is quite easy to find and a short drive to the ferry. There's plenty to do and see in the area, or you can use the B&Bs own kayaks, canoe or paddle boat. Gord will be happy to take you out on the lake! If you just want to enjoy the lake view from inside the house, watch the hummingbirds, or just relax and read a book, you can use the quiet sitting room and enjoy a cup of tea. Staying at the Willow Shores was a real treat for us, and we will definitely come back.
