The cave was fascinating and worth the hike if you were staying at the resort, but not worth the drive and small fee to just do the cave hike. It's a very small cave and took 10 minutes to walk there and back. We were on a hiking vacation and visited many amazing sites across Manitoulin Island and Bruce Peninsula.... More

Our Cave Visits are never advertised as a “hiking experience“. Looking back at over 40 years of building our resort, I am most proud of the cleanup we did at the cave to show the natural beauty of the limestone formation. To provide the cave visits to the public is meant for the visitors enjoyment. So, is the cave “horrible“... More

What a perfect location for an anniversary gettaway! The property, waterfront view, rooms and dining were fantastic and the host (Angela) was fantastic!! This resort would have been a 5-star rating if the spa and pool were operational. Despite this, we had a wonderful stay.

We really enjoyed this very quiet resort with magnificent views from the hotel balcony, great food and hot wood fired sauna after long day on the bike. We came here as a base for 3 days of road cycling and we were not disappointed.

Our family of four stayed here for a night, expecting a luxury resort. We were very misled when we found out the pool was out of commission. There was little for our yOung children to do. No swimming or beach at resort. Food was good, but not much for children. Walking trails and cave were interesting. I do not recommend... More

Our goal is to give each and every one of our guests a memorable stay at our resort. We started our resort in 1975 and I can honestly say that our resort has never looked more beautiful and updated, than in the last couple of years. This was accomplished with a lot of investments and extremely hard work. Our guestbook... More

This hotel is an absolute gem; i have never stayed anywhere like it. Carmen and her mum make you feel very welcome and very special, and whilst you are eating your meals, you get the personal visitor guide to Manitoulin Island, when all the sights and attractions of the island are made known to you.

This was my third year staying at this resort, and I keep coming back for a reason. The location is in the middle of Manitoulin Island, making it a perfect base of operations for seeing the whole island over the course of several days. The location is also beautiful. The resort is located at the top of a limestone/dolostone bluff... More

The hydro-jets in the spa are wonderful, especially the Spanish waterfall. The owners are German, everything clean and well organized. The meals are good but not exceptional. As a spa, I would have expected massages and pampering to be available. Also nudity in the sauna (we had to buy an expensive bathing suit) and in the massage pools is not... More
