We were there for one night on our way to Tobermory. We had everything we needed after a long day or hiking and exploring. The owners were amazing and so very friendly and helped us when the hair dryer tripped the power in our room. Thank you Tammy and family for making us comfortable. I have recommended you to friends.

We booked a room with a queen bed and a futon for our family of 2 adults & 2 teens (youngest slept on her inflatable mattress on the floor). We booked quite late, so I think we were likely getting one of the last available rooms as it was really quite small. However, it was spotless and very quiet. The... More

Just stayed 2 nights so we could visit some relatives in the area and weren't sure what to expect. The location changed hands between our booking and stay. The new owners are friendly and hands on. They were always close by for anything you needed all day and well it seemed into the night. Room 208 was basic but comfortable... More

We had a great stay! The new owners are very friendly and helpful! Thank you! The rooms were simple, the property is beautiful. So nice to have access to a lake and a pool. We had a view of the pool and the lake...I recommend a room on the second floor.

We went for 3 night, and rented the cottage 228 and my friends rented an extra room. Our idea was to use it just to sleep because we were planing to visit Tobermory and Flowerpot island. The place was wonderful. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We ended spending one whole day there and enjoyed the facilites every evening.... More

The room we had was a very basic room, but everything was good. Maybe for some people the bed would be hard but for me it was just fine. The garden and suroundings are absolutly amazing! If you wan't a room with a beautifull garden and with view on the lake, I absolutly recommend this place! And the staff and... More

I traveled with parents for a last-minute 2-day trip to Tobermory, need a place to sleep as camping is really not our thing. We have simple requirements - no-frill, wifi, clean, convenience, room to sleep 3. Booked the night before through the motel's website, no issue with immediate confirmation email. Pro: - For $100+tax a night, the room we were... More

Enjoyed a 2 day stay for family wedding and had a pleasant time at this location. Under new management a few changes were going on but nothing to inhibit our stay. Pleasant check in experience, fast and easy to understand the layout of grounds (4 acres with rec centre etc). Our room overlooked Colpoy's Bay and had a great sunset... More

New owners have taken over the place from Evan and Dave. The rooms are outdated and not very clean as in after taking a soak in the jetted tub my wife wanted to drain the water from the tub and the plug came out and wow 6 inches of black hair attached to the drain.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. With the switch in ownership there were many issues with Expedia and booking.com, many people had reservations and NO room. I worked very hard to get you a nice room (which was just renovation a couple years ago) and did not charge you any cancellation fee, for canceling at the last... More
