My husband and I discovered Island View on a June Sunday drive and thought we should try it so we booked a weekend stay in July. From the moment we stepped into Mark and Cathy's home, we felt welcomed. Mark and Cathy are genuinely nice, nice people. We stayed in two different rooms during both stays and they were both...

She asked if we had any preferences or needs and then prepared 2 fantastic breakfasts suited to my son's need for racing. Definitely recommend and cant wait to go back. Susan and...

Mark and Cathy were wonderful hosts. Cathy suggested a restaurant in town (Wiarton) for dinner and made us reservations. It was called the Green Door cafe - great food! The house has a lovely view of the bay and the rooms were spotless and everything we needed was at hand. The breakfast was to die for - all homemade and...

A beautiful country setting with a beautiful view of Colpoys Bay, great amenities and extremely clean rooms. The entire property seems to be manicured to a tee. Mark and Cathy are a very accommodating couple, making sure that we were well taken care of without being overbearing. The breakfasts are to die for served with fresh, healthy and tasty ingredients....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Island View B&B is located 6kms east of the Town of Wiarton on Grey County Road 1. It overlooks Colpoys Bay and is across the road from Bruce's Caves Conservation Area. The Conservation Area has great hiking trails and is open year round, there is no admittance charge. We offer a drop off service to hikers subject to availability. There is a rough trail from the B&B down the escarpment to the bay and a walk / bike around the block is 4km. Island View B&B was originally a single family home built to R2000 standards and is heated / cooled by geothermal. We added a "granny flat" for Cathy's parents in 2006 and an additional two car garage. Mark gained a "play" area! The Bed and Breakfast is in the original house and has King and Queen bed rooms each with en suite bathrooms and one room with two double beds with a private bathroom across the hall. Each room has a large window, bar fridge, coffee table and two chairs. Most guests relax in either the sunroom or the living room. Our oldest son Steve is an accomplished artist (even if we say so ourselves!) Specializing in wildlife. His medium is acrylic on canvas and we display his original work here. We are partially solar powered. We now offer Electric Vehicle charging- NEMA 14-50 receptacle. We really enjoy the people that come to stay with us....
