Mark & Cathy made every effort toward making our stay comfortable. We had use of a small fridge which was great for our hiking food. Breakfasts were delicious. This family is very health conscious and... More

A golf course is 3 minutes away. The animals were wonderful. Going down the stairs in the am the dog was on the landing.... More

A very warm welcome by Mocha (the dog, with tail wagging) and Mark and Cathy our hosts. Accommodations were excellent, clean, comfortable, magnificent view, close to Bruce Trail Hiking!! Breakfast were excellent, exceeded our expectations and vegetarian requirements. Overall one of our very best B&B experiences. Prices were very reasonable based on the services provided. We will definitely be back.

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....
