Great Inn, great food (breakfast & dinner), great people,great time. Nice view of the bay. The humming birds - a must see. You must plan your own lunch, there is nothing really close yet (General Store aiming to reopen 2017). With car - nice visit at end of Island at Mississagi lighthouse, close to provincial park Misery Bay by car... More

Delightful oasis at the end of the road. Wonderful people, comfortable digs and good food. People were coming to dine from Gore Bay so I recommend calling ahead if you are looking for a good meal. Also, it's the only place to eat!

We had the pleasure of staying at Meldrum Bay Inn for 2 nights (next time it will be longer!). The bay is gorgeous and the town is nothing but peaceful and beautiful. The lighthouse nearby has remarkable sunsets. But more important was the hospitality. From the moment we stepped into the Inn, we were greeted by Shirin's warmth and her... More

It was our first visit to the Manitoulin, and we had four days to experience the island. We could not have had a better experience than our stay in Meldrum Bay Inn. Shirin, our hostess, gave us great information so that we could make the most of our time on the island. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived,... More

My husband and I travelled to Manitoulin Island and had lunch at the Meldrum Inn and Restaurant. The service was excellent, with the waitress checking in on us to make sure we were good. The food was delicious, very good portions and hot. Would definitely recommend and come back.

I can tell you I was heart broken to leave this place. This is it. You have to experience it your self . The experience with the Inn was amazing. The hosts are exceptional. The rooms, the feeling of home faraway from your home is hiding in every corner. Food - just perfect. The hummingbird - all day long in... More

My wife and I and adult son had dinner at the Meldrum Bay Inn and we received great service from Sharon and our server Kevin. I am in a wheelchair but the restaurant was still accessible for me through the back. All things considered, we would recommend the Meldrum Bay Inn to others.

This is an older inn but it is clean. Staff are pleasant and atmosphere is very relaxing. Food was excellent and service was excellent. I had fresh whitefish that had been caught locally that day-can't beat it! Shirrin is a wonderful hostess, I would stay here again.

Serenity found! The stillness settled into my bones as I sat on the front porch at Meldrum Bay Inn. The sun starting to peak from the horizon cast its light gently onto the endless slender landscape. I can't remember when I felt like the young child I left so long ago. Rediscovered was the peace of waking to quiet and... More
