We stayed with Char and Gord for 2 nites in Aug 2016. Couldn't have been nicer people, they invited us for dinner with their family. Beautiful property, house was gorgeous and the Music Room wonderful. Swimming was lovely in the clear waters. We just had the best time with them. Thanks!!

Willow Shores is one of the best places to stay on Manitoulin Island. The hosts, Gord and Charlene, are incredible hosts - so warm and welcoming - and are arguably the best part of the B&B. The breakfasts Charlene makes are incredible, and there are always muffins out to take as an on-the-go snack. I've stayed at the B&B twice... More

We just stayed one night since we were on a road trip back to Vancouver, but we so wished it could have been longer. This is a very beautiful home with lovely grounds extending to the bay, but it is the hosts that make the place special. Charlene and Gord are very genuine, warm and hospitable people; they make you... More

I consider we were lucky to pick this B&B and stayed there for 3 nights last week. Charlene and Gord were truly amazing hosts. We walked in as a host and guest and walked out with a great friendship! Charlene and Gord were so genuine that you would want to just stay and chatted with them. We learned the history... More

We felt comfortable and at home the moment we arrived. Charlene and Gord are the perfect hosts. Their home is beautiful and clean, and the grounds around the house are beautifully kept. We woke up to the smell of coffee, fresh baked goods and breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Great rooms. Real good breakfast and very nice people. Views are worth a visit. Treat you like family. Plan to stay longer than an over-nighter. You'll be glad you did. (We didn't but will be back). Not only s great place to stay but Charlene (the owner) gave us details of what to see and do. A fantastic host.

We had a wonderful stay! We had a beautiful room with private bathroom, a delicious breakfast, perfect location, and a great hostess! Charlene drew us a map of all the best places to see on the island, and she was right! She even gave us snacks at night!

Charlene and Gord made us feel very welcome and we had a fantastic time there. Lots there to do from canoe, kayaks, swimming, camp fires, and games. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone going to manitoulin island.

This was our first time staying at the Willow Shores B&B, but definitely not our last. The view over the bay, the delicious breakfast, homebaked goods, well kept grounds, gorgeous rooms...but most of all, the hosts welcoming and caring way of welcoming every guest like a friend and making you feel right at home!

Must be the best and reasonably priced B and B on the island. Charlene and Gord are wonderful hosts. Their lovely home on the lake is clean and relaxing. The views, the gardens and the waterfront make for a lovely experience. Charlene is a great cook and will accommodate diet restrictions. The hosts are very knowledgable about the island and... More
