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

We stayed with Charlene and Gord for one night during our honeymoon. As soon as we got there, we wished we were staying for longer! The home is beautiful and so well kept, yet we felt welcome to use each room and part of the property like it was our own. From full use of the kitchen, to additional snacks... More

Willow Shores was fantastic. Comfortable and welcoming. The breakfasts were very tasty and personal. The first morning we were the only group there so Charlene allowed the child traveling with us to chose our breakfast. The house was neat as a pin and extremely clean. We attempted to have a fire the second night but, couldn't get it started due... More

Hosts Charlene and Gord were amazing in their warmness and welcoming nature. My wife and I arrived early evening and were invited to join in for dinner on the spot - a very welcome surprise!. Conversations were great and ranged all over the place. Advice on places to see and eat were spot on. The kitchen and BBQ were available... More
