Loved this place! Cottage was a minute walk to the beach with comfortable Adirondack chairs for our use. Beach was wonderful with nice, soft sand and long stretches to walk along. Would love to visit in the warmer weather to swim in the crystal clear water. We loved the cottage. It had absolutely everything we needed and more. Lots of space to spread out and very cozy and comfortable with the fireplace. The kitchen was stocked with everything we required. We definitely got the R and R we were looking for! Our hosts were wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing a bottle of wine with them one evening.
My family stayed here for thanksgiving weekend and we had such an unreal time!
The home and property are stunning - it's a slice of paradise with good surf and beautiful views. Petra and Bill are lovely hosts who have thought of everything to make your stay warm and welcome!
Great locations within a reasonable drive to Mindemoya and Gore Bay. The cottage was very clean and well-equipped. Petra and Bill came by to make sure we were settling in, with their beautiful dog, Skipper. We admired Petra's photographs and paintings. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Perfect place for a quiet get away. Lovely hosts, beautiful cottage on a beautiful island. Great spot to catch up on reading and enjoy the view.
Bill and Petra, great hosts,... we were so lucky to share their dream creation.
Shopping for all you will need in Mindemoya, and farmer's markets in nearby towns. Buy the 2 local papers as you arrive in Little Current so you can follow all the activities all over the island during your stay. Go to South Baymouth to watch the ferry arrive, but first have early lunch at the 'Garden café' in Tehkummah. Excellent fish and chips in Providence Bay ... kids playground on the beach.
...Set your watch on '' ISLAND-TIME'' as soon as you arrive at the ''Beach-house''
and let it work it's magic.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach House at Square Bay; well designed, great condition and very comfortable for our three generation family of six. It was well furnished and appointed - our hosts, Petra & Bill unobtrusively looked after all of our needs. The Beach House is smartly set back about 100 yards, with a short stroll through the sand to the beach. The private beach was perfect for our 5 year old grand children. Square Bay is located within easy driving distance to Manitoulin sights, activities and shopping. This cottage met all of our checklist criteria. We'll definitely visit again.
Honestly the nicest vacation rental you could hope for! No expense was spared in the building of this family beach house. High-end finishes and appliances make your stay like a home away from home. Best part: no TV, no WiFi and very limited cellular signal. Hard to get used to, but allows you to disconnect and enjoy nature. Don't be fooled by the bugs when you arrive, as they hang out at the back of the cottage. The front veranda faces the water and has full sun all day, so no bugs to speak of! The fire pit is between the cottage and the private beach. Kayaks are available from the hosts next door. Their dog, Skipper, is super friendly and will keep the kids entertained for hours. The bay is quiet and beautiful. A perfect vacation spot!
