“Excellent cottage for family vacation”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Excellent cottage and location on Manitoulin island. Fully equipped for family with young children.

Kids loved feeding the friendly chipmunks right out of thier hands.

Beach is beatiful, but the water was cold this year due to the poor weather.

River behind cottage comes compete with jumping fish and a beaver family that makes an appearance every night.

Breeding ground for monarch butterflies which was educational for the kids.

We visited bridal veil falls, kagawog, kicking mule ranch and fished all three inland lakes with motor boat rental.

Only regret was that we didn't plan a providence bay fishing charter...

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house was absolutely perfect for our group of family and friends - clean, roomy, welcoming and child-friendly. Even when the weather went ugly, we played games, cooked happily in the big kitchen, and lounged comfortably indoors. Thank-you from all of us, Dean. This place is a gem, and we are hoping very hard to get the same week in August in 2015!

“Great family getaway”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This cottage has all you need and enough those things you didn't think you would need - fully equipment kitichen, living room, dining room and four bedrooms. Cottage is only a few steps to the boardwalk and the wonderful beaches of Provindence Bay. Easy travel around the Island to visit other sites Misery Bay, Carter's Bay, Bridal Veil Falls, Kagawong and Cup and Saucer Trail.

You will quickly develop a ritual of coffee on the front porch swing in the morning and at night relaxing around the fire with cocktails and making smores and spider weniees for the little ones.

The owners take such great care of this poperty. We had everything we needed to make our week a great relaxing northern holiday.

“Very comfortable large home-away-from-home”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2012

A short walk to to the beautiful beach and visitor centre, or ride your bike further afield to explore the marina or other beaches. Enjoy beautiful sunsets, feed the friendly chipmunks, capture pics of the hummingbirds and get out by the campfire by dusk to watch the bats.
This house has all you need; fully equipt kitchen, living room, dining room, master bedroom is superb with windows on all sides to enjoy the views of the lake and take advantage of the breezes coming off the water. House is spotlessly clean. Quickly developed a ritual of coffee on the front porch in the morning and cocktails before dinner :)
Lots to do on the island if you enjoy the outdoors; hiking, fishing, bike riding, swimming, water sports etc. Not much for indoor types; but we weren't looking for indoor activities either so may not be qualified to comment.
Enjoy!

“Nice place, nice manager.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Everything was as advertised. I will likely return. The manager was very attentive. The only caution I can give is be careful on the stairs as there are many.

“Well, appointed with lots of extras”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We really enjoyed our stay which was all too brief. Lots of extras especially if children are part of your party...only a few steps to the boardwalk and the wonderful beaches of Providence Bay.

“All the comforts of home, reasonably priced”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This house has lots of room for groups and is very child friendly. We had quick access to hike on the beach boardwalk, and had the option of bicycles. It is a very quiet community in May.
