Auberge Inn Hostel

My husband and I were on Manitoulin Island house hunting. We stayed at the Auberge Inn and it was perfect. Truly a home away from home experience. We were given lots of information about the Island and the hosts couldn't have been more accomodating. Our stay was relatively short, but didn't lack in experience. It was great to be able to take our morning coffee and head down to the beach for a walk before we left.

Room Tip: We stayed in the private room and it was cozy and quiet.

Auberge Inn is a wonderful place to stay on Manitoulin Island. There are not a lot of options for budget accommodations on the island, and the Inn hits all the right notes. Yes, it is a tad more expensive that most hostels, but when you consider what you get for $39, you really can't go wrong - a beautiful house that turns 100 years old next year, a super comfortable and clean bed, a maximum of five roommates, a lovely breakfast to start your day, full use of the kitchen, and just a minute walk to the beach for sunset walks. And a very cute resident kitty (who lives outside).

The owners, Nathalie and Alain, are lovely people. They made sure to include us guests in their Thanksgiving dinner - a welcome surprise! They both gave me tons of tips on where to cycle and hike, and I had an absolutely wonderful vacation.

Go visit - you won't regret it :)

The Auberge Inn is a very comfortable little cosy hostel on the island of Manitoulin. It is has a very familiar feeling to it and the hosts are very personal and friendly. The price is fair and the service is excellent. The surroundings are also very good. An inspiring nature with many trails, hiking, riding, canoeing activities. I warmly recommend this hostel!

After driving many hours from Algonquin Park we were warmly welcomed by our hosts who gave us tea and informaton on local restaurants. Our room was pleasant and we were only a block away from a beautiful sandy beach perfect for swimming and kayaking.

The kayak rental was a bit expensive but our host brought the kayak to the water and helped us in.

It was a very nice Canadian experience complete with bonfire.

Alain and Nathalie are amazing hosts at their comfortable, warm, inviting, clean and very functional hostel/B. and B. It was the perfect place to both begin our time on the island and to stay the morning before heading home on the early ferry from South Bay. We stayed in the two different private rooms as we were there on two separate evenings. Both beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was yummy and had many gluten free options. I loved the hostel part as we had the opportunity to meet different travellers and share wine/treats and stories. The Auberge is located just up the road from the beach, the Fish and Chips stand and around the corner from a lovely, upscale restaurant and the gas station where Sandy welded our rusting tailpipe for $40.00. The hosts at the Auberge and generous, knowledgeable, environmentally friendly and they care about the Island and their guests. We are hoping to return next summer.

Room Tip: We preferred the private room facing the backyard.

Truly a hidden gem. Natalie and Alain are gracious hosts. Their infectious enthusiasm and general positive attitude are reflected in the support they have from their community. I haven't slept in a bunk bed since i was a kid! I was pleasantly surprised, the bed was comfortable and the rooms were clean and welcoming. I slept like a baby and ate like a king. Whether it was raining or the sun was shinning i was never board. Truly a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed our visit SO much, we stayed an extra night! Nathalie and Alain put so much effort in to making us feel at home (and looked after)- suggesting wonderful outings on the island that let us enjoy great hiking and sightseeing opportunities; recommending galleries that support local artisans and giving us some great options for fantastic food. It was also amazing to stay in a place where the home is cleaned with earth-friendly products instead of harmful chemicals. We'll be back!
