We wanted to spend a quiet week on Manitoulin Island and we found the right place. Green Bay Lodge was perfect from the start. Even my initial emails with Klaus were great.
The lodge is situated in a central spot that makes it easy to visit all parts of the island and it's very close to the cup and saucer trail. We stayed the entire week and met lots of great people while we were staying there. We stayed in the rooms below the house which are very cosy and feel like a home immediately. They are full of home made wooden shelves and loaded with books and cottage furniture. There is a full kitchen and there is lots of space in each of the rooms. I think the bed in the room we stayed in was actually more comfortable than our own bed. At night it is pitch black and silent, it's impossible to not get a good nights sleep here. After leaving the lodge we felt very well rested.
The owners, Klaus and Karen are amazing people; so warm and friendly, in the mornings they really bring everyone together while serving breakfast, and the food was fantastic too. If you want advice on where to go and what to see Klaus will bring you a map and go through the entire island with you, you will always feel looked after. We also took out the boat and Klaus came out to show us how to use it and then left us to explore Lake Manitou.
There were a couple of days were we never left the lodge. You can easily go for a swim or go and sit in front of the little pond which is full of little fish and just relax. If you are trying to get away from the noise and hustle of a big city we can't recommend this place enough. You will come back well rested and restored.
