With very few places open during the winter months for accommodation on Manitoulin it was great to find the buckhorn is open year round. Not only was it a convenient place to stay over the holidays while visiting friends, it was clean, warm and inviting. The hosts Ameal and Cathy were very friendly, the rooms were warm and clean. They also have a very wide selection of movies that are free to watch and free coffee every morning. The free wi-fi access was great too as I was able to communicate with my family over the holidays. Will definitely be staying there again next year :)

Stayed at The BuckHorn Motel In 2012 For few more days,for 4th time.Ameal & Cathy were great hosts once again with us two Seniors.We stayed there in April 2012,before summer time
We walked with Ameal and Cathy,through their new tree's maze,behind the motel and new camping trailer area Ameal has been clearing out.It was a great walk for us both,getting in some
much needed fresh air.The tree maze Ameal was built for his motel guests and children,for bit of some excitment and fun for all.
Check out the evening,seen numerous rabbits,running around in bk of motel,or in front of motel
in early mornings,even catch a few deers also in the bk of motel,.bk large green grass yard.
Great place to be sitting outside ones motel room,into late evening night time,holding your favorite cold spirit and or favorite spirit drink,this is best place to be at night,seeing late night sky filled-up with total STARS ,with big and small dippers,great for Sky-Star-Watchers to be at
night.Very few cars travelling by,hear and listen to the rare quietness of entire wilderness all around you as you are sitting there.
Ameal and Cathy,are great Hosts,they always exceeded our both expectations,stopping 4 times and staying at their BuckHorn Motel,in SouthBay Mouth.And for a most reasonalbe cost and price.We continued to touring the area of SouthBay Mouth during our 2-3 days stay.
In Fall time ,be safe while driving Deer can pop out in front of you any time,the deer walk all around in South Bay Mouth,Community,you can get some great camera photo's of deer.
Cathy makes awesome,home-baked and home-made muffins with hot-coffee java cup for morning time for her guests and visitors staying at the motel,before they leave.
We do recommend to all visitors and guests,summer or winter times,stop in and stay at BuckHorn Motel.Tell Ameal & Cathy ,that Marian & Gerry,suggested and recommended their Motel for you to staying at,you will not be disapointeded,by good Hosts.
We always had good time staying at motel,during Summer-Time and or in Fall-Time,We met many other great guests and vistors,staying at BuckHorn Motel during our stays there,who were
staying and travelling through and carrying onward with their trips.Or taking the Ferry at SouthBay Mouth,on Manitoulin Island.

Buckhorn Motel is a modest place, nothing extravagant, but exactly what one can expect at Manitoulin Island. Rooms are decent size, extremely clean, with nice bathroom. Hosts Ameal and Cathy are very nice and friendly, coffee and muffins in the mornig are nice begging of the day. For the price we got it is extremely good value.

We stayed at the Buckhorn Motel on Canada Day after a tour of Manitoulin on our Motorcycles. What a lovely little place! Although not fancy, our room was very reasonable and impecably clean. Our room had new laminate floors. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were plush! The line-dried linens and towels were fresh and inviting. Ameal and Cathy were kind and personable hosts and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. We were offered towels to wipe down our bikes, wood for our kickstands, ice, and delightful homemade muffins with hot coffee in the morning. We will certainly return to Buckhorn in the future. Enjoy!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night while touring the island. I really didn't expect much from a roadside motel, but Ameal and Cathy far exceeded my expectations. The room we had was small but VERY clean. I swear I couldn't find a single speck of dirt anywhere! Both of our hosts were beyond helpful and so friendly. Anything this hotel lacks in amenities, they certainly make up for in service. We will definitely be back!
