I was travelling with my cousin and elderly aunt. We wanted a place to stay for two nights with no stairs for my aunt to climb and we wanted to be close to the ferry. We were touring the island each day and didn't need more than a room to sleep in and breakfast each day. We felt very lucky to have found the Southbay Guesthouse. This small, quiet and friendly family run B&B satisfied our first two criteria and much more. Our hosts went out of their way to make sure that all of our needs and wants were attended to. We were located in one of the cottage rooms that accommodated three people (one double bed and a single cot, which proved to be very comfortable). The rooms were clean and comfortable for sleeping. There was ample seating outside in the gazebo and in various other locations on the grounds. Each morning, a delightfully presented and satisfying continental breakfast was served in the common dining area at a time that was convenient for the individual guests. There were several restaurants located nearby for lunch and dinner. There are many interesting and beautiful places to visit on Manitoulin and we enjoyed touring each day. The hosts of the Guesthouse also operate a gallery/giftshop which displays and sells a variety of lovely and interesting handmade items. The atmosphere was welcoming, peaceful and unhurried. We extended our stay for an extra day and wished that we could have stayed longer.
