Would love to visit in the warmer weather to swim in the crystal clear water. We loved the cottage. It had absolutely everything we needed and more. Lots of...

About the neighborhood
Rural location on beautiful southern shore of Manitoulin Island where the best beaches are. People here go snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and hiking in winter. Hiking is popular in the summer too as is the beach. The beach is the main attraction. You can fish or just relax and sit on the beach. Manitoulin has many other attractions celebrating both the native and non-native cultures from Pow Wows, native artifacts to festivals, dark sky telescope sessions, local produce at farmer's markets and some wonderful restaurants. Manitoulin is one of the premier locations to visit in Ontario. You will need your car to get around. There are no regular buses here. The island has three golf courses, one of which has 18 holes. The closest course is in Mindemoya with nine holes about 20 minutes... more
