Description from owner


Experience Manitoulin Island and the beauty of Ontario, Canada's “near north!” Thanks for a great and fully booked 2019 season once again, with many repeat valued guests. We are now taking reservations for 2020, and as we collectively manage the current global health pandemic (COVID-19), keep in mind that Manitoulin and South Baymouth has a low population density, and vacationing with just your own family/friends in our cottage is an option to consider. We are currently closed through to the end of July 2020, in compliance with isolation guidelines for COVID-19 and the health and safety of our guests. We are re-opening August 1st with a vacant week between guests based on health and provincial guidance. August is now fully booked, so we are taking reservations for September. While our past guests can vouch for our high cleaning standards, extra precautions will be taken with our cleaning and disinfecting procedures between our guest stays.. Our cottage is modernly referred to as an "urban cottage" within the village of South Baymouth with urban amenities, but within walking distance of your beach dock, nature trails, forest, and open country. The cottage is a completely renovated home (2011) in the village of South Baymouth on Manitoulin Island, Ontario...a small village where the ferry links visitors to the Bruce Peninsula and Southern Ontario. The village offers small town living (stores, marina, ferry, laundromat, gift shops, restaurants, museum) in a quiet setting right in the village (with extensive nature trails, fire pit in your own backyard, 250' to access private dock on South Bay...(high lake water levels have diminished the shoreline!). Watch the largest passenger ferry on the Great Lakes come and go from your private dock, walk our village's extensive and beautiful nature trails within a short walking distance from your cottage, visit our museum which has a "one room" schoolhouse from the 1800's and a display on the history of our village and area, or tour Manitoulin Island with biking lanes, driving tours, many towns and villages, Native culture, or just relax. Fully equipped home (furniture, appliances, linens, dishes, BBQ, Sat TV, WiFi Internet, games, DVD's, electric heat, large cedar deck with patio furniture, canoe, two kayaks, bicycles)...just bring yourself and your food! Manitoulin Island, the largest fresh water island in the world, also has extensive sightseeing and activities for visitors while displaying that unique atmosphere of no "city life," and lots of lakes, forests, and nature. Complimentary pick up services to and from ferry terminal in South Baymouth for short/weekend stays. 3 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 queen, 2 twins); also 2 pull out couches in living room, fully equipped kitchen, 1 full bath with shower plus 2 pc. bath upstairs. Large deck with patio set for outdoor dining or relaxing. Indoor and outdoor games supplied. Cottage comes with complimentary outdoor games, canoe, kayaks and bicycles. Beach has dock. Weekly rate at $1,100 for up to 5 persons (extra if more); daily and weekend rate per night at $250 for up to 5 persons (extra if more). Spring and Fall rentals at reduced rates. No smoking premises. Multi car parking; room for boat trailer. Standard cottage rental terms and agreement apply. We welcome your enquiries via email or any other required information. Your hosts...John & Anita Greenway

Getting around

We recommend bringing your own vehicle to best get around Manitoulin and visit the site. Lots of different day tour routes via your vehicle. Also, be sure to reserve the ferry in advance (no extra cost to reserve) and it will ensure your ferry trip during the busy summer months when it often has full loads. Manitoulin roads are also excellent for biking (bring your own or we supply bikes at the cottage at no charge).

Interaction with guest

We will meet you at the cottage for introductions and a complete tour of the facilities. Any questions or assistance, we will be glad to provide. We are available during your stay as we live in the property next door. Lots to do in the village and by taking day tours around the Island, or just relaxing on the deck or down at the dock. Remember...when you are on the "Island," you're on "Island Time!!!"
