A Little About Manitoulin

If you have never experienced Manitoulin Island then you will want to book some time with us - we have people from far off places return here each year. The reason: locals living here will tell you that it is God's Country. If you live in a built up area like Toronto you can well appreciate not having to drive across the Don Valley Parkway to get from place to place. Manitoulin is nothing like that. When you travel across Manitoulin you'll want to have your car windows open so you can experience the fresh air. You'll see nature at work on each side of the road. Be prepared to share the road with people bicycling - we're a favourite for cyclists. Pull over and park your car, throw down a blanket and have a picnic - life here is that simple and serene.
Being an island, you are never far away from water anywhere on Manitoulin. Bring your kayak, or rent one here. Want to just put your feet up and relax? Okay, but people will think you've been living here all your life.
Oh, did we mention? - The climate here on Manitoulin is just wonderful for gardeners. The island is composed of multiple Wood Lily "growing areas" due to the geographical location and surrounding waters.
