You can set your own Island agenda, or get in some great fishing, while we do absolutely everything for you - for a day, a weekend or a week. You will feel ‘right at home’ in our experienced hands. We have a recreation hall, a beach, lots of fishing boats (fish cleaning and packaging included!), big pontoon boats, a nature walking-trail and a lakefront fire every evening. We also offer delicious home cooked meals in the amazing atmosphere of our century-old farm house, and a happy-hour on Saturday evenings - all of which takes place at the resort which has been providing comfort and good value since 1926 to our many long-time guests who return year after year.
Cyclists are welcome! We offer private cabins and bed and breakfast accommodation. Transportation to and from the ferry for cyclists and or their luggage can be arranged. Personal items are safe here but if you wish, bicycles can be taken into the cabins or securely locked to the covered porch railings. Repairs can be arranged with the management. An official repair shop is located on Manitoulin and transportation can also be arranged. Points of interest and other local accommodations can be made available upon request, should you wish to tour the island.
Our season runs from May to the end of Hunting Season in November. You can also enjoy winter activities such as ice fishing, cross country skiing, or snowmobiling (by reservation only). Kids of all ages have a great time here so call about our Winter and Summer Specials for Families and Seniors.

Windsor Essex Pelee Island
Essex County sits on the edge of the Great Lakes in the southern-most region of Canada. Its warm summer temperatures and mostly flat farmland make it an attractive destination for cyclists.
Surrounded on three sides by water, the warm humid weather is perfect for growing grapes and Essex County has become one of the premier wine regions in Canada. Pelee Island is a popular tourist destination and its quiet back-country roads and excellent sightseeing are perfect for the recreational cyclist. Windsor was recognised in 2011 as a 'Bicycle Friendly Community'.
With its proximity to Detroit and the United States, the area has always been a busy transportation corridor. Many of the original rail lines have been abandoned and are slowly being turned into multi-use recreation trails. One of these is the scenic 48km Chrysler Canada Greenway. Also launched summer 2013, the new Lake Erie Waterfront Trail will enable cyclists to follow the shorelines of Lake St Clair, the Detroit River and Lake Erie, connecting to a 1400km cross-provincial trail.
Grey County offers cyclists a chance to experience spectacular views and scenery combined with a variety of communities, small towns, and unique businesses well acquainted with welcoming visitors of all types, including those on bike. Enjoy a peaceful ride through flat waterfront trails along Georgian Bay or challenge your legs with off-road trails or steep roads up the Niagara Escarpment. For a jaunt through the past, follow the Tom Thomson trail or the Underground Railroad route. With numerous trails, road routes, and mountain biking in the area as well as in neighbouring Bruce and Simcoe Counties, Grey County is a cycling hub.
