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.

Ottawa Valley & Renfrew County
The Ottawa Valley has a number of rivers and valleys interconnected throughout Renfrew County. Criss-crossing the Ottawa River, Bonnechere and Madawaska Rivers, and skirting many lakes, the area has a number of mapped road riding routes. These routes include many options for stops at interesting heritage sites, artists' studios, swimming areas and communities while cycling quiet country roads and enjoying spectacularly scenic forested and often hilly landscape.
Across the County there are numerous rugged mountain biking trails to challenge oneself, with many of the snowmobile trails converting to multi-use trail systems beyond the winter season. Cyclists can also enjoy off-road recreational riding along abandoned railway beds that include the K&P Trail.
The powerful and lengthy Ottawa River has a rich history of both First Nations and early settlers. With tributaries flowing in from Algonquin Park, Quebec on the eastern river bed, and the city of Ottawa not far south, it is easy to get to the many cycling and outdoor adventures nearby.
