About the Property
Cottage, 2 Sleep cottages + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)
This is truly a special place offering a great get away with modern conveniences. For those into photography this is the place. You will find fantastic sunsets, wildlife and wonderful panoramic views everywhere you look. I also recommend a day trip exploring Manitoulin the worlds largest fresh water island. You will feel like you've gone back in time, with beautiful pastoral landscapes, split rail fences, inland lakes and quaint port towns offering shopping and great places to eat. But if you are like me, you may not want to leave the bay. For those who treasure nature and a comfortable retreat away from resorts and the city. One of our recent young visitors said 'this is better than Disney!'
We also offer Guided Fishing Excursions from 3 days to 1 week. Our most popular is the Father/Son-Daughter trip. Of course Mothers can come too. We provide the guides, boats, food, bedding ect. Basically all you need is your proper clothing, fishing equipment and camera. We can handle most of the rest. Check out our Video Links!!!
Since we tailor each trip to your needs the costs vary. Please contact us at:

Wewant to make your stay a memorable and stress free one. You will find most everything you need. We don't want you to worry about bringing anything but your food, clothing, camera, sunscreen and flashlights. You will find our kitchen has most any appliance you will need. We also try to provide garbage bags, paper towels, toilet paper etc.
Check in is 3pm/check out is 10pm unless other arrangements are needed and can be met. Our cleaner may need to overlap slightly on rare occasions for a short time. We ask our guests to strip the sheets and start a load before leaving to help the cleaner.
Please remove all items from the refrigerator and take all garbage from the island. I provide large bags since the marina charges per bag to dispose of garbage. There are recycle bins at the marina.

About the owner: My name is John Dillon. I am presently retired from teaching and various business ventures. I have a wonderful wife, Tes, four great children and two grandchildren. My children and grandchildren have been coming to the island all their lives. We have been blessed to be able to spend our summers in such a special place. As I tell everyone, the island is my therapy. Each summer I come away with a renewed spirit and a clearer head. I am looking forward to growing old, I should say older, and spending more time here with my wonderful family and friends. And I enjoy being able to share this special place with others so they may create lifelong memories of their time with their family and friends on the Island.
