About Eric Bell

We visited Honey Harbour first by boat in 1972 and decided in 1978 to move our boat there. We have spent every family summer vacation since then there. In 1997, we then purchased our cottage there on Picnic Island.

Eric Bell purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Eric Bell chose Honey Harbour

This cottage location on Picnic Island provides a great sheltered dockage for our boat. The sandy beach and the safe swimming there is great for our grand children to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

We have great times visiting with our neighbors on our street and with long time friends who own trailers at the Picnic Island resort.

Family Celebration 2015

  • 4 of 5

Our family came to spend some time together. We range in age from 11 -87. Everyone had a great time. This cottage and Bunkie can sleep a large group. You have your own private dock for fishing, swimming and sunning. Lake water was warm. If you need anything the store is a short stroll and has 20 different flavours of ice cream. The cottage was clean and comfortable and the owners met us on arrival. Campfire pit and screened in porch. We sure hope to return!

Fun Times

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time away at a great location. As motorcyclists, it was a perfect spot with lots of twisty roads nearby. It was a little too chilly to swim but there was a wonderful beach and we did enjoy relaxing on the dock watching the boats come and go into the harbour. The fishing must be good as they were jumping! Quaint rustic cottage, with new modern detached bunkie. Lots of space for a big family or group.

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice location that is well kept and maintained. It is on a quiet bay close to town and a great spot for boating. Our family has spent many years in the area camping on Beausoleil Island and boating throughout the Georgian Bay area. For the last 9 years we have rented this cottage and enjoyed our time there. We boat, swim and take long walks to Honey Harbour. If you are looking for a place to spend time together, do puzzles, read and relax, then this is the place. It is an ideal spot to watch the boat traffic from the marina and enjoy the large cruisers going by. The beach is nice, a bit rocky, but lots of room to build sandcastles.
