Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We invite you to our paradise located on Manitoulin Island, the world's largest freshwater island.

Our property is your opportunity to sit back, relax, and take in the true beauty of the North. Escape the hustle of your life for a week by traveling to a place where life moves at a slower pace. Take walks in the untouched woods, marvel at the beautiful wildflowers, hummingbirds, squirrels and chipmunks, or take a dip in Lake Huron immediately out front.

Our property contains two cottages that are approximately 100 yards apart that are available separately or together, depending on your needs.

The Mini-Castle is the bigger of the two cottages, able to house up to 8 people with a full kitchen and bath. The beautiful patio deck that overlooks Lake Huron is a great place to sit back, open a book or magazine and reconnect with the pristine nature around you.

Castle-on-the-Rocks is the smaller of the two cottages that offers a more private setting located down a private path from the Mini Castle. It is a 1 bedroom residence with a hideaway couch option to sleep two more. It has a full kitchen, bathroom, patio, washer/dryer and the biggest view of Lake Huron that you have ever seen.

Enjoy the surrounding nature and serenity by hiking the miles of untouched coast line and woods adjoining to our cottages, or walk two minutes to the harbor to enjoy fishing charters or docking your own boat. The village of South Baymouth is just a 5 minute walk where you can enjoy great shopping, fresh whitefish at one of the local restaurants, or check out the galleries featuring local and Native artists.

In the evening, warm yourself up in front of the wood fireplace as you watch the Chi-Cheemaun ferry sail into the harbor lit up against the dark night sky, or gaze at the Northern Lights.

Let our paradise be your next unforgettable vacation.

Great secluded Cottage on Georgian Bay

  • 5 of 5

Loved it. The owners checked in before, during, and after our stay to make sure that all was well. Great waterfront cottage. Large kitchen, living room, and dining room. Close to South Bay mouth. Waffle Shop and restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

great place

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay here and will come back again! The view of the beach is beautiful. We went fishing in the daytime, took a little drive to the waterfall and walked the trail, did some shopping for souvenirs... We had campfire at night. A very good time and good memory! Thank you!

Perfect lake cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mini Castle at the end of July. The owner was easy to communicate with and the property was as described. The cabin is perfectly situated: it is directly on the lake and feels very secluded yet you could walk to the local ice cream or fish and chip shops in minutes. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed. Supply your own linens, blankets and towels. There was a Laundromat at the nearby marina. Kids enjoyed swimming and exploring the rocks. Very likely will stay again. Thank you!

Not so much a Castle on the Rocks

  • 1 of 5

We rented the pair of cottages. While the mini-cottage was reasonably clean, the Castle on the Rocks was much less so. The main problem was the mouse excrement in the kitchen, refrigerator and on the bed......all of which we had to clean. This put a real damper on our enjoyment of the five days we spent. To the owners credit, we were given a discount of the rental, but we would have preferred the expected alternative.

To be fair, the view of the lake is quite exceptional.

Owner's Response: We're very sorry that you chose not to contact us during your stay, as we had requested before you arrived, so we could rectify the problem and make your stay much more enjoyable. The cottages and carpets were professionally cleaned 48 hours before your arrival and no evidence before or after your stay of mice was ever visible. Yours is the first complaint we've ever had and we're sorry that you didn't give us the opportunity to make it better for you.
