  • Amazing property with plenty of space and activities.

    "Frank is a great guy who is genuine and laid-back. He allowed us to check in early and stay later than planned and helped us out with any thing to do with the house. It was a pleasure to have met him and stayed at his retreat. Definitely a great place for any occasion."

  • Perfect escape

    "My mother, husband and I recently stayed at the Castle on the Rocks cottage (July 2016). We love the slow pace of Manitoulin and the cottage was a perfect fit for our trip. The smaller cottage is set apart from the other cottages on the private laneway so it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, but you can easily walk in to town if you want to take a night off from cooking, grab a beer on a patio, or visit the marina. We prepared meals in the well stocked kitchen but also enjoyed the local restaurants for dinner during our stay. The cottage itself is a real gem. It seemed to the be the older of the two buildings but was a truly authentic cottage, complete with a beautiful stone fireplace and lovely family heirlooms. It was very evident that it was a well-loved property where many happy family memories were created. We stayed during a heat wave but the breeze coming of Lake Huron kept us nice and cool at night. Swimming in front of the cottage (with water shoes) was beautiful and very refreshing. If you want calm, warm water you may want to stay on one of the lakes on the interior of the island, but we loved the sounds of the waves, the fresh air, and the dramatic landscape of the coast. From the cottage property you can access some beautiful trails with intricate cedar carvings (benches, boardwalks and totems), or drive ~30min to the famous Cup-and-Saucer tail just north of M'Chigeeng. We spent most of our time relaxing in the shade of the umbrella reading a book, or exploring the nooks and crannies of the flower-studded shoreline. This was exactly the recharge that we needed, with the convenience of being a few minutes from the ferry dock and South Baymouth. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and we would definitely visit again."

  • Great time in Niagara Falls

    "There were 4 of us. (2 adults and 2 teens.) House is adorable and spacious! Paul answered our questions and helped us out when needed. House is a doable walking distance to the falls and attractions. (In our opinion). The area is very quiet and not a lot of traffic. We really enjoyed our stay at the Copper Penny House."

  • Beautiful House and Beach

    "We have stayed at this property many times and really enjoy it. We've rented many cottages and and have a broad range of experiences to compare this with. This property is very spacious and well appointed. The dining room has a large table to seat a big group, and the kitchen has everything we've needed for cooking. There are two living room areas, and the back porch is very spacious- there are several tables for eating and many places to sit. Our favourite part of the cottage is the outdoor space- the back porch, beautiful lawn and garden, and most of all the beach. There is a beautiful private beach year after year, and we spend most of our days enjoying it. The depth (width?) of the beach varies from year to year; this year there was at least 25' of sand from the lawn to the water. Anyone expecting more than this should probably go to Sauble (and put their towel down a few inches from the next person). Inside the cottage there have always been plenty of towels and linens, and we always find the cottage clean on arrival. The photos on the website are an accurate representation of the house. The house has a main floor bedroom and bath which makes it perfect for a two-family group, or for people who don't want to contend with stairs. (There are 4-5 stairs to enter the cottage and several to the beach.) We have noticed a crane on the beach more times than we have noticed the permanent resident above the garage- have never heard and seldom seen him. The cottage is only a few minutes from several wineries (and I suppose there are other things to see, but that's enough for us)! Highly recommend Erie Shores Vineyard just out on County Rd. 50. The area is safe, quiet, and nice for walking in the evening. It's a great spot to Kayak or paddle; the water is often very calm in the mornings. Year after year we've continued to enjoy Argyle beach and this fantastic house!"
