We booked with Ria for a week summer 2015 - the cottage had everything we needed but the best part was the total privacy we had out the back of our cottage. Right onto our own little steam so we could come and go and even had a family of ducks to keep us entertained. Stores a short 10 min...

After travelling halfway across the province we pulled into the resort in the evening and discovered the owner had double booked. We had paid the deposit and received the receipt. Owner said she'd find us somewhere and offered us a trailer park up the road - not exactly what we drove eight hours to do. We managed to find a...

For a cottage vacation in Ontario, Manitoulin Island is a really nice destination. Viva Villa definitely has all that you need: great cottages, beautiful grounds and a superb view, and welcoming hosts. Cottages are comfortable and fully furnished, including satellite television and access to wifi. The kitchen is well-equipped. The grounds are really well-maintained and the view of Lake Kagawong...

Our family has been to Viva Villa 6 times and we feel like it is our home away from home. The lake is beautiful, the property is exceptional and we always have a great time when we go. Gerry & Ria are wonderful hosts and they run a family-friendly property where all feel comfortable. We'll be back again next year...

Cody (my Australian Shepherd) and I made a trip to Manitoulin Island the end of September to enjoy the autumn weather, do some hiking and a little fishing. We lucked out in finding this wonderful resort which consists of four quaint cottages. They are all updated and very clean with nice bathrooms and well appointed kitchens. The woodstove works great...

One of the nicest places in the north country. This place is quiet, clean and very family oriented. I have been taking my kids there since they were young. My children are grown and now I am taking my step-daughter there. The swimming area is shallow with a VERY gradual slope to deeper water. They provide books, comfy chair for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Viva Villa is a small family -run resort centrally located on Manitoulin Island. Our location is perfect for guests who wish to tour the Island. It is very quiet as we only have 4 cottages and we specialize in families and couples. We have 2 sandy beaches with no drop-offs which is great for small children swimming in our spring-fed lake. Lake Kagawong is quite big (40 squared miles) and we are located at the northern end in a bay. We usually have about a 75% return rate annually so it is necessary to book early.There is so much to do on Manitoulin Island - fish, swim, tour, horseback riding, golf and just plain relaxing. We are far from any traffic so your peace is assured. We also have 2 private cottages about 1 mile down the country road. Please email for more info. We have rowboats, motorboats, canoes, kayaks and paddleboats. We are pet friendly to one dog per cottage assuming they are well behaved and won't disturb our other guests. ... more   less
