Room was beautifully decorated, loved the artwork throughout the house. We relaxed at the end of the day in the living room available for guests. Breakfast was amazing and hosts were very attentive to your needs.

Island Shores is a step above. This was our second visit to a bed and breakfast. The first place we went I won't mention. Island Shores Ina's everything we didn't even know we needed.

I can honestly say that this is one of the best b&b's we have stayed in. Every small detail is thought of to make your stay so comfortable and relaxing. The food was delicious and good for you too! The hostess and host were such warm and friendly people that I will always remember. We will definitely come back someday

We tried several others before we found a room at this clean and up-to-date B&B. We are glad it worked out this way. Island Shores is a quiet, clean and comfortable inn on the east edge of Rossport. Our room was very nicely set up, the bath facilities almost sybaritic with a heated floor. Upstairs is a large living/lounge area... More

Gerry P, Owner at Island Shores Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Very rarely in this business do you make note of certain guests who are not welcome back either due to disrespect for the facility or for other guests. Also disrespect for my wife, bordering on being libelous in accusing her of unsubstantiated verbal abuse. Unfortunately these ladies and the ones in the next review above fall into this category.

This is a lovely home and we felt so lucky to have found it! The previous reviewer's words: "clean and pleasant, but .........a bit severe," do not in any way capture the atmosphere and hospitality of this charming place and the people who have created it.

The B&B was clean and pleasant, but I did feel like we needed to be on our best behaviour - something like visiting an older relative who's a bit severe. Certainly it was made clear to us what the rules were. Having said that, it was a pleasant stay, with clean rooms and comfortable beds. We appreciated the common area... More

We decided to stay at Island Shores because of all the wonderful reviews on-line. We are so impressed with this hidden gem. Jerry and Nanette are the owners and you can tell they love having guests at this quaint Inn. Jerry is a chef that should have his own restuarant to show off his creations. We had oven baked french... More
