This property is quite large and very nicely kept. The owner is very helpful and available during the posted 9-9 times. Remember to bring a fan with you as the cottages do not have them nor are air conditioned. The kitchen is well equipped. Beds are basic and maybe doubles or queens. On a hot day it is difficult to sleep! The grounds are well kept. There are nightly activities, but not a nightly bonfire. What we didn't like was that there is a no pets policy, yet we counted 5 different dogs on the property. We didn't bring ours (we wanted to) and were taken aback. The property advertises acres on the lake, but there is no beach, there is a small off-dock swimming area (not suitable for young children) down at the marina area. Nice beaches are about a 15-20 minute drive away in M'Chigeng to the north and Providence Bay to the south. Overall a good value for money. Mindemoya is a quaint town and overall Manitoulin is a hidden gem in Canada!
