“peaceful and cozy”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

After spending a week at a rental with 5 others, My husband and I stayed at Brenda's in the cottage. I enjoyed sitting outside finishing a book while he had the best afternoon nap ever. The pleasant music drifting from the Gallery was the added touch that made for total relaxation. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, cozy and tastefully decorated with interesting pieces of furniture and art. The dining room has down home charm and a delicious breakfast for a great start for the day. I've stayed twice before in different rooms and would go back to any one of them. The Gallery has wonderful moderately priced hand made Canadian goods and art that made for easy early Christmas shopping for the gifts that I have to get. Can't wait for a return visit. I've attached a few photos from previous visits. The outdoor area allows for socializing when you want to, or not as I chose on this visit. Having WiFi was a bonus too!

Stayed here for two nights on our way home from Killarney Park so that we could explore Manitoulin Island and be close to the ferry. Would recommend staying an extra night or two to make the most of it. Brenda is very helpful and friendly, and she gave us plenty of tips about hikes, places to visit, and restaurants (either within walking distance or a short drive away). We enjoyed our comfortable room in The Pottery and Diane provided an extensive and healthy breakfast - very good coffee. Brenda's Gallery promotes a wide selection of Canadian arts and crafts - something for everyone at most price points. Would stay here again for sure.

Stayed at Southbay Gallery & Guesthouse in September 2011 and we were very pleased with the service. We've chosen this accommodation due to its pet friendly policy (we were traveling with a medium sized dog). Great breakfast & location: extremely close to the ferry.
Would definitely stay here again when visiting Manitoulin Island.

How blessed were we? We had the bed - a quaint and comfortable room with private bath. We had the breakfast - something different every morning - delicious and healthy - in such an ambient little cottage with our fellow guests. We had our hosts Brenda and her son Noj who both made us feel so welcome and made it all magically happen. And then there was the Gallery with beautiful works of art done by local Manitoulin artists.

Could not have been better.

Excellent B & B. The hostess, Brenda Renwick, was welcoming and helpful. She has a good knowledge of the island ferry as well as the local attractions. The room with ensuite bath was nicely decorated and very very clean. There were options for breakfast ensuring something for everyone's taste. We were able to get our feezer packs frozen overnight.

Brenda and her staff couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating to my husband and I on our one night in Manitoulin Island. What a special place this is. I had stayed here with a friend 10 years ago and loved it then. Our stay at Southbay Guesthouse was perfect - thanks Brenda!
