Absolutely love staying at Island View! We have been several times. Island View was my first B&B experience and has "spoiled" me for any other experiences. The location is a wonderful destination spot if you are planning to vacation in the area. It's close to the Bruce Caves, Bruce Trail and a short drive to Sauble Beach or up the Bruce Peninsula to Tobermory. If you don't want to travel, but just want to "hang out" and read a book the property (gardens/ponds etc) is beautiful and the view from the deck is wonderful....it's so relaxing. The rooms are immaculate- we've stayed in the room with the queen size bed and it provides you with your own private space with a spacious bathroom all to yourself. The beds are extremely high quality, the house is immaculate. Mark and Cathy's son Steven is an artist and his original works are on display. Mark and Cathy's breakfast is top notch and Cathy is extremely knowledgeable if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions. In fact you could NOT ask for better hosts - we've enjoyed getting to know Mark and Cathy over our visits. Any questions about the area - they will know the answer!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Island View B&B is located 6kms east of the Town of Wiarton on Grey County Road 1. It overlooks Colpoys Bay and is across the road from Bruce's Caves Conservation Area. The Conservation Area has great hiking trails and is open year round, there is no admittance charge. We offer a drop off service to hikers subject to availability. There is a rough trail from the B&B down the escarpment to the bay and a walk / bike around the block is 4km. Island View B&B was originally a single family home built to R2000 standards and is heated / cooled by geothermal. We added a "granny flat" for Cathy's parents in 2006 and an additional two car garage. Mark gained a "play" area! The Bed and Breakfast is in the original house and has King and Queen bed rooms each with en suite bathrooms and one room with two double beds with a private bathroom across the hall. Each room has a large window, bar fridge, coffee table and two chairs. Most guests relax in either the sunroom or the living room. Our oldest son Steve is an accomplished artist (even if we say so ourselves!) Specializing in wildlife. His medium is acrylic on canvas and we display his original work here. We are partially solar powered. We now offer Electric Vehicle charging- NEMA 14-50 receptacle. We really enjoy the people that come to stay with us....
