|Situated on Manitoulin Island on the shores of beautiful Lake Manitou is Manitoulin Resort.
Manitoulin Resort is a friendly, family resort with something for everyone. Guests can choose between deluxe housekeeping cottages or a camping vacation. In the spring, we cater to the fisherman who fish for trophy lake trout as soon as the ice leaves the lake. Summer brings families to our resort to enjoy a memorable vacation whether in one of our deluxe cottages, or camping amongst the trees,
memories are made here. In the fall the pace slows down, and we invite you to see the beautiful fall colours.
Manitoulin is a unique place where ancient native legends combine with historic sites and beautiful scenery to provide an unforgettable vacation experience. The pace of life is slower and easier here, allowing for a peaceful, relaxing holiday atmosphere. After a few days, the magic of Manitoulin takes over and you find yourself relaxing, slowing down and taking time to enjoy the beauty which surrounds you. Crystal clear lakes, abundant wildlife and birds and winding scenic roads lead to new discoveries at every turn. Spring features wild flower tours and fishing derbies while auctions, live theatre and art exhibitions are happening all summer.
Manitoulin Resort is close to Wikwemikong Indian village where the annual Pow Wow, one of the biggest in Ontario, takes place on the Civic Holiday weekend in August. Fall brings colour tours and local fall fairs for a change of pace. The many communities on
Manitoulin offer shopping, restaurants, banking, gift shops, medical services and other amenities. Roads are well maintained with light traffic, perfect for cycling or a leisurely scenic drive. Hiking enthusiasts will enjoy Manitoulin's famous Cup and Saucer trail which is only twenty minutes from Manitoulin Resort. A rainy-day trip to Sudbury allows an opportunity to visit the Big Nickel Mine, Science North and the Imax Theatre.
