Manitoulin Resort features six fully equipped deluxe housekeeping cottages nestled among mature trees with a view of Lake Manitou. Each cottage boasts a fireplace, wood stove insert or wood burning stove as well as electric heat. All cottages have a fully equipped kitchen with appliances including a microwave, coffee maker and propane barbeque. There is a three or four piece bathroom and we supply the bedding. For your convenience, each cottage has potable water, a fire pit, lawn chairs and picnic table. One complimentary load of firewood including paper and kindling delivered every day during your stay in May, June, September & October.  During July and August, this delivery occurs every other day in the afternoon.  You will find the deck overlooking Lake Manitou to be the perfect spot to relax with a good book, enjoy a camp fire, watch a spectacular sunset or listen to the haunting cry of the loons.

Our season typically begins the May long weekend, (Mother Nature permitting), and Cottages remain open until the end of the first week of October.  During "prime season" (July & August), cottages are rented on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday.  We will only permit a minimum 2-night stay during the "prime season" IF the cottage week is still available two days prior to the Saturday check-in date.  In the "off season" cottages are available anytime for a minimum two-night stay.

We can accept and confirm new cottage reservations February 1st and onwards every year.  Our policy is that those who stayed with us for a full week in the previous year has "first dibs" for that same time frame for the upcoming season and must confirm their stay with their cottage deposit by January 1st.  Please feel free to contact us if you would like to be placed on our cottage request list prior to February 1st.  It's not difficult to reserve a cottage as life changes and not all return year after year.  We will contact those on our waiting list prior to accepting new reservations which will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

In order to confirm a cottage reservation, you must be a minimum of 21 years of age and we require a minimum $200.00 deposit for a one-week stay or $100.00 for less than a one-week stay.  (Ex. 1 1/2 weeks = $300.00).  Your non-refundable deposit will be deducted from your final invoice upon arrival.  Cancellations and "no shows" made 3 weeks or less prior to your arrival date will result in a charge applied to your credit card for half of the reserved cottage rental fee plus applicable taxes, minus your initial deposit.  Deposits are non-refundable as of February 1st of the current year.  No refunds are given due to inclement weather or for issues beyond our control.  Please be advised you are responsible for payment for all nights you have reserved.

If you do not arrive for your cottage on your date scheduled for arrival and you have not called us at 705-859-3550 to update us, we will assume that you have chosen to cancel your reservation without notice.

For deposits, we accept email payment transfers, personal cheques, (if received at least 4 weeks prior to stay), bank draft, money order, cash, Visa or MasterCard.  We cannot accept Debit Visa's or prepaid gift cards.  Upon arrival, you will be asked to confirm your Visa or MasterCard as we keep it on file in the event of damages or additional service fees.  If you do not have a credit card, we cannot reserve a cottage for you.

Check-in is 3:00 pm and onwards.  Check-out is 10:00am NO EXCEPTIONS.  Please call us if you will be arriving after 5pm in order to make arrangements for late arrival.

We are a family/staff operated resort who put our hearts and souls in to this beautiful retreat. We all strongly believe in personal customer service. It is always best to CALL us to confirm a camping site or cottage so that we can do our absolute best to accommodate your requests. Unfortunately, a computer is NOT very good at conveying your thoughts and feelings however a quick call can make the process easy. Feel free to email us by clicking on the "Reservations" tab however since we are family run, please be patient for a response.

Smoking/Vaping is prohibited in the cottages.  An additional fee of $250.00 plus tax will be charged to your credit card for cleaning costs if smoking has occurred within.  Outside ashtrays are supplied.
