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...

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.

Stayed at Southbay Gallery & guest house and as lovely as the first time. Brenda is so friendly and welcoming. We took our friends from England and they loved it too.

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...

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!

I was travelling with my cousin and elderly aunt. We wanted a place to stay for two nights with no stairs for my aunt to climb and we wanted to be close to the ferry. We were touring the island each day and didn't need more than a room to sleep in and breakfast each day. We felt very lucky...

Our stay on the Manitoulin Island was enhanced by the friendly staff and over the top attitude of everyone. The outdoor fire pit provided an ideal opportunity for meeting other guests and naturally led to interesting conversations. Guest room two was well decorated, had a comfortable bed and private bath. The breakfast was outstanding. We would highly recommend the Southbay...

Very nice B&B, especially rooms #1 and 2 as they have private baths. Other rooms are nice as well if you don't mind sharing a bathroom with one other room. The owners are most accomodating, with little extras such as hot tub, campfires in the back yard, and a beautiful craft store. They also offer infra-red spa and chair massages...
