Charlene and Gord have set up their spacious lake front home with very comfortable spaces, not too far from highway 6. It is about 200 yards to the lake front where they have a canoe and kayaks you can take out gratis. We did and had a nice paddle out into the channel. We stayed in the Music Room -...

The place is wonderful. Hammock by the water, swinging chairs from the trees, fire pit, to name a few of the wonderful things at this home. Lovely room with a comfy bed. Breakfasts were awesome - fresh, tasty and filling. The hosts were exceptional. Charlene went out of her to explain the Island and places to see. It was apparent...

We stayed with Char and Gord for 2 nites in Aug 2016. Couldn't have been nicer people, they invited us for dinner with their family. Beautiful property, house was gorgeous and the Music Room wonderful. Swimming was lovely in the clear waters. We just had the best time with them. Thanks!!

Willow Shores is one of the best places to stay on Manitoulin Island. The hosts, Gord and Charlene, are incredible hosts - so warm and welcoming - and are arguably the best part of the B&B. The breakfasts Charlene makes are incredible, and there are always muffins out to take as an on-the-go snack. I've stayed at the B&B twice...

We just stayed one night since we were on a road trip back to Vancouver, but we so wished it could have been longer. This is a very beautiful home with lovely grounds extending to the bay, but it is the hosts that make the place special. Charlene and Gord are very genuine, warm and hospitable people; they make you...

I consider we were lucky to pick this B&B and stayed there for 3 nights last week. Charlene and Gord were truly amazing hosts. We walked in as a host and guest and walked out with a great friendship! Charlene and Gord were so genuine that you would want to just stay and chatted with them. We learned the history...

We felt comfortable and at home the moment we arrived. Charlene and Gord are the perfect hosts. Their home is beautiful and clean, and the grounds around the house are beautifully kept. We woke up to the smell of coffee, fresh baked goods and breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Great rooms. Real good breakfast and very nice people. Views are worth a visit. Treat you like family. Plan to stay longer than an over-nighter. You'll be glad you did. (We didn't but will be back). Not only s great place to stay but Charlene (the owner) gave us details of what to see and do. A fantastic host.

We had a wonderful stay! We had a beautiful room with private bathroom, a delicious breakfast, perfect location, and a great hostess! Charlene drew us a map of all the best places to see on the island, and she was right! She even gave us snacks at night!

Charlene and Gord made us feel very welcome and we had a fantastic time there. Lots there to do from canoe, kayaks, swimming, camp fires, and games. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone going to manitoulin island.

“The inside rooms have open windows at the ceiling to the large living room so, it would be best to avoid them if you want a more quiet stay.”
  • Bathroom for the Family Suite

“The music room is large, with a large ensuite and private elevated deck with steps down to back yard. The two inside rooms are smaller but since you have free access to the entire house, there is another large deck for all guests, and you want to be spending your time outside anyway, these rooms are just fine. We stayed in an inside room and the music room.”
