On the Bay B&B is a great spot as a base for your stay on Manitoulin. Providence Bay has a great sandy beach, water was warm. This is a nice quite village. There are two restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Ingrid is a very friendly hostess. The house is new-just 10 years old and the rooms are great. Wonderful...

Perfect couple of days at Providence Bay this weekend. Ingrid and Trevor went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and content. Comfy bed and nice en suite! Lovely to hear waves during the night and see the dark sky while lying in bed! Thank you Ingrid!

The location is quite good for Manitoulin Island exploring or lust relaxing on the beach on Providence Bay on Lake Huron. The B&B hosts, Ingrid and Trevor are just plain down home-type folks offering a well-run venue. Breakfast are very good, including fresh fruit, filling, good variety (we stayed 3 nights), and using local products like jams and sausages. Our...

We weren't sure where to stay when we visited Manitoulin Island for a couple of days. Providence Bay was a good choice and it may be for you too if you like beaches. On the Bay is literally steps from the sandy beach. The larger room with ensuite bathroom is very comfortable and the bathroom is large. Breakfast is nicely...

Awesome hosts. Ingrid and Trevor were so friendly and welcoming. We were pleased to have their assistance planning our day visiting the island. Everything was so clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was sooooo good. Loved the fruit salad. I really enjoyed sitting on the upper patio viewing the night sky. I would highly recommend this B&B.

The Northern Star room is very comfortable, especially in the evening when the light of the sunset comes streaming in. The breakfast is better than most B&B's I've stayed at. It includes fruit salad, eggs of any style, toast, coffee/tea, jam, etc. Ingrid is very welcoming and helpful. One small tip for her, please let guests know when they arrive...
