We stayed for a week and can't say enough good things about Papin's ! Our cabin was a work of art with imperfect artistic touches and super comfy for 5 girls. Kitchen was fully stocked with every cooking item we needed. Firewood is included and a fire under the stars is a must do! Go see it!

Nice place to go for fishing and kayaking no beach for swimming but a lot of trails to check out. Nice gift shops and good restaurants. Very relaxing at Papins Log Cabins. You can also bring your travel trailer if you prefer to camp. What the family really likes is the only way to get on the island is the... More

My family vacations here yearly. Cabins are clean and quaint. Lets face it we didnt come on vacation to spend it in doors. The sunshine and fresh air are free. Spending evenings with neighbors playing cards are telling big fish stories by the fire. Kayaks to rent or boats. Great views and spectacular wildlife. Love coming here.

I've been going to Papin's Resort for years now, usually several times a season. The location is outstanding and the fishing, especially for smallmouth is world class. I've fished from Florida to Alaska, and I can truly say when the bite is on in Scott Bay, nothing tops it. The variety of species available also makes it unique. In the... More

Paipin's is the best place to stay on Drummond Island. Wouldn't think for staying anywhere else. Have been going here for 20+ years. Very friendly owners will help you with anything you need. The views are great and the fishing is the best!

Toilet....needs repair. No heat....wear and tear on the cabin.....I guess people have not experienced better. Clean, but worn. I guess you get what you pay for...prices aren't bad....but things could have been better. Rough it with a cabin....

I'm not sure which cabin you stayed in, but we do make repairs when we are notified of them. Also, ALL of our cabins have heat. If you weren't sure how to turn it on, you just have to ask. Sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. And yes, our cheaper cabins are worn, that's why they are still cheap!... More
