We stayed in the bottom floor of the "main house", which features 2 bedrooms separated by a shared kitchen. We didn't realize that "shared" meant shared with owner who has a room upstairs and shared with the staff of the B&B. The main entrance door had to remain unlocked during the day to provide access by the staff to the...

The guesthouse is just next to the Harbour but very quite. The Ferry boot comes only every 4 hours. The rooms are very nice and clean, have a fridge and aircon. There is a separate little breakfast room and the breakfast is presented very nicely. The People are very friendly. We enjoyed the stay very much.

We stayed at the Southbay Guesthouse B&B and our host,Brenda, made our stay enjoyable. The guesthouse is quaint and very comfortable. I enjoyed visiting the Gallery.....there are so many different pieces of art and handwork completed by local artists that it is hard to choose.... We had an array of healthy foods presented at breakfast. Brenda is very personable and...

If you have never had a more than a super experience while staying in a guest house, this place takes the cake. My wife and I came to Southbay Guest house, and to our surprise, we got treated like family. More than family... in fact, we were treated with such care and friendly service. We will most definately come again...

Southbay Guesthouse is a nice place to stay. The service and breakfast are exellent. And Brenda is a great host, welcoming and very helpful with questions about beautiful places on Manitoulin. If we had more time, then we had stayed here a few days longer.

I started my summer vacation with a stay at Southbay Gallery & Guesthouse B & B. What a great way to decompress from work and life in the big city! The room was beautifully decorated, and cozy. The bed was 'just like home'. Brenda is the perfect hostess. She was full of tips and information about the island, and most...

After spending a week at a rental with 5 others, My husband and I stayed at Brenda's in the cottage. I enjoyed sitting outside finishing a book while he had the best afternoon nap ever. The pleasant music drifting from the Gallery was the added touch that made for total relaxation. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, cozy and tastefully decorated...
