BayView Pines is an English style cottage located in Providence Bay, Manitoulin Island, available for year-round rental.
We have 2 bedrooms in the upstairs, each with a double bed. The couch in the living room is a fold-out double bed.
The cottage is stocked with everything you need (pots, pans, dishes, sheets, towels, etc.).
F2or children, we are not "child-proofed", as there are not child latches on cupboards, not plug covers in each electric outlet to exclude young tongues of a crawling baby, and are surrounded by forest into which a toddler or child can wander if a parent is negligent, we have no high chair nor playpen. Kids who come have a fantastic time, quickly finding a week of relief from screen addictions.
We are a rustic cottage (2" x 4" walls, etc.), not the Holiday Inn. Construction is still underway in off-season.
Providence Bay is centrally located, making us an excellent base for exploring all of Manitoulin Island.
Our default nightly rate is based on you renting 1 bedroom in our 2 bedroom house, with up to 2 people in the room. Extra people are $25/night/person. If you need something else, please let us know, as we can design a custom package to exactly meet your needs. Check-in time is after 2:00 PM on the day of your arrival, check-out is before 11:00 AM following the last night of your stay.

If you rent just 1 room, the Host or other renters may be staying in the other room, and you will be sharing the living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathrooms with the Host and/or other renters. If you require exclusive rental of entire house, we can provide a whole-house, exclusive rental rate.
