ADVISORY (Updated: May 04, 2021)
Please note that our Resort accommodations business remains open. All previously made guest reservations for 2021 are valid (once confirmed) and we look forward to welcoming you bayside in the near future.
We respect that choosing to travel during a pandemic is ultimately your choice, and we truly appreciate you choosing us for your planned visit to Manitoulin Island during your travels.
Before deciding to secure a booking at our Resort we encourage you to:
(a) take note of our Cancellation Policy , which is in effect year-round regarding all bookings being non-refundable and non-transferrable.
(b) review all federal, provincial, and local permitted traveler guidance before making a reservation and before travel. This is especially pertinent with respect to the provincial government issuing a province-wide 'Stay-at-Home Order' that came into effect on April 8, 2021.
(c) consider the minimum nights of stay for our Resort log cabin accommodations (2-Nights minimum required).
(d) and also research the different travel route choices available for you to access Manitoulin Island.
Coming here via the Chi-Cheemaun Ferry service?
The Chi-Cheemaun ferry terminal (South Bay Mouth port crossing from Tobermory) are a short 25 min. drive away, as is the Manitoulin-East Airport. Please note that according to their website (Updated Public Advisory dated April 30th) the ferry service has been delayed until further notice and their reservations will re-open on May 15th. The ferry was originally scheduled to resume its operations starting on Friday, May 7th, 2021.
Please note that despite us being located on an island we remain accessible and open year-round thanks to the swing bridge (Little Current) and highways. It provides the only land access to Manitoulin Island and remains operational despite it being 108 years old!
Coming here for fishing?
Shoreline fishing continues to be restricted along Wikwemikong's shoreline due to COVID-19 pandemic safety protocols in place locally. Shoreline access within Wikwemikong continues to be limited to local residents only. We remind you to be respectful of this as it has been in place for the past year (eff. April 2020) that the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in Canada. Please call the Wikwemikong Tourism office at 705-859-3477 for any shoreline fishing requests and updates on the local shoreline fishing.
There is no boat launch at the resort property. A Public Boat Launch is situated across bay in Manitowaning which may have exclusions to meet the ON safety protocols enacted. Call the Manitowaning Township office at 705-859-3196 for up-to-date details on public accessibility of the towns boat launch ramp.
