Laundry facilities are in Mindemoya, about 20 minutes away. The main home is nearby but far enough away to offer plenty of privacy for the visitor. There are only three year-round homes on this bay so traffic on the beach is minimal.
There is always lots to do on Manitoulin, ranging from summer festivals, country shops, golf and Pow Wows. There is a large grocery store, an old fashioned hardware shop, restaurants, laundry, many other services and a hospital, all located 20 minutes away. Manitoulin hosts numerous attractions including the Bridal Veil falls, Ten Mile Point, the Ojibway Cultural Center, many art studios (popular on Manitoulin) and antique shops. Providence Bay has a great playground for children, a boardwalk and attractions for adults to browse. The Beach House is open in the winter too when great sunsets and dramatic ice shapes form on the beach for the photographer. There is also snowmobiling, ice fishing and cross country skiing available. The internet is not ideal in this area.
Come and have fun on Manitoulin, or just relax on the beach, or in the Beach House in any season. The choice is yours! .More
We have a rural septic field bed that is ideal for small groups. The Beach House is not suitable for large groups or big parties. We limit the number of guests to six to accommodate the available resources. Extra guests have visited from time to time, but in small numbers and that has worked out to date.
Thank-you for understanding.
Petra and Bill, your hosts
The location is amazing - the beach is almost on your doorstep. If peace and quiet is what you need with perfect days lazing on the beach, then this is the place you want to go to. Will definitely visit again.
The beach house on Square Bay is the perfect get-away! With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a generously well-appointed kitchen, you'll find everything you need to relax and enjoy the peaceful beach on Manitoulin. Petra and Bill are gracious hosts and have thoughtfully provided everything...More

We really enjoyed our Week in October on Lake Huron. The cabin really saved the week on the beach since the weather wasn't the best. None the less we all loved it. We (kids with grandparents) really enjoyed the cabin, beach, the hosts and the...More

Thanks so much for the excellent review! We certainly enjoyed meeting your family and we were very happy to see that you liked your visit!
The beach house was beautiful. Equipped with absolutely everything one would need. The beach was perfect, untouched by man with a variety of plant life. The children spent hours collecting fossilized rocks. It was extremely tranquil. A perfect place to get away from it all....More

We cannot stress enough how amazing the beach house was. Comfortable beds, fully-equipped kitchen that met all of our needs, use of the grill, beach access, firepit and firewood, a quiet, secluded location, etc. This house was far more comfortable than we hoped or anticipated,...More

We enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing some time with them. So happy they enjoyed the place. October is a little cooler but a great time for waves and walks! Thanks for the grand review!
Rural location on beautiful southern shore of Manitoulin Island where the best beaches are. People here go snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and hiking in winter. Hiking is popular in the summer too as is the beach. The beach is the main attraction. You can fish or just relax and sit on the beach. Manitoulin has many other attractions celebrating both the native and non-native cultures from Pow Wows, native artifacts to festivals, dark sky telescope sessions, local produce at farmer's markets and some wonderful restaurants. Manitoulin is one of the premier locations to visit in Ontario. You will need your car to get around. There are no regular buses here. The island has three golf courses, one of which has 18 holes. The closest course is in Mindemoya with nine holes about 20 minutes from here.
There is no public transportation available to this location
