Interaction with guests Owner may or may not be there in a nearby artist studio but there is distance between abodes.

That said, we have minimal solar power, though so that phones can be charged though a signal is intermittent and definitely no wifi. The solar will also charge a light or two should you wish more light for making dinner, etc. The property is very private but there is a small village nearby with wifi and a town 10km away with large grocery store and wifi cafe. The local people are wonderful and we have a lot of international visitors to the island. Getting around There are no buses and few taxis. You'll need a car. Other things to note BRING: your own coffee, foods, drinking water, ice COOKING: many of our friends love to cook, so we have a good set-up with a large table for food prep, etc. It doesn't take long to figure things out, just use common sense and logic and imagine you are your ancestor! OUTDOOR SHOWER: is unheated but warms up in the sun. Everyone finds their own unique technique to stay clean and oddly, often lose taste for warm showers upon returning to 'civilization'! We also have a tin cowboy bath and bowls for sponge bathing.

Our cottage is located in beautiful Providence Bay, Ontario on Manitoulin Island. Manitoulin Island is the largest fresh water island in the world with a rich aboriginal history of dating back as far as 10,000 BC. Providence Bay is a delightful village community situated on Lake Huron on the south shore of the island in Georgian Bay. It is easily accessible from Sudbury (less than 2 hours away) or from the Chi-Cheemaun Ferry as South Bay Mouth and the Ferry Terminal is only 25 minutes away.) Providence Bay is renowned for the best sandy beach on the island, with an extensive boardwalk and a children's play area. (not to mention a welcomed lack of mosquitoes and black flies) Providence Bay is a unique to most areas in Northern Ontario in that there are virtually no black flies and almost no mosquitoes throughout most of the year. The annual Providence Bay Fair in August attracts thousands of visitors to the area. The parade snakes through the town to the delight of the gathering crowds. The Fair is held on the third weekend of August each year. Providence Bay also boasts fantastic cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Another plus: it's only 25 minutes from the ferry at South Baymouth. Reviews 'Had a great stay – cottage was beautiful and in a terrific location.
