4 of 5 stars Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Staying at this cottage was a really nice experience. It was extremely clean and all three rooms (including the guest cabin) were very comfortable. It was a little pricier than other options but it was within 15 mins to great hiking trails, had a fire pit and kayaks. Highly recommended! more

Management response:

This is a wonderful place to stay. There is a lot to do and enjoy right from the cabin. It's especially suited to young children due to the shallow water (I have a two year old). Really short drive to a perfect beach. Close to Tobermory and the national park. The cabin is comfortable and just like a home. It... more

Thank you for taking the time to review the cottage. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay.

The flying squirrels and the birds... more

Our week at the Willow Bank was more relaxing and enjoyable than we have expected. The serene and private surrounding was a wonderful getaway from the big city, and its a great place to just sit back, take it easy, and forget about the time. Almost wish this place remains a hidden gem! Thanks again Glenn! more
