Mochi & Vixen 🐾 wrote a review Jul 2023

My name is Mochi! I’m a 2 year old black lab from America. I sailed to Canada with my best friend, Vixen. It was our first international trip. Our hosts made us feel right at home with belly rubs. We wondered the beautiful property, enjoyed a doggy paddle at the beach and had a campfire in the evenings. The sniffs coming from the kitchen were enough to make us drool. Our humans kept bragging about the phenomenal homemade breakfast. Without Wi-Fi, our humans were forced to spend some quality time with their dogs. It was wonderful!! The highlight for us was a huge mulberry tree. Vixen and I loved foraging for dropped mulberries, our new favorite treat!! The whole island is dog friendly and we loved the boat ride too!! This was the best trip ever for a couple of labs that like to

Visited with 4 adults, a baby, and two Labrador retrievers. Beautiful property, very dog friendly, in fact one of our dogs refused to leave, she absolutely would not get in the van and pulled us back toward the inn. The inn is a short walk from a beach, which was nice for the dogs and the baby and we enjoyed bicycling around the island. We stayed in the family suite which is very spacious and could easily accommodate our crew. Cathy and Kevin were great hosts, we and especially enjoyed Cathy’s breakfasts!

If you are looking to take a pause and slow down the hustle and bustle, please visit this gem. Cathy and Kevin (Owners) are the most lovely, wonderful people. They made us and our aussiedoodle Willow feel so welcome the minute we arrived. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed not only upon our arrival, our whole stay (and you will not be disappointed with the breakfast, each day was perfection)! Our first visit to Peele has sparked so many more visits to come and with family and friends! Thank you!

The most charming and quaint little inn you could ever stay in! If you're looking to disconnect from technology, reconnect with your partner, and connect with nature, this is a prime location. Also, if you're in need of solitude look no further. Let's begin with the view. * This inn is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the beach where you will see the most awe inspiring sunrises. The inn is remote enough that when you're nestled by the campfire you will bare witness to a sky full of glistening stars which would amaze any stargazer. Throught the entire day the birds serenade you with their beautiful songs. Onto the breakfast spread. * Cathy makes a variety of scrumptious breakfast options which is absolutely delightful. Her freshly baked ((from the heart)) homemade

We met Cathy and Kevin when we arrived an hour early for our reservation and were welcomed as if we were their favorite guests. Our two bedroom suite was all ready for us. It was spacious and very comfortable with everything that we could want, including some books and games. Our breakfasts were delicious with ample selections available. The grounds were well maintained and we were able to chat with other guests in the screened pergola, the breakfast porch and, while we enjoyed an evening campfire. All the islanders were so friendly.

What a gem on Pelee Island! We took one of our kids for a fun overnight bday trip. Had a fantastic stay. The room and main house were super clean and well cared for. The service from Cathy and Kevin was amazing and personalized. We will definitely be back year after year!

We have stayed at The Wandering Dog so many times and our stays have been wonderful each time. Cathy and Kevin go above and beyond what is expected of hosts, making sure guests have exactly what they need to make their stay comfortable. The renovations have made it possible for each room to have a dedicated washroom -- a huge plus! The renovations have kept the traditional style of the inn intact and honoured its history. Breakfast is tasty and there is lots of choice. The screened porch where breakfast is served is a welcoming space for dining, playing games, or watching the birds. The grounds are kept beautifully and there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the weather -- from around the fire to the picnic tables to a screened-in gazebo. The lake is just steps away and the

My husband and I had a fabulous 2-night stay in the double queen suite. Comfortable and roomy with lots of space to spread out. Screened porch with table and chairs and a lovely hammock for a lazy read! Breakfasts were fantastic: prosciutto wrapped eggs, homemade waffles with local syrup, muffins, croissants, fruit and yogurt… everything you could want. Cathy and Kevin were super friendly and helpful without being in your face. Definitely would love to come back!

My husband and I and our sister-in-law spent 3 delightful days at The Wandering Dog Inn. Cathy and Kevin are warm and inviting hosts and very knowledgeable about the island. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and they both went the extra mile to make sure our stay was the very best it could be. We found the accommodations spacious and the beds very comfy. We were there for my husband's birthday and Cathy greeted him with cake and candle when we went in for breakfast and the other guests joined in singing Happy Birthday. It was a lovely way to start his day. We highly recommend this Inn to anyone thinking about staying on the Island.

We stayed at The Wandering Dog for 2 1/2 days and cannot recommend it enough. Cathy and Kevin are excellent innkeepers. The breakfast is great. The porch is a wonderful place to meet people, play games or just relax. The freedom of no Wi-Fi, television or cell service is amazing. The entire island is friendly and laid back. Thank you again it was awesome
