The inn and its keepers are charming and inviting. Cathy and Kevin ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. Cathy whips up mean and filling breakfast with accommodations for all food needs. The coffee was luxurious!
The suite I stayed in was well appointed and had all needed for a stay. The bed slept well and would be happy to stay another night. The screened in porch was lovely as the bugs were out in full force! The room was very clean.
In the evening, the bonfire is a great time to get to know the other guest and would recommend to attend. Great conversations will be had!
Thank you so much Cathy and Kevin for hosting me at your inn. I had a great tome and will be staying here on my next visit to the island.
This is definitely the place you want all your friends and family to come experience when visiting the island!

We were part of a birdwatching group and really enjoyed staying at the Wandering Dog Inn. Cathy and Kevin gave us tips and good ideas for exploring the island. Our room was large and comfortable and located in the restored building beside the main inn. The meals were extremely good. We highly recommend the Wandering Dog Inn!

Cathy and Kevin are outstanding hosts who made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Breakfast was delicious and the room was beautiful, the grounds were enchanting. Great place to reset and be still and listen to nature. Thanks Kevin for the great suggestions for restaurants and must see sights. We will be back!

Another amazing trip and stay at Pelee Island and the Wandering Dog Inn. I already miss the amazing breakfasts by Cathy and Kevin coming by every night to make sure we were good before we settled in for the night after a great day of biking and swimming. Great hosts as always. I highly recommend booking your relaxing time at both Pelee and the Wandering Dog Inn. What are you waiting for? Just do it!!

The Wondering Dog is a lovely Inn. Cathy and Kevin were gracious hosts. Our room in the separate building was spacious and clean. They provided great tips and advice before our daily outings. Take advantage of their local insight to avoid pitfalls. Cathy’s breakfasts were delicious. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning a quiet getaway to Pelee island.

I don’t even know where to begin with how lovely this stay was! The location is idyllic, the accommodations were beyond comfy and the hospitality was exceptional. Our Inn Keepers, Cathy and Kevin, went above and beyond with generous and gracious hosting.

We spent three days on the island at the Wandering Dog and really enjoyed our stay. It's an old-fashioned inn on a quiet property. Our room was clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Cathy and Kevin were fantastic hosts.

Cathy and Kevin are absolutely amazing as a couple and a team! They’re organized, extremely
clean, very accommodating and SUPER Fun! By the end of our 2 night stay we felt like we were staying with a great big family. Wonderful stories by the campfire, breakfast and even a fun group adventure to the beach! We came home rested and refreshed!
We can’t wait to return.
Thanks to all our new friends and especially to Cathy and Kevin for such a great short vacation.

I would like to thank Kevin and Cathy for a wonderful stay at the Wandering Dog Inn. You both made us feel so welcome and comfortable we felt at home. Our room was just lovely and the bed was perfect. We are so very rested and relaxed after our stay. The breakfasts was scrumptious. A great way to start our day. Our island adventure started with all of the sights including island wild life like a fox snake, turkeys, a bald head eagle, grey and white cranes, plus many other birds including pelicans the high light of my day. The ferry ride was fun too. I highly recommend you plan your own Peelee Island adventure.

We had the best experience at Pelee Island because of the Wandering Dog Inn. Our family suite was spacious, clean and a minute walk to the beach. Our dog Lola loved it as well! Nothing but wonderful memories and delicious breakfast. An amazing place to embrace the beauty of the island without the distraction from technology. The Owners were gracious and friendly. We will be back!!

Most of these questions are best asked of Hotel owners ......... No Wifi, check their website I am not aware of any discounts, the Hospitality Industry has experienced hard times through Covid, my view is that we should do all that we can to help them survive. Just my opinion ......
