Island View B&B is located 6kms east of the Town of Wiarton on Grey County Road 1. It overlooks Colpoys Bay and is across the road from Bruce's Caves Conservation Area. The Conservation Area has great hiking trails and is open year round, there is no admittance charge. We offer a drop off service to hikers subject to availability. There is a rough trail from the B&B down the escarpment to the bay and a walk / bike around the block is 4km. Island View B&B was originally a single family home built to R2000 standards and is heated / cooled by geothermal. We added a "granny flat" for Cathy's parents in 2006 and an additional two car garage. Mark gained a "play" area! The Bed and Breakfast is in the original house and has King and Queen bed rooms each with en suite bathrooms and one room with two double beds with a private bathroom across the hall. Each room has a large window, bar fridge, coffee table and two chairs. Most guests relax in either the sunroom or the living room. Our oldest son Steve is an accomplished artist (even if we say so ourselves!) Specializing in wildlife. His medium is acrylic on canvas and we display his original work here. We are partially solar powered. We now offer Electric Vehicle charging- NEMA 14-50 receptacle. We really enjoy the people that come to stay with us.... "Enter as guests.....Leave as friends" Cathy & Mark

Dear Karel & Francois. Come practice your English anytime, though I do not think either of you need to practice. We enjoyed your company, and thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. Better weather next time ! Mark & Cathy

This was the perfect B&B visit. I didn’t choose it myself as a friend had done so, therefore had no expectations going in. What Cathy and Mark delivered was beyond my expectations. They are both warm and welcoming and attend to every little detail for their guests. The place
