Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
A secluded natural beauty, nestled in the valley where luxury and rustic meet. Located on Highway 6, just north of Lion's Head, 20 minutes south of The Bruce National Park, and 25 minutes to Tobermory and the Chi-Cheemaun ferry to Manitoulin Island. Spend the day exploring the area and return to peaceful surroundings on two acres with hammocks for lounging, a screened in gazebo, pond and pergola for you to enjoy. Guest rooms are spacious and Tastefully decorated with ensuites, luxury bedding, towels, toiletries and other amenities to spoil you. A three course breakfast is served each morning with a variety of entre choices. We do our best to use locally grown ingredients for our breakfast as well as home baked granola, yogurt and breads. Coffee, tea station available throughout the day accompanied by something sweet, as well as a guest fridge and microwave area for beverages and snacks. We are minutes to trails and two access points offering shuttle service while hiking for a reasonable rate. Now that we are in our winter season, we invite you to stay and explore the area returning and sitting by the wood stove in our cozy guest area. Please inquire about snowshoes. We are open year round for your memorable getaway.

We visited The Purple Frog on a whim in Nov 2018 after searching places in Bruce Peninsula which would be open during the winter season. We could not have been happier with our stay. Kathy and Marv were beyond hospitable. I was recovering post surgery and just wanted to unwind

All the reviews we read before booking our 2 night stay at the Purple Frog held true. Kathy and Marv were perfect hosts and the property was both lovely and provided easy access to travel to all the attractions on the Bruce Peninsula. We would have no reservations abouts going

Kathy and Marv are the best hosts ever. So engaged with their guests, with lots of suggestions, recommendations, they actually know what they're talking about regarding places to visit, directions, etc. The house is idyllic, modern but super cozy at the same time, I cannot wait
