First B&B experience and it was absolutely amazing. The owners (Shirin & Bob) were very welcoming, hospitable and excellent cooks (mmm). Very quiet and gorgeous location. Extra clean rooms, bathrooms, and common areas. Great place to actually sit and relax. I will go back, and I highly recommend that others give it a go as well. You won't be disappointed!

Many different items to choose from, including local... More

Delightful oasis at the end of the road. Wonderful people, comfortable digs and good food. People were coming to dine from Gore Bay so I recommend calling ahead if you are looking for a good meal. Also, it's the only place to eat!

We had the pleasure of staying at Meldrum Bay Inn for 2 nights (next time it will be longer!). The bay is gorgeous and the town is nothing but peaceful and beautiful. The lighthouse nearby has remarkable sunsets. But more important was the hospitality. From the moment we stepped into the Inn, we were greeted by Shirin's warmth and her... More

It was our first visit to the Manitoulin, and we had four days to experience the island. We could not have had a better experience than our stay in Meldrum Bay Inn.

My husband and I travelled to Manitoulin Island and had lunch at the Meldrum Inn and Restaurant. The service was excellent, with the waitress checking in on us to make sure we were good. The food was delicious, very good portions and hot. Would definitely recommend and come back.
