A true northern Ontario cottage experience with extra peace and tranquility. If you can’t relax and recharge here it won’t happen for you. Sublime sunsets. Crystal clear waters. Active marine wildlife.

Response from Carolyn:
Thanks for your thorough review! You're absolutely right about the kayaks; it is a liability/cost issue for us. There are several wonderful restaurants in Tobermory that we recommend. Ancient Cedars Cafe has a fantastic selection of Vegetarian and non-Vegetarian dishes...the burgers are great, servings generous and local beers are available. Coconut Joe's is new to Tobermory. We thoroughly enjoyed our tacos and the location right on the water's edge can't be beat. Big Tub resort has a relaxing patio overlooking Big Tub inlet and is off the beaten track (walkable from the Summer House). They provide a fine selection of local foods as well as craft beer. And for a night out, the Tobermory Brewing Company serves some great beers and a higher end dining experience. Hopefully you can try some of these on your next visit!
