Welcome to the peaceful solitude that is Michael's Bay. We are a quick 25 minute drive from the ferry in South Baymouth allowing you ample time to catch the sunset out on our deck overlooking the magical vistas of the Bay.

The chalet is non-smoking. We are about 120 feet from the water with a beach that is typical of Manitoulin with its many fossilized rocks interwoven with sand and native plants. There are sandy areas along the shore allowing easy access to the water. Exquisite sand beaches are located a short drive or a beautiful walk along the shore to the Carter Bay Dunes. In the winter the cross country skiing is great,the roads are very well maintained for easy access.

The town of Mindemoya is 20 minutes away and has a well-stocked grocery store, pharmacy and liquor store (all together) as well as a veterinarian, hospital, library, great hardware store (hunting and fishing supplies), 3 restaurants, an internet cafe and a bank. Closer to home is the smaller town of Tehkummah with Ward's a great old general store, gas station, post office and library, and a good little fish and chip place.

We will consider pets but this must be by prior arrangement. There are skunks, coyotes and wolves that may pose a concern for pets.

The heart of the chalet is the great room (kitchen-dining room-living room) with large panoramic windows with southern exposure and doors opening onto the deck and the awesome view of the bay. Manitoulin is one of the sunniest locations in Ontario, so even in the winter it feels like summer in our chalet.

Also on the main floor are 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, bathroom with a tub and shower and a laundry room. Our kitchen is equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans and cutlery. There is a dining room table with 6 chairs. All rooms have their own electric heat thermostats.

Downstairs via an outside entrance there is a bedroom with 2 single beds, bathroom, living area with a TV and DVD; ( no satellite or cable).


Our chalet is on a 1 acre lot with plenty of waterfront. There is a spacious front lawn between the chalet and the water. The lot is bordered on 3 sides with a variety of coniferous and deciduous trees. Deer are frequent visitors as are a wide variety of birds and waterfowl.

Lovely neighbors live quietly on either side. Enjoy the fire pit on the beach.We all enjoy the tranquility of our Bay so please no sea doos. In Michael's Bay Park (just 2 minutes away) there is a public boat launching ramp for easy access to the Bay and Lake Huron. Our Bay is ideal for canoeing, snorkelling, kayaking and swimming. The peace and quiet of our wilderness retreat is very soothing and ideal for those who wish to experience nature at her best.
