If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and unwind The Homestead offers peace, nature and wildlife along with private waterfront access for your enjoyment. This is a charming century 3 bedroom farm house. It is a perfect getaway for you and your family. There is waterfront where you can swim and relax. The water is clean and refreshing. It is an easy walk or bike ride to your private beach. We suggest bringing water shoes as the beach is pebbly and can be slippery getting in. At night the stars are breathtaking.

Driving Directions

There are two ways to get to Manitoulin Island. You can drive and cross at the north channel swing
bridge at Little Current or take the Ferry from Tobermorey.
Driving directions from Little Current:

Take Highway 540 to a town called M'Chigeeng [about a 20 minutes] Go straight through that,
approximately 5 minutes later you'll start coming down a steep hill, and you'll see a small country road
that carries on straight when the highway bends 90 degrees to the right at the bottom of the hill. This
country road is called Concession 8. Turn onto this and follow for about 3 kilometers. You will see the
street number 99 and The Homestead sign once you turn into the driveway. If you are arriving late
please let us know and we will make arrangements for the key. Once you arrive, please continue to drive
down the driveway to the right to the main house for the key
