Leslie and Micheal Proulx are from the GTA and both have extensive backgrounds in the restaurant industry. They are excited to make Manitoulin Island their new home and look forward creating memorable experiences for upcoming guests.
Set on 12 acres, this spacious Victorian inspired home is situated in Central Manitoulin Island just 2 kilometres to the town Mindemoya. Minutes from shopping, restaurants, public beaches, a golf course and a visitor centre, Twin Peaks Bed and Breakfast is conveniently close to everything you might need to make your stay a success. The Cup & Saucer Hiking Trail, Bridel Veil Falls and Providence Bay Beach are only a 15-20 minute drive away.
Upon entering the guest foyer, you'll find a beautiful parlour with a piano. Plush furniture, lavish drapes and wall coverings create a uniquely cozy atmosphere. There is a bookshelf stocked with Manitoulin tourist information along with a large map of the island. As we do ask you to remove outdoor footwear before going upstairs, you may want to bring your favourite slippers or indoor shoes for comfort.
The foyer features a buffet table with a water dispenser filled with reverse osmosis water, a Keurig coffee machine and a selection of complimentary coffee for your enjoyment. Please help yourself to the tea cart in the dining room and enjoy a hot cup of tea anytime.
The graceful dining room is where breakfast is served between 8:00 am and 9:30 am every morning. Guests have their choice between two freshly made hot breakfasts along with fresh fruit salad, toast, locally made preserves, juices, coffee and tea. Vegan and gluten free options are also available. (Please give us lots of advance notice)
The guest room area on the second floor includes a large bookshelf with nearly 300 DVD movies and an assortment of games for complimentary use by guests.
The front verandah boasts a stunning view of Lake Mindemoya. It's a serene and restful place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee or unwind at the end of the day, while taking in the gorgeous Manitoulin sunsets.
Manitoulin has been called "the island that time forgot", and that's just how many of us locals like it. In a world filled with strip malls and fast food franchises, Manitoulin invites you to slow down and take a breath. Enjoy its natural, untouched beauty from shore to shore. Hike on the numerous wilderness trails, go sailing or fishing in its many lakes and bays or relax on gorgeous sand beaches. Take in the rich First Nations culture by attending one of the many Pow-Wows or by visiting a Native Cultural Centre or Art Gallery. Summer is not the only time to visit Manitoulin Island. Thousands come each year for hunting, ice fishing and snowmobiling. Home to about 14 000 full time residents, Manitoulin's population swells to around 40 000 during the summer months, when city folks want to take a break and switch to what Manitouliners call "island time". Our population here might be small, but you'd be hard pressed to find another rural community that's as complete. We have grocery stores, hospitals, restaurants, hardware stores, farmer's markets, gift shops, golf courses and much more. In fact, the Island has everything needed to make your next summer or winter getaway an enjoyable and memorable one!
