Discover Vacation Rentals has properties in two of Canada’s great natural vacation spots. Canmore, Alberta and Lake Kagawong on Manitoulin Island. Both locations allow you to great access to the outdoors from the properties.
We love to travel ourselves and appreciate knowing about the properties we are staying at before we pay for our accommodation. To that end we try to provide a lot of important information up front about our vacation rental properties. Through photos, by answering Frequently Asked Questions online, and by showing quotes from previous renters.

Manitoulin Island is the largest fresh water island in the world. It is situated on the northern edge of Lake Huron. Being part of the Niagara Escarpment there are some spectacular scenic lookouts on the island. A nature lover’s paradise, a boater’s dream. Recognized internationally for the abundance of wild life, natural beauty and excellent sailing conditions. The island has a permanent population of about 11000 people. At 2,766 square kilometers in size it is 5 times larger than Toronto with less than 0.5% the population. There are some restaurants and shops to be found on the island but the main reason for coming here is to enjoy nature or get away from it all.
The area has been the retreat of people who like privacy for a long time. Take President Franklin D. Roosevelt, or Al Capone, for example, when they wanted to get away they came to the island.
