Manitoulin Island Directions

Travel to Manitoulin Island
By car you arrive on the island either by bridge through Little Current or by ferry from Tobermory to South Baymouth.  Below you will find links to detailed driving directions for both routes.

The address for the cottages is:

690B Perivale Rd West
Spring Bay, ON  P0P 2B0

For the Eagle View cottage and


690C Perivale Rd West
Spring Bay, ON  P0P 2B0

For the White Pine Vista cottage.

Note that some GPS’s use Central Manitoulin in place of Spring Bay which is the municipality that Spring Bay is located in.  The cottage is located on the south west end of Lake Kagawong between 5 to 10 minutes from Spring Bay.

Just look for the green and white 690 fire route sign that marks the right-of-way to the cottage. From the ferry dock in South Baymouth Microsoft Streets & Trips says it takes 41 minutes to get to the cottages. We usually give ourselves an hour to make it to the ferry for our assigned time.

Eagle View (4 Bedroom Cottage) is at 690B.  This cottage is the 2nd building you come to on the cottage laneway on the left hand side.  There is a green and white B on the cottage lane way, marking the driveway and the cottage is grey.  Please do not disturb the people in the first house on the left.
White Pine Vista (3 Bedroom Cottage) is at 690C.  This cottage is the last one you come to on the cottage laneway.

One other thing that may help is that the cottages are located between Fred’s Camp and Mac’s Camp.  Both of these camps have some road signs that you can follow from the ferry, or the bridge in Little Current – which may help.

The cottages have electronic locks.  We e-mail you your unique 10 digit code, with instructions.  The code doesn’t become effective until 3:00 PM on the day of arrival. You assign your own shorter code to the lock upon first use.
