Manitoulin Family Vacation

There is so much to do!  

IMG_1837 Relax and Play  

Relax by your cabin while your kids play in the sandbox… swim in the shallow bay or dive off  the floating dock… or play in the…    


          Tree Forts    100% kid-created, there’s the cedar fort,


the cedar fort

the ‘jungle fort’ and the ultra-secret ‘secret fort’…

Catching fish  is easy, just tie on a spoon, or buy worms and minnows from the nearby live bait shop, and cast right off the dock!  IMG_1921

 Finding Fossils on the lakeshore is easy at Hutchinson’s.  The fossils on this shoreline are some of the oldest lifeforms on the planet…ancient coral is like crystalline honeycomb…strange horn-shaped fossils and imprints of microorganisms are plenty!

Swimming in the crystal clear waters Lake Manitou is spring fed, deep and clear.  The water is cool and the shorline is rocky…bring water shoes!  Diving is possible off our floating dock, just 10 m. out.  The bay in front of cabins 3 – 7 is great for wading around.  Children ages 5 – 16 tend to jump in off our dock, or dive in off the nearby government dock.  All within clear view of the central firepit area, so you can relax in the sun and/or shade and still be in eye’s view!

Canada Day Fireworks Celebration

Canada Day Celebration Every year Ryan and Sarah host Canada Day fireworks for the guests. Some locals come and bring extra fireworks. This event seems to get better every year!

Summer wading in the Manitou River

River Wading   The Manitou River starts at Hutchinson’s Cabins. The dam is controlled by the MNR and in the summer levels are low enough to allow fun wading. Children can wade, swim, and net for crayfish, frogs, minnows, mudpuppies and suntans!
