Waterfront

Jiigbiig is a very private and quiet location with close to 1000 feet of private waterfront on 5 acres of hardwood forest. Come here if you want to relax. Visit if you value peace and quiet. The pace on Manitoulin Island is much slower than many other cottage areas and three cars together constitutes a traffic jam. Cottage is two-story open concept three bedrooms, two bathes (one en-suit to master), two decks, one of which is over 450 sq ft., limestone fireplace, pine cathedral ceiling. Fully and comfortably furnished. Situated on a small crystal clear lake we have almost 1000ft. of shoreline to explore. If you are interested in swimming, note that the water in Big Lake is much warmer than in the Great Lakes, so many more comfortable swimming days. The little visitors seem to enjoy catching crayfish and frogs. Come by road or take the ferry from Tobermory. Jiigbiig means "AT THE WATERFRONT" in Ojibwa Want more pics? Go to: www.jiigbiig.ca

Manitoulin Island is the largest freshwater island on the planet. It is scenic, quiet and safe, boasting many natural wonders. There is an abundance of local culture including Native Culture. Fishing, golfing, bicycling, hiking, hunting, bird watching, star gazing, all water-sports, and snowmobiling are all on the list of things to do. All of these fall right behind good old relaxation. Often the only sound is the rustle of leaves. We can't always pick up cell calls (driving or at work) so leave a message and I'll call back, thanks.

Jiigbiig is the perfect retreat getaway. On a most gorgeous piece of land, Ken and Lorena have thought of every possible thing to make your vacation peaceful and stress-free. Big Lake is lovely and quiet, the property is very private, and you can spend days just enjoying the cottage - swimming, relaxing at the private beach, enjoying bonfires, resting in the hammocks.

The cottage itself is spaceous, full of beauty (big stone fireplace!), fully equipped (so nice not to have to bring linens, have a fully stocked kitchen, and access to laundry). As someone with a bad back, I was so grateful for the high quality beds/mattresses. Property managers keep the cottage immaculate and give you a tour of all amenities.

We are so grateful for this oasis, and so thrilled that we happened to find it here on Cottages in Canada. For more than eight years, we have been renting cottages in different places, hoping to find the one that we would like to return to. It never happened until now. Within two days, all four of us had stated that we would like to return to JiigBiig.

You won't be disappointed! Just wait until we get our booking confirmed please....
