First time there. It certainly will not be my last. Mark is a very conscientious owner operator. He values you experience. The cabins are rustic but clean and organized. I cannot say enough, except that my wife and I really enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as meeting the other patrons who frequently visit. The fishing is pretty good too. Thank again Mark!

We had our wedding here October, 2016 and rented out the entire place for the weekend!
Words cannot express how happy we were with our entire experience at Timberlane from start to finish! Mark and Laura are the most kind, accommodating and hospitable hosts I’ve ever met.
From amazing views and clean cottages to great food and service, this couple knows what they are doing and their resort has so much to offer!!
They made the whole process so much easier and I would highly recommend the lodge for weddings, family functions, or just a quiet weekend away!!

We weren’t sure what to expect from our first trip to Manitoulin, but choosing Timberlane was a great start. It is rustic, but we were looking to get away for a few days and it certainly fit the bill.

Mark was able to give us great recommendations for every activity we did on the island. We took advantage of most of the meals and weren’t disappointed. The pre-planned menu was a little off-putting for our kids at first, but they ultimately embraced it and tried some new things. Both breakfasts and dinners were excellent, with more than enough to satisfy our appetites.

The center of the island location allowed us to get out and explore, but then get back to Timberlane for a lot of R & R. The Lake was very quiet and the small beach and platform/slide were great for our girls.

After a three day stay at Timberlane Rustic Lodges to attend an on-site wedding, my husband, kids and I cannot wait to plan our trip back next summer. Mark and Laura go above and beyond for their guests in every aspect. Their facilities, activities and the overall setting is more than we could have asked for. I would highly recommend this beautiful lakeside destination.

“Beautiful location we were guest at a wedding. Stayed two nights in the Birch cabin..everything is pretty outdated but I think that is its appeal . The owners were very helpful and took care of anything that was needed….There are apple trees everywhere…did not do any fishing….but apparantly the fish is very good. Would stay here again.”
