It is a bitter-sweet goodbye for Alain, Nathalie and Léa as we prepare to leave Providence Bay and beautiful Manitoulin island for November 1st, 2016! We have LOVED starting the Auberge Inn hostel in 2010 and meeting thousands of guests from ALL around the world! Introducing them to our piece of paradise… many of our guests actually became our friends on their repeat visits! We never could have imagined this! In our final days as we prepare for the changing of the guard with new owners Serge and Heidi, we would like to wish them MUCH continued success! We hope that they have as much FUN,  fulfilment, pride and accomplishment as we did for the past 6 years! Back in 2010, we were the only NEW business in Providence Bay, but 6 years later there some new businesses and new people in the community-which is GREAT! We will dearly MISS the pristine beach and crystal clear waters of Lake Huron, the beautiful boardwalk, superbe sunsets, amazing playground for our daughter, the natural dunes and milkweed in abundance for the hundreds of monarchs, the Providence Bay Beach yoga and the community that opened their hearts and arms for us as we embarked on this new adventure!

Amuser- vous et profitez bien de la belle vie d’aubergiste!


We will be back to visit them and beautiful Providence Bay!
