Manitoulin has been called "the island that time forgot", and that's just how many of us locals like it. In a world filled with strip malls and fast food franchises, Manitoulin invites you
to slow down and take a breath. Enjoy its natural beauty. Hike on its wilderness trails and go sailing in its many bays. It's the sort of place where multi-generation beef farms are not uncommon,
and where a trip to town means stopping to talk with people who know your name and genuinely care how you're doing. Home to about 14 000 full time residents, Manitoulin's population swells
to around 40 000 during the summer months, when city folks want to take a break and switch to what Manitouliners call "island time". Our population here might be small, but you'd be hard pressed
to find another rural community that's as complete. We've got grocery stores and restaurants, hardware stores, new car dealerships and much more. In fact, the Island has everything needed to make
a life. And that's just what many folks tired of city bustle have done. Whatever you do, if you come here to live, don't change the place too much.
The Garden's Gate is a boutique restaurant located on 15 acres of rural land bordering Blue Jay creek on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. Founders Rose and John Diebolt are looking for the
right sort of new owners for this remarkable business.
