What’s a South Georgian Bay getaway without all the activities? Something we love about Penny’s is not only their convenient location to all the fun, but that they have activities for you to participate in right at their doorstep. When staying here, hop on a complimentary bike and hit the picturesque trails of Georgian Bay. When you’re back from biking, you can participate in some friendly competition at the bocce ball court! Later at night, cozy up outside by the fire pit. Other activities that will be close by to you during your stay include paddling, climbing, boating, golf, Scandinave Spa, Purple Hill Lavendar Farm and Scenic Caves Nature Adventures! There’s no shortage of fun.

Fur-Baby Friendly

This may be the best feature yet-your fur babies don’t have to stay at home. You can bring your pup on this adventure with you! Penny’s Motel believes that your four legged friends should be able to tag along on all the fun in your life, and this is why they allow pets to stay. With a small set of rules in place to be respectful to other guests, you’re free to have the fluffiest stay ever!
