About the Owner

The Ludwig family has owned this property since 1974. It is our private home and we spend most of the spring and fall living on the island. Our extended family operates Camp Bil-O-Wood, www.bil-o-wood.com, a summer children's camp located in Northern Ontario. Because we are in camp for much of the summer we usually rent 4 to 6 weeks each summer to families from all over the northeast. Since this is our three season home we are very particular about the families with whom we share it. Many of our families have been renting with us for more than 20 years. They feel like Bluff Island is their summer home and they treat it that way. Those who share our home are responsible for leaving the facility in the same excellent condition in which they found it upon arrival. We have no cleaning service because of our island location and ask that families clean it when they leave and treat the home like it is their own. This process has worked extremely well for the past 40 years.

We hope you like what you see and will contact us to see about openings for 2015. season. We have not had any availability since 2011 but do have few openings for 2015. Please see the calendar.
