Photo of Robinson House, the hotel on Big Bay Point. It is a long two storey building painted white with a picket fence behind it. Much of the photo consists of an open grassy field full of large stones with trees on the right side. The hotel first came into being when William Robinson, a farmer on Big Bay Point, began taking summer boarders into his farmhouse. This proved profitable enough to convert the home into a two-storey hotel. Edward Adamson eventually took over, but the removal of steamers from the lake proved to be the hotel's downfall.
