We are the owners and take great pride in our vacation home. We have had over 15 years of family reunions in this area .. . priceless wonderful memories which we build on each year.

This is our dream house on a beautiful sandy beach and lots of activities/attractions easily accessible all year round. As we relax by the lake, we find ourselves transported to a world far away from the stress of everyday life, especially when we experience the spectacular Lake Huron sunsets. The view from our property was highlighted in the Ontario West Coast feature in the Globe and Mail on May 17, 2012.

We enjoy relaxing at the beach house or just having fun on the beach. We take long walks on the beach early evening and the lakebreeze is exhilarating. Sometimes, we just laze around and relax and enjoy each others company around the firepit.

BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS

  • 5 of 5
We cant wait to go back again next year. This cottage is fantastic, we traveled with a group of friends and there is nothing more than you can ask for. The cottage is very well equipped with anything you might need and large enough for our group of 8 to wonder easily throughout without banging into one another. The beds were comfortable, more than enough blankets and pillows for everyone, the kitchen had everything your kitchen at home would have. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us we all are looking forward to returning next year.

GREAT COTTAGE RENTAL NEAR GRAND BEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week with our 2 families (four adults and four kids) in this cottage near Grand Bend. The cottage was clean and well taken care of. The kitchen was large and functional. There were multiple decks which overlooked Lake Huron. The kids had a great time with a number of the games in the garage (Foosball, Air Hockey) and the basketball net outside. The family room was a bit musty - but we didn't spend too much time there. The master bedroom was large and had 2 Queen beds (and another convertible bed). The other 3 rooms had double beds. The mattresses were all very comfortable.

Lake Huron and the beach were beautiful. There was a nice deck at the bottom of the stairs near the beach (shared with neighbors but mostly available). There are some rocks in the water - but there is a nice sandbar further down the beach. Overall, we had a great time and we were also lucky to have wonderful weather.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a wonderful time. We hope to rent to you again.

We will definitely look into and resolve the musty family room issue. ( has not been mentioned before as perhaps the windows/doors were kept open)

GREAT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We held our annual girls weekend getaway at this cottage (more like a home!). Everything was exactly as described, very clean and comfortable. The deck off the kitchen was a great spot to have our morning coffee and watch the wildlife!
The beach area is large enough to play all your beach games. The terraine into the water is rocky (large rocks) so bring your water shoes and you'll have no problem.
The neighbours were very friendly and made us feel like the "quiet" ones for a change!
Thanks again for a great weekend away!

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage for a group of five couples. The cottage was very, very clean and equipped with all the ammenties we could ever need ( dishes, glasses, pots and pans, gas grill, beach chairs,etc.) Although we didn't bring any children it was extremely well equipped for babies (baby dishes, high chair, gate) and for kids (garage with toys to play in on rainy days, beach toys, games) I would love to bring my grandchildren here for a week! The view was wonderful and the beach was sandy. The nearby town of Bayfield was quaint and had some nice shops and restaurants. I would definately rent it again, we had a wonderful time!!!

GREAT TIME AT BEACH HOUSE NEAR GRAND BEND

  • 4 of 5
Actually deserves 4 1/2 stars. House was very clean and comfortable and big enough for our group of 10, including 4 kids. Large and well-equipped kitchen. Owners left lots of stuff in the kitchen for us to use. Property well-maintained with lots of areas for relaxing and playing in the front and back yards. The beach and lake were great, even with the rocks. Beach shoes a must. You could really walk for miles on the beach. Friendly neighbours who pointed out the less rocky areas. Lots of stuff around for the kids- toys, DVDs etc. Spectacular sunsets - true!! Grand Bend convenient for shopping, restaurants etc. Went cycling in the Provincial Park about 20 mins. away and noticed there are also hiking trails there. We all had a great time.

JUST OK

  • 2 of 5
The cottage was comfortable, the grounds very nice with a big front and backyard, and large beautiful trees. There is almost nothing to want for – the cottage and kitchen are very well equipped, and there are lots of things and games for the kids. There were some good aspects to the place but overall it wasn’t as convenient or comfortable as we expected and definitely not worth the high-price compared to others in the marketplace. We found the place quite dirty when we arrived, especially the bathrooms. The walk up from beach was more like a trek. As the owner mentions, there are about 30 steps to take to get to the beach but there is also a very steep hill that’s somewhat difficult to negotiate. Using the bbq is awkward because you have to walk through the house and garage to get to it – it’s frustrating if you forget anything and have to go back to the kitchen. There really should be a staircase from the upper deck (shown in the pictures) to the lower deck. Also, the photos and captions are a little misleading. The view was great but you can’t see it from the cottage because of the trees and bushes at the top of the hill. Lastly, the beach (and it's not private) and water are beautiful but with ATVs continuously passing by, it's a little annoying (and frightening if you have kids).

Owner's Response: This is definitely one of our worst rental groups ever who considered themselves young, seasoned and professional renters with older children. We do not want to rent to such a disfunctional immature group again who believe they can do whatever they want with a threat of a review, irrespective of a contract they sign. Our neighbours also had a lot of negative comments about this group which has never happened before.

In our defence, we have never had a house cleanliness issue. These renters arrived earlier than their contracted time and did not allow the cleaner to do her job. They even stated that the house was just fine. Renter than left the house in an unclean state, with fecal matter in the bathrooms. Renters also went against the contract by having additional guests and their negligence caused major damage to outdoor furniture.

We have had very senior renters (and most lane residents are seniors) with very severe illnesses from severe arthritis, heart conditions and cancer who use this common access path/stairs to the beach on a daily basis with no complaint. However, one has to assess their own fitness levels ... and I do not know what to say if walking approx 20 ft to the main deck where a BBQ is normally kept is considered tedious.

The beach in front of our house is private as it is for each of our neighbours. Lane residents have a common pathway (next to our property) for access to the beach. We do not however stop lane residents or vacationers from walking along the beach front as we also like to take long walks on the beach and feel free to use any part of the beach. This is part of country living and sharing.

Sometimes, there are ATV's further along the beach these are supposed to travel along the water-line. We have young toddlers who use the beach frequently and have not had any issues with these.

Future renters, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Thank You
