About Bettie VanGils Kloet
I (Bettie) am originally from this area and my husband Rob and I are really happy to be back in the beautiful vacation area of Grey Highlands. We love to cross country ski, which is why we chose this location only two minutes from Sawmill- one of the best groomed cross country ski tracks in Ontario! We own and host several short term furnished rentals in Hamilton area as well, and love the experience of interacting with our guests through the booking process. We have three adult children and one cat. We also love to bicycle, and we love cycling the roads in this area.
Bettie VanGils Kloet purchased this House in 2017
Why Bettie VanGils Kloet chose Georgian Bluffs
We chose this house because of the property. The creek is so peaceful, and sitting by the fire at night listening to the little rapids settles the soul like nothing else. We fell in love with the yellow Shallow Lake brick as well. The community of Shallow Lake is super friendly, and the general store owner Leanne keeps the store stocked with all those essentials you may have forgotten.
What makes this House unique
The shady trees, the peaceful stream, the birds, and the light movement through the house all provide interest. The proximity to Sauble Beach allows you to enjoy a busy day at the beach but then offers a quiet and shady place to relax in a beautiful home. The two minute drive to Sawmill Nordic Center means you can enjoy skiing several times a day!

A Million Stars & Serene Setting.
Our second time at this comfortable and worry free home where you can truly relax. Very well equipped and feels like home. Visited Spirit Rock and Bruce's Caves just a short drive away. We had a lovely time.
A great mix of modern convenience and vintage character!
The perfect location and great modern conveniences fully decked out with modern appliances and a fully-equipped kitchen. Are Hostess Betty was very organized and they're readily available for communications or questions and it was very accommodating. The house was very clean and yes the rooms are a little small but it's no issue when there are so many things to do near the cottage. There was a clean BBQ and the creek in the backyard was an added bonus for both a morning coffee or an afternoon play time with the kids. You're only minutes from Sauble Beach and Owen Sound and about 1 hour from Tobermory. A great little spot and would not hesitate to book again.
Terrific summer getaway!
Our experience with this property and the owner was excellent.
The house was very clean and nicely appointed. It’s within driving distance to many attractions. I think this house would make a great getaway no matter the season as it is close to beaches, walking trails, ski trails, and shopping.
Finally, our interaction with the owner was very good. She was organized, kind, and helpful.
My husband and I would love to visit this property again.
Thanks Sarah, You are most welcome back anytime. Just send me your preferred dates for next summer!
Cozy great little coottage

Serene natural setting
Gracious host. Comfortable and worry free stay. Everything you need available to have a great time.
Thanks so much Susan. We look forward to your next stay coming up.
Such a sweet yellow brick cottage with all the comforts of home awaiting you after a day out.
We enjoyed our mid-week getaway immensely. Creekside cottage has all the amenities and comforts of home with the added benefits of being close to nordic ski trails, conservation parks, Sauble and South Hampton beaches, and eclectic Owen Sound (10 to 15 min drive). Tobermory is an hour away. We enjoyed them all and want to visit again to do more exploring. Coming back to the cottage after a day out is a pleasure as you can put your feet up with a glass of wine in the sunroom off the kitchen while dinner is being cooked (or pizza being ordered - popular pizza place around the corner with a mercantile general store beside it if you need anything else (3 minute walk). There is a picnic table a bbq, and a campfire pit if you want to stay outdoors a little longer. We noticed the stars were extra bright and numerous and enjoyed hearing the gurgling of the creek as we sat outside. The 10 minute walk to Shallow Lake is a nice way to begin or end your day. We are definitely coming back with friends and family.The host is super helpful and very responsive. We highly recommend this place!
thanks Marcella for the awesome review. I want to go now! :) Really appreciate the details!
A short drive takes you into Owen Sound, a city of 25,000 which is enjoying real growth in the arts sector. There are multiple music festivals, the most famous of which is the Summerfolk Music Festival, and the weekly farmers' market features many local artists.
