Why Janet & Joe chose Penetanguishene
We've spent many summers swimming along this beautiful stretch of Georgian Bay. We hope you agree that Wildwood is a hidden gem from which to enjoy your vacation and for those who have stayed here before when it was owned by our friends, we look forward to welcoming you back.
What makes this Chalet unique
When we first saw Wildwood, we were charmed by the A-frame cottage, complete with wishing well and bird feeders, nestled among the trees. It felt immediately inviting, comfortable and relaxing. And being so close to the gorgeous sandy beach was a huge draw.

We had a wonderful stay at Wildwood. When we arrived, we were stunned by how beautiful the trees around the chalet looked, all covered in snow. We immediately dropped off our stuff so that we could get some snowshoeing in on the beach, which we were happy to find was, as advertised, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the chalet. The beach had a great view of Collingwood’s Blue Mountains to the West, and Christian Island to the Northwest. On our second day, we went cross-country skiing at Awenda Provincial Park, just a few km away. The groomed trails include beautiful views of Georgian Bay and it may be because it was cold, but we had the park almost entirely to ourselves.
The chalet was super clean and cozy, and had all the amenities we needed, including the dryer which was handy for our damp ski pants. And we appreciated the binder that lists all the activities and places to see in the region. We were up there to ski and snowshoe so didn’t have time to do much more, but we did check out the fine food store in the nearby town of Lafontaine and bought some delicious home-made scones and cookies. Thank you, Janet and Joe for providing us with all the information we needed before our stay, and for making our stay so comfortable. We will definitely be coming back and can’t wait to be on that beach in the summer!
Thank you, Steve! We’re happy that you had a great stay and look forward to your next visit.
