Located on prestigious Lake Huron, our luxury waterfront vacation house features hundreds of feet of sandy beach and swimming in beautiful clear water. Some areas may have a few rocks/pebbles depending on what the weather brings in but these only add to the beauty of the beach. Come and experience the spectacular Lake Huron sunsets.

Sun worshipper or shade lover you will find them here.

Relax on the outdoor deck, 2 patios or 2 balconies while watching the sun set over the lake. Enjoy each others company or dance and sing around the firepit.

This beach house is fully air conditioned and heated during the winter.

With 4 bedrooms and a much needed 3rd bathroom, you can enjoy the kind of magnificent space and layout that makes for a fabulous vacation that offers privacy to each person. The bedrooms have been comfortably designed to be away from the main activity areas. It's easy for anyone in the group to get away to relax or read when they want to, turn in before the rest of the group in the evening or to sleep late in the morning.

Beds are as follows:

Master Bedroom - 2 Queen size beds and 1 double Futon, ensuite bathroom, gas fireplace, balcony and beautiful view of lake.

Bedroom 2 - double bed

Bedroom 3 - double bed

Bedroom 4 - double bed

2 additional bathrooms located near Bedroom 2, 3 and 4

Double Sofa bed

Our kitchen is fully loaded with all appliances and service for 12. A separate dining area is surrounded by a superb view of Lake Huron. This is the perfect spot to entertain, and features an expandable table with seating for 12. Enjoy the beauty of this magnificent part of the world, while having a meal.

Our family room features a wood fireplace and a beautiful view of the lake. There is a TV, DVD/CD player and VCR, a small library and also a few board games.

Our games area, a converted garage, features a convertible pool table, table tennis and air hockey tables suitable for young children.

The front of the property is enclosed by a treed fence and offers a wonderful secure playing area for children and also has a badminton/volleyball net. This area has a small patio and offers an alternative on windy days. The beach is easily accessible via the field next to our property that gently slopes down to only 30 wooden steps. There is a small deck at the top of the stairs. Note that the steps provide a good barrier to the lake for younger children.

We are conveniently located in the St Joseph's community, a few minutes drive between Grand Bend and Bayfield.

Sun, rain or snow, there is always something to do. Enjoy the golfing, restaurants, antique shops, drag racing, nightlife, marinas and lots more fun at these popular summer vacation destinations or just stay at our beach house and enjoy the privacy.

Only full week bookings (Fri - Fri) in the Summer. Weekend/short stay bookings during the rest of the year.

Note that this is a cottage and not a 5 star resort. For health reasons, we have maintained chemical free lawns and gardens. We have let the trees, wildflowers and plants grow to preserve the cottage ambience, but still perform weekly routine maintenance. Our indoor and outdoor furniture is practical and user friendly. We are very proud to maintain most of our annual renters who love the traditional cottage feel at a wonderful location. That is a true luxury in this day and age. This is not the cottage for you if you are looking for a perfectly manicured property with the trendiest furniture.

Please contact us if you have any other questions as we cannot detail everything in this description but do want this to be a good fit for your group.

Thank You

About Lorraine

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.

Why Lorraine chose Ontario

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Expensive, not worth the money

  • 1 of 5

Very disappointed. Have rented a number of homes in this area and would not recommend this one.

Owner's Response: At least 70% OF OUR RENTERS ARE REPEAT RENTERS for over 4-5 yrs, some even 8 yrs. Some are seasoned renters and they definitely believe this cottage rental provides value for their money. LOOK AT THE OTHER REVIEWS, MOST ARE 5 STAR RATINGS. They have also recommended us to family and friends, hence our high good occupancy rate. We have priced our rental based on other similar BEACH FRONT properties IN A FANTASTIC AND BEAUTIFUL LOCATION in the area, the current cost of living and all the additional amenities that are specific to this location. Please look at our description on the main page. Our rental costs include cleaning and taxes and there are no other hidden/fine print costs and renters know all costs before they confirm. Not sure what daily rate you are expecting for a group of 8-12 people but given the high demand even during off season, I think most people have done the math/cost effectiveness and realise they are getting value for their money for a large group. The fact that we normally get asked to hold and book summer weeks at least 1 year in advance speaks for itself. We normally rent to larger extended families (8-10 people) who share the cost. Although there are quite a few smaller 4-5 member families who also love to rent it each year just for themselves. Future renters, feel free to call or email us if you have any other questions and we will be happy to talk to you.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up by Sebago Lake in Maine, and my wife on the shore of southern Massachusetts, so now that we live here in the boring flatlands of central Ohio, we are always looking to stay by water on our summer vacations. We discovered the glory of Grand Bend last summer on a whim, staying at the resort down the road. We wanted a proper house for this summer's trip, and this sure fit the bill! We took our two daughters (14 and 8), and had the best vacation together we can remember. They each got to have their own bedroom, and my wife and I enjoyed the ginormous master bedroom upstairs. Slept like a rock every night to the sound of the waves and wind. Perfect weather the whole week, campfire every night, swimming every day, didn't watch TV once. I'm the cook in the family, and their kitchen was the best equipped of any rental house we've ever stayed in. There are two markets 10 minutes away in Grand Bend, an LCBO and Beer Store, Pharmacy, etc., so all the supplies anyone would need can be had close by, and just enough gift shops to keep the girls happy. :-) All the neighbors we met were extremely friendly, especially Bob next door, who is a hoot. This house comes with many extras we've never had before with beach rentals, the games in the garage, beach toys and chairs down in the shed, etc., which was a big plus. I'm slightly perplexed by the negative comments about the stairs some people have made. I will refrain from calling those people whiners (oops, I said it), but EVERY house along this stretch of shoreline has stairs. In fact, this one had the fewest of any of the houses we saw during our nightly walks up and down the beach. We went to Pinery Park one day, and there were also 30 stairs down to the beach from each of the parking areas...just the nature of the area's geography. My youngest daughter, who is deaf and has some breathing issues, had no problems with them at all. Took the family parasailing (as we did twice last year), which I highly recommend, and of course the wonderful Starlight Drive In movie theater. The only negative part of the trip was having to leave, of course. But there is always next year! I wish this site let people upload guest photos like Trip Advisor does, but I well send some to the owner for her to add here if she likes.

Fantastic Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This location was absolutely beautiful. We had one of the best girls weekends ever. Lots of room and plenty of chairs outside. Anything we needed was there. The lake was so warm but you did have to be careful due to rocks.

We had a great time and would love to return next year.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Beach House for a week with our daughters and three grandchildren. It is a great place to stay with the extended family! The kids loved it! They played for hours on the beach, in the garage with all the toys and air hockey, and in the grassy back yard. We loved to take them to the Beach in Grand Bend, and also the playground in Bayfield. We love the town of Bayfield! The house is clean, well maintained and has enough space for a large group. We had a wonderful vacation.

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.
