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.

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 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.

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.
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.
Everything was just as described or better. The kitchen has everthing you would need to cook a gourmet meal. Great place for a family with kids. Looking forward to going back with the gradchildren.
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.
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.
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.
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.
