Brightside Cottage is our family cottage and conveniently located on the outskirts of Grand Bend, in charming Huron Woods, a quiet, family oriented enclave of executive homes on large, private lots, and a short walk to the beautiful beaches of Lake Huron and the Pinery Provincial Park. All the excitement that Grand Bend has to offer is a quick car ride away, or for the slightly more ambitious, your daily walk or run. If you are looking for a great family vacation near the lake or some down time with friends and loved ones, the Brightside Cottage is for you. We have created a warm and welcoming space for our family to enjoy and hope that you will too. Loud noise, bachelor and bachelorette parties will not be tolerated by us or our neighbours. Available for rent year round, with minimum weekly rentals during the summer months.

Although originally from Exeter and Grand Bend, we relocated to Bermuda over 14 years ago. We always loved spending our summers in and around Grand Bend, and with our families still in the area, we decided to buy the Brightside Cottage in the summer of 2014. We have lots of fun there, visiting friends and family and taking in all the sights and sounds Grand Bend and Lambton Shores have to offer. Whether its a walk on the beach, going to the flea market in the summer, or curling up by the fire in the winter, there is never a shortage of things to do.
Andrew purchased this house in 2014
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your fantastic cottage. We really
enjoyed our time there and found it very relaxing. Your cottage is
beautifully decorated, clean and well taken care of. It was a comfortable
and lovely place to spend our vacation. It had all the amenities we needed
and we especially loved the nice kitchen and harvest table, the pool table
and the deck! You are very fortunate to have your cottage in such a beautiful
location and so near the amazing beaches and community of Grand Bend.
Hopefully we can revisit in the future.
Best stay we have ever had! 100% recommended we will definitely be coming back this summer.
Thank you for the wonderful cottage/home
We absolutely loved this rental and would not hesitate to recommend it. It was very clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped. The beach is amazing and the neighborhood is lovely, full of nature with deer, fox, and many types of birds. There is a bike path to ride to the shops and restaurants in Grand Bend. The owners went above and beyond in accommodating us. It truly felt like a home away from home.
My family and I rented this beautifully kept home, to attend a family Christmas reunion close by. We were 6 adult and 1 baby. The home was perfect. It was clean, cozy and even decorated for the holiday season. The area was a close walk to the beach and we even got to see deer in the back yard, while we ate breakfast! The surrounding area is all naturalized and scenic. But close to Grandbend, if you needed any supplies. We enjoyed our weekend away very much. The owners are delightful, hospitable and efficient with everything. It was a stress free holiday, all around. I wouldn't hesitate to plan a vacation here anytime of the year!
We found Brightside Cottage to be the best "home away from home" we have ever stayed in! There was nothing missing for any of our needs or wants! Even for the 7 month old little guy. The walk to the beach (15 to 20 minutes depending on how fast the kids walked or were pulled in the wagon) was a little longer than we were used to, especially on the way back, but well worth it! Great beach! Best BBQ going!! LOL!! Looking forward to going back next year!
We went for 3 nights mid June with our family to celebrate our 40th anniversary.
Andrew's in-laws greeted us with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for our anniversary and were so friendly and helpful. They showed us the cottage or I should say home and answered any questions.
It was beautiful and everything we needed was there. We spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the weather and the comfy patio furniture. Had a great BBQ.
It was great that we had our own bathrooms and the bedrooms were great.
The kitchen had everything we needed and more. There was a large dining table which was perfect for dinner and playing games.
We walked to the private beach and took about 15 minutes. It was narrow but a lovely sandy beach.
It is called "Brightside Cottage" - a very appropriate name as it was bright and cheery and had sunny yellow walls. Very inviting and comfortable.
Anytime I emailed Andrew he replied immediately and answered any questions I had. Very helpful and very much appreciated.
We plan on going back next year.
We were very happy with the Brightside Cottage and enjoyed our week at this location. It was located in a quiet area and we had all conveniences at our disposal. The walk to the lake was very pleasant and the sunsets were beautiful. We would highly recommend this cottage and would love to come back and stay again. We had one problem which was taken care of very quickly and we were impressed with the care and attention we were given. Thank you for a great week!
Brightside Cottage is conveniently located near a number of local attractions, including: Pinery Provincial Park, Dale's Antiques, Grand Bend Flea Market, Huron Country Playhouse, Grand Bend Yacht Club, Grand Bend Motorplex, a number of golf courses, walking, hiking and cycling trails outside your front door, and lots of shopping, dining and nightlife in Grand Bend. And of course, the beach.
