This is an ideal spot in Red Bay because you can walk out for a long way in the water and it's often only ankle or knee deep which is great for kids. It's mostly soft sand and because of the depth stays quite warm. A big plus for us.
The cottage was nice, location is hard to beat. We would definitely go back.

We had a great stay at this cottage! Very well layed out and cozy! Lots of room for kids and our grandsons loved the tree house and just playing on the sand. The owners were great and made sure everything was as it should be!! Highly commendable! The view of Lake Huron and those sunsets make this an ideal place for relaxation. We really liked the privacy and the four muskoka chairs overlooking the lake were well used!! Can't wait to make our reservation for next year!!
Shawn, we are pleased you had a good stay at the cottage overall. With respect to the cleaning, our normal, extremely meticulous, person who checks the cottage between rentals had a wedding to attend that weekend. Clearly the substitute person we managed to hire was not up to standard. We thank you for letting us know. And apologize for the inconvenience to you. It’s very important to us to present a cottage that is in spotless condition for our guests… and this is normally exactly what happens. The Owner / N. Pratt

This cottage exceeded our expectations. The cottage itself was clean, stocked with everything we needed, and even had suggestions on what to do in the area. The shore is very ,very shallow and sandy, perfect for our young children. We had 4 young children with us and everyone had a wonderful time.

We had very good experience staying in the cottage. It is very kids friendly and our twins had their first cottage experience. If we have chance we will book the cottage again next summer.
Great Family Cottage

Great Cottage. We loved it!
Perfect for children. My two kids (2yrs and 5yrs) loved it (and so did we). The water is shallow and the bottom of the lake is sandy. They also liked that we could walk to the park and to the ice cream store.
Queit area, beautiful cottage, great sunsets. What more could you want?
