Hubby and I stayed at The Bluewater (on the beach!) for one night while touring along the Lake Huron coast, the 1st week of June. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a large balcony overlooking the lake. Spectacular sunset, which could be viewed from the beach, the balcony and in our room through the large windows. The room...

The Bluewater is the BEST place to stay in Southampton Ontario. It's only a few feet off the sand of the beach and only a couple of doors down from the main street of town. Downtown is only a short one block walk away. Plus there is a small park at either end of the street for you to enjoy.... More

After reading the reviews before we went I did have some expectations. Wow This place is amazing. We were able to stay in the top floor with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and expansive balcony. This place proved to be a haven for us. THe weather was fabulous which also helped. Anything we wanted was already in place in the... More

This property is like going back in time....to the 70's. The decor has not been changed since. The rooms are spotless clean though and the view is unparalleled for sunsets. Great value for the money and the rooms are Suites with kitchen. I do not recommend the cottages. They are small, dated cabins.

Rustic and simple rooms. Very clean with a great view. Relaxing, just like we wanted. There was no food services available but we knew this before arriving. Close to downtown and the local beach. Plan to return for a longer stay.

Since there are no current reviews, here's mine. I have been coming back to the Bluewater every year for at least the last 5 years. Sometimes a week, sometimes only a few days. I always get one of the cottages. Might be older, but I call that rustic! What is important to me is that it is very clean, affordable... More

I saw this review in TA and wondered if Bluewater was still operating as the review was a little old. After an email and some internet investigation I can confirm that they are indeed still operating. What a fantastic location for watching the sun set over Lake Huron. Whilst the decoration and furniture is in need of updating I can... More

Found the Bluewater in Southampton on-line and got a reservation for Labor Day weekend. What a great little find, right on the beach of Lake Huron. We had a small cottage that was older, but clean and cozy. There were four cottages and a motel with about 6 or 8 units. The Bluewater is within walking distance of many restaurants... More
