We stayed here for a family reunion just prior to Canada Day in June for four nights in #28, the only three bedroom cottage. I have to say, the service was outstanding and this cottage was just what our family of four (children aged 2 and 6) needed. The interior of the cottage has just enough decorating to make it...

We recently spent two nights at Waterview on the Bay with our two small children and our dog. We pulled up and from the road it looks a little dated but once we got to our room Deluxe Queen Lake View it was lovely. Two queen beds were comfy, the room had a good sized fridge for our snacks and... More

We stayed in a cottage here for Canada Day and it was absolutely fabulous!! The kids loved the pool and the hot tub on the deck. They tried their hand at horseshoes and hung out on the pier and at the gazebo. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful and accomodating. The cottage was outstanding -- modern, comfortable, clean and cozy.... More

Charming Unit with pink painted walk outside the door. A tad small but adequate. Superior view of the bay. The owners were polite and thoughtful however respectfully respected our privacy. Wine glasses in room which we have noted is a rarety. The place needs a breakfast room to be complete. Besides the food, it is a good opportunity to get... More

We booked 2 rooms as a last minute stop-over on the way back from Tobermory. The hotel overlooks the lake and has a large grassed area leading down to the shore, where there is a small sandy beach. Rooms were OK, bathroom good (recently refurbished?) - facilities in the room were OK, we really appreciated the large fridge. We also... More

I recently stayed at Waterview by the Bay. After reading the reviews and seeing the photos I was really anticipating a great locale. While the location is beautiful my room did not match the scenery. While the room was clean and the bathroom and bed ok, the bedding, towels and furnishing were old and somewhat sad. The room had a... More

This is our third time staying and we absolutely love it here. Our family makes a point of visiting whenever we are in town. Evan and Dave are fantastic hosts, and have always made a point of making our stay special. A quiet property located on the Georgian Bay with a pool, sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits and plenty of... More

My friends and I rented the 28-Cottage instead of the 24-Cottage ; Best decision we made that day. Evan and Dave were very accommodating and extremely friendly. The sunset view is completely stunning. Sand for beach volleyball court is so soft. So many more positive things I could say but the point is we had a GREAT weekend and Waterview... More
