We went on a mini vacation to the Waterview on The Bay Resort for a relaxing trip and we were so surprized. When we arrived to the resort we were greeted and told all about the resort and what they had to offer so very nice . We than went to our room and WOW what a view of the... More

Definitely not what we expected from its website and from the reviews. The grounds and the view are beautiful and the owners friendly but the hotel itself is going to seed. Outside paint is peeling, stairs are wobbly and handrails loose. Our room was filled with mismatched furniture that had chipped paint and loose drawers. The carpet was dingy. The... More

From the outside it may not look pleasant but the rooms are amazing. I would go as far as saying that this is better than some of the marriott and holiday inns. This place is family owned and they have kept the rooms in immaculate condition. We had the kingbed room with jacuzzi and view of the water. The room... More

Decided to plan a last minute trip to Tobermory & of course all cottages are booked much in advance, so stumbled across Waterview! Must say I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful location and view from the room, absolutely stunning. Did not spend too much time in the room, but it was enough for our purposes, modest & clean. The... More

When visiting the Tobermory area, you will find it you must book early or you are out of luck. This place is in Wiarton, about 50 minutes from Tobermory. This is a famous groundhog's residence in Ontario Canada. The Waterview is VERY reasonable price place! You have a view of bay connected to Georgian Bay. You have private balcony. You... More

First of all, Waterview on the Bay is operated by two wonderful people ready to help and provide best service they can. We got stuck without gas in the middle of the night and Waterview was 1 mile away... So we walked to it and despite the full vacancy, they let us to spend the night at their rec hall.... More

My BF and I stayed here for a few days. What a wonderful place it is. Very relaxing and quiet, the hosts Evan and Dave we're very friendly and were always there. Evan even sat with us around the fire at night. The room was beautiful and very clean with a spectacular view. We enjoyed our stay so much that... More

My son and I stayed here for two nights July 15-17th 2015. Dave and Evan were fantastic! Even my son wanted to hang out with them. Marshmallows by the fire was a nice touch and it was a must visit for my son every night. The view was amazing room was nice. Very central to everything around!! Highly recommend it.

We stayed in Cottage #25 for only one night due to last minute booking. I felt very lucky for getting this reservation. The cottage is better than my expectation, even after reading all the positive comments. Love their private beach and garden. Room is very nice and clean with all thoughtful arrangements. I can tell how much time and effort... More
