My husband and I stayed August 02nd for one week. We had a wonderful time.We loved the location, it's 3 minutes to Bruce Caves, 3 mins to town, about 30 to Sauble Beach and 45 to Tobermory, excellent location. It was nice pool, privacy beach and to roasting marshmellows at the daily campfire. The room "6" had a excellent hot... More

We only stayed 2 nights and overall our experience was decent. The hosts are great and make your time there enjoyable. The view from our room was gorgeous and the location is close to everything. The room was dated though and needs to be refreshed. We did have a hot tub on our deck which we made good use of... More

Owners Dave and Evan are excellent hosts. Beautiful resort with great interior designing, rooms very clean. A well known and highly recommended place to stay. Owners accommodated our last minute booking during the peak summer season. We have stayed at this resort a few times and we would not hesitate to return. Looking forward to staying in their newly built... More

We traveled to the Waterview on The Bay because it was near Colpoys Bay. We found that the Waterview was better than expected. Some of the highlights include nightly bon fires at 9PM,beautiful view, an ice machine, comfortable beds, wi-fi, a beach, lush grounds, gracious hosts, and excellent water pressure in the shower. Only areas of concern was the need... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. There was a fridge in the room and free wifi. There is a nice pool and the hotel overlooks the bay, so it is a lovely location. We were told in advance that the only room available was a basic room and we accepted that. We were surprised, to find old,... More

We stayed for 1 night at waterview on the bay in the hot tub unit and it was fantastic. Dave and Evan were amazing hosts. They provided a nice bonfire at night with marshmallows included :) The bed is very comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. The pool was great. The highlight of our night was going... More

For a few dollars more than your average 'hang your hat' motel, Waterview On The Bay provides not only comfy accommodation with fridge and coffee maker, but a heated pool and sun deck, acres of rolling lawns, a clean beach, well-attended gardens accented by stone statuettes and columns and a beautiful view of the lake and bluffs. Dave and Evan... More

We had 6 people and had a cottage for a weekend. I was at first surprised all the cottages are really one big building, but I can't hear my neighbors at all, so that didn't bother me. The place look very new and clean. ( beside that the entire Bruce peninsula is swarming with flies and Mosquitos. ) Nice little... More

I should begin by saying I think we had the nicest room in the place, very large with a King size bed. I had a fabulous sleep over the three days we were there. The room had everything we would want given the fact that it is a ways out of town and Wiarton definitely closes down early. I would... More

The owners were great, and when I told them I was there for business they upgraded my room for free - which was fantastic! The room had everything I needed, with a great view looking out over the lake. I would definitely stay here again.
