In an age where building too close to the water is not allowed, the Balm Beach Resort is a throw back to the 60's when none of that mattered. More of a motel than resort, this quaint spot has a dozen or so rooms, BBQ area, fire pit and obligatory 60's outdoor shuffleboard game. The rooms are well equipped with fridge, microwave, air conditioning, flat screen TV and a firm mattress. All said, what makes this spot a true gem is its proximity to the beach; just 30 steps away! Though the sand is a bit rougher than Wasaga, you won't encounter the crowds or swarms of gulls diving in for your fries. Because it books mainly by the week, the spot books up months in advance, though on this occasion we were lucky enough to grab a room for Saturday night only! Score! I'd recommend this little motel for anyone looking to enjoy something of the beaten path. Even if you're looking for a quick weekend getaway, give them a call... you never know!
