Georgian Bay/Cawaja Beach weeHouse Modern Cottage

  • Property description
    Balm Beach
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
    One of the first prefab 'weeHouses' designed by Geoffrey Warner of Alchemy Architects, this modern cottage has been featured often in the design press, including the Toronto Star in 2006.

    Nestled in 70’ mature red pines, with both good daylight and privacy, this modern cottage is only about 100 yards from the beach path to a beautiful semi-private white sand swimming beach with shallow crystal-clear water. We like to cook, so there is a full cook's kitchen with a gas range.

    There is no high speed internet, but there is decent cell phone coverage.

    There is a large table, a gas fireplace, huge deck, screen porch, Badminton court, standup paddleboard.

I just wished I could stay longer. All the conveniences of home were available at the cottage as well as nearby the cottage. We... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Spent a long fall weekend with my wife and 2 young kids. While it rained most of the time, we really enjoyed the cottage and space. Weehouses are prefab; but certainly will change most peoples opinions of what prefab can be...this one is owned by the designer who was very friendly and accessible, if needed. I was surprised Geoffrey didn't...
