Wonderful two days spent on Lake Ontario in a rustic cabin on the water. Nearby town of Bruce Mines has everything you might need, and the lifestyle is low-key and friendly. Cabin was spacious and well-kept, but by no means modern. We will be back.

Beautiful setting surrounded by panoramic views of the North Channel. Old, traditional cottages with clean, comfortable beds and whimsical touches (e.g. hand painted floors and landscapes painted directly on the pine wall boards). The cottages have a sense of privacy with porches, outdoor grills, fire rings and easy access to hiking trails. Staff is helpful and friendly. The Marriott it's... More

This place is well run, clean and very peaceful... a hidden gem! My family and I had a very relaxing vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Very quiet and a nature lovers paradise! The kids loved the recreational lounge (with WIFI) on rainy days and walking on the bluffs or hiking around the island was a great way to... More

We rented the light house. 3 bedrooms. 1.5 bathrooms. It is approximately 2 miles from the main road so there is no street noise. It is a comfortable place with nothing fancy but it is clean. Internet service was not available during this time and it was great to just talk, relax, and read a book. Excellent area for walks,... More

We 4 adults spend a very happy and relaxing 9 nights at Bruce Bay Cottages. Our hosts, Pat and Larry, were most gracious, and cottage # 7 was cozy, clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The views of the North Channel, the sunsets and moon-rises were delightful, and the swims at the island beaches and Rock Lake were awesome. There's so much... More

Pat and Larry are excellent hosts and go beyond what is expected to make sure you had an enjoyable holiday. We only stayed the one night but were really impressed with both the cleanliness and the amenities that were available. Such a beautiful and peaceful setting. To me cabin #5 was perfect. Although slightly small in size, the view from... More

This was our second time stopping at Bruce Bay Cottages during our 2500km drive from Toronto to the prairies... The cottages are lovely -- we've stayed at #2 both times. It is pet friendly, affordable and has kitchenettes. There are fire pits, hiking trails and great views of the bay. We enjoyed listening to the spring frog singing, and while... More

The hospitality of Pat and Larry is phenomenal. I felt at home right away. The cottages are very clean, inviting and peaceful and packed with all the necessities. For activities are lots of possibilities around Bruce Mines. If you are looking for the "feel-good-chill-out-package" this charming place is perfect. I have been at Bruce Bay cottages several times, and it's... More

Truly a remarkable experience. Staying at Bruce Bay Cottages is unlike anything else I have experienced. Relaxing, invigorating, healthy, quiet and completely enjoyable. The hosts really have thought of absolutely everything. The housekeeping cottages are completely stocked with all the comforts of home. They are spotlessly clean. The islands are private and very quiet, surrounded by the clean clear waters... More
