“Pure Bliss”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our family just returned from our vacation at Red Bay Getaway, we are amazed at how beautiful and enjoyable our stay there was. The property was more than you could ever ask for. Anything and everything you would need for a fantastic vacation is there for you, it provided enough privacy to fully relax and close enough to travel local for a great family day out!!! Our family truly loved it and will certainly be planning on going back again in the future, we recommend this location to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay near the water!!!!!

Thank you again to the amazing owner who ensured our stay was excellent.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had a beautiful relaxing stay at red bay. Everything is there that you need. A beautiful view of the lake and a minutes walk to a children's park with the beach. If u have kids it's a perfect spot. The cottage is very roomy and bright and it has great zen. We didn't want to leave! Want to return in September! Ingrid and Joseph Crowe ~ port colborne, ontario

“All the amenities and a sunset view!”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Wow. What a fantastic trip we had. We had every kind of weather and were able to enjoy the cottage to the fullest. The kitchen is so fully stocked that we found things that we didn't even think of and were able to use them. Thankfully the Apple T.V. saved the day for us watching a very important baseball game and we loved how close we were to Sauble Falls and Wiarton. We had no idea that there was heat in the smaller house and were cold in there so maybe add that to the list of instructions on the fridge. It was so nice and bright and perfect for 2 couples and our two dogs. We were able to see the maintenance man on the day we left so we pointed out a couple of things to him that needed looking at (burnt out light) and he was happy with the cleanliness of the cottage and how we left things. We will be back!

“Relaxing getaway with all the extras!”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My spouse and I were aw-struck by the immediate feeling we got when we entered the cottage. The view to the water from the dining room table was beautiful. Even with a day of drizzle on our weekend, we still enjoyed the peacefulness and tranquility of this getaway. Neighbors walking their dogs were friendly and didn't treat us as 'renters'. There is no doubt that the sunsets are stunning over the water. We of course took the opportunity to take pictures and immediately posted them on facebook where our friends became jealous of us. My spouse also wrote on his status after getting back for an hour to our home that he was 'ready to go back to the peacefulness and sounds of the waves'. We will definitely be going back!!

“There's no place like home!”
Reviewed September 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend getaway at the Symon Ave cottage. Very roomy and inviting and just loved the leather couch. I'm not a techy so the tv was a bit out of my league, but my son clicked this and that and in no time I was watching apple tv. Eating breakfast as I watched early risers jump off the pier at Red Bay was pure joy. I will be back.

Liked least: I wasn't so keen on the booking process mostly because I'm not computer savvy.

Wow ! What a wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting, the photos do not do this place justice.
Our boys spent more time in the water and on the beach than we were expecting, as did we.
Its nice and close to so many other great destinations, like Sauble Beach, Tobermory ( world class scuba diving . Try a swim off the Lighthouse rocks )
Jay, the owner, answered all the questions we had by email in just an hour or so.
I can not wait to go back again, hopefully next year.

i dont even know where to begin , there were so many amazing things.
Jason was a great host.
The cottage has more than enough space for 8 people
The view from the back yard is stunning. the sun sets into the same direction as the lake and it is absoluty beautiful
The cottage is loaded with so many amenities. ( half of which we didnt even use) but its there when and if you want it.
It is very clean.
It is very nicely secluded by tress from nearby cottages

One teeny tiny thing i was recommed is that there is this 'small step' from the kitch to the living room and from the sunroom to the living room . We constatly kept tripping over it and hurting our toes. So if that could somehow be fixed it woudl be great !

Thanks Jason !
