Beacon Shore Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 8 Midland B&B and Inns
GreenLeadersPlatinum level
Reviewed April 29, 2010

The Beacon Shore B&B is a beautiful home nestled away on a gorgeous property overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay. This was our first stay (but not our last) and we recognized that, although only the daffodils, tulips, and trilliums were in full bloom, the gardens on this property will be stunning in the summertime.

Our room, the largest of the three, had a spectacular view of the decommissioned lighthouse on the property, and sparkling Georgian Bay. It was clean beyond belief, quiet, with comfy quilts, flatscreen tv, walk-in closet, and an enormous private bath with shower and tub. We peeked at the other rooms, and they were both lovely as well, with private baths for each one, although not ensuite.

Jacquie and Bob, as great hosts, spent time with us showing us the property, explaining some of the history of the area, and treating us to delicious breakfasts (healthy too) with several choices on the menu. Breakfast in the sun room also provided a beautiful view of the gardens and the Bay - the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee.

This is a wonderful getaway if you just want to sit quietly in an Adirondack chair overlooking the Bay, or spend a romantic evening at the water's edge, or go on a long nature walk. Although Midland and Penetang are only minutes away, you'll be tempted to stay put and just enjoy all this home and surrounding property has to offer. I would HIGHLY recommend the Beacon Shore. We will most definitely return!

Being from Texas, I ave never had a white Christmas with family or really even thought about it until I married a Canadian who wandered to Texas. After a few years or marriage we had spent different holidays with the in-laws in Canada except Canada. Not wanting to stay with family when we travel, we found Beacon Shores a few years ago and have stayed their every since. Jacquie & Bob have treated us like family and to stay in Midland without seeing them would just not be a complete trip. Knowing that everyone has different family plans, we reserved or favorite room almost a year in advance. The Black's contacted us a few months before and said that their family was celebrating Christmas early and that we could stay with them for the holiday. Christmas in Canada was truly and experience not to be missed with the snow, the frozen lake, and Boxing Day. But most of all Food & Friendship are the two items that the Black's exceed all expectations.

Our stay at Beacon Shore over the Easter weekend was a little slice of Heaven! Bob and Jacquie are the sweetest hosts--and extremely knowledgeable about what to see in the area. Their magnificent property offers a forest with walking trails where you might get a glimpse of local deer, as well as a beautiful, Georgian Bay waterfront where you can swim or just relax in the big Muskoka chairs on the dock. Their beautiful home is immaculate and filled with many welcoming details--from luxury strawberry soap for the shower to a comfy sitting room just for guests that overlooks the lake. To top it off, the breakfast menu was the best I've ever had at a B&B. We weren't hungry again until evening! I definitely can't wait to return for another visit this summer!

We stayed for one night at Beacon Shore to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and it was a wonderful experience.

We were fortunate to get the suite room which was perfect, very spacious, views of the lake from both the living room area as well as the large and well appointed ensuite bathroom. Everything was just right. Walking through the grounds down to the waterfront and a small private pier where 2 chairs were placed so we could watch the sun rise over the bay early in the morning (and take a quick swim). Beautiful home, very tastefully furnished, everywhere spotlessly clean. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning in the sunshine was a real treat, witha a delicious and interesting selection of freshly prepared food. Always we noticed attention to detail and warm and friendly service. We had the opportunity to wander through the gardens and share in the beauty of their home in its superb location.

Jacquie and Bob are excellent hosts, and we are hoping it won't be too long before we get another opportunity to come back and stay at Beacon Shore.

Beacon Shore on Georgian Bay

Thank you Bob & Jacqueline for the wonderful experience of your hospitality.
Upon arrival with a view of Georgian Bay we turned left to enter into the driveway.
We drove through a picturesque tree lined drive that the north offers so wonderfully.
The harboured flower gardens first greeted us, the the beautiful Cape Cod house with Bob walking out to greet and welcome us. It was the beginning.....Jackie joined him and we followed inside the house. Removing my shoes I looked with disbelief as my feet touched the polished granite floor.......a 5 star dwelling offering a getaway you need to experience.....I would describe our stay as healing, restful and exciting;
clear blue lake front view, shore and deck access, a lighted lighthouse to beacon you night stroll (we had a clear beautiful full moon), only to finish with morning breakfast to compliment the 5 star B & B all functioning under it's proprietress Molly the cat and fortunate permanent resident.

Merci,
Helene & Bob
