This was our fourth straight summer coming to Beauview Cottage Resort to stay for a week. We originally found it on the internet and each visit our family enjoys it more and more. We have young children and they have been enjoying this beautiful place since they were toddlers. It all begins with the Hosts / Owners Gord and Nancy. You could not find two more accomodating people. They set up an outdoor kitchen and play toys in front of the cottage in preparation four our arrival. They also provide us with safety plugs for the electric sockets and have provided bed railings too. Nothing is too small or large for them to help with. Each year Gord has taken us out on a boat trip on the Lake of Bays. And we have used their permits for Algonquin Park on several occasions. The cottages are very clean and recently Gord upgraded cottage #6 (our usual one) with a new barbecue and flat screen television. All the cooking utensils and equipment are provided as well. Our kids love Beauview as much as we do because there is so much for them to do! There is a shallow swim area with a sand area next to the natural beach. There are life jackets, pool noodles, innertubes, and even kids' individual pedal boats for them to enjoy. There are also lots of sand toys, a playground with swings and climbing equipment and lots of sports balls and equipment. All of these plus the use of row boats, pedal boats, kayaks, canoes, water trampoline, Moonwalk log, and Iceberg climber are all free for guests. Our kids have also done crafts with Nancy, and on the occasional rainy day, watched a video from Beauview's large collection, or played a board game. Beauview is also a place where you can sit, relax and enjoy the sheer beauty of the surroundings and the Lake of Bays. There are so many places to sit as well as several gazebos to keep you shaded. The last thing that I want to mention is the location. It is a short drive to Baysville, about 15 to 20 minutes from downtown Huntsville and about 30 minutes from the west gate of Algonquin Park. I highly recommend Beauview Cottage Resort and thank Gord and Nancy for taking such good care of us. We plan on returning next summer again!
