“A beautiful quiet getaway.”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

Waterview is a gem in the Bruce Peninsula. We spent two beautiful relaxing days at this upscale getaway. The 4 acre grounds are well kept and great for morning or afternoon strolls. Staff area very accomodating, pleasant and make sure all are happy. We look forward to returning in 2011. Jim and Annie Cookson, London, Ontario.

My wife and I needed a break so we took a road-trip to Wiarton. I am always skeptical when making reservations at places I've only seen online; websites can be misleading. However, I called Waterview on The Bay and Dave's friendly demeanor made it feel like the right choice. We were more than satisfied with our stay. First, we were greeted by Dave himself making a grand entrance on a golf cart! We were checked in quickly and provided with information on local dining. We enjoyed the lakeview, a jacuzzi in our room and breakfast on the terrace. Check-out was relaxed and we were given a hand-drawn map of great trails not far from the inn. The next time we are over from Japan, we will be sure to stay at Waterview on The Bay! Thanks Dave

We first stayed at Waterview on The Bay in July 2009. We enjoyed our time there so much that we decided to return this year for a few more days. The location is central to so many activities in Wiarton, Owen Sound, Tobermory and Sauble Beach. The site itself has a great pool, volleyball net, bocce balls, horseshoe set up, and beach (a mix of sand/rocks). My favourite feature of Waterview is the evening bonfire, as I just LOVE roasted marshmellows (provided by Evan). I left Waterview this year feeling the same way as last year: that we didn't stay long enough. Be sure to book a room either on the main or upper floor and you won't be disappointed. They also serve a great breakfast.

We decided to check out Waterview as a potential wedding venue. It was the first of a list we were going to visit over the next month or two and once there we have scrapped the list! I believe in 'signs' and must say that from the moment I arrived and met Evan to the minute I left, we loved every second. The rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean. The property is beautiful with all rooms facing the gorgeous Colpoy Bay (a part of Georgian Bay). The owners are wonderful and laid back and the staff made us smile every time we ran into them (which was not often as we felt that we were the only ones booked into this beautiful oasis). Privacy, beautiful scenery, great staff...I can only say that you MUST check this gorgeous gem out! (By the way Evan and David, if you happen to read this review I would gladly accept any discounts toward the wedding that you have to offer)!!! Really, all jokes aside-if you plan on staying for a night or two in Ontario please give the Waterview your consideration.

Fantastic hotel!! The cleanliness, pleasant staff and amenities are amazing. We visit this hotel every July, and think of it as a bit of a hidden treasure, nestled in the little town of Wiarton! We would strongly recomend this hotel to anyone!
