Sunbeam Bungalows is located on Callander Bay, Lake Nipissing, in the small, picturesque town of Callander, Ontario. It offers a small town, quiet lifestyle within 10 minutes of the larger shopping and cultural centre of North Bay. Our 1, 2 and 3 bedroom housekeeping cottages are clean, fully furnished, fully equipped and spacious. They have an open concept living space with full kitchen, dining and seating area, flat screen TV (digital cable,)free Wi-Fi, 3 or 4 piece baths, and are made up and ready for occupancy. The resort is nestled under the pines, across the road from a long, white, sandy beach. The shallow water provides safe, carefree swimming for children and adults alike. The marina shelters our fleet of boats and has space for docking your own boat. A favourite feature is our private 2, 500 sq. Ft. Deck overlooking the entire bay, complete with lounge chairs, a covered gazebo, barbecue and picnic tables with umbrellas. Enjoy our long stretch of private beach, where the water is reliably shallow for carefree swimming or splashing, and the sand is perfect for lazing in the sun or playing. There's plenty of room for relaxing, and for having fun in the water.

I’ve let this slide too long!
Excellent accommodations and resort!
I spoke with Darren and Sarah (owners) about the celebration I was setting up. As a group of 22 guys with an age range from mid 30’s to mid 40’s, I was looking for a resort with cabins that could handle a few specifics. We would require balcony’s and bbq’s per cabin, a fire pit with an abundance of wood and an outdoor common area to play some cornhole and toss a frisbee around during downtime. We were granted all of this and more. This family run resort sits on the best beach on lake nippissing with some of the best fishing available. As our group trip was designed primarily as a golf tournament, we were unable to take advantage of the rental boats to drop lines in the water, however we did enjoy a few bevies in the laidback loungers at the beach.
Darren and Sarah went above and beyond to help with this event I planned by providing great restaurants we could cater from as well as replenishing our fire wood supply mid burn every night. When we were out golfing every day, we were welcomed back with smiles and golf conversations as well as a freshly raked common area. Sunbeam Bungalows is a well manicured / maintained resort that is run by a hard working, tentative to detail family.
Anytime I need to setup an event or head north for a weekend, I’ll be staying here. Unbelievable service!
Thanks again guys!

Firstly I apologize to Sarah , Darren and family for not writing a review before this. This will be our forth year booking the Cottages and our family will be so disappointed if we can’t enjoy this home away from home again this year. It has become our family summer highlight. From the time we arrive Darren and Sarah go out of their way to ensure you are looked after in every way. They are exceptional hosts. Property is well maintained, cottages are clean and well kept, and lots of fun activities too enjoy. Beach is lovely and having the boat for fishing or to just enjoy a lake cruise is an added bonus. If you want a place to relax and enjoy I would highly recommend booking at Sunbeam Bungalows. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

Is is our 4th season, vacationing at Sunbeam Bungalows, once again Sarah and Darren have gone above and beyond to make their guests comfortable and welcome. We went from July 11 to July 25th, unfortunately the weather did not cooperate but it was still a great time. Good fishing and the barbecue and beach party was still a success while taking part in social distancing in the COVID time. I give this cottage resort a 5⭐️ rating and highly recommend going there.

7 of us stayed. Rooms were cozy. Everything we needed was included (BBQ was great to cook on every day) The grounds were immaculately kept and owner was incredible. He answered all questions/requests and made our stay what it was. The beach however was THE BEST part!!! Water activities and toys and BBQ and firepits. We spent most of our time here. We will for sure be baxk next year (the family has already been discussing dates hahaha)

After deciding to rent a cottage for a family getaway this summer I did som online research on places Further north from the Great Lakes where we have never been and stumbled upon the website for Sunbeam Bungalows and loved what I saw and read so I decided to book the week of August 15 to 21. When we arrived on the 15th we were greeted With a warm welcome from Darren and quickly shown to our cottage which was ready upon aerial around 4 pm and when we were taken inside it was spotless and sure felt like a nice cozy "cottage". There is a wonderful welcome package book that outlines everything you need to know for your stay at Sunbeam as well as the local businesses, many of which were just up the road and in easy walking distance too including a food land, lcbo, macs, LU LUs snack shack and bar and grill (fantastic food), and a laundry mat with an awesome bakery on the other side! Everything and I mean everything (utensils, dishes, blankets for beds etc) was stocked that you could
Possibly need during your stay at the cottage so it is nice to only have to bring clothes, food and anything else you like to have on hand for yourself. They come and empty garbage, clean up the grounds and fire pits every day... The place is kept immaculate everywhere! Darren works hard from early morning to night every day to ensure everything is kept up well and to help all guests with whatever he can! We really enjoyed having a fishing boat included with the rental too that was a real bonus here! The beach area is kept really clean and the water was extremely shallow and very warm and you could walk out forever and it was only 2 to 3 feet deep for a long stretch and was very safe for kids to swim in (we had a 5 and 14 year old with us) and even when it is a bit choppy there is now under tow like we get in the Great Lakes here. For anyone like us who has never been to a lake up north (just Lake Huron and Erie for me before this) the water is a bit different in that there is some sea weed near the shore to walk through and the water is not as clean and crystal clear as we are accustomed to but it didn't seem to matter to the kids they loved it! There was a wonderful BBQ hosted by The owners Monday which was great and a great way to meet everyone staying there and make some new friends! On Wednesday there was a fantastic beach party with quality live entertainment and a huge fire with smores and glow sticks for the kids and we all had a blast! On Friday there was a treasure hunt hosted by Sarah (Darren's wife) for the kids and it was very well thought out and put together and ended on the beach with buried treasures for the kids and each got a nice package with bubble toys and candies! We had a couple rainy days where we ventured into the mall in north bay which had a huge Walmart and tons of shopping too! Fishing was great there everyone who was fishing caught something! On the beach there is a huge deck in the water where you can enjoy fantastic sunsets too. All and all if you are looking for a relaxing family getaway this is a great spot!! We can't say enough good about Darren and Sarah they work their butts off to make sure everyone who comes to stay there is happy and has a great holiday! Oh and they have 5 beautiful children who are so lucky to have such wonderful parents and have a place like this to grow up! Keep up the good work guys you deserve a big pat on the back!

Clean, cozy cottages with everything you need for an ice-fishing weekend. The cottage we had was well maintained, and the new windows mean it wasn't drafty. The owner is very attentive. Would gladly return.

Thanks very much Michael. It was a pleasure to have you guys, and hope to see you again next year, (or perhaps during our spring, summer, or fall season)...would be a little warmer, and you can move around this time being in a boat. :))

We just came back from a week away at Sunbeam and it was excellent!! Darren is amazing and I have never seen a cleaner, more well maintained place ever. They take such good care of everything, including their guests!! We had our bungalow ready on arrival, boat ready, wood for fires, and literally anything else we needed. The boat was cleaned every day and refueled which was great for our fishing needs!! We caught tons of fish, met lots of great people, and over all had an absolutely amazing time. We will definitely be making this a yearly trip now. Thank you again Darren for the awesome week!

Well, here we are, back for another week's vacation at Sunbeam Bungalows! Last year we rented a two-bedroom cottage and brought our grown daughter, but this year my wife and I snuck away and are comfortable in our cozy and cute little one-bedroom hideaway. There is still plenty of room, and as always everything is clean and up-to-date. It is clear that owners Darren & Sarah care a great deal about their guests and their beautiful little gem of a resort.

The beach is fantastic, the extensive dock (more like a boardwalk!) and lounging chairs, the kayaks, the beach umbrellas... well, you get the picture; it's a great place to swim and frolic, or just de-stress and relax. With the Callander town centre only a couple klicks up the road, you are in easy reach of everything you need, and North Bay is about 10 minutes from your doorstep, should you desire more civilization, but really, why leave your comfy chair on the porch?!

The Wifi is enough to stay in touch, but not enough to stream movies or game heavily, which in my view is a "plus." Every cottage has its own firepit, picnic table, barbecue and parking area, plus all the stuff you need to
