“Exceptional Quality for an Extended Family”

Our son found the Shale Beach House on line and recommended that we share this location for our week long vacation. Our group consisted of grandparents, childern and grandchildren (three families, six adults and four children ages 20 months to 6 years). There was lots of space for play and relaxation even on rainy days.

The Shale Beach House is everything the description outlines with high quality standards throughout. The owner (Philip) who we dealt with was excellent and Joe the Caretaker was very friendly and on our arrival went over every detail of the accommodation.

Although the yard lacks any grassy area there is ample room for childern to play on a great swing set and wooden play house while the adults can relax either on the stone patio or in the hot tub and at night enjoy the feel of a camp fire by the on site fire pit.

Across the road is access to Georgian Bay and although not sandy is a fine place to sit and enjoy the water or to canoe / kayak (provided) and sandy beaches are only a few kilometers away. The Trans Canada Trail is also close and easy access for biking (several sizes of bikes are available) or hiking.
