The staff were very friendly and helpful. They clearly indicated the layout of the property and extras available in the recreation hall. The room was clean and all needed amenities were supplied. Warning in mid June: do not leave your patio door open with the lights on in the evening. The little bugs like to come in. It was a wonderful stay.

Stayed overnight while visiting Bruce Peninsula. Staff were thoughtful. We walked around the grounds and it looked like there are lots of small activities to explore for those who get to stay for the day, plus great access to the water. Room was clean and comfortable, and private even on the ground level. Our only issue was our shower would change water temperature sporadically and often enough to make us nervous lol. Overall a nice stay. Wiarton is a quaint town, we would visit the resort again. Thank you.

My wife and I stayed here during our mini-moon. It was in an excellent location for us to head further into the peninsula for day hikes. Relative to Wiarton, it is out of the way of the heavier traffic through town but close enough to walk or bike in for restaurants - a perfect balance. The property itself extends right down to the water and has a fire pit, swimming pool, horseshoes, a few swings, beach volleyball court, and chairs set up in a number of shady, semi-private groves and along the beach. There was a small gazebo and a pier at the waterfront too. The Rec Room on-site had a good selection of movies (VHS and DVD) to choose from - a nice dose of nostalgia for us. Our room was on the small side but the balcony was large and featured a table with three chairs. One thing we felt was missing was a towel bar. Tammy, the owner, was a pleasure to interact with. She was very cheery and helpful, always! We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Hubs and I stayed in 104 which contained comfy queen bed/ futon/ fridge/ coffee maker ( good coffee)/ tv/ pet friendly and was located in front of the pool. Our neighbours in 103 and 102 had a better view of the manicured lawn plus mature trees along with a gorgeous direct breeze so we will book those rooms next time . Up top are larger rooms, I imagine their view is stunning ! In the rec room we had access to the kettle, bbq and microwave if required . I was hesitant to book the extra night as I’m super covid cautious but noticed staff cleaning and appeared to be very detailed about protocols . A very short walk to the clean crystal clear beautiful bay which sits right on their property, comfy chairs were everywhere so we can sit on the beach , under the mini gazebo and enjoy lunch on the picnic table . We were in heaven and wanted to stay longer, definitely returning ! No luck with a home but lucky with our mini getaway ! Thanks Tammy and staff :)

This is our second time staying at Waterview on the Bay, and we couldn't have had a lovelier time. The owners are on site and so friendly, it's spotlessly clean, and they are constantly improving. The other guests were even friendly. The 4 acre property and beach give the best views and sunsets in Ontario. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a cottage getaway where all your needs are met. A/C keeps things cold, mini fridge in each room, some rooms have hot tubs and the whole property at your disposal. Great for night photos as well, very clear and no low light pollution. Minutes from Wiarton with a foodland and Tim's, and within 1/2 hour drive from lookouts, hikes, waterfalls. Summer is fun with the pool, but you can't beat the spring and fall in Wiarton for flowers, fall leaves and the clear blue lake. We came in October last year and loved seeing the escarpment leaves - absolutly breathtaking views. We'll be back next year!
