Thank you for visiting our cottage site. We are booked for the summer weeks, but weeks May 1st thru June 25 are available. Some of the best vacation times at Balm were in late spring or early fall. Nice & quiet. Everyone seems to enjoy the cottage and all it's amenities. Water has risen but we still have great sand beaches. Hopefully the Covid monster will have been "run-out-of-town" in time for your vacation at beautiful Balm Beach.

The space
You have a short 250 step walk to the water's edge. Feel free to use our water floating devices for the kids, as well as our four beach chairs (4) while down at the beach. Six beach towels are also provided. Our cottage has all the amenities for year round enjoyment: Gas furnace and air conditioning, free internet, washer (for emergencies) /dryer (free), complete kitchen with brand new appliances, satellite TV, 55" flat screen over the gas fireplace, TV downstairs for all the kids' games, gas BBQ on main deck, linens provided, parking for two cars,

Guest access
Naturally, the entire cottage is yours to enjoy. I have hired a quality cleaning firm and we will ensure the cottage will be cleaned thoroughly and completely wiped down prior to your arrival. Hand sanitizers will be provided. It is appreciated what is not used are left for our next guests........Thank you.

Other things to note
You will note we have a "Smart" thermostat. Hopefully during the summer months you will not need the heat and it is set for the A/C to automatically come on at 24 degrees.

Your vacation cottage is for families only please. Our cottage is situated between two full time retired friendly neighbours, so we respectfully ask no large / loud gatherings or parties (voices carry in the evening from your deck). You are two minutes from the centre of Balm Beach. ie: two restaurants, an arcade, convenience store, go-carts and tennis courts. CBO park, with playground and baseball diamond, is a quick ten-minute walk north. Paddle-boats and other water rentals are available through the motel across the street. We also require a signed rental agreement, which I will forward to you upon your confirmation.

Retired to the shores of Georgian Bay 5 years ago. Have 3 boys, 3 daughter-in-laws, 4 grand kids (and counting) so pretty lucky and the best part, they haven't found out where we live yet (just kidding). The cottage you are considering used to be a very old and tired family cottage, my grandfather built in 1932. Decided to rebuild and hopefully share with my family and new friends. Like you enjoy the travel & vacation experience. We'll do our best to make sure you enjoy your stay at our cottage. Best..........John
