My husband and I entered town on June 12th, 2013, via County Rd 8/Queen Street and continued to Main St., and there it was on the right, the Lakeview Motel and Cottages. We made our reservations via the Internet and understood that we were considerably PRE-Season, but were greeted with a lake view and much personal warmth, right off!
This property on Main Street is at the top of the hill about an 8 minute walk to the beach. Our accommodation was a two bedroom cottage (which is really a larger motel room with a verandah), which would accommodate 6 persons). Having visited their website, we were aware of the Rules & Regulations of the this section of the property and found them to be entirely reasonable (provide your own linens). Gail takes pains to give renters an 'original' cottage experience by haunting garages sales and antique shops for 'vintage' local cottage tchochkis and memorabilia. While the 'cottage' is in need of some updating, the owners, Gail and Randy, are in the process of doing just that. They made us feel like old friends, and provided us with a sparkling pool and use of a hot tub(which is being upgraded/replaced as we speak), comfortable lounges in the pool area, tucked in and sheltered by mature maples trees on 2 sides and the Motel/Cottages on 2 sides.
The 'Guest Lounge' offered Wi-fi , so we could keep up with our email During the Summer Season I understand that the signal is boosted and you can enjoy your computer connection at your own cottage. Cottages are individually air-conditioned and have electric heat for times when the weather is cool. Flat-screen TV was available with a fair range of stations on offer.
There are propane Barbecues available for use (you provide your own tools and do basic cleanup) and a fire-pit is put out in the early evening(after 7:00 p.m.) which encourages socializing and the campfire experience.
This little oasis is within walking distance to the Dairy Queen, Subway sandwich shop, The Gift Bowl (a converted bowling centre), the Sauble Dunes Restaurant and Bar(who's parking lot was previously the 'roller rink!'), and various clothing and surf shops. There is also an art gallery, grocery store and LCBO extremely handy. On the beach there are more food outlets, including hand-dipped ice cream, Beavertails and a burger joint.. All round wonderful location!
