“1st Visit to Midland area, we loved Beacon Shore B&B.”
Reviewed 16 July 2008

Deciding to visit the Midland area, we again looked to the Janette Higgin's B&B recommendations and review to find Beacon Shore. We were graciously greeted and welcomed by our hosts, Jacquie and Bob Black. Jacquie gave us a tour of the property and her beautiful home. The property is located on a shoreline bluff above Georgian Bay and views are spectacular. We stayed in the Queen suite and found our accomodation very comfortable. Breakfast is served in the sun room where we enjoyed the view of the garden area, a delicious meal and informative conversation with our hosts. Local attractions abound in the Midland area. We enjoyed a golf day at Brooklea Golf Club and followed up with a boat tour of Georgian Bay on the Miss Midland. We are looking forward to our next visit to Beacon Shore in August 2008.

Reviewed 28 June 2008

The Beacon Shore is situated about 5 minutes drive from both Penetanguishene and Midland on the shores of Georgian Bay. It's a nice house with clean and comfortable accommodation.

However, I felt that I wasn't made to feel very welcome by the hosts who were "offish" the whole time I was there and very difficult to engage in conversation. I'm not sure that they have the right personality for their vocation. As an example, I arranged to have breakfast at 8.00 but went down at 7.55 and they basically sent me away for five minutes which I felt was rude and unnecessary.

That aside, the room was well appointed and I loved the decorations on the wall with hand painted bluebirds flitting around the room. The bathroom was absolutely sparkly clean and large. The house is in a quiet residential area and it's a nice 5 minute stroll down to the shore of Georgian Bay where the house has a short jetty. And breakfast, when it came, was very nice.

Perhaps I caught them on a bad day, but I wouldn't stay here again because of their unwelcoming nature, but if you don't mind that, the accommodation is very comfortable.
