Stayed for a few nights with 2 adults 2 kids. The room was small but we are only in the room to sleep. The room was clean and comfortable, had everything we needed in the kitchen. The pull out bed is small great for kids 10 and under might struggle with anyone bigger than that if you are trying to put 2 in the bed. Mark was very helpful and freindly. Great bonfire each night and shuffleboard. Lots to do in walking distance; gocart, arcade, beach store, resturant. The beach is just across the street (which is quite slow as everyone is really just looking around). Beach was great soft sand, the water was warm for Labour Day weekend. Beach fills up early if you want a good spot better pick one by 11am.

Room Tip: Cabin 1 has a little deck close to road and looking at the beach.

Just got back from our second year at BBR. Its a beautiful spot to spend a week or two with the kids or as a couple. Great bang for your buck. Everything you need is there and if its not its just down the road. Your host, Mark is a great guy and does his best to make sure your stay is relaxing and stress free. We've already booked for next year. Not sure what the whiny reviews were about. (The beach was rocky? lol) (Some woman couldnt deal with a portable stove? lol) I guess some people cant put things in perspective. Ive stayed in many places around the world and the BBR is certainly in the top 5 that combine affordability with beauty and charm.

Stayed for a couple of nighs with our two kids. The room was extremely small for four people, the room had musty smell that would not go away, the air conditioner wad way too close to the inadequate kids' pull out bed, there were not sufficient number of cups and plates, and the beach was rocky. Definitely not the $100+ a night. Maybe we expected too much.

Great place to go for a week away. Beautiful views and gorgeous sunsets. The rooms are small, but they have everything: very comfortable queen size bed & double pull out sofa, shower, toilet, A/C, microwave, hot plates, fridge, cutlery, dishes, broom, etc. The rooms are a minute walk or less to the beach across the street. Mark, your great host, offers shuffleboard and badminton, nightly fires, picnic tables and three BBQs for guests to use. His staff are friendly and very helpful. If you have a problem, Mark will solve it as fast as he can.
Within walking distance of the resort are tennis courts, paddle boat/jet ski rentals, a family restaurant, an arcade/ice-cream/fast food place, variety store and a tavern that was being renovated. It is a 10 minute drive to Midland, where you can get whatever you need.
I highly recommend Balm Beach Resort if you are looking for a great time away for a very reasonable price. Call Mark early, they book up fast!!!!
Looking forward to next year!!!!

Stayed here with my family. The resort is very close to the beach which is great. This is a nice resort for a short stay.
