Overview
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Balm Beach, Tiny, Ontario
One of the first 'weeHouses' designed by Geoffrey Warner of Alchemy Architects, this modern cottage has been featured often in the design press, including the Toronto Star in 2006.

Nestled in 70’ mature red pines, with both good daylight and privacy, this modern cottage is only about 100 yards from the beach path to a beautiful semi-private white sand swimming beach with shallow crystal-clear water. We like to cook, so there is a full kitchen with a gas range.

There is no high speed internet, but there is decent cell phone coverage.

There are large tables, a gas fireplace, huge deck with Muskoka Chairs, a screen porch, Badminton court, a rowboat, and standup paddleboard.

Very nice cottage. Fully equipped with anything you might need. Great space, weather wasn't the greatest but because of all the glass we felt like we were outdoors anyway. Great location, close to everything. Beach was very close, within walking distance. We would highly recommend this property.

My family and I had the most lovely, if too short, stay at this architectural gem. Graciously appointed with comfortable furniture, the house boasts a very well equipped kitchen, three bedrooms, included linens and towels, and even paddle boards for use at the beach which is a mere two minute walk away. The house itself, while compact, offers a wonderful...

A great set up for our family get together with all the games, movies and puzzles for rainy days.

About the neighbourhood
Cawaja Beach has been a favorite family summer destination since the 1920s. It is a great cottage community on Georgian Bay that that is only 1-1/2 hours north of Toronto Airport, and 10 minutes from Midland. The beach is not crowded, the cottages all surrounded with tall red pines, and carpeted with dried pine needles over the white sandy soil. Midland has all the conveniences of a larger town.

The shallow sandy swimming beach warms nicely in the summer and is good for paddleboarding, kiteboarding, windsurfing, boating. Fishing and golfing and Georgian Bay boat tours available locally. The Huronia Heritage Museum and Martyrs' Shrine are in nearby Midland.
