Holiday Rental House
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. 1300 sf, 3 BR: sleeps 9 total 1 queen BR (for 2 people) on the main level 1 queen BR w/ 1/2 bath (for 2 people...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.

Wonderful layout however for very small children the separation of bedrooms may be an issue. We loved the setting and appreciated the many windows that looked out into the forest. Comfortable and well equipped kitchen. We felt very zen in this uncluttered space. Many thanks...More

Thanks for staying with us. Zen is good! Happy that the cottage and red pines put you in that place.

A very enjoyable stay at the Wee House. Especially liked the open cottage plan and beach access. Midland conveniently nearby for shopping as needed.

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.
How to get there
You'll need a car typically, but it is possible to take a bus from Toronto Airport to Barrie, and schedule a pick up in Cawaja Beach with a little extra work.
