Full Description

Celebrate summer on the shores of Georgian Bay!

Your cottage getaway is on a private sandy beach close to Midland and Penetanguishene.

You will have the opportunity to explore the water in many ways:

Crew a sailboat, have a lesson in stand up paddle boarding, canoe the Wye Marsh, cruise the islands on the Miss Midland, and swim from the dock in front of your cottage.

Morning yoga, fresh organic meals, creative activities and evening bonfires round out the day.

Venture out to Drayton theatre at King's Wharf, and historical sites of Simcoe County. Home to the first European settlement in Ontario (Sainte Marie Among the Hurons) and a naval base built for the war of 1812 (Discovery Harbour)

Location: In the heart of Georgian Bay, with a view to Beausoleil Island, Present Island and around the bend from Midland Harbour, We will be using a group of 3 cottages on the same privately owned family property. All group activities that need to be indoors will take place in the large house, with accommodation provided in a beach house, cottage and the larger house. We'll maximize our time outside on the beach, the large lawn or on the deck, but have plenty of space for classes and dining inside in case of inclement weather.

The cottages are just 6 minutes from Discovery Harbour and King's Wharf Theatre. 10 minutes from Midland and the Miss Midland Boat Tour, and 15 minutes from Sainte Marie and the Wye Marsh.

Food: you will be well fed this week with all the great tastes of Sugar Ridge. Your cottage will be stocked with everything you need to make your breakfast when you want it, giving you the option of sleeping in or eating early. Lunch and dinner are catered by Sugar Ridge and will be prepared with organic whole foods, plant based and yummy. Eat as much as you want. Iced tea, hot tea, coffee, fresh fruit and wholesome snacks are always available. You have access to a fully equipped kitchen in your cottage so you can bring any snacks or beverages you want and store them there.
