A very enjoyable stay at the Wee House. Especially liked the open cottage plan and beach access. Midland conveniently nearby for shopping as needed.
My family (four adults, two children, two babies) spent four days at the wee house at the end of August. I would recommend this cottage to a family (or families) with small children for many reasons.
First of all, correspondence with the owner, Geoffrey, was excellent. I felt at ease knowing that he would reply to my messages within a timely manner, and he always answered all of our questions in detail. Very much appreciated!!
Second, the wee house is very conveniently located steps away from beautiful and private Cawaja beach (a two minute walk!). This beach is perfect for kids. The sand is smooth and clean, shallow walk-in, clean, clear water that stays shallow and sandy forever. LOVE this beach!
Third, the cottage is very clean, spacious, and well-equipped. Tons of board games and dvds for the kids to enjoy as well, which was a huge bonus.
Lastly, everyone had their own space. Three decent sized bedrooms and lots of beds to choose from, and two fully functional bathrooms. The outdoor shower was great too.
Now for the not-so-great parts...
Beds are quite uncomfortable. Mattresses are hard and you can feel the springs against your body. Pillows are also hard and lumpy so bring your own.
BBQ was so dirty when we arrived that we weren’t able to use it the entire week. I suppose the cleaning staff doesn’t clean the bbq and obviously the previous family (or families) didn’t either. That was pretty disappointing.
With no air conditioning, ceiling fans are key at this cottage! Although there are a few installed already, there could definitely be another one added to the main cottage (which is very long), and in the bedroom with the bunk beds (there is only a table fan in there).
Overall, this cottage is a great bang for your buck. It is clean, modern and well-equipped, and the location is excellent. Steps to a beautiful beach, and a super easy drive from Toronto!
We have been coming to the weeHouse for a few years now and we love it each time. It is a wonderfully thought out cottage that is built with ease and comfort in mind. I appreciate how close the beach is (2 minute walk) and I like that I can pop into Midland for all my groceries (15 min drive). The cottage itself is modern (Scandinavian style), comfortable, clean and quiet. It has a large deck, an amazing outdoor shower with hot water, a screened in porch, a well stocked kitchen, t.v, games and most importantly for us, stand up paddle boards. We used them everyday and they were awesome. I have the best memories of staying at this cottage and I hope to make more every year. I have rented many cottages since my children were born 13 years ago and this is by far my absolute favourite.
Cottage is a gem! It is very well equipped (great kitchen), clean, spacious, cozy, relaxing and stylish. The beach is very calm and beautiful and less than a five minute walk from cottage. Really enjoyed hanging out on the cottage deck (lots of furniture to choose from), very lovely being nestled among the trees as it felt very private. Made good use of the fire pit (can get wood at the store near by). On the one rainy day we hung out in the main bedroom as one wall is all windows with a small private deck. Screened room was great in the evenings as it allows one to still enjoy nature and not be eaten alive by mosquitos. Can’t wait to book it again!
This architectural gem boasts cozy yet open spaces, with floor to ceiling windows allowing the outdoors in, satisfying all your tree viewing cravings.
The kitchen is well equipped allowing all your culinary dreams come true, or you can head down to Balm Beach for the quaint beachside restaurants and surf-side shop.
The semi-private white sand beach is a 2 min walk away and Awenda's National park a easy 20 min drive away. Breezy. Would love to visit again soon!
