Nicely maintained family-owned property. View from room was breathtaking. Room (301) was of moderate size but did accommodate two queen beds and a fridge. 3-5 minute drive to Tim Horton and other restaurants. Room had AC and fireplace. Room had mid-sized LED TV & VCR/DVD player with access to movies. Property has access to beach and play area for kids. Similar properties on Priceline would be 2 Star properties with average customer satisfaction rating of 8.

So, the view from the room is breathtaking!! To be fair, we were here in October so no pool access and a wet weekend so no walks to the beach. The room is cozy and clean, but no instructions to use the fireplace and no on switch to be found. The jacuzzi and shower are in the bedroom, but that was ok. The price felt high for what we got, but close access to local activities was nice. The whole building could use updating but I read there are new owners so they may be working on this. Only stairs to access upper balcony rooms so pack lightly!!

We stayed at the Waterview Inn 10/3- 10/6/17. The property and scenery are stunning. Lovely beach and many different gardens to sit, sun and enjoy. We had a stunning private balcony on the third floor with Queen bed and jacuzzi
The new owners are in the process of remodeling all rooms. Rooms are a bit small and no closets. Several restaraunts in town one mile away. No good walking off the property but plenty of hiking trails up and down the Bruce Peninsula.
We are not busy city folks, so we really enjoyed the privacy. Waterview and many places in the Bruce Peninsula are very dog friendly.

It’s better than a motel but it’s not quite a hotel. Waterview by the Bay has fairly recently undergone new ownership. There isn’t a lot of choice in the Wiarton area but this is a good one. Beautiful location with a large, heated outdoor pool (we were there in late August and the temperature of the pool was very comfortable) as well as a lovely private beach. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Owners are friendly, helpful and accommodating. Even though our second floor room backed onto the highway we did not hear road noise and the view from the balcony was delicious. Our room had a gas fireplace. Nice touch! Just a short drive into town, the Waterview is a great base from which to explore the area. No elevators to the second floor rooms so if you have mobility issues you’ll want the first floor or cottage. The new owners are doing a great job of breathing new life into this lovely property. We would return and recommend to friends.
