Weekend getaway


The cottage was great, easy check in and checkout. Jane and Murray were easy to communicate with and responded to questions quickly. We didn't use the room at the back of the house near the backyard since we had enough sleeping space inside, but I don't think I would sleep in that room on a super hot/cold day. It's more of a separate sunroom that isn't sleeping space. It was great value for the space and location of the cottage.

Nice Spot !

A great place to stay. Jane is a wonderful host . The cottage is airy, clean , and has a great rear yard with deck and firepit. It is about a 7-8 minute car ride to downtown Grand Bend with all amenities very close by.

May 2-4 family getaway!


Perfect family getaway. The cottage was big, spacious and clean. We had 4 adults and 2 little ones and we all loved it. Has a great cottage feel, Jane was so helpful and there for anything. There was a great park just across the road, and a private beach just a short walk away. We would love to return again soon.

Girls Weekend Getaway


I rented The Blue Heron for a fun getaway weekend for a group of 13 of my girlfriends and we could not have had a better experience. From the first steps in contacting Jane and booking the cottage, to arriving and our stay, everything ran smoothly. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and was beautifully decorated in a beachy theme. The overall sleeping arrangements was also ideal for our group and everyone could not stop raving about how cute everything was. There is a beautiful staircase just 2 minutes from the cottage that leads to the water and as mentioned is about a 10 minute drive to Grand Bend which is very convenient. Jane has also done an extensive amount of research and had many pamplets and resources available for ideas or activities within the area. If you're looking for a place to stay around Grand Bend, I would 100% recommend The Blue Heron. If we ever need a spot to stay, I will for sure be going back!
