About This Cottage

Beachfront property on Georgian Bay is not the easiest thing to find these days, and finding it in the sub $1500 range is a challenge indeed! We’re up to that challenge, and are delighted to offer you Mama’s Beach House. While the Georgian Bay coast is now dotted with large high-end cottages, a simple beach house is still the essence of a quiet relaxing vacation in Huronia.

A classic Tiny Beaches cottage, Mama’s has just what you need for a family week of R&R. There are 3 bedrooms in the cottage – 2 with double beds and another with twin bunks. An open concept living/kitchen/dining area takes advantage of windows on the waterfront to create a bright area with lake views. A TV/DVD combination make for a cosy family gathering place in evenings or on rainy days, and the recently renovated kitchen has all you need for cottage cooking, complete with stove, fridge and microwave. In 2017, the owner added WiFi so you are now able to easily SnapChat photos to your friends to brag about the good time you are having at the beach!

We should talk about the beach of course, since that is the reason you will want to rent this cottage. A large expanse of soft sand is a great spot for families to sunbathe, play and relax.The shallow water provides the perfect watery playground for toddlers and waders. Swimmers will have to walk a little ways out into the bay to enjoy some deeper water. There are some stoney areas at entry so we do recommend swimming shoes. Note that storms and winds can change the appearance of the waterfront from time to time.

Out and about, families may enjoy side trips to the Wye Marsh or the Martyrs' Shrine in Midland. There are several museums in Midland and Penetanguishene. Cyclists will enjoy the Tiny Beaches rail trail, a converted railroad line that runs 22 Kms between Elmvale and Penetanguishene.

A week at Mama’s Beach House will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. This one will book quickly, though!

A large expanse of soft sand is a great spot for families to sunbathe, play and relax. A spit runs out into the bay and the shallow water provides the perfect watery playground for toddlers and waders. Swimmers will have to walk a little further out into the bay to enjoy some deeper water.


Lafontaine was originally called Sainte-Croix (French for "Holy Cross"). It was renamed Lafontaine to honour the politician Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine, one of the early Joint Premiers of the Province of Canada.

We had a great time. The cabin was rustic and close to the beach. There was enough supplies in the cabin for cooking and cleaning.It would have been nice if the propane tank was filled by the previous users but either then that we had a fabulous week and would rent again.

Mama's Beach House - the overall stay was good the cottage is situated in a nice area close to water but the cottage is very old and staying there on one of the hottest weeks was excruciating so hot that that we were sweeting like never before:( The cottage has little closet space and with kids we were constantly looking for our clothes that had to place on the table in our bags.

As you come in you are immediately enchanted by the bright room with so many windows! A large dining room table to seat everybody. We would eat on the deck and enjoy the view and the outdoors. In the yard, on a hot day, we could always find a cool spot in the shade where the mosquitoes left us alone. There are 6 garden chairs! The shower stall is roomy and modern. A great relief after a day out in 30 degree weather! The bathroom could have done with an extraction fan to clear the steam - we had to leave the door half open. While the cottage was clean with fresh bedding, the previous guest had not cleaned the stove top and left bread crumbs all over the counter. It reminded us to make sure we left it clean! There was a mop, but no mopping bucket. But there is a vacuum cleaner and a couple of brooms. One of the window screens need replacement as do the blinds next to it. Cell phone reception is virtually non-existent in the whole area of La Fontaine. The TV is nice and large. It is OK for DVD playing but is not hooked up to Cable or the Internet. If it was to the Internet, you could watch Netflix there on a rainy day. We were lucky - we only had sunshine! There are many games and things for kids in the house. Only 2 books, so bring some of your own and leave them there 🙂 The cottage has three bedrooms and can sleep 6. It is good for kids, especially the beach! The mattresses are nice and firm - we slept there very well! The kitchen is well equipped, but I would bring 6 larger bowls for soup or cereal and some wine glasses. Awenda Provincial Park is half an hour's drive away. It is good for hiking and biking. All in all a great place to stay and have a wonderful time!

The cabin is a beach front location. The beach is large and groomed. The water was beautiful but we would recommend that you have water shoes as it is a rock bottom. The cabin was smaller and more "rustic" than I had expected, the bathroom was very tiny but appeared to be recently renovated. Other than some spider webs it was clean and in order when we arrived. There is an excellent European deli around the corner. Shopping is about 15-20 minutes away. We couldn't find an axe to chop firewood and had to borrow one. We had several days of heavy rain and found that the front windows leaked to the point where we had to line the sills with towels. During these rainy times it would have been nice to have some TV channels (you can only play board games, read and do puzzles for so long) and there were only children's dvd's at the cabin. With all being said, we were fine with the cabin for this vacation.
