water, building sand castles, or watching lovely sunrises and sunsets.
The deck is the ideal spot to catch some rays, relax in a lounge

view of the Georgian Bay. If you prefer take a dip in the bay, life
doesn’t get much sweeter than that at the end of a hot summers
day, or sway in one of the two hammocks.
