Tastefully Decorated, 4 Bed, 3 Bath Family Cottage in Huron Woods
Although originally from Exeter and Grand Bend, we lived in Bermuda for over 15 years and during 2018 relocated to Costa Rica. We always loved spending our summers in and around Grand Bend, and with our families still in the area, we decided to buy the Brightside Cottage in the summer of 2014. We have lots of fun there, visiting friends and family and taking in all the sights and sounds Grand Bend and Lambton Shores have to offer. Whether its a walk on the beach, going for a bike ride, or curling up by the fire in the winter, there is never a shortage of things to do.

Another fantastic week at the Brightside Cottage
This was the second year that we'd spent a week at the Brightside Cottage. When we arrived, it immediately felt like we were back home. Great cottage and amenities with an awesome location at the far west end of Grand Bend. The private beach unfortunately has been impacted by the weather this summer but the main beach in the town is still one of the best in North America.
Beautiful home away from home
A beautiful, comfortable and clean home away from home! We especially enjoyed the abundance of toys - for the indoors, outdoors and for the beach. We had a wonderful time!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Brightside Cottage. June is a great time to stay, its a little quieter around town than July/August but everything is starting to open up and the days are nice and long! We look forward to having your family back again!
Great time at the Brightside Cottage. Looking forward to our week’s stay in August.
Would be willing to pay a little extra if it meant having a professional clean and linens provided.
Toys for the kids were great. Backyard is nice and spacious. Love all the extras were able to use while we were there. Next time we’ll pack lighter!
Scenic Nature & Family Fun
After a long scenic drive from the GTA, we were met at the beautiful home and provided with detailed instructions on the property and anemeties. Our week was spent exploring the area’s nature (we saw deer, wild turkeys, beautiful birds) and scenic beaches via bike, quaint drives into surrounding small towns to keep the kids further entertained.
We recommend visiting The Pinery, Rock Glen, Stones & Bones in Sarnia and Fairytale Village in London. Also don’t forget to climb the giant sand hill. The boys loved it !! The cottage is extremely cozy and includes all of the comforts of home. Our boys had loads of fun playing with toys, reading books, playing on the swings and watching movies. At the end of a relaxing week, we followed instructions to clean up and we left the beautiful Brightside cottage as we found it.
Thank you for allowing us to share our experience & your beautiful cottage. We will never forget our family memories that were made while we were there :)
WOW did your family ever take advantage of everything Lambton Shores has to offer, that's wonderful! It's so much more for families than just the beach in Grand Bend! So glad you had such a great time and we hope to have you back again next summer!
The property is meticulously maintained and very comfortable. Well situated at the quieter end of Grand Bend and a short (10 to 15 minute) walk to the residential beach. Bedrooms are nice with plenty of bathrooms. Well-equipped kitchen, nice deck and a nicely setup rec / games room in the lower level. The pictures really don't do the cottage justice. A big thanks to the owners for a great holiday.
A family gathering of women and Brightside Cottage was perfect for our time together!
This pinery neighbourhood home is beautifully furnished and completely welcoming. Warm, sunny walls inside create a cozy feeling even on a cloudy day.
The kitchen is perfectly kitted out for a large crowd and all cooking needs. (Unfortunately, the Pinery was not open to trail walkers, but we really enjoyed the roads in the neighbourhood and a walk into Grand Bend. Even in the Huron Shores laden with ice and snow were picturesque.)
Special thanks for the bevy of great toys for our two year old! We'll definitely recommend this charming VRBO for all seasons!!
Thank you for the kind words! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and were able to enjoy the simple pleasures of the Huron Woods community! Thanks for taking great care of the Brightside Cottage during your stay and please keep us in mind for future travels!
