Did you know that Balm Beach is situated on (some even say is an extension of) the longest freshwater beach in the world? 

This part of South Georgian Bay has calm, sparkling waters and gradual shallow entry perfect for families with kids! 

You can bring your own, or rent a kayak or an SUP at the beach!

Balm Beach Go Karts & Mini Putt is within walking distance from the house and is great entertainment for the kids!

If you are into golf, there is a Golf Club located 5.3 km from the house.

Naval history was once maid in Penetenguishen and you can find out more by visiting Discovery Harbour 10 minutes away by car.

Nature trails are literally at your doorstep and you don't need to venture far to be fully immersed in nature, but if you want to experience something wonderful, be sure to visit the beautiful boardwalk at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre.

There is way too much to do in the area to list here!
