Nearby Attractions

For those who like to sightsee, take the short drive to the numerous tourist areas such as the Sauble River, the Bruce Trail, the Provincial Parks & Nature Reserves, the majestic Niagara Escarpment, Wiarton, and Tobermory.

Just up the road is Sauble Falls. Take your time and explore both sides of the falls. In season, keep a keen eye for fish trying to jump the falls.
