Georgian Bay’s Most Unique Airbnbs

Best places to play and stay in Georgian Bay

If you’re itching to get outside of the city this summer, Georgian Bay offers a number of unique and cozy Airbnb getaways just waiting for you to lounge in. Prices range depending on how many friends you can roundup, but if you only need a few nights to get your vacation fix, these listings promise some memorable experiences.
 

Redesigned 1950s Cottage

Dubbed “The Painted Oasis,” this cottage has been remade into a modern cabin that stays true to its 1950s roots. The redesign boasts a boho vintage aesthetic, with bright oranges, yellows, and blues, paneled walls, egg chairs and a fully equipped vintage kitchen.
 

Your Own Private Island

This listing promises a “classic cottage experience on [a] private island.” Located off the shores of Parry Sound, this rental accommodates for 10 guests at a nightly rate of $300, which could turn out to be pretty reasonable if you can bring enough friends on board. The cottage is on its own private island, which means it’s only accessible via boat or water taxi, and the host offers full access to the whole island.

 

A Log Cabin and Horses

This log cabin sits on a 200 acre horse farm with a river running right through the property. Guests can book a horseback, kayak or ATV ride during their stay, as well as try out one of the many hiking trails on the property. The Distress River runs through, creating a swimming hole for guests as well as solid opportunities to view wildlife on the property.

 

Stay in a Heritage Home

This listing offers an opportunity to stay in a grand Victorian mansion, equipped with an indoor pool and hot tub. Known as The Butchart Estate, this gorgeous home is located in Owen Sound, just 25 minutes from Sauble Beach. For $600 a night split between eight friends, this makes for a great opportunity to soak up some history while lounging in a stunning mansion.

 

Get Cozy in a Yurt

This Penetanguishene yurt comes with a view of Georgian Bay accompanied by an off-the-grid experience. The property is covered with serene trails that offer golden opportunities to observe wildlife and enjoy the peacefulness of seclusion. The yurt also comes with a wood stove to keep you warm on the cooler late-summer nights.

 

Test Out a Tiny House

Tiny houses are growing in popularity, and this listing offers you an opportunity to stay in one on Georgian Bay. This is a small, A-Frame house that is apparently only a seven-minute walk from over five beaches. This place also comes with a tiny shipping container that serves as a bunkie, as well as a hot tub for those cooler summer nights.
