My family stayed at Cottage by the Dunes over the Labour Day weekend last year. The cottage was rustic but comfortable with all the amenities we needed. The proximity to the water was perfect. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular! It was amazing to sit on the dock and watch the beautiful sky in this peaceful setting. We prepared our dinners using the barbeque provided and relaxed on the patio with food and a glass of wine. And ended the evening around the fire pit roasting marshmallows. And if you want to spend time at the beach, it's very close to the Sandbanks Provincial Park. We can't wait to visit again this summer!
