A quiet residential neighborhood, on the Au Sable River, boasting the best views of Lake Huron in the Bend. Opposite the Grand Bend Yacht Club and the public boat launch, just 5 homes off Lake Huron. Sit back, watch the boat activity, head into town or stroll the beach. Leave your car behind in gated off street parking. Private entrances, deck, and bbq. Lounging patio facing lake with a fire pit for watching the sunsets on the water. All in all, the perfect holiday spot.
Approximately 1000 sq ft, this river level suite provides private, gated parking (no on street parking passes required) and a private entrance in a garden setting. Two bedrooms, one bath apartment with linens. A kitchenette contains an apartment sized refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, kettle, dishes, cutlery, and cooking items. There is an open space for dining and lounging with a fireplace and Netflix. A private wrap around private deck with a bbq, and use of the patio and docking areas for relaxing are included. The apartment is perfect for two adults and two children or for four adults. Exterior doors have additional child safety locks. Clean, clean, clean.
Because Grand Bend is such a small town, the wifi networks can be jammed on some days, especially holidays, streaming is fine but is not conducive to activities like gaming. (Note: Garden pictures were taken during summer months. Blooms are seasonal.)
The lower level apartment is a unit on it’s own with two private entrances. Great room, kitchenette, BBQ, 2BR, bathroom with shower. We can provide beach towels, mats and life vests if necessary. Small appliances not included in the unit, such as blenders are also available on request. Unfortunately, the apartment is not wheelchair accessible.
We have a Pack 'n Play, if needed.
Being on the river, water safety equipment is at hand. Of course, there is no substitute for watchful parents if you have young children.

Other things to note
Tucked away in the quiet residential neighborhood of Gibbs Park, this property is on the Au Sable River, directly opposite the Grand Bend Yacht Club and the public boat launch. Take in the sail boats heading out to race or just enjoy the sweeping view of Lake Huron. Unwind in peace just one block away from all the activities, dining and shopping on Main Street or stroll to Lake Huron’s premiere beaches. As one guest cited, "Quiet, but just steps away from whatever chaos your heart desires." Spa facilities and golf at the Oakwood Resort are a five minutes’ drive. Dockage is available at competitive rates.
This is our home, so we ask that you respect it as your own. While there are areas of The Bend that can be raucous with partiers, the village has actively stepped up efforts to make the town more family friendly. We are in the quietest neighborhood. Local bi-laws require no loud music or activities after 9pm. While there are occasional disruptions, please note the citation can carry a fine of $500, and will not be the responsibility of the homeowners.
