Like all cottage-obsessed Canadians, we sometimes have one-track minds about how we spend our summers. And typically, that “one track” leads us north at a snail’s pace every Friday afternoon. The cottage commute may be worth it for current cottagers, but what about renters looking for a memorable cottage experience for their families—or soon-to-be cottage buyers with lakefront aspirations in other parts of Ontario?
Since we’re always trying to broaden the boundaries of what it means to be a cottager, we’re eager to explore new cottage communities and experiences. And if you’re of the same mind, one spot that’s worth your attention for the upcoming cottaging season is Sherkston Shores Beach Resort, which sits on 560 beachfront acres just two hours south of Toronto in the Niagara region. Whether you’re looking for a unique rental or planning to buy a cottage you can enjoy for years to come, here are four reasons why it’s the perfect staycation destination for making memories with loved ones next summer.
Life’s better at the beach
We love jumping off the dock as much as anyone, but there’s something special about lounging on a pristine, sandy beach while Great Lake waves lap at the shore. If you’re looking to blend your cottage experience with days on the beach, Sherkston Shores Beach Resort’s four kilometres of sandy beaches along a quiet stretch of Lake Erie will satisfy your coastal cravings. Those not craving the waves can also spend their days along the beaches of the resort’s natural Quarry, where the waters are calm as glass.
Heated pools extend your summer
Tired of lakes that are too cold for more than a timid toe-dip? Since no one should have to wait for a mid-August heatwave to go for a swim, Sherkston Shores Beach Resort guests receive FunPlex passes that include access to a variety of amenities, including two heated pools, a separate kiddie pool and splash pad, and a hot tub to turn the relaxation dial up to ten, as well as an 18-hole mini-golf course and arcade. There are also poolside lounges and a poolside Boston Pizza and patio bar when you’re in the mood for a true resort experience. And if that’s not enough, three high-speed water slides cater to anyone who likes to punctuate the perfect weekend with a burst of adrenaline.
Enjoy the water in endless ways
While many of us could spend all summer lounging poolside or on the beach, Sherkston Shores Beach Resort also features plenty of other ways to enjoy the water. Cottage and cabin renters and owners can also rent sea trikes, kayaks, paddle boats, canoes, standup paddleboards, and snorkelling equipment on the resort—all without having to worry about transporting, launching, and maintaining their boats or equipment. But if you do have a boat or watercraft of your own, feel free to bring that along and launch on Lake Erie for a day of tubing or fishing. And that’s just the beginning. Whether you’re staying for a weekend, a full week, or the entire summer, your cabin or cottage rental comes with free FunPlex passes, giving you access to the beaches, Quarry, waterpark, unlimited mini-golf, and more.
It’s so much more than a rental
If long-term cottaging is your calling, but you don’t want to deal with the endless chore lists and maintenance challenges that come with certain cottage properties, Sherkston Shores cottage ownership might be for you (starting in the low to mid $100Ks). In addition to all the rental perks and attractions, cottage owners receive year-round 24-hour security, maintenance, landscaping and garbage pickup, as well as exclusive amenities like a fitness centre, lounges, clubhouses and unlimited access to the water parks and beaches—plus a jam-packed entertainment schedule for adults, families, and children of all ages. Not only are there walking trails, a beach boardwalk, two dog parks, and a dog beach for you to enjoy, but you’ll also receive unlimited guest passes for friends and family to visit too!
