Our week at O'Leary's was nothing less than perfect (including the weather!). The cottage we stayed in fit our needs perfect and aside from bedding everything was provided. It was very clean and well kept as well. It's apparent that the owners main concern is making sure every guest is happy and comfortable! We have already made our reservations for... More

The cottage we had (Huron) might be billed as cozy and rustic, but it was a bit small for our needs and was a bit run down at the heels - not bad, but could have been better for sure. Our host was very helpful and accommodating and offered the use of a bunky for our guests to stay in... More

The location is great, 2 minutes and your close to the beach and all its amenities. The rates are reasonable and the lot is quite quaint, hosting 11 cottage units ranging in sizes to accomadate couples or families. Nestled in a natural landscaped setting which allowed the birds in trees to be close by for viewing, chickadees and robins to... More

We stayed at Oleary's last summer for the first time. We had an awesome time and have booked for this summer today. Our cottage was clean and was a short walk to the beach. Looking forward to our holiday at Oleary's:)

We found O'Learys Beach Retreat online last year and absolutely loved our experience. As seasoned travellers, we demand clean accommodations and our cottage exceeded our expectations. Can't say enough about the owners and the fellow cottagers we met. It's hard to highlight the positives.....there were so many! The location and just the cozy feeling of being home, away from home.... More

I loved our cottage. Exceptionally clean and the location was perfect. One block off of Sauble Beach in the heart of paradise. So close to everything we didn't need to use the car all week. We're already planning our vacation there this summer!

We travelled with a 3 yrs. old toddler. Close to the beach and restaurants. Parking was closed to cottage. We loved the BBQ, the fire pit and the sandbox next to cottage. I needed more privacy and nature. We live in Toronto. The other cottages were just to close for me.

We spent a few days here for a special family celebration. The accommodations were perfect, anything we needed we got from the manager. The beach is just a very short walk away, also a number of fun shops on the Main Street to visit. There are different sized cabins available to suit your needs. Each cabin is very well supplied....

Not normally do I submit a poor review unless the service requires it, but in this case our experience did not match up with previous reviews. At $95 per night in early September, one would have expected more value. While everything worked in the cottage and the owner did show up to provide keys and instructions, the buildings and grounds... More

“Loved Ontario but will probably book the Superior cottage next time because having a fire pit in the back was hard since we have little kids. Superior has a fire pit right out front so you can put the kids to bed and then have a nice fire!”
