Sunshine Cottage is in the heart of everything! Located 1/2 block from Howard St beach access, 1/2 block from Main Street where you can explore Bayfield's quaint shops, and restaurants, and 2 blocks from the splashpad & awesome playground.

Suntan on the deck while enjoying BBQ delights in the backyard with privacy hedge. This vacation home is literally the colour of sunshine! 

Inside: Living Room has a 42" TV and you can cozy up in front of the gas fireplace. 

The eat-in kitchen has everything you need! I can hear your family's boisterous laughter as you share their favorite dishes.

Their guestbook is full of stories of family enjoyment. Can't wait to add your family's enjoyment story too! 


There is 1 bedroom with 2 single beds on the main floor and an additional 2 single beds in the livingroom. Upstairs is another 3 bedrooms with queen beds (1 is a double). If it's warm every bedroom has a fan. There is a full bathroom on each floor

Extras at the cottage include a TV with DVD player and cable. Free Wi-Fi. 


The pace of life slows down in Bayfield. When you vacation here, it’s easy to experience each day to its fullest.

With both the park and downtown within view from your getaway, you’ll feel completely connected to the surrounding community. Stroll Clan Gregor Square and let the kids cool down at the splash pad, or discover your new favorite cafe or restaurant just a block away in the downtown area. Visit during the off-season to catch favorite annual events like VetteFest or for a girl's getaway weekend—we're happy to suggest our favorite local spas, wineries and breweries, shops, and yoga classes.

Just a 1/2 block away is Howard street beach access - spend an afternoon on the beach or in the water or end your days with stunning sunset views. You may catch a glimpse of a sunken shipwreck ;) Or bring your boat and launch out from the marina, just a few blocks away.


I’m Jennifer, I’m under Lake Huron’s spell, and I know you will be, too. I started CottageStays to share my own home with like-minded travelers who appreciate escaping to life at a slower pace and enjoying Huron County’s natural beauty and thriving communities. Your peace of mind is my priority, and I’m here to help make sure you have the best vacation possible.

Sunshine cottage needs work

Location and size were good. A very old home that was largely ok, but showed signs of neglect and thoughtlessness about paying guests. Some updating of decor would help, but the disrepair needs to be addressed. The lawn mowing service showed up during our stay. Here are some fixes: 1) mold on siding; 2) not enough linens for bedrooms; 3) neglected yard work and flower beds; 4) door frames and doors broken and off hinges; 5) much cleaning needed to doors especially; 6) bathroom ceiling needs paint and new fixture in downstairs; 7) vents and fan covers missing; 8) hallway lights upstairs don’t work; 9) dangerously low ceiling fans; 10) owner’s personal items everywhere; 11) light switches broken; 12) window coverings broken; 13) windows difficult to operate; 14) dirty linens and carpet; 15) used soaps in bathroom; 16) toilet paper roll bar missing; 17) inadequate supply of tissues and staple items for cooking; 18) dying plant on deck (took it inside); 19) generally sort of messy; 20) empty nails on walls. Given all of this, it was no bargain or delight to stay here.
