Wow! Just wanted to get away and found this little gem. Under New Owner ship, just a week ago. Chris and Nikki, are doing a fantastic job. Super clean cabins, fully stalked with cooking tools and tv but there is only a fire stick, you need a prime or Netflix account. Not an issue, i do! Brand new BBQ. Fish cleaning hunt, free kayak and canoes. There are pontoons to rent, which really was a nice ride last night. Every room in the cabins have ceiling fans, huge bonus. I was lucky enough to see the big cabin that sleeps lots with 3 bedrooms. There are hook ups for RV as well. Restaurant and variety store near buy. Only 40 mins from Northbay, reasonable rates. The views from Lake Nipissing area breathtaking. Small resort which I love. 5 cabins and a “clamping cabin”, room with beds. Things will need some updating but this couple will have no problems getting this place where it needs to be. Im excited for them in the future. Call and book, you won’t be sorry.

​It was an amazing experience.
We booked the cottage for 3 nights during Canada Day long weekend. Upon arrival, we received a warm welcome from Nikki, Chris, and their family. They are the new owners who just took over the property. We unfortunately did not bring any linens, but they were nice to offer us some for free. They installed new BBQ and are in the process of upgrading the place. They were super friendly and always available for any questions we might have. We being their 1st guests, they providedus with a decent discount on the boat rental. They were very understanding as we got used to their policies. Few things to note before you go: the water there has a weird taste and smell, so highly recommend taking your own drinking water. There’s a lot of bugs/mosquitoes, so make sure you’re prepared, especially during nights. There’s a restaurant/bar and a convenient store about 4km from the cottage. The road to the cottage is unpaved. Overall, it was an amazing experience, and I would definitely return soon!

​Quaint atmosphere.
Kayak / canoe / wakeboard / paddleboard included was a bonus. Everyone had their own personal bonfire spot. Jim and Mimi were exceptional hosts. As the week went on, the guests became closer - Great  camaraderie! Cabins are fully equipped and extremely clean. Totally recommend ordering a pontoon. We had a blast! Caught lots of fish and went to the Sand bar often. Very family orientated. Enjoyed ourselves so much, we made reservations for 2021 already!

Beautiful and relaxing!
This is the place to be for the summer time. We have so much fun during our stays. From fishing and jet skis to relaxing with a book while lounging by the lake. We enjoy it all! Note that Jim and Mimi are excellent hosts and have taken wonderful care of the property. You don’t be disappointed!

Amazing place…
We had a blast at West Bay Cottages. Hospitality was amazing.. Great lake view from all cottages. The fishing was amazing and the hut to clean and cut fish for eating is a bonus. Great place will definitely will be going back for a 3rd year.

Nice small resort!
This was my second year at WestBay Cottage. Mimi and Jim are great hosts; always looking after your well-being and enquiring how they can assist you. Great variety of water sport equipment – from paddle board…to fishing/ boating. The cottages are clean, comfortable and efficient. A great place to stay with a family or friends!

Vacation at West Bay Cottages
Very helpful and friendly staff. Didn’t matter what we needed help with or advice on, they were there to help and made it a great vacation.

Kids loved the fishing, and mom and dad loved the peaceful views and water fun! Very scenic lake with so many great spots to discover on boat or jetski!

Small But Fun!
Have been there twice. This is a small place very close to the water. Has 5 or 6 cottages. It is a good location to sit and watch the kids playing in the water. They have lots of water toys to play with. There is a store in Lavigne for the basic supplies the rest can be found in Sturgeon falls a 1/2 hour away. For motor sports they do rent fishing boats, and seadoos. The owners are super people.

Rustic but has all amenities
Let me begin by saying that both Jim and Mimi were wonderful hosts. They were around and helpful but gave us plenty of privacy and space. The cottage is rustic but has all amenities you could need and the view is spectacular. We also rented a pontoon boat for a few hours. The lake was quiet and so peaceful. Very calm and relaxed atmosphere all around!
