We rented a three bedroom cottage here and it was amazing. The cottages are SUPER clean ( rentals rarely are!) and its well equipped. The cottages have a east coast Nantucket feel - they have managed to keep the character of the cottages while adding a coastal touch to them. Charmingly simple, clean and efficient. The cottages are private and the area is quiet. They have generous decks with BBQs and plenty of seating. The whole grounds within this little resort are well maintained and the beach is gorgeous. The owners Darren and Sarah are amazing. Darren was welcoming and his kind deposition makes you feel at home the minute you get here. There are canoes, kayaks and a paddle board for renters to share. Motor boat rentals are also available. The location is perfect. Its close to grocery stores, restaurants and North Bay is a stone's throw away.
We will be back !
Room Tip: The cottages are spaced out perfectly to allow privacy and plenty of roaming and parking space.

Family Day Weekend Ice Fishing
(Reviewed on TripAdvisor, February 2017)
We spent Family Day weekend at Sunbeam so we could experience ice fishing for the first time. Right from the get go the overall experience with Darren at Sunbeam was well above and beyond the best customer service!! He responded very quickly to all emails and very detailed, left very little to question about the overall trip. He made all arrangements for us with the Outfitter. The cottage was spotless to say the least, very cozy and provided all the comforts of home. We were truly amazed, it was better than we ever imagined. The location was PERFECT and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets in the evening, and awesome deck out front with BBQ and firepit for enjoyable evenings after a day of fishing. Very close to town, where you find groceries, restaurants if you choose, LCBO, bank, a cool record store, etc. The ice fishing was well planned out as well and we absolutely loved it and had a lot of fun both on and off the ice back at the cottage. The best part, wish I could narrow it down, but the whole weekend was just so spectacular. The least was that my husband left his clothes behind in a dresser drawer LOL, but then along came Darren AGAIN to provide his superior service and actually sent the clothes to us via Canada Post at his expense, so now we don't get to go back to this AWESOME place to pick them up. Well, at least not right away, but I can tell you we will definitely be back!!!! If I could rate more than 5 above, I could easily double it!!! Thanks again to Darren and Sarah and Sunbeam Bungalows for a truly memorable weekend and the superior hospitality.
Room Tip: Based on what we see on the website, all rooms are a true representation, and all are very nice.

Love this place
(Reviewed on TripAdvisor, August 2016)
Wow, we just came back from a week spent here and absolutely loved it! We cannot say enough about the accommodating nature of Darren and his attention to detail to make sure the property is at its finest. A good judge of that is when you see him spending time every day from early morning until later evening doing tasks to keep everything well groomed and manicured, not to mention the workers we saw regularly working outside with various tasks to keep things looking good. From helping us get our US currency exchanged to making sure we had the proper skillet we needed to accommodate our family, Darren was willing to go the extra mile, which we appreciated. The cottages were clean and well-stocked with the appropriate cookware and utensils, as well as gas grill. The TV was great to watch the Olympics as we could, as well as access to the DVD player and internet. We did not have time to borrow any DVD's, but we were also very impressed with the long list of titles to choose from, sure to please everyone in your family. The beach was immaculate and the pier with several lounge chairs was very nice, both offering plenty of room for everyone on the premises to enjoy. Every cottage was rented during our stay and I must say, I never felt like things were too crowded or that the canoes, kayaks, etc were unavailable. We also really enjoyed the cookout, what a nice spread and good way to meet others. We did not get to the beach bonfire with live music, but heard it was very nice as well. The boats were just as stated and we used them daily, enjoying the lake to its fullest. Need I say more?! This is the place to relax and have fun - you won't be disappointed.
Room Tip: The cottages are all good, depending on the number in your party, serving couples or families.
Slice of paradise!

Just left the resort this morning after a fantastic week spent fishing and relaxing with my family at sunbeam! We spent our days playing at the shallow entry beach (great for little ones), and utilizing the kayak's, canoe's, etc (great for the bigger ones too, ages 12 and 13). In the evenings, we went for boat rides and fished until after dark! All resort areas are kept impeccably clean and well maintained. Our cottage was clean and cozy, and was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare and cook our meals. The use of the private fishing boat (included with cottage rental) was a big hit, and always lots of fun for our boys. Need wood, worms or ice? Just ask! Darren and family will have it brought right to your cabin, no need to go off site for these necessities. The owners are always around, and happy to help with any requests, questions or issues that may arise. This was our second summer vacation spent at sunbeam and we have already started talking about plans to return next year. Thanks again for a great week!
