About the property

Minutes Walk From The Beach, Parks, Shops And Restaurants

Nanny's Place has all the convenience of a modern home nestled into a beach side village setting. Our guests enjoy everything the village has to offer including boutiques, shops, restaurants and galleries within a short walk.

They enjoy the best sunsets in Canada (according to National Geographic) and the Bayfield River is home to a commercial fishery (with a fresh lake fish market) and an ever changing collection of luxury yachts.

The Bayfield beach is Blue Flag designated for its environmental quality and safety.

There is much to discover in Huron County including Goderich (one of the prettiest towns in Canada), popular summer theatres and some exceptional golf courses, all a short drive away.

Bayfield is colorful in autumn and beautiful in winter making it a true four season get away.

Perfect Spot - Could not have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed at Nanny's Place for an extended period while we visited family and friends in the area. We could not have had a better place to call our 'home away from home' during our stay. Nanny's Place had everything (and more!) that we needed. We would definitely recommend to others and would stay again. Thanks for sharing Nanny's Place with us!

Very Attractive Home

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home. Well appointed. Excellent location. Unfortunately it was a VERY hot week and we found the back deck too hot to use! It was wonderful to have access to bikes for both adults and youngsters. We would return.

Nanny's Place Gave Us The Best Family Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

The more time we spend in Bayfield, the better the experience gets. This year, we stayed at Nanny's Place, and it was by far the best cottage yet! We have 4 children (7, 5, 3 and 10 weeks old) and it never felt cramped once with it's open concept layout. The quality and condition of the cottage was a 10/10. The bedrooms were all very large and incredibly well decorated. Although we had 3 large bedrooms to use, all 3 of our children took advantage of the kids bunk beds with slide out 3rd bed.

The large, private backyard proved to be very handy when chasing each other with water guns. Thank gawd there were a ton of large tree's providing great shade to the cottage as the week we were there proved to be one of the hottest weeks of the summer. (if you're susceptible to heat, you may want to bring an extra fan or 2).

Nanny's Place was beautifully located in the town of Bayfield. Walking distance to the park, downtown and an incredible private beach, we never felt the urge to drive.

Bayfield is a great town for a young family, with a lot of fun things to do, art camps to participate in, and a unique culture all to it's own.

Quiet, peaceful retreat close a stunning beach and beautiful historic village.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a blissful week at Nanny's place in Bayfield. The cottage is bright, modern, impeccably clean, nicely decorated and with all the amenities you could want. We enjoyed morning coffee on the quiet back deck and ended our day with a glass of wine In the same place. The spectacular beach was a short five minute walk and never crowded or noisy. in the mornings have the beach to yourself! The Main Street is far enough away for a quiet stay but close enough to walk to a delicious lunch or dinner out. Nanny's place has all, location, comfort and the peace you crave on vacation. We will be rebooking next year!

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

A few minute walk to the main street with shops, cafes and restaurants. A few minute walk to beaches. A spacious place to stay for the seven of us. The kitchen was nice and large to prepare and serve meals. We enjoyed our stay at Nanny's Place.
