About Stan Franjkovic
I purchased the Pinery Bluffs Chalet as a vacation home in 2001. I love the proximity to the Pinery Provincial Park and its beautiful beaches, trails and Carolinian style forest. My love of nature, wildlife, the Lake Huron habitat and warmer climate influenced my purchase of this property. My family and I have spend a lot of summers on the sandy beaches playing in the sand and watching the gorgeous Lake Huron sunsets.

Why Stan Franjkovic chose Lambton Shores
Pinery Bluffs Chalet may well be the loveliest house you ever set foot in. A Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design on three levels, with walkouts and balconies at each, mean that all rooms feel spacious and well lit, no matter what the temperature is outside. The furniture is elegant, and well-coordinated! The overall effect is so relaxing, that even when the weather is perfect, as it often is in this sheltered spot, you may seriously have to ask yourself whether you want to leave this harmony and elegance, even for a few hours. 'This is a review from Stella Body'
What makes this House unique
This chalet is in a rare oak savannah forest, unique to the shores of Lake Huron. There is an abundance of wildlife including deer, wild turkey, it is a birder's paradise. You are cycling distance from the 9 beaches of Pinery's sandy shore on Lake Huron, where you can relax in the warmest Great Lake water in Ontario, or step up into the dunes to snap shots of California-style whitecaps, and savannah grasses drifting in the breeze. This year round park offers activities for every season such as canoeing, hiking, biking and cross country ski trails. There is a year round nature centre at the park, and indoor/outdoor programs presented by a naturalist.

Great stay with big family group
We just got back from our weeklong stay at this amazing house. We were a family group of 10-12 adults (not all stayed the whole week) and 6 kids 5 and under. The house was even better than we were anticipating. It is very spacious. The house has a large kitchen that housed our too-many cooks. The front porch you see in the main picture that over looks the driveway was a nice relaxing place to enjoy your morning coffee or just relax any time of the day. It is hard to tell from the picture but it is a huge porch. The house has 3 levels of sleeping spaces. The extra dining area and fridge upstairs were helpful. Stan, the owner, was very thoughtful, and left baby gates in the house for us, as well as let us use a stroller the house ad, as well as some toys. The booking process for this home was very easy, and dealing with Jane at Bluewater Cottage rentals was great, she was very responsive to emails and helpful with all our questions. The house also included 3 annual passes to the provincial park, which was awesome, because the house is 5 minutes from the park, and someone (if not all of us) were there most days, some days just to watch the sunset. The house has a fully stocked kitchen, which we took full advantage of. On the main floor there is a sunken fire pit area, which we didnt use as a fireplace because it was warm, but it was a perfect place to keep the kids and their toys contained. There is also an outdoor firepit area which we used a few of the nights. It is a large area that we could all sit around.
The house itself is in a secluded wooded area and has a very private feel. The huge driveway was great for the kids to run up and down and color with chalk. The many balconies were even more nice spaces to hang out in.
We all had a wonderful stay at this house, I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Jenny and her group of family & friends where one of the nicest and most respectful we ever had. I understand they travelled from both,Canada and USA to meet at one central location. They left our home in immaculate condition. . I hope that they all come back .
We had a fantastic time in Grand Bend. The property was clean and welcoming when we arrived. It had everything we were looking for to accommodate our large family and it had everything we needed for cooking our meals or barbecuing. We enjoyed having the Pinery passes also. The fire-pit was perfectly located for evening fires and sing songs. The location was nice and private. I would not hesitate in recommending this property.

Girls Weekend 2018
This property is amazing! We were a group of 9 with plenty of room for sleeping - house was huge and absolutely beautiful! Stunning views. Large dining area in which we all had room to sit around the dining room table to enjoy dinner and chat. A gorgeous deck that we all had room to sit on and enjoy a morning coffee. House has windows everywhere to enjoy the view. A gorgeous living room area with television and fireplace to enjoy. We loved our campfire outside at night as well! Walking trails close by and the Pinery within walking distance. Some of us enjoyed a morning run along the trail while others enjoyed relaxing on the property. Close to Grand Bend too! HIghly recommend!
This cottage is amazing! Lots of space, impeccably clean, all the amenities you could need to have a great beach vacation. Beach is pretty close and is beautiful. The house is also great for kids! Our boys were able to run and play at their hearts content. Great fire pit space for marshmallows and wonderful area. Owners are super friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be back!
