About Sheena & Jacob

Our names are Jacob & Sheena. We are both born and raised in Northern Ontario. To be specific, Jacob was raised in Goulais River which is why we recently bought this fantastic cottage. We recently returned to Sault Ste Marie after being in Manitoba for 7 years due to our career paths. We always planned on living in our cottage which we have during the winter months. Over the past 3 years, we have been renting our cottage out and our guests have always thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We decided that we were going to keep our cottage for everyone to enjoy, including ourselves.

We both enjoy the wilderness and the many activities that Goulais Bay and the surrounding area, has to offer such as; fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, ATV riding, scuba diving, snowmobiling, skiing, etc. When we are not out being adventurous and traveling, we enjoy spending quality time with our family.

Traveling is one of our passions; therefore, we understand the importance of quality service and are committed in ensuring our guests are pleased with their stay at Superior Beachfront Cottages.

Sheena & Jacob purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sheena & Jacob chose Goulais River

The unique thing about our property is that it provides guests with two cottages on one property and can sleep up to 13 people. It provides guests with complete privacy as these are the only two cottages on the property. Our cottages are also beachfront. Children really enjoy the beach and the shallow waters.

Great cottage, great beach, great water access

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at the cottage near the end of October. The weather wasn't the best, but the cottage was excellent - everything we were looking for. It was a breeze to check in and out. We ordered pizza from the local pizza place on the first night, and it was great. We met a couple of the neighbours and their dogs, all who were friendly and played with our dog. We had a campfire one afternoon before the rain came and it was very nice. It was a super quiet are when we went - weekdays at the end of October.

Beautiful Beach front location

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property as a meeting point for a family vacation. We managed to accommodate 7 adults and 5 children comfortably between the loft and main cabin. The Beach was perfect. It was sandy and you were able to walk out several hundred feet and it still be waste deep, perfect for kids. Being right on the water gave us several opportunities to see those beautiful sunsets. Owners were attentive and supplied us with an extra propane tank. We will definitely consider returning to this property in the future.

Beautiful Spot

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is on a nice sandy beach with a spectacular view. The water is shallow for a long way so great for kids but you have to walk out quite a ways to swim. The water is like crystal and just lovely to swim in if you are lucky like we were and have a warm week. The firepit at the beach is great and you can sit a lot of people around it. The stars up there were amazing. The cottage is very clean and well kept. The water is supposed to be safe for drinking but it is a bit yellow and smells a bit sulphury so we bought jugs for the water cooler at Walmart for 4.97 plus deposit. This is the cheapest place we found. We rented the loft too and it was very good for the 4 young men who stayed there. We were a family of 11 so having a place for the young ones was a blessing. The master has a queen that is really comfy and the single bed in one room is OK but the futon is almost impossible to sleep on and the double bed with the bunk on top was not comfortable at all. After a week on it my back was a mess. That was the only downside. Probably be OK for kids. The area is remote but there are cottages on either side. It was very quiet while we were up. We rented a canoe from Caribou Expeditions in Goulais River and really enjoyed having it. The bay is safe to paddle on even for the inexperienced because it is very shallow. Nice to watch the sunset from the water although they are also great from the beach. The sunsets there are incredible.

Great holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family from the surrounding area decided to all meet up at this location. It was perfect for our family as there's three bedrooms with additional sleeping in the living room, it fit all of us perfectly. It has everything you need for a nice family gathering. Outdoor seating, little sand box beside the deck, beach, beach toys for the kids, the water was also shallow so it was safe for the kids! We really enjoyed the beautiful sunsets every night! The area was great to take nature walks as well. It was nice to get away from the busy city life! We had everything we needed.
