We're opening our newest motel in Sauble Beach as of Labour Day Weekend. Usually, that's a time to celebrate the end of summer...but we're choosing to celebrate more summer! Here's a look at what a laidback escape to Sauble Beach looks like this fall.
4PM CHECK-IN AT THE JUNE
Welcome to Sauble Beach! In Sauble, we operate with a sunset state of mind. Here, it’s all about living on beach time, in flip flops, with the people you love. Check-in at The June with a can of welcome rosé. Kick back on your patio hammock and relax after a long drive.
This is one of our King rooms at the motel. We think of it as authentically retro and perfectly beachy.
6PM WINE AND DINE AT HEYDAYS
Head down to our on site restaurant for a meal full of coastal classics and old school favourites. It’s the ultimate summer patio — you’ll be hanging out under string lights with feel good music, and enjoying farm fresh eats and international wine. Start off strong with Fred’s very own Alice Waters salad and steak frites paired with a glass of smooth red.
8:00PM CATCH THE SUNSET
Time to find out what Sauble Beach is really famous for: its magical sunsets! The best way to watch the sun melt into Lake Huron is from a boat. Book your sunset cruise through Bruce Peninsula Boat Tours to make the most of your laidback escape.
8:30AM BEACH YOGA
There’s nothing quite so grounding as doing a relaxing yoga class on the beach. Sure, it’s sandy, but the sound of the waves and the fresh air feels so good! After you detox, we’ll retox back at the A-Frame Lobby with a can of hard kombucha.
11AM BRUNCH AT HEYDAYS
Think smoked salmon benny, lobster scrambled eggs and the avocado toast of your dreams. Head back down to the patio and have at it! Note, we only serve brunch on weekends! If you're with us during the week, ask one of our staff about where to grab some morning grub. Sauble has some classic eggs and bacon spots, coffee and pastry shops and a wellness café too.
12PM CHILL, POOLSIDE
Now’s the time to really relax. We consider the pool to be the heart of this property. Read under the shade of our umbrellas, or catch some rays right from the pool — maybe float around in an inner tube. P.S we have a licensed area on the pool deck which allows for food and beverage service. Frosé at the pool, anyone?
4PM SUNSET PADDLEBOARD
There’s nothing dreamier than a summer afternoon on calm waters. Rent a SUP board from Jack n Jills on main street, and head out for a pre golden hour adventure. This isn’t something you do everyday, but it’s a memory that will last. Try not to fall!
6:30PM DINNER AND LAWN GAMES AT HEYDAYS
Keep the light hearted competition going by heading back to the motel for a late dinner accompanied by some retro games. We’ve got shuffleboard and corn hole right beside the restaurant patio, and you can be serviced there too! Treat yourself to the hot buttered lobster roll, hot and crispy fries and a charred broccoli caesar salad.
8:30PM AFFOGATO AND SUNSET
One of our favourite Sauble rituals is enjoying a golden hour affogato, right before sunset. If you didn’t know, an adffogato consists of fresh vanilla ice cream with rich espresso melted on top. It’s dreamy and such a decadent treat. You can try this out at Beach House Cottages and Café, about a 45 minute walk along the beach or a 5 minute drive.
10AM COFFEE AND SHOPPING IN THE LOBBY
Before you head out for the day, come by for a fresh cup of hot coffee and a locally baked croissant. They’re our weakness! While you’re in the lobby, maybe pop on your favourite record and relax in one of our lounging areas, or browse through our Motelier curated gift shop, which is inspired by female founders we’re collaborating with and look up to!
11AM PACK UP AND HEAD TO THE BEACH
It might be time to check out, but your weekend isn’t over just yet! Soak up your last insta-worthy moments at the motel and head to the beach for a few hours of sunshine and swimming! We suggest driving down as far as you can along the main street and trying to find a quiet spot. Grab a couple of snacks from the lobby — trail mix, cookies, sparkling water and cold pressed juice are up for grabs.
3PM WALK AND SHOP AT SAUBLE’S FINEST
Sauble is a charming town, with a main strip full of small boutiques and shops carrying clothing, home decor and accessories. We love Grit and Grace for a beautiful sundress, The Garage Clothing Co. for comfy classics and The Patch for vintage tees and repurposed Levis! If you’re looking for a souvenir, Jack n Jills sells the dreamiest Sauble Beach sweaters and tees. The best way to shop is with a coffee in hand, and we love Amicis on main street for just that.... plus they have amazing coffee!!
4:30PM AFTERNOON REFUEL AT THE WELLNESS REFINERY
Before you drive back to the city, check out one of our favourite places in Sauble. In fact, it’s place that made us fall hard for this beach town in the first place. The Wellness Refinery is a smoothie bar, café and lifestyle boutique serving up the best bowls, toasts and speciality lattes around. Plus, there’s a health and wellness shop area full of natural supplements.
As you leave Sauble Beach behind, remember to fill out your postcard and mail it to someone you love...maybe even invite them to join your next getaway to the beach.
