The Summer House 538 Elgin St. Port Elgin, ON.

The Summer House in Port Elgin, Ontario, is a beautifully renovated, century farmhouse situated on leafy Elgin Street in the heart of one of Ontario's best beach towns.  Stroll to nearby shops, restaurants, the library or movie theatre.  For a day at the main beach, walk, bike or drive down Elgin Street (1km) to the sandy expanses and beautiful shallow waters of Lake Huron.  A marina, public boat ramp, paddle board rentals and yoga are all there to be enjoyed.

Take in our spectacular sunsets, cycle or walk a variety of trails, or rent a kayak or canoe and spend the day on the idyllic Saugeen River.  Jump on the trolley and travel from Port Elgin to nearby Southampton to explore the High Street and beach there.

Saugeen Shores is the perfect place to relax, recharge and reconnect with family and friends. For local attractions please visit the ATTRACTIONS page.
