The Red Bay Lodge was first opened to guests in 1949 in Red Bay on the Beautiful Bruce Peninsula. The rustic Red Bay Lodge is situated by Lake Huron, just a stone’s throw from the sandy Red Bay Beach in South Bruce Peninsula. An easy drive for day trips, 72 km’s south of Tobermory, 30km’s south of Lion’s Head, and only 20 km’s north of world-famous Sauble Beach.

The 18,000 square foot resort includes 7000 square feet of common space, including a “Great Room” with a large stone fireplace, a rustic dining room, popular both with guests and locals, and a 3000 square foot deck, sitting amongst the trees, under the stars.

The property boasts 8 newly-renovated (2020) rooms in the lodge, and 15 one and two bedroom cabins, all being renovated in 2021.

It all started in 1949, on The Bruce Peninsula.


Generations of families have enjoyed vacationing at the Red Bay Lodge, and exploring everything the Bruce Peninsula has to offer, including sunsets, rocks, beaches, cliffs, fishing, shipwrecks, trails, and the world biosphere. The Bruce Peninsula is a dark sky community and you have to be here to appreciate the millions of stars on a clear night, and maybe even get a chance to see the Aurora Borealis. It took millions of years for sediments to compress into the richly-layered, rugged coastline of the Bruce Peninsula. From small villages such as Red Bay encased in ancient forests, to meandering trails and coastline, much of it remains authentically beautiful, rugged and untouched.  

Imagine yourself spending the day at the beach, or exploring one of the peninsula’s outstanding trails, offering a variety of all difficulties and lengths.  Perhaps shopping is more your style.  There are many local artisans and handicraft outposts on the Bruce, ready for you to visit.
