Sauble BeachAs real estate agents who specialize in Sauble Beach, let us be your guides to what Sauble Beach Ontario has to offer as a neighbourhood to finding homes for sale in the area.
The first settler is reported to have been John Eldridge, who built a cottage nearby in 1877, although most of the resort development of the modern beach area dates from about 1948, the main street has remained relatively untouched in the past 50 years.
At over 11 kms long, Sauble Beach is said to be the second longest freshwater beach in the world after Wasaga Beach. Sandbar deposits along the Lake Huron shoreline keeps the water at Sauble very shallow and warm.
Recreational Activities are numerous and include swimming, windsurfing, water-skiing, fishing, golfing, lawn bowling, tennis, street dances, beach volleyball, camping, hiking, weekly Family Movie Nights and an annual sandcastle contest. The Canadian National (Beach) Volleyball Championships have been held there, and the local Sauble Speedway is on the CASCAR professional racing circuit. The Sauble Beach Festival of the Classical Guitar has been held here since 2007. Don’t forget to try SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding), Jet Skiing, and body surfing!
Sauble Beach may quiet down in the fall and winter but there are still plenty of events and activities to keep permanent residents busy. The beach is empty and the sunsets are still spectacular. Get outside and enjoy hiking, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and snowmobiling.
While a hot summer long weekend can see the resident count soar to over 100,000, Sauble Beach is the permanent year-round home to approximately 2,000 people. The cottage owners add thousands of seasonal community members, some who stay through the spring to fall time period and others who retreat to Sauble on weekends. Cottage owners are uniquely split between owners who own property outright and cottages that are located on the Native lands. A lease relationship between the Saugeen First Nation and these cottagers have allowed for almost 3,000 seasonal homes to be built. The Saugeen First Nation benefits from this land lease rental and cost sharing for services and is administered through the Band and Indian Affairs in Ottawa.
There are plenty of local businesses that offer retail and services for hardware, appliance and grocery shopping, restaurants and hotels, fire and police services, daycare and a medical clinic.
