No reservations required.

What's so special about a sunset in Port Elgin you ask? I mean every place has a sunset, right? We could tell you how great it is watching the sun paint the day's memories on the blank canvas over Lake Huron (too much?) but we woudn't do it justice. 

You'd be better off to ask some of the many people who gather at the shoreline to watch the sunset what they think. Or better still, come up and see it for yourself. After all we might be a bit biased. 

Have a look around the website and find a place to stay, find a favourite place to eat and of course do a little shopping. We'll see you down at the lake for the next sunset. No reservations are required - and we'll save you a spot!
