Recently we were given a weekend away as a family at the amazing Sherkston Shores Beach Resort. When I received the email I had no idea what Sherkston Shores Beach Resort was but a weekend away at a cottage with access to the lake and pools sounded perfect for my little family so I quickly responded with a yes we would love to go! The first thing we loved about Sherkston Shores was that the drive there from our home was much shorter and nicer drive than driving to Muskoka so that was a plus in all of our books! We arrived shortly after dinner time and were greeted by a really sweet girl at the gates. (we loved the fact that the grounds are monitored 24/7 by security and the grounds are gated so you don’t have to worry about public access to the grounds) Once we parked and entered the reception area once again we were greeted by a really kind girl who checked us in super quickly (which all the mamas out there get how key that is when you have just been in the car with 3 little people for an extended time and not to mention the were super excited to get exploring) and sent us on our way with our keys and wrist bands which gave us entrance into the pools, watersides and splash pad.

 

Within a few minutes we found our little cottage and we were blown away by how nice the cottage was. Our cottage had 3 bedrooms a full kitchen and bath with a beautiful living room and wrap around deck that was fully gated! (win win for this mama) My hubby and I enjoyed the master bedroom with a large Queen bed while our oldest kids shared a room that had a set of twin size bunk beds. The baby got her own room that had a set of bunk beds as well and all the bedrooms came with tvs and cable in the room but we didn’t have time to watch them! (we also had wifi since I know your all dying to know) Our main living quarters was spacious and very modernly decorated with a pull out couch and oversized chair for lounging and a 7 piece dinning room set as well as a patio table and chairs on the porch. So lots of space for entertaining which is awesome! If you follow me on Instagram and watched my Instastories you will already know but when we arrived they had graciously left us yummy snacks both healthy and some not so healthy as well as filled our fridge and even left us a bottle of wine!

 

 

The kids were dying to check the place out so after we got settled into our cottage we loaded up on the golf cart to tour the park and we quickly realized this place is huge! 560 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds that includes 2 and a half miles of beach!

 

Sherkston Shores Beach Resort is really a campers (or glamper if you’re like me) dream! There is something for everyone from tent sites, RV sites, cabin rentals, cottage rentals, seasonal RV stays, to even seasonal vacation cottage ownerships. After touring the grounds my hubby was already to buy a place for us to spend our summers there! Sherkston Shores offers an opportunity for you to sit back and relax at the beach, swim in the quarry, play volleyball, soccer or take part in a round of mini-golf (all 18 holes) or try climbing their Aerial challenge course or rock wall. In addition if your not a beach person or find the lake too cold in the earlier spring or fall days they offer 2 heated pools, 3 watersides, 2 splash pads and a hot tub as well for their guests and owners. Sherkston Shores is open from May 1 – October 31 yearly and they offer so many amazing things for their owners and guests including fireworks on Saturday evenings throughout the summer! You can really tell that they have worked hard to make this resort very family focused and personally think they have done a fantastic job of making the place not only aesthetically look gorgeous but they have provided lots of security to keep you safe and have offered things that really make family time a priority! There is a Boston Pizza right on site that you can enjoy on the nights you don’t feel like cooking (we definitely took advantage of that) and we even enjoyed playing (and by we I mean the hubby and the kids) in the arcade after dinner.

 

 

 

Our family seriously had the best weekend and my kids can’t stop asking when we are going back – which we are working on booking! This post isn’t even sponsored we just had such a great time I wanted to share this – in my opinion- gem of a place with you my friends incase you are looking for a place to take your family this summer!!

 

Don’t be fooled by these smiles they were all tears when we said goodbye later that evening! We can’t say thank you enough to the awesome people at Sherkston Shores Beach Resort for the best kick off to our summer and for an unforgettable weekend away with our little family – we will be back!

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
  • Kissing another weekend goodbye but it was a good one! Anyone else wondering  where September went and how is it October tomorrow already!? Exciting things are happening in October so I’m not complaining but I feel like I blinked and September was over!
