Sauble Beach is a resort community on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, At over seven miles long (11 km), Sauble Beach is said to be the second longest freshwater beach in the world after Wasaga Beach. Recreational activities include swimming, windsurfing, water-skiing, fishing, golfing, lawn bowling, tennis, street dances, beach volleyball, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, birding, an annual Winterfest, weekly Family Movie Nights and an annual sandcastle contest. The Canadian National (Beach) Volleyball Championships have been held there, and the local Steelback Sauble Speedway is on the CASCAR professional racing circuit. The main street has remained relatively untouched in the past 50 years so there is a real retro look and feel that tourists love.
Real Estate Profile
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 those who own property outright and cottages that are located on the Native lands. A lease relationship between the Saugeen Nation and these cottagers have allowed for almost 3,000 seasonal homes to be built. The Saugeen 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 a number of 40-50 year old deveopments with an interesting variety of homes. Many older and newer cottages stretch close to the beach area offering an interesting selection
