With covid hitting hard over the past 15+ months, Ontario has seen a huge rise in popularity of Airbnb rentals, especially adorable a-frame ones like the Hea Frame! Jenn and I had the opportunity to stay at this Sauble Beach a-frame for a few days, soaking in the beautiful surroundings, beach and of course the actual cabin itself!
More about Hea Frame:
'Newly constructed cabin on 25+ acres with access to beautiful Lake Huron. The minimalist design caters to families or small groups. The cabin is plunked in the middle of the woods, 400 ft. off of a gravel road. This is a place to truly unwind, and become one with the natural surroundings. Access to some trails is right off the deck. From here, you can explore the forest or make your way straight to the lake access where you can hop in a canoe and paddle the shoreline.'
The Great Room, located at the back of the a-frame includes wood burning fireplace, comfy sectional couch, a stereo system and mid century modern decor. Vaulted ceilings with floor to ceiling windows and sliding door access to the beautiful 34' x 14' deck. The kitchen, which is open concept and attached to the great room, includes fridge, stove, and all the equipment you'll need for your stay. There are three coffee options (drip, press and chemex). Coffee beans and tea are provided. The main floor also hosts a Master bedroom which includes a comfy queen bed with all the bedding, a dresser and window looking out over the lawn. The bathroom located on the main floor includes a claw foot tub with shower faucet. Towels, shampoo, conditioner, soaps provided. Hair dryer is available as well.
Up the gorgeous wooden stairs to the second floor are two bedrooms; bedroom two: includes a queen bed, single bed, dresser, vented skylight(! so pretty for viewing the stars from bed!) and a window. Bedroom three includes queen bed, crib or single bed, dresser, vented skylight and lookout over the great room.
Back down on the main floor there is a sitting room with large windows surrounded by trees, in here you really feel like you're in the woods. The room includes a daybed and two wing back chairs (perfect spot for your morning coffee!) You will find an abundance of games and puzzles in this room as well as an acoustic guitar.
The outdoor space is really where you want to be though! The deck off the great room includes a picnic bench with seating for 8, as well as 4 folded chairs perfect for sunning or gathering together. There is also a barbeque. Just off the steps leads you into marked trails if you want to go for a walk or head to the beach. Or head to the North side of the cabin where the main entrance is and you'll find a fire pit and outdoor games like bocce and badminton). The newest addition is a free standing cedar barrel sauna on top of the hill with a perfect view of the a-frame and fire pit area.
During our stay at the beautiful Hea Frame we were able to capture a fun engagement session with Isabella and Griffin! These two are getting married just north of Sauble Beach in Tobermory in 2022, and I can't wait until their wedding day! They joined us for the afternoon at the a-frame cabin where we enjoyed time around the property chatting and listening to music. Then as evening set in we strolled down to the water for sunset. Lake Huron is truly one of the most beautiful spots in Ontario to view the sunset, with it's calm waters and obstructed west facing views! We loved hanging with this fun and easy going couple and capturing their engagement!

While you’re in the Sauble Beach area you definitely have to be sure to check out the main attraction - the beach of course! With glorious sunsets and huge stretches of sandy beaches, it’s definitely the highlight and of course make sure to stop at the ‘Welcome to Sauble Beach’ sign for a photo op! Also try checking out some of the cute shops. Jenn and I headed into The Wellness Refinery for a late morning smoothie & a coffee for the road. They have lots of smoothie bowls & treats made in house, plus plants, jewellery, candles and other home goods by different artisans!
