Visitors to Long Point are very curious about the elegant, two-story building standing where two motels and a small trailer park used to be. For more than 80 years, families have come to the corner of Highway #59 and Erie Boulevard every summer – to vacation and make memories. This was a main motivator for the Bouck Family, who say the history of the property and how much it was loved served as inspiration to design and build Long Point Beach Club on the half-hectare site. The building has 18 fully-furnished seasonal vacation condominiums, each with a private terrace or balcony and an unobstructed view of Lake Erie. If that weren’t incentive enough to buy your own piece

of beach heaven, owners will be able to see an immediate return on investment: when not in use, suites can be rented out by Long Point Beach Club management. At the heart of the concept for the vacation condos was to ensure people had the relaxing time away they deserve. “There is no grass to cut or leaves to rake, no roofs to repair or windows to replace,” explains Jeff Bouck. “We wanted a fresh take on the old cottage-style family vacation yet never wanted to lose sight of the main goal: making it a friendly, welcoming place where families and friends come to spend quality time together at the lake.” Besides the many like-minded family cottagers and coastal businesses, other neighbours include Bird Studies Canada, Canadian Wildlife Federation, Nature Conservancy Canada, and the Ministry of Natural Resources. This is because The Long Point Beach Club sits peacefully within the boundaries of the Long Point UNESCO World Biosphere. Adds Bouck: “Whether you enjoy birding, fishing, boating, golfing, horseback riding or simply enjoying the beach; nothing compares to the natural beauty of Long Point.” For more information call Jeff Bouck at 519-865-3030 or visit lpbeachclub.com.
