Your cosy getaway to the massive inland prairie ocean! Very private and heavily treed lot; lots of shade and sunshine. Birds singing, gentle breeze through the trees, sometimes the sound of waves crashing. The "cabbage" (cabin + cottage = cabbage) is perfect for a family, a girls' getaway, a romantic retreat. The decor is rustic farmhouse meets beach house. This is our own family getaway so the place has everything you need for a fun vacation!

The space
We ask guests to bring their own bed linens and beach towels to help us keep the cleaning costs low. We supply pillows and duvets/comforters. We keep extra kitchen and bathroom supplies in case you forget something :)

Guest access
Guests have full access to the whole 1/3 acre property. We just ask that you keep our little guests away from the brush pile so that they don’t hurt themselves on pointy sticks!

Location

Bélair, Manitoba, Canada

Lester Beach is a very friendly beach community. Many families have been here for generations. The community is part of the larger "Eastern Beaches" area and there are many amenities in the nearby communities (10-15 mins accessible by car).

FUN THINGS TO DO AT LESTER BEACH:

1) The Beach: a 3 mins walk to the beach entrance. There are a lot stairs to get down to the sand. An accessible entrance (with parking) can be found at Dinner Creek.

2) Dinner Creek: you can also walk/drive further south along Lester and enter at Dinner Creek. This is a very popular end of the beach with families. Accessible, and has a large bike rack. There are portable washrooms located at the entrance.

3) Take a walk around our “Cabbage Paths”…we’ve made some little paths around the property. Perfect for little hikers, you might run into a flamingo or two on your journey… ☺

4) Visit “Jeannie Park” on Birch Ave…it’s a cottage lot that has been transformed into a lovely little garden with paths, pet memorials, lovely greenery. Very meditative and lovely place to bring your coffee ☺

5) Sunset on the beach…a lot of people come out for the sunset and a night swim. Dogs are welcomed too, though mostly on leash. The morning is a better time for off-leash romps with your pups.

6) Walks/hikes/bike rides: we are right next door to Grand Beach provincial park. There are great trails all throughout the park. We have a laminated map on the coffee table for you to peruse.

7) Sports Field: playground, beach volleyball, outdoor exercise equipment, softball diamond, basketball hoop, covered dining structure, shaded bench, and horseshoe throwing pits! A nice walk from the cabin, or drive north on Lester Boulevard, turn right on First Ave, drive to top of the hill to Pioneer and turn right.

Adventurer, dog-lover, mom of teens, living life 2.0 with a wonderful new man! Love deep conversations, riding my bike through forested trails, meeting people who personify joy! Moved to the prairies 12 years ago, originally hail from the west coast. Love my little cabbage in the woods as it is as close to pure bliss as I can get. The birds and their songs fill up my heart.
