Fall adventures along the Sauble River

Stay at The June in Sauble Beach this fall and experience hikes along the Bruce Peninsula, colourful canoe rides up Sauble River, peaceful morning beach walks and daytrips exploring the neighbouring communities and their cafés, shops, breweries and parks. There's no time like fall to esscape city life — we're all about capturing the magic of the leaves changing colours, embracing the slower paced vibes and getting cozy with a smooth glass of red after a day of exploring.

See our list for the top places to sip, shop, refuel and explore in Bruce County and nearby Grey County this fall.

Our homebase! We love fall days in Sauble Beach, where the community is tight knit and the beach is quiet and calming. For a cozy fall experience, pre-order a bottle of red on arrival and enjoy it in room or on your patio with a blanket!
