Sandy’s Shore is a private beachfront property, with crystal clear water. The sandy beachfront makes for easy water entry, as well as sand castle fun for children, or those young at heart! Bask in the sun on the floating raft or on the dock. Start your day in the breakfast nook, relaxing over your morning coffee. The screened in porch is perfect for those rainy days, buggy afternoons or evenings and is great for catching up with friends, or unwinding from a busy day. The games room with air hockey table allows for endless fun as well as the expansive movie collection for when you feel like staying indoors. Miners Bay is close to all amenities – Minden, Coboconk and Haliburton are a short drive away. For an unusual movie experience, visit Highland Cinemas in Kinmount, a famous movie theatre and museum.
