Lakeside Community Living
We chose the site for The Bluffs at Huron very carefully. The eastern shore of Lake Huron, known to many as Ontario’s West Coast, was our starting point. It quickly became obvious that the best location was close to Goderich, “Canada’s prettiest town”.
In addition to the shopping, healthcare and entertainment amenities of Goderich, you will find these area attractions all close by The Bluffs:
Goderich Sunset Golf Club
The Sunset Golf Club is located right next to The Bluffs! This 18-hole championship course has been wowing area residents and visitors alike for more than 30 years. Featuring strategically placed sand traps and narrow, tree-lined fairways, it is a course designed to test players of all skill levels. Water hazards come into play on 13 holes, adding to the challenge.

A Boater’s Paradise

For those who like to get out on the water themselves, you will be glad to know that the Maitland Valley Marina is just five minutes’ drive away. Situated in the protected waters of the Maitland River at Goderich, the Marina can accommodate vessels up to 100 feet in length, at a depth of 9 feet.

The Recreation Centre
The Bluffs experience wouldn’t be complete without a first class recreation centre.
Your new home is just the start.
The Bluffs experience wouldn’t be complete without a first class recreation centre. Set back from the edge of the bluffs and surrounded by well-tended lawns, the 8,000-square foot Recreation Centre, Fitness Centre and Assembly Hall complex is ready to fulfil your every need.
The Recreation Centre boasts a lounge, a meeting room, a bar and a library. It is complemented by a full-service Fitness Centre complete with the latest fitness equipment and a dedicated workout space, as well as an indoor pool and accessible men’s and women’s showers and change rooms.
Imagine participating in an Aquatic class indoors, then enjoying the sunshine on the deck afterwards!
Lake Huron. Now that’s living!
On the other side of the Rec Centre is the Assembly Hall, the perfect spot for birthday and Christmas parties, dinners and celebrations of all kinds. Like the Fitness Centre and the ground of the Recreation Centre, the Assembly Hall is completely accessible. It can seat 300 people and is provisioned with a full kitchen, giving you the ability to cook or cater parties of almost any size.
Running the length of the Rec Centre complex is a large deck with access to the lounge, bar and exercise areas. Enjoy a post-workout glass of wine out of doors as you contemplate the sun about to quench its rest for the day in the vast expanse of Lake Huron. Now that’s living.
Strolling across the lawn towards the bluffs, you will find a paved path that slopes down to the pebble-strewn beach fronting the lake. Further along, a network of trails weaves its way along the top of the bluff among fruit trees and below the natural forest canopy.
