balm beach

My husband and I are looking at cottages in the midland area. There is one in balm beach that looks interesting but I have never heard of this beach. Vwe have a 3 mo old and 2.5 yr old. Is this a good beach for families or a beach for teens and 20 somethings? We tend to go to bed early these days and would like to be in a quieter area.

Not a lot of options as we are looking at next Thursday to Sunday. Most cottages are booked up. There was one other cottage available in the kincardine area.

My recollection of Balm Beach is that it was a very family friendly beach, without the brouhah of Wasaga. If you google Balm Beach, some great photos come up ... all of which seem to bear that recollection out. However as a long time cottager in the Muskoka region, I found the "streets" of cottages a bit strange ... not that there's anything wrong with that - there are public access points to the beach - it just seemed different to me. You might want to confirm if the cottage is beachfront or a back lot property ... if that's going to be deal breaker for you.

The beach at Kincardine is lovely ... and considerably longer than that of Balm.
