About Us

Brentwood on the Beach is a 10,000 square ft house that has been operational as a 9 room luxury bed and breakfast for 25 years. We are the only upscale accommodation directly on the 375 km Lake Huron shoreline. We are located in St. Joseph on a private, sandy beach between Grand Bend and Bayfield.

 

Brentwood was built in 1976 by Jeffrey Bros. Construction of St. Joseph. Although the original footprint of the house remains the same, Jeffrey Bros. converted the original house from five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and three half bathrooms to nine guest bedrooms with nine en suite bathrooms, each individually decorated with breathtaking views of the gardens and the lake. The summer kitchen became the indoor guest kitchen.

Each year, over the past 22 years, previous owners Joan & Peter re-invested back into the property. They added private en suite bathrooms and fireplaces to all of the guest rooms and added balconies and patios to some of the guest rooms for added enjoyment of the outdoors and Lake Huron’s world-renowned sunsets. Walkways were added that lead past the gardens and the waterfall. There are ongoing renovations and upgrades yearly to create an experience that guests call “heaven on earth”. The indoor pool at Brentwood was converted to a salt water pool and wall-to-wall windows were added along with a stamped, concrete heated floor surrounding the pool. The whirlpool was updated and the sauna upgraded to an infra-red.

On Oct 10th, 2014, Joan and Peter decided to retire. Steven Jiang’s family took over the property and kept Brentwood’s business to contribute to Canada.

Steven and Wei are Chinese. They were born in Shanghai where they became very successful business people. As their daughter Cindy grew up, they recognized that they needed to change the environment for Cindy in order for her to live independently. Therefore, they came to Canada in 2011.  For the first two years they lived in White Rock, B.C. where Cindy attended Southridge private school. In 2013, Cindy decided to study business at Western University and the family relocated to London, ON.

Steven and Wei visited Brentwood occasionally in 2014. They loved the beautiful spot and decided to continue Brentwood’s B&B business. All the motivations for this decision came from deep within their hearts.

This Chinese family is ready to welcome guests from all over the world with their sincerity and passion. Come and enjoy all that Brentwood on the Beach accommodations has to offer on Lake Huron in Southwestern Ontario.
