Property Profile

We love families with children and want to share our family vacation home with other families. This is not a cottage for all-night parties or loud music or a bunch of buddies getting away. Smoke-free and pet-free property. Renters must do a thorough cleaning prior to leaving. We cater to families with children!
Our waterfront cottage is set back from Lake Huron, amongst cedar trees, and provides lots of privacy from the road and neighbours. Be prepared to see paddlers or a family of geese pass by in the water.
The main cottage is a clean one-story bungalow, with all-pine interior. Most rooms have ceiling fans, and as the cottage is surrounded by rock and trees, it is usually a comfortable temperature inside. Each room has windows that open. You enter a small foyer where outerwear can be stored, and then you head into the kitchen with a microwave, 24" oven/stove top and a full fridge with a small freezer on top, plus cupboards full of kitchenware including crock pot, coffee maker, toaster, George Foreman grill, casserole dishes, salad spinner, cutting boards, dishes, glassware, cutlery etc. There are also extra containers for you to take your leftover food in, for those hikes on the Bruce Trail. Paper towels, standard condiments and plastic wrap are supplied, as well as tea towels and dish soap. The water is tested monthly and is safe to drink. However, we prefer to bring water for drinking, and you may wish to do so also. There is a BBQ outside - tin foil provided. Remember though - clean the BBQ after each use, or a bear may find your crumbs.
From the kitchen, you see into the open concept dining area/living area. There is a large pine table for everyone to gather at, whether for a board game, or for a meal, or just good conversation. It's an easy move to the sofa, two matching chairs, or two rocking chairs. Satellite TV is available.
The full bathroom features a tub with shower, plus toilet and sink in a vanity. Shampoo, liquid soap and toilet tissue provided.
Bedroom #1 has a closet and built-in drawers and has an Ikea white iron queen-sized bed that is already made up with linens for you. The new mattress is quality foam.
Bedroom #2 also has a closet and built-in drawers, and has two bunkbeds. The first features a single-over-single bed, and the second features a single-over-double bed. Again, these mattresses are quality foam from Foamite and Ikea, and are made up and ready for you to sleep in.
The front sun room is our favourite - it is a great place to sit and read or just watch the water from the windows covering two walls.
You can also head out onto the front patio from the sun room. Outdoor patio furniture is available, including folding chairs that you can lie in, or sit in, or move to around the fire pit. We do supply your first night of firewood, and then there are numerous places in the area to purchase more.
For older children, the attached bunkie can be accessed as well (included in cost, but must be requested prior). Like the main cottage building, it is decorated entirely with pine. There is a closet and two extra-long twin beds with Foamite mattresses. Sheets and pillows adorn the bunkie beds. A small bathroom can be found there as well - sink and toilet only.
If you are looking for even more privacy, there is an enclosed gazebo with a couch, lamps, and two hammocks.
The property is set back from the water about 150 feet, but it is a quick walk to the water's edge, where it is shallow enough to let young children play, and deep enough for adults to swim. The water is clear, and water shoes are provided - the bottom varies from flat rock to boulders. Often, you can see baby geese by, or paddlers, No kayaks or canoes are available on site, but can be rented locally and put in here. It is about a ten minute paddle to go directly across the bay, or you can spend endless time just paddling around in the bay. More experienced paddlers can head north or south along the shoreline of Lake Huron. The waters can be unpredictable though!
From the road, you see lots of cedars and only a very quick glimpse of the cottage. After you go back the driveway, the property opens up to the buildings and to small white stone landscaping over most of the property. There are plenty of trees separating you from the neighbours. Children may enjoy playing Robin Hood amongst the trees and into the tree fort.
The property is a 10-minute drive from Tobermory, where you will find a grocery store, churches, library, internet access, ChiCheeman ferry to Manitoulin Island, diving, tennis court, golf course, laundromat, airport, Fathom Five National Park, Parks Canada visitor centre, and eateries and shops.
It is also a short drive to Singing Sands beach and walkway, Bruce Trail, Cabot Head Lighthouse, Dunks Bay sand beach, Bruce Peninsula National Park, Flowerpot Island (requires boat ride). You will find an abundance of outdoor hiking and exploring opportunities.
Wildlife enjoys the serenity, and you will be sure to see plenty of birds, snakes, squirrels and chipmunks. Although you can feed them peanuts at the fire pit, you must be conscientious of cleaning up food - inside and outside - there have been bears nearby!
If you are looking for R&R, in a clean, quiet setting, unplugged, then this may be the place for you. It is a country setting, so if the hydro was to go off, you have no water (except from the lake). There is no telephone on site - cell phones usually work. Public telephones are located in Tobermory.
If your family is looking for a quiet, safe vacation, consider our cottage. Remember that it is self-cleaning when you leave - extensive check list can be sent to you prior.  Remember,  you don't have to deal with bedding (a real time and space saver)! We do require a written agreement prior to renting as well. This ensures that everyone has an enjoyable stay. There is a $500 damage/security/cleaning deposit required as well.  Rates are $150/night for a minimum of three nights.  Maximum six people including four adults (18+).  All payments must clear three weeks prior to arrival.
