two level residence. The lower level is a walk-out level with plenty
of large bright windows and is a completely self-contained living
There is something for everyone to do whether it is lazy days in the sun while taking occasional dips in the bay or heading out to enjoy the many local events and attractions. The Midland/ Penetanguishene area is a favourite holiday destination.

area if you want sun. The patio is a great spot for taking advantage
of the bay view, watching passing boats, catching up with your family
members, and relaxing with a good book and/or your favourite holiday
There is a propane BBQ for grilling up some BBQ feasts, and a patio table. After you have grilled your favourite vacation meal you can sit down to enjoy a family outdoor dinner while overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay.
The large grassed yard leads down to the shore and is a great place
for kids to play. Be sure to bring your outdoor yard games. It’s
just a short stroll to the lovely private sand beach.
The large beach is a great spot any time of day. You can catch some
rays or relax in the shade with a good book and take in the great
panoramic view of the aqua blue bay water. The covered dining shelter
with concrete patio at the shore provides shade and the perfect
spot for enjoying waterfront meals.
The shoreline is sandy and the water depth increases gradually for swimming or just splashing around. The lake bottom is a sand/gravel mix with some rocks (water shoes are recommended). This is also a great spot to launch your canoe or kayak if you have one.
If not there is a kayak and paddle boat available for your use at the cottage. On the beach there is a fire pit available for evening campfires, taking in the starry night sky, roasting marshmallows, and stories at the end of the day.
