A beautiful waterfront cottage with spectacular Georgian Bay views.
Just 1 1/2 hours from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), this updated
all-season vacation home offers panoramic views of Georgian Bay
and the serenity of cottage life yet only minutes away from area
shopping, dining, entertainment and attractions. The area is a favourite
year round holiday destination.
The well maintained and welcoming waterfront cottage is located on Georgian Bay at Victoria Harbour just a short drive from downtown Midland, Penetanguishene and Waubashene.

It is the perfect spot for a comfortable and relaxing family vacation. 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 cottage is set back about 200 feet from the road providing a
large grassed front yard. There are two small buildings in the front
yard which are used by the owner for storage. Inside, the one storey,
air conditioned cottage is fully equipped and attractively furnished
with an upscale decor. Upon entering the cottage you will be impressed
by the spacious clean, bright modern kitchen with granite countertops
and large center island where you can prepare and enjoy simple fare
to gourmet. From the kitchen you can take in views of the trees
and grass on one side of the cottage and the aqua blue waters of
Georgian Bay on the other side. The kitchen is well equipped with
a fridge/freezer, plus a kitchen island mini-frigde, natural gas

and an ottoman for you to enjoy a family movie night, watch the
game or just simply relax. A patio door from the living room leads
to the rear outdoor deck. The rear deck 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 beverage. It is also perfect for the early birds in your
group to enjoy a quiet morning coffee while watching the sunrise.
There is a natural gas BBQ for grilling up some feasts, and a patio
table with 6 chairs. After cooking your favourite vacation meal
you can sit down to enjoy a family outdoor dinner while overlooking
beautiful Georgian Bay.

For your convenience there is also a washer and dryer to take care of any laundry needs during your stay at the cottage. The master bedroom has a queen bed, window with water view and a 42” TV. There is a double bed in the second bedroom and bunk beds in the third bedroom. The sitting room off the living room has a futon sofa, 32” TV and a window overlooking the bay. The futon sofa in this room adapts easily to a futon bed and the room can be used as a fourth bedroom if needed.
There is large grassed rear yard leading to the shore. The rear
yard is a great place for kids to play. Be sure to bring your outdoor
yard games. It’s just a short stroll to the water and 100
foot dock where you can catch some rays or relax with a good book
and take in the great panoramic view of the aqua blue bay water.
The water depth increases gradually for swimming or just splashing
around. The water depth at the end of the dock is 4-5 feet. The
shore is a great spot to launch your canoe or kayak if you have
one. If not there is a kayak and paddle available for your use at
the cottage. On the grassed rear yard 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.
