Cottage Profile

This adorable 1500 sq. ft. “A-Frame” cottage has 3 bedrooms plus a Bunkie, and sits on 5 acres of land. Located just 1km from the shores of Whiskey Harbour on Lake Huron, this private cottage is set in a quiet and serene location, surrounding you with nature and letting you escape the city. During the day, enjoy swimming at “The Rocks” of Whiskey Harbour, and in the evening watch the magnificent sunset. At night you can admire the stars and Milky Way, since this cottage sits on the Northern Bruce Peninsula’s “Dark Skies” preserve (visit http://www.brucepeninsula.org/dark-skies for more information).

The 5 acres includes a large green area for children to play soccer, badminton, or take advantage of the horseshoe pits provided. A trail at the back of the green space, takes you into the forest to explore more of what nature offers; mushrooms, mosses, many bird species, and deer. Next to the Bunkie is a wood shed with a covered picnic area including a propane and charcoal BBQ, allowing you to cook up an easy summer feast.

Inside the cottage, the main living area has 2 futons and 3 reclining arm chairs, surrounding the wood burning fireplace.  Tin ceilings provide a unique look for this area, and an overhead fan helps keep the air cool and circulating. A TV is available, along with DVD and Blu-Ray player, PS4, Xbox 360, NES and SNES Classic (for the gamers in the family). Also, Chromecast is available so you can cast videos such as Netflix to the TV. A radio, Sirius XM and a record player allow you to listen to your favorite tunes. Board games, chess, Sci-fi novels and nature books are available to entertain you on a rainy day.  For clear nights, the telescope can be used to get a closer look at the stars (following telescope instructions), although a short trip to Lion’s Head for their “Bayside Astronomy” program is recommended for the star struck (offered free to the public on Friday and Saturday nights from Canada Day to Labour day - visit Bayside Astronomy’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=bayside%20astronomy ).

On the main level, an efficient kitchen has many of the amenities of home including a fridge, stove/double oven, toaster, microwave, and dishwasher. A large dining table in the kitchen seats 6, and the sunroom off the kitchen can handle overflow with additional seating for 8.

The main level of the cottage has a full bathroom with a tub/shower combination.  The second level has two bedrooms, one with a Queen bed and a Single, and the second bedroom has a Bunkbed (double on bottom and single on top).  The third bedroom is in the loft, with a double bed and a single bed. 

The Bunkie boasts a beautiful private oasis for those that want to escape from the cottage. A Queen bed with mini-TV with VHS player and a selection of old-school tapes, gives a little technological nostalgia and is a great place for the kids watch movies. 

Out on the lawn is a fire pit to have a family campfire. The property is well screened by trees, giving you privacy while you enjoy the outdoor space.

The cottage is located less than a 10 min walk to “The Rocks” “ a public access point onto the shores of Lake Huron.  The shoreline is mostly flat rock, with gradual entry and great swimming opportunities. This is a favorite swimming location among kids and teens for the thrills of jumping off the rocks into deeper waters. This location also offers spectacular sunsets, so bring a lawn chair and relax at the rocks. The cottage’s central location on the Bruce Peninsula makes it an ideal ‘base camp’ for many attractions on the Bruce.  Sauble Beach is approx. a 30 min drive, while the Bruce Peninsula National Park featuring Cyprus Lake and “The Grotto” is also approx. a 30 min drive away.  Katemma’s Diner is a 10 min walk away, for those that would like a break from cooking (their breakfasts and Sunday night dinners are not to be missed!), and the towns of Lion’s Head, Wiarton, and Tobermory are also short drives, making it easy to go shopping or have a fun day-long excursion.

This is a GREAT family cottage that places you smack in the middle of all the action on the Bruce Peninsula!
