Note: Many of the pictures on this webpage have been taking using a 16 mm wide angle lens. We use this lens to show as much detail as possible in each of the rooms of the cottage. This makes the rooms seem larger than they really are.

The internet service provided at this cottage is for e-mail communications and casual browsing only. Please do not download movies or stream videos, music or games. Excess data usage will result in an additional charge.

Please Note: The water levels in Ontario have been fluctuating in recent years. Therefore, some of the photographs of shorelines/beaches on this website may not fully reflect current waterfront conditions.

Cottage Profile

Nestled between the escarpment and the cobble beach of Dyer's Bay, this 1200 sq ft 'gingerbread' cottage is built in the old-Ontario farmhouse style. Beautifully decorated, this 2-bedroom home is the perfect setting for your holiday, set against the pristine waters of Georgian Bay.

Inside the cottage you will find a bright, inviting kitchen, dining area, and living room with hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, gas stove/oven, ample cupboard space and a bright window over the sink. The breakfast bar with four bar-style chairs is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee.

Just adjacent to this is the dining area and living room, which are afforded great views by the large windows and windowed French doors that look direct out into Dyer's Bay. Enjoy a sit-down meal at the dining table, with enough seats for all in your party and watch the waves. Or take a seat on the couch or two comfy chairs to take in the view, or watch a show or movie on the TV - with built-in DVD player. The gas fireplace in this space will warm you on a cool summer evening while an area rug adds charm.

There are two bedrooms at this cottage, each with an ensuite bathroom. The master bedroom offers a queen bed and a four-piece ensuite bathroom complete with a massage tub. Early sunrises provide a gorgeous view from the master bedroom which also has French doors entering onto the large waterfront deck.

The second bedroom has a double bed as well as a single, and its own two-piece ensuite bathroom.

A washer and dryer provide you with full laundry facilities, for your convenience.

Outside on the deck you can enjoy the compelling 180 degree waterview from Cabot Head to Cape Chin. Predominant southwest winds blow offshore most of the summer months providing you with a comforting breeze. Relax on a lounger with a good book and catch some sun or take a nap. There is also a propane BBQ so you can cook up a tasty feast.

The shoreline consists of a pebble beach with excellent swimming in some of the cleanest water in Ontario. Water shoes are recommended.

If you are looking for a shady spot, there is a covered roadside porch at the front of the cottage with a sitting area.

While you're here on holiday, you can explore all that this area has to offer. For those who like to hike, the Bruce Trail is located 0.5 km away and provides spectacular opportunities for hiking and exploration. For cyclists the area also has great road riding along paved roads or you can follow the spectacular shoreline road (which is gravel) to Cabot Head Lighthouse. This is a 10 km ride along a road that is squeezed in between the 150 foot cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment and the waters of Georgian Bay. For 80% of the road there is no development on either side.

There is restaurant within walking distance at the Apple Wood Inn if you'd like to eat out. The communities of Tobermory and Lion's Head are only a 30 minute drive from the cottage for sightseeing opportunities, shopping and more.
