Cedar Rock Cottage!
This airy three bedroom cottage is located in the shores of Leith
approximately 10 km north of Owen Sound.
The cottage is a spacious open concept with vaulted wood paneled
ceilings. The grounds, decks and shore are all available for your
The living room/dining room has double walkout sliding glass doors
onto the wrap-around deck looking through the cedars to Owen Sound
Bay. Step out, settle into a deck chair and relax with a book and
a cool drink. From here you can take in some of the most breathtaking
sunsets ever seen.
Walk down to the lake for a cooling dip on a warm, dog day afternoon.
Entry into the protected beach is ankle deep. The shoreline is a
mixture of sand and cobble having gradual entry into the water with
good swimming. The water is sparkling clear and cool but bring some
water-shoes for greater comfort.
Toss in a line off the stone groyne if you're a fishing afficionado
- the rainbow trout are some of Georgian Bay's finest!
The living room is furnished with a couch, chair, and a radio. There
is also a woodstove to take the chill off on those cool summer and
fall nights. A 37 inch LCD TV is provided.
Adjacent to the living area is a fully equipped kitchen. You will
find a fridge, stove, microwave and oven. There is lots of counter
space to prepare some great meals. A skylight provides warm rays
of sunshine on those bright days.
The dining table is just off of the kitchen. It seats six comfortably
with a wonderful view out to the bay.
The living room has two skylights allowing natural sunlight to fill
the room. Pick your sunbeam.
Bedroom 1 has a queen size bed with south and west facing windows
to the lake. Closet space is ample. Dressers and a mirror are also
Bedroom 2 has 2 twin finely crafted estate Victorian-style poster
Bedroom 3 has a queen bed with an attractive patchwork quilt. A
sitting table is situated by the window.
The bathroom is attractively decorated and very modern. You will
find a toilet, sink and tub-surround (with shower and bathtub).
Laundry facilities are also provided in an alcove
of the bathroom.
Magnificent luscious grounds surround the cottage. There are gardens
on the lee side of the cottage. There is a propane BBQ located adjacent
the deck. Take your cooked dinner inside to the dinner table or
take in a great meal on the deck while overlooking beautiful Georgian
On the beach and in the shelter of the north groyne, you will find
a firepit on Georgian Bay. The evening skys are open and provide
a breathtaking view of the stars.
After supper consider a stroll along the quiet cottage road and
over the fence-style. Carry on down to Ainsley Wood Conservation
Area and hunt tadpoles or crayfish in the river. This is a perfect
place to delight the children or rediscover an old pastime with
them or alone.
The cottage is located within a 10-minute drive of the City of Owen
Sound with its shops, fine dining, art gallery (Tom Thomson Art
Gallery), live theater, movie theaters and museums (Grey Roots and
Marine and Rail).
There is also great bicycling in the area. Most of the rural roads
are paved and many follow the Georgian Bay shoreline.
Regrettably, neither dogs nor smoking is permitted within the cottage.

We, my husband, our 13 year old son and me, had a wonderful stay at Cedar Rock Cottage. The owners were very friendly and generous, the cottage clean, nicely arranged and in such a special place of Owen Sound. The kitchen is well equiped!
Not only the cottage, but also the garden and private beach are arranged with great taste. We experienced unbelievable sun downs and could barbecue at the lakeshore with sausages and mashmallows! Highly recommended for anyone who likes nature!

I was at Cedar Rock with my parents and my family (son is almost 3). This was a very beautiful cottage, well kept and clean.
The couches and chairs were comfortable, the kitchen was a nice size and the bathtub was wonderfully deep! The washer and dryer were great to have too. It was nice to have satellite TV for rainy days. The middle bedroom's bed left me with a sore back, but my parents said theirs was comfortable.
The bonfire area was very nice and the property was well maintained. The views (especially at sunset) were breathtaking!
The bedrooms were pretty hot and stuffy overnight with no breeze; ceiling fans in the bedrooms would have been nice.
You could walk less than 10 minutes to get to a small conservation area, but it was too rocky to go swimming and too shallow for fishing.
It was a short jaunt into town, with wonderful Harrison Park close by (we went there 3 times for our son), as well as a few waterfalls and many restaurants and stores. Coffin Ridge Winery was only a 20 min drive away as well.
The fishing was a disappointment. The fish were very scarce (you could see way down into the crystal clear water) and they were nowhere near the cottage - you needed to go to one of the rafts way out in the water to catch anything.
Also, the swimming was not great. The water was warmer than I expected, but only came to about thigh deep by the end of the little inlet of the cottage and full of really big (and slippery!) rocks. Water shoes are a must have or you'd hurt yourself pretty badly. To get chest deep water you'd need to go out pretty far.
To keep our little one busy we caught crayfish and built some sandcastles (there's only a little strip of sand), but he got bored fairly quickly since the water was cool.
If this cottage had better fishing and swimming, it would be amazing, but it was a nice trip overall.

This was our first time renting a cottage. It was a great experience. The cottage is in a beautiul location. Swimming is great once you get past the rock bottom, bring your water shoes. The cottage itself, is immaculate and offers anything and everything you need or want on your holiday. It is very private and peaceful. There are unique local attractions and you are never far from a trail or conservation area. The neighbours are very friendly and so are the dogs! The sunsets are breathtaking.

Leith Cottage was just the right fit for our family of six adults: quiet location, comfortable surroundings, and gorgeous sunsets.

Cottage was clean, filled with beautiful antiques and decor. Comfortable deck overlooking the water and sheltered from offshore breezes. On nice evenings sat out and watched the sunsets. Best event was the evening bonfire by the water and looking at the stars. Quiet neighbourhood. Bike riding in the area was great-good area trails!
Tom Thompson museum was great too. Fishing was a disappointment however, -didn't catch the big one(not much action in August). Cottage was very much enjoyed by my elderly parents and water was clean, clear and warm! Highly recommended.
