Compact, three bedroom, 1000 square foot cottage located along
the shores of Dorcas Bay on Lake Huron. Located a short drive from
the sands of Singing Sands Beach, and just a 20 km drive into Tobermory,
Tuckernuck is both convenient and quiet.
The main living area of the cottage is an open concept, finished
in cedar with a ledgerock gas fireplace as the focal point of the
room. Large windows allow natural light to filter the room. A sofa,
loveseat and armchair provide comfortable seating for all six in
the party, and a television with DVD player is available in case
of rainy weather. Sliding glass doors lead from the main living
area out to the lakeside deck.
The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities to
make your stay a comfortable one. A fridge, stove, microwave and
dishwasher are all available for your use, and a table with seating
for all six is located here.
There are three bedrooms at the cottage. The first and second bedrooms
both have a double bed and the third bedroom has a set of single
bunkbeds. For some additional sleeping space, the sofa in the living
area folds out in a double bed. The bathroom is a three-piece with shower.
The cottage is set back from the road for some additional privacy,
and a trail leads from the cottage down to the shore.
Muskoka chairs line the deck off the main living area and trees
that screen the deck provide a private space to relax and enjoy
a cup of morning coffee. A patio table and propane BBQ are available
for your family to enjoy an outdoor meal.
An outdoor fire pit is available for your family to enjoy an evening
campfire together. From the shoreline of the cottage, you can relax
and enjoy a beautiful sunset over Lake Huron.
The cottage is centrally located to many points of interest. It
is a twenty minute drive to Tobermory, and the Bruce Peninsula National
Park and a 10 minute drive to a nice sand beach at Singing Sands,
which is a part of Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Fantastic Waterfront Cottage!!
Reviewed by David C on 09/16/2015
Tuckernuck is a fantastic waterfront cottage located on beautiful Dorcas Bay, near Tobermory. The cottage was lovely, very well equipped and the waterfront was wonderful. We would highly recommend this cottage and hated to leave!

Cottage is very private, spotless and very well appointed.
Lovely to sit on the large deck and watch the birds flutter while the waves roll in th distance. Very close to Tobemory for supplies and a half decent "Northern Golf Course".
We have rented two other cottages in the Tobemory area and this is by far the best one yet! We hope to return next year.
Great location, lovely cottage
Reviewed by A FlipKey verified reviewer on 07/04/2013
Our family had a brilliant stay at Tuckernuck cottage. The cottage itself is very nice and it is exceptionally well equipped with all that we needed. The owners were happy to accommodate our request to supply bed linens, making our lives much easier. The location is superb - the lake was on the doorstep and the kids could play on the rocks and try and catch crayfish. In the evening it was great to relax with a fire in the fire pit while watching the sunset.
The lovely beach at Singing Sands was only 10 minutes drive away, and other locations in the National Park, such as Halfway Log Dump, Indian Head Cove and the Grotto were all only a short drive. We stayed for two weeks and certainly never felt that we were short of things to do in the area.
We would be more than happy to return to Tuckernuck cottage if we got the chance. You can't really ask for more than a lovely place to stay, in a great location, in a beautiful area.
Wonderful cottage close to Tobermory
Reviewed by A FlipKey verified reviewer on 10/21/2011
This cottage is in a great location close to Tobermory and the Bruce Peninsula National Park. It has a fabulous deck and property that's very private surrounded in trees. The cottage itself has a great open space for the family room/kitchen and very comfortable.
The only negative is the rocky shoreline and rocks in the lake - it is quite a walk out to get to deep water - watershoes advised.
We would stay here again!

The service we received from rentcottage.com was very good, factual and accommodating.
The rental was very nice and for the most part well equipped (no microwave).
It was close to amenities and was just as indicated in the information. Gorgeous sunsets! Beaches were close and convenient as were the walking trails. It was quite and private. The living space was ideal.
If there was a microwave and satelite TV for rainy days and evenings, it would have made it perfect.
We enjoyed ourselfs and our dog really had a great time.
Everything you need

This cottage is just as described. The four of us were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful and nicely decorated cottage. I am very picky as to where I stay, and I'm glad to have spent the extra cash on the Tuckernuck. My two kids loved it. The water was way to cold for swimming (as expected) and the days we did venture out to the shore, we were only able to get in knee deep; beware the very slippery boulders. The view is amazing however and there is a lot of exploring to do. Just a short drive down the road, you will find the amazing Singing Sands beach and a short distance further, will bring you to the heart of Tobermory. This cottage is truly amazing, convenient and worth every cent. The owners do a excellent job keeping it up. Don't expect any fishing or canoeing off the cottage though. I brought a raft, thinking we could use it - impossible. The current at the time was too strong. This probably explains why there aren't any canoes or kayaks included with the cottage package. The cottage did smell a little like dog, which bothered me. A little incense covered that up quickly though. We would definitely stay again.
