Explore, discover and experience any of the four seasons at this lovely cottage on 120 feet of sandy shores of beautiful Penetanguishene Bay!
This is an opulent 2500 sq ft, 3 bedroom cottage, on a 1 acre lot which comes with plenty of green space and is located just 1.5 hours from the bustle of Toronto city life.
In the summer, rest and relaxation are found on the dock and huge waterfront area with stone and deck patios. The beautiful sandy beach can be enjoyed by all ages whether, swimming, suntanning, building sand castles or you can while away the day watching the boat traffic. If you bring your own boat, use it as your jumping off point into the magnificent 30000 Islands of Georgian Bay.
During the winter months, the area provides excellent ice fishing opportunities, snowmobile trails, downhill skiing (Mt. St. Louis Moonstone or Horseshoe Valley) or cross country skiing and snowshoeing (Awenda National Park and Wye Marsh).
Inside, you have an elegant hardwood floored dining room overlooking the sandy shoreline. There are 2 comfortable sitting areas on the first and second floors, overlooking the beautiful Penetanguishene Harbour.
Your kitchen is equally stunning with hardwood floors, stainless steel fridge and efficient counterspace with countertop range. You step out onto a brand new wooden deck with uninterrupted view of the water through glass railings. Dine outside under the umbrella on those gorgeous summer days or slip inside if it cools down.
The cottage also has two bathrooms, a 5 piece upstairs and downstairs 3 piece with a shower and sink. Both with luxurious slate, marble & glass enclosed shower stall.. The upstairs bathroom also has a relaxing bubble jet soaker tub.
Downstairs, you will find a large screen television, a stone-clad gas fireplace surrounded by a cherrywood wet bar and wine cooler.
Outside, you can convalesce around the grounds, which include soothing
zen gardens, smooth river stone landscaped gardens and beautifully
kept gardens on the sloping lawn.
Full modern laundry facilities are provided to keep you where you belong - at your vacation spot, not running into town to do laundry.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms, all on the main upper floor. The master bedroom has a queen bed overlooking the Bay with luxurious ensuite bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and bedroom 3 has 2 twin beds. There is an additional double pull-out sofa in the basement.
All this is found only 5 minutes from town in what seems a world away from the everyday. If you can tear yourself away, wander into Penetang or Midland to the historic Martyr's Shrine, St. Marie Among the Hurons, Discovery Harbour or the the Georgian Bay Islands National Park. You are also 10 minutes from the gates of beautiful, natural Awenda Provincial Park.

All the comforts of home on picturesque Georgian Bay
Reviewed by DearieDearieMe on 08/31/2016
This was the second time we have rented this home. The rentals have always gone very smoothly with good communication and easy transactions. The property is well maintained and we noted some improvements between the rentals, where the owners had repaired or upgraded various items and continue to improve the property.
You couldn't ask for a more picturesque setting, with fantastic views of the bay, which, with the addition of sand makes it idea for swimming. The only drawback is that renters are required to leave the rental cleaned (departing by 10am) and we would have happily paid for a cleaning service rather than spend our last morning cleaning for 3 hours. Regardless, we knew this before renting so it's not really a complaint, just more of one to note. Additionally renters are required to bring their own sheets and towels, but are told in advance. In retrospect we should have brought more towels as there's so much fun to be had on the water that we could have used a couple towels per person.
The kitchen was well equipped but unfortunately two knobs of the stove top were broken making two elements unuseable. The owners are aware and note it will be repaired during the winter of 2016.
There's plenty to do in the area and we had no trouble entertaining two children and 4 adults during our stay. Maitre D (a restaurant in Penatanguishine) is a real gem and when we weren't out on the lake in a boat, kayak or swimming, we popped to local sights like Saint Marie Among the Hurons, picking blueberries, the movies (in Midland) or the Make a Mess art studio (in Penatang) to create some art on a rainy day.

We had a relaxing time in the cottage. Place is amazing inside and out. Will definitely rent again. Our kids had a lot of fun playing ping ping and football.
Beautiful retreat, house full of sun during the winter!

Beautiful, private and comfortable home.
We cleaned ups the snow from the lake, and made our private scating arena.
you can stay there all weekend and not even move from the premises, all fun is there!

Great place nice decor nice view the only downfall is that doesn't have air conditioning and In the hot days the heat is quite unbearable. Other than that a great place to go. Nice property !
spacious house, lovely views of the lake

This house is really spacious and had all mod cons including several fans which we did need at times. When the barbecue didn't work, the owner came the same day with a new one. The agency were very accessible and friendly. We had our own beach which was quite safe and good for our little ones to paddle. The geese came up on to the lawn which was fun for the kids. location is a bit far out, we spent a lot of time driving south but it was near enough to shops. Had car exhaust fixed very reasonably at local garage.

We were a group of four adults and three children four and under. The cottage was very clean and spacious. It had everything we could have needed for the kitchen, so very well equipped. The deck off the kitchen was a nice size and not at all crowded. The beach was fantastic for the little ones because it is quite shallow for a fair bit to allow the little ones to gain some courage before it gets too deep. We had a lot of fun down by the water. There is a small deck at the waters edge which is great to relax at but there are two unsteady steps to the sand. The downstairs also has a ton of space.
I would recommend this cottage to families or couples who just want some time away. It is very private with a lot of trees between units. It is only a short 5-7 minute drive to town so if you forget something it isn't far to pick up what you need.
The worst experience

We booked in February and we looked at a lot of cottages on this site and thought we found the perfect cottage to fit the needs of two families with small children for the month of july. Two days before our departure we get a call saying that this cottage we rented had a sewage backup and we couldnt go. Rent cottage tried to find us a cottage(so they say) but on short notice, none fit our needs and wants. One cottage they sent had slippery rocks, with small children I thought that was very unprofessional to even suggest. At least we got a full refund and went on a mission to find a cottage in one day. I found another site that helps you rent cottages and the lady worked so hard to find us a cottage. She found one but couldn't get a hold of the owners on such short notice. It was sad as we had everything prepared and ready for our week get away. The cottage we ended up with was so expensive and dirty. Needless to say I will never use rent cottages, because I felt that even though it was out of their control, and these things happen, they didn't work hard to find a replacement cottage. Or even cared that our vacation was ruined. It was too short notice and we also feel the cottage owners should check their septic tank on a regular basis considering people are paying good money to rent their cottage.

I was very happy with the service during and after booking. RentCottage staff were always nice and helpful. The cottage itself was just as nice as the photos. It's a pretty busy bay so I wouldn't recommend bringing a canoe for on the bay but maybe taking it to some of the other lakes around.
There is a boat rental company in the marina five minutes or less down the road. The prices and service are good. The dock isn't as great as it could be so we were very warily about tying the boat up to it.
beautiful view from a lovely spotless home.

enjoyed two weeks in Penetang. View was lovely and the home (not a cottage) was well equipped, tastefully decorated and spotless. Weather was poor so we could not use the water craft, but that was no reflection on the stay. The only downside (and it was minor and we found a solution) was no TV reception...all in all very very good value for the money and a most pleasant experience.
Great cottage, Will return

My family and I were only here for one night because of a function in the area and were sad that we couldn't stay longer. This is a lovely cottage (cozy, modern, clean) and the layout worked perfectly for us. It was well stocked with some supplies and lots of board games for the kids. We also enjoyed the beautiful dock and canoe. The waterfront was nice for a drink and we didn't notice that many boats in the area.
The location was close to Toronto (our drive back was only 1 hour). We hope to return again next year.
One big window!

Two families stayed in this house consisting of 4 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant. The windows off the living room make staying there worth it. Since we stayed there in the beginning of the fall, the trees were starting to turn, which was beautiful but seeing the boats constantly going by on the water was so relaxing.
This cottage had been recently updated and it shows well. The only thing that I found is the kitchen wasn't as stocked as I would have liked. If you will need any spices to cook with, bring your own because there's nothing.
The toddlers and husbands had a blast down at the water and watching the plane that lives next door take off and land on the water.

-when we arrived the floors in this cottage had been cleaned so well that they were slippery which created a problem for my disabled husband and 2 year old grandson.....they both fell!
-the cottage itself was lovely however the walk to shore and and the shoreline were very disappointing due to climb down to the shore and lack of good swimming.
-the bay was interesting but to truly enjoy this cottage you would need a motor boat
