Cottage Profile

This is a graceful, old, 2 storey home hearkening back to the early historic settlement days of beautiful Southampton .

With its yellow Paisley brick and expansive grounds, you have found a paradise within walking distance of downtown Southampton. Therefore, you may enjoy the downtown shops, walk to the beautiful public beach then return to the house and its oasis-like backyard patio and shady coolness.

You have municipal services so there are none of the septic bed or water issues that typically accompany cottages.

While you are on a major road into and out of the town, once situated around the kidney-shaped pool or wandering through the lush gardens, the sounds of the road are left behind.

You have the choice of the sunny poolside patio or the quiet garden patio shaded by the house.

The home has four bedrooms all reached by ascending the sweeping ‘Gone With the Wind’ staircase with smooth carved wooden railing that greets you at the front door.
As you enter, you will see the comfortable sitting room bathed in warm evening sun. The room is focused on the large fireplace. It has a comfortable couch and an easy chair. Central air conditioning is available for additional comfort on those hot days.

The kitchen has a large country feel with central table and chairs. It seats six people comfortably. You will find all the appliances necessary for your culinary convenience. It comes equipped with fridge, stove, and microwave – it even has a dishwasher. Or you can seat your party at the large formal table in the adjacent dining room.

There is a washer and dryer in the small mudroom as you leave the kitchen to head out to the garden patio and BBQ. No need to take your weeks laundry home or to the laundromat.

Under the poolside umbrella is the natural place to read this summer’s novel but, if the sun is too hot, use the cool den to read (and watch the evening’s DVD movies). When you feel the need to press ‘pause’, there is a 2-piece bathroom adjacent to eliminate the need to run upstairs. Here you’ll find a couch and chair along with television with VCR and DVD player for those rainy days at the cottage or the family movie. But on the hot days, you’ll probably want to sit on the cool, shady patio!

After your busy day at the beach and following the evening pool dip, retire upstairs to one of the 4 bedrooms.
Bedroom 1, which faces to the street, has a flouncy feminine feel and a queen sized bed. There is a bedside table and lamp to permit a little more evening reading. Bedroom 2 has a cozy cavernous feel with a double bed. Bedroom 3, to your right at the top of the stairs, is the ‘Dream Room’ and faces out to the pool and rear yard. It too has a queen bed. Bedroom 4, at the end of the hall, is less elaborate with a double bed.

The upstairs bathroom is tiled and has white fixtures. It is a 4-piece bathroom.

Six and a half (6.5) blocks (700m – 10 minutes away along High St) away from the cottage is the main sandy-bottom beach of Southampton public beach. Bring your camera for the beautiful sunsets!

This beach is ideal for younger children and has a washroom. Use the Beach, then walk up the street for ice cream or lunch! The beach is gradual entry with a sandy bottom and good swimming.

Also along this fabulous beach you will find a historic boardwalk that stretches for about a mile. Bring your beach umbrella (or get a coveted shady spot under the trees) and shovel and join the children building a dream sandcastle. (P.S. Tell the museum if you find another buried shipwreck! The plaque for the 1700's General Hunter is just down the beach).There is also a children's playground and a menagerie of benches.

The cottage is located in close proximity to a wide variety of activities that Southampton has to offer. Enjoy a short walk or drive to downtown to see the lighthouse and long pier, which is a perfect place for fishing, or to a wonderful fine dining restaurant (don't miss the Elk and Finch or the Mid Summers Dream cafe!) Or travel into Port Elgin to try the fine Italian fare at Rosina Restoranti (7.5km to the south). In Port Elgin, there’s also Andre’s (http://www.andresswissdining.com/) and Allans Fireside Grill (http://allansfiresidegrill.com/) to choose from.
Southampton is a town known for its "Old Time Charm". Take one of the daily chartered rides to Chantry Island, a restored 1859 Lake Huron lighthouse or take in some of the lovely shops.

The nearby Saugeen First Nation Amphitheater has one of the most remarkable gardens in Western Ontario, and is just 2 km away.
Golfing is also nearby - there's the Chippewa course 3 minutes away or the Saugeen Golf course on County Road 3 towards Port Elgin (Sauble and Port Elgin offer up some golf variety).
Remember that Cruise Nite is every Thursday night at the big flag. Walk and dream amongst the antique and classic cars. Eat your ice creams first please!
Museums - walk to the Southampton Museum and Archives.
Art Gallery and School – walk to the Southampton Art Gallery School.
