Looking for a secluded cottage in a great natural setting? This 1500 square foot cottage on Dorcas Bay may be perfect for you to reconnect with the environment while enjoying some peace and privacy.
The outdoor deck and patio area is a great place for you to sit and enjoy the summer sun or a starry evening in the Muskoka chairs. The yard is good for kids to run around and play in, while the shoreline is just a quick walk down the trail (the water is visible beyond the natural vegetation).
You'll find tongue-and-grove cedar throughout the interior of the cottage which helps to enhance the cottage atmosphere and provide a comfortable setting for relaxation. The kitchen offers many of the amenities of home including a fridge, stove/oven and microwave and bright window right above the sink.

This is where you'll find cozy couches surrounding a wood-burning stove - the perfect spot to curl up with a good book once you've had enough sun for the day.

bedroom there is a queen bed and reading lamps so you can catch
up with your novel after a day of exploring Tobermory. The second
bedroom includes two double beds . A third bedroom is where you
