Just 1.5 hours from the Greater Toronto Area, this executive all-season vacation home offers breathtaking views of Georgian Bay and the serenity of cottage life yet only 15 minutes away from the Midland area shopping, dining, entertainment and attractions.
Newly renovated and updated, with 3,100 square foot, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and over 100 feet of flat rock Georgian Bay shoreline, this property provides ample amenities and space for families or small groups to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing vacation at any time of the year.
Inside, the modern 3-level air conditioned waterfront vacation home
is fully equipped and attractively furnished with an upscale decor,
3 fireplaces, and gleaming hardwood floors that provide a warm and
welcoming atmosphere. There are plenty of large bright windows and
all rooms (except laundry and bathrooms) offer great Georgian Bay
waterfront and sunset views.
The great room with vaulted ceiling, the family room with wrap around windows, and the loft sitting area with a patio door to the upper deck provide lots of options for socializing, enjoying a family movie night, watching the game or just simply relaxing. There is WIFI, Blu-Ray DVD, and two 55” HD cable televisions.

The rear grassed yard is a great place for kids to play. It just a short walk to the shore where you will find a firepit and chairs for evening campfires, marshmallow roasting, and taking in some of the nicest sunsets. The water depth increases gradually for swimming or just splashing around. This would also make a great spot to launch your canoe or kayak if you have your own.
