Cottage Profile

Comfortable 1100 square foot, two bedroom cottage located on the shores of Georgian Bay at Dyer's Bay on the Northern Bruce Peninsula. Head down to the great shoreline with its crystal clear, turquoise waters. The escarpment bluffs, magnificent sunrises and relaxed way of life is the perfect setting for your getaway. This is the perfect cottage for a family!

Pull up the driveway (note the cottage is on a double lot with a shared driveway) and arrive at your holiday home. Inside, you may notice the beautiful cedar walls which give the space the perfect 'cottage' feel.

Enter into the petit kitchen with many of the amenities of home including fridge, stove/oven, microwave and more for your meal preparation. A petit dining table with two chairs is a good spot to grab a bite to eat before heading outdoors for the day!

The front room is the living room space and it offers a couch that folds out to a queen bed, as well as a wall mounted 32" HD TV with DVD player for your movie watching pleasure. Bright windows in this space give you a view out to the front deck, as well as a doorway.

There are two bedrooms at the cottage, including one with a queen size bed. In another room there are two sets of single bunkbeds - perfect for the kids! - with a ceiling fan overhead to keep the air circulating and a table by the bright windows that would be great for crafts on a rainy day. The cottage bathroom is a three-piece with a shower.

Out on the great deck space is a picnic table with umbrella for your outdoor dining and foldable chairs for you to take a seat with a book, a beverage, or just to take in the fresh air and the sound of the waves. Down at the shore a fire pit provides the perfect spot for a campfire.

There is a stone trail with steps from the cottage down the embankment to the shoreline. The shoreline consists of a pebble beach and out in the water there are flat rocks and the water deepens quickly for great swimming.

This cottage is on a shared lot with Cottage #896, and there are a variety of amenities shared between the two cottages. These shared amenities include bicycles, a kayak and canoe, life jackets, wet suits, snorkelling gear, a swing set and toys. In the brown shed there are also grills for each cottage to use.

The cottage is located directly between Tobermory and Lion's Head, two quaint villages that offer plenty of enjoyment for you and your family. Lion's Head has a lovely public sand beach, while Tobermory offers a beautiful natural harbour with boat tours out to Fathom Five National Marine Park. Both villages offer grocery stores, an LCBO, a bank and local shops and restaurants.

From the cottage you are within easy access to the Bruce Trail, with its world class hiking opportunities. So get out and enjoy the natural environment around you and leave the busy-ness of work life behind!
