A waterfront cottage with spectacular views over the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay.
This cottage is a great vacation getaway choice for families or small groups with something for everyone to do. Situated on the southern shore of Georgian Bay within one of Canada's finest four season resort areas it is a marvelous location for swimming, boating, and fishing; or enjoy hiking, golfing, cycling, skiing, snowshoeing, antiquing, visiting restaurants, wineries, and artisan studios/galleries; or just simply relaxing. The choices are endless.
The cottage is located on a quiet dead-end road and features 3 bedrooms plus a bunkie, large outdoor deck area at the front, rear and side, wide double lot with cedar lined property lines for privacy, plenty of grassed yard space for the kids, and superb water views.
The rear entrance leads to a small but efficient kitchen with a double window over the sink and a ceiling fan. The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes, utensils, serving plates, pots and pans you will need during your stay and includes fridge, stove, microwave, oven, toaster, kettle, tea pot, and coffee maker. Conveniently located next to the kitchen is an open plan dining and living room.
There is a table and six chairs in the dining room. The living room features a stone, gas fireplace for cool evenings or apres-ski (there are also electric baseboard heaters), two walls of large bright windows, a comfy u-shaped couch with chaise for relaxing with your favourite book, a radio, and a 27” TV and Blu-Ray DVD for enjoying a movie night with the family. There is a door in the living room that leads to the front deck.
There are 3 bedrooms and a 3 piece sink, toilet, tub/shower bathroom. Each of the bedrooms has windows for light and ventilation. There is a queen bed in the first bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom, and a bunk bed in the third bedroom. There is also a separate bunkie with a bunk bed and pullout couch.
The front deck is a great spot for the early birds in your group to enjoy a morning coffee and the beautiful sun rises over the bay. Later in the day you can watch the white sails of the boats on the aqua blue water of Georgian Bay. With front, side and rear deck areas, 2 patio tables, and 12 chairs there are plenty of options for enjoying the fresh air, catching some sun, relaxing in the shade with a good book, socializing, taking advantage of the bay view, or sitting down to enjoy a family outdoor dinner.
There is a propane BBQ for grilling your favourite vacation meals. Be sure to bring your outdoor yard games, the large grassed lawn area is a great place for kids to play. It’s just a short stroll to the water where the shore has a sand/gravel bottom and a very shallow entry. Gradual entry into the water allows for good swimming. This would also make a great spot to launch your canoe or kayak if you have your own. If not, no worries, there is a canoe (with paddles & life jackets for 2 adults and 2 children) available for your use. There are also bicycles available for 2 adults and 2 children.
