Waterfront 4 bedroom, 2000 square foot cottage located on the shores of Corisande Bay (accessed via Dorcas Bay Road) on the Northern Bruce Peninsula, with just a short drive into the popular village of Tobermory.
The cottage property encompasses two lots and has excellent screening provided by natural forest. This gives you the space and privacy to truly get away and enjoy your holiday. The cottage is 200 feet from the road, so wind up the driveway to your retreat amongst the trees!
The main level of the cottage is the upper level, and this is where you'll find the kitchen, dining and living areas, all open concept.
The modern kitchen space offers many of the amenities of comforts of home, as well as ample cupboard and counter space, including an island. The kitchen provides a fridge, stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher and more for your convenience and to handle your family meals. The dining table sits just adjacent, situated in front of large and bright windows that look out to the shore. The seating is comprised of two chairs and two benches to sit eight for a sit-down meal.
Next to the kitchen is the comfortable living room space with two couches, a coffee table, and a woodstove that could take the chill out of cooler seasons. Patio doors from here exit out to the deck.
On the main level you will find one of the four bedrooms at this cottage. This bedroom has a queen size bed in addition to a set of single bunkbeds. There is also a bathroom on this main level - a four-piece with a tub/shower combination.
From the main level there are stairs to the cottage's upper level, where you will find two more bedrooms. One bedroom offers a queen size bed while the other is the master bedroom. The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed, a three-piece ensuite bathroom with a shower, and there are patio doors out to a fantastic deck. Take a seat out on this deck in either of the Muskoka chairs, and enjoy an elevated view out to the shoreline. This would be great spot to take in a sunset too!
Back on the main level, there are also stairs down to the lower level of the cottage, and this is where you will find one other bedroom. This bedroom has a set of single bunks, ample space, a 37" TV with Netflix, and there are doors out to the front yard.
Out on the cottage deck you'll find a patio table with umbrella and chairs to sit in the fresh air and enjoy a meal or games together. The propane BBQ is available for your use to grill up a feast, while there are also loungers for you to sit down, stretch out, and relax in the sun or shade.
The shoreline is natural and includes a mix of flat honeycombed rock, stones, and grasses and plants. Just 20 ft in front of the cottage you'll find a stone-surrounded fire pit so that you can sit 'round a campfire in the evening and take in the beautiful starry sky, uninhibited by any city lights. In addition, there is a firebowl down at the shoreline so you can enjoy this too. Entry into the water is gradual, with better swimming further out. To explore Corisande Bay, you can use the pair of kayaks that are available to you - enjoy a paddle with a family member or friend!
The cottage is centrally located to many points of interest on the Northern Bruce Peninsula. The village of Tobermory - with its shops, restaurants, harbour and boat tours - is just a 15 minute drive away. Bruce Peninsula National Park, with its fantastic hiking trails and cliff-top views of the escarpment, is just ten minutes from the cottage. Singing Sands public beach is a great beach for kids and whole family. It offers sandy shores and gradual entry so the youngsters can splash around at shore and the swimmers in your group can wade into deeper water for great swimming. Get out and explore!
