This traditional cottage with an amazing view is nestled in the cedars at the water’s edge on Francis Lake. Francis Lake is a beautiful inland lake situated between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, only 15 minutes from Owen Sound and less than 30 minutes from Sauble Beach.
The 600 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage features a 400 square foot wood deck and concrete patio where you can relax in the fresh air, catch some sun, take 3 steps down to a sandy gradual entry into the water for a swim or splash around in the water.
There is also a 40 dock. Water depth at the end of the dock is about 4 feet. The cottage has a north-westerly exposure and enjoys full to partial sunsets from the front deck and dock. The cottage is a good choice for couples or a family-oriented vacation.
The cottage is set back from the road at the end of a tree lined drive (about 500 feet). Inside is an open plan living, dining and kitchen. The living area has a large picture window to take advantage of the lake view. There is a TV, DVD player, radio, and two sofas and a chair for relaxing. There are ceiling fans to help circulate air on warmer days. Next to the living area is the dining area with a table and chairs. The newly renovated kitchen has a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes and cutlery. There are windows in the kitchen looking out to the rear of the cottage and there is also a water dispenser for your drinking water.
There are three bedrooms at the cottage each with a window to let in the breeze. Two bedrooms have double beds and the third has a double/single bunk bed. The bathroom at the cottage is a three piece sink, toilet, shower.

hand at fishing. If you have your own canoe or kayak you can explore
