Note: Many of the pictures on this web page have been
taken using a 16 mm wide angle lens. We use this lens to show as much detail
as possible in each of the rooms of the cottage.This makes the rooms seem
larger than they really are.
Please Note: The water levels in Ontario have been fluctuating in recent years. Therefore, some of the photographs of shorelines/beaches on this website may not fully reflect current waterfront conditions.
The perfect vacation awaits you in this 3-bedroom, 1900 square-foot
waterfront cottage. The cottage is located on the shores of Dorcas
Bay, off Lake Huron on the Northern Bruce Peninsula. Enjoy the convenience
of a short drive into the quaint village of Tobermory. Spend the
day at popular Singing Sands Beach or head out for a hike at the
Bruce Peninsula National Park.
The cottage property has neighbours only on one side and offers
good screening provided by natural forest. This gives you the space
and privacy to truly get away and enjoy your holiday.
The cottage was recently completely renovated with modern decor.
It features an open-concept design with kitchen, dining, living
areas and a den, all in the same large space. There are three large
picture windows that provide stunning open views of Lake Huron.
You can even enjoy spectacular sunsets right from the dining table
itself through the summer months.
The modern kitchen space offers many of the amenities and comforts
of home. There are ample cupboards and counter space, including
a large island. The kitchen provides a fridge, gas stove/oven, microwave
and dishwasher so you can easily handle your family meals.The large
solid wood dining table sits just adjacent to the kitchen/bar island
and in front of large and bright windows that look out to the shore.
The dining table seats six comfortable. Next to the dining area
is the cozy living room space with a couch and a gas fireplace to
relax around and enjoy on those cooler evenings.
Three bedrooms at this cottage allow all the kids and parents to
have their own space while on vacation. The spacious master bedroom
has a queen-size bed and features its own large tub right in the
room. It also has an ensuite powder room and a separate sitting
area with an amazing view of Lake Huron. There is also a large walk-out
balcony. You can watch the glory of each day’s sunset right
from your room.
The two other bedrooms hold a double bed and a set of single bunk
beds, with each having multiple windows, some of them with views
to the shoreline through the trees.
The cottage has a separate family/recreation room, which has lots
of comfortable furnishings. Enjoy a family movie on the 48"
High Def TV and Blue-ray DVD player. There is a large wrap-around
deck that provides ample patio space. On the deck, you’ll
find patio tables and chairs to sit in the fresh air and enjoy a
meal or games together. There is a propane BBQ for you to cook up
those family feasts. You will also find Muskoka chairs to sit down,
stretch out, and relax in the sun or shade with a great open view
of the Lake at all times of the day.
The shore-line is natural and includes a mix of flat honeycombed
rock, stones, grasses and plants. Entry into the water is gradual,
via flat rock or a sanded pathway into a shallow, large, clear area
protected by a natural narrow rocky spit, with swimming further
out. The cottage has a fire pit, so that you can sit around the
campfire in the evening, roasting marshmallows, and take in the
beautiful stars, unobstructed by any city lights.
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 20-minute
drive away. Bruce Peninsula National Park, with its fantastic hiking
trails and cliff-top views of the escarpment, is just 15 minutes
from the cottage. Singing Sands public beach, which is a great beach
for kids and the whole family, is just a short drive away as well.
It offers sandy shores and gradual entry so that youngsters can
splash around at shore and the swimmers in your group can wade into
deeper water for great swimming. Get out and explore!
