    Welcome to the charming and idyllic Carrier Cottage on Parker Island. Parker Island is a special place full of a history of all season activity. Originally, the island was established for seasonal hunting, fishing and various kinds of water sports. Now, this quiet island community proudly boasts a number of homes and seasonal residences. This waterfront cottage is located on the Lake Huron side of the Bruce Peninsula overlooking Myles Bay. It is 25 minutes south of the town of Tobermory and 35 minutes north of Wiarton, and ten minutes west of the Village of Lions Head. It is a special place for making memories with family and friends.

    The Carrier Cottage offers complete privacy surrounded by a variety of indigenous trees and spectacular lakefront views of Myles Bay, and Black Creek Provincial Park with its blond, sandy beach. You can easily kayak, canoe or walk to Black Creek’s beach from the cottage The cottage has a dock, and a sandy rock shoreline with a shallow sand-based entry into the water for kids, and tentative adult swimmers. Spend your day along the cottage’s waterfront, sitting on the dock, swimming in the clean waters of Myles Bay or just sit and relax on the front deck and watch the beautiful Lake Huron sunsets. In the winter months, enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking from the cottage while also accessing ice fishing and snowmobiling trails that are close by.

    A very clean and bright, two-storey, 1500 sq. ft. year-round stone waterfront cottage. The open concept first floor is designed with a full kitchen with a dishwasher, dining and living areas, which feature two eight-foot patio doors offering a majestic view of Myles Bay. On each floor there are two three-piece bathrooms (i.e., toilet, vanity and shower). The second floor offers four sizable bedrooms with good beds: one king, one queen, one double and a single over double bunkbed. Heating: A ductless system offers both heating and air-conditioning, and a propane stone fireplace anchors the first-floor space.

PHOTO STORY: A Day at the Cottage

    A summer vacation at the Carrier Cottage begins for me, when I cross over the land causeway and take a pause, and breath in the my first sight of Myles Bay, and look to the point, from the right side of the car, where in the distance is the stone cottage nestled behind a community of trees. Driving up the tree lined circular driveway, I capture my first glimpse of the cottage; I park, and enter the cottage, where I just want to drop my bags, sit down, relax and enjoy the view of Myles Bay. Then, we all run upstairs to decide who gets what bedroom --- hmmm… which one of the spacious second floor bedrooms should I choose? - all the beds look so comfy.

    But, it is calming waters of Myles Bay that draw me outside to explore. I love the property's extensive sandy and rock shoreline, which offers easy entry to the water for taking out a kayak, paddle-board, canoe or just to go swimming. During my week stay, the cottage property provides plenty of areas to play in the sand, sit in the sun or shade, hangout on the dock, read a book in a hammock, or play a game of croquet or just sit on the deck. Of course, every morning I get up and go for a walk to the sandy beach at Black Creek Provincial Park, where I can see the cottage across the water. If I need veggies for dinner, I take a 10 minute drive into Lions Head to the farmer's market (Saturdays) or explore further north on the Bruce Peninsula to my favorite beach - Singing Sands or we all go for a hike and discover the hiking trails along the Bruce Trails.

    But, at the end of day, I always make back it back to the cottage for our nightly ritual --- sitting on the dock and watching the stunning Lake Huron sunsets, and as night falls off - we build a fire in the fire pit, and roast marshmallows or make yummy S'mores. As the summer vacation winds down, I think....How about a winter vacation at the Carrier Cottage? I know I can always come back in the winter to sit by the fireplace or enjoy the peaceful winter wonderland or take in activities like cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice-fishing and snowshoeing.

    Enjoy your stay, and please be respectful of your neighbours.
