Description ↑↓

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.

    Custom-built, 1800 sq ft, 2 bedroom waterfront cottage located just 2 km from Tobermory on China Cove on the shores of beautiful Lake Huron.
    This three-level, stone timberframe cottage has maple hardwood floors throughout, and pine baseboards and window frames. There is also a multi-level deck that surrounds the cottage, giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the fresh air!
    Inside the cottage you'll find an open concept kitchen and living area. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is complete with a dishwasher and all the conveniences of home. Ample counter space and the open feeling of the space will ease meal preparation. While the 'cook' is in the kitchen, guests can sit at any of the three stools at the breakfast bar and enjoy a coffee and a chat.
    Another set of stairs will lead you up to the small third level of the cottage - watch out, these stairs are steep! On this level you'll find a small nook with a single padded chair. This is the perfect spot to escape with a book.
    The outside of the cottage has plenty to offer as well! A propane BBQ is available for you to cook up a feast, and you can sit outside and enjoy your meal at the patio table and six chairs.
    The cottage is located 2 km from the village of Tobermory where you can enjoy shopping along the harbourfront, eating out, and taking boat tours of Fathom Five National Marine Park. You also won't be far from Bruce Peninsula National Park for outdoor exploration, as well as just a quick drive to the sandy shores of Singing Sand Beach!

Large house, but uncomfortable and needs maintenance

By: Trip Date: 09/05/2021

The house is large, but it’s uncomfortable and needs maintenance. About five windows had crank handles that didn’t work. One living room screen fell out onto the floor. About ten light bulbs were out or missing during our visit.

The property description is incorrect about the third floor. During our visit, there was no reading chair – just a mattress covered by a torn sheet.

The jacuzzi tub is a foot away from the master fuse panel for the house. This is unappealing. Also, the rain shower head drips cold water on a person who’s taking a normal hot shower. And the toilet whistles like a tea kettle when it is flushed.

The house is dark even when the sun is out. In the photos in the property description, most rooms have all lights on during the day.

On a positive note, the house has many rooms and can accommodate a large group. The kitchen appliances worked without problem.
