A king-sized bed, walk-in closet and hardwood floors make this room a haven for quiet enjoyment. The master ensuite bath with ceramic floors, corner soaking tub, large glass corner shower, oak vanity, towel cupboard, and toilet, complete this private space. Located just off the master bedroom, a small office space with a desk, chair, and telephone provides a place for those who need to work while at the cottage. The wireless internet allows you to work from any part of the cottage. The ground floor can be accessed from the upper level of the cottage as well as via an interior staircase or it can be accessed from two exterior doors (carport and lakeside of cottage). When you enter the upper level via the exterior roadside door the staircase is immediately to your left. The second and third bedrooms are located on the ground floor, as well as a three-piece bathroom with a corner shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed, while the third bedroom has a set of bunkbeds with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. Each of these bedrooms has a dresser, closet and views of the lake. The third bedroom is also equipped with a 32" HD TV and Wii game system with games. Great for the kids! The cottage is equipped as a year-round residence with forced air propane furnace, air exchanger, central vac, satellite television, telephone, wireless internet, and attached carport. The grounds of this property allow you to find your own special spot: the covered patio with wooden chairs; the open patio with porch swing, picnic table and benches; a chair nestled under the trees overlooking the gardens; one of the two lake side decks with chairs and lounges; the roadside Bruce Peninsula stone patio with Adirondack chairs to catch the morning sun; or a stroll along the dry creek bed. The mature landscaping and wonderful gardens are favoured by butterflies, dragonflies, and a variety of birds, making this cottage the ideal get-away. The undulating shoreline with pockmarked limestone, once an ancient coral reef, is home to many fascinating fossils and rock formations. Swimming shoes are recommended. The shore drops off to a good swimming depth, with shoals and islands nearby. Eagle Harbour is a wonderful area to kayak or canoe. Bring your own or arrange for a rental from the Outfitter in Tobermory, who will deliver it to your door. The cottage is located approximately 13 km southwest of Tobermory on a paved road. A 10 minute drive gets you to great hiking or a sandy beach. Within the village of Tobermory you will find opportunities for shopping, eating out, or taking a boat tour. And why not relax on the veranda, with a glass of wine or cup of tea and let one of the spectacular sunsets provide the perfect ending to your day at Huron Cedars? Come by yourself, with family or friends and enjoy this lovely property!

Huron Cedars was awesome!
The cottage had absolutely everything, clean, bright and very comfortable 5 star!
The grounds were beautiful and well planned, the view of the lake and sunsets were stunning.
This is definitely a place of privacy I can not wait to take my family back next year

The entire rental experience was smooth and effortless. The cottage was great--spacious, luxurious, comfortable and impeccably clean. The location was perfect for us: far enough away from everything to feel like a private get-away, and close enough to Tobermory to allow easy access to all the activities available there. Watching the sun set from any one of the four vantage points was lovely!
The cottage was beyond our expectations.
The photos on the website just don't do the cottage, or its view of the lake justice. It was an absolutely beautiful cottage - clean and spacious. The gardens were spectacular at the time, and the views from all the different vantage points were stunning. Although it may not be best rental for someone requiring easy accessibility as there were a few stairs in and around the cottage, and a rocky walk out to the shoreline.
We certainly hope to return.
It was a quiet place to get away and enjoy the surroundings.

Huron Cedars offers everything one needs for a comfortable holiday. It is comfortably furnished and decorated, which offers the traveler a sense of being in a "home away from home". The outdoor living spaces are impressive. Most enjoyable are the evenings spent watching the sun set over the small inlet known as Eagle Harbour.
