The cottage was lovely. It is well laid out and is right on Big Tub harbour. On three days of our week long stay we swam out and dove on the 2 wrecks in Big Tub.
The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and will be returning.

This lovely cottage is clean, cozy, and very welcoming. It was in perfect condition when we arrived and even had a fresh batch of roses in the kitchen. The neighbours, owners of the cottage, were very friendly too. The cottage is close to Tobermory business district and you can walk there if you're up for it. Great place and highly recommended.
