Cottage Profile Stunning, newly constructed three bedroom cottage set in a natural setting just outside of Grand Bend near the friendly cottage community of Port Franks. The spectacular pine-paneled cathedral ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows in the main living area create a dramatic yet inviting atmosphere in this space, while the beautiful hardwood floors throughout the cottage remind you that this cottage is a home-away-from-home. The kitchen has all of the amenities of home, including stainless steel appliances (dishwasher too!) and ample cupboard and granite counter space to make meal prep easy. A breakfast bar with four stools opposite the sink offers a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee, or you can take a seat at the dining table with its six chairs situated by large, bright windows for a view of the outdoors. A comfortable living room area sits on the opposite side of a four-sided gas fireplace that can be enjoyed by those in the kitchen and the living room to take the chill out of a cool spring morning or fall evening. Two comfortable couches sit next to a staircase leading to the upstairs. Relax in this space with a good book or enjoy the company of those in your group while you take advantage of the natural light streaming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. For your convenience, the main floor provides a powder room with sink and toilet as well as a laundry room with washer and dryer for your use. On the main level of the cottage you will find the spacious master bedroom that offers a king size bed, walk in closet and an ensuite four-piece bathroom with a combination oversized 6' Jacuzzi tub/shower and dual sinks. Upstairs are two bedrooms. One is perfect for the kids, it has a single over double bunkbed. The third bedroom has a queen sized bed with two windows. There is an additional four-piece bathroom on this level that also has a combination tub/shower. Each of the bedrooms has a ceiling fan to help keep you cool, although on those stifling days the cottage's air conditioning could definitely provide relief from the heat! On the upper level is also a second, petit living space with a comfortable couch situated by a 46" flat-screen HD TV equipped with a DVD player. Just adjacent to this is the doors to the fantastic upper deck space - there's even a small sink by the door, the perfect spot to prepare your drinks before heading out into the fresh air. On this upper deck â surrounded by deck glass so as not to impede your view â you'll find a variety of seating to make this setting comfortable for you. There are two loungers for you to stretch out in with a book, or choose the patio table and two chairs (plus a loveseat) to enjoy a cup of tea and catch up with your family members. Or there's a bar-style seating space with five raised chairs - a great spot to enjoy the meal that you've cooked up on the propane BBQ that's also available for your use at the cottage. In the natural, non-landscaped backyard at the cottage there is a fire pit so you can enjoy a campfire with those in your group. Just minutes from Highway 21, this cottage's location provides you with easy access to Port Franks (with its sandy beach) just 7 km away, as well as Ipperwash Beach just 12 km down the road. The cottage is a 9 minute drive (13 km) away from Grand Bend - a popular tourist destination that offers outdoor dining, shopping opportunities, and a popular public sand beach. This cottage provides you with a comfortable place to relax inside - and out on the deck - and any easy location from which you can explore the surrounding area.

This is one very beautiful home in a nice quiet area. The inside design is awesome with the high fireplace and pine ceilings.
All new high end fixtures and very nice kitchen that even had a pasta pot filler above the stove.
One of the nicest places I have been in.

The cottage is beautiful! Stayed there for 1 week. Very comfortable! The only concern that I have with the cottage is that the property owner requires renters to take the garbage at the end of your stay.
