Cottage Profile Lovely Ontario heritage home located only 6 km from one of the nicest sand beaches in Ontario. This renovated farm house is located in a quiet rural area close to many activities, including Bruce Beach (6 km), Kincardine Board Walk and historic down town (10 km) and Ainsdale Golf course (6 km). Your family will want to gather every morning in the large, newly-renovated country kitchen as you make your plans for area sightseeing whether by bicycle or car. If you decide to enjoy your immediate surroundings you can stroll around the property or along the quiet country road the home is located on. The Stone House is a great choice for quiet contemplation or for yard games with the kids. On rainy days, you will find a selection of DVD’s to keep you amused. The kitchen will seat eight comfortably and adjacent to it is the living area. The living area is a welcoming space to sit and relax with your family and watch a movie on the DVD player to unwind after a day of outdoor enjoyment. Also on the main floor are two bedrooms, one with two single beds and one with a set of single bunkbeds. Upstairs you will find the other two bedrooms, one with a double and one with a queen. Central air conditioning will only add to your great nights’ sleep. A full four-piece bath is located upstairs and a two-piece is located adjacent to the kitchen. A washer and dryer are located on the basement level as well as a carpeted play area for the kids on a rainy day. Outside on the rear deck, you will find 4 Muskoka chairs and a patio set with umbrella. A picnic table, propane BBQ and kids’ playground equipment are also available. A fire pit is located on the big grassy yard and is perfect for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows under the starry summer skies, free of ambient light. This lovely fieldstone house is on a quiet, paved secondary road and is quite private. The closest and only neighbours are across the road, screened by lots of trees. It is merely a few minutes from Lake Huron beaches (Bruce Beach & Boiler Beach), the Pine River Cheese outlet and the town of Kincardine. In Kincardine, you will find all manner of things to do including a 22 km multi-use trail system, public beaches, festivals, galleries and a lovely boardwalk along the beach. The main street is brimming with shopping and dining options, some with local Scottish flair! In fact every Saturday evening in the summer months you can enjoy the local Scottish pipe band parade. The Stone House has been lovingly restored and makes for a charming rural Ontario vacation stay.

We have our 3 sons and my mother accompanied us in our first cottage experience. We reluctantly picked this cottage and the area but we appreciated every moment of our stay. The atmosphere had something for all ages and tastes and we have closed proximity of the city life, beach and mini golf.
The cottage itself was very nicely and tastefully maintained and lush green field and trees along with corn fields make the overall environment very soothing and relaxing.

Cottage was very quaint and charming. It was clean in all necessary areas. I dldidnt end up liking the idea of cleaning the coabdttage,vacuuming, washing floors, dusting etc. It seemed that the only cleaning was ever done by guests. Light fixtures and furniture were quite dustyabove/ below eye level.
The cottage is a 5-10min drive to beach or town, alot further than we thought as far as being a cottage. Its located around farms and windmills if that is a concern. We had a great time though and would stay again if something closer to beach was not available.
