Cottage Profile A Kincardine cottage, just for you! The "Bothy By The Beach" cottage offers three bedrooms and 1200 sq ft of living space. The cottage is located in the heart of Kincardine and is just 1 km away from the sandy shores of Station Beach on Lake Huron - and isn't far from all that this community has to offer! Walking up the front steps to the cottage you'll find yourself on the quaint front porch where you can take a seat with your morning coffee and watch the world go by at a quieter, slower pace. Directly inside is a bright, enclosed front porch with two cushioned wicker chairs looking out the large windows. Stepping into the cottage you'll find the inviting living room space with comfortable couches situated by a flat-screen TV that has a DVD player so that you can watch those favourite movies that you bring along. There are also patio doors here so you can walk out to the back deck and the grassy backyard. The charming kitchen offers you the comforts of home and your usual amenities, including fridge, stove, microwave, and even dishwasher. The dining table can seat six comfortably while a ceiling fan overhead can help keep the temperature down while you're cooking. Â The cottage offers a great games room for your family to enjoy board games or a game of cards together. This space provides a couch and two cube seats around a table that's perfect for your game. This is the ideal room for fun on a rainy day or after a day of outdoor activity and fun at the beach! There are three bedrooms at the cottage. The master bedroom offers a queen size bed and a walk-out to the back deck, as well as an electric fireplace for those chilly nights and a television for your entertainment. An additional bedroom also offers a queen bed while the third bedroom provides a set of single bunks - great for the kids in your group. The four-piece bathroom offers a combination shower/tub and an elegant vanity. For your convenience, a washer and dryer are also available for your use at the cottage. Note: there are blinds/curtains in each bedroom and in the bathroom (these were added after the photos were taken). Out on the back deck you'll have plenty of space to lounge or enjoy a meal. There is propane BBQ available for your use so after grilling up a feast you can sit at the patio table with its umbrella and four chairs and have your meal. Â There is also a picnic table available in the backyard for the whole family to enjoy a meal together, or it's a great spot for the kids to sit. Two loungers also make the perfect spot to relax in the sunshine, perhaps with that book that you've wanted to catch up on. So sit back and take in the fresh air while the kids play in the grassy space of the backyard. In Kincardine you can take a walk through the quiet community, or hop in your car for a quick drive to everything that Kincardine has to offer - from its historic downtown to great restaurants, shopping, live theatre and more. And don't miss out on Station Beach by the marina in Kincardine - just 1 km from the cottage - with its beautiful beach and fantastic boardwalk with flower gardens maintained by local volunteers. On Saturday nights the Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band Parade marches through the downtown from Victoria Park. As the parade passes by, be sure to join the townsfolk as they follow the band to enjoy a concert in the park!

Overall I really liked this property, however I think the front porch and inside porch could have been cleaner.IE: there were cobwebs in the inside porch and the chairs on the outside porch were covered in dirt and bird poop. We did not use either of these areas except to enter and exit the property. The inside of the house was spotless with the exception of some mouse droppings under the kitchen sink. The bed was very comfortable, but the living room couches not so much.. I would say everything else about this property was near perfect, from the lovely back deck to the very relaxing yard, where you could find either sun or shade .We were minutes walking to theatre beech or dining.
