The cottage is exactly as the posting describes. It is five minutes north of Lion's Head, a small town with a grocery store, Lcbo and a Royal bank - all the amenities you'll need for your stay. It was a 3 hr drive from Toronto.
Every morning the sun would rise from the lake, which was beautiful, unless you were trying to catch some extra winks after a long night (we were with small children). Perhaps the owner could purchase some heavier curtains for the east facing bedrooms.
The area is beautiful and the neighbors were friendly. The Bruce Trail (amazing hike!) runs right by the property and it is on a quiet dead end street, which was perfect for us. We did day trips to Tobermory, Hope Bay and Sandy Beach.
Wi-Fi is non-existent, which was fine for us as we were looking to get away from it all for a week. The owners should pick up a wireless booster if they are going to post it as a feature. The signal comes from the owners' place next door.
The cottage is perched up high, with 2 decks and the property is beautiful and well maintained. Everything that you could ask for from a cottage and easily accommodated 5 adults and 3 children.

This was a fully equipped and welcoming 3br cottage
with plenty of knotty pine and fabulous views of
Lion's Head and Isthmus Bay. The main br has wall
to wall glass looking over Georgian Bay and the
wrap around deck is a great place for a meal or
sitting out. The kitchen had all requirements for 6
and the very comfortable living room with wood
burning fireplace had a full AV system and
satellite TV. The cottage was very well cared for
and was spotless clean when we arrived. It was easy
to launch kayaks from the flat rock shore. The
birds were plentiful: redstarts, mergansers,
hummingbirds, goshawk, terns, warblers, phoebes,
etc. We will certainly return.
