Cottage Profile 'View-tiful' - the perfect term for a cottage that provides beautiful, panoramic views of Jackson's Cove while also providing privacy and the opportunity to relax in a natural setting. This 2100 square foot cottage on Georgian Bay also includes 350 square feet of deck space overlooking the cool blue water. Sit outside and enjoy your summer barbecue feast, prepared on the propane BBQ provided, and eat at the patio table with the umbrella keeping the sun out of your eyes. There are plenty of chairs on the deck so you can sit with a good book, listen to the waves, and soak up the sun's rays. Out at the shoreline there is a patio so you can sit in either of the two Muskoka chairs before launching a kayak from the dock. Head off the main deck area and into a bright, spacious kitchen with spectacular views of the water. There is a kitchen table with six chairs, a breakfast island, beautiful granite countertops and all the amenities of home including a microwave, stove/oven and dishwasher. The living room area is adjacent to the kitchen and includes bamboo flooring that continues throughout most of the cottage. A leather sofa welcomes you to sit by the fireplace or the 46" large screen television, or sit at another sofa facing out to the large windows letting in plenty of natural light. Another living room is available upstairs, although smaller, but is a great place for the kids to hang out away from parents looking for some quiet time. The master bedroom is perfect for your getaway with a queen size bed, ensuite 3-piece bathroom with a shower, a television, and a walk out onto the upper deck. Sit out on this deck area and enjoy your morning coffee before the day's activities begin. There are an additional two bathrooms at the cottage including another 3-piece and also a 4-piece with tub and shower. Two more bedrooms offer space for your family, with a double bed and another queen size and each with its own great view of Georgian Bay. Upstairs in the hallway there is a double size pull-out sofa bed too. For your convenience a washer and dryer are available for use at the cottage, and feel free to use the two kayaks that are available for your enjoyment. The shoreline at the cottage is a mixture of flat limestone rock, with some rubble. Swim shoes are recommended and there is gradual entry into the water with great swimming. There are many activities in the area - the Bruce Trail can be accessed easily from the cottage, and swimming, fishing, and hiking are all popular things to do on the Bruce Peninsula.

the ladder from the dock was removed so we could not really swim, there was not a curtain on one window so we could not sleep in, the bbq lighter was empty, the neighbour one on side was so close you could hear him cough and on the other side we could hear their alarm clock radio and the internet did not work. With the amount that the cottage was for the weeks rental we were very very disappointed. Read more
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at this property however, it is accurately portrayed on the site without curtains, no dock ladder and the site indicates that there are neighbours on both sides of the cottage but they are screened from view. With respect to the internet, we would prefer that you contact us while you are at the property so that we can maximize your enjoyment of your vacation. This is something that could have been easily solved by a quick phone call. In future, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will happily try and resolve any issues we are able to.

We are repeat customers with Rentcottage.com and every year, before the last snow, we begin the search for our summer vacation cottage. The site has great selection, filters and details which makes the process fun and easy.
This year we stayed at 'Viewtiful' on Jackson's Cove, a part of the gorgeous Georgian Bay. It was a comfortable drive to either Wiarton or Lion's head for supplies and a day trip to Sauble Beach was an easy jaunt.
We arrived at an amazing summer home with modern finishes, decor and amenities. The gourmet kitchen was much appreciated by the amateur chefs in the family. The views from both of the two stories were staggering. There was a dock to swim from and the sea kayaks provided great exercise and enjoyment.
Days were full of activity and evenings were full of good meals, group games and campfire memories. There was enough room for all of us to comfortably be together yet have our own space and privacy should we wish.
When it was time to leave, we had unfortunately left a couple of items behind. An email and voice message left on a holiday weekend to the RentCottage team resulted in a surprisingly immediate response, quick contact with the owners, collection of the items which were forwarded by mail and received within a week. This was exceptional service - above and beyond what was expected.
We will definitely keep Viewtiful on our list of choices when we begin our happy search next year
