Cottage Profile This four-bedroom waterfront cottage is located on a private dead-end road just 1.5 km from a beautiful public sandy beach in the village of Lion's Head. The cottage has spectacular views of the Niagara Escarpment and great swimming for children. The cottage is 2000 square feet in size and its unique feature is that it has two separate levels with private entrances to each level (note: neither can be reached from the inside). Finished in pine, the cottage provides those on vacation with that 'cottage feel' and still has an airy, bright, and spacious feel thanks to the windows and skylights throughout. The beautiful aquamarine color of the water, large shoreline boulders and limestone cliffs complete this beautiful setting. On the lower level of the cottage you will find the kitchen, living area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. This lower living area also provides a large space to sit around and chat with six chairs, a couch, and a great view of Isthmus Bay out the large picture window. The living area and kitchen space are open concept with plenty of cupboard and counter space. Just off of the lower living area is a set of French doors which will take you to the dining area. Here you will find a table and chairs for six. There is also a desk here with wireless internet for those who need to stay connected over the holidays. Doors off of this dining area take you out to a massive deck that overlooks the small private road and Isthmus Bay. Out across the bay you can view some of the most breathtaking parts of the Niagara Escarpment. When the sun sets, a bright reddish glow will reflect off of the cliffs on the other side of the bay. You can also witness beautiful sunrises over Georgian Bay from the lake-facing decks. The master bedroom on the lower level has a king size bed with an ensuite three-piece bathroom with a shower. This bedroom has sliding glass doors that take you out to the large deck that was described above. The second bedroom has a double bed, while a third bedroom on this level has two single beds. Each has a window and a dresser. There is a three-piece washroom off of the lower level living area that has a bathtub. On the upper level you will find another living area, one bedroom and one bathroom. There is a double futon couch, and a table conveniently set up for children to craft at or play boardgames. Skylights and big windows make this room a great place to also read a book or watch the boats go by on Georgian Bay. The bedroom on this level is large - closest space runs down one entire wall in this room. This bedroom has a set of bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. Sliding glass doors lead you out to the upper deck for another spectacular view of Georgian Bay. There is a small three piece bathroom here with a shower. Across the small dirt road is one of the prettiest shorelines on the Bruce Peninsula. Miles of cobblestone beach can be walked upon. If you head south up the shoreline you will eventually come to the historical Lion's Head Lighthouse and Marina. It is about a 1.5 km walk by shoreline. If you head north along the shoreline the cobblestone turns to flat limestone rock and you can walk for close to 3 kilometers before coming to the end. Swimming at the cottage is better with swim shoes, as cobble stones lead you into the water and continue out for quite some time. The water gets deep as you go out and makes for great swimming. But if you do choose to head to the beach the Lion's Head Public Beach is a great way to spend the day. This sandy beach has gradual entry into the water with a swim raft. There is also a volleyball net, playground equipment, and a swing set for the children. There are number of unidentified shipwrecks in Lion’s Head Harbour; the most shallow is a 42-metre long schooner that can be easily seen from a kayak. Looking out from the Lion’s Head Beach you can see Point Hangcliffe, the highest section of this section of the escarpment, and farther along, at the end, you can detect the outline of the famous lion’s head. There is excellent deep water fishing for salmon and trout in the area. Lion's Head and this cottage are the perfect match for your next family vacation!

“What a wonderful time we had with our family esp. our three teen”

The cottage is beautiful and the scenery stunning. I can't think of a thing we had to do withthout.
The teenagers canoed, kayaked,swam and played on the bedrock in front of the cottage all day long. At night they did puzzles and we brought our own T.V. and D.V.D player for later at night. They were never bored.
Mom's and Dad's got some much needed rest without any worries. Thanks for sharing your paradise with us.

Loved our time in this lovely well-equipped comfortable cottage. The location was fabulous with gorgeous view of Georgian Bay. Liked being conveniently close to Lions Head as well. Would highly recommend this spot.
