Cottage Profile Delightful, three bedroom waterfront cottage located on the shores of stunning Isthmus Bay not far from the community of Lion's Head. This cottage makes a great 'basecamp' for your adventurous holiday on the Bruce Peninsula! Enter into the front door of the cottage to find yourself in the entrance hallway, or enter through the side door into the inviting, pine-panelled kitchen. There you will find many of the amenities of home including fridge, stove/oven, dishwasher and more, as well as a bright window over the sink. There is plenty of cupboard space for your food supplies, and a dining table with four chairs is located here too. Out in the living room you'll find a couch and a comfy chair situated by an upright propane stove to keep you toasty on a chilly evening. There is also a 20" TV with satellite to keep you entertained on a rainy day. The focal point of this room is the view through the large, lake-facing windows that allow you to see the brilliant blue water of Isthmus Bay, a part of Georgian Bay. This cottage has three bedrooms, with the first two on the main floor. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and access to a small outer patio with a view of the water. The second bedroom has a double bed. The pine-panelled bathroom, located on the main level, is a four-piece with a combination shower/tub. Up the stairs is an additional bedroom with three single beds. Outside of the living room window is a small outer patio looking out to the water. The shoreline at the cottage is flat limestone with a slight gradual entry before the water gets deeper for great swimming opportunities. Don't hesitate to enjoy this outdoor space, with a morning coffee at the patio table that seats two or curl up in one of the four Mukoka chairs and enjoy a great book. A propane BBQ is also available for your use, so you can cook up the perfect grilled feast. A campfire can be enjoyed under the starry sky, with use of the outdoor fire pit. Centrally located on the Bruce Peninsula, this cottage is just 2 km from access to the Bruce Trail and 40 km to Bruce Peninsula National Park. You can take a drive up to Tobermory for the day and enjoy the harbour's shops and eateries, or take a boat tour out to Flowerpot Island or aboard the Chi Cheemaun ferry to Manitoulin Island. Or stay close by, and enjoy the pretty village of Lion's Head, with it's shops, trails, and public sandy beach!

We were greeted with a warm "hello" from the owner and given directions and advice on local amenities and attractions.
The cottage itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was amazing, right on the water. It was so nice to sit on the rocks and watch the waves come rolling in. The water was so clear and beautiful and the sunrises were amazing.
I would definitely rent this cottage again, it was clean and comfortable.
