Cottage Profile This large three bedroom cottage is located 100 metres from a public water access on beautiful Miller Lake. This cottage is situated on a large corner lot, surrounded by a nice large lawn. The cottage also has a front deck with nice patio furniture. The interior of the cottage is bright, airy, and tastefully decorated. It is a two storey home with two bedrooms on the main living area and the master bedroom upstairs. In the eat in kitchen you will find a dishwasher, microwave, fridge,oven, and stove. Also an island is located in the center of the room for more counter space. The dining area has large windows overlooking the front lawn, and seats four comfortably. Adjacent to the eat in kitchen is a sitting room where you will find a couch and two chairs and patio doors leading out to the newly renovated deck complete with a patio set for your outdoor dining pleasure. Also on the main floor is the comfortable living room, here you will find a couch, and three lazy boys chairs and a television and VCR, for those rainy days at the cottage. There are two bedrooms on the main floor, one has a double bed, and the other with two singles. You will also find a four piece bath, a three piece bath, and laundry facilities on the main floor. At the top of the stairs you find the large master bedroom with a queen size bed, ensuite three piece bath (shower), and a walk-in closet. There is also a rather large window here that makes the room bright and refreshing. Miller Lake is a large, clean, fresh water lake located at the centre of the Bruce Peninsula. The lake has excellent fishing for bass, perch, pike and pickerel. Boat rentals are available. For swimming we recommend going to Summer House Park and getting a day pass to use the sand beach. Just follow the road to the east end of the lake. Other swimming areas would be Lions's Head beach or Singing Sands near Tobermory. The lake is also located close to many attractions on the Bruce. Excellent hiking on the Bruce Trail is only 5 minutes away. Nationally renowned Lark Whistle Gardens is also close by. . The road in front of the cottage is paved and is great for cycling. Tobermory and Lion's Head are only a 20 minute drive away. .

We enjoyed staying at the Miller Lake cottage. It is well maintained, clean with a lot of space for 5-6 people. We tried fishing and my son was lucky to catch the large mouth bass on the very first day! It is conveniently located ? 15 minutes drive to Lions Head beach (we liked it a lot!!! But the water was very cold); 20 minutes drive to Tobermory. We went to Cabot Head Lighthouse museum ~40 minutes drive (because of unpaved road) and liked the view from the road and the museum itself.
Overall it was a great experience.
But here are some things to know about the cottage : even though the house has 3 showers, you can use only 1 at a time. The water pressure for the second one will be very low.
Another problem was with the opening the windows. We managed to open only 2 windows in the house (in the upper bedroom and one bedroom on the first floor). The weather was not so hot, so it was OK, but for the hotter days it could be a problem.
If you want to use the beach in Summer House park (only 3 km away) , be prepared to pay ~30$ for 4 people for a day pass and share beautiful, but very-very small sandy beach with a lot of other people and spend a day in the noisy environment.

The home was basically okay but overpriced for the condition of some areas. Particularly the upstairs bedroom and ensuite. Wallpaper was hanging off the walls in some areas and we had to duct tape the shower head on the hose so it wouldn't fly around the shower. Probably would not rent this property again.
