Cottage Profile One of a kind, two bedroom, 850 square foot waterfront cottage located at the end of a small peninsula of land that juts out into Miller Lake, an inland lake on the Bruce Peninsula not far from Lion's Head. The cottage is surrounded by water, so you have an excellent view of the lake from all locations on the property. The cottage has two large decks, one that allows you to capture some of the most exquisite sunsets over the lake, and one that gets the morning sun. If you want to be right on the water, enjoy the view from the dock. The interior and exterior of the cottage are well maintained. To get to the cottage you have to cross a private causeway, and you can enjoy your privacy while at the cottage as you have no neighbours within site. The cottage is open concept, with views from all of the rooms. It is nicely decorated, with carpet throughout and wood panelling. The living area has large lakeside windows, a comfortable couch and three chairs. A television with satellite and a VCR are also provided, in case of a rainy day. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher so you can enjoy many of the conveniences of home while cooking, and the linoleom flooring makes for easy clean up. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining table that seats four comfortably, and also provides a great view of the lake to enjoy with your meal. The two bedrooms at the cottage each have a double bed and in one of the rooms there is a pull out cot. The one bathroom at the cottage is a three-piece with a tub. A unique feature of this cottage is the outdoor shower - enjoy a true cottage experience, great for rinsing off after a dip in the lake! In the evenings, your family can enjoy a fire in the outdoor firepit - the perfect place for ghost stories and star gazing. On the lakeside deck you will find a picnic table to enjoy your family meals outdoors. This is also a great place to watch the sunsets over Miller Lake or just to sit and watch the canoes and row boats glide by on the water. There is also a 15 foot dock that leads you out to a lakeside deck elevated over the water. This is a good spot to soak up some sun and read a book.

We received awesome service ,the cottage was beautiful inside and outside beautiful scenery beautiful sunsets and sunrises I cant fine enough words to say about this place I will be back next year. The best thing about this place the closeness to nature the peace and the fishing is really good. I thank cottage rentals and the owners of the cottage for the memories.

A lovely place to spend a very relaxing week of holidaying.
Great spot for privacy. Days were filled with biking, hiking, canoeing, reading, sunning, eating, napping and relaxing.
Very clean and efficient cottage.
We are already looking forward to returning in another year.

This cottage is a gem! It's surrounded on three sides by water, providing gorgeous views of sunrises and sunsets over Miller Lake. It was a little hard to find the first time - we thought we were driving into someone's driveway or campsite, but the access road continues past the other properties and ends at the cottage. The chipmunks (there are at least 4) were very friendly, and more than willing to relieve us of any almonds and peanuts we may have had in our pockets. The private dock is perfect for morning coffee and prayers. We couldn't use the fire pit because of the fire ban, but it looked very promising. The sky at night was amazing, and we were treated to a few meteors. We'll definitely keep this cottage in mind for our next visit!
Gorgeous surround Lake view right from Living Room

The best thing about this cottage was it's beautiful location right at the tip of a piece of land, with the lake viewable from both the left and right set of windows from the living room. The cottage is small, but cozy and comfortable, and has a traditional, grandma cottage feel (not all super modern). The 2 bedrooms are small, but with very comfortable beds. There is satellite TV on an older TV (grainy). The kitchen has all kinds of amenities, like pots, water boiler, toasters, coffee makers, waffle iron, etc. (no blender). we didn't find anything lacking. Nice sunsets and sunrises. Close to the Bruce Trail and fantastic hikes. Very cozy and nice views from inside - which is great in case there is bad weather. Cutest very demanding and not shy chipmunk who may wait for you as soon as he hears your car or movement inside the house.

A lovely cottage at the end of a point with beautiful lakeviews on three sides.
You wake up to gorgeous sunrises and end the day watching equally gorgeous
sunsets. The cottage is quaint and rustic but very clean and fully equipped.
The fishing wasn't great but that was due mother nature and our limited
Had a wonderful time and considering a return trip in the near future.

08 was the first time we stayed in this little piece of Heaven, The row boat that came with it was an added bonus. Lots of fish!, Pike, Bass and Perch. It was very relaxing. We loved being on the water. Every window you look out of the cottage you see water.
The decks on both sides of the cottage let you watch the sun come up and the sun go down.
This is truly a wonderful cottage! We will rent it for years to come! The daily visits from our new chipmunk friends were entertaining too!

This was our first time renting over the internet and it proved to be a very safe and easy process. The cottage was perfect and the location was stunning. The cottage was clean and well equipped with large windows to enjoy the scenery anytime of the day or night. We loved the welcome call on our arrival. There was just the right amount of privacy to enjoy swimming or tanning without every eye on the lake seeing you. It is located on a smaller lake which is also quieter. We have and will continue to recommended this location. We will definitely return!!
