Cottage Profile This 1024 square foot, three bedroom cottage is elevated over Georgian Bay providing a magnificent view of the bluffs of Cape Croker from the upper deck. The cottage is finished in natural woodwork throughout. It has that cozy cottage feel with it's cathedral ceilings and skylights providing an open airy environment. Large floor to ceiling windows provide a panoramic view of Georgian Bay right from the living area. The living area has a couch, two love seats, and two chairs that all surround a nice wood burning fireplace. This is a great place to enjoy a book on cool evenings. Just off of the living area is the fully equipped kitchen. This kitchen has everything you need for preparing your favorite meal. You will find a fridge, stove, and microwave. The wood dining table is adjacent to the kitchen and comfortably seats six for dinner. The dining table also looks out over the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay. Up just three stairs off of the living room you will find three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a separate area for sitting. Bedroom two has a double bed, and bedroom three has two sets of single bunk beds. A four piece bathroom is also located here. The cottage has a large elevated deck that extends the entire length of the building. This deck provides a great spot to soak up some sun, or to cook up some steaks on the BBQ. Here you will find a table and chairs for your outdoor dining experience. Just down a flight of stairs, you will find a second mid level deck area, if you are looking for a place to cool off in the shade, this is it. Relax in one of the muskoka chairs, while taking a break from the afternoon sun. From this deck the lot gradually slopes to the shoreline. There is another lakeside deck here, with some patio furniture. This is a great place to watch the kids play in the water. The shoreline is made up of smooth rocks which makes getting in and out of the water easy. It gets deeper gradually, and swim shoes are recommended. At the shoreline there is a 50 foot dock that extends out into the lake. The water depth at the end of the dock is approximately six feet. The cottage comes with the use of 2 sit on top kayaks and a River Runner R7 kayak. Get up early and explore the crystal clear waters of Georgian Bay. Another nice feature of the property is the lakeside fire pit. Enjoy some warm summer evenings roasting marshmallows with the kids while listening to the waves crash against the shoreline. This cottage is located in a very private setting surrounded by many trees and natural vegetation. There are many activities in the area - the Bruce trail can be accessed easily from the cottage. Swimming, fishing, and hiking are all popular things to do on the Bruce Peninsula.

The cottage at Jackson's Cove was perfect for a restful week of reading, cycling, kayaking and hiking. The bay was quiet for most of the week and only a moderate amount of activity on the July long weekend. Our sons joined us for 3 days and enjoyed the kayaks.

This was our second annual visit to this cottage. We had such a relaxing and enjoyable time. The Bruce is a beautiful and quiet place in the fall and this is the ideal place to take it all in. We plan to be back next year.

We had a very nice time at the cottage. Great location, scenic view from the upper deck. Nice fire pit. Cottage had all the necessities and more. We felt very comfortable. Wood stove was a lot of fun in the evenings. Satellite TV and wireless helped to keep kids busy at times..
Very clean, organised place with a lot of good features:lake with clear water and nice dock, wooded area around the cottage with a lot of privacy, comfortable nicely designed for a family use cottage.
Lot of fun for kids,adults and our dogs enjoyed it too. Thank you!

We enjoyed our time at Jackson's Cove very much. This cottage is very nice and has everything you need for a restful holiday. It was great to arrive to a clean cottage and we were immediately struck by the awesome view over the water. The clean kitchen is well equiped with a brand new fridge.
We loved the wood burning stove and outdoor firepit. Every morning we would have our breakfast
on the large elevated deck and watch the loons in the crystal clear lake.
We would love to return again next year
