“Great Place!”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2017

The place was super spacious and there was lots to do at the cottage and around. Its close to Bruce Peninsula as well as Tobermory - about a 15 minute drive. Finding the cottage was really easy and Nancy was helpful in setting it up for us. We were a big group and the space was not tight at all. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have a chance!

“Great location, great amenities and a picture perfect waterfront view”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2014

We just came back from a 3 day stay with my friends from high school. We had an amazing time in the cottage. We loved the kitchen that was completed with everything you possibly needed, including many choices of spices. We spent a lot of time splashing water in the dock where the water was amazingly clear. When we got tired, we laid on the sofa in the living room, enjoyed the movies and looking out to a great view of the backyard through a large window. The bikes were in excellent condition, we did a little tour of the area on bikes in th morning. Just one recommendation, bring lots of mosquito repellent. we tried to enjoy the backyard at nights, but we were pushed back by the little bugs, which is natural in a cottage so blended in with nature. We had a perfect stay, we would recommend this cottage to anyone who is planning for a stay in Tobermory!!!

“Nice Place to stay”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2013

Ethan's Escape is a wonderful place if you are searching for silence, recreation and restful hours. The location of the cottage is quite perfect, calm but not too far away from "civilization", "private lagoon" and therefore no stormy waterfront, nearby to some really nice places like singing sands, etc.. The weather gave us the chance to use nearly all of the features the cottage has, from outdoor deck, paddle boat and fire pit up to the cozy couch, the indoor grill at the stove and the chimney. Perfect for families (kid friendly), wide areal, lots of things to do. Perfect communication and processing - to be recommended!

“Amazing and Relaxing Stay”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

Our stay at Ethan's escape was exceptional. Travelling with small children, youth and adults including seniors, we appreciated all of the comforts and amenities of home in a peaceful, relaxing, safe environment. The cottage was well equipped and stocked with basic necessities, linens, and a fully functioning kitchen. The property was private, spacious (can easily accommodate additional people) and immaculate, the views, breathtaking, and area attractions were plentiful. We really enjoyed morning coffee on the enormous deck, BBQ in the evening time, and watching the sunset and later the campfire fun time. We were very pleased to find many activities in the area suitable for all ages. Flower pot island was only 10 mins away which will also give you a unique experience We truly enjoyed this home-away-from-home, and look forward to returning again.

“Great stay! They have thought of everything to make our stay mor”

Reviewed 23 May 2013

We rented the cottage between May 10th and May 12th. The weather wasn't the greatest, it was cold and rainy. So we did end up spending a lot of time indoors. Which was still a memorable experience. You truly do feel at home with this cottage. It has everything that you need to just get away from it all. We were very impressed with what the cottage had to offer, no details were missed.

“Homey cottage”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

The cottage is in a great place, for traveling the north Bruce peninsula. It is spacious and had great amenities: bikes, peddle boat, board games, outdoor games, the kids didn't know what to do first. The owners are very nice and helpful. The cottage feels like it is being lived in, more like going to a friends' cottage then a hotel. It was strange at first but then we just felt at home.

“Relaxing cottage up north”

Reviewed 8 May 2013

What a great place to base camp for time on the Bruce. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was spectacular. Watching the sunset and slow but steady rising of the frog symphony is intoxicating. I guess if you don't like falling asleep to insistent frog calls, then you might not enjoy it. But overall, a great place to lay your head for a few nights. Only downside we encountered was distance to Tobermory (about 15 km) but that is to be expected and really wasn't a burden. The cottage does feel lived in, so don't expect an immaculate hotel-type experience. It is more like going to a friend's cottage than a home that is only used for summer rentals.

“Great place to go with friends or family.”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2013

We had a great cottage experience at Ethan's Escape. The cottage itself has a lot of room and is very cozy. The location is close to all the major attractions. I would definitely go back there again.

“Had a great time there!”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2012

We a a wonderful time there at Ethan's Escape. The location is superb...close to singing sands beach, which was awesome. All the amenities that were listed on were there. I would recommend it for anyone who has kids because the lake at the back isn't very deep which makes it safe for the kids. We would love to go back there next summer!
