Cottage Profile Custom-built, 1800 sq ft, 2 bedroom waterfront cottage located just 2 km from Tobermory on China Cove on the shores of beautiful Lake Huron. This three-level, stone timberframe cottage has maple hardwood floors throughout, and pine baseboards and window frames. There is also a multi-level deck that surrounds the cottage, giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the fresh air! Inside the cottage you'll find an open concept kitchen and living area. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is complete with a dishwasher and all the conveniences of home. Ample counter space and the open feeling of the space will ease meal preparation. While the 'cook' is in the kitchen, guests can sit at any of the three stools at the breakfast bar and enjoy a coffee and a chat. The dining table is situated by large, bright windows and will seat four while the adjacent living room space offers two leather loveseats that look out a large window. A ceiling fan overhead can help keep the air circulating. (Please note, the fireplace at the cottage is not for renters' use). On this main level of the cottage there is a four-piece bathroom with a double shower as well as a jacuzzi tub. Treat yourself! And for your convenience, a washer and dryer are available as well. Up the stairs to the second level of the cottage you'll find both of the bedrooms. The master bedroom offers a queen bed, while the second bedroom has a set of bunkbeds with a single over a double. On this level there is also a three-piece bathroom with a shower. In addition to the formal bedrooms, there are also two sleeping alcoves, one on the lower level and one on the second level. There is a double bed in the downstairs alcove, while the upstairs alcove has a couch that pulls out into a double. Another set of stairs will lead you up to the small third level of the cottage - watch out, these stairs are steep! On this level you'll find a small nook with a single padded chair, a 36" TV with satellite and a DVD player. This is the perfect spot to escape with a book or to getaway and sneak-in some television time for you. The outside of the cottage has plenty to offer as well! A propane BBQ is available for you to cook up a feast, and you can sit outside and enjoy your meal at the patio table, complete with umbrella and six chairs. There are also two picnic tables so you can pick where you'd like to sit. After a great day of enjoying the sights of the Bruce Peninsula, you can sit around a campfire under the stars, with the use of the fire pit. A hot tub is also available to release your tension, after a day of kayaking with the use of the two sit-on-top kayaks. Down by the shore is the lakeside deck which has built in seats. This is the perfect spot to take in a magnificent sunset and enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Huron, including views of Devil's Island, Russell Island and Cove Island. The shoreline is a mix of flat rock and rubble, and entry into the water is shallow before gradually getting deeper. The cottage is located 2 km from the village of Tobermory where you can enjoy shopping along the harbourfront, eating out, and taking boat tours of Fathom Five National Marine Park. You also won't be far from Bruce Peninsula National Park for outdoor exploration, as well as just a quick drive to the sandy shores of Singing Sand Beach!

"One of the most enjoyable cottage experiences for me - luxury an"

Beautiful spacious cottage surrounded by evergreens. Kitchen and bathrooms very modern. Lovely large deck and hot tub has lake views. Very private and quiet and yet conveniently located within walking distance (or 5 min drive) to Tobermory. Also short drive to Bruce trail or sand beaches. Waterfront is flat rock and relatively easy entry for swimming or kayaking. Lots of things to see within short kayak - islands, shipwrecks. Great waterside deck for sunbathing & stargazing or watching sunsets.
Loved the open concept look on the mainfloor but not so much on the upper floors because of noise and lack of privacy. This meant after the kids went to bed we had to be quiet. Also, the bedroom walls did not reach the ceiling, posing a safety issue for a young child sleeping on the top bunk. Another problem was the the front door latch which we were not successful in opening after the first day, so had to use the back door but assume this will be fixed.

Beautiful, new, clean, lots of wood and all modern appliances and comforts. Love having a hot tub. Beautiful sunsets. Almost no lake view from house or deck due to trees - a little trimming would be great. Lots of nice tree views though. Lots of privacy. Didn't want to leave. Recommended.
