Recently returned from a weeks vacation at Dogwood Point Cottage, it was a wonderful vacation. The home was open and spacious for our family of 7 to stretch out in. I absolutely loved the master bedroom suite, especially the view from the large windows and easy access to the huge deck...great place for that quiet moment to enjoy a cup of tea each morning or relax in the evening. I brought kids ranging from 7yrs old to 20...and there was something for every age group to enjoy...they loved the games room and the kayaks..the water in front of the cottage was shallow entry so perfect for even the youngest to play in without worry. Great firepit right by the lake was enjoyed by us all...lots of smores :)
The cottage is very private, which I enjoyed...yet it was only a 10 min drive into Tobermory if we wanted to browse the shops, just a few minutes from a warm sandy beach (Singing Sands) and only a 10 min drive to get to the many trails to hike. Would definitely rent this cottage again !

Very good cottage, can't expect more. Had great experience with it, nice and comfortable. The view is fantastic, and the water is so clean. The little sheltered bay is great for children to try on kayaking. Wonderful place to enjoy the nature while not far from all the convenience you may need.

This was our 2nd time staying at this cottage. It is spacious , comfortable and private and perfect for families with older kids, teens who need " space " . The water is the biggest draw- for swimming kayaking and wave watching. The location (close to Tobermory town for getting supplies and to assess to the Georgian Bay side of the pennisula ) is excellent as well

We enjoyed our holidays at Dogwood Point. The house is very spacious. The down sides are the humide basement, and the long way to the next sandy beach. However, if one does not have small children and does not mind to have some waves while swimming, there is nothing to complain about the stony beach just in front of the cottage.

We had a fabulous time at the "Dogwood Point Cottage". The scenery/environment was spectacular and the cottage (home) could not have been any nicer. The home and grounds were very clean and the proximity to the water was truly special. We have recommended to our family and friends and will undoubtedly stay there again in the future. Thanks for a wonderful, memory filled vacation.

We had excellent service.All the comforts of home and more.We liked the home very much. It was very private but a better view of the lake would have been appreciated, maybe cut off a few of the trees.We liked the town of tobermory. The least of things we didn't like is the available lakes to fish in.

The whole area of Tobermory is lovely, but staying in such a great cottage made it even better. Had a super weather week, and an overall tremendous, relaxing time of things. You have no worries when you rent this cottage.

We enjoyed our week at this cottage with our 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. The children enjoyed playing by the water, climbing on the rocks, playing on the deck, dressing up in the dress-up clothes, and keeping a close eye on the frog pond. The shore is very rocky so it is not easy to wade in even with beach shoes. Singing Sands is not too far away and we enjoyed beach time there. The cottage is well equipped, spacious and comfortable with 2 decks for enjoying the view of Lake Huron.
