Cottage Profile Unique, three bedroom, 1300 square foot cottage located on the shores of Dorcas Bay on Lake Huron. The cottage has been designed like a lighthouse with windows surrounding the house on the main living level. This provides a spectacular panoramic view of Lake Huron. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout with hardwood floors. The living room has a leather couch and loveseat, TV with satellite dish, DVD player and VCR. The view from this room is breathtaking. At the other end of this room is a maple table and six chairs - plenty of room for everyone in your group to enjoy a family meal together. Sliding glass doors lead from the dining area out to a lakeside deck where you will find a patio set and propane BBQ for outdoor dining. The kitchen is just off the dining area and is equipped with oak cupboards, fridge, stove, microwave, espresso coffee maker and more.

The second bathroom at the cottage is a four-piece with both tub and shower. For your convenience full laundry facilities are available at the cottage, as is high speed internet. Outside of the cottage, enjoy the firepit in the evenings as the perfect place to roast marshmallows and enjoy the beauty of the night sky. At the shoreline the flat limestone rock provides gradual entry into the waters of Lake Huron. The cottage is located at the end of a dead-end road . At the end of the road is a large stretch of waterfront land which is part of the Bruce Peninsula National Park. This is a great spot to take long walks in a pristine environment. The scenic Village of Tobermory is only a short distance away (13 km) and this is where you can stroll through the shops in the village, visit the library, restaurants and the beautiful natural harbour, or take a scenic boat cruise where you can view shipwrecks, lighthouses and visit Flowerpot Island. Also, dinner cruises aboard the Chi-Cheemaun ferry are very popular. For hikers, naturalists and scuba divers, the area is a dream.

We spent an amazing week at the House and had a wonderful time it was perfect.The
house was on the water which was even better. Everything was in order when we arrived, and we were pleased to
learn that the pictures online matched the home.
We'd definitely recommend this house for an adult vacation, we actually found had time to relax! We'll be back.
You can bring your own linen or use the ones provided leaving them clean at the end of your stay.
