Cottage Profile Compact, two bedroom, 900 square foot waterfront chalet located on the shores of Larry's Lake, only 13 km from Tobermory and all the activities that it has to offer. The cottage is located on a large lot at the end of Larry's Lake with many cedar trees on the property. You can witness some of the most breathtaking sunsets directly in front of this cottage, or use the canoe to explore the lake. The cottage has older furnishings and in it's compact living area you will find a couch, chair, woodstove, and nice large windows overlooking Larry's Lake. A television with satellite, DVD player and Nintendo provides entertainment for your family on a rainy day. Just off of the living area is a small kitchen that comes equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, and oven. A table is located in the living area so that your family can enjoy a meal together. There are two bedrooms on the upper level of the cottage. The first bedroom has a queen bed with a balcony overlooking the lake, and the second bedroom has a queen and a single bed. The cottage also has a three piece washroom with a shower. At night you can roast marshmallows over the campfire - the fire pit is located on the lakeside of the cottage. There is also a propane BBQ provided for your outdoor dining. While Larry's Lake is a shallow lake and not great for swimming, the waterfront at this cottage has a sandy bottom, which makes for a good place for small children to splash around. The cottage is located in close proximity to Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park, as well as excellent sand beaches and the Bruce Trail. So you are not far from the many opportunities that exist to enjoy this area, as the scenic village of Tobermory is located just 15 km away. Take a trip into town and stroll through the shops in the village, visit the library, restaurants and the beautiful natural harbour. You can also take a scenic boat cruise where you can view shipwrecks, lighthouses and visit Flowerpot Island. Dinner cruises aboard the Chi-Cheemaun are also very popular. Many opportunities for outdoor exploration and enjoyment await!

The Barn was a great place to stay. My kids loved it they played in the shallow lake, fed Stinky Pete(a chipmunk), fed the geese,and enjoyed catching perch and crayfish in the lake. The pictures are exactly what you get very clean and everything you need. Its about 5 mins from singing sands beach which we visited almost daily and about 10 mins to town.

The "Barn" cottage is a cozy and comfortable place to take a family away from the everyday busy life. Everything you need to feel like home is at your arms length. The depths of Larry's Lake is convenient for young kids. The sunsets were beautiful. Tobermory, and Lion's Head were both beautiful towns within a half hour drive. While there you must visit the Gratto and Singing sands beach. The beach was a few minute drive from the cottage. Truly a great vacation spot and can't wait to return.

We have two small children so the location at a small lake with shallow water was ideal for splashing around and canoeing. A canoe is in the shed. There's also a deck next to the dock and a firepit only steps away which we much enjoyed. The cottage is small and a little dark (surrounded by lots of trees) but we were outside all day anyway. For us who like to keep it simple the space and appliances provided were just right. With the kids we much appreciated the washing machine. We did not use all the appliances but what we used worked well. I think the cottage is well looked after by its owners. There were even toys, books, movies etc. available (for the rainy day that we did not get). Location is not far from the National Park where we spent most of our time. Dorcas Bay Road is full of 90-degree-bends but on holidays one is not in a rush, right. Great cottage for those who need little luxury.
“A friendly, comfortable cottage/home in a wonderful locattion.”

It was magic being on the Bruce Peninsula in June (no immediate neighbors were there when we were.) This location is perfect for wildflower enthusiasts and field naturalists. At this time of year, the property is full of yellow lady slippers, and many tiny blooms. A stream rushes through the raised roots of cedars along the property line. Wonderful. Up the road is Singing Sands Park (think showy lady slippers and pitcher plants).
The cottage is comfy and convenient and has everything you could need to feel at home.

The information on this property was right on the money. It was located just far enough from Tobermory that we could still drive in each day and take advantage of all the town had to offer. The cottage was clean and well taken care of. As we were honeymooning we loved the privacy that the cottage had to offer, but if you are interested in meeting other people vacationing near you this is not the property, very secluded. We would go back to this cottage in a heartbeat. They made our first week of marriage very memorable with a wonderful place to stay!
