Cottage Profile Comfortable, waterfront three-bedroom cottage located on the shores of Warner Bay on Lake Huron.

This cottage has natural pine woodwork throughout with hardwood floors in the living room and kitchen areas. The living room has a couch and reclining seats and a large window facing the lake. Adjacent to the living room is the dining area with a table and chairs suitable to sit six comfortably. Beside the dining area is a galley kitchen with fridge, stove and microwave oven. The cottage has three bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with a double bed and one with a set of single bunkbeds. There is also a three-piece bathroom with a shower. A nice feature of this cottage is the large screened-in porch, with table, chairs and nice view of the lake. A lake side deck has recently been added. The cottage is located on Warner Bay, one of the nicer bays on Lake Huron, and has a flat rock sheltered shoreline and good swimming. Here there is also a fire pit for you to enjoy, with firewood provided. At the rear of the cottage is a large grassy area with lots of room for the kids to play. The cottage is well set-back from the road and is in a private setting, as it is located near the end of a quiet, paved dead end road with light traffic. The scenic Village of Tobermory is located 13 km away. Take a visit and 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 are very popular. For hikers, naturalists and scuba divers, the area is a dream.

Just home from a great week at Loons Calling cottage. We can't say enough about how perfect this cottage was for our family. It was very clean, comfortable and has everything necessary for a relaxing and worry free stay.
We did some day trips but mostly found that we wanted to be back at the cottage enjoying our time together and the view of Warner Bay which is quiet and serene.
The swimming is excellent so long as you're prepared with water-shoes and for the refreshing temperature. The water is clean and clear.
We can honestly report that we had no disappointments with this quaint and homey cottage. It is exactly what you would expect from the description. Hope to go again!

Loons Calling cottage is located on a very peaceful and quiet bay. A beautiful sunset was enjoyed each evening. The cottage was very well equipped and ready for us to enjoy. We had a good time on our day trips to Tobermory and Singing Sands beach (a great dog friendly beach!). All in all, a super start to our retirement! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and RentCottage.com to our family and friends.

our stay at 229 last summer was ideal. the cottage is lovely, old, simple,but clean, neat, well-organized, with great swimming and everything you need for a peaceful getaway. The only reason we didn't rent it this year was that we have six people coming up, and the cottage can't accommodate that many adults. Please be assured that if we'd had more vacation time/money and fewer people, we'd be renting 229 again, and hope to do so next year, if it's available.

We had an amazing time at Loons' Calling. The cottage is small, but more than sufficient if you're going to be outside most of the time. The shoreline is rocky, but we had no trouble swimming with our daughters (4 and 2). The rocky shore also provided plenty to explore. The neighbours are extremely friendly and contributed to an amazing experience.
My oldest daughter has insisted we return next year. That's as good a testimonial as you can get.

Great cottage with amazing stargazing capabilities but the fog/weather issues we had made it hit or miss...not a factor anyone can control. The zero gravity chairs were stellar for that purpose alone. Cottage itself very clean, comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. Slightly further from town than expected but not so far you couldn't drive it a couple times a day. Waterfront weedy with slippery rocks; kids wouldn't go near it; water shoes a must unless you don't mind risking a nasty fall. Great fire pit.

While the area and the view to the Lake was enjoyable and the situation was excellent the ambience of the area was ruined by the building of a 'monster home'adjacent to this property.
The water pump in the laundry area was extremely noisy and it was impossible to sleep because of it. The only solution was to shut it off overnight with the result that there was no water until the machine was restarted each morning.
Although the furnishings and appliances were good,during our stay we were subjected to a plague of flying ants inside the cottage and it was a major chore cleaning them up each day.
Having stayed at several cottages in this area over the years we do not expect lawns and shrubberies to be manicured (would be disappointed if they were), however, this cottage's surrounds were unkempt and bore very little resemblance to the pictures on the web site. Perhaps the owner was too busy with the monster home to pay too much attention to the cottage!
We are sorry that the cottage was not to your liking, we take all comments seriously.
We have relocated the pump to the exterior of the cottage so it will not disturb guests at night. The new cottage next door (1500 square feet) is now complete. The cottage is located on the Bruce Peninsula in a natural setting. We do maintain the grass around the cottage, beyond that the grounds are left in a natural state.
