Cottage Profile Historic Trails's End Lodge Guest House located on the very tip of the Bruce on Tobermory's spectacular North Point. This cottage is perched on a cliff top on some of the most beautiful shoreline in Ontario. The guest house is a semi detached cottage, it is attached to the living quarters of the caretaker of the lodge. But is two seperate guest houses. Also on the property is Trail's End Lodge, where there will be other tenants accomodating the lodge. These tenants will share the same walkway to access the shoreline below. The cottage has a wall of windows on the lakeside, providing a bright environment with a nice view of the lake. The living area has two comfortable love seats and two chairs. There is also a CD Player here. Adjacent to the living room is the eat in kitchen with wooden table and chairs to sit four. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, stove, oven, and microwave. Two bedrooms are located down a short hallway, both have a double bed, and nice windows. A four piece bathroom is also down this hallway. On the lakeside of the cottage is a large deck, from here you have a panoramice view of Georgian Bay and all of it's many islands. Some muskoka chairs and a picnic table and barbeque are provided for your outside dining pleasure. The deck is for the exclusive use of the renters. A boardwalk talks you out to the shoreline where you can access great swimming, and beautiful sunsets. The water is a deep blue with bright white limestone cliffs and a great view of the outer islands of Fathom Five National under water park. This is truly a spectacular natural place. At the waters edge there are large limestone cliffs some shallow entry areas, the water gets deep fast so this may not be a good place for young children or non swimmers. The shoreline may be difficult for young children or older people to navigate. It would be similar in terrain to that of the Bruce Trail on the upper peninsula. A really nice feature about this property is, that it not only is located in a beutiful natural setting, it is only a a short walk to downtown Tobermory. 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 view shipwrecks, lighthouses and visit Flowerpot Island. Also, dinner cruises aboard the Chi-Cheemaun are very popular. For hikers and naturalists , the area is a dream. A 10 minute drive away, guided tours are available along the Niagara Escarpment, or along the sandy shores of Singing Sands on Lake Huron. Amphitheater programs are available at Cyprus Lake at dusk and are informative and entertaining. This is a truly unique setting for a cottage.

We loved our stay at Trail's End. The cottage is cute, but the views are amazing. The deck by the cottage allows you to watch the Chicheemaun (sp?) go by while you have your dinner or your morning coffee; venture down to the secondary deck to sip some wine and take in the view of Georgian Bay. There is also a boardwalk to the rocky shore of the bay, and this was our favourite. Our kids loved climbing and exploring, and jumping into the waves when the weather allowed.

We were so pleased with our vacation in Tobermory. The ower was very helpful, the cottage was clean and well appointed. The bonus was a fabulous view of the harbor from the kitchen, liveing area and deck. It was private and quiet. We really enjoyed it.
