Cottage Profile The perfect place to enjoy a beautiful shoreline and the wonders of the Bruce Peninsula is this 1600 square foot cottage located just outside Wiarton on Colpoy's Bay. The large grassy yard between the cottage and the shoreline is a great place for children to play, or to sit in the sun and relax with a good book and a great view. If you prefer to be inside there is an enclosed sunroom facing out towards the yard and shore, complete with couches to keep you cozy. Great sunsets can be seen against the beautiful water and there is gradual entry into the water. A large wraparound deck ensures that you'll always be able to find a spot with a view. There is a large 30-foot dock at the cottage, which includes seating and a table to enjoy a nice summer evening meal right at the shore. A gas barbeque is available for cooking up some BBQ feasts, and two Muskoka chairs provide an opportunity for lounging. There is also a fire pit right at the shoreline for those marshmallow-roasting evenings. Inside the cottage you'll find modern furnishings and amenities. The spacious kitchen is complete with all the needed appliances including a stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher. There are two eating areas on opposite ends of the kitchen, so you can choose to be closer to the living room area or just off of the sunroom. The main living room has couches and a television with satellite, and is just off of the main cottage entrance. Another living area is provided in the downstairs, which offers more couches and a flat-screen television. There are four bedrooms in this cottage, the first with a king size bed, the second with a queen size while the third and fourth bedrooms each have a double bed. Additionally there are two bathrooms, a 4-piece that is the ensuite to the master bedroom, complete with a double sink and then one 3-piece with a shower. There are also a washer and dryer available for use for your convenience. The cottage is located close to many points of interest. Wiarton is only 3 km away with its many stores, restaurants and recreational facilities. Access to the Bruce Trail is only a five minute drive away and Sauble Beach is located 26 km away.

The cottage is in need of some TLC. It is fairly clean but the smell of dog's and dog hairs was a cause of concern as one of our party had an allergy to this. The facilities where fine and the views over the lake are fantastic. A basic holiday let that is functional. If travelling from abroad you will need to ask for bed linen and towels at extra cost. Be warned you have to make the beds yourself as the bed linen is left in a box for you to sort out what goes where.

A very nice cottage on a beautiful piece of property. The dock was our favorite meeting place. We enjoyed swimming and floating off of it. We had several lovely nights around the fire pit. We were pleased to find the bar b q was hooked to natural gas! No worrying about propane tanks. The kitchen was very functional as was the dining table. Good size of all bedrooms except #3 on the first floor which is tiny. Good one for wee ones but not adults. The master in the basement is large and has a very nice bathroom. The only down side was imcessant gnats in this bathroom and a pervasive musty smell which we had trouble clearing. The problem actually seems to be with furniture in the basement. There are 2 large couches which are very moldy smelling and probably should be trashed. On the positive side there was a beautiful large TV with satellite and DVD player down there which we loved. The cottage is very conveniently located only 4 km from Wiarton. We loved the town and it was easy to go for a morning run to the local Tim's. Overall we were very happy and plan to return.

We would absolutely recommend this cottage to other families. The cottage is so nice and comfortable. It was very clean and we were amazed at how spacious it is. Same with the property, lots of room to run and play badminton and a game of pick up baseball. We spent a lot of time down by the deck and in the water. At night we enjoyed having campfires by the waters edge. Thanks for a wonderful family vacation. We'd come back for sure
