Cottage Profile Breathtaking 2,000 sq ft, 4 bedroom cottage located on the Georgian Bay shoreline east of Wiarton and north of Owen Sound. This architecturally-stunning cottage provides you with brilliant views of the waterfront, whether through the plentiful windows of the cottage or while you are seated in the gazebo on the shores of Georgian Bay. The spacious living room, with its high sloped ceiling provides a pleasing space for rest and relaxation indoors. The leather furniture - a couch, loveseat and a chair with foot stool - offers plenty of seating space in-front of the large wood-burning fireplace. For your entertainment there is a TV with a DVD player, while the key feature of this room is the floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a view out to the sparkling water of Georgian Bay. The well-equipped kitchen is a bright and efficient place for your meal preparation, complete with fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher and more. Enjoy the window over the sink that lets in plenty of natural light and offers you a great view out to the bay. The breakfast bar with its two stools is located by the French doors that take you out to the front deck. The formal dining area is located just adjacent to the kitchen and has a table with six chairs situated by large windows looking out to the deck. There are four bedrooms at this cottage and two bathrooms. Each bedroom has a bright window while the master bedroom has a stunning view of the bay and an ensuite three-piece bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The other bathroom are each a three-piece with a shower - one is located on the main level while the other is located upstairs alongside the bedrooms. For your convenience there is a washer and dryer available for use. The cottage has a great elevated front deck that looks out to the water and is the perfect spot to enjoy your meal outdoors, cooked up on the propane BBQ. Down by the shoreline there is a gazebo and chairs for you to sit right by the water and take in an early morning sunrise, or watch the kids cool off in the water. The shoreline is made up of rocky rubble so swim shoes are recommended. Georgian Bay deepens quickly, providing great swimming opportunities. For dining out and shopping opportunities, as well as a variety of entertainment, the communities of Wiarton and Owen Sound are both a 30 minute drive away (approximately). Enjoy this slice of paradise on the shores of Georgian Bay!

The colors in the landscape are breath taking. The view from the beach on to the bay, the islands and the view of other side of owen sound bay, with the color changes made it very relaxing. The cottage itself is well maintained, clean and very comfortable. Its more like a house than a cottage with many upgrades. We had a couple of small issues and there person on call responded immediately. We found the home was big enough to escape for privacy and to accommodate our size family. We enjoyed it very much and would stay there again.

Very nice place with a view to die for. It had all the accommodations like home.
Beautiful view from living room and master bedroom. I enjoyed the fact there were two rooms with complete sofa it gave an area to get away. We enjoyed the fire pit my kids enjoyed the evening bomb fires. Would definitely stay there again.

Great place and view. Had everything we needed would stay there again!
Had small problem and the owner and handy man took care of it immediately.
The location is breathe taking and the home fits the setting perfectly.

the photos would lead you to believe that you will be staying in a well appointed cottage. Not the case! Everything has been done on the cheap. No central a/C upstairs. Just a nasty old window a/c in the Master Bedroom. No airflow for the other rooms upstairs, so bad luck if you wanted to use them. The Tub in the Master suite is old & nasty. Use the shower downstairs instead. The washer/dryer are in such bad shape- rusty, hard to wash your clothing without getting tons of rusty metal in with it. We rent cottages & cabins all over the USa & Canada & this is the first time we had to turn on the breakers,start up the fridge etc. From warm, it takes quite a while for a fridge to get cool, so don't plan on using it for an hour after you get there & turn it on. The whole place needs a thorough cleaning, as it would appear that it has not been cleaned for years. I spent the first afternoon & evening(4:30pm to 11pm) cleaning. We are not picky- We are hikers,we camp & sleep on the ground on occasion.
Thank you for your comments, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your vacation as much as others have. The cottage does have a forced heating system which does allow Air Conditioning to run throughout the cottage, there is an additional window unit in the master bedroom to make your sleep more comfortable. We apologize if you had troubles using it.
We inspected the tub and laundry facilities and didn't come across any problems with either of them.
The cottage owner has decided to leave everything running in the cottage in between rentals now, we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. There will no longer be a wait time for the fridge to get cool.
