Cottage Profile Two bedroom, 900 square foot waterfront cottage located near Wiarton. This cottage is surrounded by breathtaking scenery with stunning views, from the large 12 by 20 ft deck, of Colpoys Bay and out into Georgian Bay including White Cloud Island and the Niagara Escarpment. There are plenty of large windows in the front of the cottage allowing you to enjoy this gorgeous view even when you're inside. Two comfortable sofas provide plenty of space for everyone in the party to relax, and the woodstove is a nice treat on a cool evening. A television with DVD player are available to help entertain on a rainy day. Another sofa faces out over the water, and is a great place to sit with a good book and enjoy the water view. The kitchen is compact and is equipped with many of the comforts of home including a fridge, stove, and microwave. A table and six chairs are located at one end of this kitchen. There are two bedrooms at the cottage, one with a queen bed and the other with a double. There is also a fold out double bed in the living room for some extra sleeping space. Please note that the walls do not extend to the ceiling in the bedrooms, as these are partial walls. The one bathroom at the cottage is a four piece with a tub/shower, as well as a sink and a flushomatic toilet. Behind the cottage is a nice, grassy yard which is great for small children to play, away from the roadside. Across the road by the water is a fire pit for your family to enjoy in the evening. There is a 500 ft path behind the cottage that leads you directly to the Bruce Trail for a picturesque hike. If you want to try your hand at fishing, you can attempt to catch an elusive salmon from the government dock. There are many little shops in Wiarton with unique locally-crafted items, as well as many studios in the outlying areas with oil paintings, woodwork, stained glass & pottery. You can visit the studio of painter Paul Duff, located on Hwy 6 just north of Wiarton and open during the summer, and see his original works of the Bruce Peninsula. This cottage is just a drive away from many points of interest, including Sauble Beach with it's 7 miles of sandy shore located about 25 km away and Lion's Head with it's public sandy beach located approximately 30 km away. You could also make the drive to Tobermory and explore the harbour and its unique shops, enjoy a bite to eat, or take a boat ride to Flowerpot Island or the ferry to Manitoulin Island. There is much to see and do! .

This cottage is just what the doctor ordered! I was looking for a quiet place with swimming options and peace and quiet. It delivered on all my expectations. Though situated on a road the cottage deck was elevated above the road which became a nice look-out over Colpoys Bay. It was a great place to sit and read or nap. I swam three times a day in the brisk waters of the bay, just as I like it! And my swimsuit dried off in the lovely warm breezes in between swims. In early evening I enjoyed sunsets and -- surprisingly-- could witness sunrises from the same deck! The back yard was relaxing too when I wanted to get out of the sun. Dog walks started there as a path linked it to the Bruce Trail. Just walk the surrounding streets and you might discover a fabulous outdoor model train set-up. The owners will give you a tour! Cottage facilities provided all my basic needs quite happily.

The cottage was everything we needed it to be. My favourite part was the incredible view of Georgian Bay. We had more than enough room and the owners were very helpful, as they were next door. The cottage is a small gem with great curb appeal. We would sooo stay there again. Rent Cottage was easy to work with, friendly & knowledgeable!

This cottage is a great spot to relax. You can read while watching the sailboats on the bay, swim in clear water (wear swim shoes), enjoy a campfire. It is simple enough to feel like you are on vacation but with all the amenities you need for a pleasant stay. Only drawback is there are no doors on the bedrooms (only curtains) and the wall between them is only partial so you will hear your neighbours snore. Comfy reclining couch and big screen TV with VHS/DVD for late evening entertainment. Just a short drive into town for supplies and if your lucky you can buy a fresh caught fish as the fishing boat comes in down at the pier. Great service from the agency.

The cottage itself is quaint, comfotable and clean. The location was perfect located just 5 minutes outside of Wiraton with a rocky but great waterfront area. Colpoys Bay is beautiful with clean, clear water. I would not recommend this cottage for families with small children as there is a fairly bust road between the cottage and the water. I very much enjoyed my stay at this cotaage and would stay there again.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Wiarton was beautiful and we'd definitely go again. The cottage was exactly as it was described on the site and there were no surprises when we arrived. Everything went smoothly when we signed up and everyone that we dealt with was professional and pleasant. We will use RentCottage.com again for sure next year.
