Great location
94% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Water view, two level cottage located on Hay Bay, off the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, on a quiet road. Enjoy the peaceful location as well as the convenience of being just 3 km from the Village of Tobermory.

The space
The main living area has a large sectional couch for your group to relax in after a busy day exploring the area. A television with a DVD/VCR player provides distraction on a rainy day. The patio door and large window in this room let in lots of natural light and allows you to access the large lakeside deck.

Besides a great view of the water, this deck provides a barbeque grill, patio table, six (6) chairs and an umbrella.

On the main floor you will find the kitchen fully equipped with all the comforts of home including refrigerator with top freezer, stove and microwave and newly installed dishwasher as of 2020. There is plenty of counter and cupboard space to make food prep more convenient.

A dining nook with a table and seating for six (6) is located just off the living room. Large windows helps to make this space a nice bright place to enjoy a meal as a family.

The main floor also includes a bedroom containing two single beds (great for grandma and grandpa or kids) as well as a four-piece bathroom and a washing machine.

On the second floor, there is the master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and terrace doors which lead out to a second-storey balcony. From there, one can enjoy an excellent view of the lake.

The second floor also includes a third bedroom which contains two (2) double beds. There is a two-piece bathroom on this floor as well.

The cottage is located in a private setting with a southern exposure, about 300 metres back from the water. The shoreline is a mixture of flat rock and honeycomb stones. The water depth is shallow at entry and gradually becomes deeper.

In the Village of Tobermory, which is only a short distance away, you can stroll through the shops, visit the library, restaurants, local brewery and the beautiful natural harbour, or take a scenic glass-bottom boat cruise (reservations recommended) to view shipwrecks, lighthouses, visit Flowerpot Island and the Grotto, all proudly located within Bruce Peninsula & Fathom Five National Marine Parks. For hikers, naturalists and scuba divers, the area is a dream come true.

Dinner cruises aboard the MS Chi-Cheemaun Ferry are also available and are very popular (reservations recommended).

Where you’ll be

Tobermory, Ontario, Canada

Tobermory is a special place to visit. The natural beauty, the friendly, small town charm, the rich history, the protected National Park lands and water, I could go on and on...

I am absolutely in love with Tobermory and my goal is for my guests to experience the same respect and appreciation of this beautiful place that I proudly call "home".
