“Beautiful House, glowing blue lake, rough rocky shore.”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I would rate the house a 5, the water a 5, and the waterfront a 3 or 3.5. The house was clean, open, simply-but-nicely decorated, and well appointed with a pretty view of Lake Huron. Lake Huron was glowing blue - we had much fun as a family playing in very large waves on a windy day and relaxing on another calm day. The shoreline, as could be seen from pictures online, was very rocky, with stones large enough to be difficult to walk on, but small enough to roll around under your feet (making it even more difficult to walk on). Thus, I would not recommend the house to a family with small children; however, my older children were fine with it and enjoyed the water, as did I.

One of the pictures online showed a sunset. This was misleading. The house faces the south, but is near the end of the peninsula. The only way to see a sunset is to walk out several hundred feet into the water so that you can see it beyond the end of the peninsula. This is not advised because walking back over the rocks in shallow water after the sunset (in dark or dim light) is pretty dangerous.

The location is good, less than 1/2 an hour from Tobermory and most of the National Park sites, and less than an hour from Sauble Beach. There are neighbors, but they are far enough away and behind trees that you feel like you are all alone on Lake Huron. Overall, everyone in our family truly enjoyed this trip. We hiked, kayaked, climbed around the grotto, snorkeled, and enjoyed a relaxing time in the very welcoming and beautiful home. No regrets!
