“Perfect location”
Reviewed May 23, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The location is very close to Bruce Peninsula National Park and Tobermory. The sunset view from the deck is great. Also, the night sky is amazing, there are so many stars visible. The cottage was ready when we arrived, pots, plates and cups are available. The bedding are clean. The dock with peddle boat and kayak are ready, but it was too cold to use. Nancy is very responsive with communication and check in instructions are very clear. We really enjoyed our stay.

We enjoyed our stay its suitable for kids and there was always something to do for the family. The back deck was great for our family and the sunsets are beautiful.

We had a great time staying here. The separate basement was great for the teenagers that were with us. The air conditioned bedrooms were great. Loved having towels and bedding supplied. The washer and dryer were a nice bonus . The sunsets were absolutely amazing. The location is fantastic. Very close to Singing Sands beach and the Grotto. A 15 minute drive puts you in Tobermory. All in all a nice place to stay at a great price.

“Absolutely terrific - No people - Very Private - Well-appointed House.”

Had a great time. Near to everything but far enough that loud noises , sirens, yabbering do not encroach. Yet - connected via mobile phone & internet (on our terms).

There is everything one would expect if one had their own year-around cottage. The listing is 100% accurate.

Tip? Well if you are arriving from the South using a GPS wait til you reach the Dorcus Bay Road cut-off.

Amazing place to stay. In the center of everything. Many activities for all ages in the cottage itself. Very roomy for 4 adults and 4 kids. This is our second year!! Will definitely visit again.

This was our first time renting a cottage as a family, and we couldn't have asked for anything better! The owners were a pleasure to work with. The cabin itself was packed to the rafters with thoughtfully added activities and home comforts. There are bikes for almost all sizes, adult and children's kayaks, a peddle boat, bow and arrows, DVDs and board games to enjoy. In the kitchen we found once again that our expectations were surpassed! There was every kitchen utensil and large/small appliance that you could possibly need. The cabin itself and the surrounding grounds were incredibly clean. All in all we would heartily recommend this place to anyone and we hope to return again! :)
