Cottage Profile This spectacular timber-frame cottage is located on a large private lot on the shores of Hay Bay. It overlooks Devil's Straits between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. The centrepiece of this cottage is the magnificent floor-to-ceiling open fireplace, hand-crafted using the unique stone of the area. This fireplace is surrounded by a 32-foot vaulted ceiling and supported by large squared timber post-and-beam construction. The large floor-to-ceiling windows and natural pine flooring only add to a bright, spectacular and natural living environment. The main living area is organized around an open concept design containing the living room, dining room and kitchen. The living room is tastefully furnished with collectibles and antiques. Furnishings include a large, comfortable leather couch, a uniquely carved Indonesian day bed as well as the window seating that surrounds the massive Rumford fireplace. Adjacent to the seating area is a built-in pine desk with telephone and full satellite wireless Internet connection. A superb audio system, complete with an iPod docking station, in addition to the CD player is available for your listening pleasure. The dining room contains a square Australian jarrah wood captain's table with highback chairs that seat eight. Next to the dining area is a beautifully-appointed kitchen with all the amenities of home. This kitchen includes plenty of cupboard and counter space with modern appliances (fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher). The kitchen is very well equipped catering to all of your culinary needs and contains a breakfast bar with three high-back chairs. Sliding glass doors lead from the dining area onto a large wrap-around deck with teak patio table and chairs as well as lounge chairs. This is an excellent spot to enjoy the incredible water views and sunsets. Step down to the lower deck with a new 7 person spa/ hot tub - perfect for soaking after a long day kayaking the bay or hiking the Bruce Trail! No matter where you sit, you are surrounded by the sights and soothing sounds of lapping water from the bay. The remaining rooms on the ground floor are: a modern three-piece bathroom with shower, full laundry facilities and a beautiful, bright bedroom with a queen-sized bed. An open staircase leads from the lower level to the second storey of the cottage. At the top of the stairs is a cozy sitting / sleeping area with armchair and double bed. This is also where the satellite HDTV with DVD and VCR are located. On the second floor, there is an amazing 20-by-30 foot open loft master suite, which contains a luxurious Jacuzzi tub, shower, sitting area and four-post teak king-sized bed, as well as a private deck with an exquisite view of the lake. The master bedroom also contains a separate washroom and walk-in closet. The second upstairs bedroom has two pine twin beds and a large closet filled with games - perfect for children. A 600 foot driveway winds down from the main road to the cottage. The cottage is located on a private five acre forest consisting of mature cedar, birch, spruce and tamarack trees. There is a large grassy area at the rear of the cottage where the kids can play. The cottage rates a 'five out of five' on our privacy rating. A short trail leads from the cottage down to 500 feet of natural undisturbed shoreline, which is bordered by a nature reserve and contains many small bays and inlets. This is a great area to explore by water. A canoe, two kayaks and snorkelling equipment are provided with the cottage rental. The area is also renowned for excellent fishing. Swimming opportunities exist left down the shoreline about 150 ft. or right to the end of the point. Due to lower water levels on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, you may wish to explore more ideal swimming opportunities accessible from this cottage - swimming can be enjoyed in the deeper waters off the numerous islands in Hay Bay (easily accessible by kayak or canoe). While enjoying this deep water swimming you can enjoy snorkelling! The shoreline in this area consists of flat rock with some stones. Swim shoes are recommended. The cottage is located at the end of a paved road a short bike ride away (4 km) from Tobermory. Take advantage of the four mountain bikes included in your rental at the cottage. You could even bike to the beach at the base of Hay Bay and enjoying more swimming opportunites there. In the village of Tobermory, you can stroll through the shopping area, visit the library, restaurants and beautiful natural harbour, or take a scenic boat cruise to view shipwrecks, lighthouses and visit Flowerpot Island. Dinner cruises aboard the Chi-Cheemaun are also very popular. For hikers, naturalists and scuba divers, the area is a dream come true. This is truly a magnificent cottage!
