Cottage Profile Private, three bedroom 1500 square foot cottage nestled on the Niagara Escarpment in Dunks Bay. Experience the convenience of being minutes away from Tobermory combined with the beauty of Georgian Bay. The main living area of the cottage features laminate flooring, cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows that overlook the water so that you can enjoy the view from the many vantage points. You will also find a television with satellite service and a DVD player to help entertain the family on a rainy day. The woodstove is great for taking the chill off of a cool night. Also in the main living area is a harvest table with plenty of seating for all members of your party. The patio doors leading out to the deck provide diners with a beautiful waterview to compliment the meal. The kitchen has all the essentials, including stove, fridge, and microwave. A propane barbecue provides an attractive second cooking option. There are two bedrooms on the main living area, both with double beds. The four-piece bathroom can also be found on the lower level of the cottage. The master bedroom is located on the second storey of the cottage in the loft. The bedroom itself has a queen bed and two windows to let in natural light. There is also a two-piece ensuite bathroom for your convenience. The bedroom is open to the other end of the loft, which is a great place to curl up and read a book while enjoying views of the water. This is a great spot for some quiet time. The best room of the house is actually outside! The large tiered deck provides a spectacular view of Dunks Bay. Either the dining area or the stairs on the side of the cottage can be used to access the deck. Enjoy the afternoon sun in the 6 patio chairs, or a meal at the picnic table while taking in the fresh air. Entry into the water along the shoreline may prove to be a challenge as it consists of rubble rock (aqua shoes are recommended). An option for younger children or those with mobility issues would be the public sand beach less than a 1 km walk from the cottage. This beach is a great place for children to swim and play and has a beautiful sandy bottom. Please note that you must use the road to access this beach, as the shoreline in front of the cottages is private property. Another highlight of the cottage is its close proximity to Tobermory (2 km to Little Tub harbour). Tobermory provides many activities including boat tours of the Fathom Five National Marine Park and Flowerpot Island, a variety of gift shops, restaurants and pubs, canoe and kayak rentals and the Chi-Cheemaun. It is also worth noting that the Bruce Trail runs right behind the cottage. A wonderful 20 - 30 minute hike on the trail will bring you to the new National Park visitor centre (highly recommended) where there is a 60 foot observation tower that overlooks the many islands within the park.
