Cottage Profile Nestled between the escarpment and the cobble beach of Dyer's Bay, this 1200 sq ft 'gingerbread' cottage is built in the old-Ontario farmhouse style. Beautifully decorated, this 2-bedroom home is the perfect setting for your holiday, set against the pristine waters of Georgian Bay. Inside the cottage you will find a bright, inviting kitchen, dining area, and living room with hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, gas stove/oven, ample cupboard space and a bright window over the sink. The breakfast bar with four bar-style chairs is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee. Just adjacent to this is the dining area and living room, which are afforded great views by the large windows and windowed French doors that look direct out into Dyer's Bay. Enjoy a sit-down meal at the dining table, with enough seats for all in your party and watch the waves. Or take a seat on the couch or two comfy chairs to take in the view, or watch a show or movie on the TV - with satellite and built-in DVD player. The gas fireplace in this space will warm you on a cool summer evening while an area rug adds charm. There are two bedrooms at this cottage, each with an ensuite bathroom. The master bedroom offers a queen bed and a four-piece ensuite bathroom complete with a massage tub. Early sunrises provide a gorgeous view from the master bedroom which also has French doors entering onto the large waterfront deck. The second bedroom has a double bed as well as a single, and its own two-piece ensuite bathroom. A washer and dryer provide you with full laundry facilities, for your convenience. Outside on the deck you can enjoy the compelling 180 degree waterview from Cabot Head to Cape Chin. Predominant southwest winds blow offshore most of the summer months providing you with a comforting breeze. Relax on a lounger with a good book and catch some sun or take a nap. There is also a propane BBQ so you can cook up a tasty feast. The shoreline consists of a pebble beach with excellent swimming in some of the cleanest water in Ontario. Water shoes are recommended. If you are looking for a shady spot, there is a covered roadside porch at the front of the cottage with a sitting area. While you're here on holiday, you can explore all that this area has to offer. Fishing charters can be arranged in the area for deep water fishing for lake trout and salmon. Also, the cottage is located only 3 km from the beautiful Lark Whistle Gardens. For those who like to hike, the Bruce Trail is located 0.5 km away and provides spectacular opportunities for hiking and exploration.

There is restaurant within walking distance at the Apple Wood Inn if you'd like to eat out.
