After a barbecue dinner on the deck (cottage rule: kids do the dishes!) you can unwind by the fire, make some s'mores and watch the stars. New this summer is the 'Game Spot' in the garage you can enjoy air hockey, foosball and a mini basket ball game. Or, if you prefer a little more activity, there is plenty to do nearby. Bruce Peninsula offers some of the most amazing 'Bruce Trail' hiking in Ontario. 'The Grotto' at Bruce Peninsula National Park is a must see for adventurers!! (And a very cold dip in Georgian Bay if you are brave enough!!) Just around the corner, Red Bay offers a sandy beach with a playground. Red Bay is also home to Earthbound Gardens where they specialize in lillies. They offer tours, yoga, music, workshops and wellness brunches. Other places to visit include Wiarton for the quaint shops, candy store and the home of 'Wiarton Willie' the albino weather-predicting ground hog; Lion's Head for access to the Bruce Trail, farmer's market, free Harbourside Music Concerts and the stunning views! (Can you see the lion's head?) Golfers of all levels will enjoy the Wiarton Golf Club for its nine holes and absolutely stunning views of Georgian Bay. For a more challenging course try Northern Dunes in Hepworth. We hope you will also enjoy the comfort of the cottage: Three bedrooms, sleeps 8 comfortably. (Note: the street-side door enters into one of the bedrooms) . There are a variety of board games, DVD's and books for you (sorry, no cable or internet.) The kitchen is fully equipped including microwave and the cottage essential- a blender. The washroom includes a tub/shower combination. The laundry room has a washer and dryer. Details: Rental period is Saturday to Saturday. Check in 4pm, Check out 12 noon Kitchen is supplied with fridge, electric stove,microwave, toaster, blender, kettle, coffee maker and filters. You will find a small supply of some essentials such as sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil. You are welcome to use these items but we respectfully ask that you replace them if depleted. Air conditioning is supplied by nature's breeze off the bay! There is also a fan in each bedroom. Bedroom #1 has one double bed. (It is topped with queen size memory foam, so please bring queen size sheets.) Bedroom #2 has a bunk bed which is single on top and double on the bottom. Bedroom #3 has a bunk bed, single on top, double on the bottom. The third bedroom is inside the front (road side) door, but most in and out activity is through the beach side door.

Also in the garage you will find a variety of yard games, pool noodles and inflatables to use. The water is warm and shallow with a gradual entry. The bottom is a mix of sand with some smooth rocks and some muck. We do recommend swim shoes for the water. There is a TV for watching DVD's, but no cable/satellite. There is no internet access. We do have a supply of games, books and DVD's for your enjoyment. Just down the road, you will find a general store. If you have forgotten anything, you will probably find it there.

All good things must come to an end :( When it is time to pack up, we ask that you leave the cottage as you found it. There are cleaning supplies in the laundry room. More
