COVID-19 UPDATE APRIL 2020: We are no longer taking any rentals for the months of April - July 2020 and will reassess the situation in July based on the Covid-19 situation.
The Government/local authorities have requested that we do not go out to the cottage as the small local communities cannot cope with the additional influx of people at this time. In addition, social distancing requirements do not allow groups of more than 5 people. The few Grocery stores in the area are already short on supplies and the medical facilities, if necessary, are not easily accessible and do not have the capacity to cope with all the additional people in the area.
We are doing our best to help our Government save lives and flatten, if not crush, the curve. We hope you understand.
Location, Location, Location - this cottage is well known for its absolutely wonderful location on one of the most beautiful spots on the lake. The view from the property was highlighted in the Globe and Mail a few years ago.
Located on prestigious Lake Huron, our waterfront vacation house features lots of sandy beach and swimming in beautiful clear water. Some areas may have a few rocks/pebbles and the area of the sandy beach depends on on what the weather brings in or takes out (can go from 100ft to 10 ft) but these only add to the beauty of the beach or just increases the swimming areas.
Come and experience the spectacular Lake Huron sunsets.
Sun worshipper or shade lover you will find them here.
Relax on the outdoor deck, 2 patios or 2 balconies while watching the sun set over the lake. Enjoy each others company or dance, make smores and sing around the firepit.
This beach house is fully air conditioned during the hot summer and heated during the winter.
With 4 bedrooms and a much needed 3rd bathroom, you can enjoy the kind of magnificent space and layout that makes for a fabulous vacation that offers privacy to each person. The bedrooms have been comfortably designed to be away from the main activity areas. It's easy for anyone in the group to get away to relax or read when they want to, turn in before the rest of the group in the evening or to sleep late in the morning.
Beds are as follows:
Master Bedroom - 2 Queen size beds and 1 double Futon, ensuite bathroom, gas fireplace, balcony and beautiful view of lake.
Bedroom 2 - double bed
Bedroom 3 - double bed
Bedroom 4 - double bed
2 additional bathrooms located near Bedroom 2, 3 and 4
Double Sofa bed
Our kitchen is fully loaded with all appliances and service for 12. The dining area is surrounded by a superb view of Lake Huron. This is the perfect spot to entertain, and features an expandable table with seating for 12. Enjoy the beauty of this magnificent part of the world, while having a meal.
Our family room has a beautiful view of the lake. There is a TV, DVD/CD player and VCR, a small library and also a few board games.
Our games area, a converted garage, features a convertible pool table, table tennis and air hockey tables suitable for young children.
The front of the property is enclosed by a treed fence and offers a wonderful secure playing area for children. One can also play badminton or volleyball. This area has a small patio and offers an alternative on really windy days.
The beach is normally accessible via the field next to our property that gently slopes down to only 30 wooden steps. Sometimes, if water levels rise, the beach may not be easily accessible this way especially for toddlers and seniors. Children and some adults have a lot of fun and adventure jumping on exposed rocks to find their way. However, in 2019 we built a private 65 wooden steps and rails at the end of our property . There is a landing approx every 14-15 steps and makes the beach easily accessible throughout the year.
We are conveniently located in the St Joseph's community, a few minutes drive between Grand Bend and Bayfield.
Sun, rain or snow, there is always something to do. Enjoy the little towns, golfing, restaurants, antique shops, drag racing, nightlife, marinas and lots more fun at these popular summer vacation destinations or just stay at our beach house and enjoy the privacy.
Only full week bookings (Fri - Fri) in the Summer. Weekend/short stay bookings during the rest of the year.
For health reasons, we have maintained chemical free lawns and gardens. We have let the trees, wildflowers and plants grow to preserve the cottage ambience, but still perform regular weekly maintenance. Our indoor and outdoor furniture is practical and user friendly. We are very proud to maintain most of our annual renters who love the traditional cottage feel at a wonderful location. That is a true luxury in this day and age.
