Sweet Maple is a comfortable tastefully furnished 1100 square foot cottage on the bay of Cape Chin South on the Northern Bruce Peninsula....Ontario's best kept secret and recognized by UNESCO as a "World Biosphere reserve". Cape Chin is situated on the East Side of the Peninsula, a scenic paradise for nature lovers and sports enthusiast alike. To the South of the cottage, less than 500m walking distance is the Bruce Trail that winds 11 km through Smokey Head Bluff (provinvial park) to a trailhead north of Lion’s Head. We are situated between two villages Tobermory, which is within the Bruce National Park ( here the ferry, M.S. Chi-Cheemaun leaves for Manitoulin Island from May to Thanksgiving ) and Lion's Head with its lovely public sand beach and protected boat dock. Both villages offer grocery stores, LCBO's, banks, shops and restaurants. Come and enjoy the cottage's relaxing atmosphere, looking out over the treetops to clear turquoise waters of Georgian Bay just meters away. Perched on top of the Niagara Escarpment you will experience spectacular sunrises that only compete with its spectacular moonrises, copy&past this link for weather, sunrise and moonrise schedule. https://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/weather/ontario/cape-chin
Outside of the cottage, you have your choice in seating areas. Through the glass sliding doors is a deck that has a cover with new BBQ and wind screen for those rainy days or when the sun is too hot. A few steps down leads to a large lower deck with lots of seating and a unique pair of benches that fold into a picnic tables that can accommodate 8 people for dinner all with a view of the shore.
Across the lawn and down to the shore where this additional seating and great access to the water. The shoreline is rocky, swim shoes recommended, but drops off gradually and very accessible to swimmers.
The cottage is a 1,100 square feet with three bedrooms and a very open living room dining and kitchen area with many beautiful views to the shore. The cabin has laminate wood flooring throughout and a beautiful cedar board interior. The main living area of the cottage is all open concept. The Living area has large semi-circular leather couch and two lazyboy recliners. Couple steps up from the living area are three bedrooms, the larger with queen bed, the second near the bathroom with a double and the middle smaller room with a single bed. The dining table that seats four people comfortably has a nice view overlooking the covered porch and the bay, there is also a pot-belly propane stove here that is thermostatically controlled for those cool evenings. In the kitchen you will find all the standard amenities including a small island for food preparation, fridge, stove, oven, coffee maker, kettle, toaster and microwave. There are cupboards with all the required utensils and cooking supplies, adequate counter space and a pantry. There is a washer/dryer for laundry and the cottage has built in vacuum.

What makes this Cottage unique
This property is on a road that has very limited number of cottages and adjacent to a provincial park. Some of our favorite trips include riding the bicycles south about 2km into the provincial park along an old two track to very private beach and/or then hike up to Smokey Head Bluff for a picnic. Or a loop on the Bruce trail side trails also within the provincial park. Another favorite trip is to canoe north to a secluded bay where large rocks very near to the waters surface can be stood on and swam around. The night sky from the shore chairs is always a treat.

A Great Getaway
Very clean cottage, amazing location.. beautiful view of Georgian Bay
Awesome, thanks for writing the review and glad you enjoyed our special place by the bay.
Beautiful private serene surroundings
It was our first time in Bruce Peninsula and the property we chose could not have been better for what we were after. Ultimate serenity and relaxation. The cottage setting is impressive with vast water views and hiking nearby is ultimate with amazing view rewards on lookouts. The owners are very responsive and a great source of useful information. If we were to chose cottage vacation again I wouldn't think twice if where to book.
Thanks for the lovely comments, happy you enjoyed our place at Cape Chin South
Great family venue
Lovely stay at Sweet Maple. Everything we wanted and expected from our first visit to Canada and Ontario. Great place for the kids.
Glad you enjoyed your first Ontario stay on Georgian Bay
