Perfect family retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed here very comfortably. The cottage is clean and so cozy and the property is beautiful! We spent lots of time exploring the Bruce but also spent time just hanging on the beach, swimming, paddle boarding and catching frogs at the cottage:-) Doug and Marlene were very nice and helpful too:-) Thank you!

Excellent Getaway Prperty for Divers

  • 5 of 5

Quiet Cabin with all amenities - 20 min Tobermory and some of the best Cold Water Wreck Diving in the world! especially nice as we had a private beach and the 20 min drive kept us out of the hussle and bussle of the very busy Tobermory tourist area.

The listing was accurate, very clean and well maintained property, Doug the owner is a terrific communicator, highly recommend this property!

Why Doug Hill chose Northern Bruce Peninsula

We purchased the property when our children were young so they would have opportunity to create summer memories on the waterfront. They still come back every year for their summer holiday.

What makes this cottage unique
