About the property

Waterfront, four bedroom 2,240 sq ft cottage located on the picturesque shores of Hope Bay on the Bruce Peninsula. This cottage provides ample space for you and your family to enjoy your holiday, with great deck space and a sandy area right at the shore that's just for you!

The bright, modern kitchen includes a stove/oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and much more so your meal preparation is just like home. Out on the deck a propane BBQ is available for your use. Just adjacent to the kitchen's raised island is a dining area with a table and six chairs, situated by large windows that look directly out to the Bay and give you a fantastic panoramic view.

Beside this is the main living area with a couch, lounger and a couple of chairs surrounding a wood-burning fireplace. Windows in this area continue the panoramic view of the waterfront.

There are two bathrooms at this cottage: one is a four-piece with a tub and separate shower (surrounded by unique stonework - see picture), and the second bathroom is a two-piece with toilet and sink.

Two of the four bedrooms are located on the main floor, and each has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms are located upstairs - one offers a queen size bed while the other provides a single bunkbed. Each of the bedrooms has a ceiling fan to circulate the air, as well as heating via electric baseboard.

In the upper level of the cottage there is also a spacious living area that provides the perfect spot to relax and hang out. There are two leather couches and two comfy chairs as well as a futon for lounging. A large screen TV with a DVD player is available, so bring your favourite movies to enjoy on a rainy day. There is also a table and chairs that is perfect for playing a boardgame or getting work done (if you need!). Patio doors off of this living space bring you out to the upper balcony, with a great view of the water and surroundings.

Back on the lower level there is a cozy sitting area that provides a spot to get away with a good book. Out on the 350 sq ft deck, there is plenty of space to enjoy the fresh air. Here there is a patio table with six chairs - the perfect place to enjoy a meal outside.

The cottage is located on Hope Bay, which is a sheltered bay on Georgian Bay. There is a sandy area down by the shoreline with sandy entry into the water. Entry is also shallow, so it's great for the kids before getting deeper for fantastic swimming. About half a kilometre away is the Hope Bay public sand beach which is also a great spot for the kids to play.

Access to the famous Bruce Trail is steps from the cottage, so you can walk out the door and hit the trail! For your enjoyment, the cottage offers a kayak for exploration out on the water, and a fire pit for family fun.

The cottage is also centrally located, so you are not far from many of the attractions on the Bruce Peninsula and is just a drive away from Sauble Beach, Wiarton, Lion's Head and Tobermory. There's no excuse to not get out and explore the area!

place not that clean when we arrived, dirty dishes

expensive for lack of commodities ( no access to washer and dryer-locked in basement/

no wi-fi- no TV except for projector, no dishwasher, no linen) we did get the door code only

12 hours before leaving, hard to reach owner trough the canadian stay and Ontario renal cottage organisations... Bruce peninsula is a gorgeous region and I would return any time.
