Nothing is overlooked at this cottage, and the landscaping is no exception. Outside of the cottage, you have your choice in seating areas. There is a covered patio with a table and four chairs, the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee. There is a stone patio with propane bbq, seating for an outdoor meal as well as a view of the water.
A truly unique part of the landscaping is the all natural limestone area situated between the cottage and the water. This is a natural occurrence, not man-made, and is the top of the escarpment. A fence runs along the cliff's edge in order to make the outdoor area safer for children.
A set of stairs leads from the cottage down to the waters of Georgian Bay. Part way down the escarpment is a small lakeside deck built into the rock escarpment for front row seating to the tranquility of Georgian Bay.
The shoreline is a limestone rock, and there is a small sandy area which serves as the perfect place for children to play. Swim shoes are recommended. There is a gradual increase in depth though the water will get very deep.
