Spacious, four storey, Cape Cod style, executive cottage located in beautiful Big Tub Harbour within walking distance to all the conveniences of Tobermory. With 2600 square feet, this is a home away from home and a luxurious base from which to explore all that the Tobermory area has to offer.
The open concept of the main living area of the cottage features 30 foot cathedral ceilings, large windows overlooking Big Tub Harbour, and beautiful hardwood floors. This open area includes the kitchen, dining room, and a sitting room and is the communal space for everyone in your group to gather.
The kitchen features all the conveniences of home including fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and even a dual zone wine fridge. The breakfast bar counter space provides extra room for prep as well as a view of Big Tub while preparing your meal. The stools around the breakfast bar are the perfect place for a quick snack.
A leather couch and two wing chairs in the seating area provides a space to relax while still visiting with the chef in the family, or to read without the distraction of a television.
The dining area has a dining table to comfortably seat all ten people in the party and in this area is a set of doors that access the deck with cushioned seating and a stainless steel bbq. The view of the water, clear deck glass, and comfortable seating creates the ideal setting for a morning coffee or evening cocktail. Sit and watch the boats moving in and out of the harbour while reading a book or watching the colors of the sunset. This covered deck area is also a great place to get out of the sun or keep the rain off of you.
Also on the main living level is a den with a 42", flat screen, LCD television. The hardwood floors finish the look of this room, and a couch and two chairs provide comfortable seating to relax and enjoy some television on a rainy day.
The bathroom on the main living level is a three piece with walk in shower.
Three bedrooms are on the lower level of the cottage. The master bedroom features a King sized bed, a large ensuite three piece bathroom with walk-in shower, and french doors lead to a deck that overlooks Big Tub Harbour. Bedrooms two and three are both spacious and have queen sized beds. There is a second bathroom on the lower level of the cottage, this one a four piece with both shower and bathtub.
The fourth bedroom is located on the third storey of the cottage. This is the perfect place for the children in your party. A loft area overlooks the main living level and a table with chairs presents the perfect place for cards, board games and puzzles. A fourth bathroom with a toilet and sink is very handy. This loft space is designed with kids in mind, and will be a big hit with the children in your group.
From the loft area, there is a set of stairs that accesses the widows walk. With a wall of windows on all four sides of the room, the view from this room is truly breathtaking. A telescope in this room aids the view of all of Big Tub as well as some of the off shore islands of the Fathom Five National Marine Park. While it is a great idea for children to take in this view, it should be under adult supervision so that renters that come in after you are able to enjoy it as well.
Another deck down by the water with loungers and patio seats provides front row seating to Big Tub Harbour. This is a great place to watch the boats moving in and out of the harbour, or to watch the swimmers in the party enjoy the clear water.
Big Tub Harbour is a beautiful deep water harbour popular for scuba diving and snorkeling, Two shipwrecks are within 100 metres of the front of the cottage. Bring your mask, snorkel and flippers to explore the wrecks.
The cottage is located only 1 km from the scenic Village of Tobermory where you can stroll through the shops in the village, visit the library, restaurants and the beautiful natural harbour, or take a scenic boat cruise where you view shipwrecks, lighthouses and visit Flowerpot Island. Also, dinner cruises aboard the Chi-Cheemaun are very popular.
