This is a large 2400 sq ft. three bedroom cottage located in the shores of Georgian Bay approximately 8.5km north of downtown Meaford.
The cottage is a spacious, open concept with vaulted ceilings and skylights. There are wideplank hardwood floors throughout. The grounds (80 ft wide lot), decks and shore are all available for your use.
The living room/dining room has walkout sliding glass door onto the wrap-around wooden deck overlooking the beautiful Georgian Bay. Step out, settle into a deck chair and relax with a book and a cool drink while the waves lap the shoreline. From here you can take in some of the most breathtaking sunrises ever seen. Walk down to the lake for a cooling dip or just enjoy the suns warm rays as you wait, with your coffee, for the rest of the household to rise.
The cottage is nestled in a stand of cedars and has a deep rock drainage creek running diagonally through the property. Provided there is water (the creek drys in the heat of summer), let the children play with their boats in the shady creek or watch them frolic in the waters of the lake on a warm, dog day afternoon.
Entry into the limited sand beach is ankle deep. The water is cold but sparkling clear with good swimming. There is a small sandy area, however, due to the rocky shoreline, watershoes are recommended for greater comfort.
Toss in a line off the stone groyne if you're a fishing aficionado - the rainbow trout are some of Georgian Bay's finest! The living room is furnished with a couch, 2 chairs, large screen television, and a radio. The TV has satellite programming. In the corner is a woodstove to take the chill off on those cool summer and fall nights. A skylight provides warm rays of sunshine on those bright days. Adjacent to the living area is a large wooden dining table that seats 8 with a wonderful view out to the bay. Food preparation is in the adjoining fully equipped kitchen. You will find a fridge, stove, microwave and oven. There is lots of counter space to prepare great meals.
The living room has two skylights which, along with eastward facing wall of windows, allow natural sunlight to fill the room. Pick your sunbeam! The bedrooms are on 2 levels with the main floor bedroom (Bedroom #1) having 2 twins off the living room. A 3-piece bathroom (toilet, sink and shower) service the main floor. Bedroom 2 and 3 are on the upper level accessed by a landing overlooking the living area. Bedroom 2, the master bedroom, has a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom. Closet space is ample. Bedroom 3 sleeps 4 in 2 single bunkbeds and a twin with single trundle bed. Again, a large closet is present. The upstairs ensuite bathroom is attractively decorated and very modern. You will find a toilet, sink and tub-surround (with shower and bathtub). Laundry facilities are also provided in the basement.
A basement rec room may be used for the children’s game area. Many board games are provided along with several video games for play on the downstairs TV. A basement walkout permits you to quickly get in out of the sun and into the coolness of the basement. Magnificent luscious grounds surround the cottage. There is a large gravel drive with parking for 3 cars on the road side of the cottage. There is a propane BBQ located adjacent the deck. Take your cooked dinner inside to the dinner table or take in a great meal on the deck while overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay. Make sure to close the umbrella at night as the winds can be strong. That same wind makes for world class windsurfing if you brought yours along! Atop the shoreline break-wall, you will find a firepit on Georgian Bay for the evenings marshmallow roasting. The evening skys are open and provide a breathtaking view of the stars. After supper, consider a stroll along the quiet cottage road. Alternatively, drive into town and stroll around the harbour and marina or bring your bicycles and ride along the Georgian Trail (the old rail line) to Collingwood. The cottage is located within a 10-minute drive of the Town of Meaford with its shops, fine dining (Back Street Cafe), museum and live theater (Georgian Festival). Nearby Owen Sound (15 minutes away) has museums (Grey Roots and Marine and Rail). Bicycling in the area is good. Most of the rural roads are paved and many follow the Georgian Bay shoreline. Regrettably, neither dogs nor smoking is permitted within the cottage.
