Airy four bedroom, open concept waterfront cottage located on Cameron Lake near the picturesque village of Tobermory in the heart of the Bruce Peninsula National Park.
The cottage is situated on top of a small knoll which provides a panoramic view of Cameron Lake. The unique design of the cottage takes full advantage of its location.
The majority of the living area of the cottage is located on the second floor. This area has an open concept design featuring a wall of glass from the floor to ceiling that provides an uninhibited view of the natural outdoors from wherever you are sitting. The living room contains a couch, two comfortable chairs, wood stove, cathedral ceilings and stereo system. There is a sound system for CD and radio, with an iPod connection. Also in this area is a harvest table with seating for all six in your group. Next to the living room is the kitchen which comes equipped with a fridge, electric stove with oven, microwave and adequate counter and cupboard space. Sliding glass doors lead from the main living area to an exterior deck that extends the entire width of the cottage. This deck contains two sitting areas; one directly in front of the cottage complete with two Muskoka chairs, and a second, larger area containing more space for seating. For those who are looking for a place to get out of the sun, there is also a shade deck located on the ground level that has been enlarged and has a separate seating area with a clear view of the lake.
There are four bedrooms at the cottage. The large master bedroom has a king size bed, sliding glass doors and a door to the four piece bathroom. The second bedroom on the upper floor has a double bed and a set of single bunk beds. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor which have had new flooring and windows installed and also have been insulated to help keep it cool and dry. One room has a queen size bed, sink cabinet with hot and cold water and a separate enterance. The other room also has a queen size bed and also retains a set of bunkbeds. The property steps down to the lake in a series of small plateaus by way of wooden stairs and railings. Steps lead down from the parking area to a small grassy area containing a picnic table. Another set of stairs lead from the front of the cottage down to a separate flat area containing a fire pit. This is a great area to have an evening fire under the stars.
The next set of stairs leads down to the water's edge where you will find a newly constructed dock. This dock is 25 feet long with an 8 by 16 ft sitting area at the end. At this sitting area you'll find a bench so you can sit and enjoy the view, as well as a canopy that provides shade so you can still enjoy a cool breeze off the water on a hot summer day. There is a ladder and swim raft as well, for jumping into the water. The shoreline at the cottage has a shallow entry, and provides access to good swimming. The best thing about swimming in the clear waters of Cameron Lake is that the water temperature is not influenced by the frigid undercurrents from the Great Lakes and Georgian Bay. From the shore or from the dock platform you can supervise the kids playing in the water or jumping off the swim raft, or you can take your morning coffee out to watch the beautiful sunrises over the lake. There is a hiking trail that leads you from the cottage to the Grotto on Georgian Bay in the National Park. It is a one hour hike in (please note this hike is not suitable for the young or the elderly). This way you don't have to worry about parking at the Park entrance. A canoe and three kayaks are also available to allow you to explore the serene lake area and there is a fishing boat with oars for bass and pickerel enthusiasts. You can paddle through to Cyprus Lake, part of the National Park (depending on water levels) or just stay on quiet Cameron Lake. The village of Tobermory offers plenty of shops and stores for those who like to wander. You can dine at any of the pubs and/or restaurants, or perhaps purchase some sweets from the famous Sweet Shop.
