Ipperwash Beach is sandy with world class sunsets! Located just a short 50 minute (60 km) drive north of Sarnia, you can enjoy the lake breezes and the warm summer sun located a short distance from this cottage. There is no shore bluff to climb up and down - just carry your beach chair and bag a short walk to a deeded path and you're at the beach! In the heat of summer, the beach is quite popular and can be accessed by vehicles (cars may park on the beach). A Frisbee and a kite board would complete your gear because the wind is usually steady onto the beach. The cottage access road is gravel, and quiet with little traffic. Perfect for exploring and enjoying serenity. The view is north but has great sunsets to the west over Kettle Point (where you can find unique rounded stones on the lake bottom just off the reserve, geological anomalies that the elders call 'thunderbird eggs'). The beach is a great place to wander along the shore and explore, or just relax and contemplate life while watching the children construct sandcastles! To get to the water, it's just 100 meters away or a short walk from the cottage down the road to the access trail. Inside the cottage, the kitchen and living room are open concept. There is a fridge, stove and microwave along one wall while the living room area is opposite. The kitchen table has a bench against the wall and four chairs. Walk out the back kitchen door to the deck with your breakfast and/or coffee. Or sit inside and enjoy your book or watch TV while relaxing in the comfortable sofa and chair. The bedrooms and bathroom/laundry room are all located down the hall. There are three bedrooms, two of which each have a queen bed and one that has a set of bunkbeds (single over double). The bathroom is a three piece with updated white fixtures and glass enclosed shower stall. The cottage has a large grassy backyard with a firepit to enjoy. It is perfectly shaded when the sun gets hot! Golfing is nearby at one of the many local courses. It's 3 km to Our Ponderosa Golf Resort, 5 km to Indian Hills Golf Club or 10 km to Sand Hills Golf Resort. For other activities, the cottage is only 22 km from the Pinery Provincial Park and Grand Bend - making it an ideal location for day trips into either town or to another beach community. On the way stop in at the Lambton Heritage Museum (21 km away) to see Canada's largest collection of pressed glass and period buildings. For the geologist or rock hounds, you really shouldn't miss a trip to the Rock Glen Conservation Area near Arkona (26 km away) to hunt fossil brachiopods (Mucrospirifer Arkonensis and Mucrospirifer Thedfordensis) and a take a refreshing 'shower' under the 10 metre high falls. In downtown Sarnia you will find lots of boutiques, fine restaurants, and Sarnia harbour.
