There is something just so majestic about Georgian Bay and its natural raw beauty! No matter where a home or cottage is on the shores of this vast expanse of water, you are drawn into the tranquil grandness of its presence.
This lovely 4,500 sq. ft., 2 level, 4 bedroom cottage is located on the shores of Georgian Bay just minutes from Owen Sound. The owners chose the cottage so that family and friends could escape the hectic pace of the city and retreat to this wonderful cottage while having the security and all the comforts of home!
The 4-season cottage/home has 2 spacious levels, both having a fully equipped kitchen, a family room, sleeping accommodation(s) and bathroom(s). All rooms are beautifully and tastefully appointed. The upper level is slightly formal while the lower level is more casual and cozy.
The main living spaces on both levels have open concept kitchen/dining/living areas with amazing views of the lake. Even in the winter, when you walk in the door it’s hard to believe it is winter as you take in the striking Caribbean-like aqua colours of the endless miles of lake before you! Enjoy creating meal menus on either level with both catering to a family affair of sharing in the prepping and making of meals with an abundance of counter space and kitchen islands with bar stools.
The lower level will be the place for family to retreat to after dinner. Cuddle up on the comfy couches and lounge chairs to watch a movie or Netflix or challenge someone to a game of shuffle board or a game of poker while taking in the relaxing views of the lake.
There is a lakefront bedroom on the lower level and 3 bedrooms on the upper level with the expansive master bedroom facing out to the lake as well. The master bedroom is truly an oasis onto itself with a gorgeous king size 4-poster bed, sitting room with a walk-out to the deck and a 5-piece ensuite bathroom. The perfect place to escape to after a long day of fun in the sun and relax and soak in the jacuzzi tub and then sit on the deck with a glass of wine and take in the spectacular lake view and listen to the soothing sound of the waves splashing up on the dock.
The location of the property allows you to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets, no matter what season. The driveway is also conveniently close to the road but the backyard is definitely a cottage setting with an expansive lake facing deck, lakeside fire pit near the dock and for boat lovers, a boat launch on the property. Swim, paddle, fish or just relax the days away.
Activities near the property are also endless and great for day trips and exploring. Just a 10 minute drive away is an amazing water falls and trails to hike on (Inglis), relax at Kelso Beach Park or Bass Lake Park or head out for a longer days outing to Tobermory at the top of the Bruce Peninsula and ferry over to Manitoulin Island.
Needless to say, any stress that may have followed you from the city will drain away the moment you vacation at this fabulous cottage/home property!
