You've worked hard all year and you deserve a holiday. You've decided that this year instead of wasting  two days of your vacation flying to and from some far off country, you would "staycation" closer to home in Ontario. Your friends have mentioned how much they have enjoyed visiting Tobermory and the Northern Bruce Peninsula. You thought you would go on-line to see what all the fuss was about and you were excited to read about all the places to visit and things to do in this unique area of Ontario. You've started looking for a place to stay and you're now  considering renting a cottage.

Well you're in luck because you have landed on a web-site developed to showcase the most often reviewed and one of the highest rated vacation properties on the entire Bruce Peninsula by Flip Key and Trip Advisor. In 2011, 2012 and 2013 this cottage was rated excellent by previous guests whey they posted their on-line reviews of the property following their stay. 

You could consider this as your first step in a journey that will lead you to a place where you can be assured a relaxing vacation at this special cottage that is located in a very quiet and secluded area of the Northern Bruce Peninsula about a 10 minute drive south of Tobermory.

Let your journey begin.

Imagine for a moment... you're standing at the water’s edge of a sheltered bay off of a large lake. There is a forest of green trees behind  you. You're  breathing in fresh air that is slightly tinged with a hint of  white cedar. There's a clear sky overhead and a you sense a gentle on-shore breeze  blowing through your hair. A vast sea of blue water stretches out in front of you. The lake water there is crystal clear and it is the most amazing colour of blue. You notice a few seagulls flying nearby and you hear them calling above the sound of the waves lapping on the shore. As you stand there savouring the moment, your heart-rate  slows and you sense your body and mind begin to relax.   

There's no need to imagine this scene anymore because this place does exist and it's only a morning drive north-west of Toronto. You can experience this place for yourself while staying in a clean and comfortable cottage located on the Lake Huron shoreline. 

We call this place the Willow Bank.  

The Willow Bank is a modern four bedroom cottage located ten minutes south of Tobermory on the shore of Lake Huron. The Willow Bank is the perfect all-season accommodation for guests to call home while they rest, relax and explore the beautiful Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada.

The Willow Bank cottage can accommodate families and groups with a maximum number of 7 people. 

The cottage is located a short distance from the most popular tourist attractions in the area including the Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, Flower Pot Island, the Grotto, the Bruce Trail and Singing Sands Beach which is rated one of the finest sand beaches on the entire Bruce Peninsula. 

Please take your time and look around this site. I suggest reading the description in the "Details" section and looking at the photos in the "Photo" section. You might want to read what our previous guests have had to say about their stay at the cottage in the "Reviews" section.
