Imagine for a moment... you're sitting in a comfortable chair at the water’s edge in a sheltered bay of a large lake. A forest of green trees seem to surround you. You are breathing in fresh air that is slightly tinged with a hint of odor from the white cedar. There is a clear sky overhead and you can feel the warmth of the sun on your face and a gentle on-shore breeze blowing through your hair. A vast lake stretches out in front of you and the water is crystal clear and coloured the most amazing blue. A few seagulls fly nearby and you hear them calling above the sound of the waves lapping on the shore. As you sit there savouring the moment, your heart-rate begins to slow and you sense your mind and body begin to relax.
We call this place the "Willow Bank".
Just 10 Minutes from Tobermory
The Willow Bank is a clean four bedroom Cape Cod style two-storey cottage located ten minutes south of Tobermory on the shore of a sheltered bay of Lake Huron. The Willow Bank is the perfect all-season destination for people to call home while they rest, relax and explore the rugged and beautiful Northern Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada.
Spectacular Views, Modern Amenities, Privacy, Sandy Shoreline
The cottage features a large elevated front deck that offers visitors a front row seat to enjoy the spectacular views of the waterfront in the bay and looking out over a forest of green trees toward Lake Huron. The cottage is equipped with a long list of modern amenities including wireless high-speed internet, a dishwasher, a gas BBQ and a glass table and chairs on the front deck for outdoor dining, HD satellite TV, two kayaks, a paddle-boat, swimming raft and an outdoor fire-pit to name a few. The Willow Bank offers guests complete privacy in a most unique lake-side setting. There is an apron of sand along the water's edge in front of the cottage making it an ideal place for young children to play and frolick in the shallow water.
UNESCO, Flower Pot Island, Bruce Peninsula National Park, Singing Sands Beach
The Willow Bank is located at the forest edge along the western shore of the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve only a short drive from most of the major tourist attractions on the Northern Bruce Peninsula including the Bruce Peninsula National Park, the Bruce Trail, Fathom Five National Marine Park, Flower Pot Island, the Grotto and Singing Sands Beach.
