Now booking for the Winter.
Enjoy a beautiful winter weekend, when the snow is crisp and the air is clean and fresh, the snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and skidooing are absolutely delightful; or just cozy-up inside the warm cottage with a good book, great food or your favourite shows on widescreen HD TV.
Waterfront paradise, right here on Georgian Bay, just a short 8-minute drive from the quaint historic town of Meaford, a 15-minute drive to either Owen Sound or Thornbury, and only a 35-minute drive to Blue Mountain Village, where the skiing is great and the Village restaurants and pubs are always fun. This beautiful property features what must surely be one of the best waterfronts and beaches in the province.
The main cottage includes two queen-size bedrooms plus a third bedroom/office combination with a double-bed-size pull-out couch. Large modern kitchen features a custom-built island, all the usual appliances (dishwasher, stove, fridge, microwave, toaster oven) and a walk-in pantry with bar fridge. An ultraviolet water system means the water is drinkable from all indoor taps. A new, modern bathroom includes large, ceramic-tiled walk-in shower and stacked clothes washer/dryer.
6 people maximum (incl. 4 adults maximum); no pets or smokers, please.
The cottage has been in the family since it was first purchased by my grandfather in 1952. Upon his death two years later, my father bought-out his brother's portion of the cottage and it became our 'family cottage' for many years. I bought the cottage from my parents in 1995, when they were too old to manage it any longer, and the cottage underwent a complete interior renovation at that time. In 2010, the cottage underwent a major renovation, both inside and outside, resulting in a nice balance between the old and the new, including new, modern bathroom, kitchen, pantry, entrance way and exterior landscaping. The beach, however, is still the same beautiful sandy beach we've always enjoyed, and the shallow water is as clear and clean as it has ever been ... great for swimming, boating, snorkeling and especially good for kids.
Jay Parkes purchased this cottage in 1995
We were so impressed with Jay's cottage from the moment we arrived for our weekend getaway. You can immediately see pride of ownership in this property, with the cottage, the lawn, the beach and the flowers so well taken care of. The view is just beautiful of the Georgian Bay and we enjoyed campfires on the beach and using the kayaks. Jay was always available to call with any questions and was very helpful in the booking and planning process. Thanks for a great cottage experience!
A near perfect blend of location, quality and comfort. Our expectations were exceeded at every turn. Truly a great vacation destination that we will be happy to return to sometime soon.
Jay was friendly, responsive, and very helpful throughout the entire experience.
We spent a week at the dream cottage on Georgian bay. The house was very clean and organized. The house had everything you could need. The views of the water were beautiful. Nice quiet area. Great location. Jay was great to work with. Had a wonderful time. would love to go back.
This place is a gem! Beautiful property. We stayed 3 nights and it has it all. The water was too cold this time of year but the views were breath taking. Jay (owner) provided kayaks and bikes. Great things to do to explore the area. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who needs a getaway and relax! Will definitely go again.
Cottage is in a gorgeous location. We really enjoyed sitting by the water and reading. Great fire pit right on the beach for night time fires, marshmallow roasting and gazing at the stars. Absolutely loved the use of the kayaks. Cottage has great sun room where you can eat inside and look out, in addition to outdoor table. Very clean, well cared for. Jay was very helpful, answered any questions that came up. He clearly takes pride in the property and wants his guests to have a good experience.
Jay was pro-active with communicating with us and ensuring we got to the place properly and were settled in as well. The first impression of the place was very good. Best of all, that's how the impression stayed for the rest of the weekend. The house is nicely maintained, with sufficient amenities; great backyard with a deck and BBQ, and a wonderful view to sit outdoors and chill. Would definitely love to come back here and will certainly recommend this property to friends.
