A gorgeous, artistic home on waterfront property available to discerning holidaymakers.
Five bedroom house with private grounds, on beautiful Georgian Bay, 2 hours' drive north of Toronto.

We have 10 years experience renting to discrete, comfort seeking vacationers. The spacious house has 5 double bedrooms, each decorated with real art, the inviting beds made up with egyptian cotton linens and custom comforters.

Jump out of bed and wade into the refreshing waters of Georgian Bay, try the sea kayaks and paddle to nearby Christian Island, or bicycle to a nearby farm for fresh eggs and natural honey, or horseback riding!

At mealtimes you can BBQ on the beach firepit, or on the outdoor gas grill, and dine outside on the teak deck furniture, while admiring the sunset - a different spectacular show each...

Relaxing stay. Cottage was clean, cute and all essential where available. Perfect weather to enjoy the sun. Aside from the rocky beach and mosquitoes the cottage was perfect.

Management response:

thanks! Fascinatingly, water levels on Georgian Bay were way up this year after years of decline. As a result of this, the waves threw up a lot of small rocks onto our formerly sandy beach! We spent the fall experimenting with removing the rocks ( no small task ) only to find that the next big storm converted the beach...

My family, along with 2 other families (6 adults and 5 kids), rented this lovely cottage on the edge of Georgian Bay. It was the perfect holiday weekend and we all agreed that the Dacha was a fabulous find! We walked along the waters' edge and were awed by the gorgeous icy lake, made snow forts in the cul de...
