Luxury Bruce Peninsula A-Frame with 25 Private Acres and Private Trails!
Historic Luxury Bruce Peninsula A-Frame
Discover the beautiful shores of Lake Huron in Georgian Bay near Ontario, and experience this serene water wonderland of wooded seclusion that provides spectacular views in all directions. Two of the most notable landmarks of this Great Lakes region in the Straits of Mackinac, is Lake Huron itself, as it is the world's largest freshwater lake; and the other natural beauty is a series of over 100 inland lakes, the most notable being Manitoulin island that encompasses Treasure Island. In addition, for history buffs, Georgian Bay is the largest bay on Lake Huron and has a vast historic shipping legacy of lore and legends, and it contains 212 of the 1000 sunken vessels that are in the lake. Many of the beautiful beaches of this region, with their pebbled-sand shores and crystal-clear water coves, have given it the local name of "Canada's Caribbean"!
Escape into a newly constructed A-Frame Lake Cabin located on over 25-acres situated within this paradise found on Lake Huron. Drive down its 4oo-ft gravel road and "off-road" it into a remote yet central location to truly unwind and "become one" within its natural surroundings. Step inside this charming built home that is plucked in the middle of the woods, and find more natural designed aesthetics in its minimalist-modern intimate living spaces - perfect for small families and friend groups. The Great Room provides a warm cozy wood-burning pot-belly fireplace and a "Scandinavian-Canadian" ambiance, with vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and large loft windows to allow natural light to infuse the room. Seating area is beautifully outfitted in neutral furnishings, making it perfect to lounge and entertain - enjoy sipping wine or a cocktail while listening to music on the record player or through the stereo system provided, along with fun board games and books. The Great Room leads out onto the large 34' x 14' wooden deck for further space when gathering. Keeping with the "be one with nature" appeal, the residence does not offer televisions, so as to enjoy one another's company and retreat into a more peaceful mindset while on vacation. There is also a Sitting Room with large picture windows, which includes a day bed for lounging and reading, or if can provide sleeping accommodations for one person; in addition to two wing-back chairs. More entertaining objects of desire can be found in this room which includes an abundance of games, puzzles and an acoustic guitar. Internet access is provided however due to the remote location, it can be spotty at times in this area. Although the residence is not air-conditioned, it is centrally heated for the colder climate months.

For coffee aficionados, there are three brewers to choose from - drip, press and chemex - with coffee beans (and teas) provided to guests.

This is such a wonderful retreat. It is updated with a clean design and everything you could hope to find - including a wood-fired sauna!”
This property was a beautiful little cabin in the woods.. Southern Ontario was in a heat wave and we didn’t even notice up here, even though there wasn’t any air conditioning. Easy access to lots of hiking trails. Absolutely beautiful nature everywhere! Lovely, quiet and clean.”
