The Willow Bank is a clean four bedroom luxury cottage located on the beautiful Northern Bruce Peninsula ten minutes south of Tobermory on the shore of a sheltered inlet of Lake Huron. The cottage is located in a private setting surrounded by water and a forest of green trees. The cottage is a few minute drive from the major tourist attractions including the Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, the Grotto and Singing Sands Beach.

The cottage is fully booked until August 31st. We are offering some weekly, mid-week and weekend stays starting after that date this late summer and fall. Explore the beautiful Bruce Peninsula after most of the tourists have headed home.

The cottage is comfortably furnished and equipped outside with many modern amenities including a large front deck, a gas BBQ, patio table and chairs, a shoreline fire pit and two kayaks. Inside the cottage, there is a long list of amenities including a dishwasher, two 46 inch flat screen satellite HDTV's and a complimentary wireless high-speed internet connection just to name a few.

The lake water in front of the cottage is clean and the lake bottom there is sandy. There is an apron of sand along the water's edge in front of the cottage. This is a safe location for children and adults to swim, wade and splash about in the warm lake water. Two ride-on-the-top BIC kayaks with paddles and adult size personal flotation devices are provided for visitors to use. Paddling the kayaks in the shelter of the bay or out to the main lake is a great way for visitors to spend some time while exploring the area around the cottage by water.

Note: The Willow Bank cottage is located in a natural area on the shores of a sheltered inlet of Lake Huron. The cottage is aptly named because it was built on the bank of a trout stream named the Willow Creek as it flows into Lake Huron. This trout stream attracts birds, waterfowl and a wide variety of animals.

There might be many cottages to rent on the Northern Bruce Peninsula but there are few that offer visitors as quiet and private a location as the Willow Bank cottage.

By far the best cottage experience ever. The cottage has plenty of privacy and stunning views from the deck and the lake front. Ample amount of space for a family to play and enjoy. Kayaking around the lake was beautiful. The cottage was clean with upgraded washrooms on both levels and had everything we needed. Camp fire by the lake at dark with beautiful sky above. Glenn went out of his way to ensure we were taken care of, he even allowed us to check in much earlier and check out late. If you are looking for a place to stay in Tobermory, then this is it. My family and friends enjoyed every part of it. We will definitely be back here. Thanks Glenn for making our stay comfortable and memorable.

Wow!!!I'm speechless. Joseph, thank you, for first wanting to stay at the Willow Bank cottage and secondly for taking the time to post such a wonderful online review. Your kind words made me feel that our behind-the-scene efforts were being recognized and appreciated by our guests. I am glad that you, your family and friends were able to enjoy the privacy and the beauty of this location. It really is a special place. There is no place like it anywhere else in the world. I feel it is a privilege to be able to call it mine. In the off-season, I concentrate on repairs and upgrades around the building any property. I provide my guests with the extra amenities that I would have wanted if I were staying at the Willow Bank cottage as a guest. I strive to provide that same experience that you wrote about for all my guests. I am truly honoured that you would want to return. Thank you again.

The view from the cottage as you walk into the lounge is stunning. Kayaking around the creek on a sunny evening was very peaceful and relaxing. The views of the stars at night were amazing. The cottage is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owner is friendly and helpful and ensured that everything we needed to know was clearly explained. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area with Tobermory a short drive away.

There was lots of space for our family to relax and enjoy our vacation

Thank you Ryan for deciding to spend some time at the Willow Bank cottage. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. I wish you all the best and look forward to hearing from you again in the future.

Excellent owner to deal with.
Cottage is fantastic and beautiful.
This was our second stay and there will be more in the future.
From sitting downstairs in front of the gas fire watching a movie on the home theatre to drinking coffee on the deck taking in the beautiful scenery and wildlife to laying out on the deck watching the night sky to cooking all our meals on the gas grill to the quiet and serenity to being close to everything makes this cottage just perfect.
