Waterfront

Welcome to The Bruce Retreat!

We are located on the sheltered inlet of Long Bay on Lake Huron in Tobermory. Our guests can enjoy the calm and warmer waters of the inlet; great for swimming, fishing, kayaking and kids of all ages. The cottage is nestled among natural forest on almost an acre of land, providing a private and peaceful vacation.

Finding a spot to sit and enjoy the view is very easy in our cottage! The sun-room, which faces the lake, consists entirely of windows and is furnished with comfortable seating. There is a large table to enjoy one of our many games or puzzles, or curl up and enjoy a book while listening to the sounds of the birds and water. The sun-room is also an excellent place to watch the sunset.

A large 4 window with 2 slider doors leads out to the large fully covered porch which also has a beautiful view of the lake. This area is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee, watch the birds or enjoy the outdoors with shelter from the sun. For the 2020 season we added a fully screened-in area off the sliding doors, extending your outdoor time with a bug free experience. There is also a 2-tier deck at the back of the cottage which is accessible from the sun-room or family room. This is also a beautiful place to sit to enjoy a view of the forested areas that surround the cottage or to catch some rays.

The main part of the cottage consists of an open concept kitchen, dining area, and large family room with a beautiful field stone fireplace. This area opens to the sun-room with over-sized French doors, each flanked with a large window. The openness and airiness of the cottage give new meaning to 'bringing the outdoors in'.

My mom and I had wonderful time at The Bruce Retreat. The cottage is very spacious and cozy with modern and clean amenities. We loved the screened porch which allowed to enjoy the fresh air when it was too wet to sit outside after the night rain. We loved sitting in Muskoka chairs (both on the deck and next to the water) and just relaxing listening to different birds (wish we could name them!) and "cleaning up" our lungs with the fresh air. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful trees and plants - yellow lady slipper orchids were in bloom! We were also making daily trips for hiking and were really happy to discover a nice quiet place called Cape Hurd Nature Trail which is just 10 minutes drive from the cottage. Janet was very helpful with answering my questions promptly. We would definitely recommend The Bruce Retreat. Thank you so much, Janet and Chris, for your hospitality!

This was one of the most well kept and clean cottages I have ever rented. I have rented at least 50 cottages over the last 20 years. The hosts supplied everything you can imagine. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools for a cook or chef. Many games to play on a rainy day or if you just want to stay at the cottage. The view is spectacular. Perfect spot to have a morning coffee or breakfast as we did. Location is less then 15 minutes to Tobermory and maybe 20 minutes to Bruce National Park. The beds are excellent quality. The cottage is nicely divided for 2 families with 2 queen beds in separate private areas and 2 more beds for children. I have recommended this cottage to many friends and co-workers since our stay. This was our first stay and won't be our last. Excellent hosts readily available by phone to care for any needs. We were able to add extra days to our stay we enjoyed the stay so much.

Our stay at The Bruce Retreat was just that a retreat! So relaxing. Though this was a hot, humid week, the cottage had plenty of cooling fans to keep things comfortable. We loved the use of the kayaks and the shallow and warm water of the bay was a delight! You can almost WALK out into the middle of the bay. Water shoes or crocs are a definite must, though with the rocky bottom. It was great to know that we could also be in and out of town in mere minutes. We would love to come back to this little piece of heaven!

Simply Wonderful! The Bruce Retreat is total relaxation. Rooms with a view to drool over. This cottage is full of windows making it feel like heaven on earth. The peace and tranquility of the area can be experienced here. The cottage is open and airy during the day and so cozy and warm in the evening. Plenty of room to for a family to hang out together and enjoy the sights of the Bruce Peninsula. Morning coffee by the water has never been so enjoyable. Always a joy to see various birds, otters and of course chippy the chipmunk eagerly looking for a snack. Don't be surprised to see Chippy looking in the window waiting for you to give him a few peanuts. He's more than happy to take them from your hand. Loved taking out the kayaks and even attempted the stand up paddleboard. The inlet is calm and clear and fairly shallow. Be sure to bring your water shoes!
The cottage is super clean and has all the modern touches for a cottage like great internet, Netflix, satellite, dishwasher and washing machine. The owner was quick to respond to any questions I had. I would love to rent again someday!

Our family just had the most wonderful stay at the Bruce Retreat! The cottage sits on the water and has everything you need to enjoy and relax. We loved that the cottage had its own kayaks and we liked the fire pit in the evening. The cottage was clean and inviting, and had so much space for our family to enjoy. The games and toys for our kids to use was an added bonus! What a great location and so much privacy! We can't wait to visit again soon!
