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 are excited to be adding 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'.

Our group just returned from a week at this wonderful cottage, which we were very reluctant to leave. While the photos on here are great, we were pleasantly surprised at how much bigger and more stunning the cottage is in person. All of the rooms were quite large, and the beds were incredibly comfortable; probably the best sleep I've had in months. There was quite a lot of space for five people, and we enjoyed playing cards in the sunroom while looking out at the lake. A few mornings spent reading beside the quiet shore while watching herring gulls dive-bomb for fish. The sunsets every night were spectacular, the bay was calm (but cool in June, though some of us braved a swim on the last evening :)) Shallow waters in the bay would likely make for friendly swimming for kids. We were treated to calls from white-throated sparrows in the mornings, glimpses of a healthy majestic looking resident red fox, a brave but friendly chippy, and occasional loon calls at night. A great area for star-gazing without many bugs in June, friendly neighbors, and fantastic proximity to Tobermory, as well as all of the beautiful locations the Bruce Peninsula has to offer. As a random aside; the water filtration system at the cottage was amazing. I don't think my hair has ever been so soft :) Chris and Janet were wonderful hosts, and super accomodating to our various requests. We're already missing this dreamy oasis.

Owner response:
Hi Shannon.
Thank-you so much for your very kind review. Chris and I are always so happy to hear our guests have enjoyed the cottage and their stay, and the wildlife and beauty that Tobermory has to offer. We know your stay really came down to the wire, but we are thrilled that restrictions were lifted in time for you to enjoy a get away.
All the best, Janet

Thank you so much for opening your cottage to us. We had a fantastic time with our two small children and our Boxer. The views and hearing the water was so peaceful and serene. Prime location to visit some other local beaches and enjoy a slower pace for a week!
Kayaking on calmer morning and evenings was one of our highlights as well as enjoying a fire to end our evenings! Thank you again and I would highly recommend The Bruce Retreat! We hope to see you again next year!!!

Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful cottage. Our family had a wonderful time. Loved the kayaks and never wanted to get out of bed with the amazing views from the loft.
Even our neurotic city dog turned into a calm cottage dog within hours!! Highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bruce Retreat! This is a beautiful cottage, nestled in the woods right on the shores of Warner Bay. The water is clear and shallow which provided a lovely area to safely enjoy the kayaks and our paddle board. The water was so much calmer here than out in the lake. The cottage has two decks to enjoy the scenic views, a lovely hammock to relax in and a firepit to complete the cottage experience! The furniture and beds and all high quality, and we truly felt like we had all the comforts of home while being surrounded by the peaceful sights and sounds of nature! Thanks so much to Janet and Chris for sharing your beautiful cottage with us! I would highly recommend this cottage!
