Sunset Lakehouse Rules and Guidelines:

By renting this cottage, you have agreed to adhere to the expectations listed below. Please read and ensure a strong understanding by all guests. The #1 rule is to keep the cottage clean and tidy upon checkout.

1) Check-in time: 4:00 p.m sharp. Earlier arrival is subject to a fee. We manage our cottage remotely with 1 outdoor SECURITY SURVEILLANCE. Once arrived the camera is turned off and then on again upon check out. Guests have the right to turn off the system as well but we do ask to have it turned on upon check out to ensure cleaners arrive on time.

2) Arrival Inspection: Please do an inspection of the home upon arrival. If any items are broken or not working at the cottage at time of check-in, please report within 2 hours after arrival. Service times in rural areas are longer than in the city. Advanced notice is more than necessary; especially if related to heat, water or electrical.

3) Accidents in the Cottage: we understand that accidents can happen at the cottage during your rental. If something breaks, please call or email us to inform us of the accident. This will allow us to make arrangements to have the broken item fixed or replaced.

4) Bbq: There is a bbq onsite with propane tanks available. Please be prepared to have them filled or replaced BEFORE using. Some guests have not been consistent in having them filled after use. To make it economical for all guests, we provide the tanks and payment will only be to fill.
NO foreign materials (e.g. wood, charcoal) in the bbq. Bbq grill should be cleaned/brushed after each use when grills are hot. Refills/replacement tanks could be purchased at Hoppy's Gas Bar, Roxy's, Stedmans and Foodland. All located just North on Hwy 6. There is a BBQ lighter/matches in the kitchen island or mantle to start the bbq.

5)Campfires: Please enjoy your recreational fire in the permanent fire pit areas. The zoning in our area allows you to burn outdoors 2 hours before sunrise and 2 hours after sunset.

7) Checkout time: 11:00 AM

8) Ceiling Fans: These items have been provided for your comfort. Please do not leave on and unattended while away from the cottage.

9) Blankets and Towels: GUESTS MUST BRING THEIR OWN blankets and towels. Our laundry facility is not industrial enough to clean all 7 bed sets in 3 hrs before next guests arrive. However, mattress protectors and fitted sheets are provided for all bedding along with 10 pillows with clean pillow cases available. The King size bed is an exception and has a full sheet set with king pillows.
FAQ: If you are travelling from overseas or find it difficult to bring your own towels and blankets, we do offer this service at a fee of $40US/room making it a total of $160. Please ask at time of reservation.

10) Although cleaning fees are included in your booking, we kindly ask you have the cottage in a neat and tidy fashion just as you entered.

16) Heating: The cottage is heated by oil. The temperature can be adjusted manually located in the office.

17) Hydro/Power: You are in a rural area and the electrical power may be interrupted from time to time, and it may stay off a little longer than it would in the city.

Amazing trip
This is a beautiful location, right on the water and close to all the Bruce Peninsula has to offer. The house is also well stocked with recreational boats, marshmallow sticks, firewood, gourmet cooking supplies and more. Hope to come back soon!

Great spot!
Big cottage with lots of room. Nice layout. Interesting shoreline to explore and paddle around although it is not the best for swimming (water shoes are a must). Close to Bruce Penisular NP. Water from the tap has a sulphur smell and taste and we bought jugs of water for drinking in town. Not a fancy, modern, renovated cottage that you would see on Instagram but great for ppl who like things real, down to earth, and lived in (like us).

Great location in Tobermory
This cottage was very spacious and a great place to relax and enjoy nature. It is close enough to town that it was not inconvenient but far enough away that you felt like you were one with nature. Many small animals were around the property. We even had the privilege of seeing a wild turkey family walk buy us on their journey to the lake. Lots of blue jays, butterflies, chipmunks, and rabbits and a turtle were seen on the property. The hot tub was enjoyed by everyone. The water is clear and was warm enough to swim in. The many choices of watercraft were enjoyable also. There were a couple things that would have made it a bit better such as more Tupperware and a better working coffee maker. We figured out how to make it work so it did not cause much of an issue. Also I would highly recommend cutting down the clump of bushes in the front as it needlessly blocks some of the view of the lake, which is so perfectly beautiful. Bring watershoes as the beach is very rocky but so clean and sparkling it didn't mater to us. I would highly recommend.

Stunning Tobermory scenery!
From the first interaction with our host Victoria, we knew we would love the Sunset Lakehouse! Nestled in the woods right on Lake Huron (with the shallow bay having clear turquoise water), you can't beat the location. We loved the kayaks and wake boards, exploring the bay -- the shallow bay keeps out motorboats, so instead you see loons and herons! We enjoyed the firepit, the hot tub, and just sitting on the covered deck or out by the water. Only 20 minutes from Tobermory, we also enjoyed some Bruce Trail hiking and the Singing Sands beach nearby. There was something for everybody in our family from 16 to 80! The time went fast and we would love to come back one day!

Family Getaway
The cottage itself is great for a large family, with lots of room to spread out. The covered porches are welcome if you have rainy days but still want to be outside, and the hot tub is a lovely way to finish each day. The beds are comfortable, and if you are lucky enough to get the King Room, it is a wonderful oasis. The kitchen is well equipped, though as a suggestion to the owner, you need a new coffee maker and less crowded cupboards so the guests have somewhere to put their food. The views of the water are lovely, and it is great for canoeing and kayaking. However, the waters edge is not a great place for children to play or swim, as it is rocky and there is not a safe place to enter the water. There is a lot of standing water on the property, so the bugs can be insane. Best to bring some sort of bug repellant, and lots of afterbite! Overall I would recommend this cottage to families with older children, or a group of adults - if you can settle on who gets the King Bedroom

Cozy heart warming place in a gorgeous location
When we arrived, one feeling that we got from the cottage was “alive”. The sense of aliveness in the cottage, around it, the water and the setting sun, it all felt both relaxing and rejuvenating. The place feels cozy and spacious at the same time. We loved firing the wood burning oven at night, kayaking and paddle boarding before and after our hikes at Lion’s Head and Bruce Peninsula park. Hostess-wise it felt like Victoria was within reach and yet the place felt uniquely ours for the weekend that we spent there. Thank you!
