This is where memories are made. Sherwood is a classic Ontario cottage located directly on Lake Huron with some of the world's most stunning sunsets. Cedar panelling throughout completes the traditional feel, but you'll also enjoy every modern amenity, including a fully-equipped chef's kitchen & Starlink high-speed Internet. Spend your days lakeside or in the 20 x 20 screened porch, furnished in Hauser teak. Sleep your best sleep on top-quality mattresses and return home refreshed and revived!

The space
Decorated with vintage Canadian travel posters, Sherwood celebrates Canadiana and the beauty of our wild, vast country. We host only a small number of families each year: ***this is not a high-volume commercial rental***.

Sherwood is situated directly on Lake Huron with due west spectacular sunset views and over 100' of private frontage, with neighbours only on one side. We offer two lakeview decks - one sheltered at the house and the other at the rocky shoreline, both equipped with a total of ten custom-made Muskoka chairs. The 16 x 16 Sunset Deck also features a large canopy umbrella for all-day enjoyment, plus a shoreline firepit.

Our lagoon, located in the Fathom Five National Marine Park, offers both swimming for adults and shallow areas for small children to play while supervised. If you prefer the bigger lake, a short walk or swim will take you to many interesting shoals and swimming areas of varying depths. Snorkelling is particularly good and we are a brief kayak ride (2 kayaks provided) from the 1871 wreck of the Cascaden, which is visible on calm days. Swim shoes are recommended and we do have some available for your use, as well as snorkelling masks, fins and many other water toys for young and old!

The Living Space
The main living area is 36' x 17', open concept and features a compact but well-laid-out kitchen and breakfast bar, table for six and seating area, illuminated by a massive picture window that looks onto Lake Huron. Cozy up by the wood-burning stove and enjoy one of the hundreds of books in our library, listen to your favourite playlist on our bluetooth-enabled sound system, or pick something new from our extensive CD library. You can stream your favourite shows via high-speed Starlink Internet or dive deep into our carefully curated DVD library of classics - both old and new. If you need more diversion, we also have a massive selection of board games for all ages.

Also - because we care - safety equipment on-site includes an AED, fire extinguisher, first-aid kit, smoke and C0 detectors.

The Screened Porch
Just beyond the dining area is a double door leading to the generous 20 x 20 screened porch, panelled in cedar and furnished in top-of-the-line Hauser teak. It Includes an extension table that seats eight comfortably, a very large L-shaped sofa and two club chairs - all recently and beautifully reupholstered. Whether it's a rainy day or you just want to snuggle in, you'll be surrounded by forest and wildlife on three sides. Sit quietly and the hummingbirds will visit. An ideal spot for a relaxed evening of bug-free games and cocktails!

The Kitchen
The cook's kitchen is fully equipped with excellent-quality cookware and everything you need to prepare delicious meals, including a vast array of essentials: spices, serving dishes, glassware (red wine, champagne and cocktail), cookbooks and bar accoutrements. The freezer includes an ice-maker and the beverage fridge is available to host your overflow. Just outside the kitchen door is a large-format Broil King fully-fuelled propane BBQ grill.

The Beds
It's all about the beds: if you don't sleep well, you don't feel well! While we do not provide linens, we have provided top-quality mattresses, all new in 2020. Down mattress-toppers and duvets, as well as excellent down and hypo-allergenic pillows and extra blankets will ensure you get some of the best sleep of your life. The cedar-panelled bedrooms are cottage-level cozy and we have recently redesigned them to offer maximum storage in minimal space, including suitcase shelves and plenty of hooks. The Kid's Room features lots of toys, books and games to keep the young ones entertained!

The Neighbourhood
We are located on a very low-traffic road, making it ideal for after-dinner or early-morning walks. Wildlife abounds, including foxes, mink, porcupines, the occasional fisher and - if you're very lucky - shy black bears. Birdwatching is excellent and we have binoculars and bird books for your use. A Nature Conservancy trail system is a short walk away, and we are a 30-minute bike ride (2 bikes provided) from the Village of Tobermory and 20 minutes' drive to the Grotto, Singing Sands and other local highlights.
