Our "NotSoTiny Beach House" is a spacious 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, that has a cozy cottage/chalet feel with its pine floors and ceilings. It is only a 100 meter walk to the beach on Georgian Bay! Great location, only 40 mins away to downhill skiing, hiking and many X-country trails nearby. The home is big enough for more than one family, or several couples. Tiny Township boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Ontario, and year round stunning Georgian Bay sunsets.

The space
Always the traveller, rarely the host. But now as a host, in our new-to-us, “NotsoTiny Beach House,” we know what we like and what’s important to make a stay feel like a home away from home.

The Inside Space
When we bought this incredible house, we imagined it full and vibrant with up to 10 guests, with lots of possibilities for individual, couple, or family spaces. With five bedrooms spread out on three levels, 2750 sq ft, and a full bathroom on each floor, there are lots of options! And when you want to be together as a larger group, the main floor is wide open for gathering. The kitchen is well-equipped to make meals and pour drinks, with the cook and bartender right there, part of the action.

Working remotely has been a huge part of our lives the last couple of years, so we purposefully placed the workspace including a desk, desk chair and a 21-inch Dell monitor, looking out a large window towards Georgian Bay. This is the only space that is shared with the large main floor bedroom that has a queen size bed.

The upper floor is home to a cozy queen room and the largest bedroom with a king size bed. This is the room for the early risers as the open “window” to downstairs is an incredible feature that we love for the view, however, it’s not very sound proof!

The lower floor is big and bright, and a walk-out. Two more bedrooms with a queen bed in one and two twin beds in the other, are side by side downstairs. **In the winter months, the downstairs can be quite cold and should be taken into account when booking. We do have space heaters for the bedrooms and extra warm blankets.** There is an open space to come in from the beach, right next to the large laundry area with both a washer and dryer. We would have especially loved this space when our kids were younger! Downstairs also has another seating area for additional space to spread out and a pull-out double futon (bring your own double linens for the futon, if needed). Lots to do both inside and out. Puzzles, books, games, DVDs, (to be used only in the cottage) and of course, Wifi, and access to Netflix or other streaming services on both Smart TVs in the house.

The Outside Space
Have a seat on a Muskoka chair, out on the deck, in the warmer months - a perfect spot to sit with your morning coffee and a good book, listening to the waves and a view to the beach only 100 m away. In the cooler months, you can cozy up inside and be assured that you will still have that sunny view of the water through the huge windows of the great room.

For downhill skiing, Mount St. Louis Moonstone and Horseshoe Resort are just a 40 minute drive away, and Blue Mountain is a 75 minute drive to Collingwood. In fact, Blue Mountain can be seen from the beach, across the bay, on clear days. There are also trails nearby to be explored on foot or on cross country skis or snowshoes.

In the warmer months, it’s only steps to our beach access to go for a swim, a paddle, or to take a lawn chair down to read or watch the amazing Georgian Bay sunsets. If you would like to head to a larger beach, Tiny Township boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Ontario. Our property is closest to the public beaches of Lafontaine Beach and Balm Beach.

When our beach house isn’t being rented, we will be using it as a family, so we, unfortunately, aren’t able to allow pets due to family allergies. If you rent from us, you may notice that the main floor hardwood floors have been scratched by a big dog - the furry friend of a previous owner!

** Best suited for up to 8 adults in the warmer months, or 6 adults in the colder months due to the colder temperatures on the lower floor. Extra person charge for more than 8. Maximum 10 people **

** Tiny Township has a VERY strict 24 hour noise bylaw, making this property best suited for family holidays.
