Bayfield cottage description

The Bailiwick is a Victorian style residence with an outstanding vacation home layout. Our guests never want to miss the boutiques, shops and galleries. The inns, pubs and restaurants offer everything from casual to fine dining (all within a 10 – 15 minute walk).
We enjoy the best sunsets in Canada (according to National Geographic) and the Bayfield River is home to a commercial fishery (with a fresh lake fish market) and an ever changing collection of luxury yachts.
Dr. Beaches “Top 5 list of Great Lakes beaches” has designated Bayfield as # 4 on the list. Bayfield is Blue Flag designated for its environmental quality. Among the criteria he considers for beach rankings are safety, water quality, sand quality and beach area services. Bayfield’s citation, in part reads: “There are amenities close to the beach, and crowds are never a concern at this remote beach. The sandy beach grades into cobbles offshore.
There is much to discover in Huron County including Goderich (one of the prettiest towns in Canada), popular summer theatres and some exceptional golf courses, all a short drive away.
Bayfield is colourful in autumn and beautiful in winter. We enjoy our off season stays with friends and family close to the fire and sometimes, a quiet read or a classic movie. For the more adventurous snowmobiling, cross country skiing and tobogganing are all within easy striking distance.
Walking – the residents and visitors to the village walk everywhere all the time – beaches, village streets, rivers and trails and in all seasons. Bayfield is a very friendly family place reminiscent of an earlier time.

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  Why the Owner Chose Bayfield:
                  Just one visit to the historic village of Bayfield and we were completely charmed. By the next summer Dana and I had purchased our lakefront lots and the plans for Bailiwick were taking shape.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The kitchen/bistro and gathering room open to a 17’ 6” pine panel & beam cathedral ceiling with a Palladian window wall overlooking the deck and Lake Huron. Other features include a reclaimed brick wood burning fireplace, a creative kitchen design with a peninsula stool bar, pine floors, two bedrooms and a full bath on the main floor and two bedrooms (including the loft bedroom) and a 3 piece bath on the second floor. The open stair from the entry way leads to the lower level laundry.
