About the owner: We live in Georgian Bay and part time at the cottage, so it's fully furnished and has all the comforts of home! I'm an artist, so the cottage is my art gallery as well. We love sharing our space with people who are travelling, or just want to enjoy the quiet of the country holiday, since we appreciate the same when we are here.
