About Nona Snell.
Back in the late 70's I backpacked the area for a trips leadership program and never forgot the incredible water and natural beauty. I spoke about it often, and in 2009, our family came to the Lion's Head area and visited the same areas I remembered. It had not changed at all. This is a step back in time - Tobermory, The National Parks - the hiking, panoramic views and the Grotto - all the same. This house on the street we were staying with friends became available - this origianal owner of the home with one of the very first lots was offered a spot in the retirement home in town and we happened to be in the right place at the right time. It's the only place my husband says he can truely relax! We feel very blessed to be able to own a spot like this - and when we are not there - it is wonderful to share the experience with others!

Why Nona Snell. chose Lion's Head
Our family came to vacation and we fell in love with this spot at Lion's Head and the stunning location and vistas. . I came up here the first time in my early 20's leading back-packing trips for the YMCA and always wanted to come back. You can never forget the water - the color and the clarity. This is a place where you can totally unwind and get away from the routine. So much to do and see - or just sleep, enjoy the water and fresh, clean air. This is paradise for the person who appreciates and respects the beauty of unspoiled nature in the great outdoors.
What makes this House unique
The property is in the area protected as a Unesco World Biosphere. When you walk around the back of the house - it just takes your breath away. It has wonderful, healing energy here. The location is amazing and the town has whatever you need. It is a hidden treasure and a great get-away that we enjoy sharing with others. Safe and simple- to go different directions if you like and meet up again at the end of the day. So much to do and see. When you leave, you will never forget the view- and the great memories made here at the " Lion's Head Getaway".
Great cottage, amazing views!
Great spacious place with amazing views of the Bay! Everything was clean and comfortable, thanks for a great weekend!
This is a slightly quirky, no-frills old cottage — the kind that oozes years of love and personal history — and exactly what you would want for an active stay on the peninsula. You are perched ON a scenic cliff on the Niagara Escarpment (!) with a front door steps from the Bruce Trail. Lion’s Head is sleepy and perfect ...be sure to try Lion’s Head Pub and go down to the lighthouse and hang out on the pebble beach. We didn’t even bother to go up to Tobermory after settling in here...all we wanted to do was enjoy the view, the local hikes, and the firepit overlooking Isthmus Bay. Thank you for the memories, Nona...we hope to be lucky enough to return one day. <3
Thank you Sheri. That’s what the goal is, to provide a place for friends and families to create great memories. I appreciate your review! Nona.
I look forward to seeing your name again. I’m always working on improving the house. 🦁�
Nona’s “Blue Heaven” is truly a slice of heaven. Stunning views. Luxury bed. All the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. Highly recommend this property!
Great Heidi! So happy you enjoyed your stay. It’s an incredible location, meant to be shared 🦁�
Breathtaking views and a cottage that feels like home!!!
Wow! Nona really knows how to care for her guests! We didn’t need anything when we were here - everything was provided! The location is beautiful, and I can’t say enough about the master bedroom and it’s panoramic view of the bay. We enjoyed hiking, fishing (drive about an hour to get a charter), flowerpot island and bonfires on property. Everything you and your family will need from a grill to wine glasses will be here for you! Thank you so much!!!
Thanks, Kate - it sounds like you had a great time. Please come back again - there is really no place like this special spot - with a million dollar view! I appreciate your kind review.

Lion's Head is a beautiful, scenic town with all the amenities. This property is minutes from town up the road on the escarpment overlooking the Isthmus Bay and the Georgian Bay. It is a peaceful setting - where you can pick up the Bruce Trail right out the front door of the house and take a short hike to Lion's Head lookout. This is the first thing we do - you are there in 30 minutes or less, and its an incredible view. This street offers the best location in Lion's Head. The town is central to an assortment of day trips, along with just relaxing at the house overlooking a most memorable view of Isthmus Bay., and on to Georgian Bay. Spend a day in Tobomory, take the ferry to Flowerpot Island, take a sunset sail along the National park coastline, a day at the beaches, hiking, antiquing, mountain-biking, caving, fishing, The National Parks, "The Grotto" is a must, Singing Sands Beach - there is too much to do - gather back at the house for a cook out or a dinner at The Lions Head Inn. Be back before the sunset- nowhere can beat this location and a bonfire to gather around and laugh about the days adventures. Sleep like a rock. Guaranteed - you won't want to leave - so much to see for all ages to enjoy. Come stay and enjoy a friends and family getaway. You wont want to leave!!! Let me know what you are looking to do - and I would be happy to help.
