About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Beautiful, contemporary waterfront property sits atop the bluff overlooking Lake Huron. Stairs down the hill take you to the sandy beach where you can walk for miles and enjoy the refreshing waters of Lake Huron. Relax on the expansive deck while watching the famous Lake Huron sunsets or soak in the 7-person hot tub while gazing at the star-filled sky. Huge lot provides great space for badminton, croquet and family soccer matches. Two-person adirondack chair on the bluff provides an amazing viewpoint that must be experienced. Inside, this clean and new cottage (first occupied in 2010) offers 3 bedrooms plus a loft, two full bathrooms (one with jacuzzi tub) and a basement with lots of toys, mini-stick area and more to keep the kids occupied while you prepare dinner in the fully equipped kitchen with family table for eight overlooking the lake. On cooler nights you can enjoy the two-sided limestone fireplace as you lounge in the comfortable living room - perfect for immersing yourself in a great novel. Nearby you can enjoy the beach side towns of Goderich or Kincardine in either direction with their summer festivals, weekend markets and excellent restaurants. An 80-minute, easy drive to Stratford takes you to world class theater where a day trip for a matinee and supper can still have you back on your deck for another perfect sunset in the evening. Closer by, a 40 minute drive to Blythe offers additional theater options.

About David

With three young boys we are a well-travelled family that appreciates a great rental property and the amenities it takes to make a memorable vacation.

David purchased this cottage in 2010

Why David chose Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh

We were immediately struck by the private, expansive lot and the gorgeous views of Lake Huron. After looking at cottages in the area for over three years we knew this was the 'one' as soon as we stepped inside. We especially liked the idea of a large lot where the kids could run around. We also loved that it was modern and contemporary, yet still cottage/chalet-like and did not feel like a 'house' which happened to be by the lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Our favorite cottage activities include sea glass hunting along the beach (you will see our impressive collection on the kitchen counter), marshmallow roasting on a beach-side bonfire and boogie boarding in the Lake Huron waves. We also appreciate a short drive for a movie, go karting or miniature golf when we need a diversion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your cottage - a great place! We thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the lake, going for walks, playing bocce ball and resting in the hot tub. Thanks again.

A beautiful October week.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Bluff Lane! The cottage is beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen and bathroom. All of the sitting areas were well designed for comfort and view. All of the appliances were in great shape and easy to use. Even the small bistro set on the front porch was comfortable for reading every morning.

The hot tub was so wonderful and easy to get into once we figured it out! Lol

Every afternoon sitting on the back deck was delightful. The stairs to the beach were challenging ... but David had told us that at the very beginning. The water was cool but it was a lovely place to walk. The beach road also provided a nice walking area.

All in all ... it was an excellent week with many small towns near by to explore.

My wife and I had a wonderful two weeks at bluff lane . It was very private and felt like you were away but Goderich and Kincardine were very close if you needed anything or wanted to go out for dinner etc.The sunsets were amazing and great to watch from the hot tub. Dave was a pleasure to deal with . We enjoyed it so much we are now looking at purchasing our own cottage in the area .

A Great Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

A well equipped comfortable modern cottage. The setting is idyllic with uninterrupted views out to the Lake and magnificent sunsets. Plenty of toys available for children and a very relaxing hot tub in the garden. The owner was very attentive and easy to communicate with - would definitely recommend to others.

Beautiful, Modern and Well Equipped Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blufflane. The cottage was as described - clean and modern in a beautiful setting. Blufflane itself was amazing - beautiful views of the lake, easy access to the beach, stars at night and wildlife (fox and deer) sightings.

We were also very impressed with the cottage. The AC worked well. The washer, dryer, dishwasher and BBQ, TV, hot tub were all easy to operate and added to the ease of our stay. The cottage was well equipped with essentials like sundries, towels and bedding, as well as a few nonessentials (like wine and chocolates) that were were welcomed to enjoy. Our host was warm, easy to contact and made the transaction simple.

We would gladly stay again and would recommend it highly.
