About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

1500 square foot home, 3 bedrooms with king beds all with private ensuites

The George Gordon Cabin is located in the downtown core of Penetanguishene, making it easy access to many of the local popular destinations. Only a short walk from the cabin and you're walking along one of our beautiful pathways hugging the shore of the harbour, or perhaps take a stroll on the beach looking out at Penetanguishene Harbour. Its an easy walk to our very popular afternoon or evening 30 Thousand Island cruise on the Georgian Queen. If you choose a more adventurous walk, keep going along the path into the woods for another 30 km, a very popular route for walking or bicycling.
Our 1825 Log Cabin, the first home in Penetanguishene has just finished two years of extensive renovations and is finally ready to be enjoyed once again. We have designed an open concept main floor exposing the original log walls of the cabin. All of the hardwood floors in the cabin are wood that was removed during the renovation and reused on the floors to create an amazing and truly authentic feel. The cabin has been decorated with an assortment of both vintage and new furnishings, giving it a great eclectic feel. The original stone fireplace still stands in the living area, and has been upgraded to gas for more modern convenience.
The kitchen has been equipped with fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave and a large farmers sink.
It is very easy to work in this kitchen and it has been equipped with pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and glasses for 6. There is a coffee maker, toaster and outdoor BBQ.
Our three suites upstairs all have private 3 piece en suites, one of our suites also has a claw foot tub. They have flat screen televisions, hair blower, wireless internet, ceiling fans and electric fireplaces. All of our beds in the suites are kingsize with memory foams for ultimate comfort and are draped in 100% cotton sheets and all have duvet's for warmth and coziness.
There is a covered wrap around verandah and a patio with adirondak chairs and a dining table outside at the back of the house for your enjoyment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We were married in the local church almost 40 years ago and after being away from town for most of that time, we moved back to Penetanguishene about 8 years ago after purchasing our 1859 Heritage Home. After extensive renovations to the house, we have been running a B&B, Georgian Terrace Guest House for the past 6 years. We have truly enjoyed meeting the wonderful guests who we have stayed with us and when the house next door came up for sale, we loved the heritage of the home and felt very strong about preserving and restoring the house back to a cabin. We worked very hard for over two years on the cabin and are very proud with what we've accomplished with our renovation. We hope you like it too.

Why the Owner Chose Penetanguishene, ON, Canada:
This property gives you all of the comforts of home but because of the age and history of the cabin, you can't replicate the amazing atmosphere of yesterday, the moment you step through the door.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
How often do you have the opportunity to snuggle up in front of a fireplace with a coffee and read a book or fall asleep in a king size bed for the night in an 1825 log cabin?
