About the property

Gorgeous Sunset Views from Deck, Close To Beaches And Very Private.

This cottage/home is a two story raised bungalow with a wrap around cedar deck, with two porches that overlook the gorgeous lake Huron.. Within this private treed lot, one overlooks the serene sunsets from the cozy privacy of this home. Two wood stoves offer warmth during the spring, fall and winter for this modern, spacious environment. Renters can choose to either to rent the guest room or the entire home (3 bedrooms) during high season for $2.100 per week. We are also willing to rent out the home for $300 a night, minimum 4 nights. This home comfortably sleeps 6 people. Located walking distance to a local beach (kite boarders are welcome), and a drive away from Sauble Beach, Wiarton, the Bruce Peninsula, Bruce Trail and Tobermory (access to ferry to Manitoulin Island available). All amenities are included for use. We look forward to sharing our peaceful space with fellow families and guests! It is our preference to host you. We have recently renovated with new painting and hardwood flooring and expect renters to respect with caution our home and upgrades. Please note: we have 2 cats; some guests are willing to have the cats stay with them, others prefer not to. This is just a forewarning if you are sensitive to animal dander.

About Lydia Foch

We are avid outdoor people and enjoy both all winter and summer activities in our area. Our home is modern, spacious and comfortable for 6 people to be used, families only. We are both working professionals and often away in the summer. We have lived in this house for 13 years, permanent now for 7 years. This area is the most beautiful in Ontario as it is close to the Bruce Peninsula and the Niagara -Bruce Trail; gorgeous trails along the escarpment are just 5 minutes away. We wish for like minded people to enjoy our home. We love the solitude of Oliphant and the friendly people who respect serenity, nature and outdoor sports. Oliphant is kiteboarder haven, which we have yet to learn. Come and enjoy what paradise has to offer.

Lydia Foch purchased this house in 2001

Why Lydia Foch chose South Bruce Peninsula

It is located in a treed lot, very quiet and is private. The home is cedar on the outside and modern bright yellow in the inside. Tastefully decorated and modern facilities. You will love the peace, quiet area and outdoor barbeques and campfires. The location is perfectly suited for outdoor people and is close to anything you need. Our family has a cottage close by where we grew up spending our summers. Lake Huron and Georgian Bay are the Caribbean of Ontario. Lake Huron is warmer and more shallow than Georgian Bay which one accesses via Wiarton.

What makes this house unique

Gorgeous views of the sunset, our home is set back from the road, patio space and a front wrap-around deck. Right side patio is screened for mosquito protection. Ample space on the porch to enjoy your summer evenings. We love the cedar look and the modern, open concept and spacious design inside. We have two wood stoves for the winter. The house is mostly carpeted and laminate flooring. The house has been recently painted in June 2016. We usually plant a vegetable garden which grows mostly lettuce for you to hand pick. You are welcome to use our hammocks to take in all the breathtaking beauty from our home and property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Frissens are exceptionally wonderful people. They enjoyed our home and took great respect of our own personal space. They enjoyed family time, which is what we are pleased to provide and also took great care to keep our house clean and tidy. I recommend the Friessens and I do hope they come back to stay with us. They had to leave early and are proud to be grandparents a day earlier than expected. Please come visit us again, Lydia

Beautiful summer stay on Lake Huron

  • 4 of 5

This vacation home is a beautiful location to enjoy the waters of Lake Huron and be pampered with a great place to stay. This home is where the owners stay when not being rented. Therefore, you will have food in the fridge and clothes, etc. in the closets. While this is not problematic, you realize that you are in someone else's personal space and need to treat it accordingly. We especially enjoyed the campfire pit and trampoline. The living room/dining room are large to have an extended family holiday and have space to "lounge" around. The owners expect that the house is just like you found it. They take pride in having a clean home. We had a fantastic stay!
