Description du bord de l'eau et activités proches
The stairs to the beach are approximately 450 ft from the property. The horseshoe-shaped bay has a secluded feel since little or no development is visible from most vantage points. Local cottages are on a forested bluff overlooking the lake and thus the beach feels pristine and undeveloped.
Even on the most beautiful days of summer the beach has few people by comparison to other sandy beaches in the area and is almost exclusively used by the local community of cottagers. The water in the area is clean and unpolluted and has never had high levels of bacteria since there are no creeks or waterways entering the lake along this bay.
The broader area is loaded with attractions from boutique shopping, restaurants, and theatre, to golfing, sailing, trail riding, hiking and fishing. Kincardine itself is home to the Bluewater Theatre Festival and frequently hosts other cultural events such as the Scottish Games. The town hosts a weekly flea market in Victoria Park as well as an organic/local food farmer's market. The marina in Kincardine is bustling in the summer months with its beautiful dunes, boardwalks and beaches accommodating swimmers, sunbathers, cyclists, and beach volleyball.
After a day at the beach families can enjoy the Scottish parade on Saturday evenings where all are invited to march along and perhaps get an ice cream cone along the way at the roadside stand. Families can also watch as the lone piper 'pipes down the sun' from the historic lighthouse.
There is a conservation area with walking and cycling trails located approx 200m up the road from the cottage and Inverhuron provincial park is 8 mins away with plenty more trails with unique dune topography. The Saugeen River is approximately 1/2 hr away and there are canoe and kayak rentals and pick-up service for those who wish to paddle the river.

Règlement de la maison
Renters must ensure the place is left clean and tidy. The owner is there between renters to ensure the place is kept to a high standard of cleanliness before the next party arrives. New renters are asked to submit a $200 cheque post-dated to the last day of their stay to offset costs if the place is damaged beyond ordinary wear and tear or left uncleaned -- please be assured that it has never yet been necessary to use the deposit and it has always been returned to the renter when they vacate the premises. Return renters are not asked for a damage deposit.
Deposits are non-refundable unless we are able to fill the cancelled period, in which case a partial refund may be provided.
