Tamarack is situated close to the lake cliff edge, next to a ravine resulting in a spectacular view of the lake from the living room. The cottage is in quite a natural country setting with trees, open sunny lawns, tall grasses and wild vegetation such as Dog Wood and Sumac. A few years ago I had about an 8 foot spruce tree moved to the lot which must be about 18 feet high now. This tree is at the east end of the lot affording a nice scene with its drooping bows all the way to the ground.
The kitchen has a large English, oak drawleaf table and six chairs. There is a large leaded window facing east, and 3 huge windows facing north. There is an electric stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster. Hot and cold water on tap. There are dishes, pots and pans, cutlery, tea towels, dish towels, tea kettle and thermos tea pot. There is a double stainless steel sink and oak cupboards. There is NO barbeque.
There is a modern flush toilet, and sink. There is a ball and claw bathtub with shower and wrap around shower curtain. Of course there is hot and cold water. Electric baseboard heaters throughout the cottage can heat the cottage nicely but in cold weather they might not be enough in which case you would use the modern wood stove as well. It is “red” enamel, with a window in the door that gives you a good view of the fire, This stove can really belt the heat out, and is like a fireplace. Wood is supplied.
There is a TV, VCR, CD player and DVD player in the living room and FM and AM radio in the kitchen and now also a radio in the larger bedroom. The TV is provided for use with the electronic devices. There is NO TV reception.
The cottage is about 3 or 4 minutes from Bayfield. Bayfield is about an hour and 15 minutes north west of London between Grand Bend and Goderich on Lake Huron. I think of it as a smaller version of Niagara On The Lake...granted a lot smaller, but it has its own special charm. There are few sidewalks if any but instead grassy areas and lots of trees. Many of the homes and cottages have retained their 30's quaint look.
There is a main street shopping area with lovely shops, excellent restaurants and two lovely 1800's Inns...The Albion and The Little Inn. Both of these wonderful old time establishments have double decker verandas that look like they are from a western movie set.
I dine in nearly all the restaurants, but The Albion,The Little Inn, The Docks are my favorites as well as The Black Dog (beside the Albion), that’s a must too.
Some have musicians from time to time. When my lady and I go to the Little Inn to dine, we start by having our drinks in the parlor before moving into the dining room, a very special place, The Little Inn.
There is also a restaurant with deck overlooking the harbor. This is located on the north side of the bridge. I love the deck there on a nice summer day when I sit there with my beer in a mug that has been chilled in the freezer and look down on the boats. It’s then I feel that all is right with the world. I usually go there at 3 after having just finished checking the cottage cleaning between renters.
There is a lovely harbor filled with boats and a wharf on the south side that you can walk out on and several public beaches.
