About Peaceful Peninsula
Our cottage began as two fishermen’s cabins in 1905. Anglers from the USA and Canada came to fish the plentiful waters of Smith’s Bay. Over the years new owners merged the two small cabins into one larger cottage and then in October 2018 we purchased what we now call Peaceful Peninsula. We have completed renovations on every room the 2 bedroom cottage and bunkie which sits 30ft from the main cottage.
Extravagantly large windows in the living room allow you to enjoy 300 degree water views. The spacious deck feels as though you are floating on the bay. Swans and ducks swim right by.
Inside the cottage is light, airy and very functional. It is casual, comfortable and totally stylish.
The master has a dreamy king sized bed where you can take in the amazing sunrises without lifting your head from your pillow.
A large screen smart tv on a motorized lift is perfect on rainy days. Wifi is included.
Our cottage would make a perfect honeymoon destination.
With the main cottage and bunkie there’s room for couples to enjoy a week together yet have some separate space to enjoy.
For families the cottage offers the perfect place to relax and unwind from the business of life taking in the natural beauty all around.
Summer guests will enjoy the long days, warm calm waters, awesome sunrises and sunsets.
Fall guests will enjoy seeing the migrating ducks return to Smith's bay in vast numbers. Last fall there were regularly flocks of 1000 Redheads, Mallards, Goldeneyes, Buffleheads, etc. You will also enjoy the flames flickering in the woodstove, or if you like turn on the radiant in-floor heating newly installed throughout each room of the cottage!
Winter guests will enjoy the quiet beauty of snowfall on the bay with spectacular views, ice skating, cross country skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling.
The cottage is located at the end of a private lane. We love our neighbours and the neighbourhood has many children so please drive very slowly obeying all posted speed limits.
The cottage has a holding tank so water conservation is appreciated. Water is safe to shower with but bottled water is recommended for drinking. We will have some available on arrival.
Please note because we are surrounded by water and nature, bullfrogs sing and the birds will swim right by. The view is ever changing.
The fishing is amazing. Don’t forget to pack a fishing rod and let the kids catch fish right off the dock.
Nice larger towels are provided for showering. We have provided a basket with yellow towels for outdoor use.
