Welcome to The Bruce Retreat!

We are located on the sheltered inlet of Long Bay on Lake Huron in Tobermory. Our guests can enjoy the calm and warmer waters of the inlet; great for swimming, fishing, kayaking and kids of all ages. The cottage is nestled among natural forest on almost an acre of land, providing a private and peaceful vacation.

Finding a spot to sit and enjoy the view is very easy in our cottage! The sun-room, which faces the lake, consists entirely of windows and is furnished with comfortable seating. There is a large table to enjoy one of our many games or puzzles, or curl up and enjoy a book while listening to the sounds of the birds and water. The sun-room is also an excellent place to watch the sunset.

A large 4 window with 2 slider doors leads out to the large fully covered porch which also has a beautiful view of the lake. This area is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee, watch the birds or enjoy the outdoors with shelter from the sun. For the 2020 season we added a fully screened-in area off the sliding doors, extending your outdoor time with a bug free experience. There is also a 2-tier deck at the back of the cottage which is accessible from the sun-room or family room. This is also a beautiful place to sit to enjoy a view of the forested areas that surround the cottage or to catch some rays.

The main part of the cottage consists of an open concept kitchen, dining area, and large family room with a beautiful field stone fireplace. This area opens to the sun-room with over-sized French doors, each flanked with a large window. The openness and airiness of the cottage give new meaning to 'bringing the outdoors in'.

Our stay at The Bruce Retreat was just that a retreat! So relaxing. Though this was a hot, humid week, the cottage had plenty of cooling fans to keep things comfortable. We loved the use of the kayaks and the shallow and warm water of the bay was a delight! You can almost WALK out into the middle of the bay. Water shoes or crocs are a definite must, though with the rocky bottom. It was great to know that we could also be in and out of town in mere minutes. We would love to come back to this little piece of heaven!

Simply Wonderful! The Bruce Retreat is total relaxation. Rooms with a view to drool over. This cottage is full of windows making it feel like heaven on earth. The peace and tranquility of the area can be experienced here. The cottage is open and airy during the day and so cozy and warm in the evening. Plenty of room to for a family to hang out together and enjoy the sights of the Bruce Peninsula. Morning coffee by the water has never been so enjoyable. Always a joy to see various birds, otters and of course chippy the chipmunk eagerly looking for a snack. Don't be surprised to see Chippy looking in the window waiting for you to give him a few peanuts. He's more than happy to take them from your hand. Loved taking out the kayaks and even attempted the stand up paddleboard. The inlet is calm and clear and fairly shallow. Be sure to bring your water shoes!
The cottage is super clean and has all the modern touches for a cottage like great internet, Netflix, satellite, dishwasher and washing machine. The owner was quick to respond to any questions I had. I would love to rent again someday!

Our family just had the most wonderful stay at the Bruce Retreat! The cottage sits on the water and has everything you need to enjoy and relax. We loved that the cottage had its own kayaks and we liked the fire pit in the evening. The cottage was clean and inviting, and had so much space for our family to enjoy. The games and toys for our kids to use was an added bonus! What a great location and so much privacy! We can't wait to visit again soon!

Loved The Bruce Retreat! It is in a great location and just feels peaceful! A spacious cottage that is very comfy. Beautiful sunsets, nice calm inlet for swimming or kayaking, fully stocked kitchen & Netflix! We didn't want for anything! We had never been to that part of Ontario and found there was lots to do, from hiking the many trails in the area, eating out at the local restaurants, and even some shopping. It was a wonderful getaway and would highly recommend.

As seasoned cottage renters around Tobermory, we can now say that the Bruce Retreat is our favourite! This location is in a beautiful setting with everything you could need both inside and out. The cottage is very clean. The two main bedrooms, with very comfortable queen beds, are spacious with amazing views. The loft bedroom is spectacular and a place to view both the water and the stars while under the covers. The open-concept kitchen has everything needed to prepare any type of meal and cleanup is easy with a very quiet dishwasher. There is plenty of hot water for showers and the washer and dryer are extremely helpful! The spacious rooms allow for different views and separate areas for quiet moments to read or work on a puzzle. The satellite TV allowed us to keep up with the hockey playoffs! Several trips on the kayaks allowed us to explore the inlet. The property is large and private with a long driveway leading to the cottage. That with the two different places to view Warner Bay made for a great walk with our Dachshund who was very happy to be there too! Janet and Chris have ensured that there is something there for everyone. We also had fun with the Ladder Ball! The sturdy bicycles provided another option for checking out the area. Thank you for a wonderful, well-needed vacation. We will definitely return!
