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. 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'.

Amazing stay at the Bruce Retreat. This was our 1st time to Tobermory and our 1st time renting a private home. The pictures of this place don't do it justice.. The loft room with windows in every direction of views of lake and the woods was by far my favourite. So hard to get out of bed with those stunning views. We are a host famiky to students from Belgium and Spain this year so we thought we would head to Tobermory to show them some of Canada's true beauty. Tobermory certainly was stunning. Although I ended up with pneumonia right before our trip we still made the best of our adventure. This cottage had absolutely everything you could think of. Tons of games for the kids inside and out, fire pit, kayaks that although it was rather cold the kids were determined to use them. LOL they lasted 5 mins in the cold but what a great touch. The hammock, dock with chairs, the bird feeders. They even had little dog dishes which we didn't need but was impressed that every little detail to make anyone's stay wasn't missed
This was such a relaxing, and a truly an amazing weekend away as a family.
The hosts were just fantastic. We can't wait to come back and visit again. Thank you Janet for all your kindness.
Oh and it was pretty cool that we saw a black bear cross in front of our car while trying to find our cottage...

Hi Jenn and family. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank-you so much for the kind words about our cottage. We would love to host you again should you make it back to Tobermory! Janet and Chris

What a wonderful location and beautiful cottage. There were 5 adult ladies staying for 4 days, and we loved every moment of it. The cottage was very spacious, and well furnished and we loved all the windows with the great view of the water. The kayaks were very fun to use, and very easy to get into the water.
Thank you again Janet and Chris for the wonderful memories myself and family now have from staying at The Bruce Retreat!
I would highly recommend The Bruce Retreat for your vacation destination!

We had a wonderful stay at the Bruce Retreat! I would highly recommend it to anyone. I have rented many cottages/houses throughout Canada and this is the first time I have been pleasantly surprised upon arrival. This cottage was way nicer than anticipated, the photos do not do it true justice. You feel like you are outside the whole time because of all the big beautiful windows! There are multiple areas for sitting outside which we loved! Even tho there are neighbors close by the cottage feels secluded and tranquil. The owners were wonderful to deal with. We are already talking about renting this place again in the future...I would vacation there again just to stay at this cottage!

Thank you so much for your kind words Amelia. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, and would welcome you back anytime. Janet and Chris

We enjoyed a great week at the Bruce Retreat! We appreciated that everything was as expected according to the photos and the information provided by Janet. The cottage was nice and clean on arrival, and it has beautiful, big windows - and lots of them! We loved having a dishwasher, washer/dryer and strong wifi, and outside we loved the firepit, hammock and kayaks. The cottage is located close to all the Tobermory attractions you might want to take in. We definitely recommend the Bruce Retreat for a relaxing family holiday.

Highly recommend a stay at the beautiful Bruce Retreat. The Tobermory area is stunning and we were grateful every day to return to such a tranquil and comfortable setting after our day outings. The cottage is equipt with everything you need including two kayaks, and lots of wildlife nearby. We saw some wild turkeys, lots of chipmunks and a beautiful blue heron. Janet is lovely to deal with and quick at answering any questions.
