Cottage of the Week: $1.2 million for a Georgian Bay cottage with a deck made for sunset gazing
ADDRESS: 1174 Tiny Beaches Road South
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Township of Tiny, Southern Georgian Bay
AGENTS: Gabriele Telfer, Royal LePage In Touch Realty
THE PLACE: This two-bedroom, two-bath cottage is located along the sunset-blessed southern peninsula of Georgian Bay, but its stone landscaping and natural wood interior give it a positively coastal air.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Lots of outdoor space. The sprawling deck is the centre of activity—it leads directly onto a sandy beach and boasts a hammock, an al fresco dining area and an eight-person hot tub. The second deck, off the master bedroom, is quiet and shady.
BIG SELLING POINT: With a population of just over 11,000 people, the Township of Tiny is a great place to get a little privacy. However, should the desire for more excitement arise, Midland is only 15 minutes away (and has a movie theatre for rainy days).
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With only two bedrooms, this isn’t the place for large groups—though the great-room floor could accommodate plenty of foamies and sleeping bags in a pinch.

• 1,800 square feet
