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.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• $4,980 in property taxes (2011)
• 1,800 square feet
• 8-person hot tub
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
• 2-car garage
• 1 outdoor hammock
• 1 stone fireplace

2 Bedrooms. In a cottage? For $1.2 million? ha ha ha ha…
Where’s the privacy? For $1.8 million I think I’d want more distance between my neighbours.
This place is worth 800-900 tops, whoever buys this for 1.2M is a total sucker!
I thoroughly enjoyed the pictures with the cats in them.
Beautiful water views and the exterior is nice–but the interior is awful, and it does seem to feel (from the photos shown) more like the suburbs with all the cottages next door and across the street.
Glad to have my pool in the backyard–10 min home from work to my ‘cottage’, with no travel headaches, additional expense and upkeep, and seemingly more private than this.
$1.2 for that???? Someone’s on drugs.
