Description from owner


Year-round, private, riverfront cottage, steps to Lake Huron!

Idywild Cottage provides a rare opportunity to host large gatherings a mere stone’s throw from the lake.

More information

Sleeps up to 19 people, there is plenty of room for your family and friends to come together in this idyllic, private natural setting.

The space

Nestled beneath the agricultural expanse of Huron County you’ll find Idylwild Cottage, with 450 feet of frontage on the eighteen mile river.

This cozy 5 bedroom cottage is situated in a rolling grassy valley in a landscape of large mature cedars, providing year round privacy and ample outdoor lounging on several acres.

Birch, Willow, Lilac, Ash, Dogwood, Maple and Beech make up the deciduous layers of the canopy here and provide a view of greenery from every window. You’ll love the quiet, privacy and clear starry night skies.

5 minutes to a large lakeside municipal parkland and abandoned baseball diamond, where you’ll enjoy a scenic lookout over lake Huron and make use of public restrooms for days spent at the beach.

A short stroll down a winding road grants you access to a stretch of beautiful, wild and secluded lake Huron shoreline, a favourite beach among locals. Come to swim away the summer days, enjoy bonfires, and gorgeous sunsets, walk or paddle kilometers of natural shoreline and watch storms roll across the water on humid summer nights.
