“Memorable stay”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Just like everyone else has said, the cottage is spacious, well-maintained, secluded but close to Singing sands beach and Cyprus Lake. I don't have anything negative to say about this place. We enjoyed the large deck, BBQ, campfire, fully-equipped kitchen, and the cozy interiors.

“Great place for a family getaway”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The cottage location is great, as it is only a few minutes away from great hiking spots along the Bruce Trail, a stroll along the marina in Tobermory and picturesque swimming locations. The cottage itself is well maintained, both outside and inside. Upon arrival, the space was welcoming and clean. We visited on a week when the weather was somewhat cooler so we spent more time than expected at the cottage. It was spacious enough for our group of 9 to gather together in one room, and also spacious enough for everyone to spread out and have some personal quiet time. We enjoyed meals indoors, on the deck, and evenings around the campfire. This cottage is a great place to enjoy the beauty of nature, all the while being spoiled by modern conveniences. We will definitely visit again.

“Awesome Cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is my 2nd time to Dorcas Bay Getaway. Absolutely loved this place!
The owner and his/her family are very friendly and easy going and booking was very easy!
If you're looking for an awesome place to relax in Tobermory, this is one of the best cottages you could find!

“A beautiful well maintained cottage!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We booked this cottage for the Thanksgiving weekend. The cottage is spacious and well maintained with almost all amenities. We had an elder, a toddler, and a young kid in our group. Everyone enjoyed the cottage equally. The kitchen was well equipped with all necessary appliances and utensils. We would definitely like to stay here again for a longer period!!
