Dear guest(s). I would like to extend a warm invitation to you to consider The Whippoorwill Cottage your cottage destination of choice. My top priority is to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The cottage is centrally located in the beautiful Bruce Peninsula so whether it's hiking the Bruce Trail, swimming at the Lion's Head beach, visiting the many attractions that the area has to offer or simply finding a place to kick back and relax, then Whippoorwill Cottage should be your destination of choice. The cottage is fully winterized so it provides year round accommodation for guests. Due to the unique times we currently live in, I am asking that all guests bring their own bed linens, pillow cases and towels. Blankets, comforters and pillows are provided for you. Please be assured strict cleaning and sanitizing procedures are in place to provide you with a worry free vacation. Thank you Sincerely Brad

There are number of unidentified shipwrecks in Lion’s Head Harbour; the most shallow is a 42-metre long schooner that can be easily seen from a kayak. Looking out from the Lion’s Head Beach you can see Point Hangcliffe, the highest section of this section of the escarpment, and farther along, at the end, you can detect the outline of the famous lion’s head. There is excellent deep water fishing for salmon and trout in the area. Tobermory is a short 30 min drive North where you can discover the beautiful vistas of Mermaid Cove and Little Cove along with many National Parks. The Grotto calls all tourists - it's definitely a must-see! The Bruce Trail is another feature not to be missed. you will find entrances throughout Northern Bruce Peninsula. This trail can be picked up just a few minutes walk from The Whippoorwill Cottage or take a very short drive and park at the Richardson Side Trail. If you are a photographer - Lion's Head trails have the most spectacular places to sit and photograph. Enjoy Lion's Head public beach in the summer. There is also a public access to the water across the street. For great star gazing visit the Lion's Head Observatory. I
