Welcome to Our Afterthought located across the road from the shores of Georgian Bay on the Bruce Peninsula in the lovely hamlet of Dyer’s Bay, a great place to choose for your vacation getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our cottage is very bright inside and has been newly renovated. The cottage is on a very private lot backing onto the Niagara Escarpment, surrounded by white birch and evergreens.
Our Afterthought cottage is located close to the Bruce Trail, and it is a short walk to some of the best hiking the trail has to offer. The cottage next door is a perennial wildflower garden.
For cyclists, there is a wonderful road that runs from Dyers Bay to Cabot Head lighthouse, winding along the shoreline, with the escarpment looming up to your left.
In the spring and fall, Dyer's Bay is a focus point for birders in the Bruce Peninsula. The Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory records hundreds of migrating birds that cross over this area each spring and fall. Not only birds can be seen in Dyers Bay, but many other creatures can be seen here. Black bears, coyotes, minks, and red squirrels to name a few are also regular visitors in the neighbourhood.
There is a public boat launch a short distance away, giving you easy access to some of the best sport Fishing in Ontario. Swimming, fishing, hiking and relaxing are all available to you in the quiet natural setting.
At night time, sit down at the beach and enjoy a campfire while listening to the water lap against the shore or view the vast amount of stars due to no light pollution or sit in the backyard at the campfire and enjoy the private setting.
