Windward is our century old cottage. New Ownership
It’s located one short block from the beach, the harbour and Pioneer Park, as well as being within walking distance to town. It offers both a claw-footed bathtub of old and a modern walk-in shower and accommodates eight. This century cottage has gone through extensive renovations and is ready for visitors. The new owners welcome you to their Windward Cottage.
Originally built by Captain MacAulay, a lake captain who sailed from the Port of Southampton, located half a block away, Windward continues to offer great lake adventures. Enjoy a large yard for running or tossing a ball, a patio for grilling and a fire pit for camp fires in the evenings. Be it a day full of activity, the beach, or just sitting and enjoying your surrounds from the “North Watch” summer living room, this house offers a great location to enjoy time away from home. From Windward you can hear the waves crashing on the shore of Lake Huron and feel the breezes coming off the lake.
Walk a block to Pioneer Park and use the Captain Spence trail, a walk way from the park to the big Canada flag, to explore the Lake Huron shore, get to the beach or turn the other direction and head to the harbour to see boats sail in at the mouth of the Saugeen River. While you’re down there you can even pick up fresh fish for your dinner at the fish shop.
Southampton’s business district is a few blocks walk and offers a variety of interesting stores and coffee shops, as well as a place to rent kayaks and canoes.
Cap each day off with the beauty of a Southampton sunset and on Fridays hear the piper salute the sun as it sets in the west. So, add your Lake Huron memories to this historic family cottage and share them with us in our guest book.
