Welcome to Bay Beach Hideaway, a lovely century home in the heart of Crystal beach, located on the historic chautauqua circles. Our quiet character filled neighbourhood is only a few short minutes walk to the beach and all of the shops and services of Crystal Beach, but just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the cottage. Relax on your porch, or in your private backyard or take one of the cottage bicycles out to explore the neighbourhood, the Friendship cycling trail or the quaint town of Ridgeway. When first exploring your two story home you will be surprised by the light and the spacious accommodation. High ceilings, large rooms and windows everywhere.

Our quiet character filled neighbourhood is only a few short minutes walk to the beach and all of the shops and services of Crystal Beach, but just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the cottage. Relax on your porch, or in your private backyard or take one of the cottage bicycles out to explore the neighbourhood, the Friendship cycling trail or the quaint town of Ridgeway. When first exploring your two story home you will be surprised by the light and the spacious accommodation. High ceilings, large rooms and windows everywhere. The main floor features a living area with a stone gas fireplace and beautiful original wooden floors with a separate dining area. Lots of room to spread out, relax, chat or play board games. The kitchen is bright and a joy to work in. Three bedrooms, each with its own unique style, gives everyone their own special place. The main floor bedroom is conveniently located steps from a full bathroom with shower. Upstairs, the 'Muskoka room' and the open concept master bedroom share the second story with another spacious living/entertainment area and a surprisingly large four piece bathroom featuring a separate shower and large jacuzzi tub. There is also a separate laundry room with a front loading washer and gas dryer. The house is shaded by two majestic maple trees, one at the front and one at the back. These serve, along with cross breezes through every room, to keep the house cool and comfortable on the hottest of Summer days. A large airconditioner is there to help if a real heat wave sets in. The fully fenced back yard features a very private patio with a dining area, a pergola with outdoor bar, a cozy fire table and a large BBQ. The wraparound front porch is another favourite place where one, or all, can sit, dine, chat or just watch the world go by. We love our time at Bay Beach Hideaway and want to make sure you will as well. One of the charms of our neighbourhood is the healthy mix of permanent residents and vacationers. It is a true beach town and folks are friendly, relaxed and will meet you with a smile. Our neighbours are our friends, they are wonderful people and we require that you will respect them and keep noise to a minimum in the evenings.More
