About Phil English

We grew up in rural Ontario, spent most of our married lives in urban settings in Canada, and now live in Mexico doing Mission work.

Phil English purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Phil English chose Lion's Head

We made Lakewood our home because we were looking for a place on the Bruce Peninsula, moving into the area for work. We have enjoyed our time there and hope you enjoy this quiet retreat near the attractions of the Bruce Peninsula as much as we have.

What makes this cottage unique

At the Lakewood property you can enjoy a well maintained home in quiet surroundings with trees all around. With a large deck off the back and a small front deck, this comfortable house is a great place to spend most of your time in a Quiet Retreat or as a home base to go out and experience the Adventures of the Bruce Peninsula.

Fantastic First Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time the girls and I rented a cottage and the experience was absolutely wonderful! Everything was clean and cozy and we had no issues. The owners had provided clear instructions and were very accommodating! Would definitely recommend this place and I would even rent it again! Thank you for a fantastic experience.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 6 days at this beautiful cottage. Very comfortable in a peaceful location. Many walking trails nearby including the one close by around the inland lake. The cottage is very well equipped..the only thing we had to get was food and there already were some condiments in fridge and cupboards with a note saying to help ourselves. Phil replied to all my emails promptly and so did Carol, the property manager. There is a very good collection of Dvd's, which came in handy during the evening. Beautiful front and back decks where you can sit and relax and read. Very close to shopping and convenience stores by car. We spent time in Tobermory where we took the cruise to Flower Pot Island and near Lion's Head, we hiked on the Bruce Trail. So many activities to choose from. I would definitely rent this cottage again!

Perfect for young families

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for families. We have been back two years in a row. The location is ideal - close to a family-friendly beach on Lake Huron and a terrific launching off point for hiking the Bruce Trail. There are also trails in the neighbor that are perfect for shorter walks and bike rides. The house itself is clean and comfortable. Our 3-year-old daughter most loves that there are some toys (large legos) and books and because they are "new," they are more exciting to her than the toys and books we brought with us.

Thank you for making me and my family feel at home!!

The property was clean and very well maintained and organized.

Anything you wanted or needed was there.

Any questions or issues I had were immediately addressed in a polite and professional manner.

The rent was a very fair price and I am overall very satisfied.

When our stay was over I received my deposit back in a timely manner.

Thank you again for making us feel at home!

The HOME AWAY is simple and straight-forward site where I could find all of the information that I was looking for.

Our experience has been great; I will definitely reconsider this property for future vacations and strongly recommend it to all.

Amal, Tarek and Iman
