THE BRUCE PENINSULA IN THE FALL

Bruce Peninsula in The Fall

Bruce Peninsula in The Fall

LAKE FRANCIS COTTAGES in the Fall. It is a private inland lake. It is very quiet and peaceful. The trees in the fall, dress the lake with a beautiful back drop of colors. Flocks of geese stop in for the evening, before heading to their winter homes. The lake is like a piece of glass, you can canoe along the shores looking for turtles and beavers. It is a really nice time to sit by a fire located at the waters edge. In the distance you can hear the cry of the coyotes. The stars are bright, you can see the Milky Way, the Big Dipper and if you are lucky enough this is the season to possibly see the NORTHERN LIGHTS.Lake Francis Cottages located 10 minutes from Owen Sound, 20 minutes from Sauble Beach and 15 minutes from The Home of Wiarton Willie-Wiarton Ontario. We have created lists of things to do for Owen Sound Tourism, Georgian Bay – Lake Huron vacation destinations!
