65 acres to yourself in lovely Prince Edward County - Ontario's up & coming wine region and home to Sandbanks Provincial Park. Enjoy a comfy 3 bed country cottage, hikes in forest, 10 wineries less than 10 minutes away!
A partially newly renovated country-chic cottage with two bathrooms, king size bed in the master suite, queen bed in the second bedroom and daybed (that can be pulled out to a queen) in the downstairs den. Full size dining room, fully equipped kitchen and cozy new wood burning stove with ready cut wood in living area.
Enjoy the sunrise on 1 of 2 decks, watch the sunset from the second. The perfect country getaway - whether you want to curl up and read, explore the great outdoors in private, or enjoy all The County has to offer.
**Please note the main floor and downstairs bathroom are still under renovation but should not impede your stay at all. The downstairs bathroom is also under renovation and is very rustic! The upstairs is completely newly renovated. The back deck is also being rebuilt which is expected to be done summer 2018. There's a side deck set up with furniture, a BBQ and cushions/pillows for your use and comfort. **
Sleep in and wake up with the sun. Enjoy your morning cup and let the day melt away. Perhaps a hike through the forest? Hang out by the creek or on the hammock? Take a walk to the beaver pond, play catch, kick a ball, enjoy the great outdoors. Bike ride to nearby wineries (more than 10 within 5km) or to nearby North Beach on Lake Ontario and the charm of the Village of Wellington (even Prince Charles came here recently). Or discover your own little secret part of The County - the possibilities are endless.
Interaction with guests
As much or as little as you like. We won't be around during your stay but are always available via message or phone. We'll offer plenty of tips and assistance to make your time away from home as comfortable and memorable as possible.
Other things to note
If you want to explore all the property has to offer, best to bring a pair of rubber boots. Bug spray and sunscreen are a safe bet if you're going to be outside for awhile. There are 4 bikes for your use.
We have a seasonal provincial park pass at the cottage for access to nearby Sandbanks, North Beach and Presquile Parks valid from Apr-Nov.
Our cottage is old and quaint. The upstairs is fully renovated but the main floor and deck are still being worked on. We ask for your understanding while we improve our 1872 farmhouse! We are providing a quiet, fun and relaxing cottage away from it all.
Note - Every autumn the nearby wineries utilize bird bangers to deter the bird from eating the grapes. This is necessary but annoying and totally out of our control. The cannons go off sparingly from 7am-8pm from Sep-Oct.
The big rule is no smoking in the house (cans outside on the decks). Beyond that - be kind, respect the property and enjoy yourself. Small, house trained pets are welcome but no big dogs please as we've just recently installed new hardwood floors. Also dogs must stay in the back of the property and not near our neighbour as they are sensitive about dogs in their yard. Happy to have children but please bring baby gates (we have dishes, booster).
Please remember this is a country home which is different than being in the city so please be gentle on our septic system and well usage.
Also please put everything back when you leave.
We are a fun and adventurous family. We've traveled the globe - from India, Spain, Lithuania, Jamaica to Vietnam and Hong Kong.
As a family we like to hike, bike, swim, and explore. As hosts we try to extend some of our thoughtfulness and creativity to your stay and as guests we are always courteous, organized and responsible.
