This all season, waterfront, executive, country home faces westward over the lake to tree covered, pristine sand dunes. The house is nestled amongst majestic 150 year old trees and is located just off the oldest road in Ontario. A large treed area across the road from the house complete with marshy inlets and historic 19th century relics is excellent for walking, birdwatching, fishing, biking, paint-balling or birdwatching. There is a major 40km bike trail by the cottage which goes to Picton. Located in scenic Ameliasburg, in Prince Edward County, Ontario, the fully furnished home is spacious and cozy. The lakefront on the property is ideal for families and children, and also has the atmosphere for a girls weekend, small corporate retreat or a romantic getaway.

There is a large 20 by 24 foot living room with cathedral ceiling and large stone fireplace, a six person dining room, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, stove with oven and microwave.

Relax and listen to the rustling leaves as a warm wind gently blows over your body. Sip a cocktail at the water's edge as the sun slowly sets over the water and dunes. Later, have a campfire in the firepit, bask in the hot tub, listen to the stereo, watch a movie, sing karaoke or play pool.

This home is completely self sufficient with linens, bedding and supplies provided. All you have to do is just bring your bathing suits and camera.
In the morning, the first thing you will notice is the singing of the birds. In August, sit in the hot tub and watch stars fall from the milky way. In fall and winter, build a warm fire in the stone fireplace and curl up with a good book and a glass of local wine. Great in winter too - cozy, skiing and snowboarding nearby.

Prince Edward County is unique. It has everything. It has beaches, golf courses, wineries, birdwatching, hiking, lots and lots of history and heritage (the cottage is located just off the oldest road in Ontario and there was a fort from the war of 1812 just around the corner from my cottage), lots of cool stores and funky restaurants and the cottage itself is very homey and relaxing. A couple of interesting facts about the County:
- it has 800 kilometres of scenic coastline
- Sandbanks Provincial Parks is home to the world's largest freshwater sand dunes
- Prince edward County is an an emerging epi-centre for new world wines with over 20 wineries and more coming
- it has lots of heritage and was home to United Empire Loyalists and Sir John A Macdonald
- Presquile Provincial Park near the cottage is one of North America premier birdwatching sites, especially waterfowl.
- Battawa ski hill which is neaby was founded by the Batta family who created a global empire making shoes. Battawa has a reputation as a small but very good place to ski and snowboard.
You are close to many things and it is easy to get to from the 401. You will not be bored at my cottage.
Thanks for the great cottage experience! We loved our stay here! What a beautiful area! Thanks
We rented the Alexander for a weekend getaway with some friends for my husband's 30th birthday. The cottage was beautiful, had everything we needed, and was very comfortable. I loved the fireplace in the living room and the high ceilings. We all agreed that we would rent the cottage again in the future. Thanks again!
As we here were in winter time, we were spending more time inside the cottage then staying outdoor. Although from what we observer, it should be a great place in summer! We had a few families getting together, and it was enough room in the cottage. It was a bit chilly inside the house when we arrived, but the temperature raised quickly and we didn't feel any discomfort. Every room was supplied with extra blankets, and it was very warm and comfortable to sleep. Big kitchen with the extra dining area, all appliances and washer/drier made us feel like home. Huge living room with the old-fashioned fireplace was out favorite place in the evening. Nice extras such us WiFi, home theater, infrared sauna and a hot tub added a lot to the entertainment. All house rules and FAQs were nicely documented and presented upfront. Overall - I would recommend it to a friend! Ah, one more thing - you get a big bang for your dollars as a rental price is very competitive.
We had a fantastic time at this cottage during new years. The cottage is very roomy with lots of places to sleep, eat and relax. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a vacation away from home!
We enjoyed using the hot tub at night to relax and the fireplace to get cozy. The game room was perfect for some friendly ping pong.
We will definitely be back!
We were looking for a cottage in PEC to tour the local wineries and have a reunion of friends. The cottage was well equipped with everything you would ever need for a weekend or week away. The hot tub was a nice way to wind down at the end of the day. I enjoyed having a large dining room table to accomodate all of us. The local area is beautiful in the fall and the wineries were amazing. We got to witness one of the nicest sunsets ever over the lake. We did not use the fireplace or fire pit but they would have been nice. Looking forward to returning to this cottage in the future.
Great place to stay..good room sizes..excellent amenities...amazing place to spend long weekends/vacation times with friends and family.
Definately would recommend
Big cottage with room enough to comfortably sleep 6-8. We had a great weekend, visiting nearby wineries, BBQing great food, and relaxing in the hot-tub. We went in March, so the price was easily affordable considering our large group.
