Nestled on a shady two-acre lot with over 300 ‘ of private waterfront surrounded by vineyards and farms, Morganshire Glen faces south and offers unobstructed blue water views of Lake Ontario. Watch the sun rise over the famous Sandbanks Provincial Park and be mesmerized by the waves breaking along the 300’ of private waterfront that features a gently sloping limestone shelf that is perfect for wading and swimming.

As you enter this central-hall two-story home, you are greeted by a large living room with cathedral ceilings, pine floors and a collection of unusual artifacts and antiques including an upright Grand Piano. Looking out of the large picture windows, you will be treated to sweeping views of Lake Ontario from almost every room.

For parties over 8, there is a rustic 'bunkie' secluded in the lilacs on the waters edge that sleeps two additional guests who are treated to outstanding views and crashing waves. Featuring a double bed, a tiny kitchen, a screened porch and a private outdoor shower with hot and cold water, It is available for a modest additional charge who just want a romantic place with lots of privacy.

About The Owner

I am a IT Program Manager who loves nature and loves living in the country. I am an avid hiker, soccer and ball hockey player.

I am a patron of the arts and attend the many concerts, theater, TIFF and films that take place in the area and beyond.

Having lived in many countries and currently work in Toronto Ont.

I have two children - my daughter is in medical school in England and son is in high school in Toronto. Both love coming here for holidays.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Prince Edward County

I bought this place because it is only 2 hours from Toronto by car or train and for me the best life of all is living in the country with easy access to the city. What was most appealing about this particular area is that although it is largely rural, it is surprisingly sophisticated with very fine restaurants, a vibrant art, music and literary community all within minutes of my house. Being an avid outdoorsman, my house is located in the country right on Lake Ontario but is very private. When I am standing in front of the house looking at the lake I don't see any other houses or signs of civilization. In three minutes, I can be at a beach at the end of my road where I can walk for a mile and not see another human being .

What makes this house unique

My property faces south so the house gets great light streaming in from the many large windows. Also, the beachfront is a limestone shelf that gradually extends out into the water so you can wade out into the water about 100' before it's over your head. Swimming is great. No sand, no rocks, no moss, no vegetation of any kind in the water. And no people walking along the shoreline. It's very private. People who own property along the shore keep to themselves and there is no public access anywhere nearby. Also, there is great fishing for bass, pickerel, pike, and sunfish just a few minutes away. My favourite thing in the morning is taking my dogs for a long walk along the beach or riding my bike into town (5 K) and having breakfast at the Tall Poppy where they have extraordinary coffee from Costa Rica, Ethiopia, you name it. In the same little town these are two very fine restaurants, a grocery, LCBO, drug store, antique shops, art galleries, boat rentals, tennis courts, golf course, and a public beach--all just a 3 minute drive from my house. So, even though I live in the country, the little community of Wellington has just about everything I need. Also, when I want to sample some wine, there are 8 vineyards within 5 minutes of the house, When I'm feeling more adventurous, Sandbanks is only 15 minutes further and so is Picton--a quaint town of 5,000 that has lots of cool shops, restaurants, galleries, a movie theatre, bars with music--all within walking distance of each other.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is very secluded and private on a large property well away from the road and any neighbours. The beautiful house is spacious and very charming. Large rooms, beautiful furniture, renovated bathrooms and kitchen. All absolutely lovely. The kitchen is sunny and bright, with stainless steel appliances, tons of counter space and a gorgeous view of the lake from the big window. In fact you can see the lake from almost every room in the house. The master bedroom is fantastic with a beautiful bathroom. Very romantic – you can lie in bed with the gas fireplace going and watch the waves rolling on the big lake – Wow! The dining room has the same fantastic view. And so does the large living room with the beautiful wood beam ceiling and the spectacular stone fireplace. It was spring so we saw bright sunny days but also rain and gale force winds. So we spent lots of time in the living room snuggled up on the couch in front of a blazing fire while looking out at the waves crashing on the shore. Good thing I had brought my maul axe. It was essential for splitting the wood which we found at a farm near Hagerman’s. The garage was great to keep the car safe during the wind storm. The beautiful large secluded property is home to lots of wildlife. It was spring so the backyard was like a bird sanctuary. There were numerous species of birds visiting the two feeders. As well swallows were nesting in the many bird houses around the property. There was even one trying to build a nest in the chimney vent of the gas stove on the balcony outside the master bedroom....check before lighting. The bunkie is really sweet – it would be the perfect spot to sleep on a hot summer night, perched on the edge of the lake. And we loved the charming private deck also perched on the edge of the shore looking out over the endless horizon of Lake Ontario. We thought it was the perfect spot to open a bottle of champagne and toast the beauty of The County and Morganshire Glen.The house is close to some great secret beaches, even one with an old shipwreck. The beaches of Hillier are fantastic for beach combing. There are fossils and treasures to be found on every hike. We love packing a picnic lunch and walking for miles along the sand.We like to Geocache which has brought us to some places in The County that we would have never gone.Thanks to Poppy, the owner, for letting us stay at her beautiful cottage.We hope to be back for many more memories at the Morganshire Glen..

Best place for a fun weekend in Prince Edward County

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Morganshire Glen as a basecamp for a girls' weekend. It couldn't be more perfect. It was in the heart of the County, with easy access to Wellington and Bloomfield. Easy to find, as people were coming from different directions. Very comfortable house with room for all of us. Fantastic kitchen with lots of place to cook and store our big Saturday night meal. The grounds and view are stunning. Very pleased that we stayed here.

A True Getaway From The City!

  • 5 of 5
I just came home from a wonderful girlfriend/birthday celebration weekend. I hadn't been to Prince Edward county for over 20 years and was truly impressed with the area.
It started out with our wonderful stay at Poppy's cottage. The view from the cottage and most of the rooms was breath taking. Wide open spaces and the lake was spectacular.
There was 9 women 50 plus that gathered here for relaxation and celebration.
Poppy's cottage was perfect! The kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, dining and living rooms were spacious and well furnished.
We had a great time cooking, drinking and eating and the room sizes were very comfortable with so many of us.
We of course ventured out to walk the property and sit by the lake. At anytime of the day and night the views did not disappoint us.
The abundance of shopping, wineries and restaurants surely did not disappoint any of us. (Actually you need more than a weekend to take in the culture/activities around Poppy's place, so a return visit is a must)
A big thank you to Poppy for sharing her cottage for us! A great memory to cherish!

Unique Women - Girls Weekend !!

  • 5 of 5
My time was too short and I left wanting to stay longer. The house was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The views are breathless and you feel so serene from the minute you arrive. It's so close to everyting !! the small town shopping and wineries - and so much more ! Early morning coffee taking in the view and listening to the water was something everyone enjoyed ! We were a group of 9 and there was more than enough space. The grounds are very well kept and I look forward to going back to this location ! If you are looking for a great location and an easy drive from Burlington - you have found it here ! Enjoy your stay ......

Wonderful place for vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a very good time during our vacation. The view of the Ontario Lake is magical, especially early in the morning and late at night. The owner is just so nice and patient, she answered our million e-mails very fast. Very quiet place, a little far from Sandbanks beach (45-50 min. ride) but it's not really a problem since the house is waterfront. Would recommand this place to everyone, especially since the owner accepts dogs.
