Prince Edward County House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps max 8 )

Located on Lake Ontario in the heart of Prince Edward County’s Hillier wine district, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath all-season waterfront retreat is ideally located for families, beach lovers, cyclists, golfers, equestrians, wine enthusiasts, antique collectors, bird watchers, hunters, fisherman, cross country skiiers and those who enjoy fine cuisine.

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. The formal dining room seats eight and the bright, colorful kitchen features Paderno and includes everything required for the cooking enthusiast.

Completing the main floor is a spacious bedroom with a double bed, a 4-piece bath, a laundry room with a washer / dryer and your very own home-office with wireless Internet and a picture-perfect view overlooking the lake. There is also an attached two-car garage ready to store your bikes and beach gear.

The second floor has three more bedrooms--two with double beds and a shared 3-piece bath plus an exceptional master bedroom with a large private bath, a queen size bed, a gas log stove, and a private library with a cozy balcony overlooking the garden and the lake.

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.

The landscaped patio has table seating for six and lots of outdoor chairs and tables for lounging around the waterfront. For the kids, there’s ping-pong, foosball, badminton.

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

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 .

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.

Pleasant Winter Surprise!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
It's always a little daunting booking accommodation for a group, especially in an area not typically known for winter getaways. Our group of three couples adapted quickly and thoroughly enjoyed winter walks, snow-shoeing and sightseeing in and around this fine property.
The spacious house was clean and well-appointed - our group particularly enjoyed the time spent in the great room around the fireplace. The large windows provided great natural light and views of Lake Ontario that changed daily with the build-up and thawing of snow and ice.
Nearby, our group enjoyed walking and snowshoeing at Sandbanks and Presq'uile
provincial parks. As well, having the small town of Wellington nearby was very handy with it's shops, wineries and friendly people.
Though thoroughly enjoying this property at this cold and snow-covered time of year as we did, summers must be glorious and I well understand the accolades of previous guests.
This for us was a great find and we look forward to visiting again!

Magical Stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
I rented this beautiful cottage/house for a girlfriend's 50th Birthday celebration.
I chose Prince Edward County because of the location as we had 2 people coming from Quebec and 2 from Toronto area. I haven't been in the county for many years and i was so pleasantly surprised. The wineries are plentiful!

When we pulled up to the house, we were quite excited, i was nervous because I was the one who chose it based on reviews online and the feel of the pictures and my conversations with the owner via email. I went with my gut that told me it was going to be wonderful. It was so magical being there. The house is better equipment than my own house and i can't think of anything we needed that wasn't provided! It was spotless, the grounds beautiful and every room was well put together. Loved the 3 bathrooms too, something that is so nice with so many 50 year old women!

I would rent this place again in an instant, it was relaxing, fun, and felt very peaceful to all of us. I will also recommend it to any of my friends/coworkers! We used a local spa in Bloomfield called Nightingales and they sent us 2 esteticians - the massage therapist set up in the dining room in front of the window and the facials were done in the living room in front of the window. So very relaxing and was perfect because we could close off each room for peace while one of us were getting our treatments. One of my friends is also a massage therapist and another is a chiropractor. All of us have had these treatments before elsewhere, but this was the best we had ever had. After the spa treatments we went outside for a yoga class on your lawn. It was so beautiful, the waves, geese flying above and the beautiful weather made it magic.

The owner has obvious great taste in decorating and hosting guests by making sure everything was available. We will be back for sure as soon as we can!

We have four couples go to Picton for 2 nights to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside and wineries. This house was very well equipped and very spacious and clean to accommodate us cooking in relaxing both inside and out - looking over the lake in peace and tranquility. We would definately return to this location if in the area again.

Fabulous Country Estate - Charming, Private and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
My husband and I spent a week at this beautiful country estate. The house is very warm and welcoming with a combination of lovely antiques, modern amenities, and large and comfortable rooms. This large private property overlooks beautiful Lake Ontario and is very close to fabulous restaurants, wineries and galleries. Every evening, after we returned from our daily excursions, we looked forward to returning "home" and to sit by the lake to chat and read.

This place has all to offer for couples who want a romantic getaway, for large families who want to have a fabulous and memorable vacation or for friends who want to explore, wine/dine and LOL!

Thanks to Poppy for letting us stay at her lovely country place, As others noted, she is a gracious, caring and lovely person who is readily accessible if required, albeit unnecessary for us, as all was perfect.

We will certainly return!

We love the Morganshire Glen

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
My wife & I have been renting vacation properties in The County for years. This year our favourite cottage was sold & we thought we’d never find a spot like it near Wellington. Morganshire Glen certainly filled the void.

The house is secluded & private on a large property away from the road & neighbours. The beautiful house is clean, spacious & very charming. Large rooms, beautiful furniture, renovated bathrooms & kitchen. All absolutely lovely. The kitchen is sunny & bright, with stainless steel appliances, tons of counter space & a gorgeous view of the lake. You can see the lake from almost every room in the house. The master bedroom is so romantic – you can lie in bed with the gas fireplace on & watch the waves rolling on the big lake – Wow! The dining room has the same fantastic view. So does the large living room with the beautiful wood beam ceiling & spectacular stone fireplace. It was spring so we saw sunny days but also rain & gale force winds. So we spent lots of time snuggled on the couch in front of a blazing fire while looking out at the crashing waves. Good thing I brought my maul axe, essential for splitting the wood in the garage & the wood we bought at a farm near Hagerman’s.

It was spring so the backyard was like a bird sanctuary with many species of birds visiting the two feeders. Swallows were nesting in bird houses around the property, even trying to build a nest in the chimney on the balcony outside the master bedroom....check before lighting. The bunkie is really sweet – the perfect spot to sleep on a hot summer night, perched on the edge of the lake. We loved the charming deck also perched on the edge of the shore looking out at the endless horizon of Lake Ontario. The perfect spot for a bottle of champagne to toast The County & Morganshire Glen.

The house is close to great secret beaches, even one with an old shipwreck. The Hillier beaches are fantastic for beach combing, fossils & treasures to be found on every hike. We love packing a picnic lunch & walking for miles.

We like to Geocache which has brought us to places in The County we would have never gone. Check out caches Trout Scout & Wood Nymph found in The County at Geocaching.com.

Thanks to Poppy, the owner, for letting us stay at her beautiful spot. She was easy to contact by email & was the perfect host. We hope to be back for more memories at the Morganshire Glen.
