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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

Perfect Long Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This place has it all... Breathtaking views of the lake and country side. The living room is very kozy with its beautiful wood trusses and a natual wood fireplace. The kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms are very clean and updated. Ping pong and badminton were a huge hit, and being very close to local wineries is a nice perk as well. I wish we were able to stay longer!! If you are able to reserve a date you will not be disappointed.

We Love The Morganshire Glen

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Poppy, for another fantastic week at your lovely home. We love the turquoise views of the beautiful lake, the cozy fires in your amazing stone fireplace, the fun paint colours in all the rooms.

We had a fun week doing all The County things we love to do. Spent hours by the big lake, walking the beaches combing for treasures and fossils or in the Adirondack chairs snuggled under a blanket watching the waves roll in. Trout Scout and Wood Nymph toured the back country roads geocaching. We shopped in Picton and Bloomfield. We dined at Pomodoro and at East & Main as well as in your lovely purple dining room with the view of the big lake. And we spent lots of time at the Morganshire Glen because it’s such a wonderful spot to be, nestled on the couch in front of the warm fire looking out at that amazing big lake.

Thank you for opening your home to us, Poppy!

Pleasant Winter Surprise!

  • 5 of 5
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
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!
