Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths,private extensive grounds.

Harmonious Fox House

Harmonious Fox House is a beautifully restored century old farmhouse, situated on 18 scenic acres with direct and private access to the Bay of Quinte.

Built by Mr Harmonious Fox in the late 1800's,the house was constructed with an independent space for his mother (the west wing).

It is an ideal spot for touring the many vineyards, restaurants and beaches of The County. Additionally you can enjoy fishing (with some of the best pickerel in Ontario in the bay), cycling, canoeing, photography and bird watching.

Large, airy characterful rooms are a key part of the charm of this very attractive country retreat. The bright and spacious eat-in kitchen is a pleasure to both prepare food in and to eat, socialize and catch up on all of the day’s activities. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything a family could need including coffee maker and a cappuccino machine , new stainless steel fridge freezer with iced water, crushed ice and cube dispenser . Enjoy the high end Hi Fi system and access to broadband internet .The hand made cherry wood table has seating for up to 12 people.

Walk through the sliding doors onto a large deck complete with 2 tables, 12 chairs, sun lounger and bbq. This deck has wonderful direct views of the meadows and water.

On the main floor there is also a large and comfortable living room, complete with board games, puzzles and books together with High Definition satellite tv.

From the living room you can walk through sliding double doors into the West Wing .

This part of the house was built by Mr Fox for his mother who lived with the family but had some independence, and can also be entered through a separate door from the garden . This is a lovely bright room with plenty of space to relax in a peaceful spot away from the rest of the house . Read a book by the pot bellied stove and enjoy the views to the lake across the meadow. Up a separate staircase leading from this room is the West Wing bedroom with 2 Queen size beds . There is a full bathroom with jacuzzi bath on the main floor . The West wing has a sunroom with full size table tennis table.

Off the living room is the main floor bedroom complete with a bay window overlooking a meadow that fronts the water .This room has a queen size bed and an en-suite three piece bathroom with shower.

Back to the main house ,on the main floor there is a two piece powder room and laundry room with washer & dryer and a sun-room with foosball table.

On the second floor there are three bedrooms. The first is a large bright bedroom with a queen size bed and an en-suite three piece bathroom with shower.

The remaining two upstairs bedrooms are also good sized. One bedroom has a queen bed and satellite tv. The other bedroom has both a queen and twin bed. These two connecting rooms share a four piece bathroom and a walk out to the top balcony with stunning views of the bay.

The property is completely private and has several trails that enable to you wander through the woods or meadows at your own pace. Perfect for gentle exercising and relaxing and enjoying the sights & sounds of nature

The vegetable garden has 4 raised beds with seasonal tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, beans, lettuce, herbs to be enjoyed by our guests

The shoreline is a 5 minute walk from the steps at the foot of the deck. There you can access the lake and launch the kayaks.Its a sandy bottomed lake with a very gradual slope – perfect for children. The water is also very warm Please bring water shoes as the sand sometimes contains hidden rocks.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The Harmonious Fox House is the perfect place for a family getaway, we had a fabulous and relaxing vacation The house is huge with all the amenities you have at home and some you wish you had. The yard is large and very private, the place comes with lots of games for the kids to play indoors and outdoors. Most importantly the owners are wonderful to deal with and will be helpful before and after your stay.

PEACEFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Fox house, this is our 3rd visit. We love this place. Such openness and clean air which made us very relaxed. This was definitely what we were looking for as a nice getaway from city life. Just the two of us so we used the main floor. I love how they opened up the west wing. Looks like there is so much more room. It's great if you take your whole clan for any events! For us October is a great time to be there because we get to use the pot belly :) It makes for cozy evenings with the fire going after any kind of activity you had during the day. Yes, we will definitely come again and recommend to our friends and family! I'd like to say to the owner, thank-you so much giving us this opportunity. You have done such a wonderful job with your property!

Owner's Response: It has really made a huge difference to the house opening up the west Wing . The views from the windows are stunning and the rooms are so bright and spacious. I really love the original features like the wainscotting . The Jacuzzi bath has been a big hit with our sons !

WONDERFUL SPACIOUS HOME

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely holiday house! Our entire family ( 12) had a marvelous time. The house is so spacious and well equipped. Everything was available from games to sports equipment to a really well equipped kitchen. We were all able to find spots to play and relax in this spacious home! We put food in the bird feeder and really enjoyed the cardinals , blue jays and all the small birds as well as the red squirrels who are very bold and had their share too. The fireflies were out in force at night and provided a lot of entertainment for the little kids! The area towns in Prince Edward County are very nice too. Try Slickers for ice cream in Bloomfield and browse through the shops along main street. In Wellington there is a super kids park on main street with access to the water and a great play structure and picnic tables . Picton has great shopping for almost everything.
All in all we had a great stay

Owner's Response: So happy to hear the house was well suited to such a large family gathering. This year we opened up the West Wing to provide an additional living room for quiet relaxing away from the hub bub of the main house . The extra space enabled us to sleep another 4 guests comfortably in the huge bedroom upstairs and the west wing sunroom now houses a full size table tennis table .

WE ALL HAD A GREAT TIME

  • 4 of 5
This was an excellent location for our 6 Adults, 2 children and 2 small dogs. We were able to relax, play volleyball, BBQ, burn marshmallows visit Sandbanks, Wineries and see the whole of PEC with ease. We loved the fresh fruit and veg ready for picking each morning. The accommodation was exactly as promised and despite challenging wireless connection and even though the Owners were just as far away from the internet somewhere in Italy all queries were rapidly resolved. We would certainly come again.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
The perfect holiday - if you are looking to stay in a century old (and well maintained) home on peaceful waters and country roads, if you are want to remember what the stars look like at night, if you want to hear the birds sing, if you want an afternoon or two of winery hopping, if you want access to kayaks and quiet roads for biking/walking, and if you want to rent from helpful owners. A few perks: large rooms, a comfortable setting, fully equipped kitchen, and a beautiful yard with a nice short trail to the water. Unusual perk: a very nice home that welcomes dogs! Our family of 6 greatly enjoyed our week - we left well rested with fabulous memories. We highly recommend this place!
