We were going to rent this house on a permanent basis. But we couldn't bear to.. It's too wonderful. We want to spend time there too. So we're making it available for vacationers, and we'll be there when you aren't.
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
NOW BOOKING 2015
***PLEASE NOTE: An inquiry is not a booking! Already this year we have had two inquiries which were overtaken by someone else booking the dates. While one person was understanding, the other became upset and suggested that because she had made the inquiry, she had first right. Unfortunately, this is not the case. A booking is confirmed only when a reservation agreement is signed and the initial deposit received***
Our 2012, 2013 and 2014 summers were 100% occupied (please read the reviews) and we expect 2015 will fill quickly. Our first requests for 2015 has arrived. We would be delighted to hear from you!
A perfect day: Rise to the mist over the bay. Then off to explore the gallery at Huff Winery. A visit to Bloomfield and Wellington for unique shopping. Then a couple of hours on the sand banks catching the sun. Stop at a local winery to sample and select wine for dinner. A visit to one of the local county markets for the freshest meats, vegetables and fruits, then home for dinner on the deck, watching the swans sail regally by, and then looking up at more stars than you've ever seen before. And so to sleep in the perfect quiet of a County night,.
Tomorrow? Golf and boating. Or maybe the area museums. Perhaps the Glenora Ferry to Bath. A visit to Picton, or even Kingston.
Or just relax at Hawthorn Cottage, swimming, crafting and scrap-booking, reading, playing games, and re-charging the batteries with family and friends.
You can do the rest tomorrow. Or on your next visit.
We spent an amazing week at Hawthorn Cottage with our extended family. I was there with my husband, 10 month old son, my parents and my sister's family with her twin five year-olds.
The layout of this cottage is a little bit quirky - it actually kind of feels like two cottages stuck together, with two separate wings. This works perfectly for two families, as you have a lot of privacy (and screaming babies don't wake the others!). We were also thankful that it was a bungalow with plenty of space to play and no stairs to fall down. The front lawn is huge and is ideal for games and crawling around. It is an amazing set up for young families.
The property itself is beautiful and very well located. It is close to North Beach Provincial park, as well as a number of wineries. We had expected to spend more time in Picton, Sandbanks and Bloomfield, but the cottage itself was so nice that we did not venture too far most days.
Tom is a conscientious owner who is very accommodating and always looking for ways to improve the experience of his renters. He was a pleasure to work with. The cottage was clean, well equipped and has a great vibe. We will be back next summer, if not before!
Thanks for a great week!
This is the perfect cottage for two families to rent. Plenty of room for kids and adults to spread out and do their own activities or do nothing at all, both outside and in. The cottage itself was spotless and well stocked. The gardens and lakefront were absolutely beautiful. A short drive to many great wineries, Wellington, Bloomfield and even Sandbanks.
A definite plus is that good quality bed linens as well as after departure cleaning are included in the rental. No need to spend the last hours of your holiday doing the cleaning.
I would highly recommend this cottage and would, without hesitation, look to rent Hawthorn Cottage again for my next stay in the area.
We stayed at this cottage on the long family day weekend. It had everything we could have possibly needed for a terrific stay. We liked that we didn't have to worry about bringing sleeping bags, pillows or air mattresses because everything was provided. It came with a fully equipped kitchen as well which made meal preparation very easy! The listing description was accurate, There was ample space for a family....lots to do.....at the cottage and in the area. We enjoyed the local wineries, breweries and distilleries. As well at the cottage there was a games room with lots of activities for children. We were lucky because the lake was frozen so we were able to skate. It would be a great place to stay in the summer as well. Lots of outdoor space right on the water. We would highly recommend this spacious, clean cottage with lots of amenities to everyone.
We have greatly enjoyed our family vacation (two kids) at Hawthorne Cottage! The house is great and accommodating . The backyard is awesome with plenty of space for kids to run and play games. There is a great seating by the lake shore where nice breeze cools down hot summer days. Loved it and recommend to all considering..!!
We are from Texas and it was our first time to ever been on that side of Canada. We were looking for a place to stay for my Sister's wedding last July and we are so happy that my brother-in-law found you and we were able to book you in time for the special occasion. It is a magical place! I personally love your backyard and your garden. It was the perfect place for a family vacation! We wish to visit again in the future. I took alot of beautiful pictures of your cottage. Let me know if you want copies of them.
We stayed at Hawthorne Cottage a few weeks ago over the July Long Weekend. Every year, my friends and I (Toronto and Ottawa) rent a cottage somewhere in the middle and I can definitely say that this year was the nicest and most comfortable place we've stayed in. The house/cottage is split into two areas, so even though there were 8 of us, it never once felt cramped or crowded. The owners really went above and beyond any cottage we've ever stayed in. The view of the lake was amazing, the water was warm and inviting. There was tons of outdoor seating on the deck and also down by the water, which was great for watching sunsets. It's on a very quiet road and about a 10 minute drive to Trenton, where there were tons of stores for anything we needed. We would definitely return again to this cottage, actually we might book it now to ensure we get a space for next year :) Sarah.
