About Peggy Kennedy

Ric and I are baby boomers who have permenent health issues that slow us down, but we are still putting our right foot forward, living. We spend time between Kingsville Ontario and Wilberforce, Ontario with a little travel here and there when available. We are willing to share our little piece of paradise in order to help off set living costs. We are a live and let live couple who expect others to treat our place with kindness. Remember this is a septic so careful on toilet paper usage, don't flush other paper products, conserve water use within reason. Enjoy our fabulous well water. Great drinking.

Respect our beautiful environment. Recycle, compose, follow by-laws

I enjoy life and try to engage when I can in many activities. Walking is a daily necessity, the rest (quilting, jewlery, writing, painting, kayaking) as I can including a little travel. Ric enjoys the sounds of nature, carpentry, his classic car, reading and travel. We are both warm weather people leaving with respective serious Heath issues

Peggy Kennedy purchased this bungalow in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the privacy, views of rock face, forest, outdoor wood cooking, marshmallow roasting. Exploring the property looking for frogs and toads along the stream, bird watching, playing hide and seek, hiking with the dog. We enjoy exploring the different lakes in the area within 15 minutes. We love so many of the beaches it is hard to pick a favourite. I love coming back to the house from the beach to all the comforts of home in this beautiful wilderness. Enjoying views well into the night from the living room or out on the deck. The temperature in the house is always perfect. The kitchen is well stocked. We enjoy the art festivals and local fairs in the area too.
