Our place has location, location, location. We have the most spectacular unobstructed views: sunrises, sunsets, birds, boats, ships, weather, all lake activity and great swimming. The Chirping Grapevine is ideally located within the heart of wine and bird country. Ideally situated half way between Point Pelee and Holiday Beach for the bird watchers and centred for the wineries of your choice. Kingsville is a quaint little hamlet with restaurants, groceries, drug store, restaurants, video rental, library for you to explore. There are wineries in every direction. I have provided a page with necessary information to make your selections and planning easier. Within wine country you also find Ontario's food industry with farms and greenhouse operations aplenty. Enjoy eating local grown food and grazing the farmers stands for your favourites. Add a bottle of wine from one of the local wineries and enjoy a fabulous local grown meal all found within Kingsville. Shop, eat, golf, all water activities are all a short drive within Kingsville. Or sit back and relax on the deck, watching the Lake activity, bbqing, swimming, reading, birdwatching. Launch your own kayak from the deck.
I fell in love with the view. Location, Location, Location. We are located on a rock ridge; High and dry. The houses on the other side of the road back onto the creek while we are on Lake Erie. From my Great Room or the deck I experience the diversity of birds, the frolicking, antics and inner play, both on the lake and land. Listen to the waves crashing or the gentle swish of water on a calm day/night. Watch the wind shift and the waves change direction. Watch white caps on a high wind or view the birds on the sand bar during quiet weather.
I love to walk, we have trails everywhere. Easy to access and enjoyable to traverse. Walk down the street and then onto Cedar Beach. Walk along the water in the sand. Head, by car, down Arner Town Line and park at the Cedar Creek entrance and parking, to enjoy the walking trails, or canoe, kayak. I love to sail and there are several marinas at just down the street at Cedar Beach.
Cedar Island also has a huge public beach for the beach goers. I love Kingsville's central location.
Added bonus room this season giving us more space to spread out. More room and privacy for those using the pull out couch. Rainy day room with great panoramic views of Lake Erie and all the activity. Pictures posted as soon as the renovation is competed. No changes in pricing.
We are leaving tomorrow. We had a great time thank you for letting us in your cottage.
We did not know what to do with the trash so we left them close to the door on the inside. Let me know if you prefer other arrangement.
We will leave tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks again and perhaps till next year.
I spent two wonderful weeks here in August. As reported by others, the owners were very pleasant to work with, and have provided every comfort, as well as many thoughtful conveniences. The ceramic tile floor throughout is the perfect solution for a place on a sandy beach; easy to clean and very attractive to boot.
The area has much to offer. We enjoyed visits to Point Peelee, Peelee Island, area wineries, and the very interesting Park family homestead. Visiting grandchildren had fun at the spray park / playground / beach at Colchester. Best of all, in spite if the very cool summer, Lake Erie was warm enough for comfortable swimming. Hope to return to the Chirping Grapevine in the future.
My husband and I enjoyed a great week at this up-to-date retreat on Lake Erie. The owners of the property thought of everything for the convenience and comfort of their guests. It is indeed a beautiful home in a breathtaking setting right on the waters of Lake Erie. We will be back soon!
My husband and I and our two dogs recently spent 4 days at this lovely peaceful home in Kingsville and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, right on Lake Erie with stunning views. The house is very comfortable, with a really great kitchen, nice bathrooms, etc. But the real treat is the deck with the great views. We loved it and will hopefully be going back again soon.
The cottage was exactly as shown. It was very clean and well maintained. I would recommend this property to others. We hope to rent again.
Very clean cottage that fit our needs perfectly. You are directly on Lake Erie with a terrific deck on back of house. A real cook's kitchen. Owners provide detergent for dishwasher & clothes washer, many spices and lots of pots and pans ~ very considerate & appreciated. Love the gas stove!
Surrounded by Wineries, Birding opportunities. While in Essex County enjoy the wonderful Food, Wine, Weather and Wildlife. We are located 1/2 way between Point Pelee and Holiday Beach, minutes off the green way centred in the areas birding opportunities and wineries.
