A cozy cottage with spectacular 180 degree view of Lake Ontario, located near Picton and Bloomfield, in the midst of town and wine country.
This water side house was inspired by and has been recently restored to the feel of a gracious turn of the century upscale sea side Guest house with extensive use of cedar and vintage wood on the interior. We call it “West Water Place”. It is located conveniently in the beautiful water front vacation town of Wellington Ontario, on a quiet street directly overlooking majestic Lake Ontario. West Water place offers a stunning uninterrupted 180 degree lake view from every room and cool breezes when the summer is hot. It’s just steps from shops, restaurants and ideal for cycling to wineries as well. In addition, this small town meets all your daily shopping requirements, food store, pharmacy, and vegetable market, LCBO, all within easy walking distance from your cozy cottage.
Watch the sun rise over the famous Sand Banks Provincial Park while listening to the waves breaking along the gently sloping limestone shore .A perfect place for swimming, directly in front of your house, or body surfing/ wind sailing when the winds are up.
Enjoy the long summer night from the sun room or deck admiring the moon’s reflection on the lake, and the melody of the happy sound of the waves.
