About the property

Country house, spectacular views of escarpment and sunsets

The Villa rises in a country setting among evergreen, maple and apple trees, between the Niagara Escarpment and Gowan Lake, offering spectacular sights of the escarpment ridge which reaches to Georgian Bay.

It is surrounded by the fragrance of luxuriant pine and cedars trees, is equipped with a private swimming-pool, gazebo and two generous decks overlooking spectacular country vistas.

The land is an excellent accommodation to spend unforgettable holidays, fully equipped and furnished with accuracy and taste while offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

This is a modern country villa on private 84 acres of land with a mixture of rolling pasture, wetlands, hardwood forest and private lake.

It features an in-ground 28 ft long swimming pool with a magnificent view of Gowan Lake and the Escarpment. The pool has a privacy fence on two sides and chain link fence on the other two sides in order to maintain the view of Gowan Lake and the Niagara Escarpment.

This uniquely designed; 2200 square foot villa has all the comforts of modern living in a country setting.

On the ground floor there is a large living room, half of which is sunken, with pine floors, exposed wooden beams, stone clad wood burning fireplace, TV with DVD, VCR with a collection of movies, stereo system with iPod dock.

Off the living room is the main dining room, with glass windows along the wall and across the vaulted ceiling. The dining room has a large 12 foot long harvest table with adequate seating for 8 comfortably.

Connected to the dining room is a large fully equipped kitchen. This elegant country kitchen has Bruce Peninsula flagstone floor, butcher block counters and loads of cupboard space, large oven and refrigerator as well as a dishwasher, microwave and many other features. Because the dining area is located a few steps lower than the kitchen, the kitchen and dining area share a luxurious view of the surrounding country side, Escarpment, and Gowan Lake.

Leading off the kitchen and dining room is a comfortable den \ bedroom with a queen size fold out futon.

Also on the ground floor is a three-piece bathroom (shower) and full laundry facilities (washer/dryer).

Located on the second floor is the master bedroom which has a king size bed (linens are provided) with cathedral ceiling, sitting area with hand crafted twig furniture and a second storey balcony that provides a great view of the surrounding escarpment, lake, and sunsets.

Attached to the main bedroom is an ensuite bathroom with a spacious glass enclosed shower, separate Jacuzzi tub, and separate room with toilet. This bathroom has a second door, so it is accessible to the main hallway.

There are two other bedrooms (both have queen beds) on the second floor, each of these rooms has a ladder leading up to two separate sleeping lofts, (and one loft has a double bed, the other a single).

Outside there are two decks, one at the front and one at the rear of the property to catch sun anytime of day or season. A third deck with gazebo for shade is located inside the pool enclosure. Ample seating for 8 and any daytime guests includes outside dinning and lounging

A rustic gazebo is located at the far end of the garden and provides a quiet seating area to get way from it all.

The Villa is located within close proximity to the world famous Bruce Trail for hikers of all ages and abilities. Spectacular Big Bay on Georgian Bay is a 5 minute drive.

Peaceful, Quiet, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing week away. There was no air conditioning but with all the windows, including ceiling windows and ceiling fans in just about every room the air flowed through the house. Sleeping was very comfortable. The Cottage was so clean! The Cottage comes with everything, bed sheets, comforters, pillows, all the Kitchen utensils, plates, pots, espresso/coffee machine, barbeque, etc., A lot of board games and movies. We had everything! We had the opportunity of meeting the owners and cleaning Lady, wonderful people! Cottage is at the end of a dirt road, very quiet, private. Lots of property to kick a ball, play games, and go for early morning walks down the dirt road or around the property. They even had a clothes line outside to hang wet towels. The pool was fantastic! So clean, Salt water felt great on the skin. Sauble beach is only a 25 minute drive away, only spent a couple days at the beach because the cottage was so great! Waterfalls and trails for site seeing is only a 20 minute drive away. A few Garter snakes, didn't bother us, and mosquitos so bring bug spray. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
