About the property

Countryside Retreat, Perfect for Large Family and Friends Gathering and Relaxing

Nestled on 23 acres of land that run adjacent to the Welland river is an updated 3000 sq. ft. century old farmhouse that is ready to become your family's favourite get-away.

During the summer months, the farmhouse can comfortably sleep 15 people.

The farm is located south of the Twenty Valley Wine Country and there are a variety of wine tour companies that will pick up your parties at the farm and will drop you off following a lovely day of wine tasting. If you prefer more nature than wine, there are many beautiful parks and a sandy beach on Lake Erie only a short drive away...and the infamous Niagara Falls and all of its attractions are only a 35 minute drive away.

Plenty of sleeping spaces can be found in the four upstairs bedrooms. A king size bed and a four piece ensuite are found in the large master bedroom; an adjacent bedroom has two bunk beds that can sleep four to six; a queen bed is found in the third spacious bedroom and in the fourth bedroom has a king bed. A three piece bathroom is also located on the upper floor.

On the main floor, a queen bed is tucked privately away and additional sleeping spaces can be found on a comfortable pull out sofa that is in a quiet sitting room and on the comfortable couches in the family room.

A third spacious bathroom is located on the main floor and is equipped with a shower.

Multiple eating spaces can be found between the kitchen and the dining room, which has three patio doors facing the river. The large family room has a large Smart TV, Blu-ray player and a big and varied selection of DVDs. There are multiple games for the family to enjoy as well as a selection of children and adult books and puzzles.

A large in-ground pool and a hot tub are two of the extra amenities that will make your retreat memorable.

The kitchen is stocked with almost anything you would need during your stay. Crock pot, punch bowl, serving trays, serving bowls and bakeware are just some of the extras besides the multitude of plates, glassware and cutlery provided. There a few pantry staples, herbs and spices, and condiments provided.

A 10 acre forest is located on the south end of the property with well-appointed walking trails and a charming little shack. Several kayaks and a canoe are available for use in the river that runs along the length of the property and there are 4 adult bicycles for use. A BBQ is supplied and there is a large fire pit on the property and the wood is available for purchase (or you can collect fallen brush).

An 18 hole golf course and a family diner are in walking distance of the property.

Pets are allowed :)

About Lindy

I am an advanced care paramedic in the Niagara Region and love animals and being outdoors. I was raised in a small village of 350 people, I enjoyed years of living in a city and it's nearby amenities, but in the end, the serenity of the countryside won my heart.

Lindy purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Lindy chose Pelham

I fell in love with this property before it was even listed. I remember the sunlight hitting the big old red barn on the property and thinking how I would love to get pictures taken there. I bought the farm and it has been the family gathering place ever since.

What makes this farmhouse unique

I am a dedicated bird feeder, so if you love birds, you'll be guaranteed to have some fun sightings! This spring we have had LOTS of activity: indigo buntings, baltimore orioles, hummingbirds, yellow finches by the dozen, cardinals, red-winged blackbirds, chickadees, a variety of woodpeckers, blue jays, grosbeaks, mourning doves, nuthatches, juncos (winter regulars) as well as turkey vultures and bluebirds nesting on the property. The occassional hoot can also be heard by a pair of Great Horned Owls.

Fabulous property! Extremely clean, plenty of room, great pool, hot tub and outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

Six moms enjoyed a relaxing stay on our annual getaway weekend. We spent most of the weekend outside enjoying each others company, despite some rain, thanks to the covered patio. We really appreciated having a second fridge as we cooked all of our meals during our stay. Very organized recycling too! Everyone had a lovely time. The ladies all commented on how clean the farmhouse was and it is a lot of house to clean and turn around in between guests. We would like to return next year :-). Thanks so much Lindy!

Spacious, welcoming and cozy home

  • 5 of 5

The owner has gone to great lengths to make sure that the people staying at this cottage are comfortable and taken care of. The beds are unbelievably comfortable, there was lots of space for people to get comfortable in, the hot tub was a wonderful bonus (as we were there during the colder season), and the environment felt like you could have been in your own home. I would recommend this cottage to anyone with a bigger group trying to get away.

A Lovely & Luxurious Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lindy's house is an absolute dream.

As soon as you drive up to the property, you can immediately feel that this place is special!

The house is thoughtfully furnished, allowing for days of entertainment and relaxation.

The harvest table (that welcomes you though the front door) and the dining table at the back were long enough for our party of 8 to dine comfortably on. We cooked all of our meals in the great, spacious kitchen.

The personalized fire pit was an absolute hit and the hot tub was perfect for star-gazing.

At the end of each night, we retired to the beds that were incredibly comfortable to sleep in.

We would definitely love to come back to this house and make more memories!

Thank you, Lindy!!

Anniversary/Thanksgiving Celebration

  • 5 of 5

When my husband and I were thinking about how to celebrate 50 years of marriage, we decided we wanted to do something special with the people we love most.......our kids and 9 grandkids. As we perused the Internet, we came upon Lindy's farmhouse and it seemed like a good fit. With grandkids in university and some working, Thanksgiving weekend seemed like an appropriate choice. Lindy's house was everything we had hoped for. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the canoe & kayaks, the bike trails in the woods, the discovery of an old cabin, the mother cat and kittens in the old barn, the hot tub, etc., etc.. The house was perfect with areas inside and out to play games or just sit and visit. Lindy was available for questions, but non- intrusive. We had a great time and would recommend this place for a quiet, private getaway.

Great stay! Would definitely want to come back to enjoy another weekend with the ladies!

  • 5 of 5

Lindy has done such an amazing job at maintaining this home. It is very welcoming and it has far exceeded my expectations. My friends and I enjoyed our weekend getaway from the big city. We felt right at home, as everything was easily accessible and rules were stated clearly. The decor added a cottage-like feel that was very inviting. There is no doubt mind that I would consider going back. I would like to thank Lindy for welcoming us into her home and providing all of the necessary features needed for the perfect ladies getaway!
