Pelham Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

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 double beds that can sleep four; a queen bed is found in the third spacious bedroom and in the fourth bedroom a daybed can expand to comfortably sleep two. 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 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 are available for use in the river that runs along the length of the property. 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 Ontario

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.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent several days at Lindy's lovely farmhouse!

We've done these types of vacations before but this was by far our favourite! The house was clean and comfortable. It's just perfect for large extended families looking to spend time together. We enjoyed the privacy this property offered and we loved the fact that we were able to bring our family dog.

Lindy was wonderful and was easily reachable in case we needed her but also respected our privacy. Thank you Lindy! :)

Owner's Response: Someone is always available to help with any problems that may arise at the farm but we do try to minimize our work and visits there so guests can enjoy their vacation time to the fullest. Wonderful guests.

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip at Lindy's house. The 5 adults and two kids enjoyed the pool and a few of us got out kayaking. The house itself is large and very clean. Lindy has stocked the house well with many of the things needed for an extended stay. Lindy also works very hard to ensure the stay goes well for all. While the internet was slow at times and the bugs were biting, that was expected so we came prepared. There are many golf courses and beaches nearby and the falls/wineries are not far either. All in all it was a great stay and we would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: This rural Internet is on my radar....perhaps I will look into a booster. Loads of wineries and golf courses nearby. Thanks for being fantastic guests!

Beautiful, and so clean!

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous, and Lindy was a joy to work with. The house was perfect for our large group, and everything was sparkling clean. We all loved swimming in the pool (it was hard to get the kids out!) and relaxing by a bonfire while gaping at all the beautiful stars at night. I really loved having my morning coffee in a peaceful chair by the river, and my mother-in-law couldn't get enough of watching the birds at the home's pretty feeder tree. Every single person in our big group absolutely loved our stay. Thank you for making our family vacation great!!

Owner's Response: I loved when this group arrived. The kids were so excited for their vacation (and to get out of the car!) and were running around....a good reminder of the joy I get from renting out the farm.

Very Nice Home for a Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We (from Ohio) decided to explore wine country and visit the Canadian side of Niagara Falls with 3 adults and 8 kids. The house was perfect for our adventure with a very large pool, a nice hot tub, a fire pit, plenty of space for everyone to sleep and eat, and kayaks to explore the river. The river is very close to the house, which was a surprise as we thought it would be a hike from the house from the pictures. The setting was lovely. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with...and we learned that trash cans are much smaller in Canada and they focus much more on recycling than we do. The wifi was weak for so many of us, but we made do. The drive to Niagara was about 40 minutes and is much better than the American side, from a tourists perspective, lots more for families to do.

Owner's Response: Country internet does have it's limitations, but this family did have a bunch of teenagers, so that may be its limitation too! We do try to encourage as much recycling at the farm, as well as the collection of organics, because good planets are hard to find and let's keep everywhere, and not just Ontario, beautiful. We will have to try and post more pictures with the river proximity as it is a feature we can boast about.
