Main Street Cottage

Whether you’re coming to play at Sandbanks’ beaches, explore wineries, historic landmarks and other County attractions, or simply stroll along the tree-lined Main Street of Wellington to discover its charm and take in the fresh lakeside air, Main Street Cottage is the perfect base for your vacation in the County. We are open year-round.

Main Street Cottage is a distinctive 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Cape Cod style century home in the heart of Wellington. Opened in the summer of 2014, this newly renovated and newly furnished 2-story house features all modern amenities blended with plenty of old character for enjoyment in all four seasons. Relax in the casual elegance of the living and dining rooms as you plan and recount your days in the County. A spacious deck, opening up onto a private backyard, affords a relaxing environment for savouring your morning coffee before setting out to explore the County and for retreating at the end of the day. A cozy window seat in the enclosed sun porch as well as a bench in the front yard offer great spaces to greet neighbours and watch the world go by along the charming Main Street.

Ideally situated to take advantage of what the County has to offer, the picturesque village of Wellington with its gorgeous views of Lake Ontario is home to local studios and galleries, restaurants, heritage architecture and museum, a boardwalk, lighthouse, marina, lakefront playground and public library, all within walking distance of Main Street Cottage. The Main Street also houses several local amenities, including a grocery store, hardware store, pharmacy, post office, bank, LCBO, town hall and churches. In addition, many of the County’s wineries are located just a short drive or bike ride away, as are additional shops, galleries and restaurants.

Prince Edward County is a unique island getaway in southeastern Ontario offering something for everyone: beautiful beaches, scenic back roads for cycling and hiking, a rich collection of colonial architecture, and a vibrant culture featuring fine restaurants and other local culinary delights, wineries, galleries as well as music, theatre, food and art festivals.

Main Street Cottage is located 2 hours from Toronto, 3 hours from Ottawa and 4 hours from Montreal.

Wonderful Stay !!

  • 5 of 5

Main Street Cottage is as lovely as its pictures ! Restful, simple, comfortable decor that was perfect for our party of three with lots of room for larger groups as well. Very clean, and cozy, and all our needs were anticipated. Lovely outdoor space too. The location is perfect - easy walk to great food and easy drive to explore the county's wineries and shops. Host Richard was welcoming and very accessible. We had a fabulous time and will recommend to others, we hope to stay again too!!

Perfect Prince Edward County Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This absolutely charming house in downtown Wellington is the perfect place to stay in PEC. Beautifully furnished and well equipped with a pretty backyard and wonderful front porch, the house has everything you need. The entire house and property is very well maintained and the owner was extremely hospitable and helpful. It's a great location to explore all of PEC, a short stroll into Wellington and all it's amenities, as well as the lake. A perfect place to stay!

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

This lovely friendly home on Main Street in idyllic Wellington was the perfect for us, two couples from different continents who meet up to catch up and explore new territories together

A convenient base for exploring the wineries, beaches beautiful towns and golf courses of Beautiful Prince Edward County and a welcoming retreat to return to each evening with it's private garden and deck, perfect for evening barbecues and a game of bocce ball.

The layout of the house is excellent, very spacious and very well equipped, the kitchen was excellent. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms well supplied with towels

Our host, Richard, could not have been more helpful, thank you Richard for making our stay so enjoyable.

I would recommend this cottage, the beauty, charm, history and variety of activities that this area offers makes it a very special place and we are looking forward to returning one day.
