Great Cottage and Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Stay, 3 couples for a weekend getaway after our golfing weekend to the United States fell through.

The cottage was clean and we found it exactly as advertised. Some very interesting decorating through out this well maintained home. It is easy to tell that Cathy takes great pride in and care of this cottage.

Lots to do in the nearby area, wineries, restaurants and antiques. Something for everyone. The beach looks so inviting, too bad it was Fall and the weather not suitable for the beach. We will have to return when the weather is better.

We had a great time .... we will be back!

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

Truly loved every moment we spent at the lake house. The decor is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. There are many options for lighting and lounging so setting a mood for relaxation and great conversation was easy. Waking up in the morning in the master bedroom overlooking the lake is a great way to start the day. What a perfect place to enjoy a nice break from the day to day. Thanks to the amazing hosts who allowed us the privilege of staying here.

Great lake house by the shore

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the lake house. It is a lovely cozy 3 bedroom home with all amenities and a fabulous sunroom. It is about a 25 minute drive from the Pelee Island Ferry and 5 to 10 minute drive from wineries.

We really enjoyed our stay again
