Weekend stay for wedding

  • 5 of 5

Wish we would have had more time to spend at the cottage. It was a weekend filled with wedding events (nephew got married) but the time we were at the cottage was relaxing. The weather cooperated, got to sit out in the sun enjoying the peacefulness before the wedding. Everything you could possibly need was in the cottage, the beds were comfy. We hope in the future we'll be able to return & actually enjoy a holiday there.

Thank you with all the help you gave leading up to our event. We truly appreciate the personal contact.

Cathy & Tony

Relaxing vacation in beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

If you have not been to Colchester, we highly recommend making a trip there. The people are friendly, and Pelee Island and Point Pelee are destinations not to be missed! The wineries are an added bonus to the trip! My husband and I brought our two kids (ages 11 and 13) there and they loved it!

We highly recommend renting this property. The house is spacious and comfortable, and the owners are very hospitable and will go out of their way to answer all your questions and make your stay an enjoyable and memorable one! The master bedroom faces Lake Erie, and we could not have asked for a more beautiful scenery to wake up to every morning!

Perfect relaxing place after birding!

  • 5 of 5

WE really enjoyed waking up and doing some yoga in the sunporch facing the lake..It was a great quiet place to have a cup of coffee and get set for our day of birding. After walking anywhere from 5-10 km's/day it was a welcoming spot to come home to. WE enjoyed lighting the gas fireplace and watching some TV after a nice dinner we cooked on the BBQ.

The house was exceptionally clean and everything we needed was there!

Cathy answered any questions we had within a few hours, if not minutes. Definitely a place we would come back to.
