|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
A well-equipped 3 bedroom house with 2 bathrooms, a sunroom and a spacious garden overlooking Lake Erie. There is direct access to the main beach via the private steps. This house is an excellent place to escape the hustle and bustle for a quiet weekend away. The surrounding area has plenty to entertain you including wineries, golf courses, cycle trail and not forgetting the beach and lake.
The down stairs of the house features a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, lounge, bathroom and spacious and light sunroom. Upstairs there is a master bedroom overlooking the lake and two other double bedrooms, and a second bathroom. All bedrooms have queen beds and ceiling fans.
The spacious garden gives you uninterrupted views of the lake and direct access to the water via the private steps.
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!
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.
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
I will forever be raving about this place! Such a gorgeous location and quaint little place! The owner has been nothing but kind and responsive throughout the whole experience as well
This house was perfect! Beautifully updated, with new and/or newly refinished wood flooring upstairs and downstairs, faucets, showers, and fresh paint. Each room retains its "Arts and Crafts" architectural charm, with beautiful wood trim. Both the living room and the master bedroom have gas fireplaces with remote-controlled thermostats (including hand-held remotes). We loved the enclosed sun-room at the back! Oh, and I appreciated the irony of the rotary phone on the telephone bench (gossip seat), right next to the wireless modem. :-)
Outside, enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Erie, swing on the sturdy swing set (this reminds me of the one we had at my home in Kingsville 50 years ago!),and toast marshmallows around the new fire-pit in the evening. The entrance to Colchester Beach and a great splash pad are only two doors down, and there is an ice cream shop less than 10 mins walk away.
Honestly, I can think of only two caveats: the mayflies (late May through end of June), and the fact that the air conditioner is only on the lower level. The mayflies can't be helped ... Lake Erie (both the Canadian side and the US side) is known for them, and they are completely harmless. The AC being only on the lower level is really only an issue if the outside temperature is really hot (upper 80's F / 29C), as there are excellent ceiling fans in all the upstairs bedrooms that do a great job of cooling the rooms. In addition, only about half of the homes in this area have AC at all.
I was born in this area, and this trip was not only the first time I'd been back for 38 years, but also an opportunity to show my American-born daughters "my Canada." I'm so glad that they were able to play on the same beaches that I did, and experience the same things I did when I was even younger than they are now. Thank you, Cathy, for a wonderful experience (and the wine!) :-)
We had a lovely getaway at the cottage with our friends. The location is excellent and the hosts are very thoughtful and nice. The cottage was perfect and well equipped. the hosts were available for any questions and concerns for the entirety of the trip and the planning phase. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for the perfect getaway.
