Wonderful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well appointed. The pictures give an accurate refection but cannot fully convey the peacefulness. The sunroom was where we spent the majority of our evenings socializing, watching the sun set, listening to the waves crash in and playing twister :-) The beds were clean, crisp and comfortable. Cell phone service is limited but there is WiFi which was a surprise to us. Nice if you want that quick check in. I cannot say enough good things about this property. Our visitors from Ireland thoroughly enjoyed their relaxing stay.

Great Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a quick weekend getaway (adults and 2 kids under 10). The house is really nice and clean, kitchen is well stocked, view is phenomenal!

Everyone had a great time and we all enjoyed how quiet and peaceful it was.

The only thing that tried to spoil the weekends were insects, so have bug spray handy.

Lake is pretty, but not suitable for swimming (there was a warning about high bacteria level). Lake is perfect if you have a boat.

Will keep the property in favorites!

PS Respond time of the owner is great- quick and very efficient. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Izabela, I'm glad that you liked the house and found plenty to do. A real shame that the beach was closed due to the high bacteria levels. It only happens occasionally, every thing is open and safe again now. Hope to see you back again soon Cathy

Beautiful house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous. Very clean. The view is amazing. A peaceful getaway with lots to do in the near vicinity. A few days away from the hustle and bustle of life was just what the doctor ordered. Three bunnies in the neighborhood were fun to watch too.

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!
