House, 4 Bedrooms, Waterfront (Sleeps 8)

WELCOME TO COUNTY LOYALIST FARMHOUSE!

Whether you are looking for a country escape or want to meander the wine trails of the County, the County Loyalist Farmhouse will capture your heart and imagination. Experience Prince Edward County at its best, in this fully renovated early 19th century farmhouse filled with the light and sounds of waterside living and situated on the easternmost tip of Prince Edward County.

How to choose the best sunset view? Could be sitting on the dock as the sun sinks beyond the horizon, gently swinging in the waterside cedar swing, or sipping your beverage of choice on the front courtyard. Regardless of location, the sunsets of County Loyalist Farmhouse are simply not to be missed. You may find yourself establishing a Sunset Salutation every day to observe the many colours, sites and joys that each exceptional sunset provides!

MAIN FLOOR

County Loyalist sits at the top of a knoll, and the windows on the main floor provide many views of the water, almost as if it was lapping at the glass. The windows are many, ready to be opened to the sounds of the water and the birds, and the breeze ruffling the nearby leaves on the trees.

- The great room on the west side of the house encompasses the kitchen with its large island, wonderful seating and playing area and a large dining room allow comfortable traffic flow.

- Windows look out to the west and north of the house, offering spectacular sunset and water views.

- The kitchen, with it expansive row of windows, has a dishwasher, range, microwave, fridge and a large country sink that often doubles as a bathtub for the under-3 group!

- A large island anchors the kitchen so the cooks have lots of company.

- A powder room is tucked discreetly by the back entrance.

- Both the living room and kitchen provide access to the wonderful patio overlooking the farmland behind the property.

- The front door leads out to a generous portico flanked by two courtyards overlooking the front lawn down to the shoreline.

SECOND FLOOR

- 4 bedrooms upstairs (2 rooms with queen-size beds and 2 rooms with 2 twins) sleep 8. A portacrib is available for babies. All have windows looking out to the shore and all are equipped with ceiling fans. Cross breezes from the 2 or more windows in each bedroom provide refreshing air flow.

- A large central hallway on the second floor contains a book nook where quiet reading can be done.

- In the “tail” portion of the upper floor are the main bath (with shower) and laundry facilities as well as en-suite off the master bedroom.

SHORELINE

In sharing our habitat with the creatures of land and sea, we keep artificial grooming of the shoreline to a minimum. As you sit by the water, you may spot the family of minks that will suddenly streak across the shore, or a curious chipmunk come out to see if you have peanuts.

- Seating area with garden swing and Muskoka chairs for your comfort at the shore.

- Forty foot dock is available for swimming, boat mooring and sunning.

- A pebbly shoreline recommends water shoes be worn.

- The water shore gradually slopes away from the shore & can be entered from the shore or the dock (dock entry is not deep enough for diving).

- Kayak provided with the rental. Please bring your own properly sized personal flotation devices.

- Launch your own boat at the “cow drink” on the west end of the property, marked by a stake and where the kayak is secured. This is a grassy slope so, if you prefer, a public launch is nearby.

- A pass for Sandbanks is available for your use at no fee.

LAWN AND GARDENS

The County Loyalist Farmhouse sits on 3.5 acres of land with over 300 feet of private waterfront and a barn dating back two centuries (no access). There are many areas to relax around the house.

- The back patio that is well shaded on those hot afternoons with patio tables and umbrellas.

- Front courtyards with shady mornings and sunny afternoons, loungers and rocking chairs.

- In the secluded tree line adjacent to the house is a large hammock, where you can recline and relax, listening to the birds and the water lapping at the shore.

- An outdoor fire bowl in the meadow behind the house with chairs, perfect for toasting marshmallows and admire the fields filled with fireflies.

- You are welcome to use the herbs in the kitchen garden.

- A few birdfeeders set up outside the kitchen window allow for easy viewing of the birds (birdseed is on the back porch). Big crowds of blackbirds tend to overwhelm chickadees and finches and woodpeckers at the seed feeders, but you may spot the smaller winged friends at quiet times.

- The oriole feeder can be replenished with the nectar to be found in the fridge (and yes, they do hang upside down to feed from there) and it also attracts hummingbirds.

And late at night, with your windows open to catch the soft sounds of the evening, you may hear the call of the owl or the howl of the coyote or wolf. We hope you will love your stay County Loyalist Farmhouse!

HISTORY

The original farmland was deeded to an officer of the British Army after the American Revolution. His heirs have farmed this land for over 200 years, building a home that started out as a modest cabin on this site late in the 18th century. When we purchased the property early in the 21st century we wanted to ensure existing heritage details were incorporated into the renovations necessary to its condition. These features can be seen in the post and beam construction of the “tail” where the kitchen is housed, the small side windows on the second floor originally tucked under the eaves of the roof, the ruby glass windows and the tin ceiling of the great room, the “tail” added to the rear of the house with its second staircase, to name a few. County Loyalist farmhouse stands as a testimony to the many people who have lived under its roof.

About Pamela Pastachak

We love summer water activities, history and exploring the country side. The County offers all sorts of opportunities to indulge us in these passions within a beautiful and relaxed setting.

Pamela Pastachak purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Pamela Pastachak chose Ontario

Intrigued by the history of the area, charmed by the pastoral nature of the County, we felt we'd arrived home when we found the farmhouse. It is hard to describe the peacefulness of the setting, where only the brids singing and the wind blowing through the leaves of the trees can be the only sound you hear. Yet there is so much to do when you feel like getting out and seeing things!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Noodle wars in the water, kayaking along the shore, sunsets on the dock that are beyond compare. Idling reading by the water on the cedar swing while a family of mink scampers along the shore. Fireflies. Rainy day board games or cut throat croquet on sunny afternoons. Watching the moon rise over the house as the fire sparks in the firebowl, an owl hoots on its way and laughter spills out as you flame your marshmallows. Sleeping with the windows open to the sound of water lapping softly on the shore. Knowing tomorrow you can do this all over again makes for the most wonderful sleep.

Lovely spacious home, perfect get-away

This was the ideal home for our girls get-away weekend! Spacious and well-kept, lovely property, pretty views over lake. Perfect place to relax after a day out in the County (wineries, shopping and antiquing). Thank you for sharing your home!

Girls get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a girls get-a-way. The farmhouse is warm and welcoming. There is nothing missing! In fact, we cancelled our dinner reservations because we wanted to spend as much time on the property as possible. We look forward to going again sometime in the future!

County Loyalist

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to add anything new in a review, the farmhouse is quite wonderful and the photos give a very good idea of what the house is like. The owner is exceptional in responding to queries and very helpful in giving support and direction to anything that comes up during the stay. We were there during Countylicious and for Terroir. Also highly recommended is the L'ill Bakeshop on the road from Picton to the farmhouse -amazing pies, jellies and jams.

A piece of paradise in Picton

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to arrive at County Loyalist farmhouse after having seen the gorgeous pictures of the place. We were not disappointed. Every nook and cranny was perfect...stunningly decorated, spotlessly clean, and incredibly equipped for comfort, convenience, and fun. We will be dreaming of the large, beautiful kitchen for years to come. The house was in a wonderful location for local day-trips, but the house and property were so nice that it was tempting to just "stay in". My parents, in their mid-80s, felt at home right away and were very comfortable. They enjoyed sitting in the sunny little seating area between the kitchen and dining room every afternoon. The owners have lovingly restored this amazing property and clearly go all out to care for it, and make it warm and inviting for their guests. Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to share your special place.

200 year old house

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days in this lovely old home and loved it. Ages ranged from 16 months to 86 years old. Loved the open concept kitchen, dining room and little conversation nook. I think we spent most of our time in this part of the house. Unfortunately weather did not cooperate for us to take advantage of the bikes etc. but did manage to visit cheese factory, cider and winery.
