A cozy cottage with spectacular 180 degree view of Lake Ontario, located near Picton and Bloomfield, in the midst of town and wine country.
This water side house was inspired by and has been recently restored to the feel of a gracious turn of the century upscale sea side Guest house with extensive use of cedar and vintage wood on the interior. We call it “West Water Place”. It is located conveniently in the beautiful water front vacation town of Wellington Ontario, on a quiet street directly overlooking majestic Lake Ontario. West Water place offers a stunning uninterrupted 180 degree lake view from every room and cool breezes when the summer is hot. It’s just steps from shops, restaurants and ideal for cycling to wineries as well. In addition, this small town meets all your daily shopping requirements, food store, pharmacy, and vegetable market, LCBO, all within easy walking distance from your cozy cottage.
Watch the sun rise over the famous Sand Banks Provincial Park while listening to the waves breaking along the gently sloping limestone shore .A perfect place for swimming, directly in front of your house, or body surfing/ wind sailing when the winds are up.
Enjoy the long summer night from the sun room or deck admiring the moon’s reflection on the lake, and the melody of the happy sound of the waves.
This luxury vacation home offers all modern day conveniences, and has been totally updated in every way. As you enter into West Water Place you are welcomed by a large open concept living room/dining room with original beam ceilings, old pine floors and a comfortable mix of antique furniture. You will be greeted with an unobstructed southern exposure view of the beautiful Lake Ontario from every room. Directly off the dining room is the well laid out kitchen equipped with dish washer, antique pantry/ sink and all cooking utensils ready and waiting for the cooking enthusiast, again with a full view of the Lake. After a busy day on the deck or entertaining friends, satellite TV. and VCR awaits you to relax and catch up on the news or take in a movie.
A spacious main floor bedroom suite with double bed and attached three piece bath with walk in shower and washer dryer adds to your convenience and is ideal for seniors or those who are stair challenged. A beautiful antique door leads directly from this room to the large deck, for you morning coffee or viewing of the wild life on the water in front of you. (Our favourites are the swans)
Best for last , completing the main floor is the majestic sun room , with wall to wall traditional windows featuring an amazing view of Lake Ontario, as if you were gazing from a cruise ship onto the ocean. This is the room you will use for breakfast and lunch or to sit in out of the sun or weather, all the while enjoying the breathtaking view, and the sound of the waves.
The gracious stair case with antique banister, the kind you used to slide down at grandmothers house, takes you to the second floor where there are two additional large traditional bed rooms each equipped with a queen size bed and a single bed, again with two windows in each room overlooking the lake. The upstairs spacious bath room features a claw foot antique tub with shower and vintage sink. All bed rooms have fine linen and fluffy towels, always fresh and clean. The spacious hallway provides plenty of closet space.
The large south facing ground floor level lake view patio deck, directly off the sun room and ground floor bedroom, is complete with BBQ, and wooden Muskoka chairs, and has a large cast table and chairs ideal for outdoor dining , lounging with a book, or just taking the sun.
You will love it.
Charming cottage with a beautiful view! Great location: quiet and close to everything we needed. Plenty of space for the whole family. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for a most lovely stay, it was perfect. Good location, stunning view, comfortable bedrooms, ample space and kitchen well stocked! We really love the feel of the place, so warm and welcoming, truly charming!
Lookig forwrd to our return.
Sincerely, Stephanie and Jeremy
A lovely, cozy home only steps away from the lake and downtown Wellington. We had a wonderful week exploring PEC and coming back to this home base every day. The house is very quaint with lots of wood trim and antiques. Mike and Jasna were great to deal with. We would love to see a queen bed in the main floor bed room (rather than double) and a lakeside opening window in the same bedroom to fully appreciate the sound of the waves at night. A second couch or loveseat in the living room would be great too. These are all minor suggestions to make the rental a five star rating. Highly recommended.
We two (one semi-retired, one fully retired) ladies thoroughly enjoyed our stay at West Water Place! This charming house came fully equipped with all amenities we have in our own homes. We particularly loved sitting on the bench across from the house in the evenings with our glass of wine watching the sun set. The sun room was where we spent most of our time reading, chatting, doing jigsaw puzzles (yes, we found it in the cupboard!). The very short walk into town was a delightful way to meet people who were also vacationing. The owners of the local "watering hole" - not a hole, by the way - were very gracious and very knowledgeable about the Wellington area. We experienced the fine dining at the Drake Devonshire - a short one block away from the cottage. We really appreciated the washer & dryer as we had short term guests coming and going at various times (first guest arrived Saturday, left Sunday, second guest arrived Sunday, left Wednesday, last guest arrived Wednesday and left on Friday). All loved the location and the accommodation and falling asleep at night to the sounds of Lake Ontario's crashing waves! We are all now talking about a repeat visit next summer.
We (6 adults) recently spent a week at West Water Place where we found the cottage to be as advertised. It is rustic but very charming, comfortable and well equipped (we had everything needed to cook good meals). This is a very beautiful spot right across from the water where we enjoy taking coffee outside in the morning, last glass of wine at night and feel asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore in comfortable beds. Thanks to Jasna and Mike ...very nice owners to deal with. We are planning a return soon.
Nous (6 adultes) avons passé une semaine fantastique dans cette maison rustique mais très propre et très bien équipée. Elle est identique à la description fait sur le site et avons rencontré les propriétaires sur place qui nous ont reçu avec chaleur. La cuisine pleinement équipée nous a permis de cuisiner des festins à tous les soirs. Tous les matins nous prenions le café assied dehors en face du lac, le dernier verre de vin après souper également et l'on s'endormait dans des lits confortable en écoutant le bruit des vagues. Nous avons visité vignobles, boutiques, artisans, jouer au golf de Picton et passé des après midi à la plage de Sandbanks (cette plage m'a beaucoup surprise...eau propre et chaud avec fond de sable...j'avais l'impression d'être dans le Sud mais à 4 heures de chez moi.). Merci au proprio Jasna et Mikel pour votre belle accueil et à bientôt pour sur.
We had great vacation at West Water place. The location is fantastic. We enjoyed our time in this wonderfull cottage. It is a very nice place. We had time to do some winery, art gallery, wellington beach, sandbanks, Bloomfield, Picton, etc... but when we came back to the cottage after a day out, we couldn't resist to the view of the lake, the sound of the waves and the peace and quiet place.
Thanks to Jasna ans Mike for giving us the opportunity to discover the County !
