About the property

Private cottage-style home in Prince Edward County

Our cottage is located in one of the BEST locations in Prince Edward County! Only minutes to Sandbanks Provincial Park, Bloomfield shopping and restaurants, wineries, and close to all convenient amenities in Picton.

The setting is private with lots of yard to run around, play games and enjoy relaxing by the dock. There is a large deck for BBQ-ing and lounging.

Inside the cottage is an open-concept living room and kitchen. The living room has a flat screen TV with satellite and there is a DVD for use (bring your own DVDs).

There are 2 master bedrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) and an upstairs bed room with bunk-beds, perfect for the kids. Please bring your own bath towels. Linens are provided for an extra fee.

A beach pass is provided for use to the Sandbanks Provincial Park, which is a short drive down the road and it is one of Prince Edward County's main attractions.

Wineries are everywhere in Prince Edward County. Our cottage is in a central location to make a day-trip to either side of the County wineries.

Restaurants abound in Prince Edward County. The cottage is close to many excellent restaurants in the area. Picton is a short drive (7 mins), Bloomfield is very close drive (3 min) and Wellington (15 mins).

If you have a boat, bring it! Our inlet is a protected cove just off West Lake and from our property you can boat to the Sand Dunes. We offer a canoe for use.

If relaxing is your thing, this property is for you. It is private, peaceful and full of nature. Rabbits, ducks, and deer are regularly seen on our property.

The birding is world-class. We have seen cranes, orioles, owls, woodpeckers, geese, and we have a family of swans that nest in our cove every spring.

We have an outdoor fire-pit for campfires. All around, this is the best cottage for enjoying your Prince Edward County vacation.

About Dan and Shannon Bisnaire

We are long term residents of Prince Edward County now living outside of the area. We visit PEC often and enjoy all of the unique areas to visit. From beaches to wineries, we think Prince Edward County is one of the best places to visit in Canada.

Dan and Shannon Bisnaire purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Dan and Shannon Bisnaire chose Ontario

We love our cottage and it's our home away from home. It's a private, scenic cottage-style getaway with the beach down the road. One of the best locations in Prince Edward County. Bring your boat and you can boat from our property over to the Sandbanks. Great area location for Bloomfield and Picton shopping and many area wineries.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a private cottage on Westlake to book for you and your guests. Great area fishing, and canoeing. Sandbanks beach is down the road.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed 7 nights and we were delighted with the house and the property. Complete privacy and tranquil outdoor space with plenty of room for our family of 6 adults plus dog! Living space was perfect, and the evening breeze cooled the ground floor bedroom with no ceiling fan. Sunsets spectacular. Encounters with swans while canoeing..magical!

Great cottage for 3 or less people

  • 2 of 5

The cottage has a great open concept layout and the location is great. We would not go back, however, due to the fact that the two downstairs bedrooms were so musty. The dehumidifier in one of the bedrooms was required to be on at all times but that made the room very hot and noisy and didn't seem to help the moldy smell. I would recommend this property if you just used the upstairs bedrooms.

Owner's Response: One of the downstairs bedrooms has a dehumidifier and an air purifier that we request be left on for the guest's comfort. It's simply an extra room if guests need it, but there are 3 other lovely bedrooms.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Just what we were looking for in a country cottage. The beds were comfortable and overall it was a clean, cozy cottage. We liked that it is located on a private lane way close to Sandbanks.
