Property description

This all season, waterfront, executive, country home faces westward over the lake to tree covered, pristine sand dunes. The house is nestled amongst majestic 150 year old trees and is located just off the oldest road in Ontario. A large treed area across the road from the house complete with marshy inlets and historic 19th century relics is excellent for walking, birdwatching, fishing, biking, paint-balling or birdwatching. There is a major 40km bike trail by the cottage which goes to Picton. Located in scenic Ameliasburg, in Prince Edward County, Ontario, the fully furnished home is spacious and cozy. The lakefront on the property is ideal for families and children, and also has the atmosphere for a girls weekend, small corporate retreat or a romantic getaway.

The 2,000 square foot bungalow has three generous bedrooms and two full bathrooms, including an en-suite. There is a large 20 by 24 foot living room with cathedral ceiling and large stone fireplace, a six person dining room, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, stove with oven and microwave. The house has central air and vacuum, and in winter is fully heated. There is a covered deck and a large open deck off the living room, complete with a four person hot tub. A heated out building near the deck is a games room, complete with a pool table, table tennis, foos-ball and a dart board. The house comes complete with use of a gas barbeque, firepit, 16 foot canoe, 12 ft fishing boat with outboard motor inflatable dingy, fishing rods, bad-mitton set, lawn chairs and bicycles. Some firewood is provided.

Relax and listen to the rustling leaves as a warm wind gently blows over your body. Sip a cocktail at the water's edge as the sun slowly sets over the water and dunes. Later, have a campfire in the firepit, bask in the hot tub, listen to the stereo, watch a movie, sing karaoke or play pool.

Play family games and sports on the lush grassed area on the property and later cool down with a swim in the shallow sand bottom lake waters.

This home is completely self sufficient with linens, bedding and supplies provided. All you have to do is just bring your bathing suits and camera.

In the morning, the first thing you will notice is the singing of the birds. In August, sit in the hot tub and watch stars fall from the milky way. In fall and winter, build a warm fire in the stone fireplace and curl up with a good book and a glass of local wine. Great in winter too - cozy, skiing and snowboarding nearby.

The local area is unique and captivating. Enjoy the world class sand beaches of Prince Edward County. North Beach is within 10 minutes and Sandbanks Beach is 25 minutes away. Go birdwatching at nearby world famous Presquille Provincial Park. Numerous local wineries provide samplings, tours, wine sales and fine dining. Go golfing at one of the many of the local golf courses, including Timber Ridge one of Canada's top 100 courses. Shop, dine or enjoy a cultural event such as an art gallery, museum, or cafe in one of the quaint historic towns such as Bloomfield, Wellington or Picton.

Visit an agricultural Fair such as the Milford Fair or buy local produce, meat, vegetables or baked goods from a local farm. In winter enjoy walks on the nearby beaches or adjacent woods, cross country skiing, downhill skiing/snowboarding,snowmobiling and the many local winter cultural events, health spas, and fine dining.

About the owner: We are a family with 3 children ages 18, 17, and 14 who have been summer residents of the County for 27 years. Once you have visited the County you will be hooked.

Why the Owner Chose Ameliasburg:
Prince Edward County is unique. It has everything. It has beaches, golf courses, wineries, birdwatching, hiking, lots and lots of history and heritage (the cottage is located just off the oldest road in Ontario and there was a fort from the war of 1812 just around the corner from my cottage), lots of cool stores and funky restaurants and the cottage itself is very homey and relaxing. A couple of interesting facts about the County: - it has 800 kilometres of scenic coastline - Sandbanks Provincial Parks is home to the world's largest freshwater sand dunes - Prince edward County is an an emerging epi-centre for new world wines with over 20 wineries and more coming - it has lots of heritage and was home to United Empire Loyalists and Sir John A Macdonald - Presquile Provincial Park near the cottage is one of North America premier birdwatching sites, especially waterfowl. - Battawa ski hill which is neaby was founded by the Batta family who created a global empire making shoes. Battawa has a reputation as a small but very good place to ski and snowboard.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You are close to many things and it is easy to get to from the 401. You will not be bored at my cottage.
