Colchester house description

This is an immaculate vacation home for rent, on a quiet street, only a one minute walk (less than one block) from a sandy beach, pirate ship playground, park, splash pad, and marina.

We are in walking distance of a lakefront restaurant, general store with ice cream and candy, a bar and grill, and another family style restaurant, and a beachside snack bar. The public beach is quiet and feels very private. This area is a birder's paradise, with Hillman Marsh and Holiday Beach Conservation Area close by. Golf course is also nearby. There are fishing charters and winery tours available. We are surrounded by many beautiful wineries.

Located in the village of Colchester on the shores of Lake Erie - just 35 minutes from Windsor and 45 minutes to Detroit, Michigan. We are just West of Kingsville, and Leamington.

2 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 1800 square foot home, 2 storey, modern open floor layout, all ceramic floors.

Accommodates 6 people. We can provide a queen size air mattress if needed.

Discover the local wineries, countryside, Lake Erie, Point Pelee National Park, and Pelee Island. Enjoy walking, biking, boating, fishing, bird watching, swimming, spashpadding, or playing at the pirate ship playground.

This is an ideal peaceful setting for a romantic getaway, or a great place for families.

A convenient location - easy to find - County Road 50 - just 8 minutes South of Holiday Beach Conservation Area. 20 minutes south of Amherstburg.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              Why the Owner Chose Colchester:
              This is the perfect area to explore all the wineries, and small towns from Windsor to Point Pelee - a very pretty area. Also, it is not too far from our home so we can stay as often as possible to enjoy the countryside. We enjoy having our children & grandchildren come to fish and enjoy the beach, and they just love it.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              In July we enjoyed spending time at Klassen's Blueberry Farm, picking blueberries. It was a fun day, ending with blueberry pie and ice cream at the beach. In September we will visit Holiday Beach Conservation Area to see the Hawks. We enjoy visiting the many wineries in the area.
