Sophiasburgh chateau / country house description

Come and be our guest for our third season at Stillwood Creek and have an unforgettable vacation in Prince Edward County. Breathe in the fresh air and experience the sense of stillness and peace that surrounds our century old farmhouse. Cycle the pretty country roads or fish for bass in the creek that runs behind the property. Step across the street to visit an antique shop, read in the shade of the wrap-around porch or gather by the fire pit on the stone patio in the evening.

This home is perfect for two families or a group of friends renting together because there are 7 beds (2 queen size, 2 3/4 beds and 3 singles) in 4 sleeping areas, two full bathrooms, a playroom, a large living and dining area and a modern well-equipped kitchen.

Other amenities include bicycles, fishing rods, several flat screen TV's for movie watching, washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, barbeque, wine fridge, high quality sheets, linens, towels and duvets.

You will be a short drive away from the wineries, cheese factories, restaurants, art galleries, white sand beaches and many other tourist attractions that bring people back to Prince Edward County year after year.

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About: We bought our other property (Stillwood Farm VRBO #376983) in 2004. It was a case of love at first sight and we have been spending most weekends in the County ever since. We work in Toronto and plan to retire in the County.

                  Why Sophiasburgh:
                  We have a very large family so this property is used perfect for family gatherings when it's not rented. We fell in love with the property the moment we saw it. It's hard to describe but the feeling you get there is one of peace.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  This house is a good jumping off spot for whatever you would like to do in the County. It's in a lovely location beside a fresh water creek and a short drive and convenient cycling distance from the beaches, wineries, restaurants, cheese factories, and towns of Prince Edward County. It's about a 1/2 hour - 40 minute drive from Sandbanks and a short cycle or walk to Big Island in the Bay of Quinte. The kitchen is well set up for cooking and the property has been used several times for writing retreats and as a reception area for weddings.
