Wheatley cottage description

Similar latitude to Northern California, you are visiting one of Canada’s best wine regions…
wander in complete solitude along the beachfront bluffs on the north shore of one of the Great Lakes…
quiet, laid-back living and natural beauty abound located within a birders paradise. Observe mass seasonal migrations of countless species…
take a relaxing drive through the low traffic country roads, stopping at local vineyards for wine tastings and local farm stands for seasonal produce. Some of these stands are not even manned. Take what you need and drop your Looneys into the provided cash box, the honor system rules…
drive to the charming and well known town of Stratford for some theater, then head back to your solitude, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves lapping at the shoreline...
