                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Friends introduced me to the County in the '90's and while visiting, often drove by the cottage. I had fallen in love with the County during my visits there and when the opportunity arose to purchase a property, I couldn't resist. It is just as spectacular in the fall, winter and spring as during the summer, and I enjoy all seasons there.

                      Why the Owner Chose Picton:
                      It is nicely located near the Glenora Ferry which is part of the Ontario highway system, and I often take the ferry to the 'other side' to enjoy the waterfront drive into Kingston and beyond. The lot size is 10,000 sq ft and is directly on the waterfront which has some spectacular views and amazing sunsets. It is close to town, Lake on the Mountain, wineries, a selection of restaurants for all tastes, plenty of seasonal festivals, and of course, Sandbanks Beach!
