Harmony House on the South Bay of Pelee Island is a place to unwind and reconnect. It's a place for families large and small, for couples, for hikers, bicyclists, fishermen, swimmers, sunbathers and bird watchers. (PLEASE NOTE. Our large cottage only rents for 1or 2 week sessions during the summer season. No weekends. This is not a B and B. Thanks.)
The five-bedroom cottage sleeps 10 and has a fully equipped kitchen, living room with fireplace and a family room. The family room is air-conditioned but because of the constant breeze from the lake all the rooms are usually cool and comfortable.
Outside, where you'll probably spend the most time, is a large grassy lawn with shade trees, and an observation deck overlooking Lake Erie and the clean blue water that stretches as far as you can see. In the morning from the deck on the break-wall, you'll take your cup of hot tea and watch flocks of geese, cormorant, great blue herons, gulls and egrets feed in the sandy shallows. In the afternoon you can sunbathe, read, play cards or swim in the warm shallow water. Perhaps you'll take a bike ride along the shore to the public beach, or the old lighthouse. Maybe you'll want to tour the winery, or go to the museum which tells about the history of the island and about the endangered and rare wildlife that find a home here. Some days may want to rent bikes or kayaks. or perhaps charter a boat and go fishing.
Pelee is famous for rare birds and butterfly migrations so bring your binoculars. In the evening you'll watch the sunset from the deck and roast marshmallows over a campfire or if you're in the mood, head for one of the local restaurants for a fish dinner and some music. Before bed go back out to the deck to look at a sky full of stars.
The cottage has 5 bedrooms, one with a king bed, one with queen, one with full size, and two with twin beds. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer. Also available, TV and VCR. If you have a boat you can dock at Dick's Marina, which is a short walk away. You can fly to the island or make reservations for the ferry, which runs several times daily, from Canada or Sandusky, Ohio.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

- We ask that people bring their own linens, sheets, towels, pillow cases for one king, one queen, one full, and 4 twin size beds or however many you will need. Most of the cottages on Pelee Island seem to do that anymore. Housekeepers on the island are at a premium and many clean more than one cottage in a day and do not have time to wash all the sheets. ...moreless

Pelee Island is in the Western Basin of Lake Erie. There is something magical about an island. Maybe it's the light. This is a quiet place with about three places to eat, a few lively bars and a winery. If you like peace and quiet and want a time to relax and reconnect this is for you.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: The Harman's, Tom and Patsy and three grown boys (and now grandkids) have been coming to Pelee Island since Tom was in his OB/Gyn residency at Case Western University in Cleveland. We now live in WV but get to the island fairly often. Tom is still in practice and Patsy, a nurse-midwife, works part time in the office and is an author of memoirs and novels.
Why the Owner Chose Pelee, ON, Canada:
What we love about Harmony House is the peace and quiet. The South Bay is not crowded with beach houses like some parts of Pelee Island. We have 2 1/2 acres of lawn and trees. The bay attracts all kinds of water fowl, so bring your binoculars!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house is larger than most cottages on the island and can host about 10 people. There are two living rooms so you don't all have to sit in one all the time. There is no screened in porch, so if you can bring a screen tent you might like it. We have one, but can't leave it up when we aren't there because of the wind. From our deck on the breakwall you can see both sunrise and sunset. We love it.
