PLEASE NOTE THAT THE VRBO WEBSITE IS SHOWING ALL CANADIAN PROPERTY PRICES IN U.S. DOLLARS. The actual price is $4500 Canadian dollars for the week inclusive of taxes, cleaning etc.. To view the Canadian dollar price look in the 'Rates ' section and change the rate to Canadian. We apologise for this and are hoping VRBO will revert to Canadian dollar prices soon.

Built by Mr Harmonious Fox in the late 1800's,the house was constructed with an independent space for his mother (the west wing).

It is an ideal spot for touring the many vineyards, restaurants and beaches of The County. Additionally you can enjoy fishing (with some of the best pickerel in Ontario in the bay), cycling, canoeing, photography and bird watching.

Large, airy characterful rooms are a key part of the charm of this very attractive country retreat. The bright and spacious eat-in kitchen is a pleasure to both prepare food in and to eat, socialize and catch up on all of the day’s activities. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything a family could need including coffee maker and a cappuccino machine , new stainless steel fridge freezer with iced water, crushed ice and cube dispenser . Enjoy the high end Hi Fi system and recently installed broadband internet (Jan 2015) .The hand made cherry wood table has seating for up to 12 people.

Walk through the sliding doors onto a large deck complete with 2 tables, 12 chairs, sun lounger and large BBQ. This deck has wonderful direct views of the meadows and water.

On the main floor there is also a large and comfortable living room, complete with board games, puzzles and books together with High Definition satellite tv and blue ray dvd player.

From the living room you can walk through sliding double doors into the West Wing .
This part of the house was built by Mr Fox for his mother who lived with the family but had some independence, and can also be entered through a separate door from the garden . This is a lovely bright room with plenty of space to relax in a peaceful spot away from the rest of the house . Read a book and enjoy the views to the lake across the meadow. Up a separate staircase leading from this room is the West Wing bedroom with 2 Queen size beds . There is a full bathroom with jacuzzi bath on the main floor . The West wing has a sunroom with full size table tennis table.

Off the living room is the main floor bedroom complete with a bay window overlooking a meadow that fronts the water .This room has a queen size bed and an en-suite three piece bathroom with shower.

Back to the main house ,on the main floor there is a two piece powder room and laundry room with washer & dryer and a sun-room with both a foosball table and a hockey table.

On the second floor there are three bedrooms. The first is a large bright bedroom with a queen size bed and an en-suite three piece bathroom with shower.

The remaining two upstairs bedrooms are also good sized. One bedroom has a queen bed and satellite tv. The other bedroom has both a queen and twin bed. These two connecting rooms share a four piece bathroom and a walk out to the top balcony with stunning views of the bay.

Our guests now have the benefit of our newly installed heated swimming pool. The pool is salt water, so there is no nasty chlorine ! It is 32 feet by 16 feet with a wooden deck surround. The pool area is fully enclosed with a safety fence.

The property is completely private and has several trails that enable to you wander through the woods or meadows at your own pace. Perfect for gentle exercising and relaxing and enjoying the sights & sounds of nature

The vegetable garden has 4 raised beds with seasonal tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, beans, lettuce, herbs to be enjoyed by our guests

The shoreline is a 5 minute walk from the steps at the foot of the deck. There you can access the lake and launch the kayaks.The lake is very shallow near the shoreline and is sandy bottomed with some rocks. Water shoes are recommended.

A public boat launch is at Northport only 1 km. away and County Shores RV park (3 minutes drive) has boats for hire by the half day. Picton is a 20 minute drive. Local wineries are mostly within a 30 minute drive, Sandbanks Provincial Park is about 30 minutes.
