Perfect family vacay in the county!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in quiet, but vibrant, Wellington just steps away from downtown with great restaurants, cafés, bike rental shop (shoutout to Ideal Bikes!), and groceries! Wineries, farmer markets, and the LCBO are just a short drive away. The house has character, charm, and is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We were 7 adults and 1 toddler with more than enough space for everyone! Highly recommended!

Just as described and shown in the pictures. The cottage is very well equipped with lots of great cookware and a nice BBQ. There were even some toys for our toddler to play with. Highly recommended!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a bright and clean space. We stayed here with 6 adults and 2 babies. There was endless amounts of space and things to do. We enjoyed the bikes, trampoline and keyboard. A 2 min walk to the main strip of Wellington and extremely close to wineries and local artisans. We would definitely stay again.
