Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We were going to rent this house on a permanent basis. But we couldn't bear to... It's too wonderful. We want to spend time there too. So we're making it available for vacationers, and we'll be there when you aren't.

Why the Owner Chose Prince Edward County, ON, Canada:
NOW BOOKING 2015 ***PLEASE NOTE: An inquiry is not a booking! A booking is confirmed only when a reservation agreement is signed and the initial deposit received. This protects everyone in the event that we receive several inquiries for the same week.*** Our 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 summers were 100% occupied (please read the reviews) and we expect 2017 will fill quickly. We would be delighted to hear from you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A perfect day: Rise to the mist over the bay. Then off to explore the gallery at Huff Winery. A visit to Bloomfield and Wellington for unique shopping. Then a couple of hours on the sand banks catching the sun. Stop at a local winery to sample and select wine for dinner. A visit to one of the local county markets for the freshest meats, vegetables and fruits, then home for dinner on the deck, watching the swans sail regally by, and then looking up at more stars than you've ever seen before. And so to sleep in the perfect quiet of a County night,. Tomorrow? Golf and boating. Or maybe the area museums. A visit to Picton, or even Kingston. Or just relax at Hawthorn Cottage, swimming, crafting and scrap-booking, reading, playing games, and re-charging the batteries with family and friends. You can do the rest tomorrow. Or on your next visit.
