About Joe RIchards

We are a family who enjoy our time away together at the lake house. As the operators of a summer camp and retreat facility, we understand the importance of having opportunities to get outside and spend time with friends and family.

Joe RIchards purchased this house in 2012

Why Joe RIchards chose Chatham-Kent

Growing up near the lake was a big memory for both of us. Having a place to go, relax and just be with family is important - this house is our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the view of Lake Erie, the private beach, the neighbourhood and the closeness to Rondeau Provincial Park. Being far enough away from the business of urban life, but close enough to all needed amenities sold it for us.

We love your Lake House - wonderful place to relax and "get away from it all"!

  • 5 of 5

This Lake House is the perfect place to go for a fun family getaway. The lake is just across the lawn and so amazing to look at from the deck at anytime of the day! Absolutely everything you need (& more) is provided - just bring food and your toiletries.

Wonderful, clean, quiet Lake House with everything you need for your time on Lake Erie.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are a fantastic family who know how to look after you! Clean & quiet house with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, tons of seating, big well appointed kitchen, 2 decks, linens included, washer/dryer, A/C (if needed), shelves of board games & books, and a spectacular view of Lake Erie with a private beach. All you need to bring are your clothes, a bathing suit and your groceries! We have now rented this house (with another family) 4 summers in a row and will continue to do so until our kids move away. Thanks Joe and Jen!

Exceeded my high expectations! Beautiful relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness... this is the most wonderful cottage. It was so well suited for our family vacation & our guests that visited. I grew up in this area, & wanted to rent a cottage that my immediate family could enjoy & relax in, as well as somewhere big enough that my family that lives nearby could pop in for a visit & a Timmies. :) This cottage was perfect for that! It's light, bright, airy, clean, well appointed, well equipped (the kitchen & supplies are better than mine at home!!), & has a gorgeous walking beach. We hunted beach glass, fished for perch from the beach (caught buckets-full... YUMMY!! fish fry!!), rested, enjoyed the view, put our boat in at Rondeau multiple times (thank you for letting us use the cottage Rondeau pass) :) , lounged on the porch overlooking the lake, played hundreds of games of crokinole, cribbage, & euchre... the list goes on & on. I'd definitely rent this cottage again. We just loved it! Thank you so much Joe & Jen. You've thought of everything!!!

Paradise Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My second visit to this Lakehouse. First with my children and recently with my three best friends for a "Girls' Weekend." Pristine clean, roomy, fully stocked place. I loved the morning sun and view of the water from the main living room picture window. Multiple sitting areas for a variety of activities such as games, movies and dining. I only wish I could talk the owner into selling it to me!

Winter bedding was deluxe as well. I'll be back just as soon as I am able to do so.

Shelly,

Denver, Colorado ( grew up on Lake Erie )

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful time at your cottage. So clean and bright. Nice big rooms to accommodate the 6 of us and more. Fully stocked kitchen with everything you could need. Just a lovely spot, with the beach across the road, and a large yard to play bocce and ladder toss. Great decks and chairs. The weather was fantastic, so we were able to spend lots of time outdoors. Great walking area. Wish we had time to go to the park. Hope to stay again soon. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful place.
