About the property

Similar latitude to Northern California, you are visiting one of Canada’s best wine regions…

wander in complete solitude along the beachfront bluffs on the north shore of one of the Great Lakes…

quiet, laid-back living and natural beauty abound located within a birders paradise. Observe mass seasonal migrations of countless species…

take a relaxing drive through the low traffic country roads, stopping at local vineyards for wine tastings and local farm stands for seasonal produce. Some of these stands are not even manned. Take what you need and drop your Looneys into the provided cash box, the honor system rules…

drive to the charming and well known town of Stratford for some theater, then head back to your solitude, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves lapping at the shoreline...

Nice Location for a Long Weekend Away Along With Our Dogs.

  • 5 of 5

A pleasant cottage located with a view over Lake Erie. Situated off the main road, peaceful

with all that is needed for a weekend ( or more ) away. The cottage itself is tidy and well supplied with kitchen needs and linens etc... Located near several very nice local, Provincial & National Parks there were many options to explore & walk our two dogs. We were lucky to have a good stretch of early October fall weather with warm days and mild nights. There is direct access to the beach below the property although we did most our beach visits at the local parks. A very welcome break in the action at a perfect time of year.

The owners were nice and helpful. Thank You.

Terrific cottage in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage for anyone looking for serenity. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, beautiful lake views with sunsets over a peaceful wheat field behind you. Very clean, comfortable with a great lakefront deck and BBQ. We spent 4 nights and enjoyed our time very much, location is close to Point Pelee National Park which we visited and loved.

The owners were great to deal ...highly recommended.

We appreciated the beautiful view of the lake as well as the access to the water, the windy bay (that kept the flies away), the cosy cottage quite isolated from neighbours... And dog friendly.All in all, i do recommand this cottage. Micheal was a great host !!
