This lovely beachfront home will more than fulfill your vacation needs of fun, sun and relaxation. Most of the rooms in the house offer unobstructed views of the lake and beach. Most of the house has been freshly painted. We have installed a staircase down to the water from the yard and we have built a wheelchair ramp to one of the decks.
The home is shaped like an 'L' with 2 very large family rooms at opposite corners of the house. The kids can be busy in one room watching t.v., playing video or board games while mom and dad can enjoy their own quiet space while still keeping an ear on the kids. We supply a tv with digital antenna, dvd player, a selection of dvd's, and high speed internet for rainy days but we think you'll be spending most of your time outside.
There are 3 bedrooms, two of which have a view of the lake. Two bedrooms have queen sized beds, the mattress in one being newly purchased October 2015. The third bedroom has twin beds both mattresses new in October 2015. The sofa/sectional in the family room can accomodate 2 people - so The Beach House can sleep 8 comfortably.

The home boasts 4 decks - 3 of them are around the house. The 4th is located at the edge of the property - where lawn meets sand. Beach chairs, a small table for your refreshments and an umbrella for shade will make this the perfect retreat whether you're watching the kids swim, watching them fish from the shore or watching twilight settle.

Linens and towels are supplied but you should bring your own beach towels. There is a washer and dryer in the home for your use.

The kitchen has been renovated and even washing dishes the old fashioned way can be fun when you can look out the kitchen window with a view of the lake. A newer stainless steel stove and fridge, coffee maker, toaster and microwave round out the kitchen appliances. We also provide a waffle maker, George Foreman grill and slowcooker along with an assortment of baking dishes.
There is a full bath with shower, sink and toilet and a half bath with sink and toilet. Your vehicles can be parked on a paved parking area which will hold four cars.

If you don't want to head out to a restaurant we provide a propane bbq for your use and the firepit on the beach is just the thing for night time marshmallow roasts.

Pt. Pelee is a wonderful place to explore and you will have the use of our family pass for the duration of your stay. Hillman Marsh is also close by and great for kayaking or canoeing. Grab the bikes, jump in the car and head to Kingsville to catch the Pelee Island ferry. Spend the day pedalling around this lovely island and discover restaurants, nature, fresh air and wine tasting.
We keep coffee and tea stocked in the kitchen so that you can enjoy your first morning on the deck in the sun without having to head into town for groceries.We also provide paper towel, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, dish soap, laundry soap, hand soap, coffee filters and garbage bags.
This property is a wonderful place for a family reunion, a group of adults travelling together or just a couple.

This home, on the southern edge of Wheatley provides the quiet and relaxation of a small town while being close enough to Leamington for shopping and dining.

Pt. Pelee and Hillman Marsh are both within a 20 minute drive. The border to Detroit is a 45 minute drive.

The front yard is a lawn merging into a sandy beach which is a great spot to launch your canoe or kayak. The surrounding countryside is flat so why not try exploring on your bike? For the locavore, the area abounds with farms, farm stands and pick-your-own fruit and produce opportunities. There are several local fish stores which sell fresh and smoked fish if you don't want to catch it yourself. Leamington is 15 minutes west and offers a larger selection of restaurants and shopping. Further west of this is Amherstburg (about 25 minutes away) with a great waterfront, some lovely dining opportunities and historic Ft. Malden.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Kevin and Pauline grew up in southwestern Ontario. We purchased this lovely property to rent until we are ready to retire into it.

Why the Owner Chose Wheatley, Chatham-Kent, ON, Canada:
This house is all about the wonderful, wide sandy beach and a layout that is terrific for families and larger groups traveling together. Whether it's a group of birders in spring or fall or a family reunion/vacation - this home is large enough. Views of the beach are available from most of the rooms in the house. This is also a great place for birders. Bring a group. It's only 25 minutes to Pt. Pelee National Park and 10 minutes to Hillman Marsh.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
We love this house for the views of the lake, the sandy beach, the large and airy principal rooms and the fact it's out of town but not too far away. The Beach House is well designed for families who want to be together but have some private space (inside or out) when they need it. You can view Pt. Pelee from the beachside deck. The home is in a year round community so you won't feel isolated. The property is on municipal water and sewer. You can drink the tap water. If it gets too hot there's central air conditioning.
