Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 45 ft Pool

This picturesque country home is located 5 minutes away from Wellington on a quiet road near the junction of Highways 1 and 2. Delight in the spacious 2 acre property - perfect for short walks or exploring - as you enjoy the view from the beautiful hillside house.

Birdwatchers and simple fans of nature will love the abundance of birds that pass through during migratory seasons, while connoisseurs of wine will enjoy the advantages that come from being located in the heart of wine country. Enjoy the pottery, paintings, glasswork and craftsmanship of the artisans along the Arts Trail, then stop in at one of the surrounding towns to check out the shopping opportunities.

Take advantage of nice weather by going for bike rides on the trails around the house or swimming in the pool, accessible by the stairs from the back balcony or from the walkout basement. Spend the day using our croquet set or badminton net and then sit by the fire pit at night watching the stars and roasting marshmallows. If you feel like an outing, the house is located a short drive from Sandbanks where vacationers go to unwind, picnic, climb up the sandbanks and swim in the beautiful lake.

If the weather is inclement, the house has its own attractions. With a large flat screen TV and an air hockey/ping pong table in the basement, wifi throughout the house, as well as puzzles, books and board games you'll always have something to do.

While the house has a fully equipped and spacious kitchen with a well stocked pantry, eating out is always fun. Go for dinner at one of the great restaurants in neighboring towns and then watch a movie at the drive-in theatre or in the more modern theatres in Trenton and Belleville.

The Hillside Country home offers attractions for all ages and groups, making your holiday experience anything you want it to be. Contact us via email to discuss renting - we hope to see you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nancy, We absolutely LOVED our time in the county and in your home. It is gorgeous!!! The pictures actually do not do it justice. We loved using the pool, having dinners on the deck, hanging out in the lovely main room with our kids and family. You are perfectly located near all the wineries and we took daily trips to them all, in addition to trips to Wellington and Bloomfield. We spent tons of money at the Agrarian cheese boutique and the Slickers ice cream shop there. We are already talking about renting the house for same weekend next summer. Was lovely and quiet during the week. We went to Sandbanks one day and were the only ones on the beach!!! Thanks again - the home is perfectly equipped with everything we needed and my husband has already gone out and bought a Weber BBQ because he loved grilling on yours so much every night.

Excellent home & location, NEEDS BETTER MAINTENANCE...

  • 3 of 5

7-days, W/ 1 Yr Old, 3 Yr Old, & Dog;

This is a great house, but - at least prior to our stay - not sufficiently/well-maintained: 1) garbage overload -- 150+ wine bottles sitting in a hot garage = serious house-wide fly problem INSIDE the house, 2) long-time un-cut lawn covered in nettles, not safe for kids/dogs and not pleasant for the walk to the pool! 3) BBQ needs to be replaced or thoroughly cleaned based on the grease fire we had to put out...

The Owner fixed #2 HALFWAY through our trip, but the flies and BBQ were not / could not be addressed. This could be a great rental - one of the best in the county - if you can ensure the owners will not ask you to spend the first 4 of 7 days with uncut grass, and 7/7 days swatting flies and avoiding the BBQ.

What may seem like superficial issues to a full-time owner are more critical for the renter on their 1-week summer vacation.

You have lots of rental options in the county, I suggest you ensure that you are not dealing with this kind of stuff up-front or through your initial selection.

MISC NOTES:

- Property description, photos are accurate.

- Location is excellent for Closson-Chase, and for really any point of the county - you are dead center for the main attractions (vineyards, towns). That said, you do have to drive wherever you go - except you can dog-walk / run along their road for about 2k.

- View is stunning (sunsets!) - though a very large home now stands 150 yds from the back deck.

- That house has 2 friendly dogs, but if your pet is not well socialized I would be vigilant.

- Service up until our maintenance/cleaning issues was very good.

- Basement area is great for little ones running around.

- Bugs (other than houseflies) were moderate, would suggest mosquito-coils for the front porch and you probably would avoid bugs altogether. Sitting on that front porch until 10pm watching fireflies is a real treat.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We have replaced the BBQ and are working to make sure these other issues are better in future.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This country home was beautiful and roomy for my family vacation, which included seven people, from the great grandparents in their late nineties to our 2.5 year old daughter.

The house is very clean and well-designed with an excellent back patio for dinners as well as a lovely front veranda for reading and relaxing.

The pool was also hit with everyone.

We will certainly be returning! Thank you to our wonderful hosts for making this a memorable County experience for us all.

Great spot to stay in Prince Edward County

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this place. The house is clean and extremely well kept. Great central location with access to good cycling routes and close to all the major vineyards in the area. Also close to Wellington if you want to go out to eat. We had 8 people in our group and the place meet our needs.

Nancy is easy to contact and quick to respond any questions you might have.

We would stay here again and have already recommended to friends.
