Property description

This wonderful heritage farmhouse, built in 1904 by the owner's great grandfather was restored in 2010. The restoration maintained most original features including woodwork and the original kitchen cupboard. The house is also furnished with original antiques that have been in the house since it was built. There are three spacious bedrooms, (1 queen, 1 double, 1 dbl/single bunk) sleeps 7. The main bathroom features a luxurious claw foot tub and large glass shower with a rain shower faucet. A second, 2 pc. bathroom on the main floor also features a washer and dryer. Custom built kitchen cabinets with all amenities, including dishwasher and laundry. Geo-thermal heat and central air.

This house is on a quiet country setting close to a beautiful, Lake Huron beach. Getting to the sandy beach is just a short, 10 minute walk or a quick bike ride. In the summer months enjoy the outdoor living space on the spacious 2 level deck with BBQ. The house sits on the original farm, still owned by the family, so there you can enjoy the peace, quiet and space of the property.

This property is a seasonal vacation property, (spring, summer, fall), so if you are looking for peace and quiet in the country, this vacation retreat will provide this. Go for a sunset scroll on the beach or a hike through the bush. Lake Huron offers some of the best sunsets in the world!

We are located half way between Kincardine and Goderich, (15 minute drive each way), both being beautiful Lake Huron coast towns with many shops and restaurants. There are many golf courses in the area and you can also enjoy puttering through the countryside and visiting some Mennonite farms who provide lots of produce and baked goods. This property is also only 1/2 hour from The Blyth Festival and 70 minutes from Stratford.

The location of the farmhouse is known for having the lowest light pollution south of Wiarton so it is perfect for star gazers!

Longer rentals also considered.

About the owner: The farmhouse was built by my great grandfather, Alexander MacKenzie. It is a beautiful location to have a quiet and serene vacation or weekend retreat. My husband and I travel a few times during the year and always book our accommodations through VRBO/HomeAway. As a traveller using properties on this website, I hope that I can provide a positive experience for those of you using my farmhouse! I live close by in the small town of Goderich so am always available.
