Perfect Escape - great view, great house, great lo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Wellington Beach House for seven glorious weeks in June and July. The house is great - well appointed with comfortable furniture, powerful A/C (though I rarely turned it on as there is a great breeze off the lake), and well equipped kitchen (even the knives didn't disappoint and those are usually awful in a rental property).

The house is conveniently located right in the town of Wellington, so you can walk to Grocery Stores, restaurants, the amazing Saturday Farmers Market, bakeries, ice cream shops and a fantastic playground for the kids (truly you would never need to get into your car). Wellington is conveniently located within the county, close to lots of wineries, the shops in Bloomfield, and very convenient to Sandbanks.

A walk to nearby Wellington Beach was a great way to start the day. The backyard is huge, and down by the water, you truly feel removed from the world - which is what you want on a vacation.

Heather and Mike are great owners - helpful with suggestions about what to do, and diligent about maintenance of the house.

I stayed in the house with just me and my dog (who thought he was in heaven), with 1 extra adult, with 2 extra adults, with 2 extra adults and a kid, with 2 extra adults, a kid and an extra dog, with 1 extra adult and a kid. Kids aged 3, 4, 6 and 7 were all happy. Adults both active and sloth were happy. The active ones made use of the nearby Millennium Trail, the sloth made use of the Muskoka chairs down by the water. Almost everyone who came into the house took one look out the huge picture window in the den as said something along the lines of "do you just sit here all day and look at that view?"

I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family - and will certainly consider returning myself.

Fantastic Fall Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and on a gorgeous property in the centre of the bustling town of Wellington . Beautiful great pines to sit under or a comfortable place to sit down at the beach to view the lake and the Sandbanks in the distance.

Prince Edward County has so much to offer : wineries, beaches, trails, great restaurants, shopping and markets. Our favourite restaurant for dinner was Soup Opera right in the town of Wellington.

We were blessed with incredible weather and had a wonderful holiday touring down memory lane.

Lots of fun - property exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and functional - and lots of fun. Did not expect to have such a big property. Water was an added bonus because we had unseasonably warm weather in September. Fire pit was lots of fun too. Great location - walked to town for coffees and to rent bikes.

for a nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in a very convenient location, close to all the vineyars. It is clean and well equiped. It is just at the beginning of the village so very quiet. The yard has a spectacular view of ontario lake and at one block of a little Beach.

I would definitely recommand this place!
