Property description

Enjoy our four-season updated turn-of-century 3 bedroom farm home in the heart of Wellington, steps away from restaurants, the Drake Devonshire and a grocery store, and a short drive from wineries and beaches. New kitchen and baths, original floors and hardware! Even a romantic and cozy gas fireplace!

Our farm home was built in the late 1800s and retains much of its original form and character, including the floors, moulding and hardware; the kitchen, bathrooms and gas fireplace are all pretty new, making our cottage a comfortable and unique place to relax in Prince Edward County.

Guests will have access to gas fireplace, A/C unit in master bedroom, free wifi, dishwasher, microwave, huge natural gas barbecue, a kitchen stocked with dishes and cookware etc, parking, a large yard with a picnic table and bistro set, a 32' flat screen HD TV, Apple TV and Netflix, large soaker tub, a queen bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom, two twin beds in the third bedroom, a complimentary Provincial Parks beach pass, front porch with four Muskoka/Adirondack chairs, a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board.

Wellington is tiny and cute and is right on Lake Ontario, meaning: beaches! The village beach is a ten minute walk, and Sandbanks and North Beach provincial parks are short drives. There are also great wineries and restaurants very close by. A sweet playground on the lake is close and good for young families. The village also has galleries and a wonderful little café. We LOVE that you can walk for three minutes and enjoy the best restaurants in the County (nobody should have to be DD when vacationing in wine country). People affectionately call Wellington 'paradise' — we definitely agree and hope that you will too!

You can easily walk to the main street, accessing the grocery store, restaurants, the Drake Devonshire, hardware store, pharmacy, café, salon/spa. Beaches and wineries are a very short drive away. Picton is a 25 minute drive and it has more shops etc. if you need them.

Cottage is available for minimum 2-night bookings year round, except for peak season; we can only accept weekly bookings in peak season. 2015 peak season is from Saturday, June 27th-Saturday September 6th. For peak season we have a SATURDAY check in/checkout policy. All long weekends require a 3-night minimum stay. Rates are much cheaper in the off season -- please inquire!

Please leave our cottage as clean as it was when you arrived. Weekly rentals only in the high season, with a Saturday 3:00 pm check in and and checking out the following Saturday at 11:00 am. No smoking, no pets. Linens and towels are not provided, but we do provide duvets with covers for each bed.
