Property description

The 1300 SF rustic cottage is on a 1/4 acre piece of property on Big Island, Bay of Quinte in Prince Edward County, accessible by road.  It is a 15 minute drive to Picton and close to surrounding wineries, cheese makers, antique stores, galleries and nice country restaurants.  We are on the water, with a dirt road between our front yard and the shore.  The shoreline is pebble; wearing water shoes you can have a nice swim since it is on the bay the water isn't too cold.  There is a grassy area with a picnic table at the water. Our has been installed this season and is a great spot to experience the area's excellent fishing.  Close to beautiful beach at Sandbanks park.

Couple of things to note for this Summer:
The umbrella pictured on the deck in the photos, was broken and has been removed.
There has been a Fire Ban in place most of the summer. Check online for updates.
The tub faucet needs to be run for a couple of minutes before using. When the water to the tub has been run for a while, harmless sediment builds up and the water is grey.

- 3 Bedroom; story-and-half
- Sleeps 7 + 2; dbl fold-out in Living Room 1x queen; 1x queen & 1x single; 2x single
- 1 four-piece bath
- fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher
- sunroom with dining and sitting areas over looking lake
- BBQ
- cedar play-set in backyard
- tons of board games
- flat-screen T.V. with DVD player & surround sound
- no phone or WiFi, good cell reception
- water treatment system installed last season to mitigate sulfur odour in the water

We hope our guests enjoy the tradition of cottaging in Ontario; our property is not a house, it is a charming space that has many quirks, typical of a cottage. If you are looking for a luxury home with A/C, WiFi, in like-new condition, there are plenty listed in the PEC area.
