Walk or bike some of the many trails and conservation areas. We are located on the Waterfront Cycling Trail, along the shores of Lake Erie.

During the summer months (on Sundays) take a chair and listen to free local music at Two Creeks Conservation Area under the stars.

We have tried to equip the cottage with all the necessities, bedding, sheets, towels, etc. There is a fridge, stove, microwave, washer dryer, forced gas furnace, central air conditioning, phone, 2 televisions, portable radio, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, dinnerware, utensils, propane and charcoal BBQ, fire-pit, plenty of DVD's with DVD players in both the living room and the master bedroom.

We have a huge deck for relaxing with a glass of wine and watching the sunset; and don't forget our Lakefront Whimsy Park, a waterfront lot just to sit and enjoy the view of the lake. We have kept one area just for the birds, with lots of feeders to attract them, there is always seed in containers on the deck, so feel free to feed them; they are our joy to watch and if you sit quietly little hummingbirds will flutter at their feeders.

If your looking for a relaxing getaway ~ and love the quiet and beauty of nature, any season...give us a call ...

About Valerie & Ken Read

We love our little cottage and because of busy lives we would like to share it with others with similar interests, birdwatching, nature, exploring, antiquing, walks, cycling, beaches and quiet times relaxing.

Valerie & Ken Read purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Valerie & Ken Read chose Ontario

We have alot of outdoor space we are continually working on. We have kept an area just for the birds with several feeders and enjoy sitting back with a glass of wine, listening to the waves watching the sunset and enjoying the nature around us....

What makes this cottage unique

With so many things to do and see in the area filling a week is never a problem. We Love the quiet peaceful atmosphere here and hope you do as well. Please respect the neighbors and the environment, by not littering. We ask for your compliance regarding known allergens, there is No Smoking inside the cottage, pets sadly are Not allowed on the premises and although Wheatley is known for its great fishing we ask that fish of any kind be cooked only on the outside grill, not inside the cottage. We respect the fact that there are quests with allergies, as in our own family so we would like to make this a pleasant & safe place for everyone. A home away from home feeling ~ Thank you

Great, comfortable place close to birding hotspots

  • 5 of 5

Great central point for a birding trip, close to Hillman's and a short drive to Point Pelee, with Rondeau about an hour away. Nicely appointed and supplied and way more than roomy enough for the two of us. Big deck and grill area gave us our choice of 3 places to eat comfortably outside.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I Recently stayed at Nesters with my family and we had a wonderful time. The cottage is refurnished and looks great from the inside. The property is huge and provides a wonderful view of the lake and a farmers field. It is only a few minutes walk to Hillman's Marsh beach.

My family and I enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning in the future.
