Guestbook comments from the owner

To Nancy and Gary

This place is really fun and awesome!! I played with all the toys and I like the puzzles. The purple bed was also really comfy. I espesily liked the colour. And the chalkboard was really cool! The view in the morning is nice. You guys are lucky that you get to live next door and see it every morning. P.S. We also love all the soaps here!!

'The perfect place for a getaway – a day trip from Toronto or Ottawa.' In MacLean's Canada TOP 10 Places You've Got to See! (2014) Prince Edward County is located in Southern Ontario at the eastern end of Lake Ontario. It is an island community encompassing less than 700 square kilometers (270 sq mi), with over 800 kilometers (500 mi) of shoreline.The permanent population is approximately 25,000. We share our spectacular natural beauty with over 100,000 visitors each year. A popular attraction is Sandbanks Provincial Park, attracting thousands of visitors on hot summer days. The island community has retained a unique character that evokes fond recollections of days long past. Idyllic country roads wind through historic towns and villages, countryside dotted with farms and vineyards, past artists studios and antiques shops, and along shorelines that border Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte.

Beautiful cottage and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Gary and Nancy have a terrific waterfront property, perfect for a getaway in Prince Edward County. We stayed at Lilac Shores for a wedding, which was only a five minute walk away (at Fields on West Lake). The view is incredible and calming.

Gary and Nancy also made sure all our needs were taken care of. I forgot my phone charger at their place -- I assumed I would never see it again, but Nancy actually mailed it back to me! What a nice surprise and a thoughtful move from a great host.

My family and I celebrated Thanksgiving in Lilac Shores. The home is beautiful, cleaning, bright and airy. The view from the back sun room is breathtaking! Same view from the two bedrooms upstairs.

Gary and Nancy do everything they can to ensure that you have a great vacation. I will DEFINATELY be making another reservation in the futre.
