About Eric Andersen

Live in Toronto

Eric Andersen purchased this house in 2002

Why Eric Andersen chose Ontario

The property is my second home, in the area I grew up in, and plan on returning to.

What makes this house unique

Location location location - huge property with tons of privacy, yet in town. There is a forested hill, a large yard for a soccer game, and a great place for a fire (10 chairs). Also, Meaford is a great quiet town, yet close to Georgian Bay and lots of recreation and tourist activities.

Beautiful home

Our stay at Eric's place was phenomenal. The place is very clean and has everything you need for your stay. The location is superb. Walking distance to the main city and 20 min to blue Mountain. Would stay here again and again!

a cozy rustic retreat 3.5/5

  • 3 of 5

We had a very relaxing time here. The house came as described, was clean and ready for us. It is very charming with old wooden floors and rustic post and beam in some areas.The house is in a very quiet area and is a short walk from most of the town--- harbour, the parks and beaches. Meaford does not have any night life if there isn't an event at the Old Town Hall so don't expect to go out after dinner unless you want a dairy Queen. However it is a short drive to Collingwood or Owen Sound.

The linens and beds were so comfy--the master bedroom had an A/C unit which was great in this heat. A long soak in the claw foot tub or a quick shower in the downstairs bathroom started our day. The kitchen was well appointed with all kinds of dishes, pots and utensils.-- with seating for 6-8 and the deck could seat 6 quite easily. Having a BBQ was great.

The deck was wonderful for afternoon sun and evening conversations. The backyard was large and provided plenty of room for our granddaughter to run, to play Frisbee or catch and enjoy the swing. There was a fire ban so we didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the fire pit.

There are lots of day trips from here--hike old Baldy in Kimberley, Eugenia Falls and the waterfall tour, many craft breweries and wineries, Grey Roots Museum and the Pioneer village, the barn quilt tour etc.

The Sizzler Restaurant is a good choice as well as a couple of neat coffee shops downtown--also several chains too. There are also lots of other good restaurants in the surrounding area.

We were a family group and there was lots of space for everyone to find a spot. There is no TV/DVD but lots of board games were provided by the owner.

Thanks again for a great time allowing us to reconnect with family.

Quiet and restful retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Eric's country cottage is well described and was clean and fully equipped. All enquiries were answered promptly. Being an older property it has some interesting and rustic features and we very soon all felt at home. We did not miss the telly or wifi. Thanks for loaning us your cottage Eric. If we lived a little closer we would be back very soon. Regards, Nick and Norma (from the UK).
