About Jennifer Smythson and Jeff Shinozaki

Jennifer and I bought Echo Bay Cottages and the Echo Beach House 2 years ago on a trip through Prince Edward County. We walked onto the property and simply fell in love with it.

Jennifer Smythson and Jeff Shinozaki purchased this house in 2012

Why Jennifer Smythson and Jeff Shinozaki chose Ontario

For Jenn and I, we had vacationed in Prince Edward County for almost 10 years, 'cottaging' and renting a 2 bedroom cottage on West Lake. The 2 bedroom cottage was part of a larger group of cottages that we ended up renting with 2 other families. When Jenn and I came across Echo Bay, it was an incredible resemblance for us and felt 'right' for both of us. Echo Bay was the only property in Prince Edward County we looked at because we fell in love with it the moment we set foot on the grounds.

We've just finished hosting guests for our 2nd year now and we have throroughly enjoyed the experience. The guests we have most typically 'bonded' with are easy going, laid back, considerate, friendly, and full of integrity - our kind of people!!!

Within Prince Edward County, there is just simply so much to do. Jenn and I have been frequenting the County for over 10 years now and every weekend it seems we are experiencing something new.

This place is great for a group because they have a decent amount of beds and a great common space with open kitchen, dining, and living room. Location in relation to Picton and Sandbanks is great! We went during rainy weather and the area had incredibly higher than normal water levels so the outdoors were unavailable but amazingly, inside has tons of games, movie, books, and television! Only downfall are the mattresses. If anyone had back/hip problems I'd advise bringing a pad for on top of the mattress. Would book again!!

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with a great view. Owners had all the details covered and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Good location if you are visiting Sandbanks, Picton or doing the winery tours. Suitable for a family or a small group gathering.

Great family cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time with our family of 8 adults. The main floor was great living space large enough for everyone. Nice large lawn going right the lake. We enjoyed nights outside looking at the stars and enjoying the fire pit. Owners couldn't be more accommodating. Had a wonderful time!

Great Place, Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Great 4 days at Lakefront House, amazing view from living room and patio!

Swimming and kayaking from front of property and a 5 min drive to Sandbanks.

Property does share land with 3 other smaller houses, but that does not affect the stay.

Lovely cottage and great for dog owners and fishers

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully equipped, comfortable and spacious cottage. We loved the three-sided view and the easy water access. Our host was most welcoming and accessible. We look forward to further stays at Echo Bay!
