About the Property

One bedroom, one bathroom, 1 1/2 story, approximately 900 sq ft detached area

We have hosted a couple of hundred people since we have been inviting guests to share our space and we appreciate their feedback. Because people have been open and told us how we could improve, That is exactly what we have done! We changed up the furniture to include a total of four chaise lounge chairs where people can read, enjoy the view, watch TV, JUST RELAX! We are very happy with the new look and think that you will be too!
**RATES**--Please go to the rates page. If you are located in the US, the rate may show up as USD, We charge $110/night winter- $125/night summer as well as a $25 cleaning fee and a fully refundable $112 security deposit...CDN$ Yes, we are located in Canada. If you are coming from another country, you will need your passport. The tile floors can be cool so please remember your slippers!
***Please make sure you read the description of the property**** This is located in a residential area, with waterfront access - The Villa is not on the water, our main house is and you are welcome to walk to the waterfront using our house's side walkway.

Are you visiting the Windsor–Detroit area for business or pleasure and want to escape to a quiet retreat? This is your home away from home. Located on our private property, this was a 2.5 car, 1 3/4 story secondary garage that we have renovated. It is located about 3/4 of the way down our driveway between the road and our home. All the amenities of home are yours; full kitchen, propane BBQ, air TV, DVD player, bathroom with shower, washer/dryer, air conditioning and a king-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress. All of this AND a beautiful view of Lake St. Clair. In the summer, feel free to use the volleyball court or the horse shoe pit but remember that this property is a private area, shared with us and our neighbours, so loud partying is not appropriate. This property is most comfortable for two adults however, a third (over 10 years of age) person can be accommodated (we have a fold up cot the third person can use for sleeping). While we love animals and have a very friendly Labradoodle (Milo) as well as an Irish Wolfhound (Otis) of our own, we respect our guests with allergies to animals and for this reason, animals are not allowed inside The Villa. Please share with us the reason for your visit and tell us a little bit about yourselves.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about this accommodation and the area. While we share the same property, we can appreciate that you expect your privacy (as do we) and unless there is an urgent need, you will not be disturbed.
This is a quiet residential area and the main house is located on lake St. Clair (the main house is on the water, The Villa has water view and water access but is NOT waterfront) we are only 15 minutes to downtown Windsor or the Detroit/Windsor tunnel, 20 minutes to the Ambassador Bridge and 45 minutes to Detroit Metro Airport (DTW). Shopping, restaurants and a movie theatre are just an 4-minute drive away.

You will need a car or taxi to get around, especially if you are going into Windsor. The public transit is about 2.5km away.

Security deposit will not be returned if additional cleaning is required, if smoking is detected in the unit, or if keys are not returned.

**RATES***We set our rates based upon the area, the season, the amenities, the utilities used, and the cleaning time/charges we incur. We do not overcharge and feel our prices are reasonable. We are set on not "gouging" our guest and ask that you respect our rate policy. We are not a large hotel and can not make up for money lost on one guest because another overpays. Please do not ask us to reduce our rates, cut you some slack, or take cash. All payments must be made through the website that you are booking through and the rates posted are non negotiable. This is not only for our security but for yours.

Car: Recommended

This is a Renovated 1 1/2 story, 2.5 car garage. Ideal for the short term business professional wanting more of a 'Home' atmosphere as opposed to a hotel. It has one Bedroom, one bathroom, approx 900 sq ft, with full kitchen, propane BBQ, laundry area, flat screen TV / air reception, air conditioning and a beautiful view with access to Lake St. Clair.

Essex County has many summer festivals and events including dragon boat racing, Art in the Park, The strawberry festival, Explore the shore, car shows, music festivals, Point Pelee Bird watching, wineries and Fork and Cork just to name a few. We are conveniently located just one km from EC Row and 15 km to the 401. Getting to down-town Windsor and the Detroit/Windsor tunnel takes 15 minutes, the Ambassador Bridge, Academie Ste. Cecile, St. Clair College or University of Windsor is 20 minutes away, the Detroit Metropolitan Airport is 45 minutes away. Whether your visit to Essex county is business, pleasure, or if you are visiting family and want your own space you are sure to enjoy this peaceful retreat. The amenities of home are yours; this full kitchen has an apartment size stove and basic spices. Whatever condiments are in the cupboard are yours to use as needed. There is air TV and a DVD player with a few movies. We have a small collection of books to read and games to play. The bathroom is equipped with a good size shower. There is a full sized washer/dryer in the upstairs bedroom. We have a heating/cooling unit both up and downstairs and the bedroom also has a ceiling fan, a king-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress, and a decent sized closet. All of this AND a beautiful view of Lake St. Clair. In the summer feel free to use the volleyball court or the horse shoe pit in the summer but remember that this property is a private area, shared with us and our neighbors, so loud partying is not appropriate. This property is most comfortable for two adults however, a third (over 10 years of age) person can be accommodated (in a single futon). While we love animals and have a very friendly Labradoodle (Milo) and an Irish Wolfhound (Otis) of our own, we respect our guests with allergies to animals and for this reason, animals are not allowed inside the cottage. This property is most suitable for those looking for a quiet break from their busy lives or someone visiting family and wanting their 'own space'. You might even be able to get in a bit of fishing while you are here. It's great if you want to join the party down-town but relish your time away from the chaos! Please share with us the reason for your visit and tell us a little bit about yourselves.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a multi cultural family. While I was born in Detroit, MI and moved to the Lakeshore area as a young child, my husband George was born in Hong Kong and moved to Canada in his early 20's. We have lived in Phoenix, Utah, and found our way back home to Lakeshore in 2009. We enjoy travelling and with six children (now all grown) we learned that booking condo's, basement apartments, and houses were the best way to make our travels more comfortable. To this day, we prefer a 'home' as opposed to a hotel room when we travel (which is still quite often). Because we travel so much, we created an area that is exactly what we want when we are away from home. When We have company our motto is 'you are welcome to visit but you do your thing, we'll do ours, and if we meet for dinner, that will be great' we have found that our house guests (and us) are more comfortable that way. We enjoy alpine skiing, water sports, fishing, hiking, and just plain socializing, we learn so much from every encounter!

Why the Owner Chose Lakeshore, ON, Canada:
We bought this property because we absolutely love the location. We are close enough the city that we can go any day if we choose but we are far enough away that we can enjoy the peace and quiet of the country.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our home is nestled in a treed area so it feels as if you are living in a forest with the lake at your finger tips. The cottage is a secondary garage that we have fully renovated and even though we share the same property, the cottage is actually farther away from our home than many people's neighbour's.
