Why Jackie and Craig Elliott chose Picton

Enjoy near zero traffic and remarkable peace and quiet, while being so close to all the action and attraction of the County. Many birds pass through and you will have a great chance to see: Baltimore Oriole, Trumpeter Swan, Blue Heron and many other species. The warm waters of the lake and spectacular stars make midnight floating on the Party Island one life's truly great moments.

What makes this house unique

You will love the interior stone wall, stretching up 21' to the ceiling peak. Cooks will enjoy generous food prep area, and large refrigerator. Some kitchen basics provided are: salt/pepper, some spices, sugar, oil, vinegar and flour. Dishwasher, hand-dish and laundry soaps all supplied. Our first class water purification system provides good tasting potable water. Well behaved pets are welcomed if respecting guidelines. 4500lb boat lift for your use.

Cottage retreat in Prince Edward County

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Jacki and Craig’s cottage retreat. Great location and wonderful couple to work with.They provide all the amenities a group of friends/family could possibly need to enjoy this property. Even your family pet is invited to stay. They send appropriate information in a timely manner, and communicated as needed. A booklet is also handy that gives you many suggestions of things to do, in and around the Sandbanks area. Most importantly for us, was the fact that we were cooking in-house, and the kitchen was fully stocked. Would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking to enjoy the Prince Edward County area.

We enjoyed our time in Prince Edward County - so many wineries & galleries to visit. Loved staying on the lake. The home worked well for us - it was roomy, well equipt and we were glad we could bring our dog Ellie. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Lovely lakeside cottage with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place,

Jackie's house was fully equipped with everything we needed, even kitchenware.

The backyard was amazing with an amazing view of the lake and a private dock that came with a canoe and all the safety equipment.

Would definately come back for another quick escape from the city!

Owner's Response: We do have an oven in our fully equipped kitchen, unfortunately it failed the weekend prior to this Guest arriving. We had a technician in, but it was not repairable. We advised and apologized to the Guest in advance of their arrival, and would have cancelled and refunded if this was identified as a major issue. The oven has now been replaced. We view property maintenance to be a top priority and always strive to have the home prepped and perfect for our guest's arrival. Craig & Jackie

Beautiful lakefront property

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cottage. It was very clean and the views were spectacular. Pictures of the cottage does not do it justice! We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The backyard overlooking the lake was so beautiful. We look forward to coming back next year.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Had a girls weekend getaway and this was perfect. Right on the water, campfire, lots of space and clean. While we were only there for the weekend, would go back and spend more time exploring the area. So much to see and do.
