About the Property
3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps Maximum
Please Note: There is a maximum occupancy of 6
Our paradise is a 100 year old home. This cottage is a comfortable, spacious and somewhat rustic experience. As you can see in the Owner description area - I personally love it beyond love. It's for this reason that I want to share it with people. We cannot be there all the time (yet), so we are offering it to rent.
We have all the basic conveniences of home including appliances, cookware, pots, pans, dishes, glasses - etc. Please see the amenities list for full list.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The water on the majority of the island is not potable. Our water comes from a well, however we do not recommend drinking from the tap especially during seasons where there are blue algae blooms. We provide a water cooler with at least two jugs of water per week for drinking and cooking.
Understand that this is an island in the middle of lake Erie that is largely made up of natural habitat. That means gnats in May, fish flies in June, mosquitoes, spiders, snakes bees etc. in addition to the beautiful butterflies, birds, foxes, dragonflies and other more palatable creatures. If you are an experienced camper you will now that the nightly sweep for spiders and mosquitoes that came in during the day or that emerge at dusk is something that is a part of cottage life.
Am I trying to scare you away? Not at all! However, it will break my heart to hear that you were disappointed in some fashion because your expectations were not aligned with the realities of island life.
The number of renters who enjoy and rave about their experience far outweigh those whose expectations fall short, but I would like to see 100% satisfaction for all who stay with us.
Thanks for looking us up and here's to wishing you a wonderful vacation!

This is a great location if you have children. The beach is shallow, sandy and 100' outside the front door. The marina has a nice pier that is great for fishing - and is only about 150' from the front door. We have lots of room, lots of games, activities and movies....moreless
Non Smoking Only:
Out of deference for those with allergies, we ask that, if you smoke, please use the designated area at the back of the property and ensure all debris disposed of in the containers provided. ...moreless

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: In August of 2014 we visited Pelee Island for the first time and it was a bonafide case of love at first sight! Fair warning to anyone who's never been there before - you may fall under this magic spell that makes you never want to leave! Two months later we were the proud new owners of what I call our "little slice of heaven". We can't be there every moment, and a place like this needs to be enjoyed, so we decided to share our blessings with others by offering it to rent for your next family vacation! I'm guessing that we're not much different than most people. We work hard, raise our children, have bills, love our family time and simply want to make good things happen in the world. We love to have a nice vacation that can include our almost grown offspring, but the logistics become a bit tricky when working around those late teen, early 20's work, school, social and travel schedules! If we booked a tropical vacation, they couldn't come at all and YOWZA what a bill that would be! Not to mention the hassle of flights, luggage, transit - makes me want to break out in hives! So here's this island with sandy beaches, sunshine, waves crashing into the shore, a spacious, comfy space to relax in, a nice ferry ride that will have you relaxed and ready to vacation when you arrive, little to no traffic once you do arrive and some of the friendliest, welcoming people on the planet!! This is a place to be savoured and enjoyed - much like the world class wines that you will find at the winery if you so choose. If you are quiet and take your time, you might even be lucky enough to spot some of the many rare flora and fauna - some of which exist only on Pelee Island. Truly a place to be once experienced - loved! You may end up becoming a neighbour if you are as lucky as we are!!
Why the Owner Chose Pelee Island, ON, Canada:
Our location on the island is perfect for us! It's far enough away from the main dock so that it's quiet and peaceful, but it is close to many of the conveniences such as the Co-op, marina, Scudders Tavern and bakery. Our beaches are sandy, shallow and the North Shore has been the calmest shore in our experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the big front porch with all the windows, the gorgeous sunsets, the beautiful breeze that seems to always be coming through the kitchen window, the blue "breakfast room" which I use for doing crafts when I am there, or playing board games.
