Welcome to a one-of-a-kind deluxe family-friendly cottage located in beautiful Prince Edward County.
As the most expensive rental in the County, we are told by our many repeat guests, that it is well suited for families looking for a unique "it has everything" cottage experience.
This renovated dog-friendly cottage is on scenic West Lake facing west to catch the beautiful sunsets. It’s minutes drive away from the beaches of Sandbanks Provincial Park and close to the shops of Picton and Bloomfield.
At 3,400 sq. ft. and five bedrooms with three bathrooms, it easily sleeps ten people - max allowed - (in 1 King, 1 Double and 1 room with 2 Twins upstairs and 1 Queen and Double downstairs - all with closets) and is perfect for families to share.
Spend your day at your own private waterfront. There is a shallow entry to water which is safe for swimming so everyone will have a blast. Younger children will love using their water toys. Read or relax in the hammock by the shore watching boats go by or if you're “hooked” on technology, know that the cottage internet reaches right to the waterfront! You can also lounge on the 50-foot dock (with ladder) while taking in the beautiful view or cast a line to test your luck. Go ahead and take the canoe for a spin or try your hand at the paddle board.
Enjoy the large covered balcony off the kitchen with its large dining table that seats twelve. A separate patio near the water is perfect for serving your BBQ lunch and a balcony off the master bedroom is great for that morning coffee.
During the evening gather the family around the extra-large fire pit at the waterfront and enjoy truly amazing flame patterns from the historical County steel factory canning bucket.
You will love the sunny fully equipped “chefs” kitchen overlooking the water. It has everything you need including: dishwasher, convection oven, ice maker, Kitchen Aid mixer, Cuisinart, roasting/baking/lobster/cast iron pans, high-end waffle maker etc. etc. Multiple sets of china with silver, unique local artist serving platters and table linens allow you to create special memories over dinner.
Or, just relax on the kitchen’s comfy chairs reading one of the many cookbooks while enjoying a glass of local County wine as you chat while meals are prepared.
If you would rather, spend the day lounging on the living room’s large overstuffed goose down filled sofa while you watch movies and drift off to sleep. Or, listen to streaming music on the cottage’s Sonos wireless stereo system.
Enjoy three large Smart HD TVs with over 700 channels turned on including: HBO, The Movie Network, TMN, and all kid’s specialty channels. In addition, each TV plays Netflix (subscription included) for your binge-watching enjoyment. Finally, for those who need even more screen time, have fun watching the large collection of DVD movies.
Head downstairs to the well-appointed media room or to the adult’s card playing room to use the wet bar/fridge - all while enjoying the view.
Of course, truly amazing deluxe cottages have tons and tons of “fun” things to do with friends. So, on the other side, you’ll find a fully equipped games room for the kids as well as a separate area for the provided books/arts/crafts/board games. As the entire wall is a gigantic White Board, the kids will have endless fun drawing pictures of their daily adventures.
Everyone is sure to enjoy the modern Avatar pinball machine, ping pong, pool table, air hockey, foosball and “bar quality/tournament edition” soft tip dart machine/Pac-Man etc games and a commercial Shuffle Alley machine. Plug your video game system into the third HD large TV, use the wi-fi, and if you shut the privacy door you'll never see the kids for the entire week!
Still bored? Try a game of croquet or horseshoes or let the kids go biking (included) or bounce on the large – enclosed – trampoline which sits outside nestled among the trees right next to the swing and the second hammock. Go ahead and let the kids eat breakfast on the balcony of the Tree Fort "condo". Yes, it has wifi.
And finally, if the kids can’t find anything to do at the cottage, within a five-minute walk is the local County water park and wakeboard school for lessons and tubing.
Included in your rental (only a partial list):
Two Sandbanks Park car day passes, beach towels, supplies ranging from lighters for the fire pit to batteries to ink for the printer, a complete and full range of items for the kitchen (including baking supplies)/laundry room supplies, extra towels/sheets, lots of firewood etc. etc.
Our cottage, in our opinion, is far from any type of a “commercial/bare bones” rental. It is fully equipped no different as how we use it.
The cottage has laundry facilities as well as Central AC.
