Why Terry Moore chose Kingsville
Maybe it was coincidence, maybe divine intervention, but Terry grew up in a small township not far from the area called Blytheswood, a few kms from Leamington & Kingsville. The Moore family is related by marriage to the "Scratch" clan that were part of the early settlers in the area.

Cottage for kids and pets
We were very pleased with the cottage. It was a relaxing and my family had a great time. The fishing poles , canoe and paddle boat were big hits. The cottage had everything we needed. The water level was higher than first expected but once we got used to it we still had fun.
Great location, amenities lacking
We didn't really have the most comfortable stay and we were quite tolerant of the situation, by trying to make the best out of it. The area was very beautiful and we had fun at the lake, despite having an uncomfortable stay at the cottage. The day we had got in, it had rained in the morning and early afternoon, and the canal outback was flooded, with water and duckweed all over the deck, and onto the grassy area. When we got in, we discovered that AC was portable units not central in the home, so we cranked them up, along with the the dehumidifier that was left one to deal with the dampness in the house, and within the first hour of being there the fuse for the kitchen and fridge blew. Terry was helpful in troubleshooting when we called. This happened 2 or three more times on the first night. We tried making dinner that night, and the oven gave us some problems, working for a bit and then turning off, the BBQ ignitor wasn't working and we had to use matches, it was also extremely dirty and we had to line it with tin foil. For the three days we were there we basically couldn't make use of the dock because it was literally flooded the entire time. The bikes had deflated wheels and there was no pump, and one of them didn't have a pin cover, when we did manage to find a bike pump from a neighbour. The cleanliness of the places was quite poor as well, but we were prepared for some cottage living and brought some cleaning supplies with us, we re-washed the majority of the towels, because they were dirty and moldy smelling, there were cobwebs everywhere, but what really ruined it was ants and insects getting into our food! The straw that broke the camels back was flooding on the final night, the water had risen so high that it got into the back bedroom from the back door, there was a suit case on the ground that needed to be completely re-washed with everything in it, the water was also getting in through the back near the head board of the beds, and it wasn't safe to sleep in the room, we all ended up cramming in the other two rooms and the couch, and hopeful it would stop rising. When I messaged Terry to considered refunding us for the one night, my request was ignored. Overall we weren't able to make use of the majority of the amenities, and our stay was uncomfortable with the cleanliness issues and the flooding.
Lots of space, and easy to find. The owners are friendly and easy to talk to before and during the stay. Our small family enjoyed our fews days here.
Nice house but can be subject to flooding

Watching the fish jump and the ducks herons and birds right from your patio is amazing!
My only suggestion is a new teakettle and a safety rail across the dock.
