Another great visit to Prince Edward County. Our second time staying at this property. Easily brought our own boat, which adds so much to the lake experience. House is exactly as pictured, with a wonderful view & lovely rooms, huge deck, great beds, & everything a cook would need. When the weather is poor, plenty to see in nearby towns & wine to drink!! Thank you for an amazing getaway!!
The cottage was beautifully appointed for a very comfortable stay for our two families.
The property was ideal. It was large enough to accommodate two families with enough rooms for privacy and family gathering rooms for coming together. The cottage was well equipped with everything you would need for your stay. The owners made sure to leave brochures and literature on things to do in the area should you choose to venture away for the day and we took advantage of this by spending the day at the gorgeous Sandbanks Provincial Park. The only downside during our stay was the water quality in the lake. The algae does build up along the shoreline and with little ones it is unfortunate as we mostly kept them on the deck with their wadding pool. This wasn't much of a big deal for them as they were content. Though for the adults we did want clear water to swim in so we didn't really go in. Overall though the cottage itself was perfect for our stay and we had a wonderful week regardless of the water. For some this may be an issue but you could always swim a bit further out to get clearer water.
Thanks for the great review. In mid to late August some years, the water can get like that depending upon humidity and, as such, can vary from day to day. Next year we plan to install something called an Aquathruster under the dock that should, fingers crossed, create a very large arc of beautiful clear water even in late summer.
Such a relaxing week in paradise. Lovely spacious home with spectacular views, beautiful water, and such a quiet peaceful location. The best.
Our group of 7 adults and 1 baby spent a week in Prince Edward County at this fabulous home. Everything about the property was first class from the oversized outdoor spaces to the beautiful interior decor. Wonderful memories were made and we hope to return again in the future. Thank you Luc for providing quick responses to all of our questions and the lovely bottle of wine, we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Slice of Heaven
We absolutely loved being in your little slice of heaven! Great space for our group. Such specular water views from almost every room and such amazing outdoor areas. Had such a good time in the cottage (resort home!) that we forgot to shop or go to the wineries....will have to return! Thanks for such a perfect setting for us to make more memories.
Amazing property! The cottage is incredible, very clean, stylings are right out of a Pier One or Pottery Barn catalogue. Was perfect for our family of 7. The location is very secluded and private which we loved. You can fish right off of the dock. I would have given it 5 stars, but the water had quite a lot of algae so we weren't able to swim right off the dock. We drove to the sanbanks every day which is about 40 minutes away. If swimming is important to you (which it was for us) please keep this in mind. The owner Luc, is fabulous to deal with. He responds to any inquiry very quickly. Really I can't say enough positive things about the actual cottage, the water thing was a bummer though. I would definitely go back, we would just be more proactive about renting a boat for the week. We weren't able to do it last minute as everything was booked.
Summer 2018 Update - We installed an aerator system in the water in June 2018 and the water has been beautiful every single day! Lovely clear water and no algae in sight!_______________________________________________________________________________________
Summer 2017 - Glad that you loved the stay and that you'll definitely be back.
The water in 2017 was different in some ways. Because of the record flooding in the Spring the dock was much, much closer to shore than it otherwise would have been. Normally it would be about 15 feet further out and deeper water would be at the end of the dock, which then affords direct access to clear water and great for swimming. The algae near shore can come and go, depending on winds, waves, etc. When we were here for our own 14 days in summer 2017 there were 13 days of clear water. Hard to predict.
Picton has all amenities and is a mere 15 minutes away and, to boot, allows you to take a beautiful drive through the County and see some beautiful countryside, charming old character homes, and some stunning waters views.
