4 bedroom turn of the century country home is sure to exceed expectations of your family and friends. Recently renovated with all the updates you need for a relaxing vacation. Only a few minutes drive to Picton or Sandbanks. Amazing outdoor space with huge yard to play, a short walk through our forest trail leads you to our waterfront and private oasis with dock on East Lake.
We have the best of both worlds...old country farm house on 4 acres plus, like a cottage, we have 100 feet of shorefront on East Lake with your own private dock. This is perfect place for a getaway with great friends or an amazing family vacation. There is a massive backyard for playing soccer, croquet, bocce or just running about. We have a large fire pit to gather around in the evenings. Plenty of places to relax outdoors around the house...the front porch, back deck, outdoor BBQ and dining area, hammocks under the tree etc. Or head down the forest trail to enjoy some time at the water front. We have a picnic table, small BBQ, toddler swing, chairs and firepit here along with the dock for your personal use. The lake has a sandy bottom and is only a foot or two deep (depending on conditions) for hundred feet out, so is a great place for small kids to play about. Many hours of our summer were spent floating about on a lilo while the kids splashed about.
The interior of the house is beautifully decorated and super comfy. All bedding, towels and sheets are new and fresh. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare fabulous meals filled with fresh County bounty picked up at the local farm stands! You just need to decide do you dine indoors or outside :-)
Or should you just dine out, as there are so many great restaurants in the area to cater to all tastes and budgets. Whether it is Mike's Diner just down the road for a greasy breakfast or the Drake Devonshire in Wellington for an amazing brunch or dinner. Sandbanks is located just a 10 minute drive away. If you have not been before, you will not believe you are even in Ontario anymore. We are happy to share with you our tips for avoiding crowds and even our awesome 'secret' spot to enjoy a sundowner!
The entire 4 acres of grounds are at your disposal. The full house plus barn. Backyard which includes BBQ, large table with seating for at least 8, hammocks, swing set, tree swing and fire pit. The waterfront includes dock, toddler swing, picnic table, small BBQ for shore lunches, lounge chairs etc.

Our lovely neighbours Wayne and Melinda take care of the property for us, so you might run into them cutting the lawn or putting out the recycling. And if you run into any trouble, they can be over in a jiffy!

Hi! I'm Annabel and I own this awesome house with my sister Jessica. We just bought it in Sept 2015 after falling in love with the County a few years ago. We both love to travel and I have always loved to rent people's vacation homes vs. staying in hotels when I travel.
We feel in love with the County first and foremost for the wineries, but the fresh veggies stands, amazing restaurants, cute shops and Sandbanks really helped us realize this is the place we want to spend as much time as we can in to keep our family together.
I live in Toronto with my husband and two children, and my sister currently lives in Blue River BC. We hope you will enjoy our house as much as we do!
