Get away from it all in style -
A gorgeous, artistic home on waterfront property available to discerning holidaymakers.
Five bedroom house with private grounds, on beautiful Georgian Bay, 2 hours' drive north of Toronto.
We have 10 years experience renting to discrete, comfort seeking vacationers. The spacious house has 5 double bedrooms, each decorated with real art, the inviting beds made up with egyptian cotton linens and custom comforters.
Jump out of bed and wade into the refreshing waters of Georgian Bay, try the sea kayaks and paddle to nearby Christian Island, or bicycle to a nearby farm for fresh eggs and natural honey, or horseback riding!
At mealtimes you can BBQ on the beach firepit, or on the outdoor gas grill, and dine outside on the teak deck furniture, while admiring the sunset - a different spectacular show each evening!
If you happen to get the odd rainy day, indulge in the room-for-2 steam shower or soak in the antique clawfoot bathtub. Or dig through the collection of old vinyl LP's and use the record player, or watch one of the movies - guaranteed to be at least one old favorite or something you haven't seen. There is also an extensive library of books.
The property is surrounded by trees making it very private, There are different nooks and crannies to tuck yourself away into, with hammocks, benches or loungers, or the swing, where you can sit with you book and your gin and tonic.
The back of the house features a herb garden and a small veggie patch that you can help yourself to. Other food supplies are available in quaint local village Lafontaine, which features an amazing gourmet food boutique with local delicacies.
Oh! And something to note - very few mosquitos visit us! Probably because of our location with a gentle breeze off the water.
NEW! A large and bouncy, Austrailian technology trampoline!
