This is a rustic, homey, self-catering cottage on 3 levels. The main floor includes kitchen, dining area, sitting area and bathroom. The lower level includes fireplace and 2 pull-out couches. The upper loft has a queen mattress. Deck with BBQ. Only 12 minutes from Upper Canada Village, a major heritage attraction.
This cottage is located on a small 68 acre family farm where the main crops are strawberries in the summer and apples* in the fall. There are also chickens, including two roosters, a large vegetable garden and beehives. Seasonal use of a canoe in the quarry, limited swimming is available. The quarry has a dock and the water is fresh and clean until about mid-July. After that the water warms up and has lots of seaweed which some find unswimmable. For winter guests, the Eastern Ontario Snowmobile Club trail crosses the farm, with access to 435 km of groomed signalized trails.
*Fun fact: The McIntosh apple was discovered in 1811 by John McIntosh only 10 km away (as the crow flies) on his farm in what is now Dundela, Ontario.
Free run of the farm. Seasonal canoeing and swimming in quarry. Lots of open space.
