An architectural delight, this home sits right on the shore of Lake Erie. Gaze out onto the wide expanse of an open sky and ever-changing waters. Enjoy a stroll down the beautiful forested laneway, a bike ride on the nearby bike trail or a swim in the lake, it's the perfect getaway for the whole family. In season, you will find our nearby vegetable farm in full operation. A short drive will bring you to many attractions, wine country, festivals, and parks.

Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada

Our cottage sits up on a hill overlooking Lake Erie. We have southern exposure. The view is amazing all year round. It is always changing. The sky and the water will be different every time you take a look. The beach is very nice, mostly sandy but the waves can bring in the most beautiful rocks and stones. Great for collecting or just admiring. The entry into the water is shallow. Great for swimming or water sports. You can also take a long walk on the beach in either direction, (be courteous of the other landowners along the lake – it is all private)
The private laneway to the cottage is also very beautiful. It varies with open farmland and forested areas, this makes for great walks as well. Or if you prefer to go for a bike ride, the access to the Friendship Trail (bike trail) is right up the road.
Whisky Run Golf Club is just a block away. It’s a lovely golf course known as the friendliest in the Niagara Region.
Downtown Port Colborne, only 5 minutes away has many quaint shops, bars and restaurants. On Friday mornings we have an amazing Farmers Market. There are numerous other events such as the Thursday night car show, Art Crawl, Canal days Festival, fishing tournaments and much more. Look up the City of Port Colborne for a list of events. Take a stroll along the canal on West st. where you can watch as ships pass through the Welland Canal and Lock System that links Lake Ontario to Lake Erie. A public boat launch is in town near H.H. Knoll Park.
Niagara Falls is a 30 minute drive and has many attractions, casinos, nature trails and parks. NOTL (Niagara on the Lake) is 45 minutes away and features many award winning wineries and craft breweries.
Ridgeway/Chrystal Beach is only 10 minutes away and also has many great shops and restaurants as well as Brimstone, a Craft Brewery.
The Peace Bridge (Fort Erie/Buffalo) is a 20 minute drive.
