Enjoy this cozy, elegant waterfront property located minutes away from downtown Amherstburg with its shops, quaint restaurants, parks and historical sites. This main cottage can be rented alone, or with more than 9 people, guests have access to the bunkhouse. This cottage is right in the heart of wine country, golf courses, breweries, and bird watching. Wind down at dusk on the spacious covered front porch which boasts incredible sunset and freighter views, and a great space for conversation.

The space
This Airbnb has been designed and renovated by award winning local builder, Coulson Design Build Inc. It is a gorgeous, upscale home with top of the line material - quartz countertops, custom tiles and hardwood floors. Once you step into this tranquil home, you will be drawn to the outdoors with the floor to ceiling windows that boast a spectacular view of Boblo Island at the mouth of Lake Erie and the Detroit River. Enjoy the view of freighters, boats, yachts, birds and other wildlife as they pass on their usual route under our covered porch, or open your windows and fall asleep to the peaceful sound of waves crashing along the shoreline at night.
Enjoy family dinners in the open concept space that includes a custom kitchen, living room and dining area. Much attention has been spent on detail so guests can appreciate a relaxing get away in a special space that feels like home. Extra space is offered in the bunkie for those who want some extra privacy.

Guest access
For those who book up to 9 people, you will have access to the MAIN COTTAGE.
The MAIN COTTAGE includes 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms and sleeps 8 people in beds with an additional person on the couch (an additional $50) and starts at $369.

Bedroom #3: two bunk beds all with twin mattresses

For 10 people or more, you will have access to the BUNKHOUSE.
This 450 square foot space is located closely behind the house and has it's own heating and cooling system. It includes an additional space that contains 5 more beds, one full bathroom and sleeps up to 8 people. It can only be accessed with the house when there are more than 9 people in the party.
Bed #1: Queen bed (2 people).
Bed #2: Bunk beds - double on the bottom, twin on top (2 small people + 1 person).
Bed #3: Bunk beds - double on the bottom, twin on top (2 small people + 1 person).

This home is located across the street from the river, but is still waterfront property as there is private property across the street with a small stretch of grass and a picnic table for relaxing by the water. You can swim/float at your own risk. The current is quite strong the further you go out into the River, as it is located on the Detroit River.

Other things to note
Feel free to bring your own non motorized watercraft which you can attempt to launch across the street. For motorized watercraft, there is a marina just down the road where you can launch your boat/seadoo. Currently there is no dock. Bring your own lifejackets as they are not provided.
Lawn chairs may help make the most of the waterfront as well. There is a gabian basket break wall, so scuba shoes are recommended when getting in and out of the water.

DO NOT USE THE ADJACENT DOCKS AS THESE PROPERTIES DO NOT BELONG TO US AND YOU WILL BE TRESPASSING. We have had trouble with some previous guests who have helped themselves to the neighbouring properties, and the neighbours do not appreciate it.

I have grown up in Amherstburg and have enjoyed this town with my family. I am a family man who works hard and appreciates the small things in life. As a Contractor, my mission is to continue to build quality homes and cottages that tourists and locals can enjoy. I love to travel and have brought some of my favourite ideas from our trips abroad into our Wine-Down Cottage for our guests to enjoy.
