"People have been coming here for ages!" Located on the Bay of Quinte in picturesque Adolphustown, Ontario the Daverne Farmhouse is perfect for larger gatherings of families and friends, while cozy enough for smaller groups. With 6 bedrooms, a country kitchen, 3 bathrooms, laundry facilities, a games room with ping pong, a dining room, living room, television room and den, the Farmhouse provides spacious, comfortable living and lots of fun for children and adults.
Of course, why leave the property? Vacationers will enjoy swimming and the excellent fishing in the Bay of Quinte, and boats can be launched at the nearby Glenora Ferry, Adolphustown Park, or Hay Bay Boat Launch. Relax and play on the maple-shaded lawn, enjoy the views of the Bay from the large, hill-top veranda, grill a summer feast on the BBQ, watch the sun set over the rolling fields, and enjoy a campfire under the stars before calling it a night... and then get up and do it again!
Golfers have their pick of several public courses in Picton, Napanee and Bath, while cyclists will love the open roads of Adolphustown Township and nearby Prince Edward County. The County's several orchards and vineyards (great for wine tasting tours) and the famous Sandbanks Provincial Park are all within an easy drive, as are several local historic sites, including the UEL Heritage Centre in Adolphustown Park, where Loyalist settlers first landed in Upper Canada in 1784.

Best of all, the Farmhouse is easy to get to. Located only 40 minutes west of Kingston, an hour from the U.S. border, 4 hours from Montreal, and about 2.5 hours from Ottawa and Toronto (with no Muskoka traffic), the Farmhouse has made a wonderful meeting spot for family and friends since 1815 - people have been coming here for ages!
