Lake Breeze Farmhouse, located in a rural area near picturesque Point Petre, is the definitive place to spend your vacation in Prince Edward County. Guests will marvel at the unique features and special touches that abound in this country retreat, including the cooling lake breezes from nearby Lake Ontario. The distinctive red barn across the road from the farmhouse is a local landmark and part of the 64 acre 'Lake Breeze Farm'. The circa 1860 The Settler's Dream heritage farmhouse is perfect for gatherings of family and friends with lots of space both indoors and out, and it's only minutes from the wineries and beaches.
Start you day by relaxing with a coffee on the front veranda while enjoying the colourful perennial gardens. If you like to explore, you'll find walking paths on the acreage surrounding the farmhouse. Perhaps someone will challenge you to a game of tennis or basketball on the private backyard court, or a game of horseshoes in the nearby pits. If relaxation is more your game, the large backyard offers several seating areas and a hammock as well as a sheltered patio. In the evenings, you can look forward to grilling up some summer treats on the BBQ and dining al-fresco in the new screened porch. Finish the day off by watching the spectacular sunset over the lake followed by some stories around the backyard fireplace.
Indoors you'll enjoy spending time in the vaulted Great Room which has been transformed from the original carriage house, with exposed stone and brick walls. This is where you'll also find a modern kitchen complete with gas range, breakfast bar, and wood stove. Next to the kitchen is a formal dining area flanked by a main floor bedroom and bathroom with windows overlooking the expansive back yard and patio area. On the other side of the main hall is a cozy living room with propane fireplace - perhaps a quieter area away from the bustle of the Great Room and a great spot to curl up with a book. From the living room, you'll find a windowed porch with access to a newly added and screened sun porch. Going back to the main hall, you can access the circular staircase that leads to a large landing on the second floor. There are three additional bedrooms and another full bathroom on this level. Throughout the original rooms of this heritage home are beautiful wood floors and outstanding woodwork from the 19th century.
Nearby are the friendly hamlets of Cherry Valley and Milford where you'll discover old-fashioned general stores and restaurants as well as the Mount Tabor Playhouse. The town of Picton is about 20 minutes away and offers grocery stores and all the basic supplies you'll need for your vacation or getaway. The Sandbanks beaches and hiking trails are about a 15 minute drive away and beach passes for two vehicles are included with your rental.
While you're visiting Prince Edward County, take advantage of the wonderful scenery & country roads, sand dunes & beaches, golf courses & fishing, festivals & farm markets that the County offers. Enjoy a day of tasting and discovery at local wineries and fine dining establishments. Visit the museums, theatre, art galleries, artisans, and antique shops that abound. You won't want to leave and you'll definitely want to return!
