Escape the city in this gorgeous architect-designed 4 bedroom cottage. Privately located on 16 acres of forested land in the protected Pretty River Valley. Close to everything, minutes from the Bruce Trail. Perfect setup for both cozy, romantic get-aways as well as larger family/group fun!
In the heart of the Niagara escarpment this beautiful 1970's Cedar frame structure is situated on 16 acres of land that backs on to another 100 acres of crown land. There is nothing in sight but forest as far as you can see in every direction, and there are unobstructed views of the most breathtaking sunsets from the back deck. At the foot of the back yard there is a spring fed pond good for swimming (and weather permitting, skating!) and there are multiple hiking trails and a toboggan hill within steps of the cottage.
Renovated in 2012, the interior is a mix of modern and rustic. Four bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, the house comfortably sleeps nine people, eleven if you include the pull out sofa. As well, there is a crib available. Floor to ceiling windows flood the space with light and create the most amazing cross breeze.
A full kitchen stocked with all the usual amenities including an espresso machine, a dishwasher and a gas BBQ on one of the two decks. There are two full bathrooms and a delightful 4 person sauna. Other features include a wood burning fireplace, piano, a pingpong table and a paddleboat in the pond. During winter months there is regular snow maintenance on the private driveway so you can just sit back and relax.
