Have fun in the sun. Swim, fish, boat or float in the lake. Bike, hike, golf, or simply kick back, enjoy the incredible lake views from the hammock, or from any room in the house. Marvel at crashing waves or calm moonlit waters at your very own private beach. Wile away the hours bird-watching (bald eagles, herons, woodpeckers, kingfishers, waterfowl galore).

Location

Dunnville, Ontario, Canada

We are in a peaceful rural area minutes south of Dunnville, only 1-2 hours (depending on traffic) from the GTA. We are among only 1-2 rows of houses at the lakeshore, along a 2 km country road, ending at a beautiful sandy beach (that is available only to residents only of our dead-end road). At that end we have a provincial park. At the entrance to our road is a lovely 18 hole golf course. Slightly east is a small town, with restaurants, public park, public boat launch, and plenty of great places for fishing, cycling, hiking, etc. There is an RCAF museum nearby. Fishing charters also readily available in the neighbourhood (Lake Erie Perch is served at most restaurants in the area). Port Dover is an hour east - one can spend hours browsing through gift shops, spend the day at the sandy beach, go on a cruise or dine in many small cafes and restaurants. Niagara Falls, one of the world's natural wonders, is only one hour to our west. Nearby, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada's premiere wine country, is also a lovely spot to shop, dine, enjoy theatre, or tour wineries and sample our wonderful ice-wines (a specialty of ours, but a rarity anywhere else in the world).

I always dreamed of retirement on the water and this is my dream retirement home. Until retirement though, I am blessed to be able to share my home with others who love nature and the peace and tranquility of waterfront living, no matter the season. Retired from the Canadian Armed Forces, I still love working for National Defence as a scientist specializing in human performance. My hobbies include music, travel, gardening, swimming, boating, and just soaking up the sun. My wonderful partner John is in IT technical sales. He loves to cook, entertain friends and family, build things, and he reads voraciously. We have 3 children between us, all extremely bright and successful young adults. Enjoy our home away from home - you'll be helping us achieve our dreams while you achieve your dream of an amazing waterfront vacation!
