Perks for the Parents

This rustic lake house on the incredible Long Point Bay at Lake Erie is perfect for a peaceful family getaway with ½ acre of land, a zipline, direct lake access and a five minute walk to the beach. It sleeps up to 8 + 1. Kids will love spending hours playing in the sand and swimming in the shallow water and the property offers a variety of beach toys to enhance the fun. Parents will love the soft green grass for children to run around, play sports, jump on the trampoline, and zip on the outdoor zipline. The lake has ladder access or kids can jump in directly off the dock. Take a family kayak along the channels (the house comes with 2 kayaks, 1 adult-sized and 1 child-sized). There are plenty of life jackets available in varying sizes. If you’re looking for a special spot for families to disconnect from school and screens, and connect with each other, this could very well be the perfect place.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love all the fresh air and the abundance of outdoor space. They’ll spend their days in the lake or down at the pristine sandy beach (about a 5-minute walk) and will sleep soundly at night listening to the waves. If they enjoy fishing, they can fish right off the dock outside. Inside the cabin, there are plenty of family board games, puzzles, craft supplies, dress-up clothes, and children's books. For rainy days, the Wi-Fi is fast and there are 2 smart TVs set up on the main and upper floors for those who wish to watch a movie (Netflix, Disney+). A cushioned adjustable outdoor swing is perfect for cuddling on post-swim or sitting on while roasting marshmallows at night.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. Please note that the water is run on a pump system so the shower pressure is variable and while there is plenty of hot water, the tub takes a while to fill up. The property is kid-friendly with all cabinets tethered to the walls. Upstairs there’s an opening around the loft stairs where young children should take care. The area is very walkable, bike-able, hike-able and swim-able, but a car is required in order to pick up groceries, go into town (Port Rowan), explore the nearby hiking trails and forests and make the most of your location. The hosts will provide a guidebook to the area on check-in or digitally in advance! The hosts offer a variety of beach toys including buckets, shovels, balls, frisbees and beach games.

About the Location

This lake house is at Long Point, a hamlet on Lake Erie, Norfolk County in the province of Ontario. One of the highlights of this property is the proximity to the beach, which is only a 5-minute walk away. Long Point Provincial Park offers over 1.5 km of sandy beach on the warm waters of Lake Erie. Kids will love spending hours playing in the sand and swimming in the shallow water (many places have graduated entrances to the lake). In 1986, this unique area was recognized as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and as a globally significant bird area by Bird Life International. If you like birdwatching, you’re in the right place with over 300 different species of migrating birds and over 80 nesting birds on the Point. The Long Point Bird Observatory is nearby. Birds aside, there’s plenty to do here with wineries, breweries, forest ziplining, swimming, picnicking, and fishing. You can hire a fishing boat or a canoe and explore by water. Fly into Toronto, the area about 2.5 hours south by car.

Accommodation Details

This rustic lake house has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in a peaceful and friendly community with plenty of privacy. The main floor of the house has a kitchen, main living area, dining table for 6 to 8, a full bathroom, and 2 bedrooms. The kids’ bedroom has 2 bunk beds sleeping 4, and another bedroom has a trundle with 2 twin beds. The large upper loft has a queensize bed with lake views and space for a crib or extra blow-up mattress (or sleeping bags as the space is carpeted). A crib is provided on request. There’s an office set up on the top floor with excellent Wi-Fi. A small laundry room off the kitchen means you can keep on top of your littles' laundry during your stay. Outside is a large lawn, trampoline and outdoor seating next to the water.

Style Notes

Rustic lake cabin. This Lake Point house is set up for family living with a large dining table and an open plan living room with a contemporary woodburning stove. The kitchen is galley-style with wooden units and wood floor. The kids’ room with 2 bunkbeds is clean and comfortable with white wood furniture and soft striped bedding. The other 2 bedrooms have good quality mattresses and white wood paneling on the walls that continue the beachy theme. We love the relaxed vibe, the large plot for kids to roam and the direct lake access that makes exploring by water a breeze.
