About Colin Dickinson

I have been visiting Prince Edward County since I was ten years old. In the late 1990s, my parents bought a vacation home in the County and I knew that someday I wanted to own my own piece as well. My wife and I love it there and the kids can't wait to get back.

Colin Dickinson purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Colin Dickinson chose Prince Edward

Peaceful Skies, as we call our vacation home, is truly a retreat away from the city. It rests on seven acres, well set back from the road, secluded from neighbors, its a welcome slow down to life, yet with all the amenities you could want: gourmet kitchen, beautiful views from high above Lake Ontario, massive deck, manicured grounds, Apple TV, etc.

Modern, clean and kid-friendly

  • 5 of 5

We spent Victoria Day Long Weekend at Colin's place with three other families with kids. The place was absolutely spotless with a beautiful open concept living room and kitchen. There was even a baby gate available so the adults were able to leave the little kids running around. We enjoyed eating on the deck while we watched our kids play in the front yard which was very well maintained. Smarlock system was also very convenient so that we didnt have to worry about losing the house keys. Short drive into Picton downtown as well as amazing wineries around the house was great. Would love to come back in the future. Thanks for the stay!

Peaceful and tasteful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in March 2017 for a weekend get-together with my friends - four couples and 2 kids. We had an excellent time! The cottage is easy to access from the main road yet secluded. Inside is spacious and very comfortable - big bedrooms, comfortable furniture in the leaving room and a nice modern kitchen. The cottage is full of light and the view is spectacular. The owner was very accommodating right from the start - answering all of my questions promptly. There was a lot to do in the house - magazines to read, pool to play and entertainment. There is a beautiful waterfall bordering the property and access to the water front with a lot of excellent vantage points to take pictures, have walks and watch wild life. We saw ospreys and couple of bald eagles and lots and lots of Canada geese and ducks.

This is an excellent place to have a laid back weekend and enjoy nature. We will recommend the place to all of our friends and come back if opportunity arises.

As Conde Nast Traveller states, Prince Edward County is "an island on the edge of Lake Ontario where it now seems all my friends, grown-up and with kids of their own, escape each summer; a sleepy, secret place where it's possible to roll back the decades to a simpler, kinder time."
