Why Chris Ford chose Picton
We have been visiting the County for several years now, and decided to take the plunge and invest in the area. When we drove up to our place during the glory of fall colours, we fell in love with it right away. We hope you will enjoy your morning coffee looking out over the water, or a glass of wine around the fire pit at night.

A great stay!
Well located. Road to Sandbanks is easy. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed and even more... DVDs, games, boardgame, fire pit, bbq... everything we needed in the kitchen and bathroom, even a first aid kit!
A great spot!
This was a lovely place to stage our PEC foray from. It's bright and spacious and well-appointed.
Thanks so much for your positive review! We are pleased the place was the right spot for you!
Quiet paradise with a fantastic view!
The 1977 was a wonderful place to spend the week, It had all the conveniences of home and more. Pride of ownership is easily seen as it is clean and well maintained. The cottage is located close to Picton and has great access to Sandbanks Park and the numerous wineries and bakeries. Would love to return in the fall to enjoy some spectacular colours.
Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback! We'd love to host you again!
The property is easy to get to and in a convenient area between downtown Picton and PEC POIs
We (4 Adults and 3 children) spent our Victoria Day weekend at "The 1977" and had a marvellous time. Chris and Christine were gracious and thoughtful from the time we booked to the time we ended our stay and always making sure all of our needs were met. The property itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of affordability, space and comfort as well as accommodations that ensured we were all taken care of regardless of whether our plans were indoors because of a rainy day or outdoors around Prince Edward County (Chris and Christine provided info on where to go and even a day pass to Sandbanks). We had such a great time that we look forward to booking again in the future. Highly recommended!!!
So glad you had a wonderful stay! Thanks for the great feedback!
This home is well laid out, well equipped and conveniently located. In addition the owners, Chris and Christine, respond almost immediately to any questions that might arise. The decor is understated giving an airy feeling allowing visitors to add their own touch to make it feel like home away from home. It sleeps six comfortably; we were just two and enjoyed the master bedroom's comfy bed. Cooking in poses no problem as the kitchen is large with all the equipment needed to whip up a meal.
Worth a return visit.
Starlight Cottage - a Perfect Vacation Getaway
We enjoyed a lovely stay at Starlight Cottage. The cottage was bright and clean, perfectly organized and outfitted. Look forward to restful sleeps on soft organic cotton sheets. Conveniently located near Sand Dunes park and Sandbanks Outlet beach, the rental included the complimentary use of an Ontario Parks day pass! In addition to beach days, we enjoyed other activities such as a guided tour on horseback through woodland trails, at the ranch just minutes down the road, Three Dogs winery with jazz on the patio and oven-fired pizza, perusing the Old Bookstore in nearby Picton and exploring the Loyalist Museum in Adolphustown just a ferry ride away. BBQ on patio and excellent choices at Sobeys' service case in Picton. Evenings included family games nights and enjoying singing and s'mores around the campfire. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are happy to hear that you and your family had such a wonderful stay.
