Lake Ontario Waterfront Estate - Private 80-Acre Estate

Bedrooms 5
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday lodge in Barker


This 80 acre estate, located on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, is a nature-lover's paradise. Our cozy lakefront getaway features rustic barn wood walls, brick flooring, pine cabinets, and large windows to catch the breezes.

Watch the vivid sunsets with views to Toronto from every room; catch a glimpse of the deer running along the tree line; fish off your own private pier; take a walk through the fields to the pond. Relax and de-stress in the quiet country air. Gaze at millions of stars at night.

For a little excitement, drive 40 minutes along the scenic lakeshore trail to one of the Seven Wonders of the World - Niagara Falls. See the sites; stop by a casino, or cross the bridge into Canada. This property is only minutes to Olcott's Eighteen Mile Creek and Point Breeze's Oak Orchard Creek fishing areas.

No Smoking, Pets OK on a case-by-case basis.

Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

What kind and friendly hosts. The view and property location are breathtaking. The home is a rustic, cozy retreat. It was very accommodating for our multigenerational family vacation. We enjoyed the sunsets on the deck, relaxing in the breeze, swimming in the lake, fishing, kayaking, and exploring for rocks. The lake is transformational from day to day. It is still one day and lively the next. We enjoyed the crashing waves after a storm. We took some beautiful photos. We walked the shoreline and explored the trails. The owners dogs were the highlight of our vacation. They are like animated joy. So friendly and happy. I called to Beau one afternoon from the lake and the next thing I knew he had jumped in and to swam to greet me. This was the best and most memorable moment of our vacation. Lovely vacation.

Charming, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. Welcoming, charming and beautiful. The sounds and view of the lake, the coziness of the layout with ample of space for large families. We couldn't ask for a better place to escape to during our family reunion. Our hosts, Tom and Sue, were gracious and accommodating. Planning our next trip already!

Paradise on Ontario

  • 5 of 5

We rented Tom and Sue's place to be close to the site where our son was to be married. The house and grounds lived up to the pictures and descriptions, and more! First, the view is amazing, and it was so relaxing to fall asleep to the sounds of Lake Ontario lapping on the shore at night.

With help and advice from Tom, we staged the rehearsal dinner at this house. It was a great success, and everyone was impressed with the beauty of the setting.

Our family came and went it waves, and we always had a bed to put them in.

Thanks, Tom and Sue. You couldn't have been more accommodating, and we will always remember what a fabulous time we had in your lovely home.

Surprise 80th Birthday Party for our Parents

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this lodge from Tom & Sue on 3 different occasions. The first time for a vacation, the second for a family reunion, & this most recent time we rented for the week in order to have a surprise 80th birthday party for my parents. Each visit has been absolutely wonderful. Tom & Sue are the greatest & the rental property is fantastic. We arrived on Friday afternoon & set the lodge up for the surprise birthday party on Saturday. We had 27 people come in for the party most from out of state. We had the party catered by a local company called Two Susters and the food was excellent. We rearranged the living room furniture to accommodate 3 8' tables & had an absolutely beautiful view of the lake. My parents were so happy to have all their children celebrate such a special occasion with them and the house was comfortable & spacious enough so that we all had a great visit. This location has it all; comfort, charm; privacy, and beautiful views of the lake front. If you are seeking a place to relax & get away or to spend time with family or friends this is it!

Holiday get away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved the house and property. Beautiful view of the lake. Especially enjoyed waking up to the sound of waves rolling into the breakwall. Plenty of small town activities to keep things interesting. Tom and Susan were perfect hosts. They even brought over some 'welcoming' adult beverages after we arrived too late to make it to the grocery store. Our dog loved the hike around the property and playing with the owner's dogs. We would definitely recommend this rental to other travellers.

Like staying with family, but better

  • 5 of 5

I house was everything that was promised. The kitchen was well appointed; there was a wide array of cookware, dinnerware, etc. The owners were extremely gracious and helpful. We have stayed in many places but rarely have we considered going back, as there are just too many places we want to visit BUT we would go back to this property again because we really felt like this was our second home.
