Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

The most spectacular views can be seen from most places on this property.

This lovely restored century home located on 2 acres of land is one of two houses or identical twins which was largely rebuilt in 1999. Originally constructed about 1871, this home was primarily for the hired hands on the farm. The farm has long ceased to exist and this home as been entirely a rental for all but a few short weeks of its long life. The house is in a rural location but yet only about 10 minutes from the Burlington waterfront and the old core. Many points on the deck, property or through windows have a view of Lake Ontario or Hamilton Harbour. Even the industrial section of Hamilton is lit up at night and provides an interesting view. You will enjoy all the serenity of the outdoors and yet only need to travel 5 minutes to a large grocery store and theatres. He house is also located just a 5 minute drive from the GO station and is a very short Uber or taxi ride to the property. The home sits on 2 cares of land and has 2 houses which are all short term rentals which makes it ideal for large families We are beside the Bruce Trail and a 40 minute walk or 3 minute drive to a very nice waterfall you can stand on top of or walk behind. If you are interested in walking we also are located beside a landlocked piece of conservation land with a few kilometres of trails which are essentially private. We often walk the trails and never see a soul. This is a bargin for what is offered.

There's a pet fee for short stays by the day and longer stays by the period. please ask

Peaceful, clean, cozy, and perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a seamless visit renting this house from Jeff. It was a sad occasion for our family this week, but the house was an ideal place to gather and grieve with our extended family. The kitchen was set up with everything we needed to make our meals, and our kids enjoyed baths in the clawfoot tub! The property is so large and spacious outside which made for lots of time outside for the kids. Bedding was warm and cozy, rooms fit all 6 of us perfectly. Thank you Jeff for everything!

Excellent stay in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful stay in a beautiful setting. The cottage is extremely well equipped to cater for all your needs. The owner even provided some relishes in the fridge!

The bedding is very comfortable and speaks of impeccable taste.

The views are great and if you enjoy hiking, the Bruce trail is right on your door step

Highly recommended

Thank you Jeffery for everything.

The loction was beautiful and the house was great he had all the little extras we needed!

It was great to start the day Watching the sunset on the deck with a cup of coffee while the birds sing and to get out of the busy city in the evening and enjoy a campfire. It was so peaceful.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Blue Cottage. It was just like the pictures and perfectly located to get the quiet of the country but close enough to the amenities of Burlington.

Sehr ruhig, genau das richtige für uns !

  • 4 of 5

Das kleine Häuschen war top ausgestattet und sauber in ruhiger Lage ! Ein schöner Ausgangspunkt für viele Aktivitäten. Auch der persönliche Kontakt mit dem Vermieter und dass er mit uns Kanu fahren, und wander ging war echt spass gemacht ! Uns 5 hat es sehr gut gefallen hier !

Ein kleiner Tipp für den Vermieter: ein paar outdoor Spiele wie Federball etc. wären gut.

Wir kommen sehr gerne mal wieder.
