The Sandpiper, our sunlit, three-bedroom, all-season cottage home just a five-minute stroll one block south and down the grass banks to Port Burwell’s family-friendly beach, is a vacation gem in this quaint and funky village on Lake Erie’s ocean-like north shore.

With its inviting, furnished wrap-around deck, surrounded by lush perennial gardens, you may never go inside! But once you do, you’ll find air-conditioned comfort in an open-concept living room, a well-appointed kitchen, and a large downstairs family room with laundry - all tastefully decorated with a coastal flair, featuring country antiques, first-rate mattresses, bedding and towels, and a steaming shower-bath. Amenities include wireless internet, Netflix, ceiling fans, propane BBQ, spacious shaded yard, fire pit, and on-site parking large enough to accommodate two vehicles and a boat trailer. The deck is gated to provide safety and security for young children and pets. Completely non-smoking/vaping.

Just a tree-lined block from mainstreet, The Sandpiper offers easy access to restaurants and shops, the marine museum, the oldest wooden lighthouse on the Great Lakes, submarine tours at HMCS Ojibwa, Big Otter Creek’s marinas and fish market, and our provincial park with hiking trails and miles of unspoiled dune-rich beach.

The Sandpiper sits in a pretty residential neighbourhood of historic homes, midway between old Trinity Church and the lighthouse, with the public library, gazebo, and basketball court just around the corner. With the cenotaph garden on one side and the nearest homes facing other streets, it’s a private oasis surrounded by large and gracious neighbouring shade gardens.

Paddle, swim, fish, bird-watch, hike, bike, or just hole up with a good book. The Sandpiper is a village retreat in the heart of Canada’s Carolinean landscape. A perfect getaway for any time of year, centrally located for exploring all of Norfolk and Elgin Counties’ Lake Erie coastal region, with spectacular bird-watching opportunities on your doorstep, miles of quiet paved roads for cycling and the unspoiled Otter for kayaking.

Summer Weekly rental: $1100. Minimum stay: one week, Saturday-Saturday, during July and August; two nights other times. Contact us to inquire about longer stays, or spring/fall/winter vacations, when we can offer reduced rates. We are happy to welcome up to two (2) cats/dogs.
