Description

Named after Jules Verne - the literary giant who gave us the wonderful sea story Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. A two level cottage, renovated with all new furnishings, The Verne is perfect for two couples as it allows for plenty of space to be together and space to be apart.  Your attention will be fully engaged by the view west over the water and passing sailboats from the large cathedral ceiling living room and breezy glass/screened solarium. NEW THIS YEAR: Private dock and terrace.

NOTE: For weeklong stays year round: a week is considered 6 nights, Sunday to Saturday. The owner leaves 24 hours in between guests for Covid safety measures.

Due to Prince Edward County bylaws, this property sleeps maximum 4 guests plus 2 children (age 9 and under). Dogs allowed (see below). 

The Solarium has dining for 6 and a separate lounge area. The open kitchen with large island is fully equipped for the aspiring chef. A propane BBQ outside keeps the heat out of the kitchen. 

There is one 3 piece washroom and two bedrooms - one bedroom on each level, each complete with new luxury queen size beds and linens. There are wall units in the bedrooms. The ground floor bedroom has a separate sitting area. Towels, bedding and blankets are provided.
 
There are new smart TVs with Satellite, Apple TV, HDMI cables and free WiFi, books and puzzles. There is ample parking and beach passes for access to all the world renowned Sandbanks and Prince Edward County beaches and parks. 3 passes total included with your rental.

We really enjoyed our stay here! We spent most of our time in the sunroom enjoying the amazing lake views! The cottage is on a private road in a beautiful quiet neighbourhood, just minutes from Picton! And the beds were the most comfortable we have ever experienced! Highly recommended!

What an amazing property. The Verne cottage is beautifully furnished and has absolutely everything you need. We stated a week with my grandchildren and had a wonderful time. We will definitely be back.

Unforgettable weekend of fine food & drink in luxe comfort at Shorehill Cottages. Water & sunset views melted away city stress within minutes after arriving. Space sophisticated & warm with whimsical touches and every thoughtful amenity provided. Day touring the Countys best yielded stellar bubblies, chardonnays, and pinot noirs just waiting to be discovered in idyllic vineyards deep down rural roads in the middle of seemingly nowhere. Intimate dinners for eight, late nights with friends savouring the bounty of our tastings, revelling in style at the Vernehighly recommended.

We had a wonderful week at Shorehill cottage, and would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit PEC. The cottage is in a sucluded lakefront neighborhood, yet only five minutes drive to Picton downtown. We spent most of our time in the sunroom enjoying an amazing lakeview. Our host, John, is extreaming helpful. During our stay, there happened to be a heatwave, John immediately brought us additional AC unit and fans to make sure we are comfortable.

Shorehill Cottages was an absolute treat to stay at. We stayed at the Verne Cottage and I have nothing but good things to say. Modernly finished with a cottage feel. Beautiful sun room and views. Close to downtown Picton if you need anything. Highly recommended.

The Verne was great. Clean, cozy and charming - exactly as shown on the posting. Beds were extra comfortable and the view was stunning. Close to Picton and wineries. Galen was very welcoming and accommodating. I would consider going back on a next trip to PEC. Thank you for everything.

Four of us were very comfortable in the Verne cottage. Awesome amenities, scenery and thoughtful details. My friends enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and I couldn't get enough of the cross breeze passing through the veranda. Wicked views of sunsets, sunrises and storms. We will be back. Now I want to try the other three cottages. Thanks for a memorable stay Shorehill Cottages.

WOW! This place has it all! I stayed with 3 friends in the beautifully appointed Verne: its wide open concept space and well-appointed living area and bedrooms look directly out on the water where, despite it being November, we were able to relax each night on the enclosed veranda and see the sun set. Its location is ideal: anybody looking to visit and be within proximity to the beaches, vineyards, restos and tows, this is the perfect location to plan your County experience. Highly recommend!
