Description

To our guests: We miss you and are looking forward to the day we can welcome you to this beautiful County we call home. Currently Ontario is under a STAY-AT-HOME ORDER, and all Non-Essential Travel has been banned. With these orders we are unable to host you currently. However, we are accepting bookings from June 2, 2021 onward. Please note, these orders may be extended, and if so we are offering 100% refund if you book and we are unable to Host you due to Covid-19.


You have to love someone named Herman Melville and we all loved Moby Dick. This cottage is one unit of two which may be rented out by other guests during your stay.

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

Alternately you may book The Conrad as a whole which features 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 10 guests maximum.

The Melville offers two bedrooms and one three-piece washroom on the same level. One bedroom has a great modern queen size bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. New linens, towels and bedding are provided. The Melville has two parking spaces. There is central air conditioning throughout. 

Enjoy new smart TVs with Satellite, Apple TV, HDMI cables and free WiFi, books and puzzles.  Complete with beach pass access to the world renowned Sandbanks and Prince Edward County beaches and parks, all you need are your personal items, beach towels and a plan to relax.

The large living room with all new furnishings leads onto a glass solarium, complete with cozy lounge seating, that literally hangs over the water so you feel you are floating on the water. If you want to step outside there is a lovely deck that is separated from the deck of the other unit for added privacy.

The fully equipped kitchen has a view across the deck toward the passing sail boats and sunset. Your group can eat inside at a table for four or out on the deck. A propane BBQ will allow one to stay out of the kitchen.
