The picturesque waterfronts in Prince Edward County easily lend themselves to family fun and waterfront adventure, where endemic customs breed a distinct local charm and people speak with unhurried conviction. The belle of the ball in Prince Edward County is Sandbanks Provincial Park, and at the brink of these giant dunes rests Sunrise Cottage Resort. Here, quaint country cottages line the water's edge, and celebrated vineyards, manicured golf greens and hiking trails assemble across the resort's fringes.
Poolside cottages are convenient for guests who want easy access to the pool, while Lakeside cottages offer guests a true retreat, with unobstructed views of West Lake best enjoyed from the patio. All cottages come with full size fridges, stoves, ovens and the accouterments necessary for crafting your own meals (including outdoor propane barbeques). Other cottage amenities include complimentary WiFi, separate living spaces, full four-piece bathrooms and cable TV, and elsewhere on the resort you'll find campfire access, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts and boat rentals.
Prince Edward County is a place best uncovered by boat, so enjoy the lake from the bow of a canoe before heading over to waterfront luxury at Indulgence Spa and Salon where you can enjoy cleansing foot baths, hot stone massages or age-defying facials. For something slightly more active, enjoy the gentle breezes that roll over the greens at Wellington on the Lake Golf Course where tree-lined manicured fairways meet link style holes, and remember to check out the bird watching, swimming, fishing and hiking opportunities that abound in nearby Sandbanks National Park.
For a family-friendly dining experience check out the over-stuffed sandwiches at Tall Poppy Cafe, or for fine dining seek out the Angus steaks and braised rabbit at Blumen Garden Bistro. To complement dinners in Prince Edward County make sure to sample its celebrated wine. Sandbanks Estates has a modern edge, offering self-guided vineyard tours and a contemporary art exhibit, while The Grange establishes a quaint, community feel with picnics and walking tours and Casa Dea is a boutique winery focused on crafting personalized visits.
