Ideally situated to explore all that Prince Edward County has to offer, Lightwood House is a beautiful retreat for family and friends

Tucked behind a row of evergreens, Lightwood House enjoys a private, park-like setting minutes from Sandbanks Provincial Park. Its inviting interior mixes eclectic furnishings with artful touches. Outside its sparkling pool and expansive patio beckon on warm summer days while a nearby firepit is the perfect place to cozy up to an evening bonfire.

At 2,200 square feet Lightwood House offers plenty of room to unfold. A bungalow, it features a well-appointed kitchen, sunken living room with wood fireplace, cozy den (with sofa bed), four guestrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and laundry room – all on one floor. Its dining room sits 6 to 10 and opens onto a poolside patio equipped with a gas barbecue and variety of outdoor seating options.

Lightwood House is located in the community of West Lake. The golden sand beaches and hike trails of Sandbanks Provincial Park are a quick 5-minute drive away. Prince Edward County’s main hub of Picton and picturesque Bloomfield – a great place to while away an afternoon – are both just 10 minutes away. The lakeside village of Wellington is less than 20 minutes. Isaiah Tubbs Resort and Westlake Wakeboard School are within walking distance.
