This vacation rental is very centrally located in the Golden Horseshoe area, just north of Burlington and less than 15 minutes from Lake Ontario. So if you wish to visit Toronto, Niagara Falls, or many of the more local points of interest, this is definitely the place to be!
The house is nicely situated on a beautifully treed private 1.5 acre lot and surrounded by a quiet 95 acre farm. Charcoal BBQ Grill: Big Green Egg, makes a great steak!
