PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY’S newest four-season resort has a name that speaks to the traveller in all of us. Inspired by their own travels and experiences, the owners of Wander created a unique blend of modern accommodations with reflections of bucolic cottage life recalling sunlit days and crackling campfire nights.
Tucked within four acres on the south shore of West Lake, Wander is a contemporary, luxurious yet understated retreat, perfect for couples and families alike. Ten beautifully appointed lakeside and poolside cabins welcome visitors year-round, cooled by air conditioning in the summer and warmed by heated floors and fireplaces in the winter. Sleeping up to six, these delightful two-bedroom suites have been designed with the utmost comfort in mind, offering spa baths, full kitchens outfitted with Miele appliances, and private decks. Each cabin’s décor and amenities has been carefully curated to showcase Prince Edward County crafters and Canadian manufacturers.
You’ll find everything you need to unplug and recharge here: fluffy robes, rattan swing chairs, blue-tooth speakers, private outdoor showers, even a S’mores kit and a bottle of local wine in the fridge.
Service and experience are of the utmost importance. Guests are treated to in-cabin check-in with a welcome drink, complimentary adult bicycles, and a programme of activities to entertain all, even on rainy days. Lounge beachside by day and enjoy stargazing by night. Calm and protected West Lake offers swimming in the summer, skating and ice fishing in the winter. The property has a pool and a Clubhouse with a coffee shop, bar, and gift shop stocked with creations by local artisans.
Prince Edward County is a treasure chest of intimate wineries, sandy beaches, sustainable farms, and charming communities. Whether it’s for just a weekend or the entire week, a stay at Wander will complement your discovery of this multi-faceted Southeastern Ontario gem.
