The Empty Nest has two fully separate suites and plenty of property in order to practice social distancing. Breakfast times are staggered. Please do not hesitate to contact us to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you open all year round?

Yes! Summer in The County is truly bustling, but you can’t beat the tranquility of a crisp fall morning and the changing colours of the leaves. Winter brings all-white magic with the lake freezing over – a great time to pause and reflect. Explore the less crowded beaches and Millennium Trail on foot or snowshoes. Visit the wineries and enjoy no lineups or embrace the German concept of “Gemütlichkeit” – getting warm and snuggly indoors, with a glass of wine or hot chocolate, while watching the snow fall outside.

What time is check-in/check-out?

Check-in is between 4pm and 8pm, unless otherwise arranged. Check-out is at 11am.

Can I change my reservation?

Reservations may be changed based upon availability and outside of the 7-day cancellation period.

What's the cancellation policy?

Cancellation may be made 7 days prior to the booked date without charge. Cancellation within 7 days are non-refundable.

Can I smoke in the room?

Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the house or guest rooms.

What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?

Every accommodation is made to ensure your safety, comfort, and wellbeing. Kindly notify us of any dietary restrictions or sensitivities at the time of your booking and we’ll happily make something that suits your needs.

How far is the closest town for restaurants?

Wellington is the closest – approximately 20-minute drive.

Is the water safe for swimming?

Yes, the water is beautiful. The temperature is considerably warmer than Lake Ontario and there is no current/undertow to be concerned about. Enjoy your own private waterfront without the crowds. The bottom is stony so you may wish to bring water shoes.

Can I bring my own kayak, canoe, paddleboard or motorboat?

Yes, of course! Small watercraft can be launched right on property. There is also a public boat launch located at the end of the laneway for larger motorboats. Feel free to tie up at our dock.

Can I bring my children?

We are an adult-only accommodation. No infants or children.

Do you accommodate special occasions or requests?

Yes, we are happy to arrange a bottle of bubbly, fresh florals, or local treats to make your stay extra special! Please advise us at the time of your booking.

What meals do you serve onsite?

Breakfast is included with your stay. We also offer picnic lunches to-go and beautiful, hearty charcuterie boards if you wish to stay and dine in. Advance notice is appreciated..
