If you’re hankering for an escape from the city but aren’t looking to zip too far from the downtown core, this Lake Ontario respite will suit you perfectly.
Conveniently located in Burlington, the lodgings are just 40 minutes from downtown Toronto, and an hour from Niagara on the Lake. Easy to get to and close enough to home for a last-minute visit, the space starts at $1,125 per night and requires a seven-day minimum stay.
But, once you see what you’re working with, odds are you’ll want to stick around for longer.
Spanning over 10,000 square feet, the living that happens within these walls is opulent. We’re talking about a formal living room with a baby grand piano, and a formal dining room, both with their own gas fireplace. The gourmet kitchen is complete with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, as well as French doors that lead guests out to an expansive upper terrace.
The great room — ideal for cozying up with drinks in hand for long hours of laughter — boasts two-storey high ceilings and windows to write home about. And with the master retreat on the main floor, quick access to its cushy bed, spacious walk-in closet, and spa-like ensuite is always right there.
When you are so inclined up head upstairs, you may as well take the elevator to get there. (Yes, you read that right.)
On arrival, you’ll find four additional bedrooms, including a second master, each with their own ensuite. The upper level is complete with a sitting area from which you can enjoy perfect lake views. And while, indeed, all this sounds lavish on its own, we’re not yet into the thick of what this property has to offer.
In addition to many areas for entertainment across each floor, lake-facing gardens, and the promise of an outdoor kitchen to come (here’s looking at you, spring 2021), this vacation home is complete with a home theatre, a gym, and a spa bath featuring a sauna and steam room.
You’ll find these extras across the home’s lower level, where an elegant bar and rec-and-games space also wait.
As ad-ons, concierge services are available, alongside catering, private chef services, daily maid service, and water taxis. To amp up the experience of your stay, you can enjoy a yoga lesson on the dock, rent a boat, or have groceries, wine, and beer delivered, which will free up your time so you can simply enjoy your vacation. If you please, cocktails can even be waiting for you on arrival.
Chill House on the Lake has availability as early as mid-December, which carries through winter and into next year’s warmer months. So whether you’re looking for a chilly season getaway, or something to look forward to come summer, this magnificent rental should do the trick.
