When you stay at Anchors Away, you have the private use of a comfortable, fully furnished main floor of a house.

Both bedrooms have a ceiling fan and central air conditioning. Unlike many of the rental homes in the area, all linens, towels, and paper products are included for you convenience. There is also a fully equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs. BBQ facilities are found on the covered back deck, where you can relax on the patio furniture after a day of fun, while a cool breeze blows over from the lake. Springtime means it will soon be time for the famous bird migration through the Point Pelee area. Birders 'flock' from around the world to see the amazing menagerie of birds that pass by our region. There are plenty of summertime activities around Leamington to be enjoyed as well. Bring along your canoe for a paddle in the Point Pelee marsh or your clubs for a couple rounds of golf at Erie Shores Golf Course, two doors away. The flat terrain allows for an easy pedal around town or along the waterfront roads. You can also catch a ride on the ferry over to Pelee Island for an afternoon of sight seeing and a stop at the Pelee Island Winery's facility there. It's a good place to grab a light lunch and a refreshing glass of wine. If rain does threaten to spoil your day out, don't just find a place to curl up and wait it out! Leamington and the surrounding area has become quite renown for its wineries. There are several in the area, including the Pelee Island winery, that offer tours and samplings. Yum!! Located across the road from Lake Erie, 0.2km from the Erie Shores Golf Course, and 4.5km from Point Pelee National Park. Conveniently located close to restaurants, grocery stores, and marina. 'ANCHORS AWAY'! - The place to stay AWAY from home! Important Information: ALLERGY ALERT - Cat on Premise (in owner's basement apartment). The owner lives on-site in a basement apartment that has a separate entrance. The phone in the apartment does not allow for long distance calls without a long distance calling card.More

About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a lovely area across the road from Lake Erie. It is a two minute walk to the Erie Shores Golf Course and a short bike ride to Point Pelee Natl. Park, Leamington marina, and the Municipal park w. beach and playground. Other attractions include; Seacliff Park,Beach and Splashpad; Pelee Island Winery in Kingsville; and a host of other activities, such as fishing, SCUBA diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, biking trails, Leamington Recreational Complex, etc. Most of the major shopping areas and restaurants are very close as well. If you are willing to give Leamington a chance for a stay, I can honestly say, that you will not leave disappointed!
Getting around
There is no public transport right near the house, so your vehicle or bicycle are your best options for getting around the area.
