This unique floating cabin building is like nothing you've seen before. The wine barrel floating cabin building is located in Essex, Ontario, Canada, and can accommodate up to 2 guests with one bedroom, and one bathroom. During your vacation stay, you'll have the entire houseboat to yourself. This is one of two floating red cedar panoramic wine barrel cabin buildings that are located in a gorgeous wine country. This is a glamping vacation experience on the water like no other. You will be tied to shore and floating in beautiful Fox Creek, a beautiful location that overlooks lush vineyards and surrounded by wildlife such as local bald eagles, ducks, Canadian geese, herons, bushy red-tailed foxes, and much more. The location of this floating wine barrel wood cabin is only minutes from all the major wineries, is comparable to no other.
Step out onto your floating dock from the edge of the creek and open the door to the unique floating wine barrel cabin building. Once inside you will immediately see the large panoramic window that overlooks the water and will be greeted by the beautiful smell of cedar that will make you feel relaxed. During your vacation stay, you can lounge on the comfy queen-sized bed and watch as nature passes by with your panoramic view into the country. At night you can gaze up through your window into the starry sky not polluted by city lights, as the moon reflects off the calm water of the creek.
Kick back and relax at your floating tiki bar and enjoy a bottle of wine from one of the local wineries, or grab a cold drink from the mini-fridge. You might stretch out on the front lounge chairs that are shaded by an umbrella and enjoy the view of the Cab Sauv grapes preparing themselves for harvest in the vineyard that surrounds you. The houseboat has a custom outdoor whiskey barrel sink, which works with the lithium powered outdoor bamboo shower, adding a fun touch to your unique vacation stay on the water. There is a personal port-a-john that is available for each unit and is equipped with a domestic chemical toilet.
The houseboats run off solar power which powers your indoor Honeywell fan, 19-inch flat-screen television and DVD player, water pump for your outdoor sink, and shower, along with the mini-fridge that is located in the tiki bar. The houseboat is also equipped with all the kitchenware, utensils, towels, and linens for your vacation stay. There is a Coleman barbecue grill onboard and a private fire pit that is located on land just in front of your lounge chairs for a cozy evening in.
There is a 9.4-foot rowboat that comes as an extra perk with your vacation stays to take in a romantic sunrise or sunset paddle up and down the creek water. You might even cast a line and catch one of the many bass, catfish, or bluegill that frequent the area. The houseboat is only a 10-minute walk to historic John R. Park Homestead with three private beaches, and to Farm Dog Cycles/The Fruit Wagon where you can pick up some local produce as well as rent a bike to tour the area and the local wineries.
