ACCOMMODATIONS AT THE PELEE ISLAND BOOK HOUSE
Throughout the house there is plenty of comfortable seating and room to spread out and find a private writing nook, with a large open concept kitchen and dining room, library, front porch, and airy sunroom. You can go outside and read under a shady tree, or take your laptop to the patio table overlooking the water. The Book House is a place writers can go to get away from the distractions of daily life; however, if you require the occasional email update there is wifi access. During retreats and residencies, breakfast will be available at at your own convenience at the breakfast bar, and lunch and dinner are catered at set times. Food allergies and dietary requirements can be accommodated, as all meals are freshly made. There will be tea and coffee available at the breakfast bar at all hours, since some writers are early risers while others like to burn the midnight oil. The small town of Pelee Island offers a winery, bakery, ice-cream store, micro-brewery, and an LCBO, for all your epicurean needs.
The bedrooms are themed around a specific author that has ties to Windsor and Essex County, and in particular, to Pelee Island. There are 2 single bedrooms facing the yard, and 3 larger lake-view bedrooms that accommodate one to three guests. The larger bedrooms can be shared or made into a single bedroom with a king-sized bed. There is a maximum of 10 participants at each retreat or residency. Please see the "FEES" page for all tuition costs.
