Accommodations at the Pelee Island Book House
The five upstairs bedrooms are themed around a particular author. Throughout the house there is plenty of 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.
More pictures are coming soon! The bedrooms are themed around a specific author that has ties to Windsor and Essex County, and in particular, to Pelee Island.
